JACK OF HEARTS (Aces & Eights Book 1) by Sandra Owens
Publication Date: February 14, 2017
Genre: Romantic Suspense
As a deep undercover agent for the FBI, Alex Gentry rides his Harley along the edge of two worlds, that of the criminals who would just as soon kill him as not, and the one on the side of the law. To infiltrate Miami’s criminal underworld, Alex operates a biker bar, Aces & Eights, with his two FBI brothers. The last thing Alex needs or wants is to fall in love, but resisting Madison Parker, his target’s cousin, is proving to be as hard as hiding his real identity from her.
Madison Parker is afraid of her drug-dealing cousin, so when his friend, Alex Gentry, appoints himself her protector, she willingly accepts Alex’s help. Her attraction to the secretive and insanely sexy man is worrisome. Who is he really? He exudes danger, yet she senses he is hiding the real Alex Gentry. Is she risking her heart on the wrong man?
I love this new series! It’s filled with ongoing suspense and tension then sexy hot romance, and relatable people that you want to spend time with. The writing kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. Madison was easy to like and her reaction to things was believable, even when she made me groan. Alex? I’d sure like to meet an Alex! He is sweet and smoldering all at the same time, which makes for fun reading. I look forward to reading about his brothers and how things pan out for them, it should be fun.

Sandra lives in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Most days, you can find her with her fingers on a keyboard, her mind in the world of her imagination. It’s a land where romance and happy endings exist, a land where anything is possible.
A few highlights of Sandra’s life she fondly recalls are jumping out of a plane, flying upside down in a stunt plane, and riding her Harley in the mountains of Southern California and along the coast of Maine.
Although those events in her life were great fun, nothing compares to the joy and satisfaction she gets from writing her stories.
