He's found her at last
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.
Only to lose her to a nightmare
Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he's the one who can save her. He also knows he's beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?
Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads (Fatal Truth, #1)
Step onto the dark side of the street, where monsters live, kill and torment, yet through it all an unlikely romance takes root among the blood, gore and evil that stalks…
Cain will stop at nothing in his efforts of SAVING MERCY from the hands of death, even if those hands belong to him. Cain is damaged, but he is also gifted with a connection to blood that allows him to re-create a crime for the authorities. Although it takes its toll on him it is his way of making amends for horrors from the past, a way to re-pay a debt he didn’t owe. It was during the investigation of one crime scene that brought his past roaring back in all of its bloody horror and he knows there is one woman who knows what it means. And her life is in danger…
Mercy knows of the terror Cain sees, she survived a bloody massacre and has become a prisoner of medications and doctors with devious intentions. If Cain doesn’t save her soon, she will become a victim of a bloody death, but this time the killer will not fail.
Can Mercy trust the man who vows to save her? He has a past closely tethered to hers and he feels he is lost to the demons of death he was born to. She sees so much more and their attraction may blur the weakness that lay within his soul. Sometimes love is all it takes to kill the beast…
Leave it to Abbie Roads to create a dark and bloody world filled with edgy tension and pull love out of the twisted hatred. Well done! Taut, rapid fire pacing that will keep readers plowing through each page in an effort to discover who dunnit, why and how! I was hooked from the first page as one man on a mission of redemption finds that he too is saved.
I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
