A teenage serial killer with a mysterious past.
The deadly hunter sworn to protect her.
Secrets, lies and a shot at redemption.
It all begins with a kiss.
When 16-year-old Nic Rutherford heads out for a night on the town, she brings a full arsenal. Her best weapon? A deadly kiss that can take down the biggest game around—humans. Two-legged predators don’t stand a chance once she makes lip to skin contact. But her blessing is also a curse, one that Nic fears will inadvertently harm anyone who gets too close—her aunts, her best friend, or the mysterious new boy who possesses strange abilities of his own.
Aiden Jager has the one thing Nic can’t resist—information. With his help Nic unearths answers about her own murky past along with the key to a hidden world where magic thrives and the impossible becomes reality if one is willing to pay the ultimate price. Beware, for once the door is open, there’s no turning back.

Nic has “The Kiss of Death.” Bad guys beware, once her lips touch your skin, its game over. It isn’t that Nic doesn’t know she has this power, it’s always been there. Maybe because of her “gift,” she really isn’t interested in having a boyfriend or being close with anyone other than her two aunts and her best friend.
So where is the revelation that will change Nic’s life forever? (Trust me, it's there!) Where did Nic get her power and how? The truth that has been hidden from her all of life will come boiling over when the new boy at school is determined to get to know her better. Aiden knows about Nic, and he will do anything to help her uncover her past, help her discover what it means for her present and be by her side as her future is revealed.
Who isn’t drawn to a tale of magic and the murky depths of Fate? Nic is about to enter a world of fantasy, treachery and the Fae. Will she remember her role, who she once was and can she be that person now? The future is uncertain, but the outcome will rest on Nic’s young shoulders.
THE GOODNIGHT KISS by Jennifer L. Hart is a real twist on dark secrets, hidden worlds and the machinations of evil in a quest for power and control. One human girl will find out who she was meant to be and how love can be as endless as the veil between fantasy and the human world. Will Nic like the person she once was?
A sturdy foundation for a new series, Nic makes a great character, a little edgy, a little lonely and a little bit of a misfit as she struggles to find a place to fit in without losing who she is now. Ms. Hart has slathered on a complex world in ever-changing layers, while still allowing her characters to shine through with their own growth!
I’m looking forward to seeing where we will be taken next!
