Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, coldhearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London.
But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him feel again. Now he will do anything to save her life, so he can claim her as his own....
When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter's arms may be her only path to safety - even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store....

Darkest Before Dawn, by Maya Banks ... Hancock is another Villain/Hero. Personally I like these type of men. They fight evil the only way they know how, single-handed. They give no quarter, trust no one, & are totally shocked to learn they have a heart.
When Christopher Argent was begging Millie to wake and he proceeds to spill his heart to her.
If only I could. But I've already listened to it three times this year.
I cried for the boy who lost his Mother. I got caught up in the thrill of the hunt. I feared for the damsel in distress. Finally, I loved the man who found his way to the light.
It was a very good read. Liked the hero's character though an unlikely one for a romance book. KB did a fabulous job showing how he became a respectable man and made it very believable. Tough job well done. The villain's character was a bit predictable as to whom it was but don't let that deter you. Still a lovely romance.
well drawn characters, interesting plot, good heat. Better than most historical romances I've read recently.
