An Act of Salvation Front Cover (1)

Synopsis

Sometimes two broken pieces make a whole.

He’s the one she’s always loved.

She’s the one he could never have.

A forbidden night of passion resulted in years of heartbreak when he walked away. Now she’s in danger and needs his help. 

Trust doesn’t come easy for FBI Agent Nick Stone, especially when it comes to love, but he’ll risk it all for Katelyn Slade. 

Including his heart. 

Bullets fly, betrayals are exposed, and the flames from their past ignite.

His protection might be what saves her but in the end she will be his salvation.

This is Book two in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It’s Nick and Katelyn’s story and is told in dual POV, has an HEA with no cliffhanger and it can be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend that you read the Men Of Honor series prior, as characters play recurring roles in both series.

Excerpt

He begins moving inside of me with slow, exquisite strokes, his eyes never leaving mine. He looks at me in a way I’ve longed to have someone look at me my whole life. Like I matter, like I’m important…like I am more. When it’s time for him to go back this is what I’ll remember. This is what I’ll keep close to me on the nights I ache for him, to remember that someone looked at me like this once. Even if I don’t get it for a lifetime, it’s better than not getting it at all.

Just like the man himself.

Reaching up, I cup his strong, stubbly jaw. He encircles my wrist and kisses the inside of it, right over my tattoo.

No words needed.

As more tears begin to fall he leans down and catches them with his lips. “Feel me, Kate. Feel nothing but me.”

“I do. You’re all I feel.”

“Just us,” he whispers.

“Just us.”

My Review

This was probably the best romantic suspense book I have read in a while.

The chemistry between Nick and Katelyn was crazy intense, and it seemed even after they hadn’t seen each other in years, it hadn’t died. I loved Katelyn’s character, who knew from the start that something was definitely not right with the accusations flying around about her brother. Nick stepped up to the plate, having not seen Katelyn in years, when he needed her most. I loved how close all the secondary characters were, and how they weren’t easily swayed to let someone in to the mix (even when he was a good guy)

This story drew me in from the start, and I couldn’t put it down. With it’s steamy sex scenes, and never knowing who was behind the chaos, there was never a dull moment.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a phenomenal read

Are you ready to get Dirty Sexy with a Saint?

Clay Kincaid knows he’s more a sinner than a saint. Especially when it comes to women. With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn’t do committed relationships. But he does like sex–the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson. Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does. Let the sinning begin . . .

More Dirty Sexy Series coming in 2016!

Teaser

She had a small amount of cash on her, and there was no telling how much longer she’d have access to her credit cards before they were put on hold. She called a cab company, then got out of the car, tossed the keys and cell phone beneath the seat—since her father could track that, as well—and manually locked the door.

Within minutes, a taxi pulled up to where Samantha was waiting. The driver was a friendly young girl in her early twenties, and she was counting on the other woman to find her just the right place to celebrate her first night of freedom. A place where no one knew her or would judge her or would expect her to be the good girl she’d always been.

“My name is Angie.” The girl glanced over her shoulder to the backseat with a friendly smile. “Where can I take you tonight?”

“To your favorite bar in the Chicago area.”

Angie’s brows rose in surprise as she took in Samantha’s designer purse and high-end attire. “Are you sure about that? My favorite bar is a far cry from The Aviary,” she said of the upscale lounge where the wealthy went to mingle and be seen. “The place I hang out at is a bit on the…unrefined side,” she said with a laugh.

Samantha grinned. “That’s exactly what I’m counting on.”

My Review 

5 ★★★★★

What do you get when 2 awesome authors collaborate on a book series? A sexy read that you won’t be able to put down.

I have been looking forward to this series, and Carly and Erika did not disappoint in book 1.

Clay is a bit of a protector, thrown in to this position at a young age and never really let go of it. He’s is crazy sexy, and it’s no surprise Samantha can’t resist him when she ends up in his bar after discovering what was about to become of her life.

This story drew me in, and I couldn’t put it down. Clay is a bit over the top in all of his gestures (although trying to help make Samantha’s dreams come true and how he does it?? SWOON!) Samantha is an awesome heroine, who has discovered she doesn’t want or need the things in life her family chose for her. I loved how everyone was willing to make sacrifices for the ones they love, and that even some of the best “bred” guys aren’t the right ones.

I laughed, cried, and fell in love with this new series, and I know you will too!

I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a sexy romance

My Review

★★★★★

Wow. What a perfect conclusion to the Shadows series (or at least to Theron and Eve’s story.)

This story picked up where Shadows ended, and kept me drawn in the entire time. My heart seemed to break a little more the further I got in to the story. Full of twists, betrayals, and love, this story has EVERYTHING a reader could dream of. It was awesome to finally read a book where I feel justice was served in favor of what the reader wanted.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a phenomenal read, and I am keeping my fingers crossed we get more stories of the secondary characters I’ve fallen for (especially Eve’s brother Robert)

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Amber-Lacie/e/B0145FLFRC




The fans of Amber Lacie sat down with Amber, Theron, and Eve for an interview. One brave fan even went to Thomas’ office to ask him a question.
(do NOT continue to read if you havent read Shadows. If you haven’t what are youo waiting for click here to buy it now.)


Fans: What are Eve and Theron’s favorite colors?
Eve: “I don’t know. I really like dark purples, but the lavender in our bedroom is really pretty. So I guess any shade of purple would work.”
Theron: “Orange.”


Fans: When did Theron stop being self-conscious of his eye colors and stop wearing sunglasses?
Theron: “After my mom died and my dad sent me off to school, I gave up on everything. Nothing anyone said made any difference to me anymore. I didn’t even want to exist. After a while the kids at my school figured out the comments didn’t bother me. In college I actually got complimented a lot. So unless it was sunny out I had no reason to hide.”

Fans: How did Theron come to love Eve so deeply at a young age?
Eve: “Oh, I want to know too.”
Theron: “She never questioned who I was. She saved me. She’s my beautiful.”

Fans: Will Theron’s reasons for leaving Eve be explained in Light?
Amber Lacie: You’ll have to read Light to find out. 😉

Fans: When did Theron find Eve again? How long was he watching her?
Theron: “I never actually lost her. I may have tried to push her away, but she was always with me. Persistent in making me focus on what I was supposed to do with my life. It’s odd how roads twist and turn. She’s the only person that I kept going back to. I knew I needed her. Now, you want to know how long I was watching her? I plead the fifth. She’s right next to me and I don’t feel like suffering through an arm punch right now.”
Eve: “I love you. We’ll talk about this later”

Fans: What was the inspiration for Eve and Theron’s story?
Amber Lacie: “I love to people watch. It’s a bad habit of mine. I tend to create mini stories or wonder where people have come from, where they are going, etc. I was sitting on the beach and I noticed some kids playing in the water. At the same time a couple walked hand in hand right past them who looked ridiculously similar to the kids playing. So…Theron and Eve’s story grew from there.”

Fans: What did Eve think/how did she feel about Theron when they interacted as kids? Did she know his name then? Theron is not a common name…one you might remember. 
Eve: “I didn’t know his name because he wouldn’t tell me. I knew my heart jumped when I was near him and felt compelled to protect him whenever Kayla would give him a hard time. It’s too hard to talk about without bringing up Matt. It’s been years, but it still stings. I was watching the snow fall outside the library windows the other day and my heart stopped still in my chest. It caught me off guard for a second. Winters were tarnished and so were my memories of the beach for a while. I’m okay though. I like to listen to Theron’s version of when we were little. It sounds more like a fairytale. I’m not even sure if I answered your question.”


Fans: Theron…seriously, dude…a freaking note? That’s how you decide to leave the love of your life? I’m so mad at you!
Eve: Feel free to explain this one Theron, the floor is yours.
Theron: Fuck. I knew this was coming. Look, I wasn’t thinking right. I thought I was protecting her. I knew if I told her in person or even talked to her on the phone I would back out. I wouldn’t be able to walk away from her, but it was obvious to me I was hurting her. I couldn’t stand by loving her with everything I have to offer and still hurt her in the process. I didn’t think she loved me like I needed her to. She needed to heal from everything with Matt.
Eve: Bullshit excuse if you ask me. It was fucking note! Who the hell does that? (Taking a deep breath) Sorry. I’m sorry. I forgive you. We’ve moved past it. I’m letting it go.
Theron: I’ve apologized a million times over. Beautiful, I love you. After we are done with this interview why don’t we go home. I’ll run you a bath.
Eve: Okay.


Fans: Amber, does your husband read your books?
Amber: No. He’s not a big reader. I had to really push him to read Hunger Games. I think that was the first series of books he’s ever finished. He says he will one day, but I’m not holding my breath. 


Fans: For Theron, Eve, and Amber what is your all-time favorite song?
Amber: “That’s easy. Three am by Matchbox 20.”
Eve: “Hmmm. I’m a huge Adele fan. So maybe Rolling in the deep?”
Theron: “My favorite band is Simply Three. The one song I tend to play over and over is Take me to Church. They cover Hozier’s song. I love the melody to it, it clears my head. Eve is my church. (Laughing) God, Evan would roll his eyes at me if he heard me say that.”


Fans: Theron and Eve, pick a song that reminds you of the each other and explain why.
Eve: “Easy. Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. I’ve loved Theron since I can remember. Just the touch of his hand sends my body and mind spinning. I’ll love him until the die I die and for a million years after that.”
Theron: “All of Me by John Legend. She owns me. This crazy beautiful girl let me keep her. Everything I am, everything I want to be, everything I live for her is because of her. She’s my person.”


At this point one brave fan left to go to ask this question is for Thomas. Why all the hatred towards Theron? You don’t honestly believe he killed his mother, do you?
Thomas: “I have enough shit to deal with and you interrupt me for this? He was nothing, but a fucking leach sucking the life out of every person he touched. He ruined my life. He took everything from me. If I could do it all again, he wouldn’t be born. He’s an ungrateful little shit. Everything I’ve done for him and he sends you in here to question me? Get the fuck out of my office. Get. The. Fuck. Out. Now!”
(Please note the brave fan left immediately and no further contact with Thomas was made) 

Music that helped the story come to life:

Ed Sheeran’s album Multiply
 

3 am by Matchbox 20
Simply Three
