Doris O’Connor is best known for her hot, romantic, HEA’s with a nice dose of kink thrown in. This is not one of those books. Yes, the very hot, and very kinky drool-worthy Dom/sub dynamic is here, have no fear. But this is a much darker departure from Doris’s usual books.
Susie is in the wrong place, wrong time as she stumbles out the door and out into the middle of Ren’s job. He’s there to kill a woman who has stolen from Ren’s boss, who just happens be London’s foremost crime lord. Before she can be a victim herself to the goons with the working girl, she watches as Ren quickly dispatches with them. She begs him not to kill her, and as he crowds her up against the door, getting turned on and realizing he’s turned on, he says…”Relax Pumpkin, if I wanted you dead you’d be toast already.
And so begins a story that I never put down as soon as I started it. And all I wanted to do is hate Ren and all of his co-horts, but then he’d go and melt my panties right off and you couldn't help but get excited at knowing this was just book one.
Make no mistake…Ren is a bad ass assassin, but the story between him and Susie is a roller coaster ride of hot and cold with all of the wonderful kink we’ve come to know and love from Doris O’Connor. Sometimes it’s hard to find redeeming qualities in the guys. They can come across as pretty heartless at times. And then…whew! I wanted in that cleaner house myself.
Bravo Doris! I’m waiting with baited breath for Ty’s book and the others sound simply too good to pass up!
It’s the choice of her life—submit or die.
When Susie Elliot stumbles into the middle of a clean-up, undertaken by none other than Ellis Reynolds, she expects her life to be over. No one disturbs this ruthlessly efficient killer and lives to tell the tale.
The man they call Ren has no time for tender feelings, but there is something about the curvaceous redhead that calls to him. Rather than killing her he claims her as his prize. One night should be more than enough time to get her out of his system. However, Susie’s submission means Ren has to confront emotions, completely alien to him. Killing is easy. This relationship thing is fraught with problems.
When his criminal activities catch up with him, loyalties are tested to the max, and Susie has another choice to make—walk away, or stay and accept the darkness within.
