Publisher's Summary

After the murder of a teenage girl, a mysterious man in a black leather jacket was seen lurking near the crime scene. Investigative reporter Tessa Novak has him in her sights as the culprit.

That man was Julian Darcangelo, an undercover FBI agent working with the Denver police. He's closing in on the trail of a human trafficker and killer. Tessa's accusations could blow his cover, and he wants her off the investigation.

But just as Tessa has made Julian a target of interest, she is now a target of the killer. And as they are forced to trust each other, their physical attraction escalates as intensely as the threat from a ruthless murderer who wants to see both of them dead...

©2006 Pamela Clare (P)2012 Tantor

What the Critics Say

"Calling on her own experiences, reporter turned author Clare adds a realistic edge to her suspenseful writing. . . . Clare definitely seems to have found her niche." (Romantic Times)

    "The best series in this genre that I have read yet"

    This review is really for the whole series, as I loved all of them. Pamela Clare did a wonderful job developing the characters...both the men and the women. I think what I enjoyed most is that the the series moved through the different members of the I-team while keeping the characters I already fell in love with part of the story. And Kaleo Griffith is now, by far, my favorite narrator for this genre. I love how he used such distinct, but subtle, voices for everyone, so I always knew who was talking. I was so disappointed when I discovered I had listened to them all. Since then, I have been searching, with no success, to find another series with such great writing, strong & lovable characters, intriguing plots, and steamy sex!

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Julian is smokin' HOT!"

    STORY - Hard Evidence is a great romance thriller. While the love scenes are graphic and hot, this book is definitely NOT a dirty book with a weak plot just tossed in. Julian and Tessa have a sizzling romance amidst a dangerous and very exciting investigation into human trafficking in Denver. Julian is a cocky, dedicated FBI agent who absolutely could not be any sexier. Tessa is a newspaper reporter who vacillates between being really smart and TSTL.

    In the very beginning I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the story. There are a few corny scenes that made me roll my eyes, but somehow they would still make me smile. Very quickly the story becomes interesting and suspenseful, and the chemistry between Julian and Tessa becomes....WOO-HOO! The ending is good, and the story stands alone.

    NARRATION - The reader does a pretty good job, but Tess's southern accent leaves a lot to be desired. Julian's voice is wonderfully soft, masculine and sexy. It is great (and refreshing) to have a male read a romance novel. After all, romance novels are for us girls, right?

    OVERALL - Highly recommended. This is not exactly classic literature, but it is definitely romantic, hot and suspenseful. My definition of a great escape!

    "Julian Oh Julian where for art thou is my Julian"

    Tall dark and sexy Julian Darcangelo is all man and the bad boy of every woman’s dreams. How can Tessa resist falling for him in this second installment of the I team. I enjoy the balance of a good story, fun romance and the woman of the I team. This story doesn’t disappoint. The interaction between Tessa and Julian keeps you engaged from beginning to end. And I am glad the author stayed with the same narrator who has grown on me more with this book. Worth a credit, if you like a good story with romance and danger thrown in to keep you guessing.

    Story
    "lead female"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the female investigative reporter (Tessa) was smarter than a chunk of wood.


    If you’ve listened to books by Pamela Clare before, how does this one compare?

    The first one was great. This one I fast forwarded so much because I couldn't believe what a blundering idiot Tessa was. I would put her common sense somewhere around 12-13, but I don't want to insult that age group.


    Have you listened to any of Kaleo Griffith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Fine


    What character would you cut from Hard Evidence?

    I'd replace the female lead with someone who has a brain that matches her supposed credentials.


    Any additional comments?

    Could have been a really good book.

    "A Man That Knows How to Work It!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    good story with a bit of mystery. Very investigative type of story line. Dialogue better than average.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great reader, Kaleo Griffith....whoa what a great sexy reading voice. He is making this series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when the 3 men paint the Trim, and know how to work it. Coke commercial move over.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    our hero, is as sexy as they get. Ms Clare knows how to write 'em.


    Any additional comments?

    You do not have to read in order as they stand alone. The friends names link the stories, but the characters really do not. Read the summery and reviews to pick. I am getting all of them as the reader is so good.

    "Another Kick A*& Book!"
    Where does Hard Evidence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    By far one of the best.


    Which character – as performed by Kaleo Griffith – was your favorite?

    All of them. They all have their own personality and voice. I would listen to more books done by this narrator.

    "A little disappointing....."

    Coming off the first book which I loved loved loved; I wasn't as fond of this one. The first half of the book was a little drawn out as the story was set up and because of the profound story-line, it was hard for me to engage in the romance.

    The narrator was wonderful as he was in the first; definitely one of the most "sexy" male voices!!!!

    "MALE NARRATORS FOR ROMANCE BOOKS"
    What about Kaleo Griffith’s performance did you like?

    What a voice...he is one of the best I have heard since Phil Gigante. When will they learn that a masculine part requires a male narrator!!!! It makes all the difference in the world!


    Any additional comments?

    Please Please Please realize that masculine parts in books require male narrators!!! It makes it or breaks it. Nothing worse than hearing a Scottish Highlander or an undercover cop that sounds like Pee Wee Herman!!!

    "Another great installment in the I-Team Series,but"
    What did you like best about Hard Evidence? What did you like least?

    The story of murder and the investigation that follows.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Julian! He was so dark, deep and sexy!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I love Kaleo Griffith's performance in the previous I-Team book & most in this book. However, his portrayal of Tessa's character (with a southern accent) sounded like a female Forrest Gump.


    Did Hard Evidence inspire you to do anything?

    Like what exactly? I am looking forward to listening to the rest in this series.


    Any additional comments?

    Note: Sexual situations and a bit of strong language.
