How To Con A Crime Boss

Romance Suspense | Romance Erotica Sensual

Seth Wellington’s father was a crime lord, and Seth doesn’t want to follow in his footsteps but upon his death a couple of things happen. The F.B.I. wants him to take over and be their undercover man in his father’s family and other people just want his place in the family. Figuring out HOW TO CON A CRIME BOSS is going to be harder than he thought. Especially when Harley Adaire is hired to be his bodyguard. It doesn’t take long for Seth to want to do more than have her guard his body – he wants to do things to her body.

Harley is very good at her job and very serious about keeping Seth protected. Too bad that despite everything she knows to do, her heart is starting to get involved. That isn’t supposed to happen. Facing danger is one thing but facing danger with a man who is stealing your heart is so much something else.

HOW TO CON A CRIME BOSS is the third of author Cynthia Eden’s Wilde Ways: Gone Rogue series. It easily reads as a standalone novel because anything needed to make it make sense is explained along the way. Seth and Harley seem like a couple that shouldn’t even like each other. In fact, it certainly feels that way at first. But as the storyline flows on so do the feelings that grow bit by bit. The intimate scenes are passionate but not overly prolonged or graphic – just the right heat.

The secondary characters in HOW TO CON A CRIME BOSS are varied and some you will love and others you will hope they get theirs and – oh, sorry that would be considered a spoiler. Suffice it to say family, friends, lovers, and others work together in this offering. Though sometimes you aren’t sure exactly who are the real bad guys. With all the lies and manipulations who is friend and who is foe?

A well-written, easy-to-follow storyline but with enough danger, twists, turns, and intrigue to please the adventurous audience and more than enough romance to please those who want love and happily ever after. You will find everything you could possibly want in HOW TO CON A CRIME BOSS!

His life is in her hands.

Seth Wellington needs protection, but he never expects for that protection to arrive in the ever-so-sexy form of Harley Adaire. Their initial meeting is electric, and each time that he is around the deceptively delicate Wilde agent, his attraction to her grows. But this isn’t the time for Seth to be falling for someone. The world thinks he’s a master criminal. Just because his father maybe, sorta, okay, yes, was a master criminal. Now the FBI wants Seth to take over his father’s organization. The Feds want him to work undercover and bring down some very, very bad people.

The problem is that those bad people want to destroy him.

So in strolls Harley. A woman with a thirst for adventure, a smile meant to tempt, and a body that will rule his fantasies for years. She can be his bodyguard and his partner. She’ll stay by his side, and they’ll trip up the criminals surrounding them. Sounds easy. But…it isn’t. Because Seth has to pretend to be someone completely different. Someone dark and dangerous, and the more he pretends, the more he starts to lose sight of his real self.

And the more he wants her.

Possessive, passionate, deadly—that’s the man Seth has to be. Only when he’s with Harley, the possessiveness and the passion are all too real. Too bad they are surrounded by criminals who are hell bent on wrecking Seth’s world. The danger is mounting, the desire Seth feels for Harley is raging out of control, and, unfortunately, the body count may be starting to rise.

Because when you try to con a crime boss, you’re playing a very, very dangerous game…

Step one: Show no fear.
Step two: Prepare to fight dirty.
Step three: Become the man everyone fears. Everyone, but her…

A man isn’t supposed to get territorial when it comes to his bodyguard, but Harley is no ordinary bodyguard. She’s the woman who is quickly coming to obsess Seth. In this new, dark world around him, she’s also the only person he trusts. Now, if they can just stay alive and bring down the bad guys, maybe he can get his bodyguard to fall for him. Maybe.
