Criminal Underground Series of Standalones

with Lucy Smoke

The Criminal Underground is a collection of standalones following different crews of criminals meaning the stories can be read separately and in any order. 
This series of standalones contains references involving murder, assault, domestic violence, and other themes that some readers may find triggering.

Sweet Possession

I had a chance, once, to play the good girl. I could’ve kept my mouth shut and stayed out of the line of fire. Had I done that, more people might’ve been hurt. So, I came forward and subsequently, I lost everything I’d ever loved. 

I lost my family. 
I lost my home.
I lost my identity. 
I lost … them. 

But now they’re back. At least, I think they are. I can feel their eyes watching my every movement, stalking me. They aren’t here to threaten me or to hurt me. They’re here to protect me. To watch over me. Because to them, I’m everything they desire. 

I am their love.
I am their hate.
I am their infatuation. 
Their sweet possession. 

How long can they stand to stay in the shadows when a new danger threatens to tear us apart again?

Scarlett Thief

Three pasts. Three criminals. One night to steal it all.

I’m known as the Scarlett Thief. Truly fitting since Scarlett is my name. No one has seen me or ever even gotten close. It’s not bragging, I’m just that good. If I see something and I want it, the fact is, come hell or high thievery, it will be mine. 

There’s just one rule: I work alone. A team comes with complications—dangerous complications that can get a girl killed or, even worse, caught. 

When a mysterious billionaire known as Mr. Black not only gets close enough to catch me but leaves me an intriguing message offering me the chance of a lifetime, what’s a world-renowned criminal to do? Track the man down and kill him, of course. Only, instead of Mr. Black, I find two other criminals —a hacker and a mercenary—who are gunning for the mysterious man in the shadows who seems to know everything about us. 

The only way to keep our secrets from ever seeing the light of day is to pull off the biggest heist the world’s ever seen. If we fail, we lose everything, but if we succeed … we could go down in history.

Sinister Engagement

He was given a choice: my sister or me. 
He chose me.
Gaven Belmonte is one of the most dangerous hitmen in the world, and I’m the daughter of one of the richest mafia families in the country. In exchange for my hand in marriage, Gaven Belmonte is about to become the next head of the Price family. 
I’ve always tried to shun my family’s past and their filthy ties to the underworld of organized crime. I don’t smoke. I don’t drink. I’ve never even had sex. I just want to be free, to be normal. Gaven could do more than just ruin that dream—he could completely annihilate me. 
It doesn’t matter that I’ve been planning to escape my family’s criminal past ever since the murder of my mother. What my father wants, he gets, and it appears the same is true for my new fiancé. He wants me, and he’s about to get me. To have and to hold. Til’ death do we part. 
We’re a match made in hell, but the contract says that he owns me, body and soul, and he intends to make sure I know it.
