A five star beginning takes you to the depths of hell and depravity and leaves you wondering. Assassin Christopher Argent's childhood was hell...and he survives--emotionally scarred, with a code that makes sense, and with a cold logic that denies love.
Millicent LeCour hides a secret that can be torn from her in seconds--if she lets it.
Morley has put together the fact that women are being horrendously murdered, their bodies carved up and their children are missing.
Christopher Argent takes on a job from a mysterious source--his target is Millie. Only something unforeseen occurs and Argent is left reeling from--well, he's not sure what!
And the great assassin does something he's never done before--for the price of one night with Millie.
That price might be too high because Christopher is touched deeply in places he refuses to acknowledge until it's too late.
The twists and turns are multiple and slam up against each other, racing ahead and dragging you on. Exciting, stark and totally enthralling.
I loved this. Powerful, passionate, dark and redemptive!
