Kiile's men capture her. He sees an opportunity to learn who is behind the endeavors to kill him. Kiile as an Argon is legendary when it comes to sex and plans to use that prowess to obtain the truth from his prisoner. However, she fails to react to him like all women do. He learns that she received a sex suppressant to insure she would not just lay down her arms to be in his arms. Alas he will have to be patient to seduce the facts from his cute little pixie, but the hold her master has on her might prove stronger than his most sensual skills.

LOVE'S SWEET ASSASSIN is an exhilarating sword and romance science fiction thriller that never slows down until the final confrontation between the hero and the villain. The story line is action packed whether the subplots are intrigue or romance. As always in Angela Verdenius' great novels, the lead couple enchants the audience and the support cast brings to life various races and worlds. If you have not tried a Ms. Verdenius book, you are missing out on a sure thing.
