Former MI6 agent Jasper Kent gave up being a good man when his wife and daughter were murdered. Now, he’s a paid assassin for the highest bidder, using the payouts from his underworld contracts to fund his search for the man who killed his family. He gets the break he desperately craves when he’s invited to join Stark Security, a legitimate organization that knows nothing about his deadly side hustle, but provides the cover he needs for his private missions.

Then he hits the jackpot — kill the woman he’s been assigned to protect, and his payment will be the identity of the man who murdered his family.

But a broken heart may be the least of Zelda’s worries…

Prologue

 

 

I’m no stranger to being alone. To being surrounded by people, but entirely by myself. Wrapped in darkness, yet hiding it with bright smiles and bubbly laughter. Faking a life in the hope it will become real but knowing that won’t ever happen.

Then he entered my world, stepping past the walls that surround me. Filling the dark, small place in which I hide with light and hope.

He’s here and he’s real. He’s sunshine and joy. Light and love.

But that is only an illusion. The truth is he belongs in the darkness. It feeds him. Fuels him.

He’s horrible.

A monster. A bastard.

I look at him and know that’s what I should think now that I know what he planned. What he wanted.

And yet there’s warmth under his icy exterior. There’s hope in his eyes.

I see it. I crave it. And somehow the monster turns beautiful in my sight.

But the more his heat engulfs me, the more I am afraid.

Because I know better than anyone that fire destroys everything, and all I can hope is that love can still bloom from the ashes of those flames.

 

 

Chapter One

 

 

Jasper Kent sat on the bottom step of Jamie and Ryan Hunter’s back porch, his toes in the sand as he watched the sun slip away. A few clouds hung low in the sky, now illuminated in vibrant shades of purple and orange as Mother Nature painted yet another masterpiece on the Malibu horizon.

This was what he’d dreamed of so many years ago. A home outside of London with a beautiful view where he could grow old with Sandra. A house where Bonnie could grow up, huge and roomy and ready to be filled with sisters and brothers for her. A fairytale life wherein he and Sandra would sit on the porch and watch their children play and laugh and grow. The world would continue to turn with its horrors and tragedies, but his family would stay warm and safe in the protective bubble of a loving home.

And how much of a crock had that turned out to be?

Instead of London, he was living in Los Angeles.

Instead of a family, he was all alone.

Instead of a home, he had a hotel room.
