When Miami drug lord Raul Rodriguez tires of his string of current mistresses, he knows he can’t afford to turn them loose; instead, he commissions his on-call assassin to eliminate them.
Assuming a false identity and affecting a disarming manner, the hit man earns the trust of his victims before terminating them. He relishes playing the chameleon.
But when he finds himself emotionally drawn to his latest target, a woman who says she could easily love him, the assassin faces a dilemma: will he run away with her, hoping to drop off Raul’s radar; or will he execute the very woman he envisions a future with?

As a murderer stalks the city, Charlotte finds herself increasingly concerned about the women in her inner circle. A nosy, vindictive neighborhood snitch and Vasile, her attractive and nocturnal new neighbor, add to Charlotte’s growing list of worries. Can she keep her coven safe and bring it into the modern age?
