Image of Assassins in Love (Assassins Guild)

Set in a universe where murder can be legal, this is an exciting adventure with a hot romance between two fascinating characters. Their profession and the fact that no apologies are made for it make for an intriguing story. One hopes there will be a second story featuring the heroine’s friend.

When Rikki Bastogne gets unasked-for help from Misha with her latest assassination, she doesn’t realize that she knows him. A member of the Assassins Guild, Misha judges Rikki to be cold and unethical. He’s determined to convince her to join the Guild or end her assassin’s career — one way or another. He badly misjudges her, for Rikki only accepts jobs where the target is a truly bad person, and she prefers working without rules, something Misha can’t understand. When she discovers his true identity, she runs from him, only to make some shocking discoveries about their shared past when he finds and confronts her. Soon they are working together to prevent as assassination, instead of committing one. (SOURCEBOOKS, Mar., 384 pp., $6.99)
