Chosen when a child, Lady Kathryn is trained to be a ruthless killer. She is destined to be the English king's assassin and protector. Only he and the guild master are supposed to know. It's a life and death secret that must be kept.

For an assassin survival is precarious. Life is something you simply cannot take for granted because the next day is never granted. Despite her privileged up-bringing, Kathryn quickly learned how to survive on her own and to never trust a soul while following the Guild without question.

Upon her return to England a murderous plot against King Aldrich is discovered. Kathryn is shocked when she finds out who the fiend is. She's even more shocked when the King proposes marriage, a lot. An assassin has never married her king before. The last one who fell in love had her tongue ripped out and was burned alive.

Letting her emotions cloud her judgment, Kathryn falls for the king and agrees to the marriage, jeopardizing not only his life but her own. Disobeying the Guild means death. Now she must figure out how to keep them both alive and not piles of smoldering ash.

My new cover is a big thanks to @Marveler_!

Not even at the end of the first chapter and I know enough about this woman to be a little shocked that she would choose a simple necklace

It is lovely in France, I used to go there quite often for a holiday but now I don't and I miss it a lot heh
I love how accurate it is, though it may be frustrating it is true

It's also meant to break a few ribs here and there, it's not natural
I keep picturing Katherine from TBD when she 1st met Stefan 😅
Nothing says 'I'm ready for marriage and motherhood' like a broken rib cage. 😂
