The Freelancer

Three weeks in Hawaii with his daughter was the plan, but Keanu ‘Skorpion’ Hamari didn’t expect another job with his former handler—or the beautiful complication that came with it.

The Accountant

Good with numbers, Ada Edgar has made a career of keeping the books for the underbelly of society, but when her life is threatened, she’ll have to negotiate with a man no one wants to bargain with—and accept the protection of a ruggedly handsome mercenary intent on making her life miserable.

Welcome to the Den ...

From enemies to lovers and everything in between, they’ll both learn once you’re in the business, there’s no getting out.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


By LilySkorpion’s sting was a lot milder than I anticipated. There’s no hiding the way he earns his keep but he was off the job more than he was on it, if you get my drift!

Skorpion has been summoned by the Kingmaker to take Ada to a safe house until he is told otherwise. Ada has no misgivings as to her predicament, understanding she is more of a prisoner than a guest. As time progresses the lines become blurred not only for Ada but for Skorpion as well.

Ada is awesome and I connected with her character instantly. She plays her cards close, aiming to stay alive and if fate is on her side, one step ahead of the game. When the tension between Ada and Skorpion drops, the story flows effortlessly. The serenity is blissful and their surprise visitor adds to the happy times. Their little corner of Nirvana is short lived and soon the setting changes to a less idyllic one.

All through the upheavals Ada experiences, she adapts and goes with the flow. And while this is going to sound a bit on the crazy side, I was almost a bit lost with everything going so effortlessly. Have no fear, the drama comes but not to the extent I anticipated.

When the final chapter reveals the latest state of play, my heart sunk with dread as to what would be in store for Sin. With total faith in the Kingmaker’s team of mercenaries, I will head into the next book knowing that if anyone can save him, it would be one of the brothers’ mercenaries.

The way the Den of Mercenaries and Wild Bunch series are intricately woven into each other is impressive. While I enjoyed Ada and Skorpion’s romance, I can’t wait for the return of the spine chilling action I’ve become accustomed to with London Miller’s writing.
