THE ITALIAN'S SECRET BABY (Book 1, Mafia Masters series)

Raffaella Rowell

Nobody crosses Rocco LaTorre. Not even the mother of his unborn child.

Left devastated by her no-good cheating fiancé, Evie finally gives into her ultimate temptation: one weekend with her roommate's smoking hot older brother. 

No strings, no feelings, and certainly no forever.

But those nights of passion have left Evie with a terrifying secret. One she's determined to keep from Rocco LaTorre—and his notorious underworld family—at all costs.

Unfortunately for her, men like Rocco have ways of uncovering the truth. And when Evie's deception is finally brought to light, there is nowhere she can hide from him.

Or from the lessons he is determined to teach her.
