“The Tender Touch of Night” is a stand-alone novel in the Belle House series.
Maude Daly, better known as ‘Ginger’ among the clients of the Belle House, is used to fine clothes and luxurious lifestyle. But what a woman wouldn’t do for love! On a mission to rescue her lover from a gambling debt, young beautiful Ginger ventures into the worst slums of Victorian London. A string of unfortunate events, and she finds herself in the den of a notorious street gang and the king of the underworld himself—Frank Handley.
Frank ‘Lucky’ Handley grew up on the streets. An orphan, a ruthless fighter, a criminal, and an unsung hero of the slums. To him, the slums are his Holy Grail, money is a commodity, and so are women. So the day Ginger falls into his arms, he decides to use her connections with her rich clients to his advantage. And, well, he wouldn’t be Frank Handley if he didn’t toy with such an elegant creature from the luxury brothel on Piccadilly.
So begins the game of cat and mouse.
But Ginger’s games are gentle and take Lucky by surprise, setting his thoughts on fire. Lucky’s games are dangerous. And there is someone in the shadows, waiting for him to make a mistake.

Leo heard the frantic whisper over and over in his head. She begged him to stay alive, and he couldn’t very well disappoint her by dying.
Someone tried to kill Leo, heir to the Costa family. Call it luck, call it a miracle, or simply say it wasn’t his time, but Leo survived thanks to Freya. Those who tried to kill him were dealt with, swiftly and painfully, but there was someone else controlling the rats, someone close to the family.
Leo had an enemy to eliminate, but when fate throws Freya back in his path, he knew he wasn’t letting go. She saved his life, and it was his duty to protect her.
Her only alibi was Leo. She couldn’t remember what happened, but she knew there was no way she would have anything to do with the missing man. Right?
She had no choice but to depend on Leo and play the role of a happy fiancé, even if it’s temporary-very temporary. But when bullets start flying, Freya knew there was more to Leo and his family than meets the eye. Would she survive their fake engagement?

When the leader of a powerful Russian crime family tasked him with the capture and rendition of his son’s intended bride, Ruslan didn’t think much of the assignment. After all, it wasn’t the first time he’d been sent to retrieve a reluctant bride. But that was before he met the mafia princess, before she got under his skin, melted his walls, and lit a fire in his battered heart.
After a failed hit on her father, Vivian expected everything would settle down and she could get back to what mattered most: finishing her final year of med school so she could finally do something useful with her life. Instead, she found herself drugged and dragged to a foreign country for a marriage she refused to accept. Falling in love with the man who stole her freedom wasn’t even in the cards.
Vincent de Costa didn’t escape the Soviet Union, change his name, and start a new life in America just to have a notorious Russian gangster abduct his youngest child. The last thing he ever wanted was to return to his homeland and face the ghosts of his past, but when a father loves his daughter, there’s nothing he won’t do to get her back.
*Ruslan is a full-length, standalone mafia romance. 100% separate from the first in series, so you don’t have to backtrack if you’d like to enjoy the story!*
