When he bids their young housemaid to kill a man who threatens his business, Synthia’s maternal instincts take over, and she commits the heinous deed herself.
Now there’s another business enemy… and her former beau wants him dead. But the new cotton farmer has revived Synthia’s long-forgotten passions.
With blood on her hands already, Synthia is prepared to kill again. But who? The new business partner for her daughter’s sake, or her greedy lover for morality and freedom?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Firstly a special thank you to Haven Cage and Xpresso Tours for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.
This book opens up with such imagination and spark. How Cage sets the scene while still describing like your there, your the one experiencing all this. I was instantly swept away into the story. How our lovely Synthia is entangled in her ex, Edison, who she can’t shake but is also her employer acting as a assassin. Poor girl doing a job that will surely hurt her with a man whom still wants her sexually while she rather leave him be.
Then there is Tula, I much like her little self like a sweet child watching after Synthia and working under Edison. This sweet child willing to do anything for her Synthia whom she does not want to be without. I completely understand, while not exactly a child dear Tula is but this is what I imagine I would feel towards my best friends if i saw them being used as Synthia is.
And the poor guy, Salis, falling head over heels for Synthia and was taken aback the first time he saw her- where the story begins- almost like a fairy tail from how he remembered it. Then how they finally come into the same scene together.. Like omg no! I couldn’t believe my eyes but it was the appropriate thing to do when coming onto a scene like that. I know I would of.
THEN the ending.. omg I wanted to cry when Tula was given the estate and her freedom upon you know whose death! then the prolouge after the last chapter. Oh such happiness and warmth. I love it!
Highly, HIGHLY recommend.
