Overview

Book #1 of the Bestselling Consequences series:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a suspenseful thriller about secrets and deception, passion and love, choices and consequences.

Every action has consequences.

Waking in an unfamiliar bedroom in a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols is terrified to discover that a chance encounter led her into the cruel hands of her abductor, Anthony Rawlings. Claire has no understanding of why she's there, but it's been made abundantly clear-she is now his acquisition and every action has consequences.

Learn the rules to survive.

Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive her new reality-every aspect of her livelihood depends upon the tall, dark-eyed tycoon who is a true master of deception. Driven by unknown demons, he has no tolerance for imperfection, in any aspect of his life, including his recent acquisition. Anthony may appear to the world as a handsome, benevolent businessman, but in reality Claire knows firsthand that he's a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules: do as you're told, public failure is not an option, and appearances are of the utmost importance.

Captivate the captor.

To fit together the pieces of the puzzle, Claire must follow his rules. Will her plan work, or will Anthony become enthralled by Claire's beauty, resilience, and determination, changing the game forever? If that happens, will either of them survive the consequences?

Nobody ever did or ever will escape the consequences of his choices.-Alfred A. Montapert

Meet the Author

Aleatha Romig is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, who has been voted #1 "New Author to Read" on Goodreads, July 2012 - Present!

Aleatha has lived most of her life in Indiana, growing-up in Mishawaka, graduating from Indiana University, and currently living south of Indianapolis. Together with her high-school sweetheart and husband of twenty seven years, they've raised three children. Before she became a full-time author, she worked days as a dental hygienist and spent her nights writing. Now, when she's not imagining mind-blowing twists and turns, she likes to spend her time with her family and friends. Her pastimes include exercising, reading, and creating heroes/ anti-heroes who haunt your dreams!

Aleatha enjoys traveling, especially when there is a beach involved. In 2011 she had the opportunity to visit Sydney, Australia to visit her daughter studying at the University of Wollongong. Her dream is to travel to places in her novels and around the world.

CONSEQUENCES, her first novel, was released August 2011 by Xlibris Publishing. Then in October of 2012, Ms. Romig re-released CONSEQUENCES as an indie author. TRUTH, the sequel, was released October 30, 2012, and CONVICTED, the third in the series, was released October 8, 2013. Unexpectedly, the fourth book of the Consequences series came to life with REVEALED: The Missing Years. It is the fourth full-length novel in the series. It explores the gap in time in Convicted that was previously only mentioned as well as a complete character glossary and timeline. REVEALED was released in June of 2014.

Aleatha also wrote reading companions for the Consequences SeriAAes. BEHIND HIS EYES CONSEQUENCES (Book 1.5) and BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH (Book 2.5) are currently available for those time and scenes when the readers asked, "What was he thinking?" These companions also contain never before behind the scenes scenes.

    This series is a MUST MUST MUST read! It is such a mind eff that

    This series is a MUST MUST MUST read! It is such a mind eff that I can;t even fathom how she came up with all the twists and turns that she did. Claire wakes up in a strange place and realizes that she has been kidnapped by a man that she met a week ago. She is completely shut off from the outside world. Claire soon learns that her actions have consequences....some good, some bad and some are down right brutal. While Claire struggles to survive in her new life, she begins  to fall in love with the man who kidnapped her, Tony. Tony's motto is "appearances are everything" so when the other shoe drops it will leave you absolutely breathless. My head was spinning and I couldn't sleep for H.O.U.R.S.! The twists and turns are AMAZING. There was never a dull moment and it's far from predictable.

    this has to be the most disturbing book i have ever read; i read

    this has to be the most disturbing book i have ever read; i read quickly but i had to constantly put this book down; it took me three months to get this book and its effects out of my system; and i read often, every single week; but the scenes and the mind games were weird for me to digest; i can't even call this book good or bad; but i know you need to be strong in mind before picking this book up; i started the sequel, because i wanted to see the story through, but i don't think i could handle it

    This is a book you can not put down. Disturbing yet thrilling.

    This is a book you can not put down. Disturbing yet thrilling. My one complaint is the use of character names. The main character Claire, her aide Catherine, house helpers Cindy & Carlos. Party goers Courtney & Chance. Followed by Clawson and Charles.
    There are more letters in the alphabet to use.

    Twist and turns riddle

    Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    Twist and turns riddle the road and CONSEQUENCES takes you on a rocky ride. ~ Under the Covers

    I should warn that you this book isn’t a romance. I think it would better fit under “thriller”, the psychological kind because this one sure made me rethink a lot of things.

    Claire Nikols wakes in an unfamiliar bedroom of a lavish home. Though the place is immaculate, she is still a prisoner, no matter what fancy things surround her. Claire now belongs to Anthony Rawlings, a manipulative, cunning man whom will do anything he wants with Claire no care for the consequences of his actions. Not many would dare to stand in Anthony’s way.

    In a binding agreement between Claire and Anthony, she has signed her soul away, agreeing to be available to him anytime he pleases if he covers the cost of her debts.

    CONSEQUENCES is quite dark, sometimes pushing me past the limits I thought I wouldn’t let myself go to. However, Romig’s writing really reels you in until you are helpless but to continue reading. What Claire experiences at the hands of Anthony is debasing sometimes and you wonder how you’re capable of continue on reading, but I think the reason I did was because you become so attached to the story and the characters that you must know what happens.

    Anthony is….interesting to say the least. I absolutely despised him and the twists and turns revealed along the way really cement this in stone. I’ll be quite impressed if the author is able to make me change my mind.

    Twist and turns riddle the road and CONSEQUENCES takes you on a rocky ride. I found that some scenes dragged on for too long while others could be cut out completely, making for a tighter story but Romig has a very compelling voice and I very much enjoyed this book. I just need some time to wrap my head around things still.
