I was able to resist the desire for months, but I’m an addict and pain is my drug. I’ve found ways to get a fix while staying safe which is why I have so many tattoos. I was able to ignore the pull, the need, that spike of fear the pain brings. Until I wasn’t.
Now they know my secret. Now they know what swirls inside of me. And they crave more. I wonder if they’ll stick around because a lifetime of my pain as their pleasure sounds perfect to me.
I hide who and what I am behind a façade, one carefully crafted and hard to break through because of the smile on my face and the armor around my soul. With Jessa and the guys, I can admit who I am and let my darkness out to play. I can see the doubt in her eyes, the fear this will all disappear and become nothing but a dream. She doesn’t realize that I can never go back now. None of us can.
Oh, the things I want to do to Jessa. I knew there was darkness lurking beneath the ink and now that it’s peeked back at me, I can’t let it go. Just like I can’t let her go. She wants to hide this part of herself, but I’m going to show her that the only thing to do is embrace it.
I forgot how to live a long time ago, content with going through the motions and doing the things expected of me to live from one day to the next. Until Jessa let herself be free. Now I can soar on the wings of her pain and pleasure because they are my own. She owns me, all of me, and now I live to bring her to her knees knowing she’s the one who has the power to slay me.

Ah, Christmas; my most hated time of the year. Most of the year I’m full of sunshine and rainbows, but once the tinsel and stockings are brought out of storage my mood goes south. Fast. It’s all fake and everyone has lost the meaning of the season.
It’s the busiest time of year for Éclair Wishes, the bakery I own and run with my two sisters. Maybe I hate this time of year because I’m so busy baking and can’t enjoy it anymore. Too bad my sisters won’t let me sleep through the holidays. Then there’s Evan, a regular who always has a smile and flirty words for me. If he’s not careful he’s going to fudge around and find out exactly how much I hate Christmas.
When a storm rolls through and we get trapped in the bakery, can Evan help me remember what it’s like to have some holiday spirit? What happens when the twinkle lights turn back on? Will I go back to being a Grinch or is there room in my heart for him and Christmas?
While I have a sweet tooth, I don’t go to Éclair Wishes just for the delicious pastries. I go to see Raegan because I’m drawn to her in a way I don’t understand. I saw her smile in spring, summer and fall, but it fades when winter rolls around and the holidays draw closer. I can’t have that.
I don’t know why, but she doesn’t like the hustle and bustle of the season. I’m determined to change it, even if she doesn’t want me to. She needs me to be the best Christmas elf there ever was and I’m not going to disappoint.
When the city is blanketed in snow and the lights go out, I have to check on her. Finding her alone in the bakery is an opportunity I’m not going to let go to waste. I’m going to help her find the joy in the season again and then I’m going to keep her. I’m only whole when she has a smile on her face. Raegan’s mine, no matter the season, whether the lights are on or not.

These ten women have had it with lots of things this season. They're done with the gimme-gimme customers, the people looking for the "perfect" gift who have no clue what the person likes, and serving the hundredth peppermint latte of the day.
They're about to meet a man who is full of the holiday spirit that they've run out of. He's going to help them find their love for the season and in the process they'll share lots of fudgin' fun.
There are a few things in this life I love and one of them is riling up Isabella Torres. The look she gets in her eyes when she’s thinking of the ways she could hurt me is all fire. I’ve never wanted to be burned more in my life.
I desperately want to know how far I can push her until she breaks or until she realizes she’s mine. Owning the building where her bakery is makes it easier to get to her. I know she’s annoyed with me and curses me in her head, but she’s all sugar smiles and sarcastic platitudes on the outside.
I want to see the real her and I’m going to get it. I have a proposition for her that gets her in my bed. Once she’s there, I’m never letting her go and she has no idea. By Christmas she’ll be tied up in tinsel and at my mercy for the rest of our lives. I’ll own her heart and I’ve already wrapped mine up and put it under the tree for her.
Sterling is the definition of so many words in the dictionary, but not one of them is kind. He gets under my skin and frustrates me like no other person I’ve ever met. The fact that his personality is wrapped up in the hottest package I’ve ever seen is not helping matters.
Part of me wants him desperately, but I would never admit such a thing. I’m going to keep putting the business first and deal with Sterling because it’s my job. I’m suspicious when he comes to me with a proposition that would prevent him from continuing to make my life more difficult. Rightly so because the price he’s asking is a little steep.
What’s one night in his clutches for a lifetime of not having a headache brought on by his antics? He won’t tie me up in knots and steal my heart. That would only happen if I’ve been put on Santa’s naughty list this year. When I find it difficult to walk away, the only conclusion is that I’ve been a very bad girl.

In my pain, I have found darkness. When I am at my lowest, I find him. He is all darkness, a place where light doesn’t dare to touch. How can he bring me so much warmth when all I have known is cold for so long? I want him as my savior, but he tastes like sin on my tongue.
Being separated from what I love the most due to my body’s own betrayal has broken something inside of me. Dance used to be a way for me to feel the rays of the sun on my face, to feel free. Ballet is no longer an option, but I haven’t made my peace with the loss.
When searching for another way to dance and leave the shadows, that’s when I find him. Elio won’t let me go, but I don’t want him to. He is not a man who heals. He is a man who kills. Then how does he manage to bring my broken pieces back together? Is he mending me just to break me again?
Filling in for my brother at his club brings me a woman whose cracked soul calls to mine. She is shrouded in darkness and shadow, things I intimately understand. The pain in her eyes makes me yearn to cradle her against me and fix her.
Zinnia is the light I need in my life, the one ray of undiluted joy that could banish the demons inside of me while also freeing her from the darkness of her sadness. She calls to me—a song on the wind that caresses the movements of her body. Wanting her, having her, could bring me happiness or it could bring death to us all.
How can I hold her when the blood on my hands never dries? What new dangers would she come to know by being in my life? Can I help her to blossom and keep her safe? It doesn’t matter because I’m never letting her go and those who defy me, who would dare to punish her for my sins? They will know the shadows of the underworld because of my hands.

Power comes at a cost and these men have sacrificed their souls. They know violence, death, and how to walk in the gray, but that doesn’t mean they are without weakness. The women they love are their light and they would scorch the Earth to protect them. This December meet the men who rule their empires of crime and the women who stand by them while darkness reigns.
Revenge. It’s the only thing that has been driving me for so long and now it’s so close. The death of my twin hangs heavy on my heart. She didn’t deserve the pain she was put through. The desperation she must have felt echoes through my soul along with my guilt. The man who killed her was not tortured enough.
Since the man responsible is already gone, the only one who can temper my need for blood is Nikolai Orlov. I’ve been watching and waiting. When he retreats to his cabin, I know it’s time to strike. He will answer all my questions and I will get vengeance for my sister’s demise.
Getting stranded with him wasn’t part of the plan. Nor was finding out that his pain mirrors my own. He’s haunted, but is it enough? Will anything ever be? Can my soul rest in his arms and find peace? What would my sister think of me if she knew Nikolai has stolen my heart?
I am being haunted. There are so many sins in my past, so many deaths on my shoulders, but the death that taints my soul the most wasn’t by my hands. I was too late to stop the abuse, but I tried to make it right. I can still see her lifeless eyes in my nightmares because her ghost will not let me rest. I don’t deserve the luxury of vanquished guilt.
The need to get away from the city and search for some solace drives me to my cabin. I was hopeful the ghost of my failure, wouldn’t follow me, but she did. At least, I thought she did, but the person who has been haunting me isn’t a ghost at all.
I see the pain in Mistie’s eyes for her twin. I can see the hatred she has for me and her need for retribution. I will pay in flesh and blood willingly because once I know she is real and not a figment of my own failure, I also know that she’s mine. We’re two hearts in pain and stranded in the snow. Can we find a way forward together?

Join your favorite Instalove romance authors from Flirt Club as we bring you a brand-new series of red-hot romances this November.
I’ve been watching and waiting for a chance to get Laurel in my arms. I shouldn’t want her since she’s the Orlov princess, but I don’t care that our families have spent generations killing each other. All I want is her. She will be the Petrov family’s queen.
I know her power, her strength, and her softness; I crave all of her. I’ll lure her to me and then I’ll never let her go. The darkness inside of me demands her submission and I don’t care if the thorns she uses to protect herself draw blood. I will gladly bleed for her.
I’ll free her of the gilded cage the Orlovs have built around her. She’s mine and I’m never letting her go. Once she’s in my arms, nothing can take her from me, not even her brothers. They can come for her, but they’ll never win.
With my brother out of town, burying himself in his own misery and guilt over something he couldn’t control, the throne of the Orlov family is vacant. It should mean freedom for me, but unfortunately the rest of my brothers think I should be caged as well. The only solace I have is my art.
When I get an offer to talk to someone in Atlantic City about a gallery show, it’s an opportunity I can’t pass up. Coming face-to-face with my family’s enemy is the last thing I expect. The Petrov name has always been sneered in my family and I know the kind of darkness that lives in Vlad.
Vlad says he wants to set me free, but I know he only wants to trap me for himself. I’ve always hated not having my freedom but being captured by Vlad is a craving I can’t deny. If he can handle my thorns, he can have me. My family will get over it or I’ll watch it all burn.

The women they love are their light and they would scorch the Earth to protect them. This December meet the men who rule their empires of crime and the women who stand by them while darkness reigns.
I’m more than happy in my life. The bakery I own with my sisters is doing well, I have a best friend who knows all my secrets and I’m content with a string of satisfying, short-lived partners in my past. It might not land me on the naughty list, but there’s only one thing I want that I haven’t grabbed ahold of with both hands. A baby.
I’m more than fine with the thought of becoming a mother without a permanent man in my life. Who needs one anyway? I know my value and none of the guys in my past have been worth more than a good time. The only guy who can keep up with me is my best friend, Corbin, and he has a wake of broken hearts behind him just like I do.
This Christmas I’m inspired to go after what I really want with no apologies. I’m not interested in a stranger’s DNA, but Corbin has a lot to offer when it comes to a baby daddy. I’m a little surprised by how seriously he’s taking the whole thing, but I’m not looking for a commitment. So, how does my heart get involved?
I’ve been good keeping my relationships with women superficial and fleeting. Why would I need anything deeper when I have Justice for all the emotional stuff? She gets me and doesn’t judge me for not being interested in more than a night or two with a woman.
We’re so similar in our love lives and we’ve never let anyone stand in the way of our friendship. Finding out she harbors a need for a baby? I did not see that one coming. When she asks me for help, I’m willing, but there’s no way a cup and a doctor is getting involved. Not when I can make my own deposits.
She thinks I’m going to give her what she needs and then go back to only being her best friend, but it’s not going to happen. The moment I experience all her curves in my hands, I know I’m a goner. I’m going to be giving her more than the two pink lines she wants for Christmas; I’m going to give her forever with me by her side.

Polish your jingle bells, strategically hang the mistletoe, and get ready to claim your spot on The Naughty List. This holiday season, fourteen of your favorite authors are spicing up the cocoa and taking advantage of those long winter nights, proving that sometimes it’s more fun to claim your coal than it is to stay on Santa’s good side. After all, well-behaved women might make the nice list, but naughty ones have all the fun…
I breathe for the Agosti family, and I would lay my life down for them without a second thought. Everything I have is because of them and I’m rewarded for my loyalty. I have no problem using the skills they’ve given me to extract revenge or payment in blood when it is required of me. When a debt is owed and ignored, I am the one who will be calling.
When Dahlia is offered up as payment by her brother, I don’t hesitate in cashing in. Not because it erases her brother’s debt, but because the moment I see her, with fear in her eyes and betrayal in her heart, I know she’s mine. I’m taking her to protect her and claim her, but her brother’s payment is far from cleared.
He thinks he’s gotten away with it, but he’ll see there is a reason people fear me. I am the king of pain, the bringer of death for the Agosti family. Dahlia is the only one who will never have to fear me. The only thing I ask for in return is her loyalty and her love.
I’ve never been close to my brother, Brett, and we’ve never liked each other much. Still, we’re family. I didn’t think he would ever do something so stupid or involved me. All the illusions I might have had about him are shattered when he uses me as payment for his debts.
When Tazio makes the deal, I should run, but there’s something about the intimidating man I can’t ignore. He doesn’t tower over me, but there is power in his frame. Maybe I can find protection there as well; if I can trust him, but I’m not sure I can.
Tazio says I’m his, but can I be loyal to a man who took me as payment for my brother’s debts, even if he did it to protect me? Can I find love with a man who knows what its like to take a life? When he proves to me that his words are true, can I make it up to him for doubting him? He’s my king and I have much more than my loyalty to give him.

Kick-off 2023 with a short slice of heaven.
Your favorite instalove romance authors have come together to bring you a fun-sized selection of mafia men, billionaires, best friends, enemies, and more. Whether you like your short kings dangerous or sweet, these men will show you that height doesn’t have to get in the way of true love.
Short Kings: proving you don’t have to be tall to have it all.
The music calls to me. It’s part of me and entwined with my soul. It’s always been my dream to follow the music where it leads me. I’m hoping it’ll be to a big break, but so far, it hasn’t been going too well.
I wasn’t expecting my music to lead me to Ophelia, but I need a place to play and she’s new in town to manage her uncle’s bar. She gives me a chance, even though she doesn’t have to. I’m just grateful to be near her because the moment I saw her, I knew my dreams brought me to the woman who is meant to be mine.
When my music leads me out of town, what does it mean for the woman who fuels my muse and my heart? What happens when my big break comes knocking? I don’t want to leave her behind, but I’m not sure I can convince her to dream a little bigger with me. Is there a way for me to get everything I want without leaving Broken Road and Ophelia?
I’ve always been told to dream bigger, but a simple life where I know my worth and who I’m headed home to at night is more my style. I have no use for broken promises and big cities. It’s what led me to take my uncle up on his offer to move to Broken Road and manage his bar.
I thought I’d settle in and find my rhythm. Then Harland bursts through the doors and begged for a chance to make his own dreams come true. As much as the promise of love I see in his eyes is real, he has bigger dreams than me.
I love the stars in his eyes, but they scare me. His dreams can’t come true in Broken Road. I can only hope, when he gets everything that he’s been working for, my heart isn’t broken under his boots as he walks away. Are his dreams all or nothing or can we find a way to get everything we want?
**18+ If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet and spicy but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. Broken Road, Texas is a small town with lots of heart and men who know how to treat their women. Meet Harland in Broken Road Wishes (coming in late December, more details soon). There is a connection to my Denver Family books through White Picket Fences Records, but there won’t be a lot of crossover or cameos in Broken Road.**
Why do men have to have all the fun? I’m not about the backward notion that men can sow their wild oats and women have to be pure and innocent. Why should we when it’s so much more fun to turn the tables?
I spend my nights tending bar at Aces and picking up a man when the mood strikes me. I don’t apologize for it and see no reason why I should. I learned a long time ago to follow the fun and stay away from the heartbreak. I’ve noticed Rhett watching me and it sparks something in me, but that doesn’t mean I’ll offer him more than one night.
When he finally approaches me, I figure he’ll be just another name in my little black book. It seems Rhett has other plans, but I can’t imagine changing for a man. Then why does it feel better in his arms than anywhere else? Why does part of me believe him when he tells me I’m his? Maybe it’s time to rise up from the lessons of my past and believe in something more.
I’ve always been a good guy—stable job, head on straight, kind to others. It doesn’t all go flying out the window when I’m out with some friends at Aces, a local club, but something shifts. The moment I see Phoenix with her hair like fire and an attitude to match, a possessiveness I’ve never known flares to life.
Part of me is wondering who I am as I stalk her until I see my chance to have a night with her, one I know will prove to her exactly what we are. The rest of me just knows it’s right. Now I have to prove it to the woman who keeps everything surface level.
I’m not just another notch on her bartop, no matter how much she thinks that’s the case. I can see the pain in her eyes and know she’s risen from the ashes before, but I’ll never let anything bad touch her again. The only fire she’ll experience from now on is when I burn her little black book because she’s mine and I’m never letting her go.

These women own their sexuality and aren’t ashamed of the notches on their bedposts. Will the heroes who come into their lives be enough to show them how good commitment can be and get these ladies to throw out their little black books? Join some of your favorite romance authors for the Notching Boots Series and find out this February.
I’m finally shedding the one-hit wonder fame after moving to White Picket Fences Records. I know what this opportunity means, but I can’t stop being me either. It’s possible I should have stopped partying and playing the field a long time ago. Sure, I don’t make it easy on the PR people, but it’s all part of the lifestyle.
At least that’s what I’ve told myself for years. Maybe it’s time to leave the groupies and bad press behind me. This tour could make or break my future and now I’ve picked up a stalker, but the label has a plan. I should have asked more questions because I was not expecting Ellington.
She’s former military and has been sent to protect me while also posing as my fake girlfriend for the press. There’s only one problem with the plan—on sight I want her, and she can’t stand me. I don’t know how I’m going to finish this tour, save my image, and make Ellington realize there’s nothing fake between us while also surviving my stalker.
Meeting Hayes Jennings on WPF Record’s private jet leaves me with a bad first impression even though the chemistry between us fires me up in ways I’ve never experienced before. It doesn’t matter because he’s a job and a playboy. I don’t do bad boys—consider it a lesson learned.
I’ve been in worse spots than this before and come out the other side. I just need to get through this tour with Hayes while keeping it professional, except in front of the cameras when I have to pretend to adore him. If only that were as difficult as I want it to be.
Hayes might be temptation on two legs with a voice I long to hear singing to me in the middle of the night, but I’ll keep those feelings locked down. It’s easy to pretend like I can’t stand him, but it would be nice if my heart felt the same. I have a job to do and I’m going to do everything in my power to keep him safe, help with his public image, and show the guys at Higgins Security that they made the right decision when they hired me. Yeah, piece of cake.

Join your favorite instalove romance authors from Flirt Club as we kick off the year with seven brand-new, extra steamy romances this February!
One night to dance in the moonlight. I’m taking one night and forgetting everything that brings me down. I won’t worry about the way my family ignores me unless they want to use me. I won’t think about the uncertain future ahead of me and the marriage my father is trying to arrange for his own purposes.
I almost don’t make it to the ball because of my sister’s selfishness, which is nothing new. It seems I have at least one person on my side because I get to revel in the sparkle of the Guidice Ball. Then I meet them—two men who have danger written all over them who give me a night I can never forget.
If only I didn’t have to go back to the life waiting for me where obligations I don’t want weigh me down. Long after the clock strikes midnight, I can still feel their hands on me. But one night is all I’ll ever have. The thought of them finding me is just a fairytale woven in moonlight.
I was born to stand next to Dante Guidice; it’s the only path I’ve ever known, and he’s earned my loyalty. I had no idea that being who I am would lead me to a night that changes my life. Sharing a woman with Zeno isn’t something I expected, but it is right. Then the next morning, she’s gone.
The thing our Moonlight needs to realize is that nothing is going to stop us from finding her and making her ours.
Being trusted by the Guidice family isn’t what I expected out of life, but the family saved me and gave me a home. I never expected to find a woman who set my heart aflame, nor did I think I’d share her with Tony. When she disappears, I’m grateful for the skills I’ve gained. Finding Posy ends up being the easy part, it’s keeping her that tests our skills.
Our Posy is going to learn an important lesson—we’ll do anything to protect her and never let her go because her moonlight is what leads us home.

This year Mardi Gras is about more than indulging in good food before the fast, it’s about these heroines finding pleasure and love with more than one man. Join some of your favorite romance authors for the Mardi Gras Menage series! Laissez les bon temps rouler, indeed.
I love my job and my crew. The owners of J&J Construction put a lot of trust in me, and I strive to give my job everything I have. I pride myself on my calm façade on the job and off, even if I am a man of few words.
That flies out the window when Madison comes onto my job site to complain about the noise. I can almost see the steam coming out of her ears, but she’s not the client and I have a job to do. She gets under my skin and with one look I know why.
I might not be able to do anything about how loud it can get, but I can find a way to make it up to her if she’ll let me. Madison and her sassy attitude are mine and I’m not letting her go. I know she watches me, and it only fuels the fire within me to claim her. I’ll soothe her annoyance and make her forget about anything other than building a future with me.
The racket from next door is going to drive me up the wall. I’ve confronted the foreman, Lawson, about the issue and it didn’t go very well. I can’t concentrate on my work and it’s not just the noise that’s the problem. My thoughts are invaded by a certain foreman with a dad bod so cuddlable that it makes me want to beg him to let me snuggle with him.
It’s too bad I made a horrible first impression and now can only watch from my window even when I tell myself I won’t do it anymore. When he catches me checking him out, is he going to make fun of me and continue to hold my bad attitude against me? It wasn’t my finest hour; I’ll be the first one to admit it.
When he asks me out, I wonder if he’s trying to teach me a lesson or if he’s for real. I could see a future with him, wrapped up in his beefy arms. Can he see a future with me or am I just a harpy with no manners?

When the dust settled after the Halloween party that changed so many lives, I was left in the shadows. I watched the people I lived next to for years forget about me as they picked up the pieces of their lives. How could they find a new normal when I’m left no better than fog?
Darkness and bitterness have become my constant companions and I have no doubt that’s how it will always be. Even though I’m angry, what else can I do but continue to watch from the darkest corners of Screaming Woods while everyone goes on? I’m not expecting a light to suddenly appear.
Caroline isn’t all monster, but, as a child of our resident wolfman and his mate, she’s not all human either. As much as I want to give into the pull to her, I’ve spent far too long existing within the shadows. She deserves more, but that won’t stop me from watching her.
Finding my place in Screaming Woods hasn’t been easy for me. I’m not a monster, but I’m not a human like my mom. I’m something in between. I don’t know where I belong in the only home I’ve ever known.
When I turn 18, it feels like there’s something pulling me into the darkest parts of the forest where only shadows live. I ignore it as best I can, but I can feel someone’s eyes on me, waiting for me, calling to me. Something is missing and I have no idea what it is.
When I go in search of what is stalking me, I find light in the darkness. My parents are mates, but I never thought I’d find mine. Finding out my mate is someone everyone else forgot about long ago, when he became one with the shadows, is something out of a dream…or a nightmare. How can we find our future together when he’s a shadow of who he was with burning resentment for everyone who left him behind?
**18+ If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet and spicy but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. Read about Caroline’s parents and get an introduction to Screaming Woods in Knot Running From Fate.**

Being a mafia princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and the only person who understands is my best friend, Fleur, who happens to be a motorcycle club princess. We forged our friendship in understanding, and we keep it going by finding adventure together. That’s what led us to Club Sin and every time we go back it feels like we’re searching for something.
I never thought I’d come face-to-face with the Falsini Triplets at Club Sin. I thought I could go unnoticed, but they know who I am and now they know my secret. There is a price to pay for their silence, but it’s worth it. Right up until I lose my heart to the three men my family will never accept.
After taking over for our father, my brothers and I want more than the scraps the Falsini family have been allowed before. Our sister had her sights set on Dante Guidice, but she failed and made our family an embarrassment. We’ve been making plays, but we need a bigger plan. Dante might be the king of New Orleans when it comes to organized crime, but getting the Guidice princess on our side will bring us more power.
What happens when it’s more than just a plan and I give into wanting Viola forever?
Following Viola to find a weakness we can use against the Guidice family isn’t a bad job considering she’s a gorgeous woman. I never expected to find out her secret is the time she spends at Club Sin. Now that I know, I want nothing more than to use it to our advantage. I’ll thoroughly enjoy putting our plan into motion and finding out what makes her fall apart behind closed doors.
The moment we get her between us, it becomes more than an advantage; it becomes a claiming.
My brothers have never had much vision outside of the business and their quest for power, not like me. I’ve known Viola was the endgame and have been working toward making her our princess for longer than I’ll admit to my brothers. They had to think it was all their idea. The plan may put us and Viola in danger, but she’s worth it and always has been.
Once they get a taste, they’ll know what I do—we’ll always protect what is ours and Viola belongs to us.

I’ve always been on the outside looking in and I prefer it that way. The connection I have to the Agosti family through my brother, Tazio, and best friend, Daisy, means I know that the world can be a dark place. Tazio has tried to shield me from it all and I’ve let him because I would rather fade into the shadows where it’s safe and I can simply be me.
I have dreams of a family, a life that doesn’t involve the violence of the world, and to feel cherished. I’ve been building the life I wanted, but then Tazio falls in love, and it destroys my quiet world in ways no one could have predicted. All because of a brother’s love and Kiefer’s need to protect his sister from Tazio.
When Kiefer takes me, it’s to use me as a bargaining chip. I shouldn’t want him, but no other man has ever made my body light up like he does. He doesn’t believe me when I tell him Dahlia and Tazio are in love. After Kiefer possesses me and the smoke from the inevitable collision clears what will be left of me? How many pieces of myself will I have to pick up and put back together?
The only family I’ve ever truly valued and loved is my sister. Finding out she was put in danger because of our brother is something I almost can’t comprehend. Dahlia says she’s found the other half of her soul, but how can that be when our brother tried to sell her to the man she supposedly loves to pay a debt?
I never knew I had to protect my sister from herself, but she can’t be thinking straight. I’ve put everything else on hold while planning how to get her away from the monster who won’t let her go. The Agosti family is full of criminals, and I’ll sell my soul to the devil to get my sister back.
My plan is to trade my sister for his sister. I’m doing this to save my sister, not possess the shy, quiet woman I’ve been watching while I’ve formed my plan. When I can’t ignore the way Hyacinth calls to me and how badly I want her, I realize I’ve made a miscalculation in my plan. I can only hope it’s not too late to have everything I want—my life, with my sister in it, and my woman in my arms.
**18+. This story has dark themes, a morally gray hero, and a heroine who is treated as a mafia princess. You’ll still find an insta-love story that is spicy and isn’t necessarily simple, but with darker themes, situations, rough spicy times, and depictions of violence (not between the MMC and MFC). No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. This book is part of my Agosti Crime Family series but can be read as a standalone. Meet the Agosti family in Flames and Flowers. Check out the chronological reading order for the Agosti Crime Family books below. Hyacinth is mentioned throughout the series and Kiefer is introduced in King of Pain and Petals. **
They live in the shadows and have their own moral compass that guides them. These men and women don't follow your rules. They make their own. When they meet their perfect partner, nothing else matters. They'll do whatever it takes to win the owner of their Dark Hearts.

Having everything in order and sticking to my routine is the way I cope with my past. It keeps the nightmares contained. I can’t let them out. I’m already scared enough of the shadows as it is. When I remember, they overtake my world.
Which is why I call my family for help when I’m stranded on the side of the road and fear is stretching toward me and about to swallow me. I’m assured that the man coming to help me is a friend, someone my brother-in-law, Ryder, trusts. I didn’t expect he would take my breath away…or chase away my demons.
Theo revs my engine, but I can’t imagine that I’m enough for a man like him. Saving me when I’m stranded isn’t the only thing he does. He makes me feel whole and I give my trust and my body to him. I can only hope my past won’t taint my future and he won’t break my heart.
For so long all I’ve had is my business. Restoring old cars is a passion I got from my father. It’s opened doors for me and given me a purpose, but the older I’ve gotten the more I realize it hasn’t given me much else. I didn’t realize a friendship I forged over a metal frame would bring my woman into my life, one I can’t live without.
When I get the phone call to help Sarah, it only takes one look into her vulnerable eyes to know I’ll do anything to get her to trust me. She’s haunted and quiet, living in her head more than experiencing life. I plan to show her how good living can be while getting her to fall for me.
I’m going to make Sarah mine. I’ll pop her hood and fix her car. I’ll shelter her. I’ll love her. I’ll show her just how good I am with my hands and then I’m never letting her go.

The moment I researched Candy Cane Key, I knew it would be the perfect location for the photoshoot my boss has been hired to do. Who doesn’t love Christmas in July…or any time of year? Like with all the places I’ve traveled with the photographer I work for, I’m looking forward to seeing it in person. When I arrive at Candy Cane Key, it feels like the perfect place for a vacation even though I have to work.
Hayden seems like the perfect guy to be my guide and help me find the right location for the shoot, even though he’s gruff and doesn’t seem to like me very much. I just need him to do his job and I’ll do mine. Hayden can’t help me find the perfect location and setting out on my own proves to be a disaster, one he saves me from while sparks fly between us.
After finding the location, nothing about the shoot goes right and when I’m asked to be in front of the camera, with my curves on display, Hayden doesn’t seem happy. I’ve been falling in love with Candy Cane Key and Hayden, but maybe he’s not the right guy for me. If only my heart got the memo.
I love everything about Candy Cane Key, except for the tourists. They don’t respect our little slice of Christmas heaven the same way the locals do. They’re always wanting something to capitalize on, but I try and push my resentment down because I have a business to run.
Even though normally I charter private fishing trips, I take the job when someone reaches out about touring the island to find a spot for a photoshoot. I wasn’t prepared to meet Bristol, a curvy goddess who takes my breath away and makes me forget I have manners. I’m surly when it comes to her, and I can’t explain it; I should have known her stubbornness would get her in trouble.
The way we clash puts her in a position where she needs me to rescue her, and I have to claim her. When I finally get the opportunity to see her work, nothing goes to plan and then she comes alive when given the chance to be in front of the camera. We’re so different and even though I know she’s mine, I don’t know if I can keep her.

When I start to question my life and the meaningless hookups that have kept me away from anything real, a little black card is dropped into my hand. I’m not sure a matchmaker can give me everything I am looking for, but I’ve always been willing to live on the wild side and find out what fate has in store for me. Maybe it’s a sign.
I shouldn’t have questioned KNK because not only do they give me what I desire the most, they give me McKenzie. She thinks we’re only having a little fun, but she’s going to find out quickly that she’s mine now. She’ll adapt to the life I lead as part of the Devil’s Saints MC and become my old lady.
I’ve always known I wanted a woman like her, but never thought I’d find her. She’s perfect—the right mix of lady, quiet and sass—and she doesn’t mind my need for control. I’ll do whatever I have to in order to keep her. She belongs on the back of my bike where she fits perfectly.
I’ve had my share of bad luck, but lately things have been looking up. I have a job I love in a new city and I’m settling in. I don’t need a lot to make me happy, but I know there’s something missing. Maybe the little black card someone slips me might be just the thing I’m looking for.
Even if it doesn’t work out, I’m all about trying new things in my new home. I’ve never been adventurous before, but why not now? When I meet Bronco, he’s not what I’m expecting, but something tells me he can give me what I desire most—a sense of comfort when I’ve had to be independent for so long…and a firm hand.
I’m not sure if his life and his club is right for me, but there’s something about being with him that I can’t ignore. We’re opposites in so many ways, but he seems to know me better than I know myself. KNK seems to have made a good match with us, we fit perfectly. The only question is if it’ll last or if we’re just a good time.
