Is it possible that there are people out there who haven’t been reading this series?  If you are one of them, you must rectify this immediately!  Tori St. Claire has an amazing talent to tell a a story full of intrigue and suspense and even some action, with a great storyline and very plot driven, but packed full of explosive heat!  LIE TO ME won’t give you much of a chance to catch your breath and will have you panting for more!

How can love be found amidst so much lying and betrayal?  Alexei has been working undercover in the Russian human trafficking trade.  After a night that opened up both his heart and Sasha’s, he sold her to a shiek.  But he’s never forgotten her, those eyes that looked straight to his soul like no one else had been able to before.  And he let her go to an uncertain fate.

Years later, his mission is to rescue one of the women and return her to her father, and the last girl he was expecting to come across was Sasha.  Their reunion leads them into an emotional and dangerous roller coaster as there is more than one group of people after Sasha and he will have to protect her without knowing who to trust anymore.

This book has it all!  A tortured, alpha hero.  A damaged but strong heroine.  Some deep dark skeletons in both their closets.  More betrayal.  A lot of action in and out of bed.  Even a couple different menage partners.  A blood-pounding, edge of seat, toe curling adventure!  Truly a must-read book!

About Tori St. Claire

National Bestselling author Tori St. Claire grew up writing. Hobby quickly turned into passion, and when she discovered the world of romance as a teen, poems and short stories gave way to full length novels with sexy heroes and heroines waiting to be swept off their feet. She wrote her first romance novel at seventeen.

While that manuscript gathered dust-bunnies beneath the bed, she went on to establish herself as a contemporary, historical, and paranormal author under the pen name, Claire Ashgrove. Additionally, she writes strictly historical romance as Sophia Garrett. Her writing, however, skirted a fine line between hot and steamy, and motivated by authors she admired, she pushed her boundaries and made the leap into erotica, using the darker side of human nature and on-the-edge suspense to drive grittier, sexier, stories.

Her erotic romantic suspense novels are searingly sensual experiences that unite passion with true emotion, and the all-consuming tie that binds -- love.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
