A Dark Assassins Novel…. Kai … book 1 …. Valerie Ullmer
There are two words that described Kai.
Remote and Deadly.
And until six months ago, he was fine with that description. But when the vampire assassin spots a curvaceous woman, a human no less, who would come to fill his thoughts, he would gladly shake his persona for a moment in time with her. Instead, he kept his distance, watching out for her and learning more about her every time their paths crossed. But he had yet to speak to her. When a turn of events thrusts her into his solitary life, he must decide whether to complete his assignment, or protect her.
Olivia Sabin had dedicated her life to her work; finding a cure for cancer. She had hidden behind the mask of a scientist who cares little about anything beyond her laboratory, and for a long while she believed it herself. But when a mysterious man came to frequent the diner she visited nightly, her awareness of him devastated her concentration, and she came to look forward to the glimpses of him, however brief.
When she stumbles upon a horrific experiment at work, she knows he’s the only one she can turn to. She’s willing to sacrifice everything in order to protect him and others of his kind from the same fate. But first, she needs to find a way to get him to hear her explanation.
Kai is an assassin, he’s also a vampire, he works for a company of assassins. But he lives alone, he prefers his own company, but has a family of sorts within the company.
Whilst on assignment he glances at a woman, and has to take a second look, and a third one. For some reason he’s interested, and as she’s a human that’s a rare thing. He uses them for his feeding (blood), but they don’t usually warrant a glance. He begins to watch her from a distance, he makes sure she gets home safe. And then takes it one step further, he begins to sit in the restaurant that she eats in. He is totally under her spell, he needs to pluck up the courage to talk to her (a vampire that’s scared of a human female) then when an assignment comes in to check out his female (they think she’s created a weapon to destroy shifters and vampires) it’s the excuse he needs to talk to her and to discover if she’s their enemy or not.
Olivia is a scientist, she’s trying to find a cure for cancer (she lost her sister through leukaemia) when searching through her computer, she comes across a file, and when she opens it, she’s shocked at what she finds …… her research is being used as a weapon to kill !!!!
She needs to delete all her work from the system and then she needs to tell someone. And she knows exactly who to tell …. she had noticed someone following her and then in the restaurant where she eats. He looks a capable type, a man who knows people to help, so she makes the decision to talk to him the next time she sees him…..
The book continues in a fast pace, full of action. Full of misunderstandings, wires are crossed and opportunities missed.
Olivia is introduced to a group of assassins that soon turn into family, and Kai, well she’s like more, Will she get it ??? You’ll have to read the book to find out 😉
A new series is always a gamble….
But this gamble paid off, and I can’t wait to read more. There are so many characters and all need a story 😉
