Queen of Madness by Lee Jacquot
The greatest weakness any man can ever have is a woman.
The inherent need to protect them can become overwhelming and all consuming. It makes us think irrationally and do stupid things. In my case, falling down a rabbit hole.
My sister made a mistake. One that put us in debt with the Italian mob who owns half the state, and as payment they’ve enlisted me to work for them.
Only it isn’t them I’ll be working for.
It’s for her. Onyx Embros.
She’s a ghost, a legend, the head of their rival mafia family, and the queen of Wonderland.
In order to save my family, I have to act as her guard so they can find a way to kill her. But the longer I stay, the more I realize Onyx isn’t who I thought she was, and neither am I.
Turns out, I’m just as mad.
A Bodyguard Mafia Romance
The Masks We Burn by Lee Jacquot
Amora Joy Orlov.
The thorn in my side, the bane of my existence. The woman with the loud bark and even harsher bite.
Cutthroat and defiant, she’s everything I don’t want, but exactly what I need. And as luck would have it, she also needs something from me.
A deal is struck; use each other until we both get what we want.
It should have been easy, and even easier to walk away in the end.
Somehow though, I’ve grown addicted to the pieces of herself she keeps hidden away, the little glimmers of the woman beneath the ruthless façade.
But the clock is ticking for the both of us, and in the end, it’s Amora who has to decide--
Hide behind the masks we wear, or burn them to ashes?
The Masks We Break by Lee Jacquot
It’s the most widely used deception in the world. It creates weakness within the mind, leaving rooms for distractions, and threatens to hinder my goals of success. I won’t allow something as inconsequential as love to get in my way.
Even if it means pushing away the only one who’s ever made me feel something.
She’s a dangerous distraction.
She’s the sun, threatening to incinerate the darkness from my soul, and keep me from focusing on what really matters–what I’ve always wanted.
And while every fiber of my being knows I need to stay away, I can’t help but wonder...
What good is a knight without a queen to protect?
The Masks We Break is a steamy, opposites attract romance. It does contain certain situations that some readers may find triggering.

The Masks We Wear by Lee Jacquot
My mother tells me you can’t run from your past. You need to face it in order to appreciate the present and plan for the future. But I’d sell my soul not to deal with mine. It’s five foot four, has fake green eyes, and is the cause of all my torment.
When I knew her-when I loved her, she was just Liliana.
But now they call her Lily. The Queen of Emerald Falls.
She thinks she can bully me into silence. Make my life a living hell while keeping her prestigious status intact.
But a lot has changed in three years.
It’s time the Queen met her match.
The Masks We Wear is a full-length, interconnected standalone featuring strong language, explicit sexual scenes, abuse from a parental figure, and mature situations that may be considered triggers for some. Reader discretion is advised.
