Being attracted to her wasn't wrong… but acting on it would be.
As the patriarch of the powerful and wealthy Cavalieri family, my choices came with consequences for everyone around me.
The roots of my ancestral, billionaire-dollar winery stretch deep into the rich, Italian soil, as does our legacy for ruthlessness and scandal.
It wasn't the fact she was half my age that made her off limits.
Nothing was off limits for me.
A wounded bird, caught in a trap not of her own making, she posed no risk to me.
My obsessive desire to possess her was the real problem.
For both of us.
But now that I've seen her, tasted her lips, I can't let her go.
Whether she likes it or not, she needs my protection.
I'm doing this for her own good, yet she fights me at every turn.
Refusing the luxury I offer, desperately trying to escape my grasp.
I need to teach her to obey before the dark rumors of my past reach her.
She cannot find out what I've done, not before I make her mine.
If you love the dark and twisted romantic suspense of Natasha Knight, A. Zavarelli, Charmaine Pauls, and Anna Zaires you will love this series!
Lose yourself in the steamy, enemies to lovers drama of the Cavalieri men.

I turned on him, claws bared. Before I could scratch at his eyes, he flung me over his shoulders and carried me inside a farmer's cottage.
Despite looking like a humble eighteenth century cottage from the outside, it was actually extremely chic and eclectically decorated on the inside, not that I had much time to look around. Barone marched straight through open floor plan of the main rooms to the back main bedroom. He then flung me onto the center of the bed.
Keeping his eyes trained on me, he kicked the door closed as he reached for his belt buckle.
I took in a sharp breath. "What do you think you're doing?"
His gaze roamed over my body as he smirked. "What I should have done the first time I laid eyes on you."
He whipped his belt off.
He nodded as he kicked off his boots and pulled his shirt over his head. "Yes, I think I am. And it is you, dolcezza, who have made me so.”
I skirted back to the edge of the bed and swung my feet over. I then plastered my back to the wall as I inched toward the large glass doors which lead out to the veranda.
He nodded toward the doors. "Go ahead. I can f*ck you out there in the wild just as easily as in here on a bed."
Taking my chances, I lunged for the door.
I didn't make it.
