I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector...a killer...I am Noah Blake.
There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am...an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore...usually.
It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak…shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.
But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else...
This is a series that has me absolutely glued. I read the very short prequel and knew this was going to be a deep love story with a lot of intrigue and characters that capture the reader.
Lucia has made a life for herself. Her dream of being a part of the fashion business is just beginning. She's trying to get past the tragedy of her brother's murder several years ago. She gained another protector, Noah, her brother's close friend, still stays close. Not as close as she would like, yet too close as well. She has had a crush on him for years, but she's been in the little-sister zone. The problem is that he doesn't let her get close to any other guys either.
Noah just wants to keep guys who aren't good enough away from her. It is the least he can do for his friend. That's what he keeps telling himself. In reality, he can't stand the idea of any other man touching her. Yet, it can't be -- the two of them are impossible. He has a past he can't share.
This has a cliffhanger, but the second part is coming right behind the first and I have to read it. I'm ready. The strongest possible recommend from me.

USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
