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.


  • It’s deep, dark, twisted, and complex

    By Kristen Lewendon
    Who can you trust when the whole world believes you’re a monster? That’s the reality facing Jane now. As she fights nameless, faceless, accusers in an effort to prove her innocence, her life hangs in the balance because proving she didn’t do it might just uncover who really did. I’m used to reading the wacky fun published by this alter-ego’s author self. This is quite different in all of the best ways. It’s deep, dark, twisted, and complex. There’s moments of the author’s signature humor, such as a turbulent encounter in an airplane bathroom, but they serve to highlight how gritty the rest of the story is. I found myself nearly bawling at the unfairness of Jane’s plight. Even Silas’ family situation broke my heart. It has an abrupt cliff-hanger ending that’s left me gnashing my teeth in frustration, anxious to get my hands on the next book. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
