Meet the Sexiest Men

in Manhattan

A Hot Biker

A Sexy Con Woman and a Plan to Take Down a Vicious Gangster.

What Could Go Wrong?

Jonny and Cheryl's story is a fast-paced trek from the glitter of New York to the tropical sun of South Beach as they surrender to the growing passion that could wreck them.

Eddie is desperate to put his past behind him until saving Paige, a woman way out of his league threatens to throw him back to the life that nearly destroyed him.

Can Joker and Daisy trust each other to work together on one last scam that pits his vicious club president against a murderous drug lord? Or will the price of freedom get lost in the depth of their deception? Their world twists and turns until neither one is sure who’s in control as they teeter on the edge of what they need and what they want.

Exclusive Excerpt


“I’d never do anything to hurt you.” Eddie ran his hand through his hair. “You know that, right?”

Right now Paige didn’t know anything. Only that she was in a semi-dark room measuring eight feet square with a man who set her on fire and watched her burn. His mouth, his tongue, the heat of him possessed her until she lost all reason.


Eddie’s hand caressed the nape of her neck, and her nipples tightened. “You can’t deny what we feel.”

Paige wished she didn’t feel anything. She wished he didn’t affect her like a tidal wave of emotions flooding her heart. She wanted to trust him, wanted to grab onto those muscular, tatted arms and never let go, but she averted her eyes. How could she trust him again with so much at stake?


Jonny Vallone, the dark, brooding owner of Manhattan nightclub, Beyond Paradise doesn't need anymore complication in his life. Then savvy con artist Cheryl Benson barges into his office and spits out a confession that would make most men run for cover.

Jonny can't resist Cheryl's pleading green eyes as their wild ride whisks them from the glitz of Manhattan to the sultry beaches of Miami in a desperate attempt to break free of their shady pasts while trying to tame the fiery passion around them.


Frightening as fuck, but Joker liked everything Daisy did, in and out of bed. A week ago he hadn’t even known she existed, but now she filled every space in his brain: the way she teased him, the way she made him feel like the king of the goddamn universe. Her soft voice captivated him. Shit, he could listen to her read the phone book.
