Even Average Joes needs a break from work every now and then.  As a master assassin, Death Bringer Tyr is in desperate need of some drinks and distraction.  The hole in the wall bar he’d chosen was the best place for him to go unnoticed and be left alone.  His plan might have worked if distraction hadn’t walked into the bar wearing a short skirt. 

Arienne might look out of place in the bar, but she’s a woman on a mission.  She intends to find someone to help her, no matter what method of payment she has to offer.  Running the risk of being shunned by her family was a risk she’d gladly take if it meant she would live.  Ironically, her savior is also the man sent to kill her.   

The bargain Tyr and Arienne struck up left me breathless and blushing. Those two really burn up the pages with their unbridled lovemaking.  At the beginning, I was wondering if Arienne was too tame for Tyr, but boy was I wrong. There are some unexpected twists that were far from predictable and I think they brought about a perfect conclusion to Death Bringer.  There were some moments I fantasized about jumping in to join in on some of the payback.   Karland and Azod are never shy about bringing the heat and I love the way they saw to it that justice was served.  Although this isn’t a series, I can’t help hoping to get a glimpse into the world of another hot hit man.  This is another great read from the duo that readers are going to eat up like candy.
