Beyond Paradise, by Barbara Nolan

Jonny Vallone, the dark, brooding owner of Manhattan nightclub Beyond Paradise, doesn’t need any more complications in his life. Then savvy con artist Cheryl Benson barges into his office begging for help after witnessing a mob hit.

Cheryl’s fast-paced, out-of-control life is closing in, and bad boy Jonny with his powerful connections might be her only hope against the ruthless crime boss. Her knight in black Brioni has a body made for sin with enough baggage to fill a 747, but when a near-fatal attack throws the two together, they implode in a night of steamy, sheet-gripping passion.

Jonny can’t resist the beautiful blonde with the pleading green eyes. Plus he has his own agenda with the underworld thug who owns a piece of his soul.

Their wild ride whisks them from the high-powered glitz of Manhattan to the sultry beaches of Miami in a desperate attempt to break free of their shady pasts while trying to tame their explosive passion and the dangerous deceptions swirling around them.
