Please note: this is not dark romance.

I am not a good man.

I have lied and cheated and stolen. I've decided between life or death, like it was my due. None of it matters, not anymore. These are not my sins.

I see her raise her hands, the dark metal she's clutching reflecting the moonlight. Her finger trembles as she cocks the gun pointed at me. Her eyes are cold, determined, but I know.

I know her.

My name is Devon Andre and I confess my sin. I am not a good man because this is the woman I love.

She pulls the trigger.

* Standalone contemporary romance.
* Mature reader advised due to sexual content and strong language.

 I shake my head, muttering another curse. I should have just left her there. It's not like I have an overwhelming urge to play her knight in shining armor. God knows she's not a damsel in distress. The woman is poison, like all the Moores are. Unfortunately, despite what people think about me, I can't stand men hitting women, and I'm sure as fuck George wouldn't have minded taking another swing at her. We may be criminals, but we're not complete assholes.
She moans again as I put her in the backseat of my black SUV and buckle her in. I round the back, and open up the trunk, looking for something to bind her with. I shake off the fleeting thought that maybe she wouldn't fight me. It's Leighton Moore, for fuck's sake, of course she would.
Fishing out the cable ties, I go back and secure her wrists, then her ankles. It doesn't seem like enough. I don't want to see her eyes when she wakes up, which could be any second now, so I remind myself to hurry the fuck up. I take off the scarf from around her neck, feeling the silk under my fingers for just a second. Then I pull out my pocketknife, and slice it in half. I blindfold her, and then gag her with the other half.
At this point I know it’s probably overkill, but I've never kidnapped a woman before, so who knows? Plus, it's Leighton. She's not just any woman.
Of course I know Leighton Moore. I only wish I didn't.
I knew who she was the first time I laid my eyes on her. It didn’t make any fucking difference in the grand scheme of things. I was doomed to keep seeing her and not being able to do anything about it.
Shaking off that thought, I finally get in the car and start it, backing out and getting the hell away from this place.
When I'm far enough away, I pull over into a secluded woodland area on the side of the road and just sit there, my car idling. What the fuck do I do with her? I could take her to my place, I guess, but I'm barely ever there. Most of the time I’m either at my uncle’s house or I’m out, working. I take out my phone and stare at it, contemplating. I glance back at her, and realize I have no choice. I have to call my uncle.

 Sienna Lane and Autumn Karr are two friends with a joint love of reading, writing, candy, and Disney heroes (and Disney songs, of course.)

When they aren’t scheming against fictional characters, or talking about their favourite books, you can find them ogling tattooed models and trying to figure out how to get them to do a cover shoot for their next book.

Together they wrote VENDETTA, releasing this December, and hopefully many more books to come.They love to hear from readers, so don't hesitate to contact them through their Facebook page (

What a tangled web we weave... This story is all about deceit and betrayal, blackmail, and seemingly, revenge. It's also one of the most unique star-crossed love stories I've read. Fighting, denying and hiding forbidden love in the amidst of rivaling mafia families... Dirty back alley deals... Spies and doublecrossing... Kidnapping and murder... Plottings of revenge, takeovers and the ultimate betrayals. Wow! This book had it all.
It's a gritty, sleasy mix of Romeo and Juliet meets Bonnie and Clyde- minus the bank robbing and suicides. It's deliciously complicated and twisty. You'll never see what's coming and you won't always understand the characters motives or ways of thinking. Until the histories really unfold. Then it really gets interesting- and even more complicated. I'm not talking leaving you dazed and confused, I mean captivating and page turning. I was anxious and eager to see just where this was going to take me. Who is behind the betrayal? Will Devon exact his revenge? What is going on between Leighton and Devon? Could they ever really be together? Would they want to be? Will there be a mafia war in the middle of Boston Mass?
These are the questions I began asking after Leighton Moore makes a misstep and ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time... and gets herself kidnapped by the enemies right-hand man.
Wow! Intense! I loved this story. I was hooked from the beginning. I was fascinated by Devon. He wasn't an easy man to like, but he commanded attention and was so broken and dangerous. I needed to know everything about him. Leighton was, without a better way to put it- not likable in the least. I even had a hard time having any empathy for her. She was feisty and spoiled, reckless and mouthy, but she grew on me as I learned more about her and her history with Devon. She became someone to root for as she began to understand what was really going on around her and made some tough decisions.

VENDETTA is an unconventional love story. It's dark. It's mysterious. It's a times shocking. It's disturbingly sexy and romantic. My only disappointment? That it's a standalone. Now that I've fallen for these characters, I need more, but I settle for whatever Karr and Lane offer up next.
