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.
Content warning, explicit sex, language, exhibitionism.
Nathan (Wolf) Thornton is the best in the business. Unfortunately for Anna Winter, she is now his business, and he’s a paid assassin. Wolf smells something rotten about this assignment though, Anna just reeked of wholesome innocence, and not the dark virulent bitchiness he’d been told to expect.
Moving Target is a fun, sexy and quick read about saving a lost bad boy. Wolf may be the hero of the story but it’s really Anna who does the saving. Aside from the paint peeling monkey sex, this is more a story of redemption than suspense. Nathan/Wolf just cries out to a woman’s heart…..”Save meeeeee” Who can resist that? Anna doesn’t even try. Engaging characters, hot sex, and witty dialogue, all combine for a tasty little quickie in this story. There is one exchange between Anna and Wolf about who’s name was worse that literally had me laughing out loud. I always find Ms. Stanton’s writings enjoyable, be they long or short, and this was no exception. Excellent work at keeping the streak alive.
