“I tried to kill you,” she all but shouted.
He couldn’t help himself; he grinned. Her lips thinned, and her entire body all but vibrated against him.
“You think that’s funny?” she demanded.
“You are out of your mind. You know that, don’t you?”
“You act like you’re the first woman who’s tried to kill me.” She felt so damn good against him. He liked arguing with her almost as much as he liked having sex. She was strong-willed and determined, wouldn’t be intimidated by him. That was sexy as hell.
“Why am I not surprised to hear that?”
Marks Mercenaries, Book 5
When mercenary and
space trader Flynn Marks is approached by a woman in a seedy bar, he assumes
she’s not just looking for a good time. He’s made enemies over the course of
his life. With his family finally safe and settled, he’ll handle this latest
threat on his own.
Cerena Phelps has been tasked with killing a man if she ever wants to see her teenage son again. While she’s no stranger to fights—being a woman bouncer is a tough job—she’s never killed a man. Her plan? Lure Flynn away from the bar, seduce him, and kill him when his guard is down. Not a hardship given her unexpected and intense sexual attraction for her target. When her attempt on Flynn’s life fails, they must learn to trust each other if they both hope to survive and rescue her son.
