The moment I kissed my wife, I knew I was in trouble.
A stoic, dangerous man with ties to the Mafia has no business keeping a gorgeous ray of sunshine like her, but she was scared and I was desperate.
On the run, we land at a secluded ranch designed to protect federal witnesses. As long as everyone believes we’re married, she won’t have to testify against me for killing the man who put his hands on her.
But the longer we pretend, the lines between fact and fiction begin to blur. My eyes linger a second too long. My hands soften on her skin. My kiss, a little too demanding.
Before I can help it, our pretending extends behind closed doors and our relationship begins to feel very, very real.
My plan is to hide out until I know she’s safe.
Set her up for life and disappear, but I’m drawn to the way she breathes life into me without even trying. A better man would walk away.
But I never claimed to be a better man.
Hi there! I’m Lena.
I write hot-as-sin small town romance novels. My love of romance started with my grandmother’s Harlequin paperbacks and now I write stories full of heart, heat, and plenty of strong Alphas with marshmallow insides-I like my coffee hot and my heroes hotter!
I’m a midwest gal and live with my husband, three children, and two derpy Australian Cattle Dogs. When I’m not writing or devouring new novels, you can find me hiking, camping, fishing, and sipping a spicy margarita!
