I met Detective Nickie Savage in Book 3 of the Black Creek Series. I'm so glad to have found her again in her own series. I highly recommend the series to lovers of romantic suspense.

Nickie and Duncan work together to bring down a child sex slavery ring. You learn more about Nickie and Duncan's past as they work together to find the leaders and the girls. Their relationship get more complex due to their secrets and trust issues. Very good writing. Highly recommend. Waiting for book 2.

This was an excellent start to what I can only presume will be a very engaging series. Nickie Savage is a complicated woman and professionally driven detective. Some of her cases hit too close to home for comfort. Luckily her indispensable lover, and on-the-sly partner, Duncan Reed, has her back. And her heart.  I love how these two damaged souls form one beautiful whole when together. It's poetic, even when it shakes her up. They're a force to be reckoned with when they team up. The case they tackle together, and the ensuing tension, will keep you reading this multi-layered story. Warmly recommend. I will be reading the next.

I received a copy of this book from the author for a review. Savage Deception is the first book in the Nickie Savage series. So, I started reading the book under the impression that this was the first book involving the characters of Nickie Savage and Duncan Reed. However, after reading just a few pages, I found that some events that had occurred in the past were referenced in such a way, that seemed to suggested that the reader was supposed to be already aware of those events. That is when I found out that Nickie and Duncan have already appeared in Dark Vengeance the third book in the Black Creek series and Savage Echoes which is a prequel novella for this series. The plot of this book revolves around Nickie's past, and there many references to events and conversations, that took place in the two books that I have already mentioned above. Since I haven't read those books, in the beginning I was confused many times, and had to makes some assumptions about what might have happened in the previous books. This book doesn't provide much information about the events that took place in the previous books. Also, there is very little background history about the main characters Nickie and Duncan, as well as the supporting characters.  So, to really enjoy this book I would suggest that you read the previous two book featuring Nickie and Duncan before reading this one. In fact, it would be best if you read the Black Creek series first and then start reading the books in this series. Despite all that I really liked this book. The story has suspense, romance, some mystery and some action. The author has a really good writing style and maintains the suspense from the beginning to the end. The plot is fast paced and has no loopholes. I loved the characters of Nickie and Duncan. Both are haunted by the events in their past that threaten to destroy their present. But, in each other they find comfort and strength to face their nightmares, and to slay the demons of their past. Both Nickie and Duncan are complex characters that have multiple layers to their personalities. Though they both are very strong characters Nickie is more bad ass and outgoing. Duncan on the other hand is more calm and measured but, together they are perfect for each other. Nickie and Duncan have amazing chemistry and their romance feels very real and is not at all cheesy. Duncan is always there for Nickie no matter what and she is just as devoted to him. Most of the supporting characters have already appeared in the Black Creek series so, not much of their history is provided in this book. If you want to know more about them you will just have to read the Black Creek series. I had thought that all the demons of Nickie's past would be laid to rest in this book but that didn't happen. So, I will just have to wait for the next book to see how the story progresses. In the mean time I will definitely be reading the Black Creek series and Savage Echoes novella.

Nickie Savage is back, in her own series! We first met tough cop/detective with a mysterious past in Book 3 of the Black Creek Burning series, Dark Vengeance. We learn a little more about her in the short teaser novella, Savage Echoes. Now Savage Deception is here! I was happy to read this novel in pre-publication and it's absolutely wonderful. More of what you loved in R.T. Wolfe's previous books about Nickie's never-ending mission to wipe teen prostitution rings off the streets, and more of what you loved of the romance between Nickie and older Reid brother, Duncan. Get it today!

If you go back and look at all of RT Wolfe's other books you will find a big fat 5 star review from me. Why? Because I can't get enough of her! As a writer myself, I don't have a lot of time to read. But I MAKE time whenever Wolfe has another release. What I really like about SAVAGE DECEPTION is the way it seems to come more from Nickie's point of view. I'm going to admit, in most romances I'm more into the hero's point of view and don't really identify with the heroine. (I'm not sure if that makes me unusual or not.) And even in this series, it took me a bit to warm to Nickie, and that makes sense, because Nickie doesn't open up much and can even be unlikable at times. But you quickly become enamored of this saucy detective when you see why she's like she is. So her characters are great, what about the plot? The plot will blow you away! The intricacies, the twists and turns--Wolfe really makes it real. Buy RT Wolfe. Read it all. You won't be disappointed. One final note, I can't wait for the next in the Nickie Savage series, but I am also looking forward to Wolfe's next series. I can't imagine it being as good as this one, but she never fails to amaze me!
