She saw in him what no one else could see. 

He found in her what he could never find.

One moment changed everything but, even with a break in time, their connection could never be severed.

In the beginning he may have been her salvation, but in the end she will be his redemption.


This is Book One in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It’s told in dual POV, has an HEA with no cliffhanger and it can be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend that you read the Men Of Honor series prior, as characters play recurring roles in both series.

Warning: Due to mature subject matter, such as explicit sexual situations and coarse language, this story is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.


5 redeeming stars by Natasha Gentile

What can I say about KC Lynn, well for one she’s Canadian eh? , for two she knows how to write a story and three she knows how to write about her Navy Seals.  I fell in love with her writing with Fighting Temptation and I jumped on the roller coaster ride never being let down.

We all fell in love with Anna in Fighting Temptation.  She is Jaxson little sister, though not by blood. They went through something no one would ever survive, but they did and it made them intertwined with each other forever.  It also created a bond that could never ever be severed.

Now it’s time for Anna to have her happily ever after.  I mean she deserves it.  It might make it hard for Jaxson to see that not only is she grown up she has grown up to be a beautiful woman inside and out.  Of course many boys noticed her but Logan also noticed her. Sigh oh Logan.  How I love thee.

In the beginning he was my salvation, but in the end I was his redemption.
This is our story.

Logan isn’t from the right side of the tracks.  He has nothing going for him, except he knows hard work, he knows how to survive, he knows how to love but most of all he knows how to protect the ones he loves.

Anna could care less about where he came from.  She followed her heart, she followed everything that Jaxson told her to do and it lead her to Logan each and every time

Keeping on arm wrapped tightly around my back, he reaches up and cups my cheek.  “I’d do anything for you, Anna.  I may bot be able to give you much, but I’ll give you everything I have.”

Just like that you lose yourself to the powers of Logan, to his words, to his promises, to be his everything.

“What are you smiling about? He asks, quirking his lips.
I wrap my arms around his neck bringing myself closer to him. “Because you make me happy,”  I tell him truthfully and brush my lips across his.

They thought their love would never end.  They thought they had it all.  With one mistake it gets taken away from them.  It gets ripped out of their hands.  Their future that they dreamt about erased leaving them both alone.

That day I left broken, my mended heart shattered once again, but this time I knew it wouldn’t be repaired-not without Logan.

And just like that not only is her heart shattered so is yours.  You are sitting there thinking how this could happen.  How can one girl withstand so much?  When is it enough?  You know that she will go on because she is a survivor, but she is half the person she should be because the other half is out there somewhere only she can’t have him.  He won’t let her.

Logan is one proud man.  He will take help from no one.  He will do what he needs to do to be true to himself and never owe anyone.   Nothing can make the pain of pushing the one thing he thought he could never find.  Love.  Anna.  Two words can bring him back.

“A proposition?”

Now he’s back in town.  Back to the place half of his heart lives at, only he won’t tell her he’s back.  He wants, actually he doesn’t know what he wants at this point.  He wants it all, but having it in your hands and then ripped away makes you scared to believe that you can have it. That you of all people deserve it all.

No words are spoken as we stare at one another, our chests heaving together as one.  The air around us becoming so thick it’s stifling.  It’s as if we are in our own universe, one I remembered all to well.

No one knows the inner demons that haunt Logan.  No one knows how inside he is a shell.  He is broken.  The only one that could heal him is not an option.  At least not in his reality.

I only broke down once and came to see her.  I parked a fair distance away to avoid being seen, and ended up waiting for almost an hour.  I was about to give up when I finally spotted her walking with her friend across campus, and I swear my heat stopped f*cking beating.  She was everything I remembered her to be-beautiful, vibrant and perfect.  She laughed at something her friend had said, and even from where I stood I could hear it.  The long, but not forgotten, sound washed over me and brought physical pain.  I ached so f*cking bad to go to her, to touch her, to pull her against me and never let her go.
He has made a deal with the devil or as some would call them the FEDS.  The one thing that has him going is the Jaxson, Sawyer and Cade are in his corner.  These freaking guys refuse to allow anyone they know to fail.  Failure is not an option. 

He’s fighting his past, he is fighting for his future, but most of all he is tired of fighting his feeling for Anna. He is tired of pushing her away, tired of fighting that ghost.

“Just who the hell do you think you are?  You have no right to act like this.  We are over!  We have been over for years and-”
“Like hell we are,” he growls
Those are the last words spoken just before his mouth claims mine with a possession that steals my breath.  I gasp at the unexpected act, and he uses it to his advantage by thrusting his tongue past my lips.  A whimper escapes me the moments his familiar taste, the one I’ve never forgotten, floods my mouth and rocks me to my core.

Logan you sly bastard.  Just when I wanted to kick you in the nuts for hurting her and making her suffer watching you day in day out, you come in and steal away my breath and my heart.  You fight for your girl, for the woman she has become, for the wife you want her to be. 

And just like that you steal our hearts.  You make up sigh with love, you make us fan ourselves with your dirty dirty mouth and what you do with that mouth makes our toes curl up.  You make up believe that everything in this world is worth the fight. 

That when you fight for your redemption, hoping that even if you can’t give her everything, you can give her you and that is something you can’t buy.

A laugh spills out of her just before she grabs my face and lays one hot f*cking kiss on my lips.  I thread my fingers through her hair and crush her mouth harder against mine.  Inhaling everything she has to give me, her warm tears mixing with our flavors.  “I love you so much,” she whispers into the kiss. 
“I love you too.  I swear, Anna, I’ll take care of you.  You’ll never know what it’s like to hurt.”
“As long as I have you by my side I can survive anything.  I just need you”

 And just like that she nails it yet again.  This book rocked my freaking world.  It had my heartbreaking, it had my heart palpitating, it had me fanning my self, it had me holding my breath but it had me realize that love is the only thing worth fighting for.  With love you can do pretty much anything you set your mind out to do. 

KC makes you fall in love with the characters hook line and sinker.  It is really hard for you to think you have a favourite character because once you start reading you sit there saying, yup now he’s my favourite.  Which makes you see KC knows what she is doing and I can’t wait to see what other stories that she comes up with.  You know I’ll be there every step of the way.

Emily Michaels ~ Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? Like you never fit in, or you weren’t good enough? This is how I have felt for as long as I can remember. I see the world differently than everyone else, I feel everything differently and I reflect on life differently. And being different in my world is not a good thing. I live in a place that’s divided between the rich and the poor, the beautiful and the unbeautiful, the prestigious and the mediocre. I have always belonged in the first category, because my father was the Governor of Georgia.

Growing up around people I could never relate with, my life had always been lonely, that was until my senior year when I met the one boy who would change my life forever. A boy who my parents would never approve of because he didn’t come from money or the same social class. He rode a motorcycle, had tattoos and was considered to be from the wrong side of the tracks. Yet he was still envied by many.

Ryder Jameson was someone who every guy feared, and one who every girl wanted to be touched by. He didn’t do attachments, or have friends… until me. And for the first time in my life I finally felt like I belonged. When I was with him, my different didn’t feel wrong or ugly. He made me feel beautiful- insightfully beautiful. Then one day my world came crashing down on me, and it would be six years before I'd once again see the boy I fell in love with.

Ryder Jameson ~ After working my ass off I am given the opportunity of a lifetime, and if I pull it off I will be the youngest FBI agent to run one of the biggest undercover operations in history. Only the case that gets thrown in front of me leads me back to the one place I swore I would never return to, and to the only girl who’s ever mattered to me.

Except Emily Michaels is not the same girl I left behind. She still looks the same, she’s still beautiful inside and out, but there’s one thing that’s very different about her, one very big thing, and it’s something I didn’t think was possible.

Ryder and I come from a world where politics separates us and wealth defines us, but even after all this time we will not let it divide us. Here is our story.

This is a standalone novel with an HEA and is told in dual POV. Due to mature subject mature, such a explicit sexual situations and coarse language, this story is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
