Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Thorne Hollow knows the power he holds over the opposite sex and how to use it. Cast out by the gods thousands of years ago, he roams the earth working as an assassin for The Sicarii, a secret society who protects humans from all of the things that go bump in the night. One night stands are his way of life ... until he meets a mysterious woman whose intriguing power compels him to uncover more about her and the strange magic she wields. Completed Hired Gun Serial.


Thorne is a bad ass that's also a hired assassin. He also happens to be immortal and half God. he's been booted from the realm as punishment. His time on earth has been long and time drags for him. The only thing keeping him sane is his involvement in the Sicarii society, his best friend, and his womanizing. When he gets involved with a witch she knocks out his last sanity saver.

"The Chameleon" that's what Thorne has dubbed his witch. Why? He knows nothing else about her information wise. Sexually? Well that is a completely different story and that is combustible. She makes him want to go against his rules and he doesn't know why. She puts him on a complete mind trip. When he finds the answers as to why, he suffers a completely different type of obstacle.

This is a great paranormal series with a new spin on an old group of characters. The story is inventive and highly enjoyable. The characters are steamy and at times crass. That's what makes them so great. The story has a great pace and keeps your interest from the beginning to the end. It's full of funny moments.  I love Nike's character in it. She's sarcastic at every moment she can be. The ending surprised me. I thought it was going to go a completely different way. I definitely recommend this series and can't wait to see the next books for the rest of the cast.
