The Ties That Bind

When Xander St. John’s twin brother Jayce orders a hit on Arabella Wilson, the daughter of their greatest rival, Xander has no choice but to obey … except Xander and Arabella have a long, sordid history filled with heartbreak and regret. Arabella might have destroyed him, but Xander can’t bring himself to kill the woman he once asked to marry him. Growing increasingly unstable and impatient, Jayce issues a deadly ultimatum: kill Arabella or be next. Now, Xander has a choice to make. Someone is going to die, but who will it be? His brother or his lover; his darkness or his light? Find out in this sexy mafia romance inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet.


Arabella is utterly phenomenal. Intelligent, ruthless, ambitious, heartbroken, hurting, full of love and pain and ultimately one of the strongest and most complex heroines I’ve had the pleasure of reading.
