Product Description

Killer of Kings, 6

Is the devil capable of love?

Xavier doesn't do trust. He breaks. He kills. After living through hell, he's transformed himself into El Diablo, the baddest motherfucker around. His only weakness is the sister he lost as a child—the one Boss promises to help him locate. The only catch is he has to work for Killer of Kings and learn to play nice with the other hitmen. He does his job, determined to prove himself. Then she walks into his life, and nothing is ever the same.

Alesha hits the jackpot when she's hired as Xavier Moreno's house cleaner. She has her own private suite, and the wealthy businessman is rarely home. Things change in a heartbeat when he comes home drunk one night, covered in blood, and telling her stories about murder-for-hire and a secret group of assassins. He also reveals a side so broken that she can't help but fall for him. Can a killer fall in love with his cleaner, or will he add her to his hit list?

Be Warned: public exhibition

 

Excerpt:

Alesha woke up with a start.

Blinking the sleep from her eyes, she frowned as she heard the noise again. Something was moving downstairs.

The sound of banging and glass breaking drew her out from the bed. Wearing a pair of pajamas, she was in no way suited to deal with a potential intruder. Xavier said she would be safe here. Grabbing the baseball bat that she took with her to every place she stayed, she opened her bedroom door.

This was the first time an intruder had invaded her home.

Xavier’s home.

Not her home.

She only worked here. Just a housekeeper. The woman he kept to keep his life in line and perfectly neat. She cooked, cleaned, and ran the errands he asked for.

She was nothing more than a woman that blended into his life like a piece of furniture. Alesha was a couch.

Pain slashed through her at the thought of how little she meant to him. Not that she was supposed to mean anything to him. He was her boss. Nothing more, nothing less.

Getting to the stairs, she winced as they creaked beneath her weight.

When no one jumped out of her and she figured she was safe, she took the steps slowly, bracing herself against what she might face.

What if it was like out of a horror movie and they were wearing a scary mask and wielding a knife that would slash her into a thousand pieces? Or this was only a dream and she was about to be torn to bits by a man with knives for fingers? Note to self, never ever watch old seventies and eighties horror films before bed. She hated scary movies so much, but once they were playing, she needed to know what happened next.

Get a grip.

Once she cleared the stairs, she squeezed the bat tighter.

She’d never been good at baseball.

Stepping down the hall, she walked into the dining room where she saw a large shadow. She screamed and swung the bat, hitting something. The intruder didn’t stop though. Lifting the bat, she drew it back about to hit him again when he caught the bat and pulled it from her grip.

Before she knew what was happening, the intruder tugged her into his arms, holding her still. She screamed and fought with all of her might, but whoever had her knew what they were doing.

She couldn’t go anywhere.

He was so strong.

She was going to die.

She didn’t want to die.

There was still so much for her to do. Become a mother, a wife, know what really good sex was like.

“Will you fucking stop wriggling, woman? You’re going to hurt yourself or me or both of us.”

She froze.

That was Xavier’s voice.

Her boss.

Oh shit.

“That’s right. You’re hitting your fucking boss and all I was doing was grabbing a drink. If I let you go, promise you won’t try any of your deadly moves?”

She nodded. No longer struggling. There was no way she could use words right now.

What if she’d killed her boss? What if he sued her?

He paid her a good wage but not enough to take him on in court. Would she need a good lawyer? It would be bad enough losing this job.

Xavier flicked on the light.

She blinked a few times to get accustomed to the sudden brightness. When she did, she froze into place.

Xavier wore a white shirt and a pair of black pants. His feet were bare.

He held a bottle of whiskey in one hand.

He’d only been holding her with one arm?

The bat she’d been using for her attack lay on the ground at his feet.

“Fuck, is that how you greet every man that enters this house?” he asked.

She glanced down at her body and quickly crossed her arms over her chest.

“Nice tits. You don’t need to hide them. It’s not like I haven’t seen it all before. Believe me, there’s not much in this world I haven’t seen.”

His talk about her breasts was not what had her frozen in place.

The blood on his shirt was the reason. That and the scars she’d caught a glimpse of.

His back was to her right now as he poured some ice into a glass then added the whiskey.

Still rooted in place, she watched as he lifted the glass to his lips. “Want one?”

She shook her head. Words failed her. What was she to say?

    I have enjoyed the killer of kings series. Now i wonder if she will give the boss his story. Xavier foind the love of his life under his own roof.. The Boss's reaction to her was different? Is there a story behind that.


  3. EL DIABLO 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2018

    It was a while experiencing King of Killers worlds. I missed it. And we have El Diablo here. So, going in I wasn't sure what expect from Xavier aka El Diablo. Sure we meet him in previous book, but it's not always the case 'what you see is what you get'. Though I have to say, the saying is almost true in this case. Xavier just have a bit more to him. Something I haven't expected. Self-hate. I'm not sure if this is the right word. While he enjoys his work, he isn't so okay with what he sees when he looks in the mirror. While he wasn't 'a good man' in the past, but then he did what he needed to do to survive. It was a jungle law. Survival of the fittest.
    But while he sees himself as something not worthy of light, Alesha saw someone loving worthy.
    I had conflicting feelings about Alesha. She really had good moments, where she made me smile and happy with her actions. But... I guess for her it was normal to have conflicting feelings about Xavier and his world. Learning what he does and still to have feelings for him, it may felt wrong for her. Okay, I was happy that she didn't panicked and run away screaming. Lol. So, I think I had more problem how she reacted/acted in his world. Once again her reaction wasn't exactly bad, it just wasn't what I personally liked.
    And then there was one 'WTF?' moment, when my conflict ended. Alesha... She probably watched Wonder Woman recently, otherwise I don't know what she was thinking. Idiot comes to my mind thinking about it.
    And because of it I felt like she wasn't good fit for Xavier. Okay, this sounded like I'm talking about shoes. But you know what I mean. Of course, people learn from mistakes. But sometimes they don't. And in El Diablo world mistakes can be deadly. Let's hope Alesha is a quick learner if she wants to have forever with Xavier.

    This series is one of my favorites and I eagerly awaited this book! Both authors did an awesome job as always bringing another swoon worthy alpha assassin to life. El Diablo is definitely one of my new favorite alpha assassins!

  7. Awesome Story 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2018

    Xavier is an assassin for a secret group of hire to kill men. He doesn't do romance or love or all that stuff. His one goal is to find his sister who he lost when their mom sold them as kids. This is the next book in this series and I think I like this one the best so far. He hires Alesha to be his housekeeper and things go okay for awhile until one night, in a drunken episode, Alesha finds out what he does. There are twists and turns in this story that kept me turning the pages. Can Xavier afford to start a relationship with Alesha or will Boss stop it? And what happens when Alesha is hurt and taken away by Boss? Oh, this book was great. If you like books with men on the hard side of life, this should be right up your alley. Will Xavier ever see Alesha again? Will he find his long lost sister? What is Boss keeping from him? Oh, I"m not gonna say but advise you to just get the book and find out for yourself!!!
