No. Never. The last thing Garik Denikon would do is willingly tie himself to a woman. That would require a level of trust the ruthless assassin didn't allow.
Yet, here he was.
On the run, escaping from an enemy, with his bonded mate at his side.
Saedra had one chance. Only one, to grasp freedom and escape. So she took it with both hands locked tight to the dark-haired man in her father's dungeon. She didn't care about his deadly reputation or the rumors. Garik Denikon was worth the risk if he helped her to get away.
A tale of an assassin who comes to a planet to complete an assignment and is betrayed. Who is saved in more ways than one by a wounded woman at the place he is held. I enjoyed this book, when I pick up a book by Ms. Howard I know it will be a keeper.
