The Don’s brother. The girl who swore off all mafia ties. Sophie steered clear of the mafia after her father’s involvement ended with his murder. Fifteen years later, Joey La Torre, the Don’s brother himself, shows up unannounced at her massage studio and wheedles his way into a date. She has no interest in aggressive, macho men like Joey, or so she tries to tell herself, but her body just doesn’t get the message. When Joey takes her in hand with a firm bare-bottomed spanking, she ought to be furious, instead, she’s aroused. As she explores her physical desires to be dominated, she tries to keep Joey at arm’s length emotionally. Joey knows he wants Sophie for keeps from the moment he walks into her life. She is hot, classy and full of fire, even though submission turns her on. But his involvement in the mafia is a hard limit for her, bringing to conflict his own dedication to the Family, the code of silence and his relationship with his older brother. Can he reconcile his duty to the organization and his growing need for Sophie to remain in his life permanently?
“Why do you want to marry Joey?” the woman demanded in her thick accent.
I don’t. Not that it’s anyone’s business.
She ground her teeth. No suitable response came to her lips.
“I know you can make him happy, I’m not worried about that,” the older woman said.
“But will you be happy? With Cosa Nostra?” Joey’s mother made a grand gesture of her hand around the room. “Because your mother never was and it caused a lot of misery for your father. Is that what you want for Joey? Always having trouble with the other men over his wife?”
Her face grew hot as different emotions washed through her. Fury with the woman for talking about her parents, and sharp pain. Pain that this very thing ended her father’s life, took him from them forever. And there was grief and then fear. Fear for Joey.
She would not curse Joey to the life her father had led. She cared about him too much.
“No,” she whispered and whirled around, searching for her purse to escape.
She stumbled out of the house, barely capable of making her goodbyes. Her stomach was in knots and she started crying the moment her car hit the road, tears blurring her vision so much she wished she had wipers for them.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains spanking, anal sex and hot scenes that may keep you up late reading.
Temptation is too sweet when the don’s daughter offers her full submission, but when her father finds out, he’ll probably wind up swimming with the fishes. Giving control of her body to Carlo Romano, underboss to her father, was dangerous. More dangerous than her hair-brained idea to take off her clothes at a strip club as a form of sex therapy. But the temptation outweighed the risk. Carlo made her feel sexy, alive and appealing, feelings she’d scarcely known after two years with her cheating and demoralizing ex-boyfriend. Carlo couldn’t believe Summer — the don’s daughter — was dancing half-naked on the stage of a strip club. Nor could he believe she suggested he’d be the one to take a belt to her ass and set her straight. But he’d had a thing for Summer since the day he moved in with her family, fresh off a plane from Sicily. He couldn’t walk away from the opportunity to get up-close and intimate, and show her his dominant side. Still, Summer may not be ready for a new relationship, and even if she is, there was the not-so-small matter of what her parents would say — her father would probably want to kill Carlo if he found out he’d seen her naked...
