about this book: A brand new romance suspense series with gripping tension, unpredictable twists and turns, and moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Adeline Heed is thrown into a world she never knew existed and decided whether to run from the man who could protect her, or to trust him to keep her safe when a hitman marks her.

Gabriel Heed, the second in charge of a dangerous drug cartel and is only after one thing--power, but when he kidnaps Addy, he never knew what he was getting himself into. Can he tame this unruly girl or will be his downfall?


"Do you always have to do that?"

He smiled, honestly taken back, "Do what?"

"Watch me," I said, "You're always, I don't know, watching me. It's unnerving."

I would have thought he'd break eye contact with me after I said something, but he didn't. If anything, his stare only seemed to intensify.

He smirked, "I'm just wondering if I need to take away the butter knife too." There was no chuckle; he was serious. Did he think I was going to jump across the table and attack him with a butter knife? Well, to be honest, it had crossed my mind. But there was no way I could gain the element of surprise with him sitting across from me, even if I had a blunt piece of polished silver in my hand.

"Are you worried?" I asked, looking down at the knife next to my plate. I wasn't going to do anything, but it was about time I make him squirm in his seat. I had been playing his game for too long. Now it was my turn.

When I brought my eyes back up to him, he was smirking, a devilish curl at the corner of his mouth.

"No," he said calmly. "You don't have what it takes to be a killer. I'm safe tonight."

I didn't have what It took to be a killer?

What did that mean? I wasn't going to disagree with him; I'm not sure I had it in me either, but how did he know what a killer looked like? Was he one? The question I had been asking myself for days now resurfaced again.

He chuckled from across the table when he recognized the thoughts swimming around in my head, making the connections.

What if he was a killer?

I'll just check that box right next to cartel kingpin, kidnapper, cocaine salesman, control freak, and the 'I have sexy hair' box. It didn't change anything. I knew he was dangerous and part of me had suspected that he was capable of killing or had already. That didn't change the way I saw him. He was still a monster.
