A Chimera novel

A vengeance quest that began twenty-five years ago...

Sold to the highest bidder, Alana Conti must fight for her life--and for her soul--when she comes face to face with Law, the mysterious underworld boss who obeys no laws but his own. His touch is commandingly sensual and Alana yields, taking the first steps into his intriguing life of crime and web of carnal promise.

Law's heart burns white hot but not for Lana--for revenge. The unspeakable crimes committed against his family cannot go unpunished. Senator Conti's beautiful, rebellious daughter is the perfect lure to draw his sworn enemy out from an island fortress.

As Lana becomes an integral part of Law's high-stakes world of vice, spies, and global politics, she accepts the reality of her situation: she's fallen in love with an outlaw who can give her everything but her independence... and his love.

Forced to acknowledge his feelings for Lana, Law has no option but to surrender the one thing she desires most--her freedom...

About the Author

Karin is a multi-published, national bestselling, award-winning author.

Karin has sold more than a dozen stories to US publishers: Kensington, Simon & Schuster, and Penguin Random House. Her self-publishing debut, THE CHRONICLES of KATRINA, was met with resounding enthusiasm. Never one to disappoint her readers, Karin happily launched the spinoff series The Bad Boys of the Bay, featuring the heroes she knows so well–hot cops. Translation rights to Karin’s books have been licensed in Japan, Thailand, Germany, France, Spain, Brazil, Italy, Portugal and the UK.

In 2008, Karin’s novel JADED (Simon & Schuster) won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Erotic Romance Suspense. In 2011, her paranormal romance BLOOD LAW (Berkley) won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice award for Best Erotic Fiction and was the first book in her Blood Moon Rising series. In 2012, the second book in the trilogy, BLOODRIGHT, was nominated for the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Erotic Paranormal Romance. Karin’s other awards include a CAPA and the Holt Medallion, as well as a finalist nod for the Prism. Her debut single title, GOOD GIRL GONE BAD (Simon & Schuster), was featured in the October 2006 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

Karin’s most rewarding award, however, was not bestowed for her storytelling skills but for her mentorship of unpublished writers. She was honored to receive RWA’s (Romance Writers of America) Pro Mentor of the Year award in 2008. She has served as president of her local RWA chapter in San Francisco and as Director-at-Large on the RWA National Board of Directors.

Karin has been married to her own hot cop–now licensed Private Investigator–for over thirty years and she writes what she knows. She has also started and sold several profitable businesses, but her true love is writing passionate love stories. When she isn’t writing, Karin loves to travel and does so extensively, meeting readers and sharing her knowledge via workshops at writer conventions and conferences.

This book is the first in what might possibly be a trilogy. It starts hard and fast with Lana waking up in a van, bound, gagged and vaguely remembering how she consented to allow herself to be bid upon in an extreme auction. I’d like to say that she was coerced or forced even but I’d be lying because Lana is a drug addicted stripper who has reached rock bottom in her attempts to run far away from her past and the comfortable life she has left behind. Law is the hard, uncompromising man who rules his club and indeed his businesses with a rod of iron. He has his own reasons for taking Lana but does he intend to use her or save her ? One thing he does know is that Lana is a way for him to finally get the revenge he has waited twenty five years for but Lana has no intention of staying his prisoner so let battle commence ! I honestly wasn’t sure when this started if it was going to turn out to be a paranormal story as when Lana first encounters Law she seems to think people disappear and reappear at will ! Upon reflection I think perhaps because she was high at the time it obviously affected how she viewed her situation but yes I did find it a tad confusing. Pretty quickly though it’s obvious that this is a contemporary story that features two very damaged souls who don’t believe in love but can perhaps find hope in each other’s arms. This chemistry and sexual tension was palpable and the author takes her time to explore the dynamic between the couple. When they do eventually give in completely to their shared passion this reader almost felt like cheering ! This book was exciting, surprising and just so good that I cannot wait to find out what happens next and although not exactly a cliffhanger there’s definitely much more to explore . This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
