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.
Gin is back, she is currently in retirement. Running the Pork Pit doesn't give her much excitement, but when 2 college students come in and decide to rob her things take a turn. One of the boys happens to be the son of a local powerful man. No one is coming into Gin’s restaurant. One day a college student comes in asking for the ‘Tin Man’, when seconds later someone shoots at the window in the restaurant. Gin wants to help her any way possible and find out why the girl was asking about the Tin man. So Gin is still in retirement, but very loosely. She is on a mission. Gin is funny, she is one horny girl. She is always eyeballing the opposite sex. It just so happens that hot detective Caine is back and giving Gin hot flashes. This book moves very quickly and I loved it. I find that Gin is starting to become more aware of herself as a person. She isn't just Gin the assassin and I think that is going to be hard for her, but I definitely look forward to the next book. It will be interesting to see her life evolve.
