Mistletoe Mobsters and Mozzarella

 Finding a body in the freezer of the family deli isn’t   the way Madonna San Valentino planned to start   her day.

 Adding insult to injury, the investigating detective   is the one guy she’s never been able to forget. After   seven minutes of heaven in the back seat of his car   when they were teenagers, Tony Roma skipped   town without so much as a thanks for the memory.

 Just when Madonna thinks the present situation   can’t get any worse, Tony is ordered to go   undercover at the deli to ferret out a killer. Forced   to work together, she vows to keep their   relationship cool and professional. But with the   sexy, longing looks he tosses her at every turn,   Madonna’s resolve is weakening.

With Christmas drawing closer and Tony’s investigation taking an unexpected turn, Madonna is at her wit’s end. Can she really be falling for him again? And will he wind up leaving her broken hearted and alone like the last time?

Read an Excerpt

I knew those eyes.


When they weren’t filled with anger and pain, like they were right now, I knew how captivating they could be. The palest of blue and heavily lashed, they tilted up a tiny bit at the corners. Jealousy ramped through me. How unfair was it a man was gifted eyes like this when I’d been cursed with the most dull and boring brown color ever blended?

Light hair, a mix of natural honey and wheat husks, straight and clipped short covered his head. Shoulders spanning almost as wide as the doorframe were covered by a dark tan sports jacket, the pants a deeper hue of the same color palette.

“Donna,” Angelo said, his voice thick with fear, “why’d you attack Detective Roma?”

“I didn’t attack…wait? Detective?”

I tried to lick some moisture back into my lips but my salivary glands had gone dormant during the flight or fight response. I glanced at each of the men standing in front me, stopping last on the one Ange had referred to as a detective.

With one hand still cupping his jaw where my knee connected, the man pierced me with his gorgeous gaze and just like I had when I’d been seventeen and climbed into the back seat of his brand new Z8, I lost what little sanity I still had.

“Hey Donna,” Tony Roma said, shaking his head. “Long time and all. I see you’re still as sweet and mild mannered as ever.”

Through her books, she’s created the families she wanted as that lonely child.
