Walk on the wild side with The Gun Runner. Lovers of Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s King series and Tillie Cole’s Scarred Souls series will lose themselves in this story of all-consuming passion and dark deals.
Don’t miss the first book in a seductive new series from #1 Amazon bestselling author Scott Hildreth
Once, I took down terrorists on the front lines as a marine.
Now I’m in the business of bad.
I’ve sold guns to people others might not approve of.
I’ve eliminated the criminals, the lowlifes and the thugs who’ve tread on my turf.
And I looked the Sicilian Mafia boss in the eye and told him to f*** off.
No one tells me no, unless it’s their last word.
I didn’t just act the part of bad—I lived it. Then she stumbled into my life.
I tried to stay away from her. Tried focusing on moving my merchandise. But one smile from Terra was like a shot to the heart.
She’s mine now. And no one threatens what’s mine.
I’ve seen a lot of terrible things in my life.
I grew up around lies and deception, and I ran away from all of them.
Until I met him.
I knew he was corrupt. I knew he was dangerous.
I should have stayed away, but my attraction to him, my need for him, overrode my logic.
Now I love him.
If he finds out who I am, we’re done and I’ll be nothing.
I never wanted to be the Mafia princess they tried to make me, but mia familia had other plans. And what mia familia wants…it gets.
Only Michael Tripp can save me.
Tripp and Terra’s story continues in Book Two of Mafia Made, The Game Changer

Scott Hildreth is my new favorite author. His style of writing is clear, catchy and very interesting! I was searching for a good book to read and stumbled upon the " Gun Runner" and couldn't put the book down. I can't wait to for the next book!

When least expected . I loved
Terra & Tripp , Cap & Michelle were funny . Tank proved everybody needs a 2nd chance
At life . Will definitely recommend book to friends who love action storylines .
"Nothing Else Matters"
First things first, I've never heard of SD until recently. I did not know of him at all, when I got this. I have purchased this book by pre-ordering & I bought the audiobook when it went live. This will be one that I will re-read! I can't wait for the next one, whether it's more about these two main characters or the secondary characters, maybe the best friends of the main characters?! I actually hope there's one more about these two & then go onto other characters, but it's just my own preference. Of course, that depends on how Book #2 would go. Doesn't really matter, this Book #1 doesn't really end on a cliffhanger. It can be a standalone. Again, there are my thoughts & preferences! No matter what, I hope that I get an opportunity to work with him again! Secondly, when you buy this book and you sit down to read it, make sure you have no plans because you are not going anywhere until you are finished! I will guarantee you of that! If you want an escape and a book that feels real, in a mafia/gun runner scenario, this book pulls you in and has you turning the pages until there's no pages left! This is fast paced & hot as hell.... You will need a fan, cold shower, a significant other/spouse/booty call or something. The scenes are that hot! Maybe read it with them? I know I'm going to! Now, let's move onto the book, which is told in a 2 POV (I have to admit, I love to read a book told from both sides) Michael Tripp is an ex-Marine, gun runner, hot as sin, alpha male, who takes sh*t from no one. Except maybe his best friend, Caps (who I love & hope he gets his own book). He was trying to keep his business under the radar of the local Italian mafia in Kansas City. He doesn't want to work with them, doesn't want to answer to anyone, and then he comes upon a buffoon and woman arguing. Enter the beautiful, sassy, feisty, mafia princess, Terra. Who isn't as sweet as she seemed when Tripp came upon them. She kicks the buffoon's nads a few times (her ex of 6 months, who didn't get the hint of EX). Her confidant/bestie is Michelle (wouldn't mind her getting a book with Caps). Tripp & Terra end up becoming friends with some banter & that turns into some erotic scenes! With so many lies, including what they do for a living or who they are, is there no turning back for Tripp or Terra? Action, drama, humor, holy hotness, emotions, wants vs needs, lust vs love, romance, suspense, gritty, and so much more.... I want so much more! Is there any way to save themselves & their relationship if/when the truth comes out?Sorry, no spoilers from me! I bought the book & I bought the audiobook...I didn't have to! This book is a must read! Go grab this book! Again, you will not regret it!
