The Sting of Love (Gangsters and Dolls Book 5)


The moment she walked into my club, I knew I had to have her.

Her beauty captured me, her body enticed me.

Everything about her was tempting.

So tempting I had to have more than one night with her.

But our paths should never have crossed.


I can paint the picture however I want but the truth is I’m a dangerous man.

A gangster.

I work for a powerful man who rules the underworld with a ruthless hand.

Assigned to look after the empire in Italy, my focus should never have been on her.

A woman I couldn’t have.


I broke my rules by getting involved.

Then I slipped up.

My enemies saw her as my weakness.

A dagger they could stab through my already wounded heart.

The lamb to the slaughter they want to kill to teach me a lesson.

When they try, I’m forced to kidnap her to keep her safe.

I lock her away in my house on the island where no one can find her.
It’s too dangerous for her to be with me, but more dangerous to be without me.

War is brewing on my hands.

She’s right to call me a monster.

I am.

But I can’t allow her to die for being with me.
