A woman with nothing to lose. A man who knows too much. A secret that could destroy them all.
Rose Hancock is no stranger to danger, fear, or pain. Her whole life has been shaped by the purists--a shadowy splinter group within America’s most powerful secret society. When the leader of the Trinity Masters has her partner-in-crime shot, Rose has nothing left to live for except revenge.
Before she can take her revenge, she’s kidnapped and wakes up to find herself in England, with the man who only days before she was sure was dead.
When a kidnapping and ransom specialist, sent by the Grand Master, shows up to “rescue” Rose, she’ll have to decide if she wants to keep running or stand and fight against the purists.
But there are more secrets to be uncovered, and some of those secrets could mean the end of the Trinity Masters... because the Masters’ Admiralty is larger and more powerful. And some betrayals cannot be forgiven.

**Received ARC for a fair and honest review**
Beloved Sacrifice is the 9th book in the Trinity Masters series. Though I think this is supposed to be a standalone, I've read most of the series and am behind two books and was lost in this book. Rose is a Trinity Legacy, her mother died when she was a child, the other two parents in their trinity wanted nothing to do with her, and she ended up living with the Anderson's who continuously abused her starting at age 16. Wes was her childhood crush/love, even though he was 4 years older then her. When he died at 17 she was devastated and never really got over him. Marek is sent to go retrieve Rose from the kidnappers and ends up involved with Rose and Wes.
So this book is definitely not for sensitive readers. I've read a lot of dark romance, and this book bothered me. The first 35% of the book is Rose being kidnapped and abused and they go into details multiple times with her story. Very disturbing. After the first part the story, it started picking up and started getting better, then the book just ends. There is an epilogue that has mostly nothing to do with the trinity, and I finished feeling like what the heck. There is a minimal amount of closure with one part of the story, being vague to avoid spoilers here, but with the trinity itself and other aspects that are brought up there is a lot left open. There characters themselves at first were a struggle, but after about 35-40% of the way through the book started growing on me, and at the end I did like them, but it took a long while to really get into the characters. This is the first book in the series that I read that I just really didn't really care for. It saddens me to write this review, because I've loved the books in the series that I've read so far, and this one just let me down. Hope this helps. Happy Reading!!!
Just keeps getting better!!!
This is book 9 in the Trinity Masters series and it features Rose, Weston, and Marek. WOW! This series just keeps getting better and better. The plot twists, nonstop action and answered questions are all over the place in this last book of the series. The action was so intense at times I was holding my breath waiting to see what was going to happen. This entire series needs to be read in order to completely understand the tangled web of Purists, American Trinity Masters and European Masters' Admiralty.
You can pick up the story in the spin off series, Masters' Admiralty. I can't wait!!!
I was a little worried about reading book 9 in a series that I haven't read at all but, while I think I would have understood what was going on faster if I had at least read books 6-8, I didn't really feel lost. That being said, I wouldn't read this as a standalone if I had a do-over.
Rose has been through a tremendous amount of bad things in her life. Every new thing that she revealed made my heart break for her just a little bit more. Both times Rose was "kidnapped" in this book and her dry humor about it made me laugh out loud. The men in this story are strong protectors, each in their own way, and the trio complement each other so perfectly. There is a ton of suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, not putting the book down until I knew what was going to happen. I'm definitely adding this series to my TBR.
