Assassin By Day
by Tessa Robertson
What would you do if the mystery to your mother’s death lay with your
After years of unanswered questions, Mishka Vald sets out to uncover the
skhodka’s involvement in her past. What she doesn’t expect is to
join forces with men who push her to become a double-agent and
confirm her future. While hunting down leads, the ruthless assassin
realizes a life in the shadows is the only way for her to protect
those she loves.
For Mishka, forbidden love is worth the pain when it comes to Eddie
Harper, a military man turned cop. Her affection waivers when duty
comes first and she joins forces with an elite Russian soldier,
Alexei Petrovich. With a blackmailer threatening her school love, she
seeks refuge with a fellow assassin, Nickolas Volkov. And when pushed
too far, she’s ushered to a secure location…and straight into the
arms of mysterious handyman, Dylan Kain. As the pieces fall into
place, their mangled order reveals each man’s true intention. Whose
deceit can she accept and whose will obliterate her?
All roads lead back to the woman she thought dead—her mother. Now,
weddings are crashed and alliances tested, Mishka uncovers a deadly
game and the players involved. Her heart, once unable to budge, is
thrust into action, but which man can keep her soul intact?

The skhodka isn’t done with their best assassin yet.
Too bad for them, as a rivaling mob – the vory – holds Mishka Vald
captive. The real kicker? She’s trapped in her mother’s clutches
with the two men she loves, with no escape from the devious scheme
Alena Vald cooked up to destroy the skhodka.
After spiriting across the globe with one man in tow, Mishka comes face
face with her past. Piecing together the distorted memories would be
easy if someone hadn’t tampered with them.
Can Mishka slip through the grips of warring Russian mobs for a chance
a normal life? Find out in Catalyst at Night., the sequel to Assassin

Catalyst at Night excerpt:
“Mishka?” His voice is closer. Glancing up from the stain on the floor, I notice he’s
sitting on the side of the bed inches from me.
“Time, Nick. I don’t get much of it these days. It’s why I didn’t come back right away. I
craved time. It’s so much to digest. I can’t accept my memory loss.” I study the bedspread. “I
need it back.”
“You might not remember it, but you agreed to the loss of time and memories, my love.”
I punch the pillow, the conversation annoying me like a zit. “Da. I wish you were
mistaken, but I know you’re not.” I meet his cool blue eyes. God, you can’t fake that hue in a
colored contact. It’s spellbinding.
Nickolas strokes my cheek lightly, his thin calluses comforting. He isn’t an assassin like
me. He’s much more dangerous as the man behind the curtain. “I’m sorry. I wish it didn’t have
to be this way.”
He scoots down the bed and wraps me against his chest. I close my eyes at the rhythmic
tempo of his heart. It soothes me no matter the situation.
“What if there’s a way I can get them back?”
Nickolas brushes my hair away from my face. “There is but it’s not safe.”
“I don’t care. I need them.”
He sighs and tilts my chin, so he can look into my face. His eyes dance between my eyes
and lips. “What if they’re horrible, Mishka? What if they destroy you and the world you know?”
“I can’t think like that.” I shake my head. “My father knows the doctor who can do it.”
His heavy sigh envelopes us both. Slowly, he nuzzles his nose into the nape of my neck.
“I wish you could see that you have everything you need right here, love,” he whispers.
