Romance Book Deal Of The Week – Kincaid by Mary James

Romance Book Deal Of The Week – Kincaid by Mary James

Book Details:

Title: Kincaid: Cerberus MC Book 1

Author: Mary James

Deal: FREE!!!!!! *

Publication Date: March 10, 2016

Genre: Romantic Suspense

(* price as of 6/27/2018 on Amazon – subject to change)

Are you a fan of military guys and biker gangs? If proud, strong and protective men are your thing, then this romantic suspense called Kincaid will make you swoon – I sure did! . Let me tell you a little more:

 

Emily (Emmalyn), a battered, abused wife needs to get away from her husband, or he will eventually kill her. Kincaid (Diego), former Special Forces and all male happens to be at the bar she is working at – and that at the night, where her husband decides to use her as a punching bag. While you can imagine some of what happens next, this story is not as cookie cutter as you may expect.

 

While there are some minor irritations I had with the story – I wish Emily would have a little more backbone, she is not portraited as the fighter that she could be – overall I loved it. Their chemistry and her fears were believable and powerful, the struggle all too familiar with some of us who have been in abusive relationships. This is not a light-hearted subject matter, but it is packaged with care, and concern on all fronts. 

The well-fleshed side characters make me hope that the Author has a lot for them in mind – all of Kincaid’s friends should get their own story and a happy ending.

 

This was my introduction to Mary James, but it will not be the last book of hers I will be devouring

 

Rating

  • 4 out of 5 stars
  • Quick read
  • Steamy
  • Awesome lead character!

 

Book Summary:

I am Emmalyn Mikaelson.

My husband, in a rage, hit me in front of the wrong person. Diego, or Kincaid to most, beat the hell out of him for it. I left with Diego anyway. Even though he could turn on me just like my husband did, I knew I had a better chance of survival with Diego. That was until I realized Kincaid could hurt me so much worse than my husband ever could. Physical pain pales in comparison to troubles of the heart.

I am Diego “Kincaid” Anderson.

She was a waitress at a bar in a bad situation. I brought her to my clubhouse because I knew her husband would kill her if I didn’t. Now she has my protection and that of the Cerberus MC. I never expected her to become something more to me. I was in more trouble than I’ve ever been in before, and that’s saying a lot considering I served eight years in the Marine Corp with Special Forces

Author: Stacey Rourke

Political propaganda would have us believe vampires are our friends. Fanged teddy bears misunderstood thanks to archaic lore. Activists picket for them to be welcomed into our society.

They claim vamps don’t kill.
They preach we are safe.
They … are dead wrong.

One year ago a hive slaughtered my family and left me for dead. Found by a team of scientists with their own agenda, I was forged into an unstoppable weapon.

I possess their strength, with none of their weaknesses.
I can move among them free from their crippling hunger.
I am their greatest threat.

Armed with this arsenal, vengeance will feed my desire to penetrate the seedy underbelly of their fetishized lifestyle and expose them for the monsters they truly are.
