Shades of Cruelty
When an unconscious raven-haired beauty appears on King’s doorstep, he’s furious to find her on his territory. Who would leave her with a killer like him? He left the mercenary world. But it’s rude to return a gift.
Dark eyes watch her from the shadows when she awakes. Ember Bellamy wants answers King doesn’t have, but she knows he’s a dangerous man. Discovering the man she shouldn’t trust is the one she does.
King never should have retired, but now that he’s keeping Ember, he can’t go back to that life. His secrecy is blown. King is the target and Ember is the prize. He won’t let anything happen to her, even if it means embracing the darkness in his soul and accepting the monster within.
An illegal job is best done by those with the most dangerous reputation.
Sophie Lee made sure to hit her abusive husband where it hurt when she escaped him. She left him without a penny to his name. Looking to the law for help isn’t an option, but mercenaries might be able to give her what she needs.
His home is in the shadows.
Dak rules the darkened corners. The life he led created a savage soul and one of the deadliest mercenaries alive. Helping women escape abuse never had a price. But as he has a woman on the run pinned against the wall, he takes one step out of the shadows. Saving Sophie comes at a cost.
For once, Sophie is on her own. But finding out her ex was involved in more than she knew puts her two steps behind. And in danger. Her plans crumble when bullets fly, she’s chased down, attacked, and to top it off, has to fight a dark eyed mercenary at every turn who makes her shiver and submit like she never thought possible.
