Can you believe it's already the first day of July? Half the year has gone by, and it seems that with every day that passes, we're all getting busier and busier. That's why breaks mean so much more - and what better than downing copious doses of fantastic excerpts while visiting the peeps from the Six Sentence Sunday list?
After June being dedicated to my 1NS story, I come back to my Corpus Brides series today. Do you guys still remember Rayne aka Kali? Elite operative of the clandestine Corpus agency, she is on a mission to rid the world of one of its worst ever criminals, Russian mobster Nikolai Grigorievskiy. To get close to him to gather intel and eventually kill him, Kali has wormed her way into his entourage and his life as Irina, a young call girl from Moscow... whom Nikolai married soon after she lured him to her bed.
The plan was to kill Nikolai and not leave any trace behind. Standard job for Kali... except that, on this mission, she has come face to face with the man she never stopped loving - Ash Gilfoy. Since meeting again, Kali/Rayne is doubting her ability to be a remorseless assassin.
She's facing Nikolai in the living room of their summer residence in Nice, on the night she is supposed to do away with him. Can she go ahead with this mission?
Would he be so relaxed if he knew Interpol and the local police of every European country would storm through every one of his operations' locations in the next hour? With Nikolai and Boris dead, no one would stand in their way.
Nikolai trusted her, and for a second, she faltered—she knew that man intimately, knew every secret corner of his mind. He hadn't always been the bad guy, circumstances, and extreme poverty after the collapse of communism, made him what he was today; he also loved with all his heart, cherished his wife, and desired a family, above all else.
Nikolai is a criminal; what am I thinking?
The kill —she had to do it....'
