Big THANK YOU to Angelica Dawson for keeping us going each week.
My next release is coming soon. Edits landed in my inbox last week. Reading this MS with fresh eyes was pure joy. I LOVE this story.
This will be the third book in my Assassins and Sweethearts Series and it tells Aidan’s story.
I’ve jumped ahead a bit again. This part takes place in the middle of the story. Liz is recovering in Aidan’s bathtub after a rather scary moment. Hope you enjoy!

Her breathing picked up and she rubbed her chest. She’d had it all wrong. It was Aidan who had saved her not only last night, but today too. Her body lit up with the idea of trusting him completely. He was the one who’d gotten her to forget all her troubles last night. He was the one who’d saved her today. Maybe he really was her hero. Her body lit on fire.
But she’d yelled at him and accused him of all kinds of terrible things. Was he even still here? In an effort to save her life, had she ruined something real? She leaned forward over her knees. The bathwater had turned cold and she knew only one thing could warm her now.
She climbed out of the tub. “Aidan,” she called. Her voice came out brittle. Chilly air floated over her rapidly cooling skin. She grabbed the towel he’d set on the chair for her. Its fluffy warmth doing little to prepare her for what she was about to ask.
The door opened and he appeared. The same deliciously handsome man she’d been with for an entire evening. Damn, she wanted to sink back into that moment, a perfect moment of luscious luxury. She took a step forward and stumbled. In two large steps he was in front of her and he clasped her waist. The heat took her by surprise.
Once her feet were stable, she said, “I’m sorry I ran.” She clutched his shirt and focused on his mouth.
“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you the truth earlier.” He brushed her dripping hair from her face.
“Oh, Aidan.” She gazed up into his blue eyes and saw everything she’d dreamed of. His strength, worry, and passion swirled together giving her something to cling to.
Elizabeth Martin thought she already had her happily ever after, that is until her husband mysteriously disappeared. Aidan Clery is a skilled assassin for hire who wants nothing more than to find the love of his life. Fate throws Liz in his path and everything is perfect, except Aidan just won the contract on her life.
The truth surrounding Liz’s estranged husband takes the pair on a dangerous journey. Nothing in their lives will ever be the same. Destiny may be unexpected but it will be up to Aidan and Liz to discover the truth and claim their real happily ever after.
