ego, Vanessa Vale, sticks with steamy Wild West romps.
A little
bit about the novel:
A fun weekend at a friend’s wedding in Denver takes a bizarre
twist for Anna Scott when her rental car is pulled over due to an “anonymous
tip.” In her trunk…a dead man linked to warring crime families in Denver and
New York. It should be easy for an innocent woman to be cleared for an simple
mix-up. But was it a mistake? The police aren’t so sure, and neither is the
crime boss who wants vengeance for his son-in-law’s death. Suddenly appearing
on the radar means that now Anna Scott is in real trouble. Two years ago, Anna
Scott didn’t exist. The police think she knows way too much about criminal
procedures and they’re determined to find out her secret. Their attention
forces Anna to play a deadly game of cat and mouse with both the mafia and the
police. This twist of fate could not only expose her, but place her, and anyone
close to her in jeopardy.

Jake Griffin is playing a deadly game. He’s spent the last few
months undercover in the Moretti crime family. The mysterious and beautiful
Anna Scott is a big problem. Moretti assigns him to find out who she is and
what she’s after, and to kill her if she becomes a problem. Jake needs to focus
on taking down Moretti, not risking his life and career protecting a sexy woman
who is a complete mystery. Unfortunately, he can’t stop wondering about her. He
knows she’s lying, but his gut instincts, and the bone deep desire he feels
every time he sees her, won’t allow him to walk away. He discovers that he’s
willing to go to war with the whole world for one alluring, yet vulnerable
woman. He can’t seem to stop taking desperate gambles where she’s concerned.
The most dangerous of all might be trusting her with the truth.

Excerpt from Relentless:
I
still couldn’t tell Anna I was a cop. She’d be pissed—understatement of the
year—and probably run off and take on that new identity. At the moment, it was
critical I made connections with the likes of Frank Carmichael and I couldn’t
do that if I was a cop. He wouldn’t take a meeting from me then if I held up
the last corned beef sandwich on the planet.
“You
dragged me over here on a Sunday morning to talk about my dates?” Carrie wanted
to know.
“You
have more than one?”
I
wanted her to line them all up so I could check them out. Carrie might be
thirty-two years old, but it didn’t mean I wouldn’t shoot any asshole who
treated her poorly.
“Save
your alpha personality for Anna,” Carrie grumbled, letting her head fall back
against the couch cushion.
Anna
just arched a brow and her gaze flicked down my body. Just a look like that had
me getting hard, which wasn’t good in front of my sister. Alpha with Anna was
definitely working—for both of us.
To
hide my eagerness for Anna, I walked to the kitchen to get a drink. My dick was
running the show now and I needed that to stop. It wasn’t going to see any
action until I saved Anna, so I needed to get my brain in gear and focus on the
dangerous shit. “I need you to set up a meeting for me with Uncle Frank,” I
called out.
Carrie
sat up. I couldn’t see her, but I knew this because her feet hit the floor.
“Why would you want me to do that?”
“Because
he’s going to help me kill Anna.”
