Britney Vegas wedding. Greek mobsters. Somewhat emotionally detached and ruthless Mark Papas. Oh, what a night to remember. If only what happens in Vegas really did stay in Vegas. I wouldn’t be in the mess if I hadn’t let my jealousy get the best of me. I’m on a private jet going to help Mark deal with some family drama. Somehow, I don’t think his family drama is going to be quite the same as mine, like whose turn is it to host Thanksgiving dinner, and Mom should give me the family china. One thing is becoming clear, my feelings for the enigmatic Mark Papas. But am I brave enough to take a shot with a man like him? Mark I should’ve known they’d find me. I left my family in Greece to try and escape them. My uncle is a vicious man—I mean, he killed my father. Now he expects me to forgive, forget, and return to fight for him. I always thought my mother would be safe, since she’s his baby sister, but I underestimated how badly he’d want my deadly skills. Unfortunately, Britney was with me when they approached. She’s the only other woman I care about besides my mother, which is why I’ve tried to avoid being in her presence at all costs. Somehow I know that the only way to keep her safe, and save my mother, is to end this once and for all with my uncle. Retribution. Love. Death. I’ve got a clear shot, and I’m going to take it.

♦ ♦ ♦I’m grateful to already be lying down. There’s no way I’d trust my knees right now. My broody Mark is quite the romantic underneath all that homicidal exterior. “Ómorfi,” he whispers. “What’s that mean? And last night, what were you saying?” “Beautiful. Ómorfi means beautiful. Last night…” He pauses to wet his lips. “I told you that I wanted to live in your heart. Make home there. Share all my nights with you. I knew you were the one from the moment I looked into your brown eyes in the dark basement of K.O. You found me and brought me to the surface. Your kindness is a light in all my darkness.”

Gail Haris believes in fairytales, love, and laughter as the best medicine.
She was born and raised in a small town in the Midwest. After graduating with a degree in Mass Communications, Gail went on adventures traveling in America and Europe.
But her favorite adventures are the ones where she gets lost in a book.
Her love for reading and traveling lead her to attend book conventions. Those conventions gave her the encouragement she needed to combine her passion for creativity and storytelling. Using coffee and her imagination, she loves writing contemporary romances that blend laughter and true love out of every day chaos.
When Gail isn’t day dreaming in front of her computer, she’s busy raising her two daughters with the man of her dreams. She loves traveling with her family, binge watching television series with her husband, singing Disney songs with her daughters, and having huge family and friends get-togethers that involve lots of food and usually a cake.
She hopes by following her own dream of becoming an author, she can set an example to her daughters that dreams can become a reality. Maybe she can encourage you too.
Never stop believing in love, dreams, and yourself. And coffee…don’t give up on coffee and books 😉
