Series: The Diamond Empire
Author: Kathy Coopmans
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime, Enemies to Lovers
A new series of standalone full-length novels from USA Today Bestselling Author Kathy Coopmans.
For years, I pretended to be something I’m not. Drowning the beast living inside of me in copious amounts of alcohol and women. Not that I complained.
And then Victoria Hughes walks back into my life, and took me by surprise.
The woman stunning me clear out of my mind the minute my mouth touched hers.
After tragedy strikes and knocks her off her feet, I expected her to come to me, yet she didn’t. She pretended we’re nothing. But I see her. I’ve watched her, and she’s fighting grief while battling an all-consuming need for vengeance.
If anyone understands that, it’s me.
Deep down, she knows the only way to ease the pain is to give in to me and let justice bleed from her enemy’s veins.
And she will. I’m the type of man to make sure of it.
But there’s a problem. We have no idea who the enemy is. All we know is they want to destroy The Diamond Empire.

“Where the hell do you think you’re going? It’s snowing out there.” It’s a blizzard. Colder than a witch’s tit. Blowing snow and below zero temps. The only thing I’ll never get used to in this city.
Victoria’s body tenses, which I don’t like at all, still, she’s going to answer my question. She has no choice. I won’t let her walk out the door looking like that. Fuck what Theo thinks or says when he gets here.
“No shit, Sherlock, this is New York. We get snow, and sometimes several feet all in a matter of hours. Maybe you should move south of the border. As far away from me as you can get.”
“Cute. Not going anywhere, Victoria. Neither are you.” I grin. Nothing turns me on more than her sassy mouth. Except maybe when the time comes where she says my name. “Now, answer my question.”
Slamming her hands against the counter, she whirls on me, enough to stumble me back a step. Her lips set in a thin line. Pure fire behind her stare, and goddamn if it doesn’t make me want to plant her on the counter, kiss her in a way that reminds her who she belongs to.
Instead, because I’m sure she’d bite my tongue off, I lean forward, grab her hips again, our mouths only inches apart. Her lids flutter, lips parting, and making me want to devour her.
“I don’t have to answer you, now back the fuck off.” She gets a free pass on swearing this one time. She might be slowly conceding to the dark side, but her soul and spirit are too flawless for trash talk.
Unless I’m balls deep inside her.
