Eden Black walks among humans, protecting them from the murderous evil of other-worlders who abduct and enslave. And despite the fact that she seems to be human herself, Eden is an alien, a Raka, distinguished by her golden hair and skin, and gifted with the ominous ability to kill without remorse — and with total accuracy. That may be, until the fateful night she has one shot to do away with her target, a human slaver — and misses.
“Failure” isn’t in Eden’s vocabulary. Neither is “partner” — but that is what she is forcibly assigned after recovering from her disastrous mission. A sexy, steely-nerved human agent, Lucius Adaire enjoys nothing more than sparking the fury — and rousing the need — of the fiery female assassin too proud to admit defeat. Locked in an assignment they can’t have enough money to lose, Lucius and Eden find themselves bound in two high-stakes, heart-pounding games: the sensual internet of kill or be killed, and the erotic dance of seduction.
