I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector…a killer…I am Noah Blake.
There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am…an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore…usually.
It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak … shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.
But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else…
And I’m not allowed to kill this one.
I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector … a killer … I am Noah Blake.
And now that she knows my secret, she hates me.
The guilt and shame I carry around is bad enough … But seeing the distrust in her eyes—that will kill me before my enemies do …
He is the thing that goes bump in the night. He is a liar, a protector…a killer… He is Noah Blake.
…And I love him. Everything I thought I knew about the night that changed our lives has been turned upside down. I have no idea who to trust, but the one thing I do know is that I am his…
And I will do anything to protect him.
Five years ago my brother was killed right in front of me and I was forced to make a decision that has haunted me ever since. I lost one protector but I gained another. Noah has always taken care of me.
Then I find out that he’s keeping secrets.
