Melissa is an Assassin and one of the best. Fiercely independent and with her own set of rules, she always works alone and never harms an innocent. When her best friend is murdered, she swears to hunt down the killer. But for that she needs information and assistance.
Daniel Cranston believes strongly in working for the greater good but he didn’t ask for a partner, particularly not a sexy blonde bombshell with revenge on her mind.
When they realize how powerful their prey is, it’s far too late to turn back. Melissa is determined to avenge her friend, and Daniel can’t bring himself to leave her side. Passion and magic explode around them. On the tail of a rogue Assassin, one who is increasing his powers by draining his victims, what few rules they each hold dear are all going to be left far behind.
A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
A rogue assassin is increasing his magical powers by draining his victims in this thrilling paranormal romance. This novella in the Urban Seductions series starts off a little on the slow side in terms of excitement but the intrigue keeps the reader’s attention and the rest of the book explodes with thrills and excitement. Once again, I found this one to be a very enjoyable and entertaining magical romance with captivating characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

About Elizabeth Lapthorne:
Elizabeth Lapthorne is the eldest of four children. She grew up with lots of noise, fights and tale-telling. Her mother, a reporter and book reviewer, instilled in her a great appreciation of reading with the intrigues of a good plot.
Elizabeth studied Science at school, and whilst between jobs complained bitterly to a good friend about the lack of current literature to pass away the hours. While they both were looking up websites for new publishers, she stumbled onto Ellora’s Cave. Jumping head-first into this doubly new site (both the first e-book site she had ever visited, as well as her first taste of Romantica) they both devoured over half of EC’s titles in less than a month. While waiting for more titles to be printed (as well as that ever-elusive science job) Elizabeth started dabbling again in her writing.
Elizabeth has always loved to read, it will always be her favourite pass-time, (she is constantly buying new books and bookshelves to fill), but she also loves going to the beach, sitting in the sun, having coffee (or better yet, CHOCOLATE and coffee) with her friends and generally enjoying life. She is extremely curious, which is why she studied science, and often tells “interesting” stories, loving a good laugh. She is a self-confessed email junkie, loving to read what other people on the EC board think and have to say, she laughs often at their tales and ideas. She recently has developed a taste for the gym. She’s sure she read somewhere it was good for her, but she is reserving judgment to see how long it lasts. J
