A few months back, I had the opportunity to get all caught up on Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series featuring ice and stone magic-wielder Gin Blanco. Given the promise of large-scale magical conspiracies and lots of mayhem and butt-kicking, I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, which is set to release early next year. But fortunately, in the meantime, the author has penned a companion novella to the series, featuring Gin’s fastidious yet suavely awesome assistant, Silvio. Learn more about this quick read, Nice Guys Bite, via the info below. Plus, keep reading to learn how you can win a $20 Amazon gift card from the author.

Working for Gin Blanco (aka the Spider, the assassin who runs the Ashland underworld) doesn’t leave much time for romance, especially with Gin’s holiday party planning in full swing. But when he catches the eye of a charming gentleman, Silvio finds himself going out for coffee.

All’s fair in love and war, though. Just as Silvio is starting to enjoy himself, he realizes he’s being watched. His nice-guy date doesn’t sense the danger, and Silvio wants to keep it that way (and, well, keep the guy alive) so Silvio ends the date early—only to be abducted by some villainous giants.

Will Silvio survive the night and make it back to the Pork Pit in time for Gin’s holiday party? Only if he decks the hall with bodies …
