The I-Team is back! Catch up with your favorite I-Team characters in Deadly Intent (I-Team #8). This is photojournalist Joaquin Ramirez’s story. Forever changed by events in Breaking Point and Dead By Midnight, Joaquin had a harder edge now. He’s going to need it, as former US Army Captain Mia Starr has trouble on her heels. 

He has some surprises for you and might well be the most sensual I-Team hero.


Here’s the blurb:


Secrets buried in the sand… 

Former US Army Captain Mia Starr has built a new life for herself in Denver, far away from camel spiders and sand—and the terrible secrets of her first deployment to Iraq. She isn’t looking for a relationship, especially not with an intrusive photojournalist. Joaquin Ramirez might be sexy, but in her experience, photojournalists only want to make a buck off other people’s suffering. Still, the universe must have a sick sense of humor because it keeps throwing her together with Joaquin, making the desire she feels for him harder and harder to resist.


An undeniable attraction… 

As a Pulitzer Prize-winning news photographer, Joaquin has everything a single straight guy could want—except the right woman. When he meets Mia while shooting a crime scene, he immediately sees beyond her cold exterior to the vulnerable woman beneath. Though the police consider her a suspect, he’s sure she’s innocent. Someone is killing soldiers—and trying to pin the blame on her. Unable to resist the pull between them, Joaquin stands by her only to find himself snared in the killer’s net as well. 


A twisted soul hungry for revenge… 

Mia can’t help it when the heat between her and Joaquin melts away her preconceptions. As their passion explodes, danger draws ever closer. When it becomes clear that Mia is the killer’s true target, she must trust Joaquin with a secret that could ruin her … or risk losing the love of a lifetime.

Close to Heaven, the fifth full-length book in my Colorado High Country series, is out! A Christmas novel, it tells the story of two of readers’ favorite Scarlet Springs characters—Rain Minear and the reclusive Joe Moffat. These two have been a part of every book in the series so far as the manager and owner of Knockers, the only brewpub in Scarlet. Now their story comes front and center. 

I love Christmas, and I love reading Christmas novels. Escape with me to Scarlet Springs this holiday season. I hope you enjoy it! 

Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:


A woman at a crossroads… 

Rain Minear has fantasized about finding herself in Joe Moffat’s arms for years. It’s just her luck that the night it finally happens, he’s carrying her into the emergency room. It’s Joe who steps up to help her when a tragedy brings her life crashing down. He gives her a place to stay, helps her get back on her feet, and even tries to save her Christmas, though he’s never cared for the holiday. But he’s far too ethical to sleep with a member of his staff, holding her at arms length despite the long-simmering attraction between them.


A man haunted by the past… 

Joe Moffat moved to Scarlet Springs to repay a debt. He’s struggled for years to keep his hands off Rain. She’s the general manager of his brewpub, and he is not that kind of boss. But, oh, she turns him on. More than that, she has the biggest heart of any woman he’s ever known. He’d do anything to see her smile again, even put up a Christmas tree and listen to carols.


A season that changes two lives forever… 

When a Rocky Mountain blizzard leaves them snowbound, they can no longer ignore their feelings for one another. As their passion turns to something deeper, it becomes clear to them both that this will be the most important Christmas of their lives.

Return to Scarlet Springs with Tempting Fate

Book 4 in the Colorado High Country series is out! The story picks up about one month after the epilogue for Falling Hard. It tells the story of Chaska Belcourt, a member of the Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team, who lives in Scarlet Springs with his sister Winona and their rescue wolf, Shota.


When he’s not climbing, Chaska is working on propulsion systems for an aerospace engineering firm that gets contracts from NASA. He leads a busy life, and he isn’t looking for romance—not really. If Creator wants him to have a woman in his life, then Creator can feel free to put that woman in his path.


Well, he asked for it.


Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:


A woman with no roots…


Naomi fled the cult-like nightmare of her childhood and learned to rely on one person—herself. Her resourcefulness keeps her alive during a catastrophe in the mountains, but it’s no help at all when it comes to Chaska Belcourt, the sexy EMT who saves her life. Raised to feel shame about her body and sex, she is putty in Chaska’s hands as he strips away her armor, exposing the vulnerable woman beneath, awakening desires in her that she’d been taught to ignore.


A kiss that changes everything…


Chaska Belcourt grew up on the reservation, the son of a hereditary Sun Dance chief. He left all of that behind for a new life in Colorado as an engineer with an aerospace firm and a member of the elite Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. He doesn’t share his sister’s belief that he was led by fate to find Naomi. But from the first moment their lips touch, he can’t get enough of her.


A love that transforms…


As the passion between them turns into something more, Chaska is forced to admit that his sister is right. There’s no other way to explain the depth of his feelings for Naomi—or the fact that he and his people might hold the key to unraveling the mysteries of her past. But she will have to learn to trust again before the two of them can find the answers she needs—and claim this once-in-a-lifetime love.

Come back to Scarlet Springs with Falling Hard


Falling Hard, Book 3 in my Colorado High Country series is out! It tells the story of war widow Ellie Meeks and Jesse Moretti, a former Army Ranger who’s a ski patroller and part of the Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. The story starts a couple of months after Slow Burn ends, in the middle of winter.


Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:  

A war widow alone…


Ellie Meeks promised her pilot husband that if he was killed in combat, she would live her life to the fullest. Three years later, she is still alone, raising the twins he never met. She has no interest in dating or meeting men—until one snowy night when a stranger helps her get her sick kids safely home. That stranger turns out to be a former Army Ranger and a member of the elite Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. He’s also tall, rugged… and irresistibly sexy.


All it takes is one kiss…


Jesse Moretti came to Colorado to get Iraq out of his head, using the adrenaline of extreme sports and high-risk mountain rescues to keep his mind off the past. But getting involved with Ellie might be the riskiest thing he’s ever done. It’s not just their explosive chemistry. There’s something about Ellie that gets inside him, opening him to feelings he’s tried hard to ignore.


When passion ignites…


Ellie feels alive in Jesse’s arms and happier than she ever thought she’d feel again. But their relationship comes at a price for him, and soon Ellie sees that she must help Jesse fight the demons of his past to protect the love of a lifetime—and save the heart of a hero.


Everyone’s favorite characters are back in this story, and we get a long cameo from the Jack and Nate West and their clan from the Cimarron Ranch (I-Team After Hours).


This series is straight contemporary romance, so it’s lighter and doesn’t have the suspense threads that my I-Team books have. But the emotions in this story — a story of love overcoming tragedy — are very strong. I hope you’ll come to love Ellie and Jesse as much as I do.


The ebook is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Smashwords, and Kobo. It will be out soon in paperback.

Visit the I-Team Shop at Café Press


The I-Team series might be over-for now-but that doesn't mean you can't carry it with you. The Pamela Clare I-Team Shop is now open on Café Press, selling a range of T-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, water bottles, bags, and other items with the official I-Team logos. 

The logos were designed for me as a gift by Lynsey Marion Bryan, a dear friend of mine from my newspaper days, who died suddenly and unexpectedly in March 2015. Using her logos is a way of keeping her with me. 

I plan to expand the shop's variety by adding "Team" art with your favorite hero's name on it-"Team Marc," "Team Julian," "Team Zach," "Marcangelo Lives," and etc. 

Café Press does ship overseas, so the items are available internationally. 

Thanks for 10 years of love for the I-Team series!

The I-Team series and MacKinnon's Rangers series come to the UK

So many of you have written to me over the past couple of years, asking when the I-Team series or the MacKinnon's Rangers series would be available in the United Kingdom and in Commonwealth countries. In March and April, Eternal Romance Books published the I-Team series in both print and ebook, giving the books a fresh new look with bright beautiful covers. 

On May 14, 2015, the MacKinnon's Rangers series (Surrender, Untamed, Defiant), together with Ride the Fire(Kenleigh-Blakewell Family Saga, Book 3) will be released in print and ebook there as well, bringing UK readers up to date on all my books. The covers feature art by my good friend, author and photographer Jenn LeBlanc. The editors and designers chose her work, having no idea that she and I are close friends — a very happy coincidence. 

I hope my UK readers will enjoy both series. The I-Team series continues with Seduction Game, Holly's story, while MacKinnon's Rangers fans still have Lord William Wentworth's story, as well as Captain Joseph's story ahead of them. 

Thank you for your support!

On April 21, 2014, I was diagnosed with Stage 1C breast cancer (e/p+, her2-) via a routine mammogram. A short time later, blood work led to the discovery of a benign parathyroid adenoma. I underwent a mastectomy, thyroid surgery, and a surgery to install a port for chemotherapy in a period of two months, and then underwent 12 weeks of chemo and 25 treatments of radiation. 

It was a dark, terrifying, horrible and very pain-filled year. There's no way to sugar coat that. Cancer was not a blessing. It held no silver lining. It sucked. 

The support I received from my family, friends, fellow authors, and readers made such a difference in my life with the Good Food Fund and donations to help with medical expenses. I came through the experience feeling so much gratitude for those of you who took time to reach out and show me kindness. 

I am healing, getting stronger every day, and will start the reconstruction process in September. I may also have to undergo another thyroid procedure. But compared to what I've been through, that's nothing. 

Thank you to all of you who supported me through letters, cards, posts on Facebook, tweets, prayers and good wishes. Kindness really does matter. 

(And please remember to get every lump checked by a doctor and to get your mammograms!) 

Perfume designed exclusively for Unlawful Contact!

I am so excited to announce that internationally known perfumer Dawn Spencer Hurwitz has created two new scents in honor of Unlawful Contact. Dawn designs scents for Hollywood stars, New York jet-setters and Parisian socialites. Using natural oils and essences, not chemicals, she makes her perfumes by hand, one drop at a time, just as perfumers did three hundred years ago. 

I met Dawn this past summer and was so impressed by her work that I asked if she'd be interested in turning the characters in Unlawful Contact into scents. She read the manuscript, took lots of notes about Marc's and Sophie's personalities, and then began to turn those into scents.

I went in to sniff the final results last week, and I love them! I've been wearing "Sophie" ever since and dabbing "Marc" on all the men in my life."Marc" captures the scents of Colorado's mountains together with Marc Hunter's deep masculine sexuality, while "Sophie" captures Sophie's sexy, sleek sophistication with a touch of innocent "fairy sprite" sensuality. The two work well together, both featuring certain musk notes that make them a "couple."

Working with an artist like Dawn was so much fun. She and I are talking about doing it again, perhaps going backward with the I-Team series. "Julian" anyone?

The scents are now done and can be ordered from her Web site at The perfumes are part of the Essence Studio collection. She has a variety of sizes available, including samples for under $4.
