He’ll Never See It Coming…

I never thought I’d get revenge on Roman Turgenev. He was a Bratva prince, I was a nobody. So I don’t know why he turned his gorgeous green eyes on me, and decided to spend every single day of high school torturing me.

Now he’s the head of the Paris Mafia, more powerful than ever. To me, he’s the same arrogant bully I used to know. I don’t care if he’s trying to be nice to me. It’s only because he needs my help…

And I am going to help him. Or at least, I’ll pretend for a while…

I’ll get close to him.
I’ll learn all his secrets.
And then I’ll destroy him…

“Ink” is a bully mafia romance, Book 7 in the Colors of Crime series. It’s an intense, violent, and sexually charged stand-alone novel. Complete with HEA and no cliff-hangers, plus enough steamy scenes to set your kindle on fire!

This was my first book from the author. I’m kicking myself for not starting the series sooner; it was that good! I’ll make sure to read them as well!!

Roman Turgenev and Mila Drozdov go way back. They both went to Blackwood Academy, but their interactions weren’t the best. He bullied her because of her “lower” status and she couldn’t stand his arrogant attitude. His father is the head of Paris Mafia and he’s the heir to the organization. Now, 5 years later, they meet again in Paris. His father is dead, so he’s now in charge, and she’s interviewing for a journalist job. Her first assignment is to write a piece about his new casino and expose his mafia dealings.

Roman and Mila’s chemistry was apparent from the start. Even 5 years ago, when he was nothing but a bully to her, there were sparks between them. Because of the article she has to write about him, Mila gets to know him better. She gets to see the man behind the arrogant attitude. Roman unveils parts of himself, that she didn’t know existed. Hatred is what feeds the sparks at first, but their passion slowly wins! They have trust issues, that they need to work through. The relationship between them gets even harder because of all the other things going on. Roman has enemies that are out to get him, and Mila’s research puts her in danger.

Their story is definitely amazing!! The book will give you the sexiness, the suspense, and the action you crave. “Ink” will keep you at the edge of your seat and you won’t be able to stop reading until the end!!!






Sophie lives with her husband, two boys, and baby girl in the Rocky Mountain west. She writes intense, intelligent romance, with heroines who are strong and capable, and men who will do anything to capture their hearts.

She has a slight obsession with hiking, bodybuilding, and live comedy shows.  Her perfect day would be taking the kids to Harry Potter World, going dancing with Mr. Lark, then relaxing with a good book and a monster bag of salt and vinegar chips.
