Review by Cholla

Call me Midori.

I’m the last of my kin and bearer of the kitsune-bi, fox-fire eyes. As bearer of the mark, I was born to kill. In fact, I’m so good at killing, my overlord Buntaro entrusts me to spy and eliminate all his enemies. But all that changes when my master orders me to kill a man I nicknamed Gorgeous Cock. His irresistible charm causes me some wanton aches between my thighs, making it difficult for me to execute my duties.

It’s hard to kill your enemy when you fall in love with him…

She is the last of her kind and bred to kill. Beautiful and deadly, Midori always gets her man. Enter her world as she is entrusted with her latest and most challenging task to date.

Never allowed to have a real relationship, Midori is taken aback when a mere dalliance consumes her thoughts. Following along with her as she falls head over heels for her latest target, the reader is exposed to all her deepest thoughts and emotions. Torn between doing her final duty and saving the man she loves, Midori is caught in the worst of places, only to be saved by her quick mind and determination.

Prince Fukuda and Midori make an interesting couple, both being strong willed and independent people. She’s so used to being on her own or looking to her Lord to direct her while he is used to being the one in charge. He is used to being the Lord, although not always ruling with an iron fist. As the adventure takes off, they are drawn closer together, and forced to rely on each other’s skills.

A fast-paced and action-packed story, The Prince and the Assassin doesn’t skimp on the steamy, hot scenes either. If you’re in the mood for a story that will raise your heart rate for more than one reason, this is the book for you.
