On the twenty-third day—he hunts, bringing the scum of the earth to justice; his justice. Ending up as a patient on Dr. O’Reilly’s table could either save your life or end it in the most horrific way. 


New York City. The infamous city that never sleeps; the place where dreams either shine brightly or shatter into razor sharp pieces of metal. For Dr. Cian O’Reilly, it’s the perfect city to disguise his dark alter ego. As a top surgeon at Lincoln Hospital, he has access to resources far beyond the reach of the average person; the ideal cover for his double life. By day, he’s the epitome of professionalism. By night, the facade is stripped away and his true depraved self is revealed. 


When Dr. Athena Payne joins the roster as a new surgical intern, Cian’s carefully constructed life is thrown into turmoil. With her sunny smile and wide-eyed innocence, she threatens to break through his iron-like exterior, exposing the man beneath. Following her dream of becoming a cardiovascular surgeon, her internship at Lincoln Hospital is the first step in achieving her goals. Something about the dark air of mystery that surrounds her new boss, Dr. Cian O’Reilly, leaves Athena questioning just what it is that the good doctor is hiding. 


A killer on the loose. A doctor wielding a deadly blade. An intern caught in the midst of first love and a lethal web of murder.


Lincoln Hospital. Where the cure can be your worst nightmare.


Warning: Contains violence and graphic situations not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen. This is the first book in a series and ends on a cliffhanger. All books must be read in order to follow the series. 

The author did an amazing job of telling this story in the third person so the reader can get so much more out of the story. There are so many characters that this series can build from and I'm excited for more. This was my first Cassia Brightmore book and it has made me a new fan of her work. Oh, and the epilogue? I can normally figure out all the puzzle pieces early on in a story...I soooo did not see that coming. It's a shocker and will leave you excited for more. - Naughty Moms Story Time


Have you ever been so scared yet so ecstatic at the same time while reading a book? Well that is exactly how I felt when I read Lincoln Hospital. Ms.Brightmore takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride of a story and makes you unsure with every turn of the page. I had no clue what was going to happen next and it thrilled me but chilled me to the bone in exact same instant.- Theory of a Dreamer Book Blog






Within the walls of the prestigious Lincoln Hospital in New York City, a hunter awaits. A man with a thirst for blood and an appetite for vengeance. Dr. Cian O’Reilly, the city’s most respected cardiovascular surgeon, is living a double life, one bathed in torture and mayhem as he delivers final justice to the city’s most heinous criminals. 


When a new influx of physicians joins the rotation, the struggle for anonymity intensifies as a nosy reporter inches closer to the truth about Cian’s true identity. In a dangerous game of kill or be killed, no one is safe and everyone is a potential victim. 


A romance blossoming on the premise of murder. An escaped killer on the loose. A traitor in the midst intent on bringing them all down.

Waiting for this next book is like I am strapped to the gurney in OR-B with Reynolds at the head of the bed!!! So horrible, I need it! I love this Author's mind set for this book, it's the right mix of sexy, dark, funny and yet suspenseful. She does an excellent job of making the characters a part of your life, like I literally feel like I work with these people at the hospital. Very well written book!!- Books Addicts Reviews


Every book of Cassia's I have read. And, like all the previous ones before this I finished between 3-5am. I finished them and everyone I sat straight up yelling "OMG! WTF! SERIOUSLY?!" This was no different. Except by the middle of the second to last chapter my heart was racing and I was hot. The last 3-5 sentences I was legit yelling!! I want inside of Cassia's mind even just for a few minutes. She's legit my favorite dark romance author. She blindsides me every book. You'd think I'd be ready for it. Nope! She gets me every time LOL. Cassia is that good. I can't wait for her next book.- Mommy's Late Night Bookup


Trust. No. One.

A mantra that Dr. Cian O’Reilly has lived by; never allowing any new insiders to pierce his inner circle. Until her. Dr. Athena Payne was his game changer, the woman he wanted to bring into his cloak of darkness; to share in his malicious desires of torture and terror as the executioner of all who escaped justice. But when faced with an alleged betrayal of that trust, how far will he go to seek his vengeance?


Love. Conquers. All.


Three words that Athena Payne has always believed whole-heartedly. In her determination to become a brilliant heart surgeon, her thirst for knowledge tossed her headlong into a hidden conspiracy, a deadly game of death intertwined with the complications of love. Trusting and loving Cian may very well be the last things she ever does as she’s faced with paying the ultimate price for allowing him into her heart.


Save a life. Take a life.


Will the hardest kill Cian’s ever faced be his last? As others circle closer to learning his true identity, interns and attendings alike face the possibility of losing everything they’ve fought so hard to gain.


Trust no one. Let love conquer all. And prepare for a shocking ending that you won’t see coming in this third installment of the Trauma Series.


Lincoln Hospital, where the cure can be your worst nightmare.


Warning: Contains violent and graphic situations not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen. This is the third book in the "Dexter" meets "Grey's Anatomy" series and ends on a cliffhanger. All books must be read in order to follow the series.

I have been dying for this book after the cliffhanger in the last one. I honestly never dreamed this one would take the turns it did. Cassia is definitely the queen of mindf#ck when it comes to books. 
This series just keeps getting better. You never see the twists coming. 
I have to say this is one of the darkest, sickest most twisted series I have read and I love it!! Can't get enough of Cian the psycho vigilante surgeon and his medical staff.- Goodreads Reviewer


This series is like wine, just keeps getting better and better! Cassia, you my dear, are one heck of a suspense writer!- Dirty South Books


Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

Irrelevant. Insignificant. Inconsequential.


Three pointed words designed to break down a person’s self-confidence. To strip away any sense of worth until all that’s left is a shell of the person they wish to be. Sometimes, courage comes in the form of enduring endless pain and suffering; sometimes, bravery can blind you from the truth.


What would you do if you were trapped? Unable to break free of the bindings of shame and rejection? For Maisie Pierce, finding herself in a world that has done nothing but betray her has proved almost impossible. 


Until him.


Ridge Buchanan doesn’t have time for love or any kind of a committed relationship. With putting everything he has into making his private security business a success, finding a woman is the last thing he wants or needs.


Until her.


Two broken souls not searching for each other. A lost woman desperate to escape the constraints of her past. A bitter man resigned to living a life of empty one-night stands and meaningless connections. A volatile, dark cloud looming over both of them. 


When faced with a chance at happiness after a life filled with disappointments, can they be the beacon of hope each other needs? Or are they destined to forever live a life of misery and regret?


Warning: Contains graphic and violent situations that may cause triggers. Recommended for readers 18 or older.

Cassia Brightmore had me hooked from the very beginning with this book, and I read the whole thing without putting it down. Maisie as a little girl broke my heart. Maisie as an adult made me want to slay her demons, and then kick her booty for feeling the way she did about herself. Loved the book, loved all of the characters, except the boyfriend. I don't think anyone can love him. That ending though...haha, okay, I loved it too! Great read! - Author Dawn Sullivan

Warning: Unworthy will break you. It will rip you apart and put your back together again and just when you think all is well, don't get too comfortable.
This was my first read by Cassia Brightmore and I think I have found a new favourite. Brilliant, gut-wrenching and amazing. - Goodreads Reviewer

Book Splash Horror Story, The - Cassia B


Vacationing with a splash of blood…


Rennie Laval was about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. A virgin cruiser, what better way to pop her cherry than onboard the luxurious Norwegian. Set to sail to the sunny Caribbean on a week long vacation, her only expectation was to soak up the warm sun, and spectacular sights, all while consuming frothy umbrella drinks.


Travelling solo didn’t faze her, not when she would be a part of a group of cruisers, known fondly as “Book Splashers.” A unique author signing event at sea, getting the chance to attend was a dream come true for an avid reader like Rennie. The large group of more than three hundred authors, readers, photographers, models had welcomed her with open arms. The hosts, Harper Sloan and Felicia Lynn, reassuring her she’d never be left on her own.


Duke Kincaid was fed up with life. After catching his fiancee in bed with his best friend, he spontaneously booked himself on a cruise, needing to get away from their betrayal. A Caribbean vacation was just the escape he needed. Colliding with another solo traveller, a raven-haired beauty, seemed like fate. A little fling on the open waters would definitely go a long way to wiping out unwanted memories.


While he and Rennie grow closer on and off board the ship, they’re both flung headfirst into a nightmare when members of the Book Splash start showing up dead. The first tragic death seemed like an accident, but when the body count rises higher than imaginable, and the deaths become more gruesome, it’s clear that a sinister force is stalking the ship, focused on the members of their group.

Once death has you in its sights, there is no escape.

A sinister criminal ring has descended on the small town of Norton Springs, instilling fear in the residents. A vicious wave of disappearances coupled with the gut-wrenching horror of infants being ripped from the arms of their helpless mothers has the town quaking in terror.

The past and present collide in the final book of the Darkness Series. Old enemies return and unlikely allies are formed when a serial arsonist targets the small town of Stockton Crossing, Louisiana.

With the chaos closing in around them, will they solve the puzzle before it’s too late? Or is their destiny to go down in a fiery blaze?

Obsession is a passionate emotion. A dark blend of desire and longing; it distorts reality into twisted fantasies. How far would you go to ensure the object of your infatuation is forever in your possession?
