"When you blame me for this, just know I would never have treated you so given the choice." Sergei reached for her leg, and she kicked at him. "Don't make me tie your ankles, too, Katja."
Her heart pounded hard in her chest. She had to have her feet free or there was no chance of her ever getting away. Sergei fished his switchblade out of his pocket, and her muscles tightened. He flicked the knife open, climbed onto the bed, straddled her hips, and sliced the sweater from her body.
She lay there tied to the bed in her black bra. She'd gotten her breath back, but couldn't draw air to save her life. His fingers grabbed a shoulder strap and sliced through it and the other, then he carefully slid the knife between the valley of her breasts and cut through the middle of her bra, baring her breasts. They received a courtesy glance as though he couldn't help himself, but it was the bra itself he was focused on. She squirmed underneath him and he squatted farther on his haunches, anchoring her lower body to the mattress.
He turned the modified bra over in his hands, his fingers searching and finding the other kerambit she'd hidden in place of the underwire. He arched a brow at her. "Ingenious. I don't believe this is standard issue."

"What's better than an action-packed spy-double agent-assassin novel with a bearded Russian assassin lumberjack hottie in Alaska and bad-ass double-jointed heroine who knows her way around a knife? Finding out this is a series! A SERIES!
*Penny wipes away a tear of happiness* Grade: A" ~ Goodreads Reviewer
"While on assignment in Afghanistan, our heroine, Kate Mercer is a spy who is seduced and bandoned by Sergei Lavinsky, aka the Bear, a hot Russian who makes James Bond look like a choir boy. The attraction that Kate and Sergei feel towards each other is not only sexual, but emotional as well, and very well written. The dialog was witty and sexy, the action moved along nicely and the mystery of Sergei's seemingly cruel and unforgivable behavior is satisfactorily explained.
I enjoyed the story so much, I re-read it immediately, savoring every word again. I look forward to more of Tiffinie Helmer's work." ~Amazon Reviewer
"Tiffinie always portrays her characters with depth - and feeling, I enjoy being able to read a story where I know how the characters are feeling. See the surroundings, and with such vivid details Tiffinie delivers the readers great insight in the story being told. At times it was like watching James bond in his 007 movies!"~Amazon Reviewer
