Drea Rousseau has made herself into a no brains blonde to reap the benefits of being a drug lord’s mistress. The image she throws up presents no threat to the very dangerous man.
The assassin is high priced and in demand. After doing a job for Rafael Salinas, the drug lord offers him a one hundred thousand dollar bonus. He turns it down and instead says he wants Drea. Rafael says he doesn’t share to which the assassin replies that he doesn’t want to keep her, just — one time.
Okay so not the most endearing hero and heroine and this all happens within the first 4 pages. A fast start to end all fast starts. And, it all works, by the end of the story I was loving both the assassin and Drea.
Linda Howard has again woven a tale of second changes. In Death Angel ‘bad girls’ can learn to trust their hearts and ‘bad boys’ can fight for good and dying can make the impossible happen.
