              FIVE stars!!!  I loved these characters.  They lodged themselves in your heart and refuse to budge.  Mackenzie is so much more than any run of the mill heroine you’ve read before.  She will blow you away with her intelligence and wit, but you will also find yourself falling in love with her sensitive side.  Gabriel was the perfect match for this heroine.  It makes you understand that assassins are people too.


Top Pick For September.
