This is a collection of novels that will show you just how tempting their world can be. Whether it’s a cruel Russian mobster with a fierce lust to possess the woman he loves, or the man who embraces his true mafia heritage in order to get what he wants—these mobsters will bring you to your knees…
…whether you want them to or not.
UNBREAK THIS HEART
Ever since that horrific night, I’d shut men completely out of my life. I’d gone from the spunky, fun, Alex DeMarco to a broken woman terrified of intimacy. Easing me back into dating, my best friend sets me up with kickboxing lessons from my charming and perfectly sculpted instructor—Carter Maxwell.
Carter’s goal is to break through my emotional barrier and mold my heart just like he molds my body, but trusting men is a battle I’m not ready for. What’s worse is my ex fiancé, Todd Livingston—the man who tore my heart in two—wants me back, and as much as I’d like to deny it, the feelings are still there.
Both men want what I can’t give—my body and my love—and neither are willing to give up the fight. But only one of them can unbreak this heart of mine.
Carter Phillips has returned from multiple deployments, and he’s brought a few demons home with him. War has left him scarred, inside and out, and he’s counting on the peace and isolation of his family’s farm to keep his head screwed on straight. What he doesn’t bargain for is Amy Williams, the new horse trainer. She’s kinder than he deserves, tougher than he expects, with a hidden core of vulnerability that triggers his need to possess and protect her.
Amy has finally pieced her life back together, after being forced to give up everything and assume a new identity. Now she’s safe, no longer the target of accusations and death threats—but she’s also alone. The only danger to her secrets and her celibacy is Carter Phillips, smoking-hot former Marine—and her boss’s brother. With each passing day, she finds it harder to lie to him about who she is—and who she wants.
Neither of them wants to talk about the past, but the more time they spend together, the closer they become. When the truth comes out, will it set them free or tear them apart forever?
