He’s a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn’t matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.

***** 

I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.

Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.

Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…

He’s arrogant and infuriating.

He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.

He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.

Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I'm so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.

No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.

His wicked...devastating...impossible-to-resist smile. 

Oh well, who needs panties anyway?

Seducing women to steal their secrets? No problem. Until he tries it with her.

Mac’s a spy—one of the best—a hot blond Viking with bad intentions. The singer in the Bangkok nightclub should be easy to handle: take her recordings while she’s recovering from the best sex of her life. Except she stirs feelings he thought he’d buried years ago.

Laney fled to Bangkok—new life, new identity, new everything. She keeps mostly to herself until the night she meets arrogant, gorgeous Professor Peter Maxwell. He shatters her defenses—along with her pride when she discover he only seduced her to steal some secrets.

 Just hours later, she finds him shirtless and sweaty, chained up in the hotel basement. He’s some sort of undercover agent. She should probably leave him there after what he did to her, maybe even kick him for good measure. But her pscyho ex is on his way back—she can feel it in her bones—and she could use a dangerous friend.

“Addictive and loads of fun to read…one of the very best romantic suspense novels I read this year.”  ~Dabney, The Passionate Reader

“Do yourself a favor and pick up this Carolyn Crane book.  It is  unique and stimulating and one of my favorites for this year.” ~Sunny, Love Affair with an Ereader

"Full of action and sparkling chemistry between Laney and Peter, this book is so much fun to read." ~USA Today  

“Wow...this book was most definitely a keep-you-at-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of novel. I went to bed when I was around the 60-65% novel, then woke up wide awake at 2:00 AM thinking about the book. There was no way I was going to go back to sleep until I finished the book. Yes, it was one of those.” ~Smitten with Reading

I remember him before he was a monster. Before they told us the prince was dead.

Aleksio grew up orphaned, hunted, separated from his brothers - because of my father.

Now the sweet boy is back, a dark prince, gorgeous and brutal in his Armani suit, wrapping my hair in his fist. He's my captor, my tormenter. He'll do anything to rescue his brothers...and I'm my father's only weakness.

"I'm the most dangerous enemy you'll ever have," he tells me, "Because every time you look at me, you see somebody good."

But I remember when Aleksio was my only friend. I remember when they lowered his tiny casket into the ground, and how I cried when they lied to us and told us the prince was dead.

“Twisted, sexy and dark--Dark Mafia Prince is everything I love in a stay-up-all-night-can't-put-it-down read!" ~M. O'Keefe 

"Explosively fantastic!"~KL Kreig
