About Prince of Killers
No indiscriminate killing. No collateral damage. No unvetted targets.
These are the rules Hawes Madigan lives by. Rules that make being Fog City’s Prince of Killers bearable. Soon, he’ll be king—of an organization of assassins—and the crown has never felt heavier. Until the mysterious Dante Perry swaggers into his life.
Dante looks like a rock god and carries himself like one too, all loose-limbed and casually confident. He also carries a concealed weapon, a private investigator’s license, and a message for the prince. Someone inside Hawes’s organization is out to kill the future king.
In the chaos that follows the timely warning, Hawes comes to depend on Dante. On his skills as an investigator, on the steadiness he offers, and on their moments alone when Hawes lets Dante take control. As alliances are tested and traitors exposed, Hawes needs Dante at his back and in his bed. But if the PI ever learns Hawes’s darkest secret, Hawes is sure to get a knife to the heart—and a bullet to the brain—instead.
There’s no shortage of twists and turns in this new romantic suspense trilogy from Layla Reyne. Prince of Killers is book one of three. Fair warning: buckle up, cliffhangers ahead!
“Layla Reyne is an auto-buy author for me. She writes it; I devour it.
Prince of Killers is an amazing start to a new series.
It’s fast-paced and intriguing with the perfect balance of action, passion,
and plot twists I’ve come to expect from her books.
Layla never disappoints, and I can’t wait to see what happens next in her Fog City series.”
– Aimee Nicole Walker, bestselling author of the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries
“Prince of Killers gives us everything we adore about Layla’s writing:
bullets, boys, and betrayal.
From the very first page, Hawes and Dante have sexual tension that sparks off the page.
They don’t trust each other, but they have to work together
to uncover a traitor in their midst.
The result is a steamy dance of push and pull that left me itching for more.
I’m excited to recommend Layla Reyne’s Prince of Killers
and see what’s next in her new Fog City series!”
– Lucy Lennox, bestselling author of the Made Marian and Forever Wilde series
