Overview

A deadly mercenary wakes up in the home of Marcelle Deschamps, a woman he has never met, but who haunts his dreams. As the weeks go by, and his body heals, he finds himself falling in love with her, but can he overcome the guilt he feels at the life stolen from her? Will the dark side of his psyche, the result of his terrible past, triumph and hurt her? If she finds out his part in the death of her husband, will she chase him away or grant him absolution?

Marcelle Deschamps, the golden girl of world cycling, struggles to cope after the death of her husband, a famous racing driver. Life is a challenge, where even a restful night’s sleep is impossible. She saves Stefan Ziegler’s life when she finds him helpless and wounded, and gives him shelter in her home. Soon she finds out that her patient has the uncanny ability to grant her the peace that has eluded her for two years. Claude, a close friend, warns her that Stefan is a soulless killer, and not the man he pretends to be. Should she believe him, or listen to what her heart tells her? Can she risk trusting the man who holds her heart in his hands?

Excerpt from Crossfire:
Stefan’s lighter skin and pale hair contrasted with her memories of her husband’s dark features against the white hospital sheets. She remembered from the passport photo that in health he was remarkably handsome. Now a day’s dark stubble shadowed lean cheeks and a strong chin, and silky blond hair spilled onto the pale green pillow cover. His mouth looked as if it could smile often, his parted lips revealing regular white teeth. It was a perfect face, she had to admit, sinister in its beauty, like a mask that served to conceal something hideous. A shiver passed through her. Perhaps when he woke and she could see his eyes, she might feel reassured she had made the right decision.

Meet the Author

My name is Niki Savage. I love writing for the escapism it offers, allowing me to inhabit a world of my own choosing. For that reason, I am also an avid reader, immersing myself in the imaginings of other writers. And movies, well, don't get me started. I go into withdrawal if I don't see at least two new movies a week.
I love chocolate, and consume the fruits of the cocoa bean in some form or another every day. Not really into ice cream, though, chocolate or otherwise.
In my spare time, I run a small shelter for feral cats, and find it very rewarding.

Wow, what a lovestory! I loved loved loved this book. I'm buying the second one today. And I agree, what a cliffhanger ending. Also, what a refreshing change to find no errors or formatting problems. Surely a great indie author in the making.

WOW, I can't believe this book was free! Crossfire grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and wouldn't let go until the cliffhanger ending left me with whiplash. Let's face it, don't we all fantasize about finding some gorgeous, slightly dangerous guy who needs us desperately? Bring it on, baby! Yes, I loved the story and the characters, and will be buying the other books in the trilogy. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

I have to agree with the other reader I can not wait to read part 2 of this story and see what happens and find out the whole story. Definitely left as a cliffhanger but really good book.

I really enjoyed reading this book and couldn't put it down. When I realized that there was a lot more to the story and not enough pages left that could finish it, I was bummed. I didn't waste any time in purchasing the second one.

Both the hero and heroine in this book are complex, flawed and highly dysfunctional people. At certain points in the book I didn't even like them. The author, however, is such an excellent story teller that she sucks you right in. The characters are well developed, seemingly real and their histories are told in great detail. This gripping love trilogy is an intense but a wothwhile read. I felt like I was watching a movie. *Due to violence and the graphic nature of some scenes I do not recommend this book for teens.

This is one of the best books I've read in quite some time. You cannot put the book down and it moves quickly! Thank you for writing this book .

This book is definitely in the 18+ category. It is hot and steamy at moments and deeply emotionally moving in others. The past lives of the two main characters are fully developed throughout the novel and the ending will have you screaming NO because it leaves you wanting to know what happens!! Enough so that I immediately went and bought the second in this series! Marcelle Deschamps lost her beloved race car driver husband in a brutal accident. She can not get over it. She herself is a world class cyclist. One night she decides to pick up her mail and sees Stefan Ziegler lying in a pool of blood. She manages to get them out of there and ultimately saves Stephan's life. Stephan is a cold blooded mercenary but he and Marcelle seem to be able to get along while living in Marcelle's condo. Stephan falls in love with her but decides he is going to wait until she is ready--if ever. Then that fateful night when he loses control-He goes back to the rest of the mercenary crew-then the book ends OUCH. There are a couple of twists and turns which I really can't tell you--but I will re state-this book is totally for adult readers 18 years of age and older!! (It is not anything like Shades of Gray which I did not like!!).

I was expecting more vigilante action, but I enjoyed it nonetheless and purchased the next books in the series. Some scenes were drawn out unnecessarily, whereas others could have used more, especially the "twist" near the end -- wish the author got more into Marcelle's head there.
