3 More Days


Ivar’s Escape

Assassins of Gravas, Book 2


Ivar el Gravaso—a prince of Gravas—wakes in a prison cell with no idea how he got there or even who he is. If his captor can’t get answers from Ivar, his days are numbered. When a strange woman sneaks into the prison and promises to get him out, he’s suspicious. Is this nothing more than another trick by his captor or is she truly there to help?

Delphi is an assassin sent by the Gravasian government to infiltrate the space pirate stronghold of Tortuga in search of the missing prince. She finds a prisoner who is well-spoken, knowledgeable, and ready to fight, even though he has no idea who he is. He might be her target. It’s difficult to tell due to his ragged appearance. But no way can she leave him behind, no matter who he is.


“You came back.” The surprise in his voice was an insult.

“I said I would.” She tried four keys before she hit the right one. Turning the lock, she yanked the door open. “Took me longer than I anticipated. Come on. We need to move fast.”

“I shouldn’t.”

Okay, she hadn’t seen this one coming.

She whirled around, stomped over to him, and drilled her finger into his chest. “I’ve just killed four men to get in here. You’re coming with me if I have to drag you.”

His lips twitched. “I’m not sure you can.”

“You’d be surprised what I can do,” she muttered.

“No, I don’t think I would.”
