Hotel Palma Dourada

Cuiabá, Brazil

Gripping his 9-millimeter Beretta, Nicholas Charboneau peered through the peephole of the penthouse suite, responding to a soft knock. The red and black uniforms of hotel personnel should not have given him any cause for alarm. And yet, the hair at the nape of his neck reacted to a rush of adrenaline. Two men stood by a rolling cart of white linen, covered with food platters and a bottle of Brazilian Merlot with a distinctive label.

Compliments of the house…or a Trojan Horse?  The bottle of wine told the tale.

A lazy smile curved his lips.  At his age, he relied more on wit and cunning, leaving the chest thumping to younger men.  He had no intention of answering the door, making himself vulnerable.

“No way,” he scoffed, muttering under his breath.  “Nice try, but never would’ve happened.”

“Who is at the door?”  The voice of his young bodyguard, Jasmine Lee, drew his attention.  Towel drying her black hair, she stood near the wet bar dressed only in the white robe of the hotel. “Did you order room service, Nicky?”

He raised his hand and shook his head, silently mouthing the word, “No.”

Her body tensed, dark eyes flared in alert.

The sound of shattered glass from across the room broke his concentration.  Jasmine darted from his sight, heading toward the noise.

Praise

“The final book in Dane’s outstanding launch trilogy picks up shortly after No One Left to Tell. Heavy with atmosphere and creeping danger, this page-turning thrill ride is unforgettable! Rarely does an author make such an impact in such a short span of time.”

RT TOP PICK – Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times Book Review

“Parts of the story left me with my mouth hanging open in shock and others were so profound and deep. I was amazed at the way the words flowed together. I got to understand Christian a lot more, and I loved his character, he’s flawed and imperfect and so human, I loved reading his story. The book is full of fabulous suspense and intrigue and makes for a wild ride. I feel like I should say something bad so I don’t sound like a complete fan girl but I can’t help it. Jordan’s writing is amazing, it’s beautiful and authentic and No One Lives Forever is one of her best yet.”

TOP PICK 4.5 HEARTS Wendy, Night Owl Romance Reviews

“The third No One thriller is an exhilarating suspense tale filled with plausible twists. Fans will feel the danger on every page as this strong action-packed tale lives up to its title. Jordan Dane is three for three.”
