Deacon’s life could be better. Deacon—the Shadow—kills people for a living. He kills people for a living. He’s a choosy assassin, and he makes no bones about his life choices. But a baby…that’s something he knows he’d never conceive of—pun intended. While he’s looking into this baby situation, snarky ex-supermodel Solene Hansen is in trouble. He’s sticking to her 24/7. Before long, he’s learning that there’s a lot more to Solene than sharp words and a gorgeous face. But his enemies are close, and they’ve taken note of his interest. It’ll take all of his talent to keep Solene safe, learn who wants him dead and what the baby has to do with any of it, and figure out how to get Solene to realize that, while he might not be a safe bet, he’ll be a sure one.
