Assassin Bronwynne St. Just has a knack for finding trouble, usually in the form of a beautiful woman. After fulfilling a haunting contract on her sister’s childhood friend and former employee, she takes off for the Caribbean and business as usual; but danger waits for her in the most unexpected places.
With an endless appetite for luscious variety, Wynne courts danger and pleasure from all corners of the globe. But she must wrestle with her own demons as she trades kisses and blows with some of the deadliest women in the business. She’s been lucky in all her years in the game but will a young woman bent on revenge become her Achilles heel?
It was raining. The smell of damp earth and rain-battered flowers rose up from the garden below to sink into the stone and steel of the large circular balcony where Wynne stood. Alone. From behind, the sound of laughter lifted suddenly above the sensuous base pounding from hidden speakers. The women looked exquisite; moist and hard in leathers, soft and feminine in silks, or dark and inviting in velvets. They could fulfill any fantasy, any decadent wish. For a price. Celeste’s women. Only the very wealthy could afford them, and only the desperate—and in some cases, the desperately bored—became one of them. Wynne’s sister planned it that way: an exclusive supply to meet any demand. Celeste was an enterprising woman, but Wynne knew only too well that she was deadly. A trickster in the clothing of a benevolent.
At midnight the place already reeked of bartered sex and hashish. Wynne hoped she would come soon. It was getting warm and crowded. A woman stumbled out from the party, laughing at the serving girl she pulled roughly along with her. The girl seemed delicate and vulnerable with her violet dress and soft mouth. Her bare arms were bruised, but she didn’t protest. This was just another game to her. Celeste paid her well enough not to fight. The woman dragged her to a corner of the balcony farthest from Wynne, barely ten feet away. She pushed up the skirts of her black dress. Before the girl could sink obediently to her knees, the woman grabbed her hair and pulled her face down into her shaved pussy.
Wynne leaned back against the railing to watch them. The girl’s pretty pink tongue worked the woman’s pussy, darting over the full cunt lips and clit like a hummingbird until she could no longer hold back her moans. She guided the girl with rough pulls of her hair, grunting and gasping when her whore gave her what she paid for, making her come with a muffled shout and a thin spray of cum that caught the girl full in the face. The woman’s eyes met Wynne’s above the servant’s head and Wynne nodded once in acknowledgement. She didn’t stay to see what else the woman had in mind for the girl.
