Product Description

An escape plan foiled…

A determined woman…

One last tiny sliver of hope...

Jack will find me.

The Fed wants answers. And Caroline is determined not to provide them. They pull out all the stops, testing her sanity, testing her strength, testing her humanity.

Jack will find me.

Subject to cruel and merciless treatment at the hands of a government she once trusted, Caroline clings to her sole lifeline, her only chance at maintaining her tenuous hold on reality: her memories of her husband, Jack, her children, Marguerite and Sophie, and the friends who mean the world to her.

Jack will find me.

But what happens when hope starts to fade? How long until her interrogators cross over into the unspeakable sadism she fears ? How long before she finally breaks apart?

Conscience is not a standalone and must be read after the first book in The Bellator Saga, Dissident. Trigger Warning: This book contains graphic violence, and psychological and physical trauma, along with an oftentimes raw, dark, and gritty plot.

For readers 18+. Ends on a cliffhanger.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

The continuation of the Bellator Saga sees Caroline held captive by the government as they try to make her tell them what she knows. More and more desperate measures are used to try to get her to talk. Caroline is far stronger than they are.

The horror of the torture that Caroline is suffering in the present is tempered by happy memories from the past. Of Jack, their wonderful romance and marriage. Her children, friends and successful elections. But the closer the past gets to the present, the more disturbing the story becomes. Fear seeps in as we learn about how President Santos came to power and the realisation of what that means for America.

This story starts out unsettling and moves on to terrifying. Conscience really shook me up. The idea that the land of the free could taken over so easily. I haven't been able to get the story out of my mind.

Conscience is another magnificent instalment of what promises to be an epic series. We are left with a great cliff hanger which has me desperate for more. More, please Ms London

5.0 out of 5 stars Our favorite protagonists are back and stronger than ever 5 December 2015

Our favorite protagonists are back and stronger than ever. The heat was seriously turned up in this installment. Cecilia London brought Caroline and Jack to new heights. The steamy scenes are still seriously hot but the intimacy has been turned up a notch. The stakes are much higher in Conscience.

By now we know that Jack and Caroline are involved in some sort of underground movement to bring down the current administration. Caroline has been dragged to the Fed where she is being kept prisoner. She’s separated from Jack and is being tortured and abused by the guards. We have no idea what is happening to Caroline’s daughters or loved ones. Where is Jack? Did he escape? Is he a prisoner? Is he dead? The few encounters at the Fed where Caroline is reconnected with loved ones end terribly. This book was so difficult to read. The psychological and physical torture that Caroline is subjected to made me cringe and wince. My heart broke for her a million times. I kept asking myself how someone could survive what she endured. The human spirit and desire to survive is almost mythical.

A saving grace in this installment is the flashbacks. Thank god for those flashbacks! They served as a source of hope and light amidst the dark days at the Fed. We get to see Caroline’s memories and dreams of Jack, her kids, her friends, and loved ones. We get even more insight into her relationship with those closest to her. I grew to love her close confidantes and thought of them as my own. I felt the loss as she must have from the Sullivans to the Allens to Mo and Feef, and Jen and Katie, and, of course, Jack. Always Jack. These flashbacks included seriously hot scenes. I’m talking erotic and carnal and it’s warm in here!

I was zipping through these pages trying to figure out the mystery and the culmination of events that brought on these dire circumstances. You really must read this series! You’ll get to read about grown-ups with real emotions, passion, and struggles. Go give this book a 1-click! I promise you won’t regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Simply Incredible Read 19 August 2015
By Elizabeth Clinton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unfortunately Amazon only allows you to give 5 stars as a top review but there truly aren't enough stars for this book.
This is book two in Cecilia London's Bellator Saga and the mystery,intrigue, edge of your seat in tenseness come at you with a force that you will leave you feeling Amazing.
Caroline Gerard now First Lady of Pennsylvania and married to the Ultimate Man in the now Governor of Pennsylvania Jack McIntyre have seen what happens when the things in life you take for granted are taken away from you at such a force that you will do nothing to protect what you know is the truth and what you need to do for your family.
This book is told back and forth from the past to the present but the ease that it is done has you on edge of your seat with a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes but also has you cheering on Caroline and Jack throughout the story.
If you are looking for a book that will have you saying bring on the next one now this is the one you won't want to miss

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Land of Liberty in Peril 18 August 2015

Perhaps a mild spoiler to follow:

It is difficult to "really like" a book with so much pain and agony depicted in it, but London balances the horrific and gruesome suspense (present day) scenes with lighter memories in the flashbacks, many with some very sultry, sexy moments in such a way that I very much enjoyed this read. This series, which centers upon what could happen in my beloved homeland of the USA, if the fascists ever get their way, definitely trips my trigger and garners my attention. I'm exceedingly interested to read what happens next for Caroline. Please let Gabe be an angel of the Lord and able to accomplish what Maureen could not. Generally, I am one to say vengeance belongs to God, but in this fictional case I truly hope Jack gets a shot or knife at Murdock. If you aren't overly squeamish, like political suspense, and a sexy couple who can exchange foreplay banter with the best, you should invest in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chained by monsters waiting to be torn apart 5 gold stars 18 August 2015
By TheGeekInPink - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Holy Batman in Heaven! I think I prefer Joker’s sadistic sense of humor to this insanity that was Conscience. And the ride isn’t over yet. My heart literally felt like it would be ripped out of my chest, the way it was pounding. This nail-biter series is truly epic. It has heart, it has heat and it sure as hell have vicious brutality. I smiled, I swooned, I laughed, I winced, I cringed and I cried.

The story starts off where we left off in Dissident, Caroline has absolutely no idea where she is, but she remembers everything that had transpired up until the moment she woke up. Just when she is sure that this is the end, a ray of light shines down on her. But sadly the rescue attempt is foiled. She tried desperately to escape but only manages to get the crap beaten out of her.

What happens next is just as beautiful as it is horrific. Like in Dissident, Conscience is told in flashes of the past entwined with the good, old, sadistic brutality of the present. Cecilia London weaves the flashback and the present in such a way that it merges seamlessly into one fast-paced race to THE END. In the present, we sit down with Caroline as she is being dragged to interrogation. To say her captors are the evil spawns of Satan is like saying the sky is green. Complete and utter understatement. I hated the present with a passion that has never seen the light of day, until now. I knew that this book would be harder to read considering she is captured and the powers that be are going to do everything possible to get the truth out of her. But the way they went about it, these soulless so called humans, the extent they stooped to, to get the information. It was by far the hardest most gut-wrenching story ever. But I had to read on because I have been under a spell cast by the author. I am unable to not read and find out what happens. Like a junkie who craves for a fix, like a soul lost in the desert wishes for water, I yearned for the past but was equality scared of leaving Caroline behind in her present. Yes, that is how much Cecilia London makes you believe in the scenes and the characters.

The present then bleeds into the past, a sigh of relief from the pain or so it seemed. The past, oh the beauty of it made my heart flutter and clench, my palms sweat and my soul dance in the sweet magnolia smelling breeze. My heart smiled not only because the past showed me the love that binds Caroline and my current BBF, Jack together but also because it took me on a journey of learning more about Caro’s life. I got to get deeper into the woman who has an incredible zest for what she believes in, she is charming, witty and without a doubt a smart-ass sarcastic. She has a big heart and we get to see that in every way. She is a complete and utter kickass heroine. And to make the past sigh & swoon-worthy, we have Jack, the millionaire silver fox playboy ex-douche who has pledged his love to Caroline and I do believe he would absolutely sell his soul to keep her safe. The past was where her heart beat fast and sighed with content. The past was all that was keeping her sane, giving her hope that HE will come for her.

In the course of the story, I rediscovered what it means to have family and friends in a world that is full of fake and power hungry people. My heart clenched with agony at the parades of people from Caro’s life coming and going, to say it was hard to watch her suffer through the atrocities was again an understatement. At one point I had to stop, I wondered what I would do if I was in Caro’s place, how would I endure all that was being done to her. It is simply unimaginable to even consider, yet she was enduring, day in and day out. The past was gave a semblance of hope, of things that might be, again. But it was without a doubt heart-breakingly hard to read because of the sweetness and the love. When Jack was in it and he was so incredibly sweet and charming and swoony. He introduced color to the already beautiful yet lonely life that Caro had. He brought the steamy and the honey sweet back to her. The hot and steamy quotient is off the charts in this book, I don’t normally do BDSM, but the kinkiness in it is just what I wanted. It wasn’t demeaning, it wasn’t sick, it was beautifully sexy, fascinatingly kinky with a heavy dose of unadulterated love blended in. And that is one reason it was hard to let go of the past and get catapulted into the present.

By the end of the book, my heart was shred to pieces, yet the journey was not over. I had watched Caro suffer through disbelieve, rage, guilt, hope and now I had to sit and watch her lose all faith. As the darkness descends and the light leaves her eyes, will Caro wake up to freedom or more atrocities than her heart or body can endure. I leave you to wonder whether Caroline. Will Jack come for her? Or will she suffer more indignities that will leave her to rot in her dark prison surrounded by her soulless captors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall in love with Caroline and Jack - take the ride of a lifetime with them while they fight for their cause. 24 October 2015

This is the second book in this series and I couldn't put it down! I am on pins and needles waiting for the release of Book #3. I don't give spoilers in my reviews but I will say that Caroline and Jack are an amazing pair. Such fire and passion in their relationship. The story revolves around the collapse of our government in ways that are not to far off sometimes from where we could find ourselves if big changes are not made soon. Caroline is one of the strongest women that I have ever met! Jack, well he is a force to be reckoned with as well. It is refreshing to read a story with grown-up main characters that find love and have to deal with the real struggles of an adult life. Cecilia London has an amazing writing style that draws you in quickly and holds you on the edge. I would read till the wee hours of the morning, turn out the lights and then go back to read another chapter or two because I couldn't stand not knowing what happened next. I highly recommend this series to everyone!
