Published: Minotaur Books, 3/2012
Readers seeking a fast-paced exciting series with a tough heroine with a soft spot in her heart for her adopted dog, meet Anna Smith, nee Anya Danielovich. Anya was a trained assassin working for the former Yugoslavian secret service, who faked her own death after a particularly distasteful assignment, and has been leading a quiet nomadic life in the US. As Anna, she keeps to herself, never getting too close to anyone – coworkers, the cute guy at the laundromat, etc. When she is attacked at a San Francisco animal shelter, her rescuer is an assassin sent to fill a contract on her head – who wants to keep her alive long enough to figure out who shot at her before he could. Anna, hired gun Nick Dare, and Lenny, her dog, plus an arsenal combining high tech weaponry and improvised tools, are in a race to discover who wants her dead besides her former colleagues. Who, by the way, take lethal exception to Nick's failure to fulfill his contract on Anna. A high-adrenaline romp for fans of romantic suspense.
