Dirty Deeds : Blog Hop
Hey everyone!!! Thanks to Live Your Life, Buy the Book for having me back here for my Dirty Deeds blog tour 🙂 Dirty Deeds is the first in this spin-off series of Hell or High Water. Dirty Deeds focuses on Cillian and Mal, two characters who’ve been in both Hell or High Water books 1 & 2 (Catch a Ghost and Long Time Gone.) Dirty Deeds # 1 captures a very specific moment in time for the Cillian (the spook) and Mal (the former SEAL in exile).
Can Mal whisper?
It’s not as much a whisper as it is pushing sound through his teeth…it’s explained a bit in Dirty Deeds. But for the most part, he’s non-vocal. And it’s actually easier for him to use signs, especially because in his line of work, silence is pretty much the way to go.
Okay, the sofa. It was the big object in the room, so to speak, that was used to showcase Tom’s jealousy and Prophet’s lack of readiness to take that final step into a monogamist relationship. Does Cillian even want that thing back at this point? I imagine it needs to be steam cleaned.
Ha! Cillian doesn’t want it back. And Mal’s take on the couch (in Dirty Deeds)? He mentions something about throwing it out the window. On fire.
Where does Dirty Deeds fit chronologically with Catch a Ghost and Long Time Gone?
Dirty Deeds happens about four plus months past Long Time Gone. It actually runs on the same timeline as a part of Daylight Again. So Dirty Deeds Book 1 takes place over 4 days—it’s a short for reasons that are apparent in the book. There was only so far I could take these guys and not run over Daylight Again’s timeline. But if I didn’t give Mal and Cillian the start of their story, especially when they’re spending time together with Prophet and Tommy in Daylight Again and If I Ever, this part of the story wouldn’t have gotten told in the right way. So I’m really glad my editor suggested it. And so, Dirty Lies and Dirty Love come out post Hell or High Water, and then Mal and Cillian will have their own plot, apart from the John Morse storyline.
John is a significant character in the Hell or High Water books, as a former SEAL team member with Mal, does he have a starring role in this series as well? Is he really dead? (Okay, I don’t expect you to answer that second question.)
You’ll find out a lot more about that in Dirty Deeds. 😀
What do you have in store for readers in 2014?
A lot 😀 2 Hell or High Water books (plus a short), a new series with Riptide that starts on June 30th (hasn’t been announced yet) plus a few secret projects I’ve got going. And a Samhain, Men of Honor spinoff, No Boundaries.
A big thanks to SE Jakes for stopping by! We loved Dirty Deeds, and cannot wait for more Team Mallian!

Title : Dirty Deeds
Series : Dirty Deeds, Book #1
Two seasoned operatives finally meet their match: each other.
Cillian works for the mysterious Special Branch 20: an organization that runs black ops commissioned by the British government. His specialty is deep undercover assignments with virtually no support. He’s been alone for so long that he no longer knows anything else.
Mal’s also used to being alone. Wanted in several states and even more countries, he’s not allowed in the vicinity of any of his former Navy SEAL teammates. And his current assignment is to track Cillian in order to discover the spook’s endgame. Except he’s no longer sure which one of them is getting played.
Cillian isn’t about to let the mission that’s consumed him for the past several years crumble because an outsider is poking around where he doesn’t belong. But Mal forces his way through Cillian’s defenses—and into his heart—exposing a devastating betrayal that could destroy them both.
