A Year in Review #1

Good Morning Everyone,

The time has arrived! Today the blog turns 1!!! Thank you all for your support. Now let the celebration begin!

For the First Year in Review, I am honored to take a look back at the Countermeasure Series by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. This series is unique and intoxicating. It contains so much action/suspense and romance that readers will be instantly hooked and crave the next book!

Here’s a look back at the reviews for the Countermeasure Series:

1. Uncharted:
Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have written a very intriguing start to their series, with this short story. Readers will be captivated and anxious to figure out what the motive is that caused such a drastic decision from the main characters.

2. Countermeasure:
Countermeasure is jam-packed with intrigue and suspense, mixed with steamy chemistry. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have given geeks everywhere an exciting romance to read. Cassandra is a strong, determined woman, while Trevor is an extremely hot computer genius. The technical jargon that is mixed in throughout the book is evenly balanced between the witty banter of the two main characters.

3. Bytes of Life Anthology:
This anthology contains three short stories that take place in between the first full length novel, Countermeasure and the second, To Russia with Love. Fans of Countermeasure will want to read this anthology. These stories are not full of suspense, but they are full of romantic trysts.

4. To Russia with Love:
This time the action is amplified and the story is balanced with steamy love scenes from the secondary characters. Readers’ hearts will race as they turn each page. Fans of this series will be left desperately waiting for the next novel. Romantic suspense readers of a mature age need to place this series on their ‘Must-Read’ lists.

5. Blindsided:
Written with the same excellent style, that fans have thoroughly enjoyed, Blindsided takes a slight detour away from the hectic romantic suspense filled plot that consumes Trevor’s and Cassie’s lives. Nathan is a character that fans will either love-to-hate or hate-to-love and this is the story where his inner turmoil begins to shine through.

Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey are helping us celebrate this major milestone. They are giving away 1 swag pack filled with bookmarks and a Countermeasure series bracelet!!! To enter to win, just leave a comment below between now and Friday, May 31, 2013 at 11:59pm EDT. The winner will be selected and announced Saturday June 1, 2013!

Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey are also giving away personalized ecopies of Uncharted and Countermeasure for the Big Giveaway! (Entry form link is under the Big Giveaway page at the top of the blog.)

A big thank you to Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey for donating some amazing prizes for this celebratory event!

I hope you all enjoyed this first installment of A Year in Review!

Enjoy,
~Ariesgrl
