I was truly anticipating Emilie and Chain’s story, as we have gotten sneak peeks of these characters from the previous books in this series, and Kat Mizera did not disappoint!
Emilie is a lost soul. Recently divorced from her childhood friend, Emilie is being tormented by guilt from an event in her past. Deciding she finally must face the truth and consequences of her actions she flees from her home in Vegas to seek answers. The only thing currently helping to keep her from herself completely to her guilt is seeking out the pain and humiliation of unhealthy BDSM acts that cause her to focus on something else for a brief time.
Darryl “Chains” Carruthers is also running from his past. A former operative for MI6, Chains has cut himself off from friends and family in the hopes that they cannot be used against him should a past mission come back to haunt him. When friends ask him to find Emilie and bring her home, however, Chains agrees and soon finds himself more invested in the lovely Emilie than he ever thought was possible.
Kat Mizera wrote a beautiful story about two people afraid to build a future because of events in their past. While they had been co-workers in Vegas, neither truly saw the other as more than someone they worked with. Once placed in different circumstances, however, their chemistry explodes. Emilie makes Chains yearn for a future he never imagined, and Chains is the rock that can ground Emilie in ways that no one else has ever been able to do.
Of course, love is never easy, and the past never truly stays in the past. Redemption’s Inferno is a fast-based plot that has multiple unexpected twists and turns. It was great to catch up with Dante /Becca and Viggo/Jamie from books one and two. I love how their lives are intertwined and each book in the series feels like a natural progression in the story arc. As with all books in the series, Kat Mizera also tackles societal norms and expectations in beautiful ways. Jamie and Viggo fans will love the twist in this book that forever twines these couples together.

About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
