Even for one of the top assassins in Hell like him, Hartt’s latest contract would have been difficult enough, but there’s a complication—a beautiful, flame-haired, and dangerously tempting complication. Not only is the bewitching female a distraction he doesn’t need—she’s the competition.
Mackenzie’s life hasn’t been easy. Held captive by blood mages who murdered her family, forced to spend every day guarding her secret, and now she lands the biggest contract ever—one that would set her assassin’s guild up as one of the best in Hell—and it turns out her client hasn’t only hired her. He’s hired the top guild in Hell too. Worse, the male she’s up against is wickedly alluring, a dark elf warrior who sets her blood on fire, and the heat that sparks between them is in danger of burning her resolve to take him down to ashes.
It’s a race against time and each other to fulfil the contract by taking out one of the most dangerous men in Hell, a vampire with a name befitting of his bloody history, but who will be the one to claim victory—one of them or the King of Death?

Hartt is one of the best assassins around, his guild is one of the most sought after, he should have said no once he knew who the target was and the stipulations that came with it, but the darkness he carries inside is growing darker and he needed something to take his mind off of it. But he never saw the complication that came with it! Another assassin is after his prize! He needs to eliminate it fast! But fighting with the female brings other problems he’s never encountered before! The need to protect and possess!!
Mackenzie is an assassin with things to prove. Taking over her guild a few years ago, she’s tried her best to provide for her team. This latest job will set them up as one of the top guilds, all she has to do is kill the king of death! Oh and avoid an annoying elf who also has the target in his sights! Easy!!
This is the sixteenth book in this series and it’s not slowing down, action and suspense is still full on. Passion is hot, and heartache is in spades.
Hartt has been in a few books, and I’ve always liked the banter and action he brings to the stories. Mackenzie is a new character, and a welcome addition to the eternal mates world. Bringing two assassins together seems like a bad idea, but the way the author works their pasts and their jobs together, they make the ideal pair. But life is never that easy in this world! Mackenzie has something to prove, Hartt has a darkness to fight. And that makes for a rather bumpy road for the pair. Neither can nor will they give up the contract. And when they agree to work together can they keep it to a working business. And can they work out who their employer is? And can they really kill the vampire without knowing why?
We catch up with past characters and previous couples in this book (which being an avid fan of this series I absolutely love)
Another great read, if you’ve read the previous books in this series, your going to love it. If this is your first visit to this world, buckle up and enjoy the ride.
