In The Name of Love Character Quiz with Jennifer Lowery

No one does an Alpha hero contemporary suspense like Jennifer Lowery! Her heroes are intense and steely, her heroines tough yet vulnerable. Her scenes crackle with terse action and swoon-worthy passion. She had me at Hard Core and her latest release, The Maze reminded me why. Attie and Noah make a wonderful pair, battling over-whelming odds and their desire for one another. And Jen let me borrow them for a quick Q&A.

Hi Nancy, and all you fabulous readers out there *waves* Thank you so much for having me today! My romantic suspense, The Maze, released last month so I’m very excited to be here! Thank you so much for sharing it with me!!

In honor of my release I am giving away an e-book copy of any one of my books (go to my WEBSITE to choose) to one lucky commenter so please leave me a comment with your EMAIL so I can contact you if you win!!

Meet Attie and Noah . . .

What word best describes true love?

Attie: Trust.

Noah: Loyalty.

What song title best describes your relationship track record: “Nothing but a Good Time,” “Turn Me Loose,” “Shot Through the Heart (You Give Love a Bad Name)”, “Money Talks/Material Girl”, “Looking for Love in All The Wrong Places?”

Attie: “Looking for Love in All The Wrong Places.” As an ATCOM operative fraternizing is against the rules.

What do you find the most appealing about a committed relationship?

Attie: Being able to trust someone always has my back *sends Noah a look he returns with intensity*

Noah: I always have your back.

Attie: *laces her fingers through Noah’s*

What was your first opinion of each other?

Noah: Attie was the most stubborn, determined operative trainee I’d ever met. I knew she’d hold her own being the first female operative.

Attie: Noah was my instructor at the academy. I’d never met anyone as intense as him. His nickname is 
The Rock and he earned it. There was a time I hated his ability to remain calm in any situation, though. *smiles at Noah who sends her a look*

What are you most looking forward to as a couple?

Attie: Having someone to share my secrets with.

Noah: *remains silent, but his hand tightens around Attie’s*

A mission she can’t forget…

The first female operative for the counterterrorism unit known as ATCOM, Atalanta Devayne is haunted by a former mission gone wrong. That mission led to her imprisonment, torture, and ultimate retirement, along with her loss of faith in the man she’d trusted with her life.

Brings his vengeance…

Former Navy SEAL, Noah Kincaid, bears the responsibility of Attie’s imprisonment and blames himself for not protecting her from drug lord Carlos Santiago. This time he won’t fail her.

In a deadly game of survival.

Santiago has resurfaced and set up an elaborate plan to exact his revenge on Attie by taking her brother hostage. The only way to save him is by revisiting the darkness of her past and relying on a man she can’t trust. In a battle of life or death, Noah and Attie are put to the test. They must face challenges to overcome the past and accept their feelings for each other before the danger that tore them apart separates them forever. 

Content Warning: Sexual content


In six months she hadn’t had a night when she didn’t have a nightmare that had her waking up in a cold sweat. She slept with a light on. The dark terrified her now. Evil things lingered in the dark. She didn’t want Noah to see her like that. She didn’t let anyone see her like that. Not even Uncle Jed and Brendan. Noah knew her as an agent and she wanted to keep it that way. All business. Professional. Just like before. 

She knew, even though she tried to deny it, that it wasn’t going to work. Not after what they’d shared last night. Nothing was going to be the same again. Too much lay between them. The past, the present. The kiss.

Attie sighed and turned off the water. When had this gotten so complicated? It had never been simple between her and Noah, but this…this tied her in knots. Throw in Carlos and fear for her brother’s safety and she was borderline certifiable. 

Stepping out of the shower she wrapped in a towel and walked into the bedroom to find Noah stretched out on the bed, fully clothed, his hands stacked behind his head. He had changed into a pair of tailored slacks and designer shirt, open at the neck. 

Her steps faltered. God help her. This wasn’t the man she knew. This was insight into the man, not the agent. Images of him in their bedroom, lounging in bed in civilian clothes and waiting for her, wanting her, filled her head. It made her want things she couldn’t have. Any possibility of a future together had been destroyed, and they weren’t getting it back. 

He glanced over when she walked in. His eyes did a slow perusal from head to foot before meeting hers. The heat she saw simmering there made her breath hitch. Then she remembered they were putting on a show for Carlos’s sake and it cooled her hormones instantly. How were they going to pull this off? Somehow, they had to convince Carlos that they were spending the night together. With Noah stretched out on the bed like that, limiting it to pretend would be difficult. 

Stopping that train of thought before it began, Attie walked to the closet and opened the doors. She pulled a light blue dress shirt off a hanger and returned to the bathroom, ignoring Noah’s quirked brow and half smile. The man had a dangerous smile.
