Carmen never knew she had boundaries, but when the young prostitute is called to Salvatore, the infamous mob boss, she learns that even a whore can be violated: mind, body, and soul.
Lucas dreamt of a mobster’s life. He wanted the cool suit, the expensive car, and the respect. His dreams take a pounding when he picks up the badly-bruised Carmen from Salvatore’s mansion. He starts visiting the injured woman, and despite the gruesome circumstances, the chemistry between them grows into something neither of them can resist.
Then Salvatore calls for her again.
How do you conquer the monsters under your bed? Especially when you’ve let them crawl up and share it?
This is a prequel to the Russo Saga but can be enjoyed as a standalone.
Publisher’s Note: This is a dark Mafia romance which is intended for adults only and may contain triggers for some readers. There are elements of adult language, sensual scenes, power exchange and harsh elements.
When Raven gets her dream job on Nevermore–a private, remote island–she can relax for the first time in years. As the person in charge of the island and making sure the buildings are kept in perfect condition, especially the large English manor house, is her ideal job. Using her unique skillset learned from her father, she has forgotten more than most men knew of construction.
The memories of Easton’s wife’s brutal murder haunt him still. Escaping the mainland and Poe Distilleries, he’s holed up on Nevermore, alone with only memories of his Lenore to keep him company. For almost five years, he has driven away all the other caretakers his twin brother had hired to make sure he was safe on the remote island.
Raven is different. He can’t chase her away–and for reasons he doesn’t understand, he is relieved when she stays.
But something–and someone–dark and sinister is just along the edges of their oddly tranquil life. Secrets long buried come back to haunt both of them and the answers will haunt them, evermore…
Nevermore, a modern gothic romance inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven.
