In the same pulse-pounding style as Maya Banks and Kresley Cole, New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair delivers a sizzling erotic romance about a sexy billionaire who’s on the run—and the hit-man-turned-handyman who’s supposed to kill her.
Sex with a stranger. Learn to drive. Learn to cook. Learn to pole dance. Sex under the stars. Buy a truck. These are just a few of the things on Amelia Wentworth’s bucket list, but as the CEO and face of a multi-billion-dollar cosmetic empire, she’s never quite found the time to do them.
Until, after a series of accidents, Amelia discovers that someone wants her dead. But who? And why? She has no time for questions as she changes her name to Mia, buys a secluded fixer-upper near the Louisiana bayou where no one will recognize her, and starts checking things off her bucket list like there’s no tomorrow—which there might not be.
Meanwhile, Cruz Barcelona is a hit man who’s promised himself this will be his last job. Then he’ll take the money and move to a warm, sunny place where he doesn’t have to hide anymore. But when Cruz goes undercover to Mia’s ramshackle house, he starts to realize there’s far more to this poor-little-rich-girl than he thought—and he starts to fall for her. Which is going to make his job a whole lot harder…
In Cherry Adair’s Blush, we meet a hot hitman with a change of heart. Cruz Barcelona has one very important rule about his targets; he refuses to kill anyone who doesn’t deserve it. The dossier he received about Amelia Wellington-Wentworth was appalling, including everything from sweatshops in China to a child pornography ring. He fact checks every thing on his own, and his findings were in line with the dossier. It wasn’t that hard to track Amelia/Mia, and she made it very easy for him by just inviting him in her house. However, the woman he has encountered and the woman in the dossier don’t match. For the first time, Cruz’s instincts are telling him something is off, and this may buy miss Mia a few more days while he figures some things out.
