Please don’t die. Please don’t die. Please don’t die.
Leo heard the frantic whisper over and over in his head. She begged him to stay alive, and he couldn’t very well disappoint her by dying.
Someone tried to kill Leo, heir to the Costa family. Call it luck, call it a miracle, or simply say it wasn’t his time, but Leo survived thanks to Freya. Those who tried to kill him were dealt with, swiftly and painfully, but there was someone else controlling the rats, someone close to the family.
Leo had an enemy to eliminate, but when fate throws Freya back in his path, he knew he wasn’t letting go. She saved his life, and it was his duty to protect her.
Her only alibi was Leo. She couldn’t remember what happened, but she knew there was no way she would have anything to do with the missing man. Right?
She had no choice but to depend on Leo and play the role of a happy fiancé, even if it’s temporary-very temporary. But when bullets start flying, Freya knew there was more to Leo and his family than meets the eye. Would she survive their fake engagement?
About the author…
In 6th grade I wanted to be a singer. In high school I wanted to be a lawyer, an astronaut and then a house wife when I thought I was going to marry my high school sweetheart. Then I wanted to be a pilot but found out I was too short to fly. So I decided to become a photographer. When that didn’t work out, I decided to be a writer.
Review for Set the City on Fire…
Once again Sophia Peony captivates me with her wonderful creations! Her new story ‘Set the City on Fire’ is a story so hot that I had to take a moment (or three) to compose myself. Her characters, Leo and Freya have chemistry that goes beyond the norm. He’s a mobster, domineering and controlling. She is spends most of her time either working or staying at home, completely innocent to the darker world around her. But saving Leo from impending death, is her door into this new world. I liked the slow burn of the story, the character shaping, and (of course) the happy ending. Another great read from Sophia Peony, for the win!
