#NewRelease- Secrets, Lies & Alibis by @jacqbiggar #ReadingCommunity #RomSuspense


Happy book birthday to me! Secrets, Lies & Alibis- Book 8 in the Wounded Hearts series is live!

It’s been an emotional week for our family. My grandson had a rare night out with friends last weekend and forgot to change his pod (he’s a Type 1 Diabetic). By the time he arrived home the next morning, he was pale, shaking, and violently sick with ketones in his bloodstream. Thankfully, he recovered, hopefully the wiser for his actions.

Wednesday, DH was sprayed head-to-toe with hot hydraulic oil, barely escaping serious burns over most of his body.

The same day, my daughter suffered a seizure (first one ever) at her job and was transported by ambulance to hospital where they ran numerous tests, and found she was dangerously low in potassium and electrolytes. They gave her IV’s and sent her home late that night with anti-seizure medications. She has to go back for an MRI, so any prayers you can spare would be deeply appreciated.

Today is DH’s birthday- let’s hope nothing else happens!

And now, onto my other big news…

I’ve been wanting to add to the Wounded Hearts series for sometime, and decided 2021 was the year to “get ‘er done“, as Larry the Cable Guy would say 🙂

Earlier this year I released The SEAL’s Temptation

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Jacquie Biggar, comes a gripping romantic suspense, part of a military SEAL series tied together by an interlocking cast of characters you won’t soon forget.

An elusive danger brings two obstinate lovers together for the sake of their unborn child

SAC Agent Amanda Rhinehold is driven to succeed, so it’s a bitter pill to swallow when she is forced to accept a demotion in order to distance herself from an error in judgment– one that leaves her pregnant.

Adam O’Connor uses his playboy image to keep anyone from getting too close. History has shown the people he cares about tends to get hurt, he’s like the proverbial bad luck charm. When an affair with his supervisor goes sideways and she leaves town, he figures it’s for the best, though his heart isn’t so sure.

When trouble comes calling, these two will have to sort their differences in order to protect their baby- and try not to fall in love in the process.

★★★★★ “This author is an auto-buy for me. Each of her novels including this one is a perfect mix of angst, suspense, humor, and steaminess.”

And next, (hopefully by late fall) I’ll have book 9. More about that later.

Excerpt from Secrets. Lies & Alibis

“Hold your positions. I repeat, hold your positions. Fox is entering the henhouse. Eyes on the prize, Agents.”

Adam rolled his eyes at the voice of the acting commander in his earpiece. The guy was stiff as a board, and about as by the rulebook as could be—it made his jaw ache. At least with Amanda… it didn’t matter, she’d left him. He had to make do, like it or not.

A nondescript man walked in, brown hair, dark eyes, medium build, mid-thirties. He carefully surveyed the other clientele—a couple of cowboys playing pool and an old drunk mumbling into his glass—then took a stool at the bar, near the American and his group.

“This is our guy. Ready to do your part, Morgan?”

Brianne tensed, staring at the cell phone resting on the table.

“Just a quick bump and grab, you’ve got this. I’ll be right here in case anything goes wrong—which it won’t,” Adam assured her.

She nodded and rose, phone in hand, and took on a wobbly half-drunk persona. “What’s a girl gotta do to get a drink around here?” she whined, whipping around on unsteady legs to make her way to the bar. “Never mind, I’ll get my own.”

Adam, and every other male in the building, watched her wiggle her butt up to the counter, right next to Mr. Plain and Ordinary, who looked distinctly uncomfortable and leaned away from the tottering female.

“I need a drink,” she demanded, slapping her hand on the counter. “Service suuuucks here,” she confided, half-laying against the stranger.

“Ease up,” Adam warned through the earpiece as Mr. P and O pushed her upright, his face grim. “You’re coming on too heavy.”

The bartender came from the back room, a towel in hand, and started toward Brianne. “Get out of there,” Adam ordered. “Now, Agent Morgan.”

Brianne straightened and giggled. “Never mind, my favorite song just started.” With that, she wandered away from the bar, arms akimbo and hips swaying hypnotically to Deana Carter’s “Strawberry Wine”.

The American frowned and shook his head, and Adam could only agree. Brianne Morgan was a daredevil. His heart was drumming like crazy, but, surprisingly, the adrenaline was like welcoming an old friend.

He grinned and rose to meet her, taking her in his arms and swinging her toward the door. “C’mon, sweetheart, time for bed.”

The two Hispanics whistled and stomped their feet, signaling their approval while the bartender eyed them suspiciously. As long as he kept quiet about the lack of alcohol in their drinks…

“Whew, that was fun,” Brianne chirped as soon as they were in the clear. “I thought he was going to blow my cover.”

“You took unnecessary risks,” Adam growled. “What would you have done if he called you out on your little act?”

She shrugged, unrepentant. “I’d have thought of something. Anyway, I got it.” She opened her hand to reveal the cell phone in her palm, and grinned. “Someone’s going to be angry when he realizes his phone has been switched.”

Adam accepted the gadget and started toward the car. “Now to get our resident tech guru to find out the information we need before he locks it down.”

Getting into the driver’s side, he gave in to curiosity and lifted the phone for inspection. This was it, he could feel it. “Wish you were here, Amanda,” he whispered.

    Your family has had a run of bad luck. (Or good, considering the ultimate outcomes could have been far worse.) Glad it all worked out. Here’s hoping those incidents are all behind you and your new release is the beginning of all wonderful things. Best wishes!

    Jacquie, that’a a positively scary week you’ve had. I am so glad all worked out in the end for your family member.s As for your daughter, I will add her to my prayer list. Your mother is already on it (I hope she is doing well these days). I hope the medication helps and the MRI is able to determine more.

    Congrats on your latest release. You are a writing fiend, my friend!

    1. Thanks for your prayers, Mae, appreciated. Mom is still healing. She goes to a clinic three times a week for dressing changes, but I think- hope- we’re on the downside of the hill now.
      Instead of an MRI, they’re now sending my girl to a neurosurgeon on the 21st ( her birthday ). I’m not sure what that means- nothing good.

    Congratulations on yet another amazing book!! There is just no stopping you is there? Happy Birthday to your DH. And I am sending positive thoughts for your daughter and grandson. Perhaps she needs to eat more bananas. It happened to my mom and no kidding, that was what she was told by her doctor. Never happened again. A worry for you as you are on opposite sides of Canada. Sending hugs. xo

    1. Thank you, Darlene. My writing has come to a near standstill this year. Too much going on, with Covid and everything else.
      Yes, I recommended she eat more dried apricots and bananas. Hopefully, the neurosurgeon appointment is more of a safeguard than anything more serious. Time will tell.
      Thanks for your kind words ((hugs))
