OMG Dead By Midnight was pulse pounding, and heart wrenching! I thought going into this book it would be a little action, the good guys would save the day, and there would be Christmas cuteness. Yea that so didn't happen. Instead I got a epic, nail biting story with all my favorite characters, as they fought for their lives and the lives of those they loved. There was quite a few moments in this book where I found myself holding my breath, freaking out over what was happening.

Wow! What a great "novella". I use quotes because this was only a novella in the technical sense. It's very long and very complete.

What can I say? What. Can. I. Say? I was on the edge of my seat for much of this book. The suspense was overwhelming. I cried at parts, the emotion was spot on. And I laughed too. What a complete reading experience.

In 2014, Pamela Clare fought breast cancer and wasn't able to write at all. That's a tough thing when writing is your sole income. But in 2015 she's come

Review now posted...

Pamela Clare writes Romantic Suspense the way I wish all authors could and would, which is why she continues to be my favorite in the genre, hands down. But on that note, another RS author I adore is Kaylea Cross, so when I learned that her FBI Hostage Rescue Team badass hotties would be teaming up with the I-Team's equally badass hotties, I found myself deep in the throes of a bookgasm!

Marc and Sophie Hunter, Gabe and Kat Rossiter, Holly Andris and the rest of the
During the first half of this book, I had thought of many things I wanted to say, but by the time I finished it, I was literally lost for words. I felt so overwhelmed with everything that happened in the story. This book gave me much more than what I expected. Yes, life is too short! You should spend as much time as possible with your loved ones, be there for them, take care of them, and make sure they know how much you love them. You should open your heart and experience everything life can ...more

Dead By Midnight: An I-Team Christmas (I-Team #7.5) by Pamela Clare was the perfect rap to this series! It had all of our favorite characters from the previous books and even had some character crossover from Kaylea Cross’ FBI HRT series. Longer than a novella, but shorter than a novel this is not a standalone.

Two Christmas parties have members and friends of the I-Team at parties in an historic Downtown Denver hotel when it is taken over by Columbian terrorists. From this point on, the plot

Blog Review:

5 I-Team Loving Stars!!

What a fantastic holiday treat Pamela Clare has given us!!! Lots of heat between the sheets (among other locations), action, nail biting intensity, solidarity, gut wrenching at times, emotional, and full of friends, family, loyalty, and love. Everything we come to expect from an I-Team book....or novella!!! A must read for fan's of Pamela Clare's I-Team Series!!

Reece and Kara Sheridan are attending a holiday party at the Palace Hotel for a foreign ambassador while the I-Team journalists at the Denver Independent are having their party at the same hotel. When Holly Andris inadvertently sees a hotel server packing an AK-47, she gets into action.

What a way to end a series! I opted to wait until the audiobook was released and that was the best decision. Kaleo Griffith was just perfect in his performance of a really great story. All of the main characters

Recommends it for: Fans of the series don't miss it!
This is how you finish a series! Take all your characters from a series, put most of them in peril in one location, and let them use all their smarts/courage to figure their way out of one giant, stress-filled, 5-hour nail-biting scenario. Wow! PC pulled out all the stops in this one...AND she managed to give most of our couples some pretty steamy sex scenes to boot! Now how did she accomplish that? I feel like this was a love letter to all her readers who absolutely adore this I-Team series. ...more
Pamela Clare redefines my view of unputdownable!

The I-Team crew have found themselves doing some pre-Christmas celebrating at the same hotel. Kat and Gave Rossiter checked in before the newspaper’s party to get some alone time. Sophie has tempted Marc into later finding an isolated place of their own, Kara and Reece are attending the annual British Consulate General’s party. They’re all there for a few hours of entertaining but a malicious group of radicals have different plans for the hotel
5 stars – Romantic Suspense

Awesome holiday, Die Hard -esque suspense novella featuring some of my all-time favorite romance heroes and couples! Loved it!

My reaction to this book in one image:


Full review coming next week.
Number 7.5 in the I-Team series by Pamela Clare. The I-Team are at the annual Christmas Party which is in the same hotel that is hosting the British Consulate General's Christmas Party. It's all fun and games until they are taken hostage by the baddies.

I rarely give 5 stars to novellas because I feel they don't develop the story to my satisfaction. Since I have been with this series for years, and I am very familiar with the main characters, I was pleased with how the story took off on page one

Edge of your seat action from beginning to end with all of our favorite characters either being in peril or being part of the team(s) to rescue them. Not going to write a long review – this was a great book that was even better because I love all of these characters and could read them forever.
I was just about to scream LAST BOOK and write a soppy, farewell review about finally finishing this series. And then I just checked and it’s actually not the last book LOL.
Anyway, this book still managed to finish in a sentimental note as we saw all the characters from the previous books. There were honestly some crazy-fuckin’ moments. Some scary moments that gave me the chills. Some moments that got me emotional. It was great to see all the characters come together again, and literally

HoHoHo – the I-Team gang is back together for a Christmas celebration! But hold on tight because Pamela Clare is taking hostages and holding them spellbound with her holiday novella. And there’s an extra surprise tucked away inside with the cross-over appearance by Kaylea Cross’s Hostage Rescue Team.

Plenty of action always follows the I-Team wherever they go, and there’s no time off during the holiday season either. It’s a wild ride with plenty of powerful action from our favorites when they
I rarely give novellas a 5 on account of them being so short but this one deserves it. I'm so happy to be reunited with all the characters, despite them being under unpleasant circumstances. The story is fast-paced, action-packed, and it has a LOT of nail-biting moments. I cried a lot too at the last 20%? 10%? because INTENSE OKAY I AM TOO FRAGILE FOR THIS TYPE OF TENSION

So grateful to Jae for pushing me to read these books. It's definitely in my ultimate fav romance series list.

OH MY! This was so good, I actually read it twice. All of the I-Team is present. No new love match-ups, but lots of sexy times with all the previous couples. Lots of drama and action as they tackle a bad guy. Alex and Matt have redeemed themselves, and I might actually want them to now get their own HEAs.

I absolutely loved this novella. It didn’t even read like a novella, which just shows how talented Pamela Clare is.

The I-Team is one of my favorite RS series’, and I just loved spending time with all the characters that I adore. And of course the action was as masterfully done as always.

I just love how Pamela Clare writes: the suspense is always edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting captivating; the heroes so very hawt and take charge; the heroines sweet and kick-ass; and the romance so very

It's the holidays and the members of the I-team are celebrating at their annual newspaper Christmas party at a downtown Denver hotel. Across the hall is a reception for the British Ambassador. Guests include the U.S. Secretary of State and the Lt. Governor. Suddenly shots are fired and the partiers are being held by a group of terrorists.

I usually don't like reunion books where past characters from the series make an appearance and show us how happy they are. This one is different. Yes, they're

Loved it. Action packed from pg 1, you get your money's worth with a novella from Clare.
Nov 16, 2015 rated it it was amazing
My favorite genre to read is romantic suspense. I have read each and every I-Team novel and listened to them on audio. They never disappoint.

This story is a rollercoaster ride that starts quickly at what is supposed to be a boring Christmas party at a glorious Denver hotel, and turns into a nightmare. Ms. Clare takes us through every harrowing turn and dip. There is violence, cruelty and even death, but the biggest message in all her novels is loyalty, honor, family and love. Through this

I am impressed at how entertaining this not so fun holiday party of the I-team turned out to be.
It started off fancy, a Christmas party at a hotel and quickly turned into most of the team being held as hostages.

The story was action packed, typical teamwork, loyalty and support. And of course you can't have a Pamela Clare novel without a good number of sex scenes. It was well written and Kaleo Griffith did a great job as the narrator.

I still don't buy Holly as this kick ass operative after 6

Pretty good for an action plot.

This reminded me of the first Bruce Willis Die Hard movie. Terrorists take over a hotel holding guests hostage. A cop who was in the hotel as a party guest sneaks around causing trouble for the terrorists. Others do heroic things as well.

The ending went a little overboard with excessive talk about families, babies, barbecues, and thanking everyone.

Kaleo Griffith was excellent doing general narration and male voices. But he needs to learn how to
Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)

I’m such a sucker for Holiday stories but this one really intrigued me because it involved all of my favorite characters from Pamela Clare’s I-Team series. The gang is all here and it’s a furious ride until the end when some of our beloved characters are trapped and being held hostage by a number of gun-toting, angry men. Pepe, the leader of the hostage situation, wants his cousin out of prison. Until he is flown over and given a few million dollars as well, he still start killing people
My heart raced the whole book!

Fans of the I-Team series will love seeing all their favorite characters. This isn't your average Christmas party. It is the holidays with a splash of life or death action.

Filled with Pamela Clare's trademark sizzle and quick whit this book will make your heart race, make you laugh, make you want some private time with your significant other, and bring a tear to your eye.

Not many books out there that can give you all of that.

I purchased this book for my own library

OMG what a GREAT story. Pamela, you have outdone yourself. I was on the edge of my seat throughout this book and only put it down because my eyes were too bleary to read any more.
This has to be one of my favs and all the past characters were in it. YAY.
All the guys and Holly were great but Marc, you are still The Man.

Loved this gem of a book. Not too often that you like every couple in a series, but I couldn't find one thing not to love about this book and how all the couples interacted with one another. Wonderful read PC! You are rocking the books lately! Holding my lighter up for Joseph and Wentworth's HEA!
4.5 Stars! Excellent story, action packed. Loved it!
