COVER REVEAL: The Accidental Assassin by Nichole Chase
The Accidental Assassin
by Nichole Chase
Coming Late Summer 2013
Ava McKenzie is a creature of habit.
Life is passing her by and she has nothing to show for it. She’s had the same
job since she started college, she orders the same dish every time she goes to
her favorite restaurant, and she only reads books from authors she knows. There
is nothing new or surprising in her life… until her best friend marries a man
from London. When her newlywed friend asks her to house-sit in England while
she honeymoons, Ava jumps at the chance. This could be the very thing she needs
to shake up her life. Ava throws herself headfirst into her new lifestyle; she
wants to try everything, go everywhere, and never get stuck in a rut again. Of
course, offing a man in a car garage hadn’t been one of the things on her list
Owen Walker spends every day in a new
place with a new mission. As one of the most renowned assassins in the world,
he has his choice of marks—and he’s never failed to complete a task. When a new
hit takes him back to his hometown, he looks forward to spending time somewhere
familiar. What he isn’t expecting is to help an attractive, confused American
woman find out how she’s ended up on a hit man’s list.
As Ava and Owen dodge bullets, will
they be able to escape their undeniable attraction to each other? Or will all
that chemistry blow up in a shower of hot and dangerous sparks?
only do we have a cover reveal of her new book but also there's a
surprise announcement from Nichole Chase about Suddenly Royal!!
For those of you that have been following
me for the last two months, you know that life has gotten a bit crazy. Crazy
good! And I have even more good news. I’ve accepted a three book publishing
deal with Avon Publishing of HarperCollins. With their help we will be bringing
Suddenly Royal, The Royal Agenda, and the untitled third book to
stores and bookstores near you! I’m very excited about working with Tessa
Woodward and the people of Avon. I can’t wait to see what we do together.
What does this mean for the readers?
Well, it means more accessible books! You’ll be able to find Suddenly Royal
in bookstores, Walmart, and Target in just a few months! AND! And! There will
be some added content to the new paperback. Don’t worry—it’s nothing that
changes the story, so you won’t be missing anything important—but it does give
you a little more Sam and Alex (and I know how much you guys love Alex). We’re
also working to have fast turn-around on the next two books so you guys don’t
have super long wait times. I will be letting you know those dates as soon as I
I’m very excited and am so grateful
that everyone loves Sam and Alex as much as I do. Thank you to everyone that
has made this possible. It’s a dream come true.
