Ace of Hearts
In Ace of Hearts by Renee Rose, when her producer/manager's loan from the mob comes due, pop star Pepper Heart finds herself at the mercy of the terrifying but sexy enforcer Tony Brando. Tony sets her up to perform at the Bellissimo, his mafia-run casino, until the loan is paid off. She wants to hate him for keeping her under his thumb, but every time they're together, the sparks between them nearly set the casino on fire. Pepper believes Tony is her only threat, but pushing him away may leave her vulnerable to a far greater danger.
