She didn’t want to be my wife, but she never had a choice.
The moment my father took his last breath, I knew what would be expected of me.
I’d trained my entire life for the role.
To become The Boss. The head of the Beretta Family.
But I hadn’t known there were conditions.
Three rules to obey.
Three rules standing in the way of becoming King of the underground.
The first two were easy, but it was the third rule that was most problematic.
I had to find someone to marry.
A good Italian woman who wouldn’t distract me. Someone who knew their place. Someone who wouldn’t expect anything of me.
So when Aida turned up—quiet and respectful—I knew she was perfect for the role, whether she wanted it or not.
Vows were promised; lines drawn. And I became the Mafia Boss I’d always known I would be.
Everything was going to plan.
Until I saw her smile at another man.
Until I saw her lay her hand on his chest.
She’d made a mistake.
But maybe I’d underestimated her.
I thought I was getting sweet and innocent. I hadn’t bargained on feisty and opinionated.
We’d been forced into something neither of us wanted.
I may have needed to get married, but that didn’t mean I wanted a wife.
Or did I?
Lorenzo Beretta is an all new standalone in the Unseen Underground series. A forbidden, unputdownable, arranged marriage, mafia romance that will have you turning the pages non-stop.
Witness what happens when you become an outlaw with your in-laws.
When you marry into a family, you’re meant to love them like your own.
But what happens when that love turns into something more?
What do you do when you can’t hold it back any longer?
Innocent touches become sinful.
Quick glances turn into uncontrollable stares.
Self-control snaps and you’re plunged into a forbidden world.
You can’t stop, no matter what you do.
If forbidden love is so wrong, then why does it feel so right?
Solace and suffering.
Opposites attract like magnets. They went hand in hand; just like we did.
The pain of the past encompassed my soul. It was on a path to destroy me—that was if I didn’t do it myself first.
I was drowning in the depths of my sorrow, trying to push through each day to get to the next. And then he turned up.
There was a time when he was the only beam of light within the darkness.
But he snatched that away when he left and forgot all about me.
Only now he was back, and standing at the front of my World History class.
Cade Easton was no longer the charming sixteen year old who never failed to put a smile on my face. Instead, he was my new teacher.
They said there was nothing quite like your first love. That all consuming feeling—the infatuation.
It should have mattered that I was his student, but it didn’t. And neither did the eight year age gap.
Age was just a number.
Time which would pass us both by.
Rules were broken.
And there was nothing that could stop us.
Until my past resurfaced and threatened to demolish everything we’d built. With Cade by my side, I was sure I’d conquer everything.
I just hoped he stayed there.
A thousand steps separated us, but nothing could keep us apart.
Or could it?

And yet they did.
As an undercover DEA agent, I always thought things through. I didn’t take chances, because I knew one misstep could have disastrous consequences.
Until I met her.
The little sister of my next target.
Lola was a feisty young woman trying to claw her way out of a bad neighborhood.
She was forbidden in every sense of the word, and not just because of the sixteen year age gap.
We were taught to expect the unexpected, but nothing could have prepared me for what was about to happen.
I fell hard.
I fell fast.
I freefalled heart first.
But there was a secret I was keeping, and if revealed, it’d destroy the lives of those I’d vowed to protect.
One wrong move and everything could erupt in our faces.
All that remained was one question...
Was she worth it?
Free Fall is book one in the Fallen Duet. A two-part, angst-fuelled, gripping tale of forbidden love, complete with a jaw-dropping twist you’ll never see coming.
I’d crossed lines I shouldn’t have.
And I didn’t care one bit.
Coming back to my hometown to teach wasn’t meant to be like this. Falling head over heels for the forbidden girl shouldn’t have been on the cards.
But fate had other ideas.
Aria was the one shining star in an otherwise dark night. She called to me like nothing else ever had, and I was hopeless to stop it.
Until we got caught.
The game was over; our secret destroyed. And there was only one thing I could do about it.
Lies came easy when I was shielding the people I loved most. Destroying myself in the process didn’t matter as long as she was safe.
But now the lines had been redrawn. Boundaries marked permanently. I’d always protect Aria—even if it was from herself.
Defying fate was simple, but I was never one to take the easy way out.
That was all it would take to walk the rocky path of obeying fate.

Between the murky waters, I’d found salvation. And it was all because of him—the broody alpha who appeared at the time I needed him most.
He promised me things, and showed me the life I could have.
But all it took was one moment to destroy everything.
Nothing else mattered.
No one else mattered.
It was him and me against the world.
Until it wasn’t.
I hadn’t known just how forbidden our love was.
I hadn’t known I’d been tutoring his son.
I hadn’t known about the family he had hidden away.
I hadn’t known he was cheating—with me.
I wish I could say I wanted to take it all back, but it’d be a lie.
A blatant lie.
He was my biggest downfall, but I’d never regret it.
Choosing him was never an option, the question was whether he’d risk it all.
Down Fall is book two in the Fallen Duet. The final instalment in the two-part, drama-filled, heart-felt, epic love story.
An intentionally false statement.
Some days I didn't know where the lies finished and the truth began.
It happened with one innocent lie, and before I knew it I'd weaved a whole web.
Nobody likes a liar.
But what if you didn’t have a choice?
What if you had to lie to protect yourself and your child?
If the lies were revealed, I’d be a shell of my former self, fractured into a thousand tiny pieces.
I just hoped they could be put back together.
Something that is kept it meant to be kept unknown or unseen by others.
Secrets aren’t meant to be uncovered, shining light onto your past sins. Keeping them was hard, especially from the one person you never wanted to find out.
But what do you do when that secret reveals itself, bringing with it painful memories?
Would you reveal it? Or keep it as long as you could?
I didn’t think it could get worse, but it was nothing compared to what was coming.
A storm was brewing, about to destroy everything I had kept locked away.
Only one question remained: would it bring us closer together, or tear us apart for good?
One… Two… Three…
I’m a prisoner in my own mind.
Four… Five… Six…
The painful memories hold me captive.
Seven… Eight… Nine…
He turned me into this, leaving my body riddled with scars.
Ten… Eleven… Twelve…
I don’t want to be this person anymore.
Thirteen… Fourteen… Fifteen…
I want to be free.
Sixteen… Seventeen… Eighteen…
But I’m afraid that I’ll never be.
Nineteen… Twenty…. Twenty-One…
I’ll never be good enough.
Twenty-Two… Twenty-Three… Twenty-Four…
Never be normal.
Twenty-Five… Twenty-Six… Twenty-Seven…
There’s only one good memory scattered with all the painful ones.
Twenty-Eight… Twenty-Nine… Thirty…
My savior… My hero… Corey.
THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US
The fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance or activity.
I’m a strong woman. Or at least, I think I am. I used to be so sure about that.
Escaping my suffocating childhood home with only a couple hundred bucks brought me here; to the man who’s eyes were full of sadness and heartbreak.
How can one person turn your world upside down and your heart inside out?
I understood the arrangement: only to warm his bed at night.
But then I wanted more, which was impossible considering I was competing with someone who didn’t exist.
There was a time when I thought I could pull him out of his darkness, but now I know it’s unattainable since I slid there along with him courtesy of the pretty little pills.
Relief and calm.
That’s what they gave me, but they also destroyed everything I worked so hard to become.
Now? Now it’s just me and them.

Ninety-nine percent of the time you can right your wrongs.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple apology.
But what about that one percent?

The wrong that will haunt you.
The wrong that seemingly defines the very core of you.
I witnessed it in her eyes. I let it fester for years. I allowed myself to think I was different from them.
I was wrong.
I tried to resist.
I tried to be different.
But blood was thicker than water.
I didn’t just want her. I needed her.
I needed to own every single inch of her.
She crooked her finger, beckoning me, and I drifted to her like helpless sails in the wind.
A flicker inside me roared to life.
She’d woken the beast.
The flames burned bright, promising destruction to all those who obstructed our path.
Ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.
Fractured into a thousand tiny pieces.
I’d promised to make it all better.
To heal the blows she’d been dealt.
But she wasn’t the only one living in a nightmare.
I’d tried to forget about my past as a marine, but it echoed in the edges of my mind, chipping away at my sanity.
The violent memories haunted me.
But now so did she.
I’d let my anger take over.
I thought I’d gone too far and destroyed everything.
But she was still there.
Waiting for me.
Waiting for us.
Our pain threatened to eradicate everything around us.
A roaring flame no one could extinguish.
But it was nothing compared to the fire in our souls.
The deepest love always burned the hottest.
And ours was set to ignite an inferno.

Each moment I struggled to keep everything on lockdown.
And yet all it took was the man with the enticing eyes to draw me out.
He thought he knew my secrets, but he had no idea the pain I felt.
The torture I suffered.
The agony I held deep down inside where no one else could see.
Dancing had been my only savior.
But now he was too.
The marine who knew the deepest part of my soul.
The tattoo artist who turned my black and gray world into full color.
The man fourteen years older than me.

Confession One: I was a self-confessed chatterbox.
Words were my best friend.They loved me almost as much as I loved my pajamas and unwashed hair.
Confession Two: I hated outside people.
I was happiest sitting on my sofa, my favorite show in the background, and my laptop open while I worked.
Being my own boss was freaking awesome.
So why the heck had I accepted this new teaching job on campus?
Going back to the sunny state was the last thing I wanted to do.
It was only meant to be for one day—one talk.
But life had a funny way at throwing you for a loop.
Confession Three: I was the best secret keeper.
It was ironic considering I never stopped talking. But I’d do anything for my best friend.
