She is the daughter of his enemy...and the keeper of his heart. Richard de Claiborne, the dark earl of Dunsmore, serves King Edward Plantagenet well. Sworn to obey his king's every order, he nevertheless chafes at the command he wed the daughter of his enemy--a man who slew his father in cold blood. But King Edward wants peace in his lands, and he will stop at nothing to get it. If he has to order his most powerful Marcher lord to marry a Welsh princess, he considers it a small price to pay. Princess Gwenllian is a political pawn. When she's forced to marry the evil Black Hawk de Claiborne, she quakes at his fierceness and brutality. But she does her duty to her father and her people, knowing she will never surrender to her enemy. In the halls of Black Hawk's great keep, Gwen glimpses a man who can be tender and passionate-and who teaches her about breathtaking sensuality and a desire so great it threatens every vow she ever made to keep her heart locked tight. As war once more looms between Wales and England, Gwen realizes a terrible truth: she's in love with the enemy. When long-buried secrets threaten to destroy her fragile happiness, she must make a terrible choice-or watch the man she loves sacrifice his life to save hers...

Sofia I knew little of Raphael Amado’s history with my family, but when he turned up on our doorstep demanding restitution, my grandfather quickly conceded. That restitution? Me. Six months later, on my eighteenth birthday, Raphael came for me. He stole me from my home, taking me to his Tuscan estate, where from the crumbling chapel to the burnt-down vineyard, to the cellar that haunted him, the past stalked him like a shadow. It waited for him, hid behind corners for him and trapped him at every turn. As much as Raphael’s cruelty terrified me, his darkness seduced me. But in the end, it was his tenderness that devastated me. Raphael Sofia came to me like an offering. Like a virgin to be sacrificed at the altar. But truth was, her grandfather betrayed her. I guess we had that in common. He’d screwed me too. I knew hate. I'd vowed vengeance. This was never supposed to be about anything else. But in the end, her innocence broke me. The very thing I would destroy, destroyed me. Author's Note: DISHONORABLE is a romantic suspense novel. It is a STANDALONE read. It's the first in the series of The Amado Brothers. Fair warning: Raphael Amado is one twisted, dirty Alpha male. DISGRACED, Raphael's twin brother's story, and UNHINGED, Zach's story, are now available for sale.

Eva Webb didn’t know what she’d find the night she secretly followed her fiancé. She had feared he was meeting another woman. But it was so much worse than that. “The man I loved betrayed me, stealing me in the night, packing me on that truck like an animal to be sold to the highest bidder.” But when the vehicle is ambushed, she is delivered into the hands of her fiancé’s worst enemies: vigilante brothers who would stop at nothing to bring him down. For Gabriel and Syn Rivera, hijacking the truck and stealing its cargo was another job, another way of taking back what was stolen from them. Discovering Eva on board was an unexpected bonus. They now held in their grasp the one thing that could take down an entire organization, making her a pawn in a deadly game — a game in which she would need their protection to survive. But that protection would come at a price: the brothers, who have always shared their women, would require her submission. Eva would soon learn, though, that in a world where criminals often wear two faces, lust can easily be confused for love — and putting your trust in the wrong people can be a deadly mistake. Publisher’s Warning: Intended for mature readers. Over 18 only. This romantic suspense includes MFM Ménage (no sexual contact between the men), graphic sexuality and elements of BDSM. If such content might offend you, please don’t buy this book.
