If Looks Could Kill

[I don't want to die, but I'm tired of picking myself up every time I fall. Won't you please carry me?] Emilie is bullied because of her selective mutism. The popular girls at her college think she is a freak who won't survive the real world since she won't speak up for herself. One day, they steal her clothes at a pool party and force her to venture out dressed in only a towel. She knocks on a random door without knowing it's Brandon Brooks's home. He is the most popular guy at her college - rich and attractive - and she is convinced he won't help her. Brandon thinks she is a loser like everyone else, but there is one thing Emilie doesn't know about him: he isn't heartless.

"Having his undivided attention is unnerving. I take a deep breath, move a little then start belting out lyrics. Since he is completely focused on me, I follow suit. I watch him the whole time as I sing. Soon, the mood in the room becomes romantic. Our gazes are locked as I sing and he watches. It feels almost surreal, as if enchanted, and it makes me give my all. I lose control of myself at some point and find myself drawing closer to him. His intense gaze is still on, his eyes have become darker and I find that I'm enjoying too much. I move on to the second song without stopping. Its only when I finish that my senses return to me and I walk back to where I started from. Mason doesn't say a thing. ""What do you think?"" I ask him. ""Good,"" he says with a slight nod. ""You can go now. Your payment will be sent to your boss."" What? Just like that? I wanted to vocalise my thoughts but decide against it. I'm mad but I pick up my purse and storm out of there. I hate that I gave him the performance of my life, and that was all he said.... *** In which a billionaire is determined to have a beautiful musician to himself by all means."

"Shadows of Desire" is a gripping tale set in the heart of New York City's criminal underworld, where Luca Salvatore, the powerful leader of the Salvatore crime family, finds himself irresistibly drawn to Isabella Romano, a fiercely independent woman with whom his love is forbidden. As they navigate the dangerous landscape of rival families and betrayal, Luca and Isabella's passion ignites a series of events that test their loyalty, courage, and ultimately, their ability to defy fate itself in the name of their forbidden love.
