Due to demons from her past, Fal has refused to allow any emotion other than rage consume her, turning her into a destructive monster as self-defense. Getting too close and comfortable with anyone could get them killed, and Fal will not let that happen. Not again.
On one mission, Fal finds herself in a Seattle club, waiting out her next target. Nina, a sapphire-eyed, poetic spitfire, catches her attention from across the bar and Fal is caught off guard by the kind smile Nina sends her way. No one smiles that way at an assassin. After an incident involving Fal saving Nina’s life, they become connected on a level neither of them understands. But, this connection is forbidden in the assassin lifestyle and punishable by death.
Hunted by her demons and haunted by her past, Fal must discover what she values most, and if she’s willing to risk her life—and Nina’s—to get it.
