The Request Series, a sexy, thrilling romantic contemporary romance trilogy from NY Times Bestselling Author Marquita Valentine.

The Request, Book 1: Meet Roman Smith: Shopkeeper by Day. Assassin by Night. The undercover Russian contract killer has never turned down an assignment that rids the world of scum… until his latest job targets an innocent man. Refusing is not an option, because of Everly Andrews, the sexy southern belle who saved him from dying. She's completely unaware of his double life, but has been marked as next on the kill list should he fail. Only, what The Bratva doesn't know--there’s nothing Roman won’t do to keep Everly safe.

The Deception, Book 2: Drugged and deposited in a hotel in Prague, Roman must be on guard at all times in order to protect his lover, Everly Andrews, but the countdown has begun, and it won't stop until his next target, or Everly, is terminated.Can Roman protect Everly until he can eliminate the threat to her life?

The Confession, Book 3: Left for dead, Roman's cover has been blown. Worse, Everly is in Viktor's evil clutches, yet believes Roman to be the bad guy. Roman can't trust anyone, not even his cousin, Benjamin, who he must team up with to rescue Everly. Will Roman get there in time to save her, or will Everly be another casualty of a family grab for power in the Bratva?


The Request- Roman has been shot and left for dead in his own book shop.

“At the same time?” she asks, voice trembling as she sits back. Once again her hands go to my face, stroking my cheek. She leans over me and this close I can see the fullness of her lips, the smoothness of her skin and the concern in her gaze.

“No, love. Check the wounds to see if the bullet went all the way through or not.”

“O—okay.” Gingerly, she moves away from me, careful to place my head on the hardwood floor. I watch as she grabs a pair of scissors from her purse. “I knew these would come in handy one day.”

Quickly, she cuts my pants leg off. In the background, I’m dimly aware the emergency operator is still on the line. “Well?”

“I can’t… Oh God, Roman, I have to pick up your leg to see.”

“Don’t move him,” the operator shouts.

Everly’s gaze flies to mine. She licks her lips, clearly torn between a professional and me, the reserved shopkeeper. “What do you want me to do?” she asks softly.

“Check, please, I’ll help you.” Gritting my teeth, I lift my leg, and break out into a cold sweat. “Hurry, darling.”

“There’s a hole in the back, but it’s small,” she says and I prop my foot on the shelf in front of me.


Sirens blare.

Everly looks over her shoulder. “They’re here. Thank God. They’re here, Roman.”

“Thank you,” I breathe, letting the darkness take me once more. Even if I never wake up again, this heaven I’m experiencing right now is worth it.

The Request Series, in Five Words

Sexy: The chemistry between Roman and Everly is off the charts. He’s burning for her, and has been for months!

Thrilling: I kill off a main character in the second installment. Enough said. ;)

Fast-paced: Spain, Germany, France, Morocco, and North Carolina (yep, you read that correctly)- to name a few locations- by train, by car, by private jet, or running on foot away from a mansion on the verge of collapse. Roman is on the run the entire time.

Suspenseful: Roman never knows who is completely on his side, or who wants him dead.

Hot: Well… when Roman finally gets his hands on Everly, like he’s been wanting to do for months… make sure you have a fan or some ice on hand.
