Born poor and raised on the streets, celebrated bridge builder and billionaire, Mic Vargas is knee-deep in the construction of a trouble-plagued bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey. He really can’t afford to take in a stray thief and fall in love with her. But when a beautiful, snappy-tongued, illegal immigrant literally drops at his feet, he becomes consumed with saving her and her family from poverty.
Cat burglar, Lena Correr stopped trusting anyone long ago. Not even a rich, handsome billionaire with good intentions can break through her defenses. At least, not until an East Coast crime boss threatens her family and forces her to steal for him. Mic vows to help her and her family escape the hell they are in. But will the man Lena is coming to love succeed, or will he end up dead at the hands of an old enemy?
Excerpt from Under the Skin
Mic stopped to let a snowplow pass. Doing street art was taunting the authorities enough. Did his thief know what she was risking? Being caught making graffiti was a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail. But stealing property was considered grand larceny and could land you in prison for the long haul.
He didn’t wish jail time on anyone.
What she had stolen from him alone would get her locked up for years, and he assumed he was not her only mark. If she kept it up long enough, she’d get caught. Everyone got caught eventually.
She’d been lucky it was he who’d rescued her. He didn’t want that beautiful girl to spend her life behind bars.
