Vampire Chantel Mathis, aka Karma, is an assassin who always gets her werewolf. Tonight she's posing as an interior decorator applying for a position at Aubrey Enterprises. Her interviewer and mark is Ren Aubrey, the delectable CEO and owner. Though Ren plays the role of savvy businessman to perfection, Karma knows there's more there than meets the eye. This werewolf is really an assassin so deadly that the vamps have nicknamed him Slayer.
What Karma doesn't know is that Ren is exactly her type. Worse, he's onto her. So the moment he steps into the room, she struggles not only to keep her wits about her, but to keep her distance. It doesn't help that Ren is every bit as beguiled and perfectly willing for their business relationship to be much more. Will Karma be able to resist Slayer's many charms? Or will their night of passion turn deadly?
When could sex with a gorgeous man who not only has a perfect body but the stamina of the energizer bunny possibly be bad? How about when he’s a killer of your kind and your next target for assassination. Talk about sleeping with the enemy!
Karma has just about had enough of the rich, shifter Ren Aubrey AKA Slayer. He’s murdered over fifty of her sister assassins and it’s time someone put this dog down. While he obviously has some skills of his own, she has no doubt she’s the vampire for the job. Problem is, when she finally has her chance, she finds herself flat on her back with the enemy between her legs (and just about everywhere else as well!). Karma and Ren suddenly find themselves in quite a quandary. Though their kinds have been at war for years, and by all rights they should be tearing each other apart, they just can’t seem to keep their hands off each other.
Assassins in Lace: Impressions is a very quick and very graphic story. This tale isn’t for the modest or easily embarrassed. Out of thirty-seven pages, about twenty are filled with detailed sexual content. While I can’t find fault in the author’s writing, I would have liked to see a little more plot. Other than some basic information, I really didn’t get to know the characters very much, particularly Ren. I think some emotions were a little rushed, but in this short of a story, there isn’t a lot of time to delve into character and plot development. Overall, it was a fun read and definitely got my motor running.
For a fast, fun story with lots of hot sex, pick up a copy of Assassins in Lace: Impressions. I guarantee you’ll finish the book with a smile and have a sudden need to go find your main squeeze for a little fun of your own.
