Dark romance (full novel collection)
Love must be tested to be fulfilled
Summer Rideau-Russo cannot bear the thought of losing the love of her life, now her husband, Joseph ‘Scipio’ Russo. But their ongoing struggle to create the family he longs for makes her question their future. When Scipio reveals a painful, almost-unforgivable secret, she knows she must leave.
Now alone, Scipio wants nothing more than to have his wife back in his arms, for desperate passion to devour them once more. But his stepson Carlton is determined to keep the lovers apart, and the boy has secrets of his own. As danger grows closer to home, will Summer and Scipio reconcile before it destroys them both?
Don’t Tear Us Apart is the second novel in the riveting Summer-Scipio Trilogy. Sizzling in its own way, the story is an emotional roller coaster which doesn’t shy away from tough psychological topics.
"Riveting from the start, Summer and Scipio are written as an incredible team - sexy, supportive and respectful, but also secretive in certain ways that keeps the tension humming." — Self Publishing Review
So the game of love and death begins...
Summer Rideau, a beautiful but troubled young lawyer, is not the kind of girl to fall in love and settle down. But reeling from a series of traumatising events, Summer finds comfort in a convicted criminal, Bobby Swinburne, whose twisted ideas of intimacy fulfil her penchant for pain.
As their violent marriage grows out of hand, Summer desperately fights and escapes. But finding a handsome, soft-hearted single father living next door to her hiding place turns Summer's plans upside down. The extraordinary bond she finds with Joseph ‘Scipio’ Russo soon becomes an unimaginable, once-in-a-lifetime romance.
When Bobby hunts her down, Summer is faced with a choice: leave Scipio and deal with her murderous ex alone, or stay and protect the love of her life, whatever the cost.
