Ruling a billion-dollar fragrance industry is a piece of cake for Sasha St. Claire. She’s the best at what she does as a businesswoman and vampire. Her day of meetings and planning the next werewolf assassination takes a nose dive when everything electrical in her office dies.

Tripp Stefano is more than a nonchalant maintenance man. He’s also the notorious Stalker, a werewolf who has several vampire kills under his belt. For months, Tripp’s been working for Sasha’s company and waiting for the perfect opportunity to kill her.

Sasha and Tripp each have a job to do but all they can think about is ripping each other’s clothes off. Mind blowing sex first and assassination after. That was the new plan. After the connection formed between the couple, would either of them be able to complete their mission?

I fell in love with Scents, the second story of the Assassins in Lace series, before I finished the first page. How could I resist these lethal, lustful opposites who attract? Tripp picked some interesting moments to divulge information to Sasha that he conveniently forgot to mention, which had me grinning from ear to ear. His easygoing arrogance is a total turn on, because he uses it to push all of Sasha’s buttons. Sasha thinks she has the upper hand, but she fell hard for Tripp the very first moment. That kind of unexpected chemistry appeals to me more in this story because Tripp and Sasha are sworn enemies. Hopefully by the next installment in this series, the couple will find a way to kiss that isn’t fatal. But, I have to admit that Jocelyn Michel has found sensational substitutions for French kissing that will leave readers as breathless as I was when I finished this amazing story. I will never look at the maintenance man in my office the same after this.
