Author: Tiffany Snow

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Mystery
It only takes a second, a fraction of a second, to forever change your life. That moment happened to me years ago. I did something you can’t take back, and I’d do it again. It’s a secret I’ll take to my grave—which is probably sooner rather than later—and that’s okay. I live with my choices.
Three things I’ve learned—bad things happen to good people, life isn’t fair, and the bad guy doesn’t get the girl. And I’m most definitely the bad guy.
I’ve always made my own decisions. I’ve never apologized for them, and I never will. Regret is an emotion I’ve never had to face.
Until now. Until her.
She once told me that what I did, killing people for a living, wasn’t good for my soul. I told her I was beyond saving. The truth is that I’m not worth saving. Not anymore.
But when I look in her eyes, I wish I was the man she deserves, the man she loves.
Bored, Kade glanced at his watch. He’d gotten there early. They’d since fixed the metal detector and now the line to get in the courthouse was slightly backed up. Shifting his weight, he leaned against the wall and looked casually back at the entrance, making mental notes of those in line.
Hello. What have we here?
Kade’s gaze swiveled back to the spot in line where a woman stood waiting. She had the most unusual shade of hair he’d ever seen. He couldn’t see her face yet, she was a little thing, but her hair stood out in the crowd. It was the color of the sunset, golden with a hint of rose.
Without even thinking about it, Kade moved from his position by the wall, drawing closer into the crowd just to get a better glimpse of her. He was close enough to hear the security guard when he spoke to her, his voice booming out.
“Kathleen! How’s it going on this fine day?” Hank asked her.
Kathleen. Kade liked that. But he still couldn’t see her face or hear her reply to Hank. Her voice was too soft to carry.
Someone stepped in front of Kade, temporarily obscuring his view, and he had to tamp down his irritation. Moving again, he finally caught a glimpse of her face as she turned away from the metal detector.
For a moment, he couldn’t breathe. She was beautiful, her face and smile radiating youth and innocence. Even from where Kade stood, he could see she had blue eyes. Of course she did. Her skin was the color of cream and was flawless, a hint of pink in her cheeks betraying the chill in the air outside. She looked like a fairytale princess who’d just stepped from the pages of a storybook.
Kade stopped in his tracks. He’d unconsciously taken several steps toward her. What was he going to do, ask her out? Yeah, he could see how that would go:
“Um, excuse me, you don’t know me, and if you did, you’d probably run screaming the opposite direction, but can I buy you coffee or dinner, then take you to my apartment and spend the next several days in bed with you?”
As a pick-up line, it wasn’t one of his better ones.
Kade watched as she walked away down the hallway and turn a corner out of sight. It didn’t matter. He could tell without even speaking to her that she wasn’t his type, his type usually being the kind that weren’t looking for more than a quick hookup where names were optional. A step above having to pay for it, but not by much.
Kathleen looked like the kind of girl who liked flowers and slow-dancing, who’d no doubt never had a hard day in her life, or any cause to ever, ever hold a gun. She was the kind of girl you fell in love with and brought home to mom.
That caused a long-buried pang to echo through Kade and he pushed the thought aside. Christ, what was he doing? Going all gooey-eyed and maudlin just because he saw a pretty girl? Obviously, he’d gone too long without killing someone.
But no. Blane would get pissed if he killed that little snot. Not that he couldn’t make it look like an accident, but Blane would know and then Kade would have that to deal with.
Kade took another sip of coffee, then tossed the rest in a nearby trash can. As he did, he heard screams and commotion coming from down the hallway where Kathleen had gone.
He followed the crowd, moving quickly through the press of people until he was able to see what the problem was.
The girl, Kathleen, was being held hostage by a man wearing a rumpled suit and desperate expression. He held a knife to her throat.
I have to admit; I am so in love with this series. Sad that it has reached its end, but happy I have this story to always think about or re read.
The characters are amazing; they touched me from the very first book to the last. If you are into thrillers, with spicy alpha males that are also brothers, then you are in for a whirlwind! I liked this novel because it was out of the box.
Kade was a complete jerk to Kathleen at times; now reading his Point Of View you get an inside look into why he chose to be such a bad guy. But we all have to admit, when he got angry, it just made him a little sexier.
The Kathleen Turner Series has a little bit of it all. Mystery, thrilling, romance, hot sex, love triangles, anger, and this is just down right the ultimate saga that you wish would continue and continue.
This book was a great way to relive the story “Turn to Me” in another aspect. I didn’t know that I would like a “re-telling”; but I found out that I very much DO enjoy the authors telling stories from different perspectives. It gives you an inside look you would have never known of until you read it this way as well. The readers actually see more in depth at what Kade did for his brother; you see a reformed man after that.
I was touched, emotional, and happy that I was able to understand Kade and his brother more after finishing this read. I was actually shocked that this was a companion novel and was in no way the same. You learn that he is very heroic and tries so hard to resist his feelings for Kathleen.
I’m telling you guys.. you are missing out if you don’t dig your fingers into this amazing book. I am so satisfied and sad at the same time because I’ll always want more.

About the Author
I love to write and am thrilled to be a part of the Amazon Montlake family. My debut novel, NO TURNING BACK, is the first book in The Kathleen Turner Series. I write about things I love to read myself – a heroine who could be a neighbor or best friend; two men who each portray their own version of darkness and light, each vying for her affection; and a story that focuses as much on the characters as it does the suspense. NO TURNING BACK, TURN TO ME, TURNING POINT, OUT OF TURN and POINT OF NO RETURN currently comprise The Kathleen Turner Series. There is also a companion novel to NO TURNING BACK entitled TURN ON A DIME – BLANE’S TURN. TURN ON A DIME – KADE’S TURN releases August 25, 2014. My new series, The Tangled Ivy Trilogy starts with the release of IN HIS SHADOW, set to release December 16, 2014.
As for me, I’ve been reading romance novels since I was way too young to read such things, have an unhealthy obsession for all things Doctor Who, prefer Pepsi to Coke and Absolut to both, think men who drink girly cocktails are wusses, have learned to never stop believing in my beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and can recite the entire scripts of When Harry Met Sally and Apollo 13. George Washington is cool, Bon Jovi still rocks the house, and Bruce Willis is the ultimate alpha-male hero. Most of all, romance never, ever gets old.
