Overview

BEARING ALL (A Christmas Novella)

All he wants for Christmas is her…
Former Russian spy, Sergei Lanksy, code name the Bear, is hibernating on the Edge of Alaska. He lures the woman he loves to the Edge of Reason Lodge, hoping enough time has passed that her heart has softened and her knives have dulled.

All she wants is revenge...
Kate 'No Mercy' Mercer is a CIA Agent sent to assassinate him. Again. This time she intends to succeed without ending up in his bed. She has a dozen reasons to kill him and one of them is personal.

They’ll be completely unwrapped before the holiday is over…

A Peek Inside:
“When you blame me for this, just know I would never have treated you so given the choice.” He reached for her leg, and she kicked at him. “Don’t make me tie your ankles, too, Katja.”
Her heart pounded hard in her chest. She had to have her feet free or there was no chance of her ever getting away. Sergei fished his switchblade out of his pocket, and her muscles tightened.

Hello, she was currently tied to a bed with The Bear standing over her.

He flicked the knife open, climbed onto the bed, and straddled her hips and sliced the sweater from her body.

She lay there on the bed in her black bra. She’d gotten her breath back, but couldn’t draw air to save her life. His fingers grabbed a shoulder strap and sliced through it and the other, then he carefully slid the knife between the valley of her breasts and cut through the middle of her bra, baring her breasts. They received a courtesy glance as though he couldn’t help himself, but it was the bra itself he was focused on. She squirmed underneath him and he squatted farther on his haunches, anchoring her lower body to the mattress.

He turned the modified bra over in his hands, his fingers searching and finding the other knife she’d hidden in place of the underwire. He arched a brow at her. “Ingenious. I don’t believe this is standard issue.”

"What's better than an action-packed spy-double agent-assassin novel with a bearded Russian assassin lumberjack hottie in Alaska and bad-ass double-jointed heroine who knows her way around a knife? Finding out this is a series! A SERIES!
*Penny wipes away a tear of happiness* Grade: A" ~Goodreads Reviewer

"While on assignment in Afghanistan, our heroine, Kate Mercer is a spy who is seduced and bandoned by Sergei Lavinsky, aka the Bear, a hot Russian who makes James Bond look like a choir boy. The attraction that Kate and Sergei feel towards each other is not only sexual, but emotional as well, and very well written. The dialog was witty and sexy, the action moved along nicely and the mystery of Sergei's seemingly cruel and unforgivable behavior is satisfactorily explained.

I enjoyed the story so much, I re-read it immediately, savoring every word again. I look forward to more of Tiffinie Helmer's work." ~Amazon Reviewer

"Tiffinie always portrays her characters with depth - and feeling, I enjoy being able to read a story where I know how the characters are feeling. See the surroundings, and with such vivid details Tiffinie delivers the readers great insight in the story being told. At times it was like watching James bond in his 007 movies!" ~Amazon Reviewer

    What not to love about this story! Hot, dark Russian and a spy

    What not to love about this story! Hot, dark Russian and a spy sent to kill him. The heat from these pages was sizzling. This book had it all revenge, redemption, and some of the hotest sexual tension I have read in a long time. Great! Just great and highly recommended.

    Move over 007 Meet Sergei !!! Great start to a new series ..

    Vat I Vant is a hot Russian to tango with and not on the dance floor ;)

    Sergei and Kate have a past - one that may ruin any future. Kate is sent to kill Sergei - why - you have to read to find out !!!

    Tiffinie Helmer 's Bearing All is a fast paced, action packed romance with some sensual hot smoking combat moves. Sergei is Kate's target and they are certainly a match made in Heaven in more ways than one. Both hands on – agents that many a times are ruffling each other’s feathers either to kill the other or stop it.

    Tiffinie has added in a few twists and turns in this short story. It’s fast paced and I’m sure any reader will find it hard to put it down once started.

    Sergei is one hot Russian, and I can’t get over his patience with Kate at times lol. There are many moments where I actually giggled. Kate was one escapee artist . I could picture her in one scene and wandered to myself how far she would go and how darn clever she was.

    The romance was like a log fire - crackling - hot - smokin and full of heat. ** fans oneself **

    Tiffinie always portrays her characters with depth - and feeling, I enjoy being able to read a story where I know how the characters are feeling. See the surroundings, and with such vivid details Tiffinie delivers the readers great insight in the story being told. At times it was like watching James bond in his 007 movies !


    Bearing all is a short sexy read, filled with an array of goodness that any romance reader who likes a thrill with enjoy.

    I have to say I did Picture Daniel Craig in many a scene. lol - this reminds me of a 007 movie.. Tiffinie certainly did well in actioning all the moves ! ** waggles eyebrows **


    WIld men of Alaska will have your pulse racing and your jaw dropping , this is book four in the series. Grab your copies you wont be dissapointed

    Love, love, LOVED this book! This is a superb novel, and it had me hooked from page one until the end. I love how well I got to know each character immediately and cared about them through the entire book. It's a story of spy intrigue, reminiscent of a great James Bond movie. Very sexy--a fast paced, fun read, set in a wintry wonderland setting.
