Countermeasure: Bytes of Life and Bits of Life are tie-in/sideline series to the Countermeasure Series novels. These short stories and novellas are an illicit behind-the-scenes view into the lives of the two lead characters of the Countermeasures series when they are not hard at work solving computer crimes and looking for clues into the Brennan's disappearance. They are voyeuristic glimpses into their married life, proof that the heat of romance begins with I do.

These short stories and novellas can be read as standalone Romantica, they are character-driven, NOT plot-driven.

Please be advised that ALL shorts in these series contain MATURE content. They are NOT recommended for a younger audience. Some of the events taking place in the short stories are referenced in the novels and vice-versa. Although the three series are interconnected, the short stories are not a necessary read for the unraveling of the mystery in the series, yet each book pushes boundaries in the development of their intimate relationship and that reflects in their behavior/actions in the novels.

***Uncharted can be read at any point in the series. Although Uncharted's story takes place, chronologically, before Countermeasure, we recommend that you read it after Countermeasure. Uncharted is only available via the Countermeasure Bonus Edition or subscription to our newsletter.
