A Reluctant Assassin by JC Morrows

A Reluctant Assassin (Order of the MoonStone, #1)Book Description:
Her mission was simple — get close to the Prince, and kill him. . .

Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.

Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife . . . but due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.

And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him...

My Thoughts:
This is a great start to a new series.  Kayden is on a mission.  This is a different mission than she is used to.  She must convince the Prince that she is the girl for him and then kill him.  Dvarius is the prince she is to kill and is immediately attracted to her.  He must choose a bride from the twenty-five ladies his advisers have chosen but they would like him to choose any of them but Kayden.  What neither of them knows is there is someone else with a mission all their own and Kayden's heart may become compromised in the process.
I absolutely loved Dvarius.  He is a strong young man, but he isn't certain how to handle Kayden.  Kayden is a good person who has done plenty wrong to survive.  Still she is good at what she does and doesn't always follow orders.  I think under all the tough exterior she has to show the world is a good heart.  I loved Dvarius' best friend and Catherine as well.  The ending has me wanting the next book in this series now!
5/5 for me.  I cannot wait to read more and find out what happens next to these characters.

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
