Dark Past

Isabella Lovino moved to New York City to hide from the demons of her past, leaving everyone behind. Her troubled history makes it difficult to get a job, but when an opportunity comes up to work at an architectural firm, she takes it. On her first day of work she bumps into a stranger on the street and her whole world changes.


The gorgeous Jason Hart owns his own architectural firm, but that’s not enough. He knows what he wants, and what he wants is the beautiful Isabella Lovino—the same thing he has wanted since college. When he sees her at the restaurant, he knows he can’t let her get away this time. Will she notice him now?

Dark Presence

Jake Tomasi came into my life like a stalker in the night.


He is amazing, smart, and extremely hot! There is something about him that draws me in and I need to find out why. I want him—badly! I know he will change my whole way of life, but I can't let him know the real me. I know once I let him in, he will break down all the barricades I have thrown up to protect myself and keep things hidden for so long.


Jake knew he was defying his parents, but he didn’t care! He refused to have an arranged marriage and headed back to the States to find a wife. He had been looking so long but then, there she was—the most beautiful woman he had ever seen—Jen Stanton. As soon as he saw her that day from the cafe', he knew she was the one, the woman he had to have.
