Thank you for having me today. I'm thrilled that Unexpected Destiny has released!
These assassins have really gotten a hold on me. I canât wait till they all have their happily ever after. How did I get here, giving happy endings to assassins?
Initially I was looking to find love for a bad boy. Assassins arenât usually the hero. Theyâre the villain. But I wanted to change all that. These four men came to me almost instantly. In no time, I had bits of each of their stories. I knew I had to write it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly on these men who want to save the lives of those who canât get the help they so desperately need, whose lives are in immediate danger.
Now that Iâve pulled that string, I see a whole mess of stories. Once I tell the stories of these four men, more will come. Great things are in store. I canât wait to experience it all. <3

Aidan turned off the faucet and caught the reflection of those gorgeous brown eyes in the mirror.
âOops. Wrong door,â said his girl as she turned around.
âI can share.â He could handle the surveillance later. This woman deserved his attention.
She stopped and turned around. âOkay then.â She took a step toward him. âYou know what? I should have asked for confirmation earlier.â Her gaze was full of mischief.
âYouâre right. You should have asked.â He took a hold of her hand and pulled her close. âI sure would like to see that tiny scrap of lace.â And just like that his night got infinitely better.
She stopped her forward movement when their chests were a mere inch apart. A nice rosy blush heated her cheeks. He kept hold of her hand while her other played with the lapel of his dark leather jacket. âI canât believe Iâm doing this.â
âYou need to get back to your friends?â
âYes, butâ¦â She licked her bottom lip. âMaybe I could stay here for a few minutes.â
âAt least a few.â He tapped the bottom of her chin. âHow about you start by telling me your name?â
âLiz.â Her gaze met his and he wanted time to stop. Something about the lonely look in her eyes called to him to not let her get away. She shifted closer. âWho are you?â
He pushed his finger over her waistband, rubbing her hipbone. âIâm Aidan.â He squeezed the hand he still held. Her soft body relaxed against his.
âI should probably go. I need to get my friends home.â
âI donât think you should go anywhere.â He brushed his nose against hers.
A delicious moan slipped from her lips. âI donât want to leave but I need to make sure they get home safely.â
âItâs nice of you to look out for them.â Damn, she smelled good. It was lilacs or roses or something.
âIâd rather stay here with you.â She leaned in and their lips almost met. âMy friends are always right. I should have gone out with them months ago.â
âStay a few more minutes.â He caressed over her hips to her round ass. Hot tension filled his thoughts. Forget a few more minutes, heâd take all night and then some to explore this beautiful woman.
âMore.â She scraped her teeth over her bottom lip.
A second later, the door opened. âLizzy, we got to go. Emily isnât feeling well.â
She dropped her head to his shoulder and he wrapped his arms around her.
âOh, Iâm so sorry, Lizzy.â The woman held the door open. âYouâre right. He is cute. Bring him with you. Emily wonât mind.â
âSheâll be right out,â he said. Once the friend left the bathroom, he brushed her hair behind her shoulders and stroked her back.
âI feel like Iâm cursed.â
âYou and me both, sweetheart.â He didnât let her go.
âWell.â She looked up at him from under her long, dark lashes. âItâs not what I had in mind but would you help me with my friends?â The soft tone of her voice had him imagining how sheâd purr if he made her come. âI think I might be the only one sober and they can be a bit much to wrangle into a cab. They live north in Edgewater and then we could do something, maybe go back to my place.â She worried her poor bottom lip once more.âIâd like that.â He squeezed her ass. âSure. Iâll help, Lizzy.â He tugged on her hair. Then heâd help himself to more of her.
