Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon.
I'm Gin Blanco.
You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I’m retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren’t aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox. Ever since I agreed to help Violet and her grandfather protect their property from an evil coalmining tycoon, I’m beginning to wonder if I’m really retired. So is Detective Donovan Caine. The only honest cop in Ashland is having a real hard time reconciling his attraction to me with his Boy Scout mentality. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I’m a Stone elemental with a little Ice magic thrown in, but my heart isn’t made of solid rock. Luckily, Gin Blanco always gets her man . . . dead or alive.
My Opinion 4 STARS
This book was good, but it was not as good as the first. I also have a big problem with Donovan Caine. He has become a spineless little twit who can't do what everyone else does for the person they love, they change, or at least don't react like a pansy-assed little girl.
Gin is as strong as ever in her persona and i can understand her concept in not chasing Donovan. If the man were properly sane he should have chased her, not left all the work to Gin.
Loved the Owen angle, i can see him being more of a fixture in the upcoming stories.
A good book
