Emilie Sjoberg is haunted by her past. As the manager of a Las Vegas sex club she's no stranger to bindings, but she can't shake the dreams that hold her down. Unable to put together the details of what happened, she's determined to find out --no matter the cost.
Darryl "Chains" Carruthers never looked back after he left the elite British intelligence agency, MI6, because of a brutally failed mission. Currently the head of security at a sex club, he's slowly rebuilding his life.
When his beautiful but mysterious boss disappears, Chains must revisit his own troubling past to find her because the past hasn't forgotten about either of them. As their feelings start to twist into something stronger than ever expected, they prepare to face it together. Chains will do anything to offer Emilie the redemption she desperately seeks and she's finally found the only Chains she'll ever need...but the cost of their picture-perfect future may be too high.
Author's Note: This series is somewhat darker than my other books. Although they are all HEA's, there are elements of BDSM, ménage, hate crimes, vigilante justice and LGBTQ relationships throughout the series. If you're concerned about trigger warnings, this may not be the series for you.

Redemption's Inferno is the third book in the Inferno series. Emilie Sjoberg is the sister of of Karl (Sidewinders series) and the ex-wife of Viggo (Temptation's Inferno). I was so excited when I found out that Emilie would be getting her own book and I could not have asked for a better partner for her than Chains. Emilie struggles with an event from her past and believes that the only way to get past it is to "pay for her crimes" (real or imagined). She leaves everything that she loves behind to travel to Europe to come to terms with the past. Darryl "Chains" Carruthers, the head of security at Club Inferno (the club that Emilie manages) sets off to find her and bring her home. Emilie and Chains' journey is not an easy one as they both have have past demons to lay to rest but if they can both overcome the past they will have a great future ahead of them. Emilie and Chains are both wonderful characters and it is always great to see characters from Kat's other series show up.
Kat Mizera's latest Inferno series book briefly uses the sex club as a setting but it isn't fun and games. "Redemption's Inferno" deals with two serious separate and disconcerting events in the pasts of the hero and heroine. Other than one disturbing London sex club scene the sex scenes between these extreme kinksters are tender and meaningful. Emilie Sjoberg's tormented by an event which occurred many years ago. Now that she's become a mother, the guilt's become intolerable. It's driven Emilie to push her desire for spankings and whippings to longer about BDSM; it's punishment. Emilie's spiraled to a dark place emotionally beautiful her eyes only hold sadness and her smiles are no longer bright. She's appeared in all of the Inferno series books as in the Sidewinder series. Her backstory's significant and woven into many of the characters in these books. Despite that "Redemption's Inferno" is a standalone book. Darryl "Chains" Carruthers is a former MI6 agent who now works at Inferno as security and assistant manager. He left MI6 after being betrayed by one of his own people on his last missions. Darryl's gorgeous, secretive, and loyal. He left England 5 years ago attempting to live under the radar fearing the traitor is still after him. Darryl fears for the safety of his loved ones and only communicates with his mother through vague newspaper ads. Chains doesn't get into relationships he claiming it's not his style. Deep down he doesn't want someone he loves to be targeted to get to him. He returns to England after Emilie flies there to turn herself in for a crime she allegedly committed. Chains and Emilie haven't spent much time alone together and only recently become single. Add to this trip a couple of matchmakers and embers slowly build into flames. Kat Mizera does an amazing job in this installment in the Inferno series. "Redemption's Inferno" is action packed, suspenseful, and chockfull of swoony romance. The who-dun-it aspect is surprising. And there are more than one very satisfying Happily Ever Afters. I believe that "Redemption's Inferno" might be my favorite book in the Inferno series. But Viggo and Jamie beat out Darryl and Emilie for most adorable couple. The internal monologuing is repetitive and it becomes tedious slowing down the pace. On the upside, the time spent at Darryl's mother's house is wonderfully entertaining and romantic. Darryl and Emilie have a good chemistry and are a really dynamic couple. I'd love to see a novella featuring Emilie's twin Sebastian and Misty; they sound like a lot of fun! But if the Inferno series ends with "Redemption's Inferno" it definitely ends on a high note.
