a violent cartel
and one hell of a crazy night
changed everything for Lillian Maddox.
RHAPSODY, the second book in the highly erotic Teplo Trilogy, will release on October 19, 2015!
After Anton Vetrov brutally murders a young girl as a warning to Tristan Riley, the broken DEA agent believes the best thing for Lillian Maddox to do would be to stay far, far away from him. But Lillian knows a thing or two about fear, and she's not willing to let the man she loves push her away that easily. If he won't fight for them, she will... even if that means risking her life to prove she's strong enough to live in his world.
Her plan ends in disaster when she's dragged out of Teplo at gunpoint, forcing Tristan onto a collision course with the Vetrov family and Pedro Francisco. With nothing left to lose except the only woman who has ever mattered to him, he will do whatever it takes to stop Vetrov and Francisco from ever hurting her again.
But he doesn't know they've been waiting for him to make his move. When he does, all hell breaks loose, and his life is on the line. It's up to Lillian and the DEA to save him, and she's terrified they won't make it in time.
Thrust headlong into a violent, bloody confrontation with the Vetrov family, Lillian comes face to the face with the heartbreaking realization that maybe she doesn't belong in Tristan's world, after all. When the smoke clears, will he be able to convince his ballerina that she's the best thing for him, or will he lose her and the chance at a real future once and for all?
Rhapsody is intended for readers aged 18 and over due to graphic scenes of violence, drug abuse, and sexual situations.

A frightened whimper bubbled in the back of her throat.
"Little Mama? You okay?"
Oh, thank you, God!
Breath left Lillian's lungs in a dizzying rush.
"I-I'm fine," she wheezed, falling onto her back on the ground as her entire body went limp. The arm Malachi had grasped throbbed as it twisted, pulling a soft cry from her lips. She was so relieved to hear Michael's voice, she didn't even care about the pain.
"Thank Baby Jesus," Michael huffed and then metal clicked. Another groan sounded, though she wasn't sure if it came from him or Malachi. "You, motherfucker," he said, panting, "Have the right to remain silent. Don't say shit. Don't do shit. We'll fuck you six ways to Sunday in a court of law if you do. And call a fucking lawyer, you asshole. If you can't afford one, we'll find you one. But I swear to God, if you move so much as a finger, I am going to shoot you."
"Ha!" A third voice sounded—slightly breathless and amused—from somewhere to Lillian's left. She cried out in fear, and then realized the voice belonged to Tori Dodd. "That was the most pathetic rendition of the Miranda Warning I've ever heard," the woman said, coming closer.
"Yeah, well," Michael responded, "the asshole broke my hand. He's knocked out anyway. I just felt a need to say it."
Tori snorted and said something about "having her." Lillian dimly registered that she was talking to someone else, another member of her team probably. How many had Vetrov's people taken out?
"She's fine," Michael said. "This big bastard's out cold. He was–"
"They have Jason and Tristan," Lillian interrupted desperately, the thought spearing through her like a lance again.
"There was a woman, a redhead. S-she s-s-said they have Jason and Tristan." Tears started rolling down her face, adrenaline giving way to fear. She struggled into a sitting position, crying out at the pain shooting through her arm and leg in tandem.
It hurt. Christ, it hurt like hell.
