Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon.
I'm Gin Blanco.
You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I’m retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren’t aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox. Ever since I agreed to help Violet and her grandfather protect their property from an evil coalmining tycoon, I’m beginning to wonder if I’m really retired. So is Detective Donovan Caine. The only honest cop in Ashland is having a real hard time reconciling his attraction to me with his Boy Scout mentality. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I’m a Stone elemental with a little Ice magic thrown in, but my heart isn’t made of solid rock. Luckily, Gin Blanco always gets her man . . . dead or alive.
Gin Blanco is one of those bad ass chicks that I admire. Even though she has been adamant about being retired she can’t help but help this family. They have no idea the force they are dealing with, and she intends to take that person out.
Caine drove me crazy in the first book, and he continues to do the same in this book. This guy can’t see that there is a gray area in the world. He doesn’t want to get mixed up in the affairs of Gin, or the Spider. But he has known the Fox’s for a long time, and wants to make sure they are okay.
I’ve never understood why Gin is so stuck on this guy, and she constantly questions how he sees her. She knows she isn’t going to change but it still hurts that he gives her a look of horror at times.
I’ve always love the relationship Gin has with Finn. He’s probably the best brother a girl can have and she knows she can depend on him for whatever she needs help with.
I enjoyed this installment and am ready to jump into the next adventure Gin has.
