My Review of Poison Kisses, Part 1
I knew I would love this story, but I didn’t expect to fall head over heels in love with it. Nevertheless, I couldn’t help myself. I’m addicted. Again. Poison Kisses is a perfect mix of heart-pounding suspense, intrigue, and raw passion, interwoven with powerful themes of trust, betrayal, forgiveness and second chances. It delivers on every level.
If you’ve read Lisa’s Dirty Money Series, you’ll recognize the hero as Seth Cage, Shane Brandon’s enigmatic bodyguard, a former CIA agent with a formidable skill-set. If like me, you wanted to know more about what makes Seth tick, specifically what made him the man he is, Poison Kisses Part 1 will answer many of those questions, and again, leave you wanting more (to be delivered in Parts 2 and 3).
Poison Kisses draws Seth back to the CIA for a special assignment: to track down and possibly kill the one woman he ever loved, another former agent who abandoned him in an operation gone wrong a few years before. However, she’s not just any woman; she’s called the Poison Princess for a reason, and she’s got a killer skill-set of her own. Lingering anger, grief, and sense of betrayal drive them apart; but their explosive chemistry, coupled with remnants of their long-ago love and a thread of hope draws them together. Honestly, it could go either way at any moment, and that’s part of the breath-taking thrill of their journey.
The current mission forces them to work together to find and interrupt a mass-casualty terrorist plot before it’s too late. But the other important question is whether or not it’s too late to keep their tragic past from destroying one or both of them along the way. The possibility of death hangs over their every move. A near-desperate sense of urgency to uncover the truth sets a relentless pace that keeps the characters–and the reader–on edge from start to finish.
Poison Kisses is a series of three novellas that may be read as their own standalone story or, as companions to the utterly amazing Dirty Money series. Each of the first two books will temporarily leave you hanging–but relief is in sight. The three novellas will be released back-to-back later this month, and trust me, you do NOT want to miss a single word.
POISON KISSES – PART TWO
Release Date: February 13, 2018
I loved her. She left me. She betrayed me but now it’s time to open the closed doors. I’ll tell her my secret if she tells me hers. Our history is more than lies. It’s our story, and I will do whatever it takes to reveal it all. I’m the Assassin, She’s The Poison Princess. We’re going to kill the bad guys, but we’re still deciding if we’re enemies. The one thing for certain, is we’re both going to strip down and get bare.

POISON KISSES – PART THREE
Release Date: February 20, 2018
Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you. Now that I know what Seth hid from me, I want the secret to be the lie. I don’t want to kill him. I don’t want to leave him. I guess that’s why they say there is a fine line between love and hate. I love and hate that man with such passion, that it damn near hurts. But now, as we face down our shared enemies, as we are lead right back to an explosive discovery about my family, and to the night Seth and I parted ways, we will both be exposed in every way. And it’s time for me to decide if I plan to love Seth Cage for the rest of my life, or kill him, before he kills me.

“I hate you, Seth Cage,” she proclaims in what I know to be an out-of-character emotional outburst that tells me I’ve rattled her.
And earns her my cool reply. “There’s a fine line between love and hate, sweetheart,” I say, but I don’t want her to hate me and it pisses me off. What is it about this woman that makes her my weakness? “I wonder if I missed the taste of poison on your lips, or did I just choose to ignore it?” And I need to know that answer. I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue sliding into her mouth, rough, angry, but she doesn’t respond. She doesn’t even touch me, and I won’t allow her that win. I fold her against me, cupping the back of her head, my tongue licking against hers until she finally fucking moans, and responds.
And damn it, she still tastes just as good as she did, just as right when she’s wrong, but at least I know now. Everything right about this woman will always be wrong, including the moment she bites my lips, drawing blood. “I still hate you,” she hisses.
Wiping my lip, I’m wildly aroused by what just happened, which proves how fucked in the head this woman makes me. And while I’m certain we’d both be more than comfortable with the idea of me pulling her skirt up and fucking her right now, and letting her think she’s manipulating me again, that has to wait until I have her someplace to myself. I release her, snatching up her gun and shoving it under my jacket, inside my holster. “Meet me at the south exit. If you aren’t there, I’ll kill you and then move on to Plan B and kill Franklin. And yes. This is a test. Pass it or you’ll be in my bed, in handcuffs for the rest of your life.”
“You said you’d kill me.”
“After I cuff you to my bed.”
I move to the door and exit into the staff hallway, and then the main school hallway, the scent of her, sweet jasmine, clinging to my skin. Damn it, I used to love that smell.
I’m halfway to the exit when suddenly she’s beside me. “As I know you know from whatever file they gave you on me,” she says without looking at me, “I watched people die because of that man in China seven years ago when he set off poison gas in the subway. I’m not sitting back while he does it again.”
I don’t reply. I just keep walking, but now she’s by my side again, as she was for three solid months, three years ago. Her words and actions are reminding me of what I’d found so damn appealing about this woman: her conviction and her moral compass that were greater than mine, that made her too good for me, and yet, made me want her all the more. Only, it was an act, a façade maintained even now and well. She’s an enemy in an uncomfortable alliance. I don’t believe a word she has said.
We reach the exit and I pause with her directly to my right, my eyes capturing hers. “You’re with me now and no one gets to take you from me. And I’m the only one who gets to kill you.”
“You’re so damn romantic,” she says. “No wonder I missed you.”
“You missed me, sweetheart?”
“That wasn’t literal.”
My lips curve. “And yet you kissed me like you missed me.”
