Don't Leave Me Breathless
Feisty lawyer Summer Rideau's troubled past has left her with a penchant for pain. And her fascination with twisted desires has led her to a strangled union with a charming convicted criminal. But she’s forced to flee to a safe house when their violent intimacy spirals dangerously out of control.
Joseph “Scipio” Russo’s disastrous failed marriage has made him wary of baring his heart. And with an almost-adult daughter to look after, he’s happy enough being a perfectly kind and gentle role model. But when a gorgeous distressed attorney moves in next door, he can’t resist her pull.
As Summer finds her neighbour’s soft-hearted charm soothing her own deep-seated wounds, she fears her sadistic ex could fly into a murderous rage if he sees them together. And though Scipio senses the stunning woman’s murky background could prove treacherous, he vows to step in before he loses the love of a lifetime.
Will their fateful attraction only lead to more agony, or is this the healing they both need?
Don’t Leave Me Breathless is the first book in the gripping Summer-Scipio psychological suspense trilogy. If you like spine-tingling action, dark sensual tension, and chilling threats, then you’ll adore A Kelly’s edge-of-your-seat thrill-ride.
