BULLET TO THE HEART

Series:  No Mercy, Book 1
Publication Date:   10/3/2013
Publisher:  Taliesin Publishing

Book Blurb:
She was born to love then taught to kill. She has become everything but is no one.

Known only as Bullet she was long ago forced to shed the name her parents gave her. Changed, molded and trained to kill with sharp-shooting efficiency she is one of The Collective’s most valuable assets. In a cadre of killers, Bullet is death waiting but her time for vengeance has come.

He was loved and then he lost. He has become a hunter in search of revenge.

Everything was taken from Rand the day a bullet ended the lives of his beloved wife and daughter. He has searched for their killer seven long years and may have her in his hands. Rand has suffered but now the time has come to make The Collective pay or die trying.

Joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin. Retribution draws them together but before all is said and done they will learn love can either break you or make you stronger.

pearls' review:

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.  It is a common need for revenge that joins Bullet and Rand together, but an even stronger feeling that allows their hardened hearts to beat again.  Focused on their objective, each fights their mutual attraction.  She doesn't know how to hope for more, and he doesn't know how to trust her.  Although both are tortured by the past's murder of innocents, when the time comes, will they choose revenge or each other?  I enjoyed reading their dance, watching them move closer, only to shy away; to let each other in, only to pull their shields back up. Nothing felt contrived or forced. This is a story of the evil in the world--how it can crush dreams and hopes.  But also how love can create a spark in the darkness, bringing even the most broken up from the pit of despair.  And how the will to survive can overcome the harshest conditions.

A boon can be punishment and a punishment can be a boon.  Love can be both a boon and leverage used for punishment. Is Mercy a sign of weakness or of strength of character?  Only the unfeeling, unloving can escape this dichotomy.  I am so excited this is a series.  I enjoyed watching Bullet evolve from a tool of destruction to a woman in love.  I can't wait to watch her sisters (Arrow, Bone, and Blade) as they continue their journeys.   

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Lea Griffith began sneaking to read her mother’s romance novels at a young age. She cut her teeth on the greats: McNaught, Woodiwiss, and Garwood. A firm believer that love makes the world go round, she still consumes every romance book she can put her hands on, but now she writes her own.  

Lea lives with her husband and three teenage daughters in rural Georgia. Two dogs, a cat, and a Betta fish named Coddy George complete a family always in motion. When not working at the EDJ, she’s usually at her keyboard, using every spare second to write. Science fiction, paranormal and contemporary romance, oh my! Nothing is off-limits when it comes to her writing.
