Nastasia Leokov has loved her brother’s best friend since the very moment she met him. Understanding that she’ll never be anything more to Viktor Nikulin than a treasure to guard, Nas sensibly hides her feelings. But when she makes a brash decision to kiss him, everything changes.

That kiss. That hot, explosive, all-consuming kiss.
It haunts Vik. And suddenly, Nastasia Leokov isn’t just a teenage mob princess.
No.
She is his. Undeniably. Indisputably.

An unbreakable connection. A hidden relationship. A lifetime of firsts.

And yet, something is missing.
Nas desperately craves the one thing Vik has never offered her.
His heart.

EXCERPT

I was tired. I was restless. I was irritated.

The trifecta of bitchiness.
So, when I saw him sitting at a table by himself, I stilled midstep, and my annoyance grew.

Seriously?
Why, God?

How dare he look so good when I could barely find matching shoes this morning.
He brought his espresso up to his lips as he read from the newspaper he held in his hands. I didn’t know why that got to me. Maybe because he looked so effortlessly relaxed, and my fragmented mind was being split in a flurry of puzzle pieces, none of which fit back into their original spaces.
My body rigid, my feet started moving, and they didn’t stop until I stood in front of him with a cold expression that could’ve set off the next big freeze. Before he even looked up at me, I hissed quietly, “This is my spot.”
Vik simply peered up at me with a furrowed brow. “No, it isn’t.”
Uh, excuse me? “Yes, it is. This is my spot. My café. You go get your own.”
And his grin had my heart racing with anger. “Firstly, I brought you here, so if we’re getting technical, you wouldn’t even know about this place if it weren’t for me.”
My neck flushed.
Oh, right. I’d forgotten about that.
Feeling stupid, I huffed out a short breath, threw up my hands, and said, “Fine. I’ll leave.”
As I turned to walk away, Vik’s hand shot out and gently but firmly circled my wrist. I twisted back to find his gaze had darkened some, and he uttered, “Stay.”
It wasn’t a plea nor a demand. I might’ve been delusional, but to my ears, it sounded like a wish.
My rigid stance loosened mildly.
Only one word out of his mouth, but I felt the caress of it all over.
I peered down at that hand. It held me firmly as his obsidian gaze locked me in. “I heard you’ve been spending time at Laredo’s. I know you’re smarter than to try to get the attention of a particular Frenchman, so I won’t warn you against it.” Those eyes sliced over the length of me. “You know better, don’t you, baby?”
Every fiber of my being screamed to sit and stay, but the insecure part of me told me to leave before we hurt each other. Against my better judgement, I sat opposite him, and because I often had trouble keeping my mouth shut, I said smugly, “Sounds like you might be jealous.”
The hand on my wrist flexed, and Vik held me down with his glacial gaze. “Wanna test that theory?”
My chest squeezed.
My ego was a petty bitch and hooted loudly, all for it. My heart thought nothing would be more romantic. But my brain, on the other hand, knew what Vik plus jealousy was capable of. And it wasn’t pretty.
Don’t get me wrong. I was never the target of his anger when he got like that. The men standing in his warpath, however, usually ended up with a split lip, a broken nose, or a concussion, or all three. And after it was all done and dusted, Vik would then take me home, take my mouth, and then take me roughly against the nearest surface, all while maintaining eye contact.
Ugh. It was so fucking hot.
The memory had my knees snapping together under that table, trying in vain to ignore the thrumming warmth that suddenly lit in my core.

Hmmm. Maybe we should test that theory after all.

No.

But—

Not a good idea.
My inner self pouted and called me a prude.
Not so smug anymore, I cleared my throat and asked, “What do you want from me, Vik?”
Refusing to let go, his thumb gently caressed the sensitive spot at my inner wrist, and without hesitation, he responded one word that shattered my resolve.
“Everything.”
The way he said it, with zero hesitation, had my heart aching. I wanted that too. If only the stakes were even. If only he had as much to lose as I did. My heart was on the line. I wasn’t sure if Vik even knew how to access his.

There is only one woman in the world who could melt this grumpy billionaire’s heart… and she just happens to be his wife.

They call me the Beast of the Bosporus. Fierce, mean, and cruel. They aren’t wrong.

It will take all my will to deny what I know when I look at her.
That we were fated, right from the start.

Olivia
Fulfilling my duty to my father’s memory didn’t seem the worst thing in the world.
For my parents, arranged marriages were common.
I had no idea that it would be to the coldest and most arrogant man in the city.
Now, Emre thinks he can control me and forget about me.
But I know I affect him more than he wants, and I’ll use it every way I can.
I have a suspicion that my husband isn’t quite the monster he wants everyone to believe.
I have a feeling that there’s a real man under his gruff exterior, and I want to know him.
I won’t let him go, without a fight.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS


ANA BALEN 



Ana Balen was born in Zagreb, Croatia, where she still lives with her husband, their son (read boss!) and the son’s pet rabbit named Shhh! (or some other gibberish that’s the favorite of their son for the day.)

She spends her days driving her husband up the wall (when he can’t get her ass up from the bed in the mornings), reading and daydreaming, or following orders from a three-year-old. In the hectic life she leads (and loves every second of it), she never thought about writing. But, then one day a name popped in her head, then, the snippets of things, and she sat down and started typing. Next thing, she wrote a book. And now, she’s about to release her seventh!





ALLORA RYAN 




Hi, I’m Allora, and if you haven’t noticed already, I am a romance author! I am new to the book world and Unexpected is my first book and it’s co-written with author Ana Balen. I come from the north side of Dublin’s Inner city, I have children and I enjoy long walks on the beach where I get a lot of ideas for my stories. Thanks for visiting!

Except the night before my birthday, he did the unthinkable, and now I’m not sure I know how to forgive him.
All I know is, I refuse to be anyone’s dirty little secret.

Are you interested in participating in a stranger photo session? It’s a fun way to meet someone new and take part in a unique experience. If you are single and in the Denver area, please fill out the form below. I will pair people as I see fit. All sessions will be free. I will post pictures from each shoot on social media. Each stranger session is different and will depend on the pair.
Maybe your soul mate is just a look away.
~Post on Ellie Banks’ social media

JAMESON

While other people my age are getting married and having kids, I just have my job and my dad. I don’t need more than that. Still, I’ve never been one to turn down a new experience and sign up for one of those stranger shoots I keep seeing everywhere. I don’t know the photographer and I don’t really care. It’ll be a better way to spend a little time than at the construction site or at home.

When I turn around, I’m met with an angel. I want to shower her with all the cheesy pick-up lines I know, but they won’t work on a girl like her. Lucky me, she feels the same way I do—like fate is giving us the chance we both need. Suddenly, the worst day of the week is my new obsession.

When I go to Dad’s house for dinner, I think it’s the perfect time to tell him I’ve met the love of my life. I’m not expecting to see Monday there or to find out I have a new stepmom. If anyone thinks that’s going to stop me from making Monday mine, they’re wrong.

MONDAY

I’m used to making my clients happy all day, a smile on my face and a sunny attitude. I’m not faking it, but I feel like I can do more, be more. I want to do so much more with my career as a make-up artist than brides and prom looks. I love the makeovers where I can show a woman how special she is, but my dream is editorials. I want to make make-up into art, true art that’s appreciated.

It might be self-serving, but that’s why I signed up for the photography session with Ellie Banks. I know if I can talk to her then I could make a connection…and maybe an opportunity.

I wasn’t expecting to be paired with Jameson. He’s got bad boy written all over him, but I know there’s something deeper there too. I want to find out what it is. I want to be his; it feels right. I don’t know what to do with the little fact that our parents are getting married, even though we had no idea. I might not know, but Jameson does.

If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. My Stranger Shoot Series are novellas that take place within the Denver Family world but is not part of the main timeline. Each book can be read as a standalone. Don’t be surprised to see characters from the Denver Family, other than Ellie, pop in.

SHERIDAN

I love my mama, but she did me wrong by giving me the name of an old lady. I have enough in my life to make me feel far beyond my 24 years, like having an eight-year-old daughter, and my name isn’t helping. I’ve fought hard to be the best single mom I can be. I’ve sacrificed so much, and I don’t regret a single thing.

That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have a little fun and meet someone my own age. Sounds like a dream to me. That’s why I sign up to do a stranger photo session. I’m surprised when I turn around and see Crawford because, even for an older man, he does it for me. In a big way. There’s something between us I would give almost anything to explore.

I think there’s a spark, but he walks away without looking back. Fate’s not done with us, though, and I don’t think he’ll be able to resist me a second time.

CRAWFORD

When you move to a new city it’s hard to get into the groove of things. Denver is the biggest city I’ve lived in, but I’m motivated to take on my new job and make the school better for the teachers and the kids. Elementary school is a new one for me, but I’m up for the challenge.

Moving and not knowing anyone could make anyone lonely. That’s why I apply for some photo thing on a whim. Why not? Right?

Turning around and seeing Sheridan makes all that loneliness disappear, but she’s 18 years younger than me. I don’t think that’s a gap we can build a bridge over. Walking away is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I must push her out of my mind and move on with my life.

When we meet again through circumstance, I won’t be able to walk away again. I’m a man who is only so strong. She’s mine and this time I’ll prove it to her.

If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA.

LUCAS

When you’re starting your life over again, you go back to what you know. For me, that’s Denver. I thought I’d left this city behind, convinced I was on to bigger and better things. One second, one wrong step, and everything came crashing down. People pretend to rally around me, but it’s all fake as hell.

That’s why I signed up to do the stranger session. I needed to shake things up, do something new and maybe meet a pretty face at the same time.

I wasn’t expecting to turn around and see someone I recognized. We might have gone to high school together, but we’re still strangers. Then and now. How do I show a girl who knew my reputation back then I’m a different person now?

ALINA

I’m finally free of what I used to be. It’s a great feeling. I’m exactly who I want to be, who I knew I always was, but I had to fight hard to leave the nerdy bookworm behind. I’m finally the butterfly and I want to show it to the world. That’s why getting a free photography session was right up my alley; the fact that it would be with a stranger didn’t faze me at all.

I wish I’d turned around and saw a stranger. I might not know him, but I remember him. He was that guy in school. You know the one.

He says he’s changed. He says a lot of things. Does he really think I’m his? Can you fall in love with someone so easily? It feels real. The best way to test it, I guess, is to go back to where it all began.
