Lorne has just been released from the prison after eight years. His head is not in the right place and being in his own house makes his skin crawl. The last thing he needs is losing all of his control at the sight a vixen sleeping in his bed.

Raina has been beaten, abused and broken down many times in her life. But she’s done with men and she’s done with them jerking her around. The sole purpose of her life now is to bring to justice the man who ruined her and her family.

Lorne needs to stay as far away from Raina as possible. Everything about her spells trouble but he cannot let her go. Each moment spent near her digs deeper into his skin and he years to show her what it really means to be “his”.

What started eight years ago will finally come to an end. Question is will it be as bloody and devastating? Or will The Cassidys and Holstens finally break the circle of pain and loss and live the happy lives they were meant to have?

YOU GUYS!!!!!!!! I have been waiting so long for Lorne’s book and I am just so happy SO HAPPY to have read it.

Raina is a bloody Queen and I won’t be surprised if one day she decided to raise an army and obliterate nations. She’ll totally win, btw. I really liked her character and I love the fact that she found it in herself to trust some people even after all the shit she went through. She is also smart and brave beyond my mortal comprehension. I AM IN AWE!

Lorne, my tortured soft baby. I love this man. My heart breaks for the all the years he lost with his family and so many other things he had so sacrifice. His character grew so much in this story that I couldn’t get enough of him. 10/10 would read another book just about Lorne living his day to day life.

I knew Lorne and Raina’s journey would be difficult. They have gone through too much pain to just magically be okay. I was prepared for it to be brutal to the core. But I didn’t really get the intensity I was hoping for. Don’t get me wrong, this book still made my heart hurt, it just wasn’t at that max 100%. I was also hoping we could get to see more of Lorne and Raina dealing with the mental aftermath of their struggles but it was sort of missing.

This entire trilogy was an emotional roller coaster but it was also one of the most epic stories I’ve ever read. These beautiful characters will forever be printed on my heart and I can’t even tell you how much I’ll miss them. I am deliriously happy and a tad sad it all ended. But this means more Pam goodness is on the way.

4.5 Stars!

The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.

We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.
Violent relief in a warm body.

Beneath her touch, I’m alive.
Against her skin, I’m redeemed.
Buried inside her, I forget the past.
Until the past takes her from me.

Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving.
I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.
I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.
