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.”


Review: 5 STARS!!

This book...it is one of the most emotionally powerful books that I have read. K.C. Lynn's books always bring out intense emotions from me, but nothing like what this book did.

We met Christopher and Alissa in Resisting Temptation (I highly advise reading Resisting Temptation before reading An Act of Courage) and I fell in love with their characters and was anxious for their story. 

Alissa is one of my favorite heroines that K.C. Lynn has written. She is sweet, kind, caring, compassionate & fierce. When she loves someone, she loves them hard and protects them and stands up for them. Her and Christopher's relationship is a prime example of that. I felt so bad for what Alissa's mom put Christopher and Alissa through, but in the end, Alissa always followed her heart and always showed Christopher that she believed in him and knew that he was a good man.

Christopher didn't have the best childhood, but when he and Ruthie met Cade & Faith, their worlds changed for the better. Seeing Christopher as a teenager and then as an adult really opened my mind towards his character more. What that man endured at the hands of the enemy was absolutely heartbreaking. K.C. Lynn did such a wonderful job showing us his grief, guilt, brokenness and yet giving us glimpses of the teenager he was with his love of music and his love for Alissa.

These two characters have a connection that started when they were teenagers and never dimmed with time or years apart, if anything, it got stronger. I loved the passion between them, seriously, Christopher is one passionate man and his dirty talking skills are off the charts amazing!!! Watching Christopher break throughout this book broke my heart, but then watching Alissa be there for him, support him and just be his light, was beautiful to read. Christopher and Alissa are two of the most profound characters that K.C. Lynn has written and I loved every heart wrenching moment of their story.

This book wasn't just filled with longing and romance, it was also filled with drama and suspense and I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book. An Act of Courage is definitely going to be a book that I will re read over and over throughout time and I cannot wait to see what K.C. Lynn comes out with next!!
