I was known as the traitor’s daughter.
When I was five years old, my father was tortured, branded with the letter ‘Z’, then beaten and left for dead. The grueling punishment for his crime was a reminder to all others who dared threaten the Russian’s reign.

Until I grew up. No longer could he deny how much my existence had always been intertwined with his. And in order to survive the life I was thrown into, I was forced to learn my place inside of it.
Vlad Zalesky was a tyrant to the lost.
I hated him.

There’s been some questions regarding reading order and the transition from the Lights of Peril series to Devil’s Despair.
I can tell you without a doubt that you do NOT need to read Peril in order to follow Despair. Enough background into Ace’s past and being part of the MC Peril is offered throughout the story. Ace’s Redemption is a STAND ALONE as well as book one in the Devil’s Despair series. Although some of the characters from Peril make an appearance, it’s still okay not to have read about them.
Here’s an excerpt from Ace’s Redemption.

People fuck. It’s part of life. The human connection, whether it’s intimate and meaningful or not, is a necessary element for a person to feel accepted and grounded to something or someone bigger than themselves. What Cherry and I are about to do, thanks to her, pushes that shit to a whole new level.
I want inside her. I want to feel her clenching, moaning, and writhing in passion, begging me for more as she lies beneath me, taking everything I have to give. Her hair splayed out gently across my pillow, her desperate breaths mingled with mine as I take her mouth, and her legs spread wide as I thrust into her as far as I can get until we’re both shattered and sated. I’m not using her body to satisfy my own hunger or need, not this time. I’m using my body to make her mine.
“Ace, please. Slow down. My shoes!”
Turning back to look at her on the way to the truck, I realize she’s visibly stressed. I can help solve this shit for her. “Jesus Christ. Fuck the shoes, Cherry. Lose ‘em.”
Pulling my hand back, she stops me as I continue dragging her along. “No! These are new, they’re expensive and they’re cute.”
Cute or not, fuck the shoes.
Rushing to her and wrapping my hand around the side of her neck, I pull her to me in a quick gesture. As her body slams into mine, I bend my neck, take her mouth, and find it warm, wet, and completely compliant. This was not thought out on my part as it only increases my urgency to have her.
Not wanting to have a debate about her fucking shoes while my cock is throbbing and my breathing is ragged, I pick her up like a screaming bratty child and carry her the rest of the way to my ride. Her laugh, although addicting, isn’t helping, either.
I’m going to make her mine.
Finally, once I reach the truck with her in my arms, I set her down near the passenger side door and use the key fob to unlock it.
Sensing my state, Cherry decides this is a good time to tempt me further. “Ace.” Her voice is sultry and seductive – wanting.
“Shut up. Don’t fuckin’ talk, goddamn it. The sound of your voice alone is killin’ me.” She blinks in surprise, although I’m unsure why; surely the woman can see what a tormented state I’m in right now.
Opening the door for her to get in, she stalls and stands between the seats she should be taking and me, searching my face with those dark-blue eyes that are drowning in lust.
“Ace.” She glances down to see the strain in my jeans and her eyebrows lift; at the same time, her tongue licks her full and now savagely kissed bottom lip. “I thought we were friends.”
“We’re about to be friends that fuck. Get in.”
“Is this a good idea?”
“Yes.” I can’t think of one better.
One of the most highly anticipated books of 2014 has arrived, people!
I’ve waited, as the rest of you have, with a pointed impatience for Harper Sloan to round out her Corps Security Series and deliver us our beloved, misunderstood, and angered dark hero, Maddox Locke. Well, she did exactly that and she did it with a passion.
To describe their story would be to say it was fierce, raw, and poignant. This is not meant in the sense of brutality and violence (although some mild situations do arise).
It was fierce in terms of the hunger, suspense, and an ultimate love affair between the characters over the last four years. And about the guilt each carried regarding the loss of their beloved friend; allowing their sadness to nearly destroy them.
“Ever since the day that Coop died, I feel like I’ve been struggling to find my place.” – Em
Raw in terms of revealing what’s kept Maddox from letting go of his demons and also while outlining, specifically, what those demons were – many of his heartaches, we never knew. It wasn’t about a man who had a shaded past and didn’t want to drag someone he cared about down into it. No, this was about a HERO who selflessly sacrificed his life and happiness for others and struggled alone to survive the nightmares that continued to haunt him.
“Every bone in my body has screamed at me to take what she’s been offering for years. I’ve seen her. I know what she wants, but I won’t let my demons hurt her. Not my Emmy.” – Maddox
Most effectively, this story was poignant. I felt what Em felt. My thoughts were shifting as hers were while she deliberated on methods she could use to break through to Maddox and offer him the freedom from the ghosts that violently kept him out of reach.
“I loved you once, you know.” I whisper more to myself than to him, but he hears me because I watch his eyes close. “I loved you unconditionally even though I was – no, even though I am – nothing to you.” – Em.
“I was dying, daily, every time you would look at me but look right through me.” – Em
This story wasn’t about vengeance or retribution. To me, it was about learning to heal and trusting another person to take you from the dark and guide you to the light without sacrificing and losing themselves.
Em was a strong heroine and I have to say, during the course of the Corps series I didn’t give her enough credit. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with her. In the face of an angered and beaten Locke, her pity for him fell short and in its place she relied on her own hurt and devastation to make him see what he couldn’t – a man worthy of her in every way.
“I’ve seen just about every emotion possible from her over the years, but never has her anger been wholly turned on me.” – Maddox
Locke wasn’t a broken and battered man. He was a survivor that, even when he yearned for her with a passion for so long, he pushed her away for her own well-being.
Harper Sloan, this was a bittersweet story and it was beautiful executed. I think I’ll even miss the anticipation of their next installment but can’t wait to see what’s next!
Less than 12 hours – fingers crossed – Shame’s on the way!
