Review: Savage Deception by R.T. Wolfe + $100 GC #Giveaway


Blurb: 

Busy juggling loan sharks and Amber Alerts, Detective Nickie Savage makes time when the FBI seeks her expertise with a child trafficking ring. But when Nickie discovers that the men running the ring are the same ones who abducted her as a young teen, the case gets personal.
Risking her badge, Nickie goes rogue. Luckily, she has Duncan Reed, along with his wire tapping and surveillance expertise. But Duncan also wants to take their relationship to the next level.

Now, Nickie must choose: break her own rules and risk her heart or forge ahead alone. 


Review:



Wow. What a story. R.T. Wolfe combines mystery, suspense, and romance in this exciting detective story. Nicki Savage is strong and vulnerable, a tough cop with a terrifying past. Duncan Reed loves her unconditionally. She’s not so sure. What they do agree on is saving girls from prostitution. Heightening the suspense, Nicki feels safe with Duncan to reveal her past, one glimpse at a time. The FBI adds unnecessary complications. They’re arrogant and act like they’re doing her a favor by exploiting her knowledge and experience in rescuing girls. They reminded me of the jerks in the first Die Hard movie.

This is the beginning of a new series. However, I felt a little like I came in after the beginning. The reader would benefit from reading the short story prequel Savage Echoes (free for Kindle, at this time). That being said, the characters are well-developed--not just Nickie and Duncan but their families, too. The plot carries the reader on such a downhill ride, it’s hard to put it down. Not a good idea to read this at bedtime unless you don’t have to go to work in the morning. Well done, Ms. Wolfe.

About the Author:


R.T. Wolfe enjoys creating diverse characters and twining them together in the midst of an intelligent mystery and a heart encompassing romance. It's not uncommon to find dark chocolate squares in R.T.'s candy dish, her Golden Retriever at her feet and a few caterpillars spinning their cocoons in their terrariums on her counters. R.T. loves her family, gardening, eagle-watching and can occasionally be found viewing a flyover of migrating whooping cranes.

Authors in Bloom Blog Hop



Welcome to the 3rd annual Authors in Bloom Blog Hop. This is my first time and I hope you have as much fun as I am.



Spring is my favorite time of year mainly because of new growth. Since I moved last fall, I had to hurry and plant bulbs so I would have tulips and daffodils this spring. My tulips are poking their heads out of the ground right outside my office window. Here in Michigan we had a horrendous winter. The snow is finally gone around our house. Yay! 

GARDENING TIP



Planting spring bulbs is easy and they produce every year, each time more abundantly. The bulbs will multiply until they are too crowded. So every four or five years, it helps to dig them up and divide. Tulips are among the most colorful of the spring bulbs. If you want continuous color, choose bulbs that are early blooming (should say on the package), mid-season and late blooming. For the effort expended one fall, you will enjoy color for many years.



My latest romantic suspense ONE RED SHOE takes place in spring. Here’s the blurb.


Daria Mason’s life is too predictable. Nothing ever happens in her small Iowa town where everybody knows everybody else. But when she travels to New York City looking for a little excitement, she never expects to bring home a wounded spy.

From the moment agent Sam Jozwiak steals intel vital to US security from a Russian Mafia kingpin, Murphy’s Law takes over. No matter how he covers his tracks, the kingpin’s assassins find him. What’s worse than getting shot in the butt? Accepting help from an Iowa tourist.

Sam and Daria flee cross country with the assassins right behind them. Sharing danger and excitement—and a few kisses—with Sam soon has Daria convinced he’s the man for her. He thinks she’ll be better off once he’s out of her life for good. With their lives on the line, can she convince him they belong together?

What is your favorite spring flower?
