RIP Release Day – October 20, 2015


Pretty things aren’t meant to be broken.

But I broke her, and now we both have to pay the price.

I’m her nightmare.

I’m her savior.

And now that I have her signature on an ironclad contract, I own her body and soul.

She doesn’t remember me.

She will.

It’s inevitable.

Because as much as I know I need to stay away, for fear of unlocking the memories I helped her father bury–I can’t.

She was the apple in the Garden, dangled in front of me, her core so tempting and sweet. A voice whispered. Just. One. Bite.

I bit.

I tasted.

I fell.

Welcome to the world of the Russian mafia, where death, is your only future.

Rip on iBooks [903960]


Rachel delivers another heart-pounding, adrenaline fueled story spiced with romance!

Rip is a standalone and you will love every word of it!  It’s a spin-off from the Eagle Elite series but you can read this and not be confused on anything.  However, if you plan on reading that series and have not, there are spoilers from that series in this book.  But again – it’s a standalone and a damn good one!!

Rip is told from both Nikolai and Maya’s POVs.  Nikolai is very gifted doctor.  He has a very unique quality that the Russian mafia uses to keep people in check, if need be.  Maya is the daughter of the Russian mafia leader.  Maya is traded to Nikolai; she is contracted to work for him with quite a few demanding stipulations.

However – there is more to it than that.  As you read, there are many twist and turns in this book.  How is Nikolai affiliated with the Russian mafia.  Why and what is Maya traded for?   How is everything so intertwined?

And that is all I am giving you about the plot.  And I think I gave away more than I should have.

Rachel does a fantastic job of weaving every minute detail together.  As the story progresses, each twist is tied into the previous one and things start to make more sense.  The writing is phenomenal. You will find yourself wanting to try and figure out the answer before we are given it.  Rachel pulls in from the very beginning and keeps you glued to the pages til the end.  Oh and let’s not forget how Rachel is always able to write the most beautiful yet steamy romance scenes.  These scenes are erotic in their own way.  Just written perfectly.

I highly suggest you get your hands on this one – the book people!!  Not the model on the cover – cause well Rachel just might hurt you considering it’s her husband.  LOL

Go buy the book now!!!

RIP Teaser #2 [903953]


“You are your father’s daughter.” His lips curved into a delicious smile, “You resemble each other, not in looks, but definitely in attitude.” His gaze was unapologetic as he tilted his head and started raking his eyes from my feet up my legs until finally settling on my face. I clenched my legs together tightly and forced a smile.

“If you don’t mind, Mr. Blazik, I’d really like to get on with the interview, I know your time is precious.”

As was mine, I wanted to stress, but didn’t, just barely restraining myself and clenching my teeth to keep from giving him a much-needed verbal lashing.

“I blocked out my entire day.”

Did he want applause? “Right, well, I assure you I can be fast.”

His dark laugh had me shivering and wanting to lean forward all at once. Men that good looking shouldn’t be blessed with chuckles like that—a freaking sirens call that’s what it was.

“Amazing… You truly don’t know why you’re here, do you?”

How many times did I need to repeat myself and why was I getting the sudden impression that the guy was on some seriously hard drugs? I looked closer; didn’t pinpoint pupils mean he was high or something?

“I assure you I’m not drunk, nor high, if that’s what you’re thinking.” He chuckled again and rubbed his hands together. “Though the idea does have merit, all things considering.” A muscle clenched in his jaw.

Oh good, so he was a doctor who liked drugs and had more money than God. That should go over well for addiction problems.

I scooted back against the leather and clicked my pen for, oh, I don’t know, the tenth time. “If you aren’t going to answer my questions, I should probably go.”

“You won’t be going anywhere,” he said in a quiet voice. “And for that I’m truly sorry.” His eyes met mine, and they seemed… apologetic.

“Pardon?” Was he threatening me? Warning bells went off in my head as adrenaline shot through my system.

“Your father…” He tilted his head. “He owes me a debt… of gratitude… I asked for something irreplaceable, something that’s been owed to me for a very long time.”

My stomach sank as my heart started hammering against my chest.

“What exactly did my father give you?” I choked out, hating that I probably knew the answer, because my father was ruthless, he was a business man after all, and he never backed out of a deal. It was business over family and our business was darkness itself, horrible, something I blocked out because it made me feel better when I woke up in the morning and fell asleep at night.

“Well…” Mr. Blazik stood. “I thought that would be obvious.”  He turned his back to me and walked over to his desk then pressed a button causing blinds to creep down all the windows. When he turned, the room was already starting to blanket in darkness, making it so that his teeth practically glowed. “He gave me you.”
