If you told me while I was reading Consequences that by the end of Convicted, I'd make a place in my heart for Anthony Rawlings, I would have yelled in your face, "YOU BE CRAZY, YO." In fact, I think I said that exactly to Aleatha Romig several times while I read Consequences and Truth. After his deplorable actions of the first and through the second book, Truth, I couldn't foresee ever warming up to Tony. It seems Aleatha did the impossible: she forced my heart open and pushed her way in to plant Tony firmly in. In what I describe as a literary soap opera, the trilogy has so many mysteries, twists, turns, murders, relationships, generational vendettas, webs of lies, and tons of money. When read back-to-back—how I recommend it's read—the books are an epic storytelling. I highly recommend reading this trilogy, and when you get through to the end of Convicted, come talk to me about how much you, too, have grown to love Tony and Claire.

Publisher's Synopsis

Book #3 of the Consequences Series—

There were still lessons to learn and consequences for the truth!

When Claire Nichols met Anthony Rawlings, she didn't know they had a past, or that he had plans for her future. Over time, the role of teacher changed—games became reality—and domination turned to desire. Despite an insurmountable history, Claire and Tony found their way back to one another.
Just when they seemed to have it all—love, respect, and the promise of a family—the game master exposed the truth. Claire’s world once again spun out of control. Unwilling to allow her child to suffer the consequences of an old vendetta, Claire fled...

At one time, Claire was held captive in an opulent mansion—then her incarceration was a cell inside a state penitentiary. Was her new prison—a tropical island—truly less lonely? Perhaps that was the game master’s plan, all along?

Who will save Claire from her oldest nightmare and her newest reality? Will it be Tony? Can he forgive her for leaving him—again? Harry? Will he utilize previously unknown connections to save the woman who infiltrates his thoughts? Maybe Phil? Will his devotion in keeping Claire and her child safe be rewarded?

As the cards are played—sins of the past, innocent victims, and truths are revealed. With compartmentalization no longer an option, is the reality too much? Could there be an even worse isolation?

With the game master dealing from a stacked deck, can this new high-stakes game possibly be won?

When it’s all over and their cards are on the table—SOME will discover their bets were too high—they have nothing left to lose—ALL will learn the crucial lesson—the most important rule—with the TRUTH comes CONSEQUENCES!
