Chased by her criminal kingpin father, Katya Dalca runs to New Orleans and straight into the arms of Luke Hunter.

She is left with no choice except to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life alone.
Undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter thought his newest assignment—recover a stolen flash drive to gain the trust of the Russian mob—was like any other. But his target brings him to his knees, and after one taste of her intoxicating beauty, he's in too deep. Doing his job means walking away, leaving his heart behind with nothing but a promise to reunite. It's a promise he can't keep.
When Katya's past reaches out and her world unravels, her only hope is the one man she is most vulnerable to—Luke.
Luke’s Redemption is the first book by Anni Fife and it’s also the beginning of her series called King Security. I have to say that for her first book, Anni Fife as scored a homerun. This book was both full of erotic heat and intense action. The characters were multidimensional and relatable. More importantly, although it was a work of fiction, nothing about it seemed over the top.
Luke’s Redemption is the story of undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter and a criminal kingpin’s daughter named Katya Dalca. In order to retrieve a flash drive and infiltrate her father’s crew, Luke seduces Katya while she is hiding away in New Orleans. Their smoldering one night stand has life-changing consequences for both of them that plays out over the course of six years. Although Katya has no reason to trust him, Luke does everything he can to keep Katya safe and make up for his betrayal. Their connection to Katya’s father and other things cause a lot of collateral damage that gets in they way of them realizing that they are meant for each other. The drama that unfolds is mesmerizing and makes it hard to put the book down. The King Security team is impressive and add another layer to this bittersweet tale.
Everything about Luke’s Redemption was fun and exciting. Although lives were constantly in danger, it was a great adrenaline rush. I was compelled to see this through to the end. Luke and Katya had a seductive chemistry that warmed the pages. More importantly, I felt like I truly got to know them both as well as the people that they trusted. Again, for a first book, I was impressed. I look forward to reading the next book.

Last year, Anni Fife closed the door on a successful career in television, to fulfill her lifelong passion, writing. In the space of one month, she closed her business, packed up her city life and moved to a small seaside village. ‘My writing has always been constrained by client briefs,’ Anni says. ‘Now, I finally have the opportunity to write to the beat of my own heart.’ LUKE’s Redemption is Anni’s debut novel and she hopes you enjoy reading it as much as she loved writing it. Anni loves to spend hours walking on the beach searching for pansy shells, more hours drinking red wine with her gal posse, and the most hours writing steamy romance novels filled with hot alpha men and the sassy intelligent women they can’t live without. She is currently working on her second novel, GRAY’s Promise.
