Assassin's Pride 2

Poppy lives in hell and has for as long as he could remember. The only bright spot he has seen in years is another prisoner being held in the cell next to him. If he can save Marcus, Poppy knows that he will have done at least one good thing in his life. He just had to find Marcus's friends and let them know that they are being led into a trap…and then go back to hell.

Dean Stone is an assassin. He's cold, hard, and without remorse. He's also pretty damn sure that he has stepped into a crazy world. His friend, Gage has mated with the cat king of a pride. His other friends are missing and the agency he works for is a complete mess. What's crazier than that?

When Dean goes to the place where he's supposed to pick Marcus up, he finds something else altogether. Poppy is sweet and innocent and about as sexy as he could possibly be. He is also scared out of his mind and clinging to Dean like a second skin. And Dean doesn't have the heart to deny the man, even when taking care of Poppy turns into a full time job.

But when danger arrives on their doorstep, Dean's training as an assassin comes in handy, especially when Poppy is kidnapped by the same men that held him in the first place. And Dean has no remorse what so ever about killing anyone that stands between him and the man he's falling for.

5 DELIGHTFUL DIVAS & RECOMMENDED READ: “Poppy’s Pleasure (Assassin’s Pride 2) is a book that I have been waiting for Ms. Stormy Glenn to write and I was not disappointed. The book was wonderful and everything that I had hoped for. Poppy’s Pleasure tells the tale of ex-assassin Dean, best friend of Gage and Noah (book one) and their rescue attempt of another team member Marcus. When the rescue takes place, Dean encounters Poppy waiting in the wings to warn the men of an impending trap. The story takes off from there and includes mystery, intrigue and love; which is just a snippet of what occurs…Poppy’s Pleasure has fast become one of this reviewers favorite books and I look forward to more in the series. A must read.” – Evelise, Dark Divas Reviews


5 STARS: “Author Stormy Glenn somehow made a house cat into the most feared creature around. Yes, these kind, sweet shifters will have the fur flying and the claws out in a instance if you challenge their mates; and whether Dean likes it or not he is Poppy’s mate...The conflict in this story is a driving force. It throws the characters together as well as gives them something to start to develop a relationship around. It also plays a role in who they are as individuals as well as together. It also allowed me to meet a plethora of supporting characters who each had their own attributes whether good or bad. I was so enthralled with the story that I had not realized how long it had been, and was not ready for it to end. I cannot wait to read the next installment of the Assassin’s Pride Series.” -- Peppermint, Long & Short Reviews


5 FALLEN ANGELS: “This is a fast-paced story with many twists and turns that kept me entranced from the beginning. As Poppy's story unfolds, the years of abuse, both physical and mental, were obvious by his attitude of subservience and frightened demeanor. His refusal to look anyone in the face because his master would have him beaten for the smallest infraction gave Dean a clear understanding of the hell he had lived through. Dean's confusion about what was happening to him and Poppy was understandable, but in spite of everything, he wanted to keep Poppy with him and safe. The growing love between Poppy and Dean was beautiful to experience. Noah played an important part in helping Poppy accept the changes in him and his new life. The plot developed in a way I never expected, but very much enjoyed.” -– Teresa, Fallen Angels Reviews


5 STARS: "Poppy’s Pleasure, Assassin’s Pride, Book Two by Stormy Glenn will find us on the edge of our seat as new friends and old take on evil." A delight from beginning to end, you do not want to miss Poppy’s Pleasure by Stormy Glenn.  Stormy Glenn is a must read author and Poppy’s Pleasure is at the top of my favorite list." -- Elise, Sensual Reads


4.5 KISSES: “Poppy's Pleasure by Stormy Glenn is second book in the Assassin's Pride series. While it can be read as a standalone, the reader will better understand the subtleties having read The Cat's Meow. Ms. Glenn crafted a tale which had me laughing and crying. Poppy has been treated as something less than human, but still manages to have a wonderfully innocent view of the world. He understands evil is present and has seen more than his fair share, but he still manages to enjoy something as simple as licking the bowl of brownie mix or enjoying the taste of watermelon. You couldn't help but smile as you read about each new experience. Dean isn't use to caring about anyone other than his three best friends. He doesn't trust easily, but he is unable to fight Poppy. Poppy has managed to get under his skin and crack open his unused protective instincts. He re-learns about the good in people and the world, while at the same time showing Poppy that he is his own master. This story is a wonderful addition to this series and I am looking forward to where Ms. Glenn will take us next.” – Tangie, Two Lips Reviews


4 STARS: “There is a good amount of action in the story and the continuation of a plot line that will lead to great sequels. The writing was good, the story is exciting and the sex between Dean and Poppy was hot. I am particularly pleased in Ms. Glenn’s portrayal of Poppy. His wide eyed innocence and naivete could have been very juvenile and annoying, yet he never came across that way to me. I wanted to hug the man for the bad things that have happened to him and I cheered for him while finding his independence and self worth. I really enjoyed this book very much, even more than the first book and that doesn’t happen to me very often. I am looking forward to seeing Marcus in the next installment in the Assassin’s Pride series.” –- Maya, Hearts on Fire Reviews


“As much fun as the first book, this sequel continues the story of the unusual cat shifters who recently discovered their true king (Noah). Both Noah and his mate, Gage are back, but this book focuses on Dean (Gage's friend) and a man he rescues when looking for traces of another friend of theirs. The mix of tension and humor is well-balanced, but this book leans more toward the suspense as more dark machinations are discovered…Like Noah and Gage, Poppy and Dean entertained me, making me follow their amazing discoveries and adventures through sheer force of personality and quirkiness. They fell for each other in very different ways, but they are clearly meant to be together. If you like unusual shifters, action/adventure and a lot of revelations that show an even bigger conspiracy than book one, and if you enjoy a mentally strong but physically weaker male being protected by a strong alpha male, then you will probably like this book as much as I did.” – Serena Yates, Rainbow Book Reviews
