Five years ago, I escaped a dangerous life I had always wanted to leave. I got away. I found freedom. But it cost me the love of my life.

For five years I lived in hiding, protecting my most valuable secret while Sayer Wesley sat in prison paying for both our sins. I promised to love him forever. I promised to never leave him.

I broke my promises.

Five months ago Sayer found me.

Five weeks ago, I was forced to face my past.

Five days ago, someone took my daughter. They kidnapped her in order to make Sayer and me suffer. I will do anything to get her back. Even if that means coming clean to Sayer, letting him into my life and introducing him to our daughter.

All I wanted was to protect her from this life and now she’s right in the middle of the chaos. Sayer is the only one that can help me. He’s the only one that can get her back.

But it might mean losing him again.

Fifteen years ago, I met Sayer Wesley. Now I must pay the consequences for falling in love with a con man.

Well worth the heart-stopping cliffhanger…  

Consequence, by Rachel Higginson is the conclusion to the high-paced thriller Constant, of “The Confidence Game” duet.  Interwoven in the secretive and brutal world of the Russian bratva, the series explores the ultimate con game that Caroline and Sayer must play to escape the iron grip of an organization that only allows people to leave in a body bag.  While Fate seemed to have brought them together and  caused an inexplicable bond to form it also tore them apart.  Now Sayer is rotting in jail while Caro is living a life in hiding to protect a precious secret, not only from a past the hunts her but from the very man who still has her heart.

Rachel continues to use flashbacks and the present, like she did in Constant, to develop the story of Caro and Sayer’s relationship and the events that force them to play a high-stakes confidence game, one that their very lives depend on.  If that isn’t suspenseful enough, Rachel throws in a few plot twists and turns for good measure.  Just when you think there is a break for your hear rate to return to normal Caro and Sayer reconnect.  Their inability to fight the inexplicable and combustible connection they have always had for each other makes your heart race for a totally different reason.  Time and distance have only heightened their awareness of the almost unquenchable need they have for each other.  But, will this unmistakable love be enough to overcome the ultimate con, the one that has been built upon lie after lie and involving layer upon layer of manipulation and deceit, which their lives have become?

Rachel is one of my favorite adult, contemporary fiction writers.  Her stories are always interesting and unique and filled with the right amount of sexual tension and passion.  She never fails to thoroughly entertain!

As an added bonus both books are still available to read for free with .
