Sometimes in life, choices just aren't part of the plan. When fate interferes and bulldozes right over you.

That's how I felt the first time I saw him. Standing in my kitchen, soaking wet, hotter than a man has the right to be, and holding a knife.

Declan's cold, stone-cold. I can't help but want him. His presence stirs up some raw emotion within me. He seems so...alone. But is he here to kill me or save me?

He's the one man I should never want...and the one I can never forget.

 Mercenary by Michele Mannon (Deadliest Lies, #2)

Mercenary (Deadliest Lies #2)Sex, blood, a killer for hire and the naive sister of a black ops soldier on the run for assumed betrayal. Add a deep, dark mystery that is threaded throughout and sizzling erotic romance and, what can I say, looks like Michele Mannon has written herself a page scorching winner with Mercenary.

Madelyn is in danger, thanks to her sister’s possible defection and disappearance. Kylie was always the daring one, the brave one and Madelyn was the studious, and quiet one, the timid one who knew nothing of what her sister did. Now she has become a pawn in a deadly game that has the deadliest mercenary around giving her the protection she needs instead of tracking down and erasing her sister’s life. Declan is dark, his heart is like onyx, but in Madelyn he sees something special, something beautiful that he couldn’t possibly deserve. Holding her virtually a captive, they feel the sparks of a raging inferno of lust, desire and possible love. How the mighty fall when the heart is involved and Madelyn is slowly chipping away at the monster that lives within DeClan.

Not for the faint of heart, this dark and brutal mercenary is 100% alpha, 100% badboy loner and the least likely to be named hero of the year. He is a man of few words, used to taking a woman for all he needs and walking away. And then there’s Madelyn, a little too innocent, a little too na├»ve and yet, she brings DeClan to his knees as she learns the art of seduction form the master and surpasses his teachings. High on sexual content, high on mystery and intrigue, this erotic tale will scorch your eyeballs as love grows between two unlikely souls.

I was invited to review an ARC edition from Swerve. BIG mistake not having offered book one first...perhaps it should be noted that this is NOT a stand alone.
