Lang Johnson’s hotly anticipated debut romance novel is out today! Grab it in paperback or ebook:

“This dark, dramatic world dragged me in deep. The high stakes and murderous heroine are blockbuster-worthy.” — Talia Hibbert, New York Times-bestselling author of Act Your Age, Eve Brown

“Unexpected in all the best ways. A sizzling romance that keeps you wondering how it will ever work, and a suspense that you just know never will – not without someone losing it all. Lang Johnson is a writer to watch out for, and Devil’s Breath, a deliciously carnal addiction.” — Gia de Cadenet, author of Getting His Game Back

Included in SheDoestheCity’s round up of 16 Books You’ll Love by Asian and Pacific Islander Authors


Sera Dwari is a brilliant chemist and a deadly assassin who will stop at nothing to expand her family’s empire.

With her criminal father’s guidance, they’re slated to dominate the drug industry with her creation: Devil’s Breath. There’s just one, handsome, smooth-talking problem. Cassius Batista. Sera is tasked to kill the billionaire unknowingly funding their venture. She plans the job, anticipating every outcome. The one thing she didn’t see coming was…love. But betraying her father isn’t an option.

Cassius Batista is not naïve. When his brother introduces him to the alluring Sera he knows something is off. She is everything a man could want in a woman. But Cassius didn’t reach the top of the food chain by playing the fool. Sera is hiding something and he is determined to break through her icy facade.

The line between truth and fiction blurs for them both as the stakes reach lethal levels. Their courtship is a dangerous game. It can only end one way—someone has to die. Sera must choose between two men. The one who raised her and the one she’s fallen for.

Family may be forever, but is love worth risking it all?
