**edit to add that all the allotted ARCs have been claimed**
How did it get to be October so quickly?? And nearly half way through October at that! It'll be All Hallows Eve before you know it. Speaking of which, October 31st is Devil in the Details release date. Yay!! Eek! Yay!!!
I'm in the process of putting the final touches on the novella and should have it ready for pre-order and ARCs soonish. But in the meantime, it's time to start with the teasing . . . eh, the reveals. ;)
If there’s one thing assassin Ethan Blade knows, it’s how to plan a job. How to study a target, find the weak spot, and strike. He keeps his guns clean, his knives sharp, and his heart sealed away behind more locks than his precious cars. Alone but safe. Until Jack Reardon burrowed his way into Ethan’s life, his car, and his heart. This may just be the deadliest mess he can’t plan his way out of.
Jack wasn’t sure he’d see Ethan again—not after the less-than-stellar ends to their previous hookups. Even finding the assassin skulking about his apartment isn’t as reassuring as it should be, especially when he works out Ethan’s motive for being there might not be personal. That said, Jack will take any chance he can to salvage their relationship, assuming he survives whatever plan Ethan is cooking up.
Ethan and Jack had a bargain, but the parameters changed and neither are certain how to move forward—together or apart. But before they can start to renegotiate, lives, trust, and hearts are endangered by ghosts from the past. Even if they dodge their enemies’ bullets, there’s a risk of friendly fire, and when you let someone get too close, even small knives can cut deep.
I'm so excited for people to read this novella. It rounds out the story arc, answers some questions and sets up for book 2, Why the Devil Stalks Death (which is still on track for December 9). There's action with lots of guns (see the cover) and bombs and RPGs, but there's also some quieter, sweeter moments, some heartache and views stunning enough to heal a hurting soul. ;)
I have a limited number of ARCs available for readers, and if you'd like one, just send me a private message (through the website or Goodreads) with your file preference. First come, first served.
