Scarlet Risque hits a home run with “Red Hourglass.” It is unique and the heroine provides lots of intrigue when she is rescued from the NY streets as a homeless teen and turned into a deadly assassin. When romance interferes with her latest assignment, her loyalty is tested. Can she live and love without deadly consequences. This is an interesting read, I think anyone would enjoy.
