Ari DeMille is now married and five months pregnant with her
husband's baby. Ari met her husband, Dane at his exclusive
resort 10,000 Lux where she worked as an event planner and
it was love at first sight for them. Dane is a billionaire
who is part of a secret society that has originally set up
to help people, but has over the years become corrupt. Since
the explosion took out the main structure of 10,000
Lux, almost killing Ari, and as far as the public's
knowledge killing Dane and his life long friend and
bodyguard Amano. Now Amano is watching over Ari, while Dane
is in FBI custody and working with them to bring down
indictments to the rest of the corrupt Illuminati Secret
Society. While Dane's motives are pure, many of the
businessmen in the secret society want to turn him to their
self serving purpose, or eliminate him.
When their child is born, the stakes become higher, and soon
the pieces of this elaborate puzzle start falling into
place. Even uncovering more than one person in the
couple's inner circle is hiding terrible secrets. Ari and
Dane team up to unravel the mystery quickly before
everything they hold dear to them is destroyed.
BURNED HEARTS was an exciting read, leaving readers addicted
to the series and the much needed answers that I am sure

You will regret if you don't read it. I cannot wait to see
what else she writes next.

were melded together, our bodies moving in perfect sync with
each other. I wanted to be wrapped around his heart, live

love. I wanted to be his every waking thought, every breath
