Christopher Argent is London's deadliest hitman, never failing to take down a mark. That is, until a contract on the life of the stunningly beautiful actress Millie LeCour causes him to stay his hand. Overwhelmed by the passion that simmers between them, Christopher cannot complete his mission. But the intricacies of her situation run deep, and he will be bound to Millie as danger closes in. Millie is torn by the rush of fear-and surge of desire-she feels when she learns who Christopher is. But her pathway to safety leads her straight to his sinful arms, and each time is harder to resist. As everything she holds clear is threatened, Millie and Christopher must learn to trust-and give in to the desires that tempt them-if they are to save each other.

About Kerrigan Byrne
Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she's finally able to have the career she'd decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to grow up to be a romance novelist. Whether she's writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story. Her first novel with St. Martin's Press, THE HIGHWAYMAN, is available now and will be followed by THE HUNTER in February of 2016. She lives at the base of the Rocky Mountains with her handsome husband and three lovely teenage girls, but dreams of settling on the Pacific Coast.
