Product Description

“Nonstop action and heart-melting romance on every page!" — Julie Ann Walker, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

The new SBG novel from the author of Exchange of Fire

When her secretly filmed tryst shows up on the internet, Michelle Alger goes on the run. She has no choice. Not only was her one-night stand the son of a US senator, but he’s been murdered—and she’s the number one suspect. With both the senator and an avenging drug lord on her trail, her life is in danger. There’s only one man she can trust. He saved her once, but will he still be her hero six years later?

Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery. Six years ago his team of Green Berets rescued her from the torturous clutches of a Colombian cartel, and he’s never forgotten her. His personal and covert mission: find Michelle before anyone else. When he and Michelle do meet again, the sparks are explosive and consuming. They’re also dangerous as hell.

Because with each new bit of evidence, Jeremy suspects that Michelle’s innocence may be a ruse—a beautiful trap set by a woman who has even more secrets yet to bare.

P.A. DePaul dazzles me again in the second installment of her SBG series!

I’m so glad we’re back with the Delta Squad as they are tasked with finding a murder suspect for a senator’s son. When the suspect turns out to be a woman from Cappy’s past, he immediately starts looking for her. The woman he saved years ago could not be a cold-blooded killer…could she? What starts out as a murder investigation turns into a multi-faceted enigma that challenges all of Cappy’s beliefs in the woman of his dreams. Buckle your seatbelts folks, because you’re in for a wild ride!

I really enjoyed SHADOW OF DOUBT! I loved Cappy and about fell out of my chair every time he took his shirt off! What a dream boat! The story was engaging and held my interest throughout the book and pulled at my heartstrings several times. Michelle’s journey has been a tough one; suffering from PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) from her captivity six years prior really did a number on her. I loved how Cappy grounded her and was able to pull her from the PTSD episodes.

I thought Cappy and Michelle were paired well together but I did feel Michelle’s character was a little one dimensional. All we really saw of Michelle was her fragility after the kidnapping. She did toughen up at the end and I liked how she was able to start to empower herself. I’ll have to wait to see how she’s developed in the next books in order to see her depth and range.

I did have one tiny issue with Romeo. Yes, he is a sexy ladies’ man and it’s obvious from EXCHANGE OF FIRE that he and Magician—a female Delta Force team member—have undeniable chemistry but they aren’t together. What I didn’t like was that I felt Romeo exploits that around Magician by flirting and hitting on other women right in front of her.

P.A. DePaul has done it again! I loved the first book Exchange of Fire, and Shadow of Doubt was just as phenomenal! The telling of Michelle and Cappy's story is one filled with twists and turns and yet told so well that you never get lost. The two of them had such a connection to each other when they first met, and the awful circumstances that bring them back together prove the connection to each other is still there and going strong. Cappy being there for Michelle and helping her deal with PTSD was such a wonderful thing. I cannot wait for the next book from the Delta Squad!

Finding herself framed for murder, and caught on tape, Michelle runs, and needs help. She reaches out to the man who saved her six years ago, hoping he can come through with his old promise..
Jeremy gave up his old life and signed up with the covert organization Delta Squad, but never forgot his last assignment in Colombia, or the woman he saved. When she calls for help, he'll do whatever he can to help.
Contemporary romance, action, suspense and smutty fluff in a great combo.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book and author worth recommending. 22 April 2015
By Jacque - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Do you like books packed with action, intrigue, mystery? How about ones with great characters and romance? How about a book you can completely lose yourself in? Then Shadow of Doubt, the second book in the SCG series by P.A. DePaul is a book you’ll want to read.

I missed out on the first book and in a series, sometimes that can spell disaster. Not a chance here! I get that most of the characters have shared history (Probably from the first book) but the author has presented it in a way that I easily caught on and I never felt lost. Cappy and Michelle were pretty awesome. Both with some pretty tragic history, especially Michelle. It wasn’t easy to watch her go through PTSD but it was endearing to see Cappy help her through her episodes. Kudos to the author for allowing her character to develop into her empowerment without having her PTSD magically go away. There is a natural development of their relationship, despite all the crisis’s they go through. Their HEA was all I could wish for. The secondary characters were amazing. No fillers here! They played such a great part I would love to see them all get their own stories.

As for the story itself, it was great. I usually don’t go for military stories. They usually contain the same guns, bad guys, workaholic, yada, yada, yada pieces that really don’t excite me. Even though it had the military some aspects it wasn’t enough to bore me. Instead, I found this action packed story hit the ground running luring me in from the beginning. Lots of twists and surprises had me completely engaged. Although I kept thinking why did everybody keep gunning for this poor girl? What could Michelle have done to piss off so many people! The reveals and the whys were fairly complex once I find out what everything was revolving around. Okay maybe I would have figured it out a little earlier had I read the first book. But that’s okay, I still enjoyed the not knowing the story provided.

This is my first book by P.A. DePaul. Gotta say, I really enjoyed it. Ms. DePaul has a way of grabbing the reader’s attention and holding it until the very end. I’m actually excited to know that there will be more books in the series. This is definitely a book and author, worth recommending.

I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did I love this? - You bet I did!!! 30 April 2015
By Books Laid Bare & Books Laid Bare Boys - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Since this is only book two then I have high hopes for the remainder of the series.
Shadow of Doubt is a ride that will push and pull you along with it as it runs amok across your kindle or as the pages flip through your fingers.
It was a smart move on the author’s part to switch things up from the scenarios that we encountered in book one, it ensured that Shadow of Doubt had its own pace and it held true to what it has to say.
This is not just a story of romance and relationship it has a tougher edge to it, an undercurrent of mystery and right from the get-go, we are left looking for more from Michelle and Jeremy. Having been part of the team that rescued a battered Michelle from hell years earlier – I think he always knew that she would be back in his life, I mean when he gave her his name and number all those years ago – he made sure she knew that he would be there if she needed him again – it was just a matter of waiting for the call.
But their next meeting though is not until significantly later than I had hoped and neither of them are willing to take what they can see at face value.
I was intrigued by the events that the author wove through the story, there was a little bit of everything and I have to say that what I liked best what the connection between Jeremy and Michelle.
Although they fought what they knew they were feeling inside, I mean a blind man could see there was no running away from it but damn did they take their sweet time getting together.
Michelle’s past can be described as having been painful at best and at its very worst it could be positively described as heart-breaking but she is a tough cookie and is prepared to fight what tries to hold her back in her determination to be the woman she wants. It is not all plain sailing but there is no keeping her down – and I thought that was a powerful message to send – life is a series of events that may shape you but doesn’t define you!
Jeremy is a fighter in every sense of the word, this military colossus has his head screwed on but that is not to say that it is cloud free, he battles demons on a daily basis and keeps his heart under lock and key but it takes mental strength to be able to do what he does day in day out, people’s lives depend on him and his ability to isolate his feelings- but is this a trait he has mastered too well?
The group and the guys made for this being a phenomenal read- I loved it. I loved the pace and flow of the story, the fact that I had to learn to expect the unexpected and that the two of them made me wait until they eventually got to where they needed to be.
Waiting with baited breath for book 3

Rated: 4.5 Stars

I enjoyed book one and am happy to say book two delivered in spades. The action was fast paced and never let up. Between the danger hitting them from all angles and the sexual tension, I couldn’t put it down. Yes there were times where I had to work at keeping track of their real names, code names and aliases but it didn’t detract from the overall story too badly. I liked the backstory with Cappy and Michelle but thought they held out on their ‘urges’ a bit too long. Over all I love the storyline and the SBG group in general. A fun read that leaves you yearning for the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars P. A. DePaul delivers 22 April 2015
By Janet - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Superb writing takes this Action Romance to the next level. Though it's book 2 in a series (believe me I'm ordering book one!) it stands alone well. The synopsis is spot on, the premise is sharp and intriguing, and P. A DePaul delivers with a tight, fast paced, entertaining story. The characters, both primary and secondary are quite vibrant and they are fully faceted and layered, which makes the action sequences just that little bit more intense. I appreciated the balance between action and romance, and that the transitions seemed smooth and logical. There are intense themes, including PTSD and they are handled with respect and dignity. Well Done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully-written, action-packed thriller. 6 June 2015
By Avid Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Cappy and Michelle's story is heartbreaking. Both of their lives have been tragic. Hers from being captured, tortured, and suffering from PTSD for years. His from losing his team, losing his family, his life and Michelle for the past six years. These two fell instantly in love and recaptured that being reunited to prove her innocence of murder and find the real killer. This is a suspenseful, fast-paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's a happily-ever-after ending for two strong, deserving people.
