description
The first book in my new Vegas Morelli trilogy is LIVE on Amazon, and available to Kindle Unlimited subscribers! It is a full-length book, but it is not a standalone; all three Vegas books revolve around the same characters.
“You like men who play by their own rules; nothing wrong with that. You’ve certainly come to the right place, kitten.”

“It seemed I was torn; I wanted my goodbye, and I didn't. I wanted him to make me stay, and I wanted to go.”
Sam Mariano, Because of You

“You’re correct that I’ve never experienced poverty, but you’ve never experienced a man you’ve grown up with for 20 years, more brother than friend, try to assassinate you because another man wanted what was yours. You’ve never had your older sister gouge you in the leg with a throwing star and try to end your life. You’ve never had to live every day knowing the only thing between you and a body bag is a good bodyguard and the people who would kill you being too afraid of what you’d do if they failed.”
Sam Mariano, Accidental Witness

“That would be immensely disappointing. I imagine opening the door, expecting Francesca’s gorgeous face, and instead seeing the dead-eyed, scarred visage of Adrian Palmetto, there to rip me a new asshole.”
Sam Mariano, Family Ties

“Freedom’s an illusion. We all live in prisons of our own making.”
Skye Warren, Hear Me

“The only difference between reality and fiction is that fiction needs to be credible.”
Mark Twain

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“My dream wasn’t to be a princess in a castle. I wanted to be Persephone, claimed by the god of the underworld.”
Skye Warren, Don't Let Go

“I have never understood how people can blithely disregard the damage they do by following their hearts. Who was it said that following your heart is a good thing? It is pure egotism, a selfishness to conquer all.”
Paula Hawkins, The Girl on the Train

Hmm, that is very sad and terrible. And surprising. That will have to be remedied.
Well, thank you anyway! :)
