The Assassin’s Revenge series by Tara Crescent

The Assassin’s Revenge series by Tara Crescent

In the world of contract killers, vulnerability is dangerous and love will get you killed.

For many years, Ellie has trained to be an assassin in order to kill the men who kidnapped and raped her when she was eighteen. Nothing else has been allowed to interfere with her mission.

But when she meets the sexy and mysterious Alexander Hamilton at a bar, her tough façade crumbles, and she can’t help but be drawn to him.

Alexander Hamilton lives by his own rules and has his own hidden agenda.  When he sees Ellie, he knows he wants her, though he knows he can never allow himself to have her.
One night is all that is permitted…

However, Ellie and Alexander are hiding secrets from each other. Their worlds are about to intersect and the secrets they keep might end up destroying both of them.


Hello, I’m Tara Crescent. I’ve always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true!

Sort of.

By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit, and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)

I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in.

I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work.  My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.

I love reader email; I can be reached at

Happy reading and writing!

Found Assassin's Revenge #1


** ARC received from the Author in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Words Turn Me On Book Blog**

The first book in The Assassins Revenge Series and wow what a start, although a short novella compared to the three further full length novels in the series that are all out, it certainly packed a punch!

Ellie was kidnapped at the tender age of 18, thrust into a world of sex, slavery and abuse. Now freed from her captors and a trained assassin vows to seek revenge and kill the men that repeatedly raped and tortured her. Nothing else matters and nothing can interfere with her mission…

Cue the mysterious and sexy Alexander Hamilton, suddenly Ellie’s façade starts to crumble and for one night and one night only she wants him and no matter how hard she tries to fight it she can’t deny the pull she feels towards him.

Alexander Hamilton lives by his own rules and has his own hidden agenda. When he sees Ellie for the first time he knows he can’t have her, but maybe breaking a few of his own rules won’t hurt after all one night can’t hurt can it?

Bought Assassin’s Revenge #2

The second book in the Assassins Revenge Series does not fail to deliver! Delving straight back into where Found ended…time to pay the piper!

Ellies mission to be bought by the mysterious Alex Hamilton aka Marc comes to fruition, Alex instantly recognises Rachel aka Ellie who is now Jenny…keeping up? Without completely giving the plot away for this instalment when Ellie and Alexander met previously two years ago in Paris they were both using an alias name, things are about to become huge!

Still concealing their identities from each other, the lies stack up and trust goes out the window!

As the book is told through dual POV’s, I loved the fact that as a reader it really amped up my excitement at what was about to happen, as the characters were still figuring it out. The suspense, intrigue and sexual chemistry is second to none, literally couldn’t turn the pages quick enough but another bloody cliffhanger…my nerves are hanging on by a thread! LOL

Book three is out and I can’t wait to get started.

Freed Assassin's Revenge #3


** ARC received from the Author in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Words Turn Me On Book Blog**

Freed the third instalment in the Assassins Revenge Series, and what a rollercoaster, edge of your seat ride!

Wow did not see that coming! Another brilliantly executed piece of writing that I have come to love about Tara Crescent’s style! Really don’t want to divulge the plotline in this part of the story as there is nothing worse than a review that practically rewrites the story for you with a spoiler fest thrown in for good measure! At this point if you’re on book three you know enough about Alex and Ellie and their journey and all I can say is you better strap yourself in because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride…

Again the suspense, intrigue and sexy time has the power to set alight the pages of your book/kindle left me literally not being able to turn the pages fast enough!

Book 4…can’t wait to read the concluding part of this series.

Claimed Assassin’s Revenge #4


** ARC received from the Author in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Words Turn Me On Book Blog**

Claimed book 4 and the concluding instalment to what has been one of the best Romantic Suspense series I have read in a long time and fully deserving of the five star rating…Ms Crescent take a bow!

I was slightly apprehensive about entering into the fourth instalment as wasn’t really sure where the plotline was going to go especially with how book three ended and if things would unravel further or come together, so imagine my surprise when not only did it still have more twists and turns than a helter skelter. The suspense was still edge of your seat gripping and pretty sure I had to blow on my kindle a few times as the “sexy time” was off the charts hot!

I’ve loved being on Ellie and Alex’s journey throughout this series. I’m pretty sure my nerves have been shot to hell while I have firmly been strapped into the rollercoaster of emotions but every single cliff hanger, deceit, abuse and then love was worth it and to be honest pretty jealous to those that get to read it for the first time…

Got the happy ending I was routeing for since book one…hoping we haven’t heard the last from Ellie and Alex and maybe their journey isn’t quite finished…
