I’m a good girl.
 
I live by a code
that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and
pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.
 
But Nikolai Kozlov
re-writes my destiny with five simple words.
 
You belong to me
now.
 
He’s Russian mafiya.
A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have
been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he
wants without a second thought.
 
And what he wanted
was me.
 
He thinks he
controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls
you have to watch out for. 
 
 
I’m a dangerous man.
 
I live by a code.
The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To
destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.
 
She’s a dancer. A
beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia
princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply
collateral.
 
It’s a shame to
destroy precious things.
 
But this is what bad
men do.

All.

I don’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore.

My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.

I’ve lost my soul.

She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.

Sixty lives are mine to take.

Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.

Sixty lives plus one more.

Mine.

When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.

Only one person stands in the way.

She doesn’t realize I’ll kill her too.

I don’t own a heart.

And even if I did — I wouldn’t fall prey to its lies again.

I am Chase Abandonato.

Heir to a legacy of betrayal.

And I will kill them all.

Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.

A life for a life.

A soul for a soul.

Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

Blood in. No out.

Excerpt:
My arm trembles as I grip the cool handle of my pistol, keeping a firm grasp to ensure it
doesn’t slip out of my sweaty hand. It usually stands sentry in my left nightstand to scare the
nightmares away. But this isn’t a dream. The room is dark and hides the face of the man whose
intent is to kill me. But I know who he is. A metallic taste fills my mouth; I want to gag. My
blood drips off the blade in his hand in slow, steady beats on the carpet. My arms shake as I lift
the barrel and point it in his direction. He doesn’t move. His heavy breaths alert me to the meager
distance between us.
We’re at a stalemate.
A soft glow from the lamppost just outside my window casts a sliver of light on his face.
His dark, beady eyes that I have grown to know rake over my body like I’m another one of his
many victims. He lifts the edges of his mouth into a smile. My heart plunges into my stomach. I
know what that sinister expression means, and I think back to all the times he had looked at me
like that before. I had been so blind.
Before I react he lunges at me, grabbing onto my waist and twisting me to the ground. I
shriek as my head slams against the bed frame. Black spots flood my vision. I squeeze my hand
only to find it empty. My gun is gone. The sound of the knife clattering on the floor gives me
slight hope. Not much though. He climbs up my body trying to pin my arms to the floor. I thrash
my fists around, desperate to knock him off.
“Get off!” I scream, pulling on his shirt and kicking him off balance. Wrapping his hands
around my arms, my attacker cuts off the circulation of blood. Rug burns flare across my skin as
he drags me across the carpet. He closes his hands around my neck, shutting off my air supply. I
pull at his hands but it’s no use; he has always been stronger than me. My pulse drums a frantic
beat in my ears. The air slowly leaks out from my lungs, killing any hope I may have left. I
search for the gun around the room; it may be my only savior now.
“Why are you doing this?” I struggle to get the words out. He squints his dark eyes. I’m
wondering if there might be a chance that he will stop this madness. I am wrong.
“It’ll be over soon, sweetheart.” His hands again tighten around my neck, blocking the air
from entering my lungs.

It was his lips.
The way his stare sent shivers down my spine.
The way his rough voice whispered my name.

So I caved.
I did what I knew I shouldn’t.

But as quickly as he’s there, he’s gone.
Leaving me confused. 
Devastated.
I hope I’ll never see him again…

Then I do. 

He’s my new boss. 
And he has secrets.

*Sordid is a COMPLETE standalone novel.

“The Wolf has played me for a fool.”

I’ve no clue who is hunting me, but he demands I complete his tests. I fear if I can’t figure out his identity, he’ll kill me just like he said. 

His eyes were blue the last time I looked into them, but now when he glares at me they’re green. Is the Wolf playing dress up? Or are there two monsters who have stolen me?

“Did you think I’d make this easy for you, Red? Are you ready to play again?” – The Wolf 

I want out of this nightmare, and the only way to do that is to win.

I need to win.

Theirs was a secret they’d kill to protect. 

One.

Two.

Three cracks of thunder. Three reasons to run and hide.

When the lightning illuminated the night, I saw their bloodied faces. They were no longer the boys from next door. As quick as the storm rolled over the neighborhood, a crime of passion was committed, Lucas and Mason Carter dangerously altering the course of all our lives.

Ten years later, on my twenty-sixth birthday, when detectives come digging for information on a cold case, I find myself once again unwillingly tangled in the spider’s web.

I hold information on a heinous crime. I have become the number one target. More specific, I have become Mason Carter’s obsession.

While one brother seeks to destroy me, I have to believe the love I share for the other could somehow save us all.

When running proves futile, I’m left with a choice. Reveal the deadly truth, or dare to take on the monsters lurking in the dark.
