For U.S. marshal Rourke Kincaid, there's the law…and then there's his law. When the two don't agree, he always trusts his instincts. A killing spree has gripped the Northwest, showing a strange connection that only he sees, and now the old rules of justice no longer apply. Forced to turn rogue, he goes deep undercover to track his mysterious female suspect to a quiet, unassuming café in the wild, isolated mountains of Beartooth, Montana.
But encountering Callie Westfield complicates his mission in ways he never expected. As suspicious as she seems, her fragile beauty and sexy charm get to Rourke. Then the gory crimes begin anew. With his heart suddenly at war with his instincts, he has only two options. Either turn Callie over to the law, or put everything—including his badge and his life—on the line to protect her.
I could use a million words and still not describe how incredibly brilliant this book is. It’s a sophisticated thriller that had so many dangerous curves I didn’t think Rourke and Callie were going to make it out alive. Did they? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out the answer.
The characters are intricately crafted and the plot is mind-blowing. The romance was subtle but not understated and the excitement level was through the roof!
One of the best books I’ve EVER read. I HIGHLY recommend Mercy to anyone who loves a good thriller!
