AVAILABLE NOW!! FREE in Kindle Unlimited! 

One quick glance at the blurb of Mercy is all I needed to know that I had to get my hands on it! A religious cult, a doctor/patient taboo romance, and a paranoid schizophrenic heroine? Yes, please! 

Mercy is a twenty year old that's spent most of her life as a ward of the state in a mental health facility as a result of trauma in her childhood brought on by her time in a religious cult. When her longtime doctor and the only father figure she's ever known is forced to resign, she's understandably angry and devastated. Soon after, he's replaced by a man named Sutton, and Mercy's entire life changes forever. 

Mercy is my first read from K. C. Decker, so I had no idea what to expect going into this story. That being said, I imagined with the subject matter mentioned in the blurb that this might be somewhat of a dark read overall, but it wasn't. It had a much lighter feeling than I had originally suspected, and Mercy's personality is the primary reason for that. She's very straight forward about everything, and watching her ask Sutton about things like what gives him an erection is enough to make anyone smile. 

There's definitely some emotional moments in the story too though. It's almost impossible not to feel for Mercy after everything she's been through. Her resilience and bravery are admirable, and her sense of humor through it all endeared her to me from the beginning.

If you enjoy doctor/patient romances, you should give this one a try. The relationship between Mercy and Sutton is lot fun to read. There's definitely some unethical conduct going on in this story, but I couldn't help but root for the romance anyway. That being said, Sutton's feelings came on a little too quickly for me, and the book ended a little too abruptly. I would have loved an epilogue at least, but I'm still glad I gave this book a chance. Other than those two things, I can't complain. I had a great time with this one, and I would be happy to give more of this author's work a try in the future. 

Forbidden romance fans, this one's for you!


Blurb: National Award-Winning Author KC Decker, brings readers a Sexy New, Doctor-Patient Romance.


Ironically, my name is Mercy, though my parents showed me none. If you buy the nonsense they’re selling, you’d think my very birth foretold of an evil prophesy and unleashed a wicked scourge across the land. 

While that telling is all very dramatic and compelling, it’s not the whole story. The truth is, I was almost ten years old before the religious cult began to insist I had been kissed by the devil.

Nowadays, how people perceive me is clouded by a different set of convictions and a whole new doctrine. It’s a different batch of Kool-Aid, but I still have no choice about whether to swallow it or not. Not while I’m here and labeled a Ward of the State.

I’ve worn all types of labels over the years—non-believer, pariah, deranged, orphan…it’s all in my file if you care to understand me better. But the label that seems to have implanted the deepest and garnered the most attention is the one I wear like a Scarlet Letter. It precedes me when I enter a room and is whispered about like a schoolyard crush.

Paranoid Schizophrenic.
