K. Sterling invites you to return to Lake Cliff and catch up with Aiden, Lane, Lavender, and Sage in this sequel to In The Kill and crossover with the Hide and Keep trilogy.
Can you domesticate an international assassin? Can a criminal be reformed and play well with others?
Happily ever after doesn’t always happen right away or as easily as you might imagine. Lavender must decide how much he’s willing to sacrifice for love and if he can make peace with his past.
Despite his hopes, fate isn’t ready to let Lane West settle into his own happily ever after peacefully. A new threat comes to Lake Cliff and he’s forced to team up with his worst nightmare.
“You didn’t bring a vest,” Lane said and Lavender snorted.
“I don’t plan on getting shot,” he said absently as he stared at the diner and Lane rolled his eyes.
“Or it wouldn’t compliment your ensemble,” he muttered and Lavender shrugged.
“What’s the point really?” He asked. “I can’t wear it under my jacket. Even if it fit, I would ruin the clean lines and
proportions. And it would be ridiculous to wear it over my jacket,” he added and Lane raised a brow.
“Because it would look stupid?” He asked and Lavender gave him an impatient look.
“No. They’d see it and aim for my head,” he said and Lane winced in agreement.
“Good point,” he said. “You can hang back with the rifle if I have to go in,” he said and Lavender sighed wearily.
“How about you wear your vest because it keeps you from getting cold or jumping at loud sounds and I’ll make sure I don’t get shot?”
