A rival bent on revenge… Kate Andretti is married to the Mob–but doesn’t know it. When her husband uproots them to Italy, Kate leaves everything she knows behind. Alone in a foreign land, she finds herself locked in a battle for her life against a husband and a family who will “silence” her if she will not do as they wish.

Excerpt: Enrico raised a hand in greeting to Kate, and she returned his wave and started descending the steps. She headed straight for him, her auburn hair gleaming in the sun, a few strands of it blowing across her pale cheek and into her green eyes. With a delicate hand, she brushed the hair out of her face. Enrico’s fingers twitched with the desire to touch her cheek like that, to feel the slide of her silky hair. A small, almost secretive smile crossed her features, and he swallowed hard. Dio mio. He felt that smile down to his toes. She stopped a couple feet from him. “Signor Lucchesi, it’s good to see you, as always.” He bowed his head slightly. “And you, Signora Andretti.” He paused, a grin spreading across his face. “Since when did we get so formal, Kate?” She half-turned and motioned to the doorway behind her. And that was when he noticed it–a bruise on her right cheek. Merda! Had someone hit her? Tearing his eyes off the mark, he followed her gesture. A tall, sandy-haired man, well-muscled and handsome, leaned in the doorway, his arms crossed. “My husband, Vincenzo, is here.” Enrico’s smile receded. He looked back to Kate. “I’d like to meet him.” And if he did this to her, he’s going to pay. ******** Sensuality level: Hot (RT Book Reviews scale) WARNING: This book contains graphic language, sexual situations, and violence.Romance

Stranded together during a rampaging hurricane, passion explodes between a reclusive billionaire and the headstrong reporter seeking his exclusive story…a story that could get her killed. Daredevil TV reporter Veronique “Ronnie” Whitcomb is charismatic, fun-loving, and loyal to a fault. Especially to the man she fell in love with fifteen years ago. He’s now a self-made billionaire, and at the center of a public scandal so hot and juicy, Ronnie must get an exclusive interview…an interview that will vindicate him and expose the real criminal behind the scintillating headlines. Financial whiz, Nick Cameron rose from an underprivileged life to become one of America’s youngest corporate billionaires. Now he’s laying low on a barrier island, far away from the raging media storm that nearly destroyed him. When little Ronnie Whitcomb shows up on his doorstep, all grown up and heart-stoppingly beautiful, he tries to deny his feelings for her, but a hurricane strands them on the island together. Keeping Ronnie at arm’s length becomes impossible. Hunted by the person desperate to stop Ronnie from exposing criminal secrets, Nick must risk his life – and his heart – to keep Ronnie alive.Romance
