Relentless Aaron

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Welcome to Fool’s Paradise where the women are devious, the men are ruthless, and the raw, undeniable climate of smut dominates. This is Douglass Gilmore’s kingdom, a family business that grew to become one of New York City’s premier adult clubs. But money, power, and seduction makes for an explosive combination—and something dangerous is about to go down…

Or a deliberate attempt to destroy the man behind the curtain? Douglass has won plenty of enemies in the business. Now, with the cops, the FBI, and the mob at his door, everything is on the line…and Douglass has only once chance to defend the family empire—or lose it all.
