Overview

Protection. Adventure. Love.
It’s all found within The Arms of the Law…


Detective Alicia Knowles once believed good existed in everyone, but a traumatic experience changed her entire world. Now dangerous and cynical, she moves through the darkness of her once-sunny world, unsure how to handle her pent-up feelings of fear and anger.

Even her new boss, Cole Douglass, spins her out of control. One night, years ago, he made her feel things she'd never felt with any other man. Business comes first, however. A child is missing and a murderer is on the run.

But as Alicia quickly discovers, old flames never die out. Temperatures and passion flare. On the trail of a killer, she is forced to deal with her past as she tries to make decisions about her future.

Meet the Author

Kacey is a multi-published author who was encouraged to write by her beloved husband and quickly found herself writing fast and furiously. Not that she’ll ever tell him those three dreadful words that he longs to hear…”You were right.”

Kacey is a true romantic at heart. Nothing is better for her than two fated mates coming together to find their happily-ever-after. With a love of contemporary settings, modern day romances and the happily ever after, as well as the excitement of suspense, Kacey creates stories in genres she’s familiar with and that she loves most. She also loves vampires who nibble the necks of the heroines, ghosts who can't leave a loved one, shape-shifters who are sexier than hell and the thought of her very own werewolf or were-cat to tame makes her tremble! Locked in her office at her computer, she lets her lusty and exciting characters lead her through their trials and tribulations, love and adventure as they come to life in her heart and on paper.

    Kacey pens "Awakenings" a fast paced action romance in

    Kacey pens "Awakenings" a fast paced action romance in a plot that flows smoothly. Be cautioned that there is references to abuse but nothing really graphic.I found her characters to be well developed and relatable to real life with their fears and concerns. A farily quick read that is recommended for those over the age of 18.




    This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

    A quickly paced, fast moving book, the emotionally charged story

    A quickly paced, fast moving book, the emotionally charged story-line starts with a beaten woman and climaxes with another incident with the perpetrator, with lots of action in between. Readers should be warned that although the references that involve abuse and beating are not specific or greatly detailed, the plot essentially rests on one woman’s inability to come to terms with her own loss of faith in humanity after her own traumatic event.

    The writing is smooth and tightly interweaves the action with the emotionally charged reactions of the characters, from anger to abject terror, guilt, frustration and feelings of inadequacy. This is not a ‘typical’ cop story – the characters are both well-defined and completely relatable as human beings with fears, concerns and emotions that are affected by what they see on the job. As the second in this In The Arms of The Law series, this book stands alone without great difficulty, as the author has provided background throughout the story, and this helps to fill in the gaps.

    The main characters, Alicia and Cole, are engaged in a dance that is rife with insecurities, guilt, longing and the effects of Alicia’s past; although they do manage to overcome these difficulties when they let their all too apparent sexual chemistry take the lead. And there is sex: hot and steamy – this is not a book that is geared to the under 18 crowd. The scenes are graphically written, with an emotional undertone that balances the very steamy action. My only real complaint with the storyline is the all-too tired line used by the hero when the discussion of condoms makes an appearance early in the story. Although, I will give the author a nod for making it a discussion at all: the realistic portrayal of the storyline and characters requires that real world sexual concerns enter the picture; in this day and age that does mean protection for both parties.

    Although this was a book that brought forward a series of issues that are all too common in the world we live in, the author has done a wonderful job of displaying an understanding of the emotional impact and damage that happens to all involved: not just victims. I certainly would not hesitate to read other books by this author.

    I received an eBook copy from author for review for Full Moon Bites tours. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
