Promo and Excerpt: LUCKY'S CHARM by Jenn Nixon

Today we have a very special promo and excerpt of Jenn Nixon's Lucky's Charm. I can't wait to get a chance to read this newest book by Jenn!

Excerpt from Lucky's Charm

Things get complicated for Lucky as her feelings for Kenji bubble to the surface…

“I’m not…good at this anymore.” Lucky puffed out a heavy breath and clutched the phone. “I can’t wrap my mind around it. I’ve really tried to forget you.”
“Because, I can’t want…this.”
“What do you mean?”
“Be with someone while doing what I do. Sharing my life… I haven’t for a long time. I don’t see how I can do it with—”
“Another killer?”
That stopped her cold. Lucky shut her eyes and banged her head against the wall. Not only was it the oddest conversation she’d ever have, it frightened her because he was dead on.
“Why add to the torment?” she snapped.
“Being with you was far from torture.” His reply was husky and saturated with innuendo. Lucky ignored the ripples of electricity on her skin.
“We’re not good people, Kenji. I’ve already accepted that, but I think you’ve still got blinders on.”
“No, I have a sense we are more alike than you realize. I know why you eliminated McKowen. He was a vile man.”
“Yeah… We might be the bad guys, but we’re never the villains.” Lucky softened her tone. “We’re not heroes either, just stuck in the middle somewhere.”
“This is what we do, not who we are. It does not change what happened between us. We should not ignore this.”
“I don’t know….” The contact with him did something to her, but finding the words to explain it seemed impossible. Lucky did want to see him again, though, not for all the right reasons.
“Where are you, right now?”
“Miami,” he said immediately. “Let me come to you, wherever you wish.”
“I….” The confusion twisted through her. He was determined without being forceful.
“The choice is yours. Call me after you complete your task,” he said without demand.

To protect her family and find a killer, Felicia “Lucky” Fascino assumed her adoptive father’s identity and joined the network, an organization of moral assassins to finish the job he began. Eliminating the man responsible for murdering her mother has consumed her for the last five years. While keeping her Uncle Stephen and cousin Elizabeth at arm’s length, Lucky begins to feel the weight of her career choice and reclusive lifestyle. Then a chance encounter with an enigmatic hit man, during one of her jobs, turns into a provocative and dangerous affair. Distracted by the secret trysts with Kenji Zinn and mounting tension within her family, Lucky makes reckless mistakes that threaten her livelihood and almost claim her life.

Loved the excerpt, and the cover is rocking, too. :-) Love Jenn's eclectic writing nature (adding thriller aspects to sic-fi, etc.), some of my favorite stories are genre benders.

Thanks EJ, genre mashing is fun...though I'm not sure about those historical/horror ones!
