Havelock By Jane D. Everly is Books Jane D Everly was born in Nottingham, England where she developed a depthless love of fiction While aspiring to be a romance novelist, she discovered an edge to her work that was quite unexpected It appeared that her love of action and adventure stories would forever prevent her from writing the stories of sappy romantic entanglements she believed she had always been meant to write Instead, heavily influenced by the rise of geek culture, she began to write stories filled with kick ass heroines and villains with delusions of attaining world domination.Jane relocated to Vancouver, BC, Canada in 2013 to pursue her writing career She now lives in a beautiful downtown Vancouver apartment with her cat, Mr Bojangles, and an entire world of espionage and intrigue poised at her fingertips..

The best Kindle Havelock An author I have become friendly with emailed me and asked if I wanted to read book one in this serial. I adore that author. *Shocking I know* and thought what the heck, they know I don't discriminate whether they are my friend or not. If I hate the book I'll tell it loud.Usually female sorta-spy stories are hit or miss with me. I bet that author is frigging laughing their ass off right now.This first part of the story was just pure fun. You have a thirty something female named Eliana who at the beginning has gotten caught watching some bad guys as they do their thing. She doesn't like that much.I use his own momentum and drive the knife up into his throat. Strained gurgling, and he topples over, blood spraying from the wound, painting me crimson.It's fine, red looks good on me.The story goes on and several people all over the world go a tad crazy and go on a killing spree. Taking out some very prominent people. There is a reason behind it and I don't want to spoil but I liked how it's going so far. Eliana teams up with one of the guys from the British Secret Intelligence Service and the hunt begins. I LOVE Eliana's character. Some advice that she got from her mom.Own your body, Eliana. We are given few natural gifts in this world, and none more valuable than your own skin. Wear it proudly, take care of it, use it as it needs to be used. It can be a hindrance if you allow insecurities to inhibit your mind. But if used correctly, it can be as powerful a weapon as any that exist. And it's all yours. I will admit I'm not crazy about serial releases but when it's done. I'll definitely read the rest of it. So clear my schedule!
