Sweeter Than This
Revenge can be sweet…and desire deadly!
Revenge can be sweet and desire deadly—or so Officer Elle Taylor finds out upon learning that her father is the late Chicago mobster Montgomery ‘Black’ Kearns. When an unknown enemy targets Elle’s mother, she leans on her ex-lover and Kearns’ enforcer, Durant Kane, for help.
Durant Kane is no stranger to trouble, especially the kind that comes with a gun trained on his face and an angry woman attached. But Elle’s something different, something unexpected and sweeter. He never could have imagined coming to feel so deeply about her, even if his own disastrous path in relationships hadn’t left him so wary. But he’ll have to take the risk if he doesn’t want to lose the woman he’s come to realize he can’t even think of living without.
With her best friend murdered, the man believed to be partly responsible under the nose of her gun and a stranger looming in the shadows out for blood, Officer Elle Taylor is running out of time and people to trust. Will Elle risk crossing the forbidden line between duty and love once and for all, before a murderer strikes, leaving her life in flames?
