A cold assassin. Violent intimidator. Ruthlessly loyal. And I never question orders.
After what I saw Jess do, I should put a bullet in her head and dump her body in the desert. That’s what the oath I took demands of me.
But I don’t want to kill her. I want to keep her for myself. I want to own every inch of her creamy skin and soft curves. She’s a very dangerous plaything. A savage like me can’t resist.
So I stalk her. I follow her every move, creeping closer and closer until I’m sharing her bed. The more she resists, the more my obsession rages, the more I’m determined to slither my way into her heart.
Owning her body comes with a price. If the Mariano’s find out who she is, and that I didn’t kill her, we’re both dead. It’s a deadly game we’re playing. The kind of action I live for. I’ll probably die for it too.

What Readers are Saying about The Girl from Her Mirror:
“I absolutely loved this book. It was fast-paced and almost impossible to put down. The main characters are appealing. This is the first book in a three book series. You could stop with just this book. It wraps up most of the plot lines. But if you’re like me, you are going to want to find out what happens to Kenzie. Give it a try. Bet you can’t read just one.
“There are very few authors that grab my attention and make me hate having to put the book down. Becki Willis is now one of those authors for me! The book was so well written and it grabs you from page one until the last page. I was thrilled when I found out that the characters would be continuing in a second and third sequel.
“Great book! By the end if the book you will feel like you know each character personally.”
“A thrill ride that will have you gripping the edge of your seat.”
“This is a must-read. The characters are amazing.”

After staying in the Swiss Alps for barely two days, Inspector Cullot knows there are going to be two murders committed at his hotel. He also knows there is only one man who can prevent there being even more… That man is Inspector Cullot himself. So begins another Inspector Cullot Mystery… Cullot, together with his gorgeous, sexy daughter, Stephanie, his faithful side-kick, Detective Sergeant Watkins, and the bumbling, note-taking PC Blunt, put their holiday on hold and set off in pursuit of the killer, in one of the most baffling cases of Cullot’s illustrious career. Who are the two naked victims pinioned to their beds by knives thrust through their bosoms? Who’s the callous killer who’s carried out such hideous, gruesome murders? We meet an array of characters: the still stunningly attractive Madame Laporte (whose charms have an immediate effect upon Cullot himself); the suave, ripplingly-muscled Herr Randimann (whose charms Stephanie is currently sampling); the brazen little minx, Veronique, Madame Laporte’s daughter; the Italian ice-cream salesman, Signor Delitto, with a constantly twinkling eye for the ladies; the secretive Herr Geschlecht, and his sour-faced wife; and other characters, with their unexpected entrances and exits. Which one of them is hiding his (or her) real identity? Who harbors dark secrets from the past, and a burning, uncontrollable desire for revenge? What nefarious deeds have been taking place over recent years at this seemingly respectable hotel? What are the links between the victims and the guests which Cullot and his squad must unearth? Are there even unsavoury connections between the victims and members of Cullot’s team itself? Who is involved, and who isn’t? Will you be able to spot the killer? Amidst the sparkling repartee, non-stop thrills and series of startling revelations, will you be able to discard the red herrings and fasten on to the important clues? Will you be completely baffled, like the mentally-challenged PC Blunt, or exhibit the incisive skills and investigative acumen of Cullot himself, maybe the greatest detective the world has ever known? There’s only one way to find out…
