Sci-Fi / Romance
Released: March 2012
Rikki is an assassin who prefers to work alone. She's never understood the need to belong to a group, and has vowed to never join the Assassin's Guild. So when by the books Misha shows up to try and pursuade her otherwise, she's a bit miffed. Although with a body like his, it's hard to stay mad at him for long.
Misha is determined to bring Rikki into the Assassin's Guild. She's too much of a wild cannon to be allowed out unsupervised, and since she's laid the blame for more than one of her jobs at his feet, he's taking it personally. He just never expected her sweet curves could sway him from his mission.
When things explode both in the bedroom and out, will these two assassins on opposite teams be able to put aside their differences to stay alive, or will pride be the downfall to both of them?
I have a thing for assassins. Don't know why, either, but I do. This story was not only assassins, but space assassins, so it was a double bonus for me. I enjoyed the banter between Misha and Rikki, and the sex scenes weren't too bad, either. It was fun to watch them figure out that sometimes being the lone gunman isn't all it's cracked up to be, and golly gee, maybe having someone to watch your back isn't a bad thing after all. It was a quick, fun read, and anyone who has a strange obsession with assassins like I do should definitely give this book a try. Hoping there will be a second one, too.
