Release Blitz ~ The CONduct series by Jennifer Lane Exclusive Extra Scene + #Giveaway

Today we are excited to present an exclusive extra scene from Jennifer Lane's The CONduct Series!

This particular scene follows the conclusion of On Best Behavior:

Grant Madsen and Sophie Taylor take their nephew Ben Barberi on a college visit.

Sophie: I guess Notre Dame’s not bad, Grant. I mean, it’s no Northwestern…

Grant: Not bad? How can you so easily dismiss the beauty of the University of Notre Dame? The Basilica? The Golden Dome? (He points up as they walk across the quad.) They’re stunning!

Ben: Relax, Uncle Grant. You can rag on Northwestern when we visit Sophie’s alma mater next.

Sophie: You better not! We have some beautiful buildings, too.

Grant: But no Touchdown Jesus.

Ben: Or First Down Moses.

Sophie: (Rolls eyes) I can’t believe how football and religion go hand in hand here. Blasphemy.

Grant: We Catholics know how to poke fun at ourselves. Take this statue, here. (Points straight ahead) This is Jesus, of course, with the famous Bible verse about ‘come to me all who are weary’. Now, look up to the top of the dome. See the Virgin Mary up there? And look back at the Jesus statue. See how his arms are outstretched as he looks up at his mother?

Ben: Yeah. What’s the deal?

Grant: We refer to this statue as ‘Jump mama, I’ll catch you.’

Sophie: (Laughs) Okay, I gotta admit I like that one. (Eyes Grant) Almost as much as I love you in that sexy uniform.

Grant: C’mon, you’ve seen me wear my khakis for months now.

Sophie: It never gets old, McSailor. I bet you were adorable as an undergrad, with your cute Navy uniform...

Ben: You guys said you wouldn’t do that! Gross.

Sophie: Oh, Ben. When you get your ROTC scholarship, you’ll be in uniform, too. The girls will be all over you.

Grant: Ooh, don’t let your girlfriend Lindsay hear that.

Ben: Yeah, she’d kill me. Are we gonna visit the ROTC building next?

Grant: First I want to stop at the grotto.

Ben: What’s that?

Grant: It’s a rocky cave where you can light a candle and say a prayer. A real spiritual place I used to visit when I was in school here.

Sophie: (Scoops Grant’s hand in hers) I bet you lit many candles for your mom.

Grant: (Looks down). You know me well. But today…today I thought we could light a candle for your dad, Ben. (Ben is quiet.) He’d be real proud you’re off to college soon.

Sophie: To Logan. (Squeezes Ben’s shoulder)

Ben: Okay, I guess. (They head to the grotto.)

Sophie: And after the grotto and ROTC, let’s return to the hotel. To our rooms. Our separate rooms.

Grant: Bom-chicka-bom.

Ben: Gross!

How fun was that scene? Grant and Sophie's story touched my heart while reading the entire series! Check out my reviews HERE.

The CONduct Series
Can Two Ex-Cons Find Love? Will the Mafia Let Them Live Long Enough to Find Out?
Romantic Suspense with a Psychological Twist: Now Available in a Boxed Set!

With Good Behavior:
In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed
everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost.
Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer's door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both.

Bad Behavior:
Grant Madsen’s got issues. He’s still battling his Mafia family and doing everything possible to keep his loved ones safe. With the cruising season coming to an end, he has to find another job soon or he’ll rejoin his father in prison. And he’s trying to convince his rebellious teenage nephew to stay away from their criminal relatives (you can imagine how that’s going). But worst of all, Grant’s parole officer has mandated that he attend therapy.

The only saving grace is that they’re couples sessions with his girlfriend, Sophie Taylor, a fellow parolee who’s struggling with a few issues of her own. Sophie desperately hopes her past with Grant’s brother won’t destroy her future with him.

There’s a sleazy professor at work who revels in

sexually harassing women in the psychology department. And her father still hates Grant.
Their psychologist has his work cut out for him.
When Grant’s ruthless father hints at a plot to get out of prison, Grant must use everything he’s learned in therapy and beyond to try to stop him. It’s a race against time ­­ and a race to rescue Sophie from the Mafia’s clutches once again. But this time McSailor and Bonnie refuse to play victims. This time the cuffs are coming off.

On Best Behavior:
Planning a wedding is never easy—especially when the Russian Mafia wants you dead.
On Best Behavior—the third and final book in The Conduct Series—finds our favorite couple moving forward, despite the odds. Following a pardon by the Governor of Illinois, ex­cons Sophie Taylor and Grant Madsen are finally free to pursue their love and the life that lies ahead for them. Grant now fights the forces that have hurt his loved ones by working undercover for the FBI, and he has infiltrated the Russian Mafia in Chicago. Sophie dives into swimming with Grant’s nephew, Ben, and into her career as a psychology professor. Thankfully, now it’s Ben’s turn to heal through therapy sessions with Dr. Hunter Hayes.
With so many things going right for Grant and Sophie, it's too bad the Russians aren’t their only threat. When Grant’s father, Enzo Barberi, discovers his own son thwarted his plan to break out of prison, his overdeveloped sense of vengeance flares to life. As Sophie scrambles to save her fiancé, it's impossible to say who will kill Grant first—the Russians or his Italian family. Can love triumph over evil? Are hard work and a pledge to be on best behavior ever enough?
Once again, author Jennifer Lane brings a harrowing tale of romantic suspense with a psychological twist, and it's sure to leave readers breathless.
