Spy Games I : Assassins

"I mean, how did you get into it, the, um, err, lifestyle?" 

"I've never been into anything else," he said simply.



Fresh out of training, the Agency sends Kassie Shannon into the secret world of Robert Redmond. They know he’s using his billion-dollar software company to steal sensitive information. What they don’t know is who he is selling the stolen information to, and it’s her job to find out.

He is a highly organized and secretive individual, and gaining Robert’s trust will be no easy task. But his Achilles’ heel is his passion for the BDSM lifestyle, so she poses as a trainee submissive and puts herself in his path.

Naturally cautious, Robert has never let a woman get under his skin. Until now. There’s something appealing about this inquisitive brunette with her oddly changeable personality and her passion for all things painful. He agrees to become her master, but soon falls for the chameleon beauty who is quickly becoming the most promising novice he has ever trained.

For Kassie there’s one big problem, though. The first rule of spying is not to fall in love on the job. Yet it’s hard to keep a professional detachment when your mark is all you ever wanted in a partner, and one who keeps opening doors to pleasures she never knew existed.

Still, sooner or later she will have to choose between two opposing demands—the cause she believes in, or the man she is bound to. Whichever choice she makes, it is likely that no one will win.

Excerpt : 

To the right of him was her sitting room. It was almost exactly what he expected; chairs covered with throws and cushions, books everywhere, but cute in a disorganized sort of scholarly way. Without invitation he stepped inside, removed his jacket and hung it carefully over the back of a free chair.

She remained awkwardly in the hallway, totally unsure of herself. He liked that. He extended his hand to her.

"Come here."

She did as he bid, and he took her hand as he sat down on her sofa. She looked confused when he didn't pull her down beside him; instead he maneuvered her squarely in front of him and sat back as far as the cushions would allow. Then he did nothing. He just sat there, checking her over, waiting for her to wonder what was going on. Oh, he would get there, but not yet. He wanted her to feel uncomfortable first. That was a good place to start. Sure enough in just a few seconds her hips lilted, and her stance became a little more aggressive.

"What do you want to do now?"

He adjusted his tie, straightening it rather than removing it. "Take off your top."

"Don't you want to undress me?"

"No."

He wouldn't ask her again. She wanted to try the submissive life, well, this was being submissive, to respond without question, to feel the thrill only found beyond her comfort zone. If she responded, then he would stay. If she clearly wasn't playing along, he would fuck her and never see her again. Everything hung in the balance.

She bit her lips and began unbuttoning her blouse. Her fingers fumbled, but, button-by-button, the silk opened, revealing the pale, well-toned skin below. Gently she shrugged the fabric off her shoulders, then stood, her hands crossed in front of her breasts, nervous.

"Turn around and step out of your skirt."

Interview with Heather Hart

Now, Heather, tell us about Spy Games – Assassins.
Assassins is a power-play story about a novice spy. She masquerades as a submissive to bring down a man thought to be selling secrets to the enemy. But what begins as a mission soon turns into a journey of self-discovery, in a world where nothing is quite what it seems. The idea came out of nowhere and it’s been a lot of fun writing about Kassie and Robert. They get up to a lot of naughtiness and always manage to surprise me.

Can you tell us what you are working on now?
Sure. ‘Kinky Assassins’ and ‘Stolen Love’ were released together in November, and the third in the series, ‘A Swinging Christmas’ will be out in December. So the next book will actually be the fourth in the series – and at the moment it’s tentatively called, ‘The Player’s Club.’ Like most of my stories I’m thrashing it out in my head first, but once I have a strong outline, it won’t take long to get it down.

What books have most influenced your life most? Oh, so, so many - - it’s hard to pick a few. I have always adored Oscar Wilde, Hardy, Austen and Dickens. But I like modern stuff too, and go gaga for the Harry Potter series, just like everyone else. The first erotica I ever read was, ‘The Story of O.’ And yes, it turned me to on read it. It’s a great example of well-written erotica.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? I have different mentors at different times. The last book I finished was Stephen King’s, ‘On Writing,’ but now I’m reading, ‘The Dark Witch,’ by Nora Roberts. Every writer I have ever read is a mentor to me – I like to study their voice and sentence structure – if I love something I like to rip it apart and ask myself why it worked - - it’s a great way to hone your craft.

Do you use a pseudonym? If so how did you choose it?
Heather Hart was a bit of a lottery. I love attending the Blushing chat night, and threw some choices out there. Maggie Ryan (love her) helped me choose this one.

How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning? Do you have any name choosing resources you recommend?
Sometimes a character name just comes to me, and sometimes they have meaning. But it’s entirely random. I recommend choosing names that are appropriate for the setting, and I use Google if I’m looking for historically appropriate names.

Is there one subject you would never write about as an author? What is it?
I won’t be writing a mathematics book any time soon – just saying.

What item, that you don't have already, would you most like to own?A Mercedes SUV. Too shallow? I don’t care. GIMME ONE.
