Mark Santos let Isabella slip away once, but not this time. Now he’s playing for keeps.
After her husband’s death, Isabella Santos fled Washington and its bruising memories. But estate matters force her to return and fate gives her a chance to connect with a man she’d always secretly longed to call Master—Mark, the brother of her late husband.
Mark Santos has never forgiven his late brother’s neglect of Isabella, a woman he’s loved from afar for ten years. Now retired from his black ops career, he grabs the second chance Isabella’s sudden appearance in D.C. presents, and their forbidden love blooms into a perfect, domestic discipline life—a life both of them crave. Who cares if her family doesn’t approve? He won’t let her disappear again, especially not when ghosts from the past rise up to threaten her.
Stand-alone and part of an interconnected series. Not a cliff-hanger.
