The Good Daughter: A Mafia Story
(Vista Security series)

Most good daughters would say they owe their fathers everything. Marisa Peruzzo, Mafia princess, would. She owed him for killing her fiancé. She owed him for destroying her mother. She owed him for chaining her to the 'family business'. And she owed him for taking away her lifelong friend. Payback's a bitch.

Trust No One (Vista Security series)

Drafted into the nebulous underworld of a secret agent right out of college, MJ Thornberg survived betrayal and attempted murder at the hands of her trusted partner. Instead of returning to the deadly realm of espionage, she chose to retire to a small Texas town and work as a mechanic while raising her soon-to-be-adopted baby daughter. Ben Walker is a man with his own secrets. An agent with MJ's former employer, Vista Security, Ben is clawing his way out of a downward spiral from a job gone wrong when Vista sends him after MJ, with orders to use the threat of halting her baby's adoption to ensure her cooperation. Furious and trusting no one, MJ intends on working the job solo until a sniper's bullet alters her plans. With no choice but to work with Ben, MJ must confront ghosts from her past, discover truths of her present, and trust that the future she deserves is in her hands to create.

Pirate's Proposal (Tales of the Scrimshaw Doll)

After she chases him down, her world is suddenly turned upside down. Charles can't be who he says he is, can he? And what is the proposal he has to offer to keep his hide in tact? Can a girl trust a known charmer and full blown scallywag with her safety as well as that of her crew, not to mention her heart? Enter in a grand scheme and two fiercely loyal crews, and let the adventure begin.
