“This is without a doubt one of the most intriguing and scariest psychological thrillers I've ever read. I had to come up for air every once in a while just from the sheer intensity of this book! This book is a guaranteed must read. I have always been a big fan of Tina Wainscott's [Rush's] and this book is one of the reasons why!” -- Kathy Boswell,

“Unforgivable is Wainscott’s [Rush's] venture into contemporary romantic suspense, and she takes readers on a compelling, unforgettable journey into the darker side of love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My goal as a writer is to create books that make people feel good. My characters come with baggage, pasts hurts, and vulnerabilities. They go through hell, find love, and at the end, find peace in who they are and everything they've gone through. And isn't that what we all want?

About the Author

Tina Wainscott has always loved the combination of suspenseful chills and romantic thrills. Her new series is about five Navy SEALs who take the fall for a covert mission gone wrong and join The Justiss Alliance, a private agency that exacts justice outside the law.
As Jaime Rush, she is the author of the Hidden series, featuring humans with the essence of dragons, angels, and magic, and the award-winning Offspring series, about psychic abilities and government conspiracies. Altogether she has published twenty-eight novels and five novellas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Romantic Suspense December 20, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Romantic suspense is at its very best with this latest read from Ms. Wainscott. Wrapped up in one terrific package is a rampant serial killer, a controlling husband, a beaten-down wife, and a handsome mysterious loner all connected in this intricate and suspenseful plot.
With the reappearance of "Spooky Silas" Koole, Katie is reminded of the girl she used to be before she married local vet and her savior, Ben Ferguson. After her mother died, Katie lived with another family and was befriended by Ben who had aided her when Gary, the bully, injured her kitten. Now, after nine years of marriage, Katie is but a shell of her former self, complacent and pleasing, no longer the spirited girl Silas remembered.
Even as Silas warns Katie to trust no one, the serial killer strikes again, leaving no body, and Silas is the main suspect. And fear strikes Katie, as the list of possible suspects cleverly emerges: Is it Gary, the kitten abuser and gruff cop, Harold, the creepy "art" dealer, Silas, who empathetically feels the killer, or Ben, the town hero and control freak husband?
As love emerges between loner Silas and a damaged Katie, it becomes so much more than just romance, mainly a culmination of life-long love deepening into mature adult love. As they begin to trust one another, Katie is forced to question her marriage, her mother's death years before, and her life, as she has known it for the last nine years.
Ms. Wainscott's latest is a masterpiece of mystery, chock full of suspense, and brimming with romantic attraction. Readers unfamiliar with this rising star's work will definitely want to check out this latest suspenseful novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secrets and shadows -- Very highly recommended October 28, 2001
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A man filled with secrets and shadows, "Spooky" Silas Koole has watched Katie Malloy from a distance for years. Ever since the day she trusted him enough to ask for help, Silas has kept tabs even as she married another man and established a quiet life in the backwoods with her veterinarian husband Ben. When the townsfolk realize that there's a serial killer in their midst, they immediately assume that Silas must be guilty. After all, an illegal search links him to many of the killings, and produced graphic pictures and text that indicate his guilt. Worse, his supernatural ability to empathetically connect to the illusive killer has him doubting his own innocence.
Ben has loved being Katie's hero from the day when she was nine and brought in a damaged kitten until now. When her mother died in a shocking suicide, he'd found the child a place to live and waited for her to grow into womanhood. He married her at eighteen, loving the innocence of the woman-child. At twenty-seven, she finds herself as dependant upon Ben as she had been as a child. But she feels terribly guilty for not being the woman he needs. Especially when Silas can stir womanly needs Katie has never acknowledge, and seems to know about her than she knows about herself.
Author Tina Wainscott exchanges her usual romance for an over the top suspense novel that will keep the reader avidly turning the pages. Rich characterization and a fluid plot result in a memorable tale of love and murder. Indeed, UNFORGIVABLE delivers a graphic, insightful look at the thin line that separates the good from the evil that lurks within all of us. The truly disturbing context and careful manipulation of people and events gives the reader an unexpected and frightening look from behind the eyes of a killer whose actions are unforgivable. Wainscott's prose reflects an empathy for each of her memorable characters that makes UNFORGIVABLE a must read! Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense, Murder, and Paranoia January 14, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Unforgivable is a fun read that is hard to put down. I bought it because Tina Wainscott was featured in a Naples magazine and I was headed to Naples for a weekend at my condo on Gulf Shore. She was a new author to me, and I will go back and look for more of her books.
Kattie grows up thinking that her mother killed herself when she was 26. She is now 26 herself and has matured into a timid woman who thinks she is unattractive and unliked by the people in her town. These impressions have been fostered on her by her all too doting husband. A couple of local girls disappear and it is feared that a serial killer is on the loose. None of the people that Kattie's husband will "allow" her to associate with make her feel safe. Along comes the boy from her childhood who is now a man who can still make her feel safe and protected even though the townpeople suspect him of being the killer. Together they solve the mystery. Buy the book !

5.0 out of 5 stars What a breathless suspense! October 23, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From the first page of this book to the last ~~ it's totally riveting and you cannot put your book down at all!

Katie thought the terror of her life started and ended with the suicide of her mother. She was wrong. After a placid life for 20 years, evil is stalking her again and this time, it has a face she knows very well. Is it Gary, the police officer who tortured her kitty when she was a kid? Is it her husband of 9 years, Ben, the respected vet or is it Silas, who returned after years of living in Atlanta?

Girls begin to disappear in the neighboring towns. And everyone's in an uproar ~~ Katie begins to find her strength again just when she needed it!

This is an incredibly suspenseful novel ~~ I really enjoyed reading it. It's a definite page-turner ~~ and will keep you up at night for awhile! And it will keep you looking over your shoulders as well!
