Beast.

That’s what they call me.

I can’t blame them.

My face half-eaten by a dog, the hideous scars make people gasp and turn away.

Except for her.  

Annika Popov. A sheltered Bratva princess who has never seen me.

I’d like to keep it that way. 

A glorified thug and interrogator, I work for her family. Doing despicable things. Luckily, my ugly face does most of my work.

Annika is off-limits. The boss’s daughter. She doesn’t know I watch her secretly. Or that I weave fantasies around her. I know I can never act on them.

When Annika’s life is threatened, her father gives me an unexpected task: take her to the lake house and protect her at all costs. 

I take my job very seriously. 

I am her elusive protector, staying in the shadows.

Until her curiosity brings her closer.

Suddenly, Annika sees the Beast.

But I’m no threat to her.

She has no idea what is hunting her.

Or that the true beast is closing in. 

And I’m all that stands between her and danger.

Tallie Brown has spent a lifetime hiding from the ghosts of someone else’s past. Raised by a paranoid woman on the run, Tallie learned from an early age how to disappear.

Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is an award-winning author with a unique point of view: to give her readers and fans thrills and kills, with a twist. Her characters are placed in danger in ingenuous ways while, at the same time, her novels are set in locales across Europe and the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and extensive time as a Cuban exile and global traveler.

The author’s writing career began circa age thirteen with a very juvenile science fiction short story; but the writing bug hit, and she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature teacher in both the university and middle school levels (and not necessarily in that order) and holds a Masters in English literature. All her novels have received different accolades, including gold, silver, and bronze medals, as well as honorary mentions from respected book award institutions.

Ms. Alonso-Sierra is currently writing full-time and loves to hear from her fans and readers. When not writing, she roams around to discover new places to set her novels.

The Kidnapping by Linda Burson – Review by Kay Stritesky

The KidnappingThe Kidnapping by Linda Burson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The book was a fun read but I was waiting for that one moment that would capture my attention and let me know I could not put the book down! The characters are well developed, and the story line is well written I just wanted more. I dont know if I was hoping for a darker story and got something lighter but I feel like this could have been a 5/5 instead of a 3/5!

The Kidnapping by Linda Burson – Review by Beverly Finnie

The KidnappingThe Kidnapping by Linda Burson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

He saved her life.
She revived his.
He also taught him what love is.
What would you do if someone dropped an envelope in front of you with $10k and instructions to be followed?
The Kidnapping was surprisingly unexpected. In a good way. I was hooked from the first chapter. It’s been a while since a book has gotten me that quickly. I didn’t want to put it down. The author takes us on a whirlwind adventure. One that just when you think it’s over, boom not quite. The way the author wrote the two main characters they are both easy to love for their own reasons. Plus the growth throughout is beautiful.
Andy and Jenna had no idea they’d cross paths, or that it would change their lives forever.
Jenna is lonely in life. Proof that money can’t buy everything. All people want her for is what she can give them, the things she could buy. And she’s just sick of it all. Ending up at a dive bar on the other side of town gives her a chance to let go and unwind.
Andy is moping through life. Having suffered great loss and numbingly starting over. Frequents the same dive bar. Fortunately for him, one day a lady gave him an envelope with $10k and instructions on who and how to kidnap someone. That someone being Jenna. So what does he do? He decides to meet her and tell her.
Instant connection, instant chemistry that they both choose to ignore. Though Jenna’s plan could throw a wrench in that. She wants to stay with Andy, and figures it’s the best way to keep her safe. That is till they figure out what to do about the letter. There’s strong connections that her ex-fiance Steve has his hands all over this mess.
So come join us, for an unexpected rollercoaster, lots of romance, lots of awkward holding back. While these two navigate their new situation.
Do they figure it out?
Does Andy keep Jenna safe?
A book that was a lot lighter than I expected, will keep one interested for hours. Check it out!

The KidnappingThe Kidnapping by Linda Burson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Linda Burson is a new-to-me author but not for long as I will be looking for more of her books. I love her writing style!

Jenna has recently left her fiancé Steve. All he wanted was her money but she wanted so much more. Jenna starts scoping out new hangouts and finds a bar where no one really knows who she is or how much money she has. She’s sworn off men but then Andy walks in the bar. Andy’s minding his own business but finds Jenna to be an interesting and slightly attractive woman. Jenna reciprocates the feelings. It’s when Andy is handed an envelope that things start to change for these two strangers. Inside the envelope is a note with a significant amount of cash. Andy has to make a decision as to what to do with this envelope and the knowledge that he now has.

This is the where they mystery begins. I’ll not ruin anything but the reader will be in for a pretty wild ride with these two and this envelope.

The KidnappingThe Kidnapping by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a sweet romance. Jenna Ladson is a wealthy woman who has learned that most people are only interested in her for her money. She breaks up with her fiance Steven after he cheats on her. Even so, she can hardly believe that he would set up a fake kidnapping. Thankfully, Andy Porter accidentally intercepted the instructions for her kidnapper. Andy has his own struggles. As they get to know each other, they fall in love. I enjoyed the resolution of the kidnapping with the action at the end of the book. It was a sweet story and a pleasant read.

The KidnappingThe Kidnapping by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Kidnapping is a suspenseful book by Linda Burson. What happens when you are so wealthy that you do not know whom you can trust? Jenna meets Andy under unusual circumstances and quickly learns whom she can trust or can’t. The story is a romantic suspense that has a few unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed watching how Jenna and Andy learn to trust one another. Their tension gets a bit intense but then turns into something entirely different. The story is well thought out and focuses on several characters. I will not give clues about the plot because I don’t want to wreck the story for anyone. If you like romance and suspense pick up this book. I look forward to reading more from this author soon.
