An innocent woman. An assassin with a conscience. A deadly attraction.
Although Anna Winter doesn’t fit the profile, Nathanial ‘Wolf' Thornton can’t be sure she isn’t the woman he’s supposed to assassinate without getting a closer look.
Once he discovers his cover’s been blown, his options are limited: walk away or watch an innocent woman suffer the consequences.
A slave to his conscience, Wolf decides to take Anna along for the ride of her life…all the while battling his desire for her.
Where do I even begin? I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading, Moving Target. I have read some of Rosalie Stanton’s paranormal work, and I must say she is in her element when writing contemporary romance.
Anna is trying to start over after losing her job and hiding from an ugly truth. When her best friend drags her to a bar for some much needed unwinding, she meets Wolf, the man that has been secretly watching her for weeks.
What unfolds next is a wild ride to stay alive, while battling an array of emotions, from fear to passion.
Moving Target fulfills a fantasy for a lot of women; a professional hitman is hired to kill you, but can’t go through with it because of an unexplainable attraction. Of course, it goes deeper for Wolf because he’s sick and tired of his dark life, and is drawn to the sweet goodness of Anna. The premise was more of a pull than the actual plot, but the writing, and character development, made Moving Target a great read.
Rosalie Stanton impressed me with her perfect mix of action, emotion and dialogue. The sex scenes were well written, unrushed and nicely balanced. I read this book in two sittings because of the intense sexual tension between our hero and heroine, the suspense wound into the plot, and the smooth, flowing writing.
If you want a quick, intense read, with a very likeable heroine, sexy badboy hero, and sweet love story…then I highly suggest you pick up Moving Target as soon as it’s released! You won’t be disappointed.
