SUMMARY
Ray comes from an elite order of blind assassins. Emotions don't touch her and only profit moves her. Her current assignment seems simple enough. For a generous bounty, all she has to do is kill an influential noblewoman, except Lady Valerie Sinclair is more than she seems.

Killing always came easy to Ray, so why does she keep delaying her task?

Val is a young widow from a noble family who needs to re-marry. She's always been an obedient daughter to her father and a loyal wife to her first husband, but Val doesn't want to go through the ordeal of being tied to a man she doesn't love a second time. It doesn't help she has a sneaking suspicion she's being stalked by an assassin.

Val is used to being surrounded by unseen enemies out for her blood. Could death's untimely arrival be just what she needs?

Some more length would have done wonders for this sexy short.

An assassin, Ray, has been assigned to kill Lady Valerie. Ray's been watching her, getting to know her and, ultimately, falling for her.

This was just too short to get a feel of anything between Ray and Valerie. I wanted so much more from them. I liked the premise and I get that this is just an erotic little short, but I was still left feeling like it was missing something. Missing something in the character department, otherwise it was definitely sexy as hell.

Judging by the blurb, this is historical. I didn't get a historical feel. I doubt that a Lady would just jump into bed with an assassin, let alone a woman. I also doubt that a woman would hold a position as an assassin. Not only that but the dialogue read contemporary to me. If either the dialogue were edited or the setting were changed to contemporary, it would have made a world of difference.

I liked the idea of THE LADY AND HER ASSASSIN. I love stories about the bad guy, but unfortunately, this fell short for me.
