Emily is a cautious assassin. While researching a target as a favor for a friend it all goes wrong, and she bumps into Finlay Mann—an Agent. A deep conspiracy has them only able to trust each other and risk their most venerable targets—their hearts.

Emily is an assassin—but one with a difference. She insists on checking out her targets herself, refusing to take a mission from her government contact—James—until she’s satisfied the person truly does deserve to die. She’s doing such research on a highly placed government man—a friend of the PM—when all hell breaks loose. The café Keyton Marshall is in is shot up, and Emily finds herself under attack.

Finlay Mann is with the Agency. He’s tagging along, playing bodyguard when what was supposed to be a simple, time-filling, routine job goes seriously south. After making certain his client is safely away, he’s drawn in by Emily. Together, they’re trying to piece a complex puzzle and discover who is being lied to, betrayed, and possibly with traitorous results.

Unsure whom either can trust, it’s the passion that flares between them that finally reassures them both they’re on the same side, albeit from different perspectives. Emily is ensnared by Fin’s loyalty and compassion, and Fin finds himself desperate to protect and support this fierce, hard woman who for too long has been able to rely on no one but herself. They both know the fatality of a heart shot, but each is helpless to resist the other.

The story focused on the relationship Emily and Fin had, as well as trying to stay alive and was a fast paced story that the author kept flowing pretty well. The main three secondary characters played...

I’ve been enjoying Ms. Lapthorne’s The Agency series. She is one of the very few “original” erotic romance writers dating back almost a dozen years to the beginning of the genre. She still manages...

Elizabeth Lapthorne - BTSe Mag feature

I’ve always been a little weird.

When my school teachers were being polite they would mention things like “Elizabeth marches to a different beat”, or that I have an “interesting” way of looking at things. Of course there were many similar remarks that were far less complimentary. But outside of school, I have to admit these aren’t the bad things they were always made out to be. Looking at life —or just situations — from alternate perspectives, or daydreaming “what ifs” are seen as strengths, not characteristics to be beaten out of my system.
