The Moretti Series Book 2
Ashton Sinclair is the quintessential gentleman villain – well-mannered, outrageously wealthy and successor to a long line of spectacularly ruthless men. He is feared by even the most notorious criminals of the NYC underworld. They say he has no heart, that he will kill with that soft, impersonal smile that rarely leaves his face. They say he lost his soul when his wife was murdered, when there was a turf war and he won his turf but lost the love of his life. They say he went quietly insane and that the composed charm of the outer man hides the monster inside.
Giovanna Moretti has a big heart and a restless spirit. She longs to take on the world and experience everything before she returns to the bosom of her family in California. Following her siblings to New York City, she joins a local theater, where she meets Ashton Sinclair, the businessman who saved the life of her beloved sister, Autumn and her husband, Magnus. At first Giovanna is drawn to him in gratitude, then to his quiet charisma, but she soon discovers the inner pain and turmoil of this beautiful man and is pierced by an intense love. Reaching his darkness will take all she has and more and may leave her shattered in the process.
