Nicole Chambers’ track record with men is bad. Very bad. She’s sworn off dating for the foreseeable future. Recovering from an assault by the last man she’d only casually dated, Nicole is attacked again in her rural home. If not for the hot guy who showed up about her rental cottage, she would have been dead for sure.

Her self-imposed sabbatical is soon tested when he moves into her backyard.

Kyle’s mother was kidnapped and murdered when he was just a kid. Filled with rage and a determination to hunt down the man who became known as the Clove Hitch Killer, he goes into law enforcement. When his efforts lead him to Nicole Chambers, he falls for her completely.

Now he’s torn between keeping her safe, or using her as bait to capture a killer.



Glancing at the video feed, he saw Nicole step into the backyard with a plate of meat. The outdoor light was on, and he could clearly make out her features. She nervously bit her bottom lip. Sheryl followed her out and laughingly took the platter from her hand, then gave her a small shove toward the cottage. Nicole gave her friend a dirty look, but took a tentative step toward them.

“Oh, shit,” he said, glancing around at all the surveillance equipment crowding the living room of the cottage. He couldn’t let Nicole come in here.

Rob got to his feet, openly laughing now. “Let me guess, they’re coming over?”

“Nicole is.”

Kyle sprinted to his refrigerator, grabbed the chicken breast he had thawing for dinner, and entwined two unopened bottles of beer between his fingers. “Let’s go,” he snapped, racing toward the door.

Still grinning, Rob opened it for him and followed him outside as Nicole neared the front porch. Kyle screeched to a halt, and tried to appear natural, and not like the jackass he was. If she came inside, this night would end very badly.

“Hi, Nicole.” He was pleased at how normal he sounded. “We were heading over to see if we could share your grill.”

“That’s great.” She waved toward her house. “We bought way too much food, and need someone to help us eat it.” She held out her hand toward Rob. “Hi, I’m Nicole.”

Rob took her hand and gave it a firm shake. “It’s nice to meet you, Nicole.” He glanced past her to Sheryl, who was watching them expectantly.

Nicole laughed, glancing down at his plate. “Bring your chicken and we’ll toss it on the grill.” Her gaze slid back to Rob, her eyes held a teasing glint. “I’ll introduce you to Sheryl.”

She headed back toward her place. For a moment, Kyle’s attention was riveted by her nicely swaying hips, until Rob gave him a little shove and got his ass moving.


5 stars

Was gifted this book in exchange of my honest review.

Kyle Wade lost his mother at a young age and years later his Father spiraled and died, raised by friends of the Family he and Rob grew up together, both joined the police dept as Kyle wanted to help others and to catch his Mother's killer.
As he spends time tracking the killer known as C.H.K. This leads him to Nicole Chambers, who he starts to care for and tries not to use her as bait, Nicole also develops feelings for Kyle as the both fight and seek a way for her not to fall into the serial murder hands.
Does she escape, well wont be telling you that nor will I give you a hint, but it was a intense book, well written that kept on edge the entire time.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

My writing career began in 2011, when my wonderful husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas and changed my world. I started reading romance novels, and fell in love with them. I decided to try writing one myself. I disappeared into my room over a long Wisconsin winter and wrote my debut novel, Protecting Rose. I sent my baby out to three publishing houses and was delighted to receive two offers. I quickly accepted with Soul Mate Publishing. Protecting Rose went on to win the 2012 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence in the romantic suspense category. Well, I was hooked.

Today, I’m a multi-published, award-winning author, and live in Wisconsin with my husband Patrick. I love to read, play piano, and spend time with family and friends. I enjoy novels with fast-paced action and steamy romance, protective alpha men and strong heroines. I belong to several writing groups, including Romance Writers of America (RWA) and Sisters In Crime.
In 2013, I came aboard Soul Mate Publishing as an acquiring editor and have over fifty edited novels under my belt. I can also be found under the pen name of CiCi Cordelia, with my writing partner and BFF, Char Chaffin.

    1. Thanks, Victoria. So happy you popped in. :)

  3. How exciting it must have been when Protecting Rose was first published!

    1. Yes, it was a wild ride. It took me a year to calm

  4. Hi Melissa/Cheryl. The rafflecopter's FB links to Protecting Rose & three BFFs are broken.

    1. Hi, Kate. Thank you for pointing that out. Here's the link to Protecting Rose... The link to The Three BFFs has changed, since Callie has moved on to Historical writings, (where she's rocking it) and Char and I are currently writing together under the Pen-Name of CiCi Cordelia. Although we'll always remain close to Callie, Char and I have a new page at This was a very recent change, and I missed updating the link for this blog tour. I hope you stop in and check us out. :)

    2. Hi Cheryl, I found yourself & the lovely Char but the link you gave above for Rose Protector is for the Amazon page, not the FB one.

    3. Hi Cheryl, I found yourself & the lovely Char but the link you gave above for Rose Protector is for the Amazon page, not the FB one.

  5. Setting bait to trap a killer alwaysvmakes for a hair-raising experience. One of my favorite stories along those lines is Friedrich Durrenmatt's The Pledge, which has been filmed three times - memorably, by Sean Penn with Jack Nicholson in the lead.

    1. Hi, Richard. I'm not familiar with the story, but I love Penn and Thanks for dropping in...

  6. congrats on the tour, the book looks great, and thanks for the chance to win :)

  7. Enjoyed the excerpt and am adding to my wish list

  8. Thanks for the great giveaway!
    The book sounds amazing!
