I didn’t do it.

I never betrayed my friend.

Last year, I was kidnapped along with presidential candidate’s daughter Lindsay Bosworth, forced to help her assailants, my mother implicated in one of the biggest political scandals in American history.

I've been cleared of any wrongdoing, but that doesn’t matter. Once you’re tried by the media, you’re guilty as sin. The truth doesn’t get the public’s attention.

But shame? Shame sells.

And everyone assumes you’re tainted.

Now I have my own personal security team, courtesy of the United States government. Not the one you learned about in civics class, though.

I’m being tracked by the deep state. The shadow government. They’ve assigned Silas Gentian to be with me twenty-four seven. He thinks he knows everything about me – all of it bad -- and he does.

On paper.

Like everyone else, he assumes I’m a traitor. A backstabber. A betrayer. Someone who helped a group of violent psychopaths, puppets of powerful men in Washington who made me into a tool.

Yet I see how he looks at me. True desire can’t be faked. 

Or hidden. 

And that goes both ways.

He assumes I’m trying to fool him.

And he might be right.

But not for the reasons he thinks.

A Shameless Little Con is the first book in the Shameless trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

  • Wow what a ride!

    By ledoss
    Wow, what a roller coaster ride this book is! I enjoyed this, the intrigue and depth of the deception is outstanding. Have no choice but to move on to the next book. I enjoyed the Harmless series which this was spun off from, so far this is my favorite. Go for it!

  • Gripping and Thrilling adventure

    By Cali Jewel
    Wow this story just grips you and does not let go... Emotionally thrilling, action packed, heart pounding twists and turns not to mention the exciting cliffhanger. Jane is the most hated woman in America thanks to a all out media smear complain after she and her best friend (Lindsay) where kidnapped and she was accused of helping the kidnappers. She is broke and has had very thing and every one systematically striped from her life and is only living thanks to Lindsay's father providing her with shelter and a bodyguard. Silas Gentian is assigned to watch her 24/7 and keep her alive, he is also an employee of Lindsay's new husband. Very intriguing and complicated web of danger, deceit and betrayal of the deepest kind. Looking forward to the next story in this promising series.
  • Sexy and Compelling Read!

    By jbebout1295
    Man, I love this series! I have missed these characters. You just never know what to expect from this series. Just when I thought things were all wrapped up, bam! Everything goes haywire again… and the mystery deepens. Just how deep does this thing go? I can’t wait to find out! I was hooked on this book from page one and remained riveted to the very last word… and those last words were a doozy! I found this book to be impassioned and intriguing, romantic and heartfelt, provocative and thrilling, and utterly enthralling. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sexy and compelling read. *I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.
  • A Shamelessly Intriguing Read

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    I voluntarily reviewed this Advance Reader Copy. You know that a book is good when you look up, realize that three hours have passed and you have no idea how that happened so quickly! Meli Raines is a skillful story weaver. Jane, from A Harmless Little Game, has been through the ringer since last we saw her. She’s in “protective” custody and her handler is Silas, also from AHLG. Her life is no longer her own and she is at the mercy of people whose agenda is not necessarily in her best interests. Knowing who to trust becomes a matter of life and death and the truth is shrouded in danger. All of the usual suspects from the previous series appear and the question that still remains unanswered is just WHO was behind what happened to Lindsay and is still going on. This was a wonderfully suspenseful story that has you desperate for more.
