The Patricia A. Rasey Homepage
Two long years have passed since Marcus “Snake” Gallego left behind Henry County and Detective LeAnne McVeigh, leaving her to mourn the fact he had ridden into the sunset without her. But when he finally returns to her Ohio town, he isn't alone. Snake has brought along a friend, Egan Tate, who looks the epitome of evil. And if things couldn't possibly get worse, her best friend, the good doctor Whitney Montgomery, has her eyes set on Tate.
“Ready?” she asked. Tate swore she hid a smile. Yes, she probably loved the idea of causing him distress.
When a vicious murder suddenly stirs the relatively peaceful community to turmoil, a murder reminiscent of the killings that plagued the county several years earlier, LeAnne begins to wonder about this mystery man Snake has befriended. Has a copycat killer truly emerged, or does Henry County have a ghost on its hands?
He nodded. Whitney placed one gloved finger at his brow to draw the wound taut, then carefully stuck the needle through the skin. Again, Tate didn’t so much as flinch, even though the small prick hurt like hell.
After pulling the thread through the wound and tying it off, she snipped the end. “You doing okay?”
Hell, no, he wanted to shout. Having her this close between his spread thighs was much more torturous than any needle and thread going through his skin. Like it or not, she had sent his blood pumping in his veins. It was a wonder the wound didn’t spray a crimson fountain. As it was, his leathers had suddenly become constricting.
“Just stitch the god-damned wound,” he grumbled. What did he care if she thought any worse of him. He needed to get the hell out of the hospital and as far away from the doc as possible.
Moments later, she snipped the last stitch and checked her handiwork. “You’re going to live. Doesn’t look like you’ll get much of a scar from this.”
Tate studied Whitney as her finger gently traced the wound. When their eyes locked, he felt as though someone had delivered a sucker-punch to his gut. He couldn’t remember the last time he had wanted a woman as badly as he did the classy lady before him. As of late, taking a chick to bed had become more of a habit, just a routine, something he did. But this one…this one he wanted with the force of a hurricane. Somehow she had gotten beneath his skin.
And that…that he never allowed…
Gritty, realistic and down-right
I believe Patricia Rasey knows exactly how to hook a reader right from the
very beginning, which is what she did with her latest thriller. Patricia
pulls no punches with her books. They are gritty, realistic and down-right
She takes us back to Napoleon, Ohio, the setting for KISS OF DECEIT, the
first book that introduced us to LeAnne McVeigh and Marcus "Snake" Gallego.
EYES OF BETRAYAL begins two years later with Snake rolling back into town
after being gone for two long excruciating years but he's not alone. He
has a fellow biker and a woman with him this time. The man is Egan Tate, a
former member of The Lords of Lucifer, a motorcycle gang based out of LA
and the woman is Chief Randy Craig's girl Virginia Summers.
Tate and Snake decide to go out after settling Ginny in at Snake's house
and when they get back they find that Ginny's been killed much in the same
way that Snake's first wife was killed. What does this mean and what will
LeAnne's friend Whitney Montgomery is a doctor and the Deputy Coroner. She
thinks Tate is a hunk but he's not her type whatsoever so why does she get
all hot and tingly every time she's near him? What's Tate doing in their
little town and is he a murderer? That's just what LeAnne and Whitney need
to find out before anything else is said and done. Can this happen before
anyone else is hurt or killed? That remains to be seen.
This book had me on pins and needles throughout the whole book. I was so
glad to see Leanne and Marcus (Snake) get back together. I was especially
glad to see that the case from KISS OF DECEIT solved in this book but the
cliffhanger ending had me clamoring for the next book in this series ASAP.
Patricia Rasey can't write it fast enough for me!
