Where the Blame Lies

 

by Mia Sheridan

 

 

 

 

 

Abducted. 
Terrorized. 
Imprisoned. 
 
At nineteen-years-old, college student Josie Stratton was kidnapped by a madman and held shackled for ten months in an abandoned warehouse before she finally escaped her hellish prison. 
 
Eight years later, when the body of a young woman is found chained in the basement of a vacant house, Cincinnati Police Detective Zach Copeland is instantly reminded of the crime committed against Josie Stratton. Zach was just a rookie on the perimeter of that case, but he’s never forgotten the traumatized woman with the haunted eyes. 
 
As more information emerges, the crimes take on an even more sinister similarity. But Josie’s attacker died by suicide. Does the city have a copycat on its hands? A killer who picked up where the original perpetrator left off? Or are they facing something far more insidious? 
 
Josie has spent the last eight years attempting to get her life back on track, but now there’s a very real chance she could be the unknown suspect’s next target. As Zach vows to keep her safe, and Josie finds herself responding to him in a way she hasn’t responded to any man in almost a decade, the investigation takes on an even more complex edge of danger. 
 
As past and present collide, Josie and Zach are thrust toward a shocking and chilling truth. A revelation that threatens not only Josie’s life, but everything she’s been fighting so desperately to reclaim.

Casus belli !!

 

Where the Blame Lies

 

 

First this is not Mia Sheridan’s old school romance, angsty, emotional, and heart throb feels —- No, nope and not at all.  This is the DARK SIDE and I can NOT get enough!  Come to the dark side my book ho’s! 

There’s a fantastic cast, the characters were all easy to like, the storyline flowed continuesly, and the tears fell frequently, and the scenery written enhanced all the senses.

 

 

Mia Sheridan held nothing back pouring her emotions in true grit and raw form.  Trust me this true crime thriller is full of real life calamity, the scenes were raw, the characters portrayed great suffering, affliction and distress.  All of these emotions but most of all this is a story of survival, rising above and success.

 

 

Josie Stratton is the heroine and I do mean that in the literally sense, she is the survivor and she dominates in her supremacy.  The trial and tribulations she went through are no joke and sometimes hard to read, but in the end she rose above the darkness, fought to stay alive, and stayed the course.  She continued to live the dream, got a job, keeping a farm home, meeting friends and might have found actual love.

 

 

 

 

Zach and his partner Jimmy are on copy-cat murder/aduction case similiar to Josie’s, Zach was one on the responding officers to her crime about 8 years earlier.  I think these two souls might have imprinted at the time, who can tell with such horrors coming to light, but I got the feeling in Mia Sheridan’s talented fingers.

 

 

I really cannot say anything further except I loved all of the characters in this poignant suspenseful thriller and the romantic suspense is highly addictive.  But wait.. I have to say the twist at the end is a free fall into, um.. I’m not sure, I kinda liked the bad guy… dam me.

28dfe-synopsis_black

“Infidelity – it isn’t what you think”

It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule–one week only.

Or did it?

Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following their agreement but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.

Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?

Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli’s pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.
Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists and turns, the depth of this epic romantic suspense continues to reach new levels as past and present intertwine. The Infidelity series will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

DECEPTION is a full-length novel, over 300 pages, and the third of five books in the INFIDELITY series – It isn’t what you think!

Book 1- BETRAYAL

 28dfe-synopsis_black

One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as “Charli,” she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

“Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox “Nox” Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

“Is it really cheating if you’re doing it to yourself?”

“He owns you. Whatever he tells you to do you do”.

One year. No future. A past that won’t go away.

Lennox “Nox” Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn’t mean Satan himself isn’t watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?

“New rules…my rules.”

Alex “Charli” Collins found pleasure with Nox like she’d never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide?

Is it really cheating if you’re doing it to yourself?
