What would you do for love of country?
In a new America where almost no one can be trusted, Caroline Gerard lies unconscious in a government hospital as others decide her fate. She is a political dissident, wanted for questioning by a brutal regime that has come to power. As she recovers from her injuries, all she has are her memories of a rich and beautiful past.
What does it take to heal a broken heart?
As Caroline clings to life her thoughts drift to before the regime, when she was a rising star in the House of Representatives, widowed, and raising two precocious children. She remembers her unexpected attraction to fellow politician and playboy Jack McIntyre. Jack captures her attention with his rakish grin, disarming attitude, and dry wit, and soon their friendship blossoms into much more.
Who can you trust?
Under the new political system, Caroline doesn’t know what to believe, even her own vivid memories. Is the life she led real, or just a mirage? And is Jack truly the one to help her move on? Or are they just pawns in a political power play?
The Bellator Saga is a six part series. Each full length novel ends in a cliffhanger. For readers 18+. This saga contains adult situations, including non-gratuitous violence, explicit (consensual) sex, psychological and physical trauma, and an oftentimes dark plot.
The characters will live in your mind as you read and you will deplore what happens to the USA as the Union starts to fall apart. The love story, central to the book will hold your interest (at least it did mine). Whilst not exactly a cliff hanger ending, you are left wondering just what sort of recovery, if she’s allowed one, Caroline will make. I will review Book Two as soon as I have read it.
