We take on the jobs that no one wants. This time we’re stealing from the richest man in the world.
The heist is simple.
Spending the next two weeks with a man whose held my heart in the palm of his hands—that’s complicated.
Asher is the brains behind our operations. He’s the steady one, the planner, always thinking two moves ahead.
I’m the distraction, the pretty face, the seductress.
When we’re not playing our roles we’re just two people hopelessly confused. Asher wants steadiness, I want freedom. Like oil and water, we’ll never fully mix but for now, we can pretend.
I’m not afraid of monsters. I’m afraid of a man named Ruthless.
Desperation can make you blind to danger and I’m desperate to get out of Detroit. I need money, a lot of it, and in a place like this there’s only one person you go to for that; Ruthless.
He runs Detroit, keeping it on the list of the most dangerous cities in the country. He’s my escape plan, and soon he’ll be my pair of Golden Handcuffs.
Golden Handcuffs: A situation that is undesirable, unenjoyable, or unfulfilling but that provides enough financial security as to make one unable to leave.
Loving The Bratva
How did I fall in love with a man who was sent to kill me?
The last thing I expected when I walked into my shift was to be ambushed by a man that looks like he’s killed more people than I want to know about. He has stubbles across his square jawline. His eyes are dark, cold and empty. Like there’s no more softness left in him. Pure evil stares back at me. I’ve seen that sort of emptiness before. He has one demand of me; never come back. I’ve never been good at doing what I’m told. So here I am, poking a monster.
Hating The Bratva
Betray might be the cruelest form of punishment. Especially when one wants to control and the other wants freedom.
Born into the Russian mafia and daughter of a corrupt Senator, I knew I wouldn’t get to choose my husband. Everyone knows I’m going to marry Alek. He’s next in line to be Pakhan and he needs a wife.
His entire life is wrapped around danger. The men in the Boston brotherhood are always in danger. It may not be my choice, but Alek is the best I can ask for.
He’s eleven years older than me, but he’s the only man in the Bratva that I can tolerate. At least with him, I know what I’m getting into.
So when my father announces I’ll be marrying someone else, the rug is pulled from under both our feet.
Escaping The Bratva
After five years in prison, I’m finally free.
I’ve served my time.
Now it’s time for me to get my girl back.
It turns out that getting Sasha to believe I’m truly done with that life is harder than I thought. When my past comes back to haunt me, I must make a choice that will change both of our lives.
Twelve years ago V broke my heart, but I never let that stop me.
I’ve built a billion-dollar company and made a name for myself.
I’m not letting him drag me back into his dangerous world.
I have too much to lose.
King of The Bronx
He belongs to the most notorious criminal organization in North America.
I watched him kill a man without blinking.
I’ve let him into my heart, and now I’m about to be his next target.
I need thirty-thousand dollars to save the only family I have, and the only way I know how to get it is by stealing from Enzo Genovese.
I married a monster.
Years ago my husband was the perfect man, until I was faced with his abusive side. I’ve made mistakes in my life but getting caught in the middle of an affair has to be in the top ten. I thought my husband would kill me but Maverick saved me. He seemed like my knight in shining armor. However, Maverick comes with his own set of baggage.
How will this tangled web of destruction and lust unravel? Dirty Empire will thrill, anger, push and prod you to the edges of your imagination!
“What do you want? Come out here to spill more Whiskey on me with your gang?” she snapped, losing her patience. “Where did you guys even come from. This isn’t a motorcycle bar ya know. I have regular customers who wouldn’t appreciate your obnoxious friends.”
“They’re my brother and you mean the old pervert and the divorced lady who were in here? Those are your regulars?”
The last thing Cam needs right now is the town’s motorcycle club taking over her bar.
The failing bar that her father left her to deal with along with a loan from a dangerous man named Venom.
On top of that, she’s trying to get through her classes without failing.
She doesn’t have time for the blue-eyed monster of a man that can’t keep his eyes off her.
But damn he would be a good distraction.
Two men each vowed to keep me safe in a world I want no part of.
Giovanni is the kind of man they warn young women about; detached, emotionless, and dangerous, but for some reason, when my life is threatened, he is the one I run to. A man I know who can keep me safe. Despite all his flaws, there’s something about our power struggle that keeps me wanting more.
Wes is everything I’ve ever wanted in a man; kind, gentle, and handsome. His one flaw? His affiliation with Cosa Nostra. He made a promise to them like every other Made Man. He’ll serve as a soldier until the day he either dies or is locked away in a prison cell.
I don’t have to choose between them, but I have to decide if I can be in their dangerous world with them.

When she runs into a handsome man in her nightclub she doesn’t ask any questions because she couldn’t care less.Cassandra is a boss but so is Andre and he’s about to show her that he can be just as ruthless as her.
A leather jacket and a car that cost more than any high school student should be able to afford. That should have been the first sign that Sabrina should stay far away from Jayce.
Falcon Haven, the town she remembers well as a child, has stayed the same but the boy next door has become the infamous town bad boy. There was something dangerous about him and part of her wanted to figure out what it was. Being the youngest soldier in the Mafia comes with its own set of challenges. The last thing Jayce needs is to get involved with the girl next door. The girl who he’d spent most of his childhood with… but that was a long time ago.
