Mafia Heat: Vincenzo

Deception Never Looked So Good...

NADIA
I needed answers,
The truth to the past,
But what I find changes everything.

A dead body,
A murderer,
And I'm the living, breathing eye witness,
Of a crime they'll do anything to hide.

Now, I'm on the run,
And slamming into the hard, rugged body of Vincenzo Marchelli,
Should send me racing for the hills,
But something calms me,
Gives me sanctuary.

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time,
But it just may be the saving grace I needed all along.

VINCENZO
Liars, crime, coverups, and corruption,
As an attorney, I can spot it all a mile away.
As the son of a mob boss, it follows me everywhere.

But when Nadia literally lands in my arms,
With an unbelievable story,
I know one thing:
Her fear is real,
And my desire is ignited.

Come Hell or high-water,
I will protect her,
Save her,
Even if it means going against her biggest enemy,
My Family.

Once she stares into his eyes, she can’t seem to forget him. While attending the bachelor auction with her mother, she has no desire to bid on anyone. That all changes once Nathan takes the stage.

Nathan is older and established. His ex-wife isn’t entirely out of the picture either. It’s complicated but isn’t it always? Vienna is struggling to find her place. She’s unsure of her future but she’s determined to prove to him that he belongs in her life. It’s a good thing she’s persistent. They could both use a little destiny.

Can two workaholics find a way to make love happen when something is trying to keep them apart?

With his head always stuck in a book or working long hours at Wilder Coffee, Dustin Wilder hadn’t realized how much he’d been missing out on life. That all changed the night of the charity bachelor auction when the sexiest woman he’d ever seen bid on him for an outrageous amount.

Marilyn Parker owns her own business. One of the city’s top interior design companies. She prided herself always being busy with work and not having to think about the family she tried to distance herself from. She attends the city’s annual bachelor auction, expecting to leave empty handed. But when she sees ‘hot as hell’ Dustin nervous on the stage, she wants him, no matter the price.

Can a one-night sexual encounter turn into more? Dustin thinks so, but Marilyn doesn’t with a family like hers that she’ll ever get the things in life she so desires.
