Being attracted to her isn’t wrong…but acting on it would be.
As the patriarch of the powerful and wealthy Cavalieri family, my choices come with consequences for everyone around me. The roots of my ancestral, billionaire-dollar winery stretch deep into the rich Italian soil, as does our legacy of ruthlessness and scandal.
It isn’t the fact she is half my age that makes her off-limits. Nothing is off-limits for me. A wounded bird caught in a trap not of her own making, she poses no risk to me. My obsessive desire to possess her is the real problem—for both of us.
Now that I’ve seen her and tasted her lips, I can’t let her go. Whether she likes it or not, she needs my protection. I’m doing this for her own good, yet she fights me at every turn. Refusing the luxury I offer, desperately trying to escape my grasp. I need to teach her to obey before the dark rumors of my past reach her. Ruin her.
She cannot find out what I’ve done—not before I make her mine.
Lose yourself in the steamy, enemies-to-lovers drama of the Cavalieri men beginning with book one, Scandals of the Father.
