Unswerving Unstoppable Unhinged
Some curses aren’t meant to be broken . . .
"Fun romance with a touch of mystery."

They say that breaking up is hard to do, and for TÃ©a Caruso
it's especially hard to break up with her California Mafia
family when they don't want to break up with her. TÃ©a's
grandfather is the Mafia boss, having reclaimed the title
after her father was killed. TÃ©a's hopes that opening her
own interior design business would distance her from her
family and give her a respectable name in Palm Springs are
only moderately successful. So far, her clients have been
tacky, at best, and she's always aware of the lengths her
grandfather will go to keep tabs on her. But a huge new job
is within her grasp, and she knows if she nails it, it will
put her name on the map with the respectability she longs
Johnny Magee hasn't set foot in Palm Springs since his
father was gunned down in front of him 16 years ago. He has
a successful career as a gambler, loads of money, women all
over him, and yet he's suddenly compelled to return to Palm
Springs to figure out who killed his father. Johnny buys
his father's old house and contacts TÃ©a to decorate it,
knowing that the rumor is that her family killed his father
because his father killed hers. Johnny believes that TÃ©a
can help him get to the bottom of things. He doesn't expect
to fall for her, and he doesn't know how she'll react when
he tells her who he really is.
I highly recommend AN OFFER HE CAN'T REFUSE. It's a well-
written tale with some romance, some mystery, as well as
likable and believable characters.
Meet Californian TÃ©a Caruso ...
her mother drives her crazy,
her sisters give "advice." She
has a family just like any other,
except for one tiny difference ...
Her grandfather isn't just
in the mob ... he is the mob!
And no one knows this better than Johnny Magee. The Caruso
family destroyed his dad. Now, it's payback time -- and
he's going to need an unsuspecting insider ... one who
won't realize what he's really after.
TÃ©a loves her family but hates what they do. She's tried to
stay far away from her notorious relatives, making a legit
name for herself as an interior designer. But her
grandfather Cosimo's gala 80th birthday is coming up. Every
mobbed-up member of the family from San Francisco to
Sarasota will be there -- and it's time for TÃ©a to face the
family or face the consequences.
Intent on using TÃ©a for revenge, Johnny hires her to redo
his home, but then she makes him "offers" he can't refuse.
Soon he's falling in love with the enemy and when all the
secrets are revealed, what will TÃ©a do ... and even worse,
what will her family?
