“Puerto Rico?” I held my throat. “What the hell was he doing in Puerto Rico? And what did you pick him up for? He wasn’t...” I closed my eyes and didn’t bother defending a man who committed hundreds of crimes, all at my father’s direction.

“We think he didn’t realize that was a U.S. Territory.”

I couldn’t help laughing through my fury. “And?”

“He told us where your father is. But... We can’t touch him. You didn’t mention he was sick.”

“He didn’t want anyone to know.” I dragged in a breath. “And my mother?”

“Very healthy from what our surveillance team showed us. Taking care of your father.”

With this drug situation out of the way, I could at least let them have a phone again. One Giancarlo could secure for me. “She loves my father. I did what I did for her.”

“I don’t doubt it.” He brushed his hand across my cheek. “You’re too good for this world, Rebecca.”

“I’m gonna do all I can to make it better. One day at a time.”

“Good girl,” he whispered.

Lust fired through my blood, and I kissed him. Softly on the lips. His hands gripped my waist and he breathed me in. His eyes filled with desire as he deepened the kiss.

“Rebecca?” Sebastien’s voice from my front door stilled me.

Julian’s eyes went wide, and he let me go. “Sebastien Daria?”

I exhaled. “You better go.”

“What are you doing?” Sebastien came up behind me.

I jumped, putting my arms out. “It’s not what you think.”

“What do I think it is?” He looked over my shoulder and pinched his eyes.

I spun around.

Julian was gone.

Fucking Feds. They’re good.

“I don’t want there to be secrets between us, Sebastien. But that was my...source. Who told me about Sunrise. I want to keep his identity a secret. Are you okay with that?”

“Him?”

“Yes, him.” I sunk under his arm. The memory of how he protected me when we were teenagers was no longer a memory I pushed away.

“Let’s get you back in the house.” He steered me into my vestibule.

Inside my kitchen, Sebastien handed me another iPad and brought up the full termination agreement. “It just needs your signature, Becca.”

“Getting technically sophisticated, huh?” I took the stylus tucked into the pocket at the bottom and signed my name.

I smiled, seeing the other signatures.





Anthony Messina Sr.

Richard Daria

Patrick Byrne





Handing the iPad back to Sebastien, he kissed me, slow and deep, holding me at the waist. “I love you,” he whispered, even though he didn’t need to. Everything was out in the open.

“I love you.” I breathed in his cologne, warmth spreading through my chest.

“My turn,” Anthony said, pulling me into his arms and roughly kissed me. “I love you too. When do we fuck again? All of us.”

“You really are an animal, Messina,” Gian said, filling Sebastien’s champagne flute.

“Say the word, Byrne and I’ll show you just how much of a beast I can be.” Anthony grabbed his package.

“I belong to all three of you.” I would have my hands full with these spoiled princes all trying to out-alpha each other. “No fighting!”

But I truly loved all of them and for very different reasons.

One by one, I adored them each with my mouth.

I kissed Gian first, who I loved for his quiet power and the chance he took to bring me out of the darkness. He brought a side of me to the surface, a woman I wanted to be because I felt so strong even when he spanked me. I fulfilled needs in him that had gone unmet for the longest time as well.

Next, I kissed Anthony, who grabbed my ass. I loved him for letting down his guard and opening his heart to the idea he could love his wife. If that wife was me.

Finally, Sebastien, my first love. The man I never got over. I learned what love was by loving him. Being the youngest, I’d felt there was little love left for me in my family. Sebastien filled that longing. I had unresolved anger still brewing over how he could break up with me and not even warn me. But we were young back then. And it made little sense to keep looking back.

Looking forward was the plan.

Killing the Sunrise deal was the first hurdle I’d face as Queen of New York. Danger lurked in every corner. I had a kick-ass security system, two bodyguards, and three princes getting naked, ready to fuck me and make me climax until I couldn’t see.

To say I had it all was a massive understatement.

Keepingit all was my next challenge ...
