The Gravity of Mammon by Dan O'Shea

Sabrina's Month of Love 

So, I'm giving you the best of both worlds today.  Not only am I telling you about a book with an incredibly HOT character, I'm also giving you a recording of the voice that turns me into mush... and makes my toes curl with delight.  I'm choosing an audio for today's spotlight... an excerpt from The Gravity of Mammon written by Dan O'Shea.

The Gravity of Mammon tells the story about the deliciously sweet Nick Hardin, the ex-sniper now employed as an escort to safely provide transportation for journalists in and out of conflict zones. To get to the part I'm trying to highlight, I'll give you a quick look at the book...

In the story you'll read about Nick being hired to protect a celebrity; the celebrity getting a broken nose and wanting revenge; Nick stealing diamonds connected to Al-Queda, Nick fighting off an assassin hired to get the diamonds back; the celebrity with the broken nose using his conections with a Chicago drug lord to get back at Nick; the secret past that connects Nick and the Chicago drug lord... and Nick running into a girl he apparently saved in his earlier days.

Hmmmm.... about this girl he saved. 

Well, she isn't exactly a girl anymore, and... they have a connection that leads to one of the most beautiful love scenes I've ever encountered. *sigh* I mean, really... it's not every day you can find hot, passionate love-making with a side of male vulnerability, and ... plans for murder.  You can listen to this scene here ----->>>>  An excerpt from The Gravity of Mammon.

For a full review I encourage you to check  out the review of The Gravity of Mammon on Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White. And when you're done with that you can read The Gravity of Mammon for free on Dan's website.
