One moment was all it took to change my life completely. The fire damaged me beyond repair and left me broken.
I am constantly on the run, trying to escape the darkness that seems to follow me everywhere. My father, a feared mob boss, is after me, and his intentions are unknown.
I sought refuge in the arms of his enemies – five men who are as dark and dangerous as the ones they are chasing. Arsen, Colt, Weston, Mace, and Hawke.
They are the only ones who can save me from my father’s wrath, but they could also be my downfall. With them, I find pleasure in the most forbidden ways.
In their embrace, I ignite and burn, but I cannot help but love every second of it. **NOTE: This book was previously published as Five Fathers by Kate Morgan.
