Synopsis

Learning to find strength in brokenness…

Fashion designer Sofie Fields may seem to have a perfect life from the outside. The wounds she carries are the emotional kind, and since she refuses to get close to anyone, they remain. She once knew a great love, but a sequence of events forced her into a choice she thinks is unsurvivable. A loveless marriage leaves her empty, damaged. The only light is the step-daughter she clings to and adores. After her divorce, Sofie is certain the love from her past is lost forever. A deathbed confession changes it all.

Alex Strand is a successful attorney and the middle child who is in one way or another helping out his brothers, Nik and Even. All the Strand brothers are known for their Viking-like stature along with good looks, but Alex is by far the one who turns the most heads. His movie star appearance coupled with laid back charm is beyond appealing, yet if one cares to look deeper they will see it’s a façade. Alex hides secrets well until the skeletons he’s kept begin to break out, one by one.

The game to catch a madman continues. Alex is desperately in search of evidence necessary to bring down Senator Caleb Reynolds once and for all. What he doesn’t foresee is how his past and present will collide with enough force to shake his foundation.

Hearts need to be mended.
Time is running out.
Obstacles are placed.
Do Alex and Sofie have what it takes to overcome?

**Due to violence, strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for 18+. **

**My Review**

I just love all the Strand Brothers! It just makes this a pretty awesome series. Broken

another wonderful story and great addition to the other two books. I waited patiently

for Lora Ann to put pen to paper for this one and though Branded will always be my

favorite, I very happy with Alex’s story.

If you have loved and lost do you try again? Or do you continue to just exist? Alex

sees the love that is now part of his brothers lives, but he still keeps relationships

at arms length.

What happens with an evil as such needs to be contained but has power and wealth

to continue to do just what he wants. The Senator a well played and written character,

no don’t think I like him. Just have to like how plays his role. Amazing intellect, that of

a sociopath.

As evil as the Senator is the Strand Brothers, are never far from reminding him that

they are brothers and have each others backs. Ah then there’s whats in the dark will

always come to life, a lost love never forgotten.  A life revealed that will have a ripple

effect that will throw Alex in a tail spin, will his brothers be able to help him.

This mayhap should have had a warning lable, its not all rainbows and butterflies.

But it will keep you intrigued and turning the pages until the end. I do recommend it,

though its not a stand alone, grab Branded and Bound. Enjoy

Excerpt

“Whoa there, cowboy.” A small feminine hand met my chest. “What the hell has you in such a tizzy?”
I looked down into the eyes of Shannon, the detective I’d had the privilege of working with, as well as sharing a few heated nights of passion. I attempted a smile, capturing her hand and bringing it to my lips. “Nothing my favorite redhead can’t fix.”
“Cool your heels, bubba. I’m here on business.” She winked, letting me know the possibilities that waited once she was through with whatever case had brought her here.
“Anything I can help with?”
“Yes, actually,” she said, backing away and beginning to walk towards the entrance.
I followed suit, matching my long strides to her shorter ones. While holding the door open for her, I examined her tiny yet firm ass in action. Casually, I adjusted my cock before we walked down the hallway. “So…how can I help?”
“This is about Ari.” Her voice now held a professional tone.
Fuck me. “What about her?”
She stopped dead in her tracks and turned to face me. “I’ve found her birth parents.”
I seethed, “Who the hell are they, Shannon? I swear when I get my hands on those two.”
She swallowed hard and glanced away. Before I could demand more information, Sofie joined us.
“I’m sorry to interrupt,” Sofie said as she reached us.
Shannon glanced sideways and answered, “You’re fine. How may I help you?”
I was not so kind. Barely leashing in my wrath, I bit out, “What the fuck do you want, Sofie?”
She squared her shoulders and stood firm in the face of my disdain. “You don’t ever speak to me like that again, Alex.”
Shannon coughed to hide her giggle. Damn women. Sofie held out her hand towards Shannon and introduced, “I’m Sofie Fields. Pleased to make your acquaintance.”
“I’m Detective Shannon McLeary, and the pleasure is all mine. I believe I own at least three of your remarkable creations.”
Sofie blushed. “Wow. I just never know who I’ll run into that knows my designs.”
“You have amazing talent and a keen eye for color and texture,” Shannon gushed.
“Thank you,” Sofie humbly replied.
I stood there glowering at the woman who had ripped my heart out all those years ago and never gave it back. I thought some piece of it was still there to share with Shannon. Now, I wasn’t so sure about that.
