I’m the kind of guy that takes without asking.
Cause life hasn’t really done well serving my desires, but that’s about to change.
I’m knee deep in working a black widow scandal with my childhood bestie that’s paying rich-ass dividends.
Until beautiful Jenna Web shows up.
The daughter of the DA in New York. A goodie-goodie that I just can’t say no to.
But my partner in crime isn’t too thrilled with my new girl.
And my woman doesn’t know all of my secrets. She’d never accept me as-is.
With one foot in the light and one in the dark, I have to decide which way to go before it’s too late.
True freedom isn’t always what it’s chalked up to be anyways.
Especially not when vows are involved…
I didn’t choose the life I’m living, and yet, I own it.
My relief from the violence and blood is through fiction novels.
No one knows and never will. It’s not appropriate, nor would it ever be accepted.
As the son of the most violent mob boss in all of New York, I play the part well.
And love is the last thing on my mind. I’d lose it the minute I got it anyway.
So what’s the point?
But then Grace appears.
A sweet, innocent, virginal librarian with a bend toward romance books, or that’s what I see her holding in her pale fingers all the time.
She’s far more than meets the eye, and from what I can tell, she’s not looking for love either.
Just a dark encounter with a dangerous stranger in a quiet corner of the library.
Good. I’m the right man for the job.
I won’t bore you with details about the mysterious medical issues I’ve had over the last year;
the sudden severe allergies to food and medication, the sleep paralysis. All I’ll tell you is that they turned my life upside down.
But I’m a rational person.
Naturally, I assumed that my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw the strange figures standing over me.
But it felt so freakishly real;
especially one face in particular that always stayed with me long after I woke up.
Something about him always drew me in and I knew he was different. He made me feel different.
All my life, romance has felt like something that was reserved for everyone but me. I’d accepted that the only love in my life would be experienced through my artwork.
Now I’m questioning everything I know about myself, about reality, and especially about love.
For the past year, sleep paralysis has been little more than a thorn in Natalia's side. That is, until she meets Korin, a strange but beautiful alien being who makes her question everything she knows about the universe.
have come with a price he couldn’t pay.
Mobster Erik Bertinelli earned his position as one of the most feared men in New York City in
blood, and Thomas owes him a debt he isn’t capable of paying.
Erik is a resourceful man. He offers Thomas a job to square them away. And with
the only other option being death, Thomas agrees.
Now Thomas finds himself kidnapping an old fling: Aria Carrington. The daughter of a billion-dollar NYC mogul.
With no choice, Thomas plays the hand he's dealt.
One thing he never expected was for the violence to free the monster within.
Or even more so, for Aria to like it so damn much.
