Blurb:
Massimo Ferrucci is a third-generation Zanetti famiglia Made Man. Born a bastard. His mother, a mistress. His father, cruel and hard. Raised by a woman who held no affection for him.

Pippa Mazzilli has only ever craved freedom. Forced to live with an aunt who cares nothing for her other than the financial security her existence provides. When the money runs out, Pippa is turned away from her home.

Scared. Alone. Desperate. Pippa runs to the very men that she has despised her entire life. Men that she swore she would never subject herself or her future to—Zanetti famiglia men.

A match is made, an arrangement that cannot be undone. Unchangeable events unfold for the new couple that are out of even the famiglias control. The Street Boss must decide if he can give Pippa not just what she needs to survive, but what she desires to thrive.

Excerpt
“Because, dolcezza. I have never had a gift quite like you before. I have never had something that I’ve dreamt about, but thought was completely out of my reach. I have that now. I have you, and I want your smiles. I want them aimed right at me.”
“My smiles?” I ask.
He grins, though it doesn’t reach his eyes, and I vow to myself that one day it will. I’ll make his smile reach those dark eyes. I’ll make him belly laugh the way that Carlo did. I’ll give him beautiful laugh crinkles next to his eyes and gorgeous lines around his mouth.
I will do that for him, not because he’s some perfectly good man, but because I think that he needs it and maybe if I do that for him, he’ll be the man that I need him to be for me. It’s selfish, though aren’t we all, by human nature, selfish?

About the Author:
As an only child, Hayley Faiman had to entertain herself somehow. She started writing stories at the age of six and never really stopped.
Born in California, she met her now husband at the age of sixteen and married him at the age of twenty in 2004. After all of these years together, he’s still the love of her life.

Hayley’s husband joined the military and they lived in Oregon, where he was stationed with the US Coast Guard. They moved back to California in 2006, where they had two little boys. Recently, the four of them moved out to the Hill Country of Texas, where they adopted a new family member, a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.

Most of Hayley’s days are spent taking care of her two boys, going to the baseball fields for practice, or helping them with homework. Her evenings are spent with her husband and her nights—those are spent creating alpha book boyfriends.

Forbidden love…is undeniable.

When she was younger, like all little girls, Sophie Hawkins believed in fantasies. She believed in happily-ever-after and that one day her prince would come. What made Sophie’s dreams a bit different was that the man of her dreams wasn’t a fictional prince but her best friend’s dad.

Matt was handsome and nice, the kind of man every woman would want.

Time passes, and through the years, Sophie’s reality changes, yet her attraction and memories of Matt Hamilton never fade. Where boys and men are concerned, Matt remains her gold standard.

When his daughter was young, Matt Hamilton had it all: a family and success.

With the ticking of the clock and changing of the calendar, seasons pass and situations adjust. Business success remains, but personally, his world changes…until the day fate sets the undeniable in motion.

Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.

Hudson Bradley is the cockiest, most stubborn, hard-headed man I’ve ever known. And for fifteen years, he’s been my brother’s best friend.

But lately, what I’m feeling for him isn’t friendship at all.

Why is my heart racing every time his blue eyes lock on mine?
Why does every word he rumbles in my ear make my body come alive?
And worst of all, why did I bet him that I could find a woman he and his son would both love?

If I hadn’t given up on love altogether, Hudson would have been perfect for me. After all, he was there the day my world fell apart. He’s spent the last six years piecing me back together.

There are a million reasons why we could never work, but after a single kiss, I can’t remember any of them.

Now that the time is right, I have to make him mine—before I lose him forever.

The devil in my nightmares is the man of my dreams.

For the past three years, I’ve been running from a man I’ve never met. A man who carries a grudge. A man who specializes in revenge. I thought I had it all—a career and a new home in a sleepy small town. My world comes crashing down when a sexy gang member from the city arrives at my job, wrapped in tattoos and sinful smiles. Beneath his flirtatious facade beats the heart of an angry man. I’ve committed the one sin he can never forgive. I stole from him, and he won’t be satisfied until he’s repaid with the money or my life.

They say there are two kinds of power: power derived from fear and power obtained by acts of love. Cash Delacorte holds them both over my head. He’s everything I never wanted: dark, deceptive, and dedicated to a life of crime. He’s determined to pull me into the darkness with him, and the thing is—I want to go. Every kiss, every lie, every punishment propels me into a future I never dreamed possible.

Excerpt
Using the keys in his pocket, he unlocks the case, removes the pendant, and drapes it around my neck. The tips of his fingers sweep over my nape as he brushes my hair aside and fastens the clasp. He tugs down the shoulder of my dress to press a kiss on the revealed skin. I let him because I’m too enamored with the priceless piece to protest.

“It’s beautiful.” The pitch of my voice is higher than normal. Together, we stare at my reflection in the oval mirror on the counter, his face hovering above my shoulder. His chest presses against my back. We look good together—me, Cash, and the blue diamond. I drag my fingertips over the cold stone.

“What else do you like?” His hot breath sears the outer shell of my ear.

“This one.” I point toward a princess cut diamond ring with a platinum band and a surround of tiny sapphires.

He removes the ring from its resting place. I hold out my hand, but he stops a few inches short of my reach. Challenge illuminates his chiseled features. “Before I give this to you, you’re gonna need to take something off. You know. Balance.”

My heart skips a beat. Nothing turns me on like expensive jewelry—nothing but Cash. The combination of both is more than I can withstand. The prudent choice would be to leave, but the shimmer of ice around my neck and the heat in his gaze unleash a primal need. After his return of the money, I’m feeling more drawn to him than ever. The unexpected glimpse into his softer side works as an aphrodisiac. We lock gazes. I begin to step out of my high heels. He shakes his head. “Not those. Those can stay.” The tip of his tongue sweeps over his lower lip. “How about your panties?”

About Carrie Gray:
I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.
