Deals are made. Secrets are revealed. And nothing is ever as it seems.
Arianna Westbrooke has accidentally stumbled onto something she only thought to be real in the books she reads and edits. Forced into an assassin's guild she discovered, she must learn new skills, stealth and above all, that attachments are a luxury she can no longer afford.
Marcus Valentine, the biggest and hottest customer for the guild's front business has a motto. "No attachments, no distractions." But distraction is just what this young development mogul gets when he sees the young, shy editor.
Arianna must keep her new career a secret or risk endangering the lives of her loved ones. So when Marcus Valentine comes calling Arianna does everything in her power to stay away. Well, everything except successfully staying away from him.
Marcus and Arianna can't deny their attraction, despite the glaring holes in the information she shares. But when Marcus is yanked into her world and his life is in danger, will Arianna risk her identity to save him? And at what cost?
