From two bestselling authors—the first in a deliciously bold new series that takes readers to the most dangerous edge of desire . . .

Nikolai: I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the sight of my tattoos. The stars on my knees, the marks on my fingers, the dagger in my neck, all spoke of danger. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you’d have. I have ever been the hunter, never the prey. With her, I am the mark and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her, I will bring the world down around their ears.

Daisy: I’ve been sheltered from the outside world all my life. Home-schooled and farm-raised, I’m so naive that my best friend calls me Pollyanna. I like to believe the best about people. Nikolai is part of this new life, and he’s terrifying to me. Not because his eyes are cold or my friend warns me away from him, but because he’s the only man who has ever seen the real me beneath the awkwardness. With him, my heart is at risk . . . and also, my life.

    Great title, very fitting

    I have never read a jen Frederick book before this one however I have read several of Jessica Claire's stories under many pen names. I'm glad I have added this story to my long list of romances. However immediately I could tell that I must have missed a previous book or story with these characters and I felt that keenly as I was reading this one. I wish I had read the first story although this says it is the first installment in a series so I'm not sure if this was intentional on the authors part or not but I wish I had had more background going into the story than I did because the very first time Nikolai refers to daisies womanly center he calls it a cunt which is not sexy to me at all and later in the story after I got used to his Russian accent and ways of speaking it became easier in certain places. I would have preferred that to be used later on or you know ease me into that word a little bit better it distracted me from the storyline and that is never a good thing. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I want to read the others in the series. Another small detail that disturbed me was the author's lack of descriptive meaning of neck & body tattoos. Also please don't try to cram "big words" in the first 2 chapters to relay nicks intelligence it contrdictive to his persona. the author did a fantastic job of drawing me in even though it was written in the first person. I'm anxious to read what happens next with Nick and Daisy and curious about the "bad" cop. Hunky man.
