Book Description

Allie Jordan is in love and believes her future is bright. She’s finally going to have the family she longs for. But her dreams fade to black when her mobster-wanna-be boyfriend is executed at her feet. She’s spared the same fate by a muscle-bound vigilante who tosses her over his shoulder and turns her life upside down, in more ways than one.

Jase Tyler has one goal in life—to exact revenge on the Chicago mobsters who slaughtered his family. But when he rescues Allie, things begin to change. The last thing he wants is to be responsible for a woman who reminds him he has a soul, but there’s a price on her head, and he refuses to let the mob have her.

Love and danger are now a packaged deal, and they can't have one without the other. The true test will come when she discovers what he's been keeping from her.

Editorial Reviews


"Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I chose to read this book after receiving a request from the author as I love romantic suspense. However, I have never read anything like this. The book doesn't waste anytime getting with character or location set up or description. The action begins immediately as well as the love story.

This book was a very quick read because the action started so soon, I had to find out why. The pages turned very quickly. I liked both main characters. Allie was a great heroine. Strong, but not so much that she became unbelievable. She was tough and could survives the situations by herself or with little help. I also liked Jase as the hero. I instantly liked him. I was intrigued with the situation he had created for his life and how he handled things. I do have to say that my least favorite character was Max. I did not like him even in the beginning.

Not only was it just the suspense story and the romance story, but the story involving family and friends that made this a great novel. If you like romantic suspense, you should definitely read this book." -Date With a Book Blog

"Cindy Stark has earned a permanent place on my bookshelf. Forever." -Kerrigan Byrne, Author

From the Author

For years, I consumed every book by Nora Roberts I could find (still do).  When I ran out of Roberts' titles, I devoured Jennifer Crusie.  Then came Patricia McLinn, and more recently Sylvia Day and Marie Force.  These women are my heroes.  Their characters jump from the pages and drag me into their imaginary worlds where love conquers all.  Yes, I'm a hopeless romantic.

Several years back, I discovered that writing about intriguing characters was as much a passion for me as reading about them.  In 2012, the fates smiled on me, and I was able to realize the joys of seeing my books published.  The first time I saw my name on a best-selling list next to Nora Roberts, I cried.  I didn't matter that I was only there for a short time.  I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my stories with the world and for the fans who seem to enjoy reading them.  Thank you for giving a new author a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So, one of my favorite things about this book was how unique the plot line was. There was never a time that I felt it was predictable or boring, it kept me up WAY into the night. The Heroine is identifiable and I fell in LOVE with the Hero right away. Their story was so much fun to read! There were moments I laughed out loud and moments I cried for both of them. I loved it so much, I bought Cindy Stark's other book, "It's Only Love". I'm loving that one too! Cindy Stark has earned a permanent place on my bookshelf. Forever.

This was a good read. I had a few problems relating to Allie at first, but got over them pretty quick. The plot is terrific, the writing really good and the characters believable. I want a Jase of my own :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Vengeance--Loved this book! February 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm so glad I found this book. It was a great read. The character Allie is easy to identify with and is well developed. As is the heroic character Jase. Loved the plot of running from the mob while an unexpected romance blossoms. You felt for Allie's struggle to understand the danger she has unwittingly become involved in, and Jase's journey is equally compelling as Allie's presence awakens feelings in him he thought were forever left in his tragic past. I couldn't put this book down. Definitely an enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. May 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first couple of chapters, I thought I had this book figured out and the ending written. Was I wrong! This was a fantastic, wonderfully written love story with a few twists and turns that will leave you with your jaw on the ground. All I can say is WOW!! I mean, WOW! I read the reviews for this book and one reader said this book was one of a few that made her cry. Ditto! This is a love story for anyone who will love, not only the heart racing, fast paced twists but the story of Allie & Jase. This is a great read.

By Cindie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the suspense and twists in this romance. Cindy Stark has a great way of weaving the action and suspense into a sweet and powerful love story. This is my 3rd book by Cindy Stark and I hope she is going to keep the action and passion coming. She is one of my new favorite authors and I look forward to the next read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet vengeance September 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked the begining - very original, and so is the rest of the plot/story line. However the lack of depth of the heroine, who went from being deeply in love with one guy and should have been in severe state of shock over his loss, but suddenly becomes wildly attracted to the hero in just a heartbeat, felt very unrealistic and broke the spell for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get into first October 4, 2012
By Renee B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First let me say I am only half way through the book. But that's just it----I've been reading it for 3 days and am only 50% done??? I average 3-4 books a week, but I just can't get invested in this one. I'll admit, partly it's because I'm not a huge fan of mob related stories. But mostly, it's the age of the characters. She's only 19!!! And I think he's 22 though I could be mistaken about that. If I wanted to read teen fiction I'd buy teen fiction. Some reviewers have complained about the fact that Allie falls for Jase only days after the so-called love of her life is gunned down in front of her. But to me, that's something a 19 year old would do. We all think we know it all at 19 and know what love is, but we don't have a clue at that age. I'm just not interested in the teen angst. As for the story....I'm finding it pretty unremarkable so far. It's just too distracting to me to constantly be thinking "Now where does he get all this money? How does he know how to do all this at such a young age?" etc etc. I know I have a lot of story left, but I can guess how things will end up, and really, I just don't care about these people. She was an idiot to get herself in this mess, and he's an even bigger idiot to try to do what he's doing. I wish I could just give up, but I don't like to leave books unfinished. Plus, I paid $4 for the thing.

***Ok, after finishing the other half of the book, I'm upped my stars from 2 to 3. Really, I would given the first half 2 stars and the 2nd half 4. The 2nd half, which takes place 6 years later, was a much better read for me since the characters were older and more mature. However, without ruining the book for others (like reviewers did for me!), there were some plot points that were annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alpha Anti hero October 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The storyline of this book spans several years and starts when the heroine is a teen who finds herself in a terrifying situation, alone, and pregnant. Jase feels obligated to take care of her but despite his feelings for her, he pushes her away but continues to support her. Allie is strong and survives against the odds. She never forgets her attraction tho Jade, but tries too move on because she knows he has criminal ties and a vendetta that will likely get him killed. When the two are thrown together many years down the road, sparks continue to fly, but can Jase give up his need for revenge, and can Allie forgive him for the major secrets he had kept from her? Can either one of them accept their own worthiness to be loved at all?
