Diego Leoni is used to getting what he wants. He’s one of the best capos the outfit has to offer. Anyone who betrays the outfit, he kills. His first wife knows about that.
Belle Johnson is alone in the city, trying to prove her independence. Blinded in an accident as a child, she can’t rely on anyone. Now, abandoned in a nightclub by her friends, she has to call for help. And Diego answers, being the sweet, kind man, who helps her home.
Diego knows he can’t keep Belle forever. She doesn’t know who he really is, and there’s no way to tell her that the person she’s having sex with is also part of the mafia. Violence is in his blood, and yet, when he’s with Belle, the darkness fades away, leaving just the two of them.
The only problem is, he’s already engaged to another woman, one whom he doesn’t want. But he can’t let Belle go. The only solution is to get Belle pregnant and keep her in his world—without ever letting her know exactly who he is.
But secrets don’t stay hidden forever…

His Secret Sin... When I heard Sam Crescent was going to try putting out more full-length novels I had to go ahead and give this one a try. For the most part this was a good story. However, the hang-ups for me on this book are completely personal, but at the same time seem to be a constant "thing" I've noticed this author puts in many of her books. First, we have the naive virgin heroine. What I really hated about Belle was she knowingly was friends with a woman who she knew was taking money from her father to watch her, yet she some how seemed surprised when Melanie finally showed her true colors about being her "babysitter". Second, we have the manwhore alpha male. I have no problems with a man who sleeps around in the past. What I'm not too keen on is reading about this within the first chapter of the book. What I also didn't like was Diego's problem with lying to Belle. After she confronts him about there possibly being another woman he plainly lies to her about there being no other woman and promises he would never lie to her, yet he just completely lied to her! I think in regards to Belle's father, I honestly couldn't understand him. He's so protective of his daughter yet he was paying a woman, who I'm going to assume he never met or else he would've seen the track marks from her drug habit, to watch his daughter. Then when he comes to visit Belle he all along knew who Diego was and kept threatening to tell her who he was, but still never told her. He had ample opportunity to and never did.
