It was supposed to be business.
Two families, one wedding, zero emotion.

My father’s mafia outfit had saved my life.
I owed them everything.
An arranged marriage was hardly a sacrifice when I would have already been long dead had it not been for them.

I would give up my independence for the Lucciano Family.
I would bind myself to the man whose family tore my life to pieces.

Matteo De Luca was vicious claws sheathed in refinement and class.
He saw my untamed independence as a challenge.
I saw his alluring authority as a threat.

There was a ruthless storm that raged in his oceanic gaze. A majestic tidal wave of temper and domination looking to break on my rocky shores.
He would annihilate me.
Rip open my layers until all my pretty secrets were scattered at his feet.

The worst part? I wanted to experience whatever it was Matteo had to offer, and I hated myself for it.
I wanted to launch myself at him.
To kiss him. To kill him.
To end the debilitating torture of the unknown.

The moment our paths collided, our lives were altered irrevocably.
Taking us from enemies allied by a strategic marriage to something dark and consuming.
Something that tasted like obsession.

Excerpt

I arrived at my apartment at nine o’clock sharp and found Matteo waiting for me outside my door. I’d had two martinis with dinner, and on top of the champagne, even food hadn’t been enough to counteract the alcohol. I wasn’t about to stumble in front of any trucks, but I was far more affected than I would have preferred.

It was my own fault.

I’d known I would see him. I’d known how important it was to be in possession of all my faculties in his presence, but I’d indulged in the drinks anyway. I had told myself it was my reward for spending a day with my family, but that wasn’t the truth of it. Deep down, in a darkest part of me that I refused to acknowledge, I wanted to drop my defenses.

All my life I’d kept the world at gunpoint.

It was exhausting.

The ease of letting go was shamefully alluring. He was my enemy. Of all people, he was the last person I should entrust with my protection. And yet … that’s exactly what I’d done. Handed myself over in a state of intoxication, unable to fully defend myself.

It was time to see if Matteo De Luca would keep me afloat or use those capable hands to hold me under.

He leaned his muscled frame against the wall in a statement of casual indifference, but his eyes betrayed him. Even with alcohol clouding my vision, I could still see the ruthless storm that raged in his oceanic gaze. A majestic tidal wave of temper and domination looking to break on my rocky shores.

He would annihilate me.

Batter my jagged defenses until he’d smoothed all my hard edges and whittled me away to my foundations.

He pretended to be a simple passing storm in the distance, but I knew the devastation he could wreak. I could feel it not just in my bones but in my core where fissures of lust uncoiled and warmed me from the inside out.

I wanted to launch myself at him.

To kiss him. To kill him.

To end the debilitating torture of the unknown.

I wanted to experience whatever it was Matteo had to offer, and I hated myself for it. Unfortunately for me, my own self-loathing wasn’t enough to keep me from inviting the lion inside my den. Without a word, I unlocked my door, feeling his stealthy presence stalk behind me.

Forever Lies (The Five Families #1)

Amazon US

Luca was heartache waiting to happen.

On the surface, he appears well-dressed and professional, but behind those impassive black irises, I can sense something dark and ruthless. He’s unlike any man I’ve come across in my life. With my wealthy upbringing, I’ve been around any number of affluent, powerful men, but Luca is different. Enigmatic. Overwhelming. He wears an air of secrecy like the latest fashion trend.

I’m not one of those girls who seeks out the bad boy—I have enough issues to deal with in my life without adding his brand of trouble. Problem is, a chance elevator malfunction put me straight in his crosshairs, and now, he won’t let me walk away. The most disturbing part—no matter how dangerous he may be, there’s a mutinous side of me that doesn’t want to run. As if I ever had a choice…


Never Truth (The Five Families #2)

Amazon US

Sofia

My life fractured when I was only five years old.

I thought I’d never be whole again, but a boy helped piece me back together, one day at a time. Nico Conti became my world—ten years later, he shattered my heart.

He took away the light, so I learned to see in the dark.

Now he’s come back, trying to explain away his absence and pick up where we left off. He doesn’t understand everything’s changed. I’m not the same girl he left behind, but he doesn’t seem to care. He wants all of me. That’s more than I’m willing to give.

Nico

They say you don’t know what you’ve lost until it’s gone, but that wasn’t true. I knew exactly how devastating it would be to lose Sofia, and I did it anyway. I thought our separation would be permanent, but I’ve suddenly been forced back into her life. Walking away once was hard enough; I’m not strong enough to leave her again. Now that I’ve seen her, tasted her, I have to make her mine.

Seven years ago, I made the biggest mistake of my life.

I plan to do everything in my power to correct that mistake, even if it means coming clean about the past. There’s a chance the secrets I carry will push her further away, but that’s a risk I’ll have to take. Sofia Genovese was made for me, and I’m determined to win her back.
