Opens into 13-year old Una Vasiliev, waking up in a cell after having been stolen from an orphanage, away from her sister Anna, by man named Erik until his boss, Nicholai Ivanov, comes in and stops the violence from going any farther…. With a promise to her that he could make her a fighter, a warrior.

Thirteen years later…….  She is a contract killer, an assassin hired out by the Bravta, a queen of her profession, Una Ivanov. The bacio della morte, “kiss of death”.

Her next client, Arnaldo Botticelli, the underboss of the Italian Mafia, is where she meets Nero Verdi who they collectively have a hit against a capo, Lorenzo Santos. The plan though, has Una working directly with Nero, to overthrow his half brother and place him as capo of New York.

When Nero holds her darkest secret as a bargaining tool, they come into an agreement that is mutually beneficial, but one that leaves her uneasy and has a potential to leave her with a mark on her back open to a hunting season with her as a target.

The hunter becomes the hunted and with more at stake than ever before, she runs…

Pushing in to the second half of the book, The hunt starts reaching it’s pinnacle when powerful sources start coming into play, fearing for more than just Her life now, she realizes that no matter what something will be lost along the way. Sacrifices must be given, both physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Well this is a dark, erotic book filled with sensuality and darkness, it’s easy to feel for the characters within. Wonderful writing and this storyline sucked me right in! Between the Italian mafia and the Russian Bravta and the turmoil in between these characters, I couldn’t put the book down!

I’m an assassin of the Bratva, raised and trained to be strong, to be a cold killer. But even I have a weakness, and Nero Verdi will regret using it against me. He’s my enemy, so why do I get such a thrill when his fingers wrap around my throat? Why am I addicted to the brutality of his touch?


They call her The Kiss of Death, and I have the one thing she wants above all else. She’s nothing more than a weapon, a ploy for power, and yet I find myself wanting to dance with death, to possess her. I crave the kiss of her blade just as much as her lips. And that might just get me killed.

A game of power. An obsession that would see the world burn at their feet. A bloodied king. A broken queen.

Kill me or kiss me?
