Synopsis

She’s the light from his past.

 

 

 

He’s the one her heart has always longed for. 
Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in. 
When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.
Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was. 
His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul. 
One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.
***
This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.

 

 

 


Excerpt

One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.
Something passes between us.
A decision.
A choice.
No more fighting this.
“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.
The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.
A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”
I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.
At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.
He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.
His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.
His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.
                “So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.
                 I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.
                Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.
                “Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”
                “Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?
                “Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”
                His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.
                What we did have.
                “The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”
                “Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.
                He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.
                Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.
                “Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”

An Act of Courage
KC LYNN

Holy, crap! This book had me all over the place. I cried tears of joy and tears of pain. I laughed more than once and I rooted hard for Alissa and Christopher.

There really wasn't anything I didn't like about this book. I read it in one sitting because I was so captivated by the story that I couldn't put it down. You know those people you see sitting at stop lights reading the paper? That was me!! Except I had my kindle in hand. Seriously, people. it's that good.

I've had mad love the the Acts of Honor series since book one, and I truly believe they just get better and better. This book was a long time coming and something fans of the series have waited for. This is a relationship that we've watched slowly develop and one that, I personally, have cheered the hardest for.

An Act of Courage is intense and heartbreaking. But it's heartwarming and sexy, emotional and steamy. It's equal parts tear jerker and HOT!!! It's an unforgettable story of hope and healing. It's a lesson in all the things it means to find your true love. This is a book that will stay with you long after you turn the last page.

I hope that you give Alissa and Christopher a chance. You won't regret it.
