Meet the Character


This here is Cesare Shahidi. She’s an assassin, a model, a linguist and an incurable lover of all things deadly. She’s also my next great character. Her first book, Assassin, will be out in the summer of next year, but I wanted to give you a preview of her now. Everyone, Cesare Shahidi:

  • Name: Cesare (Che-za-ray) Shahidi, alias, Essence Carter
  • Code Name: Paragon
  • Profession: Model turned assassin
  • Expertise: Killing them softly
  • Weapon of choice: Poison
  • Backup weapon of choice: Stiletto
  • Backup to the backup: Her body
  • Base of operations: Barcelona
  • Languages spoken: Arabic, English, Farsi, French, Spanish
  • Quote that best describes her: “Veni, vidi, vici”
  • First seen in: You are Mine (final story for At Last’s Caroline and Brian)
  • Other appearances: Assassin by Lisa G. Riley and The Lion in Russia by Roslyn Hardy Holcomb

Description: She was what you got when a disillusioned former female member of the American Black Power Movement married and reproduced with an Iranian-American dissident who could trace his family’s roots all the way back to the Lasiqs of the Order of the Assassins: dangerous, fervently committed to the cause and sometimes crazy as hell.

    1. Hi, Sonya. I’m so glad you liked the book so much. “Assassin” is Cesare’s book and it isn’t ready for publication. When I have the release date, I will publish it here and on my Facebook page. Thanks for asking!
