Four years ago Erin�s life changed drastically. Her drug-addicted brother killed her parents, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband, Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty when he�d arrested Stuart, but she�d been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the shadows of pain.

Now Matt is back, but it isn�t to attempt reconciliation. Her brother has escaped from Attica, and Erin is his next target. Matt will stop Stuart by any means necessary. But Stuart is a desperate man, and desperate men will do anything to get what they want.

Thrown together by treacherous circumstances, Matt and Erin fight a battle to stay alive and possibly figure out how to put the pieces of their destroyed lives back together again.

About the Author

I started writing years ago, and my first attempt was a contemporary romance that will never see the light of day. I think I may even have thrown it away by now. It was absolutely horrific as I knew nothing about well�anything to do with writing.

After that, I started writing fantasy romances about wizards and wizards, and once those took off, I segued to paranormal romances (hello, vampires and ghosts) and romantic suspense. I also write articles for various magazines, including The Writer�s Journal, Writer�s Magazine, Writer�s Weekly, Writing for Dollars, Absolute Write, and Funds for Writers.

I�m fortunate to make my home in historical Charleston, South Carolina. Beautiful city. Beautiful people. When I�m not writing, I love to read, create videos, keep Target in business, play visitor in my city, and drink lots of coffee.

When I was contacted to read this one I hesitated.  This is definitely outside of what I normally read.  1) It’s not YA. 2) Its not contemporary romance.  3) The cover was a bit on the hokey side. But for some reason the synopsis really got me and I decided to go for it.  I must say I’m really glad that I did because I really enjoyed this one! Matt and Erin have been living apart for four years but are still in love with each other. I really fell into the relationship between Matt and Erin. I felt like the concerns about Stuart were a bit of a side story.  I mean I knew it was happening, but it wasn’t my overall focus, Erin and Matt just pulled me in! The story was so great that I found myself just reading totally cheering for Matt and Erin and hoping that they figured out a way to work things out. Overall, I really enjoyed it!

This book has thrills, chills, mystery, mayhem, and a second chances to make it work.  Erin's life was turned upside down four year's ago: her parents were murdered by her brother and to top it off, her husband (at the time) arrested her brother and put him in jail.  Erin couldn't handle it anymore so she divorced her FBI husband Matt and tried to make a new life for herself.  Now, her brother has escaped and is out to kill her.  Matt is sent to protect the woman he still loves with all his heart, Erin.  Rachel Carrington does a wonderful job of weaving the story line of the brother's revenge along with the feelings of hurt and love between Erin and Matt.   You feel the emotional struggles of both of them throughout the story and are rooting for that second chance to happen.   The book was faced paced and a page turner.  I would highly recommend this book.

A few weeks ago I was looking for a book to read, I was in the mood for an action, suspense romance. At once I thought of a book I had read a few months ago. But I couldn’t remember the authors name or the name of the book. All I could recall was the intriguing storyline. FBI agent is still mourning his divorce. His wife left him because she couldn’t handle the fact, that he arrested her brother after killing their parents. She wanted to help her brother and not see him locked up. Now 4 years later, Matt learns that Erin’s brother has escaped from prison and he is out to tract down and kill his sister. She did testify against him during his trial. She never came to visit him in jail, she just abandoned him. Matt travels across the country to find his wife and do whatever he can to protect her. You can imagine that Erin is not happy to see Matt when he walks into her coffee shop. As Matt tries to tell her about Stuart’s escape, she still doesn’t want to believe that her brother would ever harm her. She still believes that she can help him, change him. She can’t understand why Matt won’t help her. Matt struggles with her way of thinking, can’t understand how she could still stand beside her brother after what he had done. After all he was just doing his job as a FBI agent. There are tons of hurts feeling between both these two, lots of misunderstandings. But the secrets that Matt and Erin are keeping, they both still love each other very much, each to stubborn to make the first move. Will Matt be able to save Erin from her brother, will they finally tell each other how they really feel. Can they still have their HEA or will they go their separate ways once the case is over. QUESTION….how can I remember all those details of a story, but for the life of me, I can’t remember the name of the book or the Author? Damn, I couldn’t even remember what the cover looked like. So I finally turned to my FaceBook page leaving a post beseeching my friends for help. I gave a very brief description on the contents of the book. Within a few minutes, Ms. Rachel Carrington posted this message on my wall…. It sounds a lot like my book “Extreme Measures”. ….That you BETA read for me a few months ago. *red face* Oh GREAT...What a time for my memory to return. No wonder I couldn’t find it in my Nook, or Goodreads, Amazon or B&N. So yes, I HIGHLY recommend “Extreme Measure “and I’m quite sure I’ll never forget this book title or the Author ever again.
