Scarlet Mark by Lexi C. Foss is the 8th installment of the Cavalieri Della Morte Series but can be read as a standalone! Lexi Foss is another new-to-me author and from my understanding, she mostly writes paranormal romance so Scarlet Mark was her FIRST venture into the dark romantic suspense genre! I am absolutely amazed by how flawlessly she executed this book! The writing was fabulous, the pace was perfect and because this book was a little longer then some of the others have been, the characters were really well developed, the suspense aspect and build up were executed perfectly. Seriously this was a total 5 star read for me and I would most definitely give more stars if I could! Told in dual POV.
Scarlet Mark is Killian and Amara’s story.
Killian ‘Dagger’ Bedivere, one of the 12 assassins of the Tabella Della Morte ran by Arthur Calthorpe. Killian’s specialty is mingling with the worlds elite while still blending into the shadows and finding those who don’t want to be found. When Killian gets his assignment, to find and return the U.S senators fiancé who ran off with half his bank account and left him humiliated at the altar, he assumes no problem, how hard can it be to track down one con woman?
Killian quickly finds that Amara Rose is anything but easy and his task is going to be a lot harder than he originally thought. But at last, after a few weeks, he finally finds her… in one of the last places he would have expected.
“Definitely not a meek damsel, no. But a confident woman with a cruel streak. My kind of mark. My kind of toy.”
Amara ‘Scarlet’ Rose was groomed to become the woman she is. She knows no other way of life. Amara has FINALLY escaped from the hell that she’s called home and she will do anything not to go back.
Killian knows something isn’t right… Amara Rose may be a seductress but she’s no con woman, she’s a woman running for her life. There’s something about the Senator’s story that just doesn’t add up. Now Killian’s left wondering… is his mark innocent?
Killian has to choose, does he believe the word of Amara?
Or does he complete the job and turn her over to the Senator?
You’ll have to read Scarlet’s Mark to find out!
“He wasn’t my knight. He wasn’t my savior. He was merely Killian. My Killian.”
OMFG, I absolutely loved Scarlet Mark! I swear this series just gets better and better and I am loving it! Yes, there are a few dark scenes, but the way it’s written is actually pretty tame compared to other dark reads. I don’t have any complaints, there is a warning, so if you aren’t into that type of stuff then don’t read it. 😉
Killian is one of my favorite assassins! He’s a total badass and most definitely has a certain kink but he is one of a kind! The way he loves Amara and is so connected to her and able to give her exactly what she needs when she needs it *sigh* I’m really enjoying seeing all these badass men brought to their knees for the woman that need them, but yet still continuing to be their badass selves.
“Sir Bedivere. My dark night. My version of a hero. My… love.”
Amara, that girl is a survivor! The hell she has been through since she was 16 years old… But watching her grow and break out from the mold that she had been made into under the care and guidance of Killian was nothing short of amazing! She’s sexy and feisty and everything that I want to see in a heroine.
That ending, I’m not going to spoil it but again, PERFECT! Although there is no cliffhanger, I definitely feel like there could be more to Killian and Amara’s story, and I for one would absolutely LOVE to read it!
“Maybe that was what brought us close together-the fact that we surpassed all expectations and chose our own routes. Me, an assassin. Her, a warrior. The perfect pairing.”
These two together, HOLY CHEMISTRY! They couldn’t be more opposites if they tried but yet it’s clear as day from the very beginning that they have major chemistry! The sex scenes, HOLY HOTNESS! These two didn’t even have to be having sex for the scenes to melt your screen! 🔥🔥🔥
I LOVED getting to see Niko from Cora Kenborn‘s installment, Darkest Deeds. Darkest Deeds is one of my top favorites from this series so that was a huge plus for me!
The best part of this series for me has been being introduced to so many AMAZING authors that otherwise I may not have checked out, I’m not very big on paranormal BUT I will be checking out more of Lexi’s work and I most definitely hope she continues to write more in this genre!
The writing was excellent, the pace was perfect, there are so many twists that you won’t even see them coming, I HIGHLY recommend Scarlet’s Mark!
“He found me. Held me captive. But I captured the most valuable item of all-the heart of an assassin. Of my assassin. And I would never be letting him go.”
