Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of…joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.


Contract Signed is a thrilling novel full of mystery, mayhem, and much testosterone.  You combine that with sizzling chemistry and what you have is combustible.

The story starts off introducing the reader to Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh.  Noel is an assassin of extremely bad men.  In the very first scene, Noel is on the job to terminate an evil man.  After the job, he returns to his home on Bainbridge Island where he finds his neighbor, Adeline “Addy” Rose with a baby she claims someone left for him.

The mystery and romance explode from there as Noel starts to melt his heart just when men are trying to kill him.  Addy is in danger, but can Noel be the man he wants to be or is the kill too much of a thrill for him?

First of all, I love the setting of the story.  I do not live very far from there.  It is fun to have a story set right in your backyard.  Second, I enjoyed reading about all the men that work for this mysterious organization.  They are freaking funny. Each carries a different title and job description for which they hold.  I can’t wait to see more on this series.

I would recommend checking out this series.  Add Contract Signed to your TBR list.

Happy Reading!!
