Viper has always been a bastard, a nightmare, death for hire. He's known for his swift kills, so he isn't surprised when he's offered seven figures for a new hit. It's supposed to be a quick find and eliminate. When his mark turns out to be an innocent twenty-year old with big blue eyes, he shouldn't care one way or another—but he does. Viper wants to keep her for himself.
Pepper's step-father killed her mother, and she's been on the run ever since. When a hitman shows up on her doorstep, covered in ink, and strapped with heat, she expects to be his next victim. But she's wrong. Viper keeps her safe from the mercenaries hoping to cash in on the world-wide contract on her head. He's everything she's not, but she still finds herself falling hard for her captor.
With the odds against them, and death waiting around every corner, can they find true love in each other? Or is Viper only interested in taking her innocence?

With a contract out on her life, Pepper is on the run when she comes face to face with Viper, a deadly paid assasin. She's no match for the tattooed bad boy, but some quick thinking buys her some time.
Authors Sam Crescent and Stacey Espino team up for TAKING HER INNOCENCE, the first installment in the Killer of Kings series. It's a powerful combination of suspense and heat as Viper and Pepper try to flush out the bad guys. Meanwhile, the chemistry between them grows until it flames out of control.
I loved every bit of this story, especially the solid back story that shaped Viper into a cold-blooded killer. I'm looking forward to exploring more in this series. The snappy dialog works well in building the tension between Pepper and Viper. Secondary characters are a definite asset, giving the reader a solid foundation for future installments.
