The Criminal and the Beautiful | Rose Fallen

The Criminal and the Beautiful

He’s every mother’s worst nightmare . . . and every woman’s secret fantasy.

A Brazilian-Romany gypsy and a paroled ex-con, formerly part of a vicious street gang, Hanzi wants a new life but he can’t escape his past. His old gang’s leader and his friends don’t understand why he wants to distance himself from them. The more he does, the less they trust him–and living with his sister and her cop husband doesn’t help. The last thing he needs is some jumped-up snot of a rich college girl with a hard-on for literature hanging around the coffee-shop where he works tempting him with her pretty eyes and hot little body.

Usually a good student, Riley flunks a research project when family problems distract her. She has no choice but to stay on campus during spring break to redo the work. With her own family’s criminal past, she has no patience with the hot tattooed ex-con who works at the coffee shop where she likes to study–and less for her own attraction to him.

They can’t stand each other, but they can’t fight the pull, either. Despite a disastrous first date, Hanzi finds himself wanting more than smoking hot sex from the pretty little rich girl; Riley just wants him. Too bad her dad’s dead set against Hanzi and keeps asking him to do some pretty shady favors. Is he trying to trick Hanzi back into his criminal life or just take advantage of his skills? Then his old friends come after him, and being a good man starts to seem like more trouble that it’s worth, especially if it won’t help him protect Riley.
