Love doesn’t come into it when you are fighting a war and sometimes the best weapons are the most unexpected.


I ran from two monsters into the arms of another.

Domenico Ortega.

Mafia Prince

His dark good looks, brimming with masculine intensity, make my heart beat a little faster. The way he stares at me through those demonic eyes causes me to shiver, and it’s not out of fear. When he speaks, his voice is husky and laced with dangerous intent, and I crave every syllable. Then there’s his magnificent body that could crush a woman’s heart as well as a man’s soul, and I would gladly sacrifice my own to his.

Then I discovered the people I ran from are on his wanted list and he locked me in his mansion as part of a twisted revenge.

Fraud, dishonesty and theft aren’t the only things he wants from me.

He also wants my soul.

He’s not the only one.

It turns out he’s not the villain in my story after all.

There is something more sinister out there who hides behind sick rituals and blood-drenched altars.

Will my dark Prince come for me or will my story end unhappily ever after?

Welcome to the Black Diamond Ski Resort. My name is Michael Alatorre. I encourage you to enjoy my hospitality to the fullest! 

This is my kingdom. A beautiful wonderland of ice and decadence. 

In my domain, I am known as the King of Luxury. Everything you might ever need or want is available to you… for a price. 

But be warned. Depending on how you repay my hospitality, that price may be your life. 

Please, enjoy your stay.

It should have been just one night.
One insane night where I tossed out inhibitions, my reserved nature… my brain cells.
I let myself go with a total stranger.
I had no idea who he was.
Just that he protected me. Made me feel safe.
And I did what any self respecting girl would do after a crazy, mind-blowing night.
I waited till he took a shower and snuck the hell out of there.

To the outside world, I’m known only as Z. The enforcer. A widower with nothing to lose. An ex-SEAL sworn to keep one vow: protect the D’Angelo’s at all costs.
I’m not a good man, and I never claimed to be.
Protecting her was second nature. Nothing more.
Claiming her was just a one-night escape.

But she made one mistake … a cardinal sin.
Slipping away on her terms. Not mine.

No strings.
No commitments.
No names?

No way.

There’s just one price for my protection.
And it’s her.


The only reason I agreed to go on a blind date were the two Knicks tickets I was promised for my time.

What I didn’t expect was for her to pass on me.
Me, the playboy who never sees the same woman twice.
This has to be a joke.

Now I have no choice but to prove her wrong.
In one week she’ll be begging for me to stay.
Then I’ll say goodbye to her long legs and smart mouth without a second thought.

But when the time comes, will I truly be able to walk away?

The hot, bad-boy drummer and the straight-laced, good-girl doctor sure know how to generate some heat in the middle of a blizzard…

Cocky rocker Danny Colton didn’t think taking temporary care of his uncle’s building would be half as exciting as drumming, until he meets the nerdy, prissy doctor in 7B and his blood starts pumping in a way he’s never felt on stage. Unfortunately she’s all work and no play and sadly immune to his charms. But then a blizzard descends and they find themselves stranded in the broken down building elevator – alone.

Hard working and perpetually sleep deprived, Dr Holly Vincent doesn’t have time for a hot AF drummer who makes her feel like she’s dropped a hundred IQ points whenever she’s in his presence. She really doesn’t have time to be stuck in an elevator with him in the middle of a blizzard – alone. She’s supposed to be sleeping after her night shift not making awkward small talk with the smug drummer who looks like he knows exactly how to pass the time.  

The last thing Holly expects is a shockingly illicit proposition from Danny. The fact she’s actually considering it, is even more shocking. But everyone know what happens in the broken elevator during a blizzard, stays in the elevator.


So why not indulge a little with the guy who looks like he invented the term going down….?

I’m forty, flabby, and frustrated.

Then he died.

After the grief took its course, and the reality of my new life settled in, I grew frustrated. It wasn’t the bills or the struggle to keep my interest in my career. It was life without a man – the only man I’d been with for two decades. And before you go all feminist on me, it wasn’t that I couldn’t be an independent woman.

You need a f*ck buddy, my friend said.

I didn’t even know what that meant.

Is it friends with benefits? I asked.

Better, you don’t even have to be friends.

Boy, did I need an education in the modern workings of dating . . . and sex.
