Forbidden love is the strongest of all...
The only daughter of a notorious criminal, Giuliana Capaldi is no stranger to secrets and lies. When her father is killed, Jules becomes a ward of her cruel and abusive Uncle Massimo. Driven by greed and the desire for power, Massimo arranges her marriage to his business associate—a man whose previous three wives mysteriously disappeared. Just days before her wedding is supposed to take place, Jules flees.
All Eric Donahue wanted was peace and quiet in his sleepy little town. After the mission three years ago that nearly ended his life, he left Chicago in search of seclusion and solitude. When he finds the green-eyed beauty sleeping in her car on the side of the road, he offers her a safe haven. Despite the inexplicable connection between them, Eric vows to stay away—far, far away. Jules is too young, too innocent for a man like him; everything about her is wrong… but so very right.
In close quarters, a bond is forged and neither can resist the pull of desire sparking between them. But when the past catches up, they must hope that their love is strong enough to save them both…
