Synopses & Reviews
Eden Black walks among humans, protecting them from the murderous evil of other-worlders who abduct and enslave. And though she appears to be human herself, Eden is an alien, a Raka, distinguished by her golden hair and skin, and gifted with the ominous ability to kill without remorse -- and with total accuracy. That is, until the fateful night she has one shot to eliminate her target, a human slaver -- and misses.
"Failure" is not in Eden's vocabulary. Neither is "partner" -- but that's what she is forcibly assigned after recovering from her disastrous mission. A sexy, steely-nerved human agent, Lucius Adaire enjoys nothing more than sparking the fury -- and rousing the desire -- of the fiery female assassin too proud to admit defeat. Locked in an assignment they cannot afford to lose, Lucius and Eden find themselves bound in two high-stakes, heart-pounding games: the sensual web of kill or be killed, and the erotic dance of seduction.
Though humanoid in appearance, Eden Black is 100% alien. She's a Raka, a golden one. She's also a spirit walker and deadly assassin. Now she's been ordered to destroy a group of slavers, other-worlders who are abducting humans and selling them on other planets. When she fails to eliminate her first target, she's given a new partner - Lucius Adaire, a tough as nails, hard ass slayer who considers a female assassin "amusing." As the two learn to work together, they must fight the white-hot blaze of desire that threatens to scorch them both.
