Burned (Dark Desires #3) by Amy Starling – Free eBooks Download
Bad-boy cop Noel swore he’d never lay a finger on Jean, his best friend’s little sister, no matter how much he wants to. Growing up together in the New Bordeaux orphanage made them a family. How could he take her as a lover?
Abandoned by her parents, exiled from her teaching career, and the owner of a chronically empty bank account, Jean’s had it rough all her life. Noel has always been there with good advice and a shoulder to cry on. She knows a romance with him would never work – but lately, her heart races just a bit faster when he wraps her in his embrace…
Things between them change when her brother, Isaac, schemes to rob millions from the seediest casino on Whiskey Street. Too bad for him the casino’s run by the mafia, and they’ll spill blood to settle the score.
Noel will do anything to shield Jean from the criminal underworld – even become a mobster himself. The Ciarello family promises protection for those who pledge loyalty against their enemies. Lucky for Noel, he’s good with a gun.
With danger nipping at their heels, Jean seeks sanctuary in his arms and finds comfort in his kiss. She can’t hold back her feelings any longer, but that could be her biggest mistake yet.
Because once the mafia has its claws in a man, there is no turning back.
