He smells the stink of political maneuvering in this case and he can see the handwriting on the wall. Hell, the words are three feet high and written in crayon. Someone in his own agency wants a target on Liam Mercier’s back but McKenzie would be damned if he’d put one there. The damaged man currently in his custody needs his protection, not manipulation. That’s why he’d agreed to use a safe house that was off the grid. Throwing away his rarely used FBI procedure book had nothing to do with the protective urges he felt around Liam. Nope, not a damn thing to do with heavy doses of desire, or spikes of lust. He was just doing his job, after all, he has a killer to catch and a victim to keep alive. Protecting his best bet of taking that sick bastard down was his civic duty.
Forced to face the nightmares of his past or lose his pension, Liam Mercier did the only thing he could do. He walked back into his personal hell. The man assigned to protect him is everything Liam wanted and needed—four years ago. Leaving the small island of sanity he’d been existing on could cost him everything. But being hunted by a genius, sadistic killer without the protection of the sexy, intense, agent was a guaranteed death sentence. Fate had dictated Liam’s course four years ago. The only thing he questioned was when his killer going to finish his work.
Okay, so, I swear I read the blurb…. I did! This was a very suspenseful book! My sweet, kind heart! As unprepared as I was, my own fault, this was the type of book I love! A psychological thriller. Having taken forensic psychology in college I am always fascinated with the minds of serial killers.
In A Heart’s Desire we are really thrown in there. It’s told in duel POV. Steele, a current FBI agent assigned to track down a serial killer who escaped. Liam who is this psychopath’s only living victim. When I say victim I mean by the time he was rescued you wonder how he lived at all. I can’t imagine having a killer’s attention for one day let alone the thirteen Liam endured.
From the beginning, literally the first page, I knew this was going to take a road into darkness. But Kris Michaels did something quite wonderful. She balanced it. She brought light back into Liam’s life and gave him his strength back.
Now, if you think the author just was all “catch the guy the end” than you’re sadly mistaken! This killer doesn’t go down without a fight, and leaving his mark on many.
If you’re a fan of these types of books AND you have a strong stomach than grab this one! There were parts I winced at I won’t lie. This guy is pretty much my worst nightmare. I’ve read Kris Michaels a few times and her versatility as an author is a huge treat! Make sure you check this out!
