Publication Date: August 5, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, MMF



The son of a prominent Cosa Nostra Don, Corrado Guzzi’s life should have been all mapped out. He would be what every other Guzzi man was, too—made, mafia. It’s their way. But when given another choice, the chance to be something more, he takes it. Even if it comes with strings.

It’s there that he might find where he belongs, and Alessio Sorrento. The man who could change his whole life.

This love thing? It should have been easy, but they made it hard. Nothing about a relationship like theirs is simple. Dictated by rules, weighed down with things left unsaid, and already hanging by a frayed thread.

This is what love looks like before, and after.
Before she came along.
And after she was there.

It takes one woman to change everything.

Ginevra Calabrese wasn’t ready for this—for them.

So, what happens now?


NOTE: Corrado (book one) and Alessio (book two) are a duet within The Guzzi Legacy series, and should be read in order. All other titles in the series are standalone. This is NOT a love triangle.



Opening to her last page, she always remembered the page number and didn’t need to dog-ear to find her place, she became lost in words again. Time slipped by when she had a book in her hands, and nothing else to do.

She flipped to a new page—the start of a new poem—when a familiar voice came from behind her, almost making her drop the book.


“What are you doing in here? Are you supposed to be alone where you might … oh, I don’t know, run?”


He had a darker quality to his voice than Corrado’s. She noticed that about him first. Both spoke with deep tenors that made her pay attention, but something was different about Alessio’s.

Like he was always holding back.

Never giving everything.

Refusing to let the man behind her see he had scared her, Ginevra continued reading the poem as she replied, “Why would I run?”

“I’m not sure if you want to be here.”

Ginevra almost laughed. “I didn’t at first; I wanted to be with my sisters, but I also don’t get a choice, so here I am.”

“That doesn’t mean you want to be here, though.”

“Right now, I do.”

He made a noise behind her—gruff, and curious. She didn’t understand what to make of that, or why he came here again, although it was his home along with Corrado, so she focused on things that made sense.

Like the book of poems in her hand.

“Did you trick him again to come here alone?”

Alessio chuckled. “And if I did?”

“He won’t like that.”

“He doesn’t seem to give a shit about what I like lately, either. Fair is fair, yeah?”



Ginevra wouldn’t argue that point.
