From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood.

I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong. Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.
But everything comes with a price, especially second chances for a man like me.
Killing for her was easy. It was living for her that turned out to be the hard part.

Author’s Note: This is a full-length romance novel. It’s not a super-dark read, no trigger warning. Explicit violence and hot sex included. HEA, no cheating.


Dark Protector is a thrilling standalone story about a hit man that falls for a florist.

This was my second Celia Aaron book, and I was not surprised when I couldn’t put it down! This book has it all: suspense, action, surprises (so many surprises!) and a sweet, strong and steamy love.

Conrad Mercer is a professional killer and he is the best at what he does. He is lethal, focused and cold. But then he sees Charlie, a florist with a tough past. He watches her every day from behind the tinted windows of his car, knowing he is not good for her, but not being able to stay away.

Charlie knows she’s being watched, and instead of feeling scared, she feels protected. If only this mysterious man would get out of the car and show his face. . . I loved Dark Protector! It was well written, entertaining, funny (hey there, Nate!) and sexy! The characters are so captivating! Charlie is a badass heroine (which is always a plus!) and Conrad stole my heart on the very first chapter.

And let’s not forget Nate: a secondary character that stole the scene so many times with his loyalty and the ability to never shut his mouth. He is the reason I laughed so much with this story. Celia, you better give him a book of his own! #JustSayin
