Somehow she discovered that WE was not the ...more

Dane is amazeballs. How protective he is of his daughter and sister wow. And when Marnie comes into the picture and he just brings her into his world and trusts her implicitly is wonderful.
I felt for Marnie. She thought she was going legit and finds out that the company she works for has been bad and duping her so wrong. I loved her strength and desire to right the wrongs.
The story that unfolds and the secrets that are revealed have you reeling. Poor Dane ...more
Betrayed by a Kiss is my first time reading Kris Rafferty and I have to say that the aura of mystery and non stop action is very good. The book will have you turning pages just to find out what happens next.

A great paced romantic/suspense book that captivated from the start.
Marnie Somerville is a fantastic heroine with smarts that just compelled me to keep reading.
Detective Dane MacLain was another character with intelligence to go along with his sexy demeanor.
Over all I enjoyed the story and the writing style. I would definitely keep this author on my reading list.
Marnie was too closed off for me...I wanted her to open up at some point to Dane. She mentioned her mother once in passing but otherwise he knew nothing about her past. He opened his heart to her yet I didn't feel as if she ever did the same.

This is a book that you will be unable to put down!
It starts out with our leading lady, Marnie, in the middle of a chase, and even the very first sentence catches your attention (Kris Rafferty certainly has a way with words!). She is a badass tech girl that is rough around the edges, and yet you still can't help but identify with her character and the situations that she has survived. As the story progresses, we meet Dane McLain, a single-dad, ex-cop, blue-eyed hottie who ha ...more
OMG – I don’t think that I have been hooked by a book as quickly as I was with this one. I couldn’t read it fast enough there were so many unexpected twists I just wanted more and more. I love books that keep me guessing until the very end and that’s definitely what happened with this one.

Great story, but there are some disconnect with the characters' actions, reactions and dialogues sometimes that I nearly stopped reading. I'm glad that I didn't, though, because it was a good read. The writing could be better, though. I know the author could only get better, and I can't wait to read more of this author.
Her book held my interest until the last page. It was one of those books you don't want to put down and if you have to, you can't wait to pick up again. The main characters were very strong and likable. Can't wait for the next book. Sent for the paperback to keep in my library.
