Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 9, 2019

As a hitman for hire, Percivale is no stranger to violence. 

From the moment he saw Blossom Jaymes through the window of her bakery, he knew he was in too deep. Not only was she as sweet as her perfectly crafted treats, but she was a soft-spoken, golden-haired angel that shone like a bright beacon in his dark world. And Percivale didn’t deal in angels. He dealt in death and crime. The even bigger issue? Percivale’s next hit is on said sweet little baker who doesn’t seem to realize how much danger lurks around her with each passing day. 
If he doesn’t get the job done, who will? 
When Percivale has to decide what’s more important to him—the life of a woman who may very well be innocent or getting his revenge on the men who murdered his family—the lines become blurred. Morals are twisted and a deathly chase ensues that can only result in one thing—Blossom buried six feet under. 
Or can it? 
Can Percivale let his lust for revenge go in order to save Blossom from the bounty on her head, or will the power she unknowingly holds over him be what gets her killed?

Dang, S.M. Soto amazes me with each new story she writes! Out of this series this has been my absolute favorite so far! I just can’t get enough of her books! 

Percivale is an assassin for the Cavalieri Della Morte mafia. His only focus has been to get back at all the people responsible for taking his family away from him at such a young age. He takes every assignment with no questions and follows through with his orders. That is until he meets a lovely bakery owner that he’s now been told to kill. Blossom is his total opposite but he’s still drawn to her innocence. Blossom never thought she could crave someone so dark and mysterious. With Percivale she finds confidence and discovers she loves his darkness. 

This is definitely a one click read! From steamy to mysterious it has all the feels of a great novella!
