Thin Lives
Donati Bloodlines #3

Publication Date: September 6, 2016

Genres: Adult, Mafia Romance, Contemporary, Romance

✾ Synopsis ✾

Emma Donati

Some days, it felt like Emma had just imagined it all.
Like maybe everything she had been with Calisto was just a dream.
Emma knew it was crazy — it was impossible to forget what she had shared with Calisto Donati. All their love, the stolen moments, their foulness together, and the beauty underneath it all were real.
They were real.
But he didn't know.
He didn't know any of it.
And little by little, with every day that passed her by, Emma found she was losing those pieces that reminded her they had existed once.
Just like the rosary.
All too soon, Emma knew... there would be nothing left.

Calisto Donati

Emma hadn't given him a choice.
Her, not him.
Yeah, that's what Calisto was going to keep telling himself. He refused to feed into the strange curiosity he had about Emma Donati. It had been building from the moment he'd first seen her face after he'd awakened. He wouldn't admit that for longer than he cared to admit, he thought there was more behind her false smile, polite words, and the distance she put between her and him — that there might be more to them.
He couldn't.
Except... he was feeding into it.
Calisto just wasn't sure what it was.
But tonight he was going to find out.
Whether she wanted to tell him or not.


The final Bloodlines novel.

✿ Excerpt ✿

Suddenly, he lifted his arm and two of Calisto's fingers stroked Emma's cheek. Gently. Tenderly. Almost knowingly.

Before she could stop herself, the familiarity in his action had her tilting her face into the palm of his hand, and then his thumb grazed over her cheekbone like he had done so many times before.

It took Emma all of three seconds to realize what she was doing before she blinked out of her daze and took a huge step away from Calisto. He sucked in a sharp breath at her action, like she'd somehow hurt him.

"I-I have to go," Emma said.

Calisto took a tentative step forward, hands up as if to reach for her. "Just wait a second, please."

"No, I—"

"Don't run right now. I just want you to tell me the truth."

"I did!" Emma winced at the level of her shout before adding quieter, "I did about the baby and the date."

"But we're back to the same thing again like before. How close were we, Emma, that I couldn't wait outside your hospital room during the delivery? How close that you only gave the baby to me to hand off? How close that I had to tattoo the date of that event on my body forever? What else is there about us that you're not telling me?"


There was everything, and she was scared.

"Stop," she whispered, willing the anxiety in her tone away.

They were too close to Affonso's car, or even one of his men.

"Emma, wait!"

"Stop, Cal," she repeated stronger.

Calisto threw his arms wide, seemingly unbothered by where they were or by who might be watching. "I just want answers."

"I can't give them to you."

Emma knew the truth of their situation, and why Calisto couldn't see what was right in front of his face. He had so much love and respect in his heart for Affonso that the idea he might have betrayed his uncle was the very last thing he might consider as something he could do to the man. And so, he was looking for other things, instead of the obvious.

She was terrified what might happen if he found out the truth before he gained his memories back. What would that do to him? Would he even be able to protect her and their child, or would he be torn between the knowledge of what he had done and his falsely-grown affection and wrongly placed loyalty for Affonso?

If she was forced to tell him what she knew about the things that had transpired between him and Affonso before she even came into the picture, would he resent her for ruining what he believed was his life?

Would he hate her?

Emma couldn't bear the thought of that at all.

She just didn't know what to do. Not for him. But she knew she had to protect herself and his baby. Until things were clearer, that's the one and only thing Emma would do.

"What is it?" Calisto asked suddenly. "It's all over your face — you're just standing there like you don't even know which way to go."

Emma blinked up at him, realizing that in one single statement, he had summed up everything that was wrong with her without even properly understanding why. Even being lost like he was, Calisto still knew her. He was still in there somewhere.

"Are you torn?" he asked softly. "About me?"

She stayed quiet.

Calisto wasn't looking for that. "Just answer me. I'm missing something. I've been missing something since I woke up from that coma. I only want to know what it is."

"I... I am torn, but I don't know."

Emma didn't know a lot of things, and for that, she was sorry.

"Then how about I help, huh? I'm going to look for it. Whatever it is you're hiding that you don't want me to know, I am going to look for it, Emma."

"Then do what you need to do, Cal, but don't get killed in the process."

That was just about the best and only warning Emma could give Calisto. As it was, she had already given him too much.

It was like playing with fire.

And she wouldn't survive the burns.

Thin Lies
Donati Bloodlines #1

Publication Date: May 2, 2016

Genres: Romantic Suspense, Erotic Romance, Organized Crime

✾ Synopsis ✾

Calisto Donati

She was just a woman. That's what Calisto wanted to tell himself; that's what he wanted to believe. Emma was nothing more than a woman. There were other women for him to want. To obsess over.
It couldn't be Emma Sorrento.
Not for Calisto.
She was taken.
She was claimed.
She was not his.
In a few days, Calisto would hand her off, and that would be that. He wondered why it wouldn't be that easy to let her go.
What good had saving her done?
He had simply taken her from one monster to give her to another.

Emma Sorrento

Emma slid on her mask. All someone would need to do was look close enough to see what was really beneath the sheer falseness of her smile.
At the other end of the table, Emma found her lies staring her right in the face.
He smirked.
And winked.
Calisto Donati was her worst mistake, her greatest shame, and the one thing she still wanted more than anything. Emma could still feel him all over her, long after his touch and kiss was gone. In thirty days, her entire world had changed — he had changed her.
Emma had a feeling that if she played another game with Calisto, she would surely lose.
She had already lost once.
Wasn't it enough?

WARNING: The first two books in the Donati Bloodlines Trilogy end on a cliffhanger, and are not considered safe romance.

Thin Lines
Donati Bloodlines #2

Publication Date: July 5, 2016

Genres: Adult, Organized Crime, Erotic Romance

✾ Synopsis ✾

Calisto Donati

Calisto had never been a fan of pain, but he found it provided a certain relief.
It was a high that couldn't compete with anything else he experienced. That was why he fought bare-knuckled, why he drove fast, despite knowing he might crash, and why he still enjoyed looking at Emma Donati — no matter her current status.
Pain felt good.
He might have been a fool for doing so, but as long as he got what he wanted from it, he didn't really care.
When he fought, he was given release. When he drove, he was given freedom. When he looked at Emma, he was given memories.
All of them brought a certain level of pain. All three might kill him someday.
Calisto glanced at Emma, taking her in again when she didn't know he was looking.
He realized then that only one might actually be worth dying for.

Emma Sorrento

Emma kept her gaze on the book in her lap, pretending like there wasn't an argument going on across the room. She had become terribly good at acting like she didn't hear.
Calisto watched her out of the corner of his eye while he argued on with Affonso.
She was too focused on Calisto to care about their fight.
His anger. The tightness of his jaw. Searing soul-black eyes.
The two men were not the same. They might have shared blood, but their hearts were entirely different. One man never let her out of his sight when he was nearby. The other acted like she didn't exist.
This was what it was like, she realized, to be in love with someone she couldn't have.
Calisto Donati would never be hers.
This wasn't a fairy tale that would end happily.
They weren't star-crossed. They were impossible.

WARNING: The first two books in the Donati Bloodlines Trilogy end on a cliffhanger, the third is a HEA.

The driver began to shout something in Portuguese. The way his finger was wagging, I assumed he was telling the person that the cab was full. But the passenger didn't listen. Next thing I knew, I was sitting next to someone in the back seat.

Someone wearing a uniform.

Captain Carter Clynes in the flesh.

He turned to face me with a wicked grin on his face. "My layover just got more interesting."

Damn. He seemed to have grown that stubble overnight.

"How was your flight, Perky? Did you enjoy the ride I gave you?"

"My shirt's dry. I think you can drop the Perky."

His eyes lowered to my breasts. Of course, my nipples were standing at full attention since the sheen of sweat on my skin had met the cool air-conditioning inside the cab.

Carter scrubbed his hands over his face. "Damn. You weren't kidding about those things. I haven't slept in eighteen hours, and they just woke me up. I think they're contagious, and I'm fucking perky now."

"That's not really an appropriate thing to say to a woman you just met, you know."

"We didn't just meet. This is our third date."

"Third date?"

"I bought you dinner in an elegant restaurant for our first one and took you up for a plane ride for our second one. Those were damn good dates. Some women would kill for that kind of lavishness. Seems fitting date three we should be heading to a hotel." He winked.

I wasn't sure if it was the time change, my being tired from restless sleep on the plane, or if it was possible this man could say anything and I wouldn't be offended. Why am I not I offended?

When I didn't respond, he continued. "I'm glad I saw you. Didn't think I would ever see you again."

"That might be because you didn't look for me."

"I never thought you'd actually take my suggestion and fly to Brazil."

I mumbled. "Neither did I."

The cab driver interrupted, looking between us to ask, "You share cab, yes?"

Surprising me, Carter answered. In Portuguese. The language that sounded choppy and frustrating just two minutes ago, suddenly sounded sexy and romantic.

He turned back to me in English. "What hotel are you staying at?"

"I was just trying to figure that out with a little help from Google. Do you have one to recommend?"

"You trust me to pick out where you'll stay tonight?"

I considered his question for a minute. It was illogical, that much I knew, but I did trust him to pick my hotel. Lord knows why. "I think I do."

That response earned me another sexy grin that had me more excited than I'd been in the last year.

Almost a half-hour later, we were finally off the highway and traveling into what looked like a residential neighborhood. "Barra da Tijuca." I read the street sign aloud.

"Very good. I should probably warn you. It's probably not the type of hotel you're used to."

"What does that mean?"

"You look like you're more of the luxury chain with a spa type of woman, that's all."

Even though that was exactly what I'd typed into Google, when he said it that way, it sounded like a bad thing. It made me defensive. "And what's wrong with a luxury hotel? Sometimes a girl needs a massage and a soak in a nice bathtub while traveling."

"Well, you certainly won't be getting either of those where we're heading." Carter caught my eye. "Unless I'm the one doing the massaging, that is."

I blushed, which caused Carter to chuckle. "You really are fucking adorable. I'm not sure what's sexier, the fact that you're up for letting me take you on this little adventure, or that you secretly like the thought of me giving you a massage."

"I do not!" My quick, defensive response only confirmed he was right.

He leaned to me. "Do, too."

"You're off base."

"That's a shame. I've been told I'm really good with my hands." He held out his hands in front of him, examining them. Big hands. Hands that looked like he used them to do some actual work when he wasn't flying a plane.

✾ Synopsis ✾

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose?

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.

For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I'd never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevvy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
