Some may or may not know that Ava Gray is Ann Aguirre, author of the Romantic Science Fiction series: Sirantha Jax and of the Urban Fantasy series: Corine Solomon.
Writing as Ava Gray, Skin Game is Ann’s first foray into paranormal romance and the first book in the Skin series.
Blurb taken from the Ava Gray website:
A beautiful fugitive—wanted dead or alive.
Kyra is a con woman and a particular kind of thief. She steals with a touch, but she only takes one thing: her target’s strongest skill. Which means she can be a fighter, an athlete, a musician, an artist—anything she wants… for a limited time. Heartbroken, she turns her gift toward avenging her father’s murder; with deadly patience, Kyra works her way into casino owner Gerard Serrano’s inner circle. After pulling off the ultimate con, she flees with his money and his pride.
A hit man who never misses the mark.
Reyes has nothing but his work. Pity for Kyra, he’s the best and mercy never sways him once he takes a job. He’s been hired to find out where Kyra hid the cash—and bring her back to face Serrano’s “justice.” Dead will do, if he can’t locate the loot. He’s never failed to complete a contract, but Kyra tempts him with her fierce heat and her outlaw heart. So Reyes has a hell of a choice: forsake his word or kill the woman he might love.
Doesn’t that sound badass? It sounds badass to us!

Great idea with the poll. I got my copy of Skin Game an hour ago and I’m still stroking the cover. So no need to include me in the contest. Will start reading now!
Have a great week ladies!
I chose Charles! I just fell in love with his character in A&O. Great giveaway!
Of the ones listed above, I think Deamon SaDiablo is the ultimate bad ass! 🙂
He just has that market cornered all by himself almost.
Please to be entered in the draw.
Thank you Book Pushers! *blows kisses*
I love Charles!!! I had to vote for him, even if I wouldn’t call him such a bad-ass.
I agree with Varg. Daemon is just a complete bad ass. Skin Game looks very interesting. Great giveaway!

Thanks for doing this!
I voted for Charles Cornick!
Daemon, Daemon, Daemon! He’s fascinating, he’s mysterious and he is just great!
I’d love to be a part of your giveaway please. Skin Game had me at the first sentence! lol Have to read more regardless…
Thanks for a wonderful opportunity!
When I seen Deamon SaDiablo’s name, all others just faded because he’s the ultimate bad-ass. The stuff that, that man can do (and I still love him to this day since I first read the books.) I’m happy he’s ahead!
I voted on your poll, but I think the best bad-ass hero is Lestat.
All the best,
Oh gosh, it’s a toss up between Deamon SaDiablo and Bastien Toussaint – both are pretty bad-A in my book!!! But I love them all! This was a great poll. Thanks!!
Wow, you picked all good ones!! I’ll go with Charles, but I would settle for any one of them. Thanks, Sue
Bastien got my vote, he was just so deliciously bad. I can’t believe I haven’t read an Anne Bishop story yet, from the comments about Daemon I am definitely missing out.
I chose Linda Howard cuz she’s amazing! Bad ass heros…are we forgetting J.R. Ward?
We have forgotten a few heroes- especially JR Ward- but there will be a detailed blog post later this on that! 😀
But Zsadist and Judd from the Psy/Changeling series is another!
well this apprears to be a MUST read so count me in 🙂
It was hard to choose, but I chose Charles. Skin Game sounds like a really great story, I’m really looking forward to reading it (and stroking the cover).
In the interest of honest disclosure – I have to say I haven’t read some of those books/series – but I’ve heard of them and… I had to throw my vote in for Daemon because… well hello. 😀
I voted for Charles, but there are quite a few hot bad heroes!
I voted Raphael
I was torn between Daemon and Charles…Charles got my vote in the end (I love PB~).
That will be Daemon for me! Yumm i just love him
(don’t enter me in the contest i already have my copy)
I voted Charles cause he is awesomely bad-ass, but I really think Bones from Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series is THE ultimate bad-ass.
Oh I want this book so bad.
I chose Charles Cornick of course…
Alpha & Omega series
I really really want this book. Love the poll.
