It's the choice of her life—submit or die.
When Susie Elliot stumbles into the middle of a clean-up, undertaken by none other than Ellis Reynolds, she expects her life to be over. No one disturbs this ruthlessly efficient killer and lives to tell the tale.
The man they call Ren has no time for tender feelings, but there is something about the curvaceous redhead that calls to him. Rather than killing her he claims her as his prize. One night should be more than enough time to get her out of his system. However, Susie's submission means Ren has to confront emotions, completely alien to him. Killing is easy. This relationship thing is fraught with problems.
When his criminal activities catch up with him, loyalties are tested to the max, and Susie has another choice to make—walk away, or stay and accept the darkness within.

HIS PRIZE by Doris O'Connor is a hardboiled story of Susie and Ren. When we first meet Ren, he's about to grab a couple thugs as well as a dancer who has been stealing from the boss. Out walks Susie and suddenly his world is turned upside down. This hard-edged man finds himself falling hopelessly for the new waitress.
I really enjoyed the plot of the story. For starters, Susie seems to have made seriously poor choices in men. The ones she's been with have taken advantage of her and one to the point where she lost almost everything. Enter Ren, the head Cleaner. And suddenly, her world is turned upside down in a frightening and powerful way. With Susie's submissive side directly keyed into Ren's dominance, that's where it starts to get good.
This story does have some violence although it's only referred to, we aren't actually witness to any of it. It has a strong D/s tone that permeates every page. A bit of kink. And the erotic scenes are downright yummy. The characters are great. Bit of an emotional rollercoaster between Ren and Susie but it all comes together.
I admit to becoming a Doris O'Connor fan and this story fits in well with her catalogue. It was a great way to spend a couple evenings and definitely, a story I would read more than once.
