What happens when the one you want the most is someone you've never met?
He's a hunted hacker and former international criminal.
She's a bookshop owner and heiress to one of Napa Valley's greatest wineries.
But their identities never mattered.
In the online game they've been playing since they were kids, they've always been comrades, warriors, and friends. Their friendship was a haven from real life.
A place where they were safe… until the day he walked into her store.
It's not fun and games between Vivianne Rossi and Erik Lai anymore.
Enemies are circling and dark secrets are looming.
The real world is coming for them.
Crushed is a steamy billionaire romance with hidden identities, vigilante justice, and a band of friends on the run from the new-age mafia.
The first in the Twisted Vines series, Crushed is a stand-alone romantic suspense novel with no cliffhanger. Characters from First Light from the Haven Island Series make appearances, as Erik's twin sister is the heroine in First Light.
