Love on the Rocks 4:Tequila Sunrise

By: Dixie Lynn Dwyer

Pina has a deep, dark secret that has her holding onto her virtue as well as her heart. There hasn’t been a man yet that can make her forget the past and move on to intimacy and a trusting relationship. She’s fine with that. She’s well-trained in martial arts, can handle a gun just fine, and is a successful CFO of a small company.

Dominant men on power trips she handles like second nature—until she meets the Mondave brothers. They affect her like no others have, but she’s put up a wall for far too long and it will take more than a few tequila sunrises to let down her guard and trust them.

The Mondave men are a force to be reckoned with, and once they set their eyes on Pina Leonie, there's no other man who will get in their way to winning her heart.

When Pina becomes the focus of some ruthless killer criminals, it will take a special kind of negotiating to break down Pina's defenses and prove they’re the men of her dreams—even when they discover her deep, dark secret.


Dear readers,

Thank you for purchasing this legal copy of Tequila Sunrise.

Pina has been through a traumatic time in her life. It’s made her a survivor, and also made her stronger. Now well-trained in self-defense, the use of guns, and martial arts, she feels she is prepared to take on any individual who would attempt to do her harm.

She’s a workaholic, refuses to trust any man because of an incident form her past, and definitely doesn’t know how to let her defenses down.

Pina is doing just fine, maybe a little lonely, but other than that, life seems perfect. Then she meets the Mondave men, and all that training, all the years of practice keeping her heart, her soul, and her virgin body under lock and key, is challenged. She found her weakness: the Mondave men.

She also gained the interest of men out to hurt her. To bring back a secret from her past that could ruin her chances with the Mondave brothers, and ultimately cost her, her life.

May you enjoy her story.

Happy reading.



Chapter 1

“There are other ways to pay off your brother’s debt,” Jordene Mokolovic said to Pina Leonie.

She swallowed hard as he caressed his knuckles down her arm.

“I don’t understand,” she whispered, shaking in her high heels. It was senior week, and she would be graduating from high school then off to college. Instead of continuing to party with her friends, she’d been forced out of the dance club and into the parking lot to discuss “business” with Jordene.

He stepped closer, closing the space between them. She feared this man after months of giving him money or her parents’ scrounging for all they had to pay off Brian’s debt. It made her hate her brother for the burden he’d put upon his family.

Reaching up, Jordene stroked her jaw. She smelled the cologne, the scent of cigar on his fingertips as they touched her skin. She stared up into his dark black eyes and knew he was an evil son of a bitch. A man no one could trust. A criminal, a chauvinistic, narcissistic pig she wished she’d never met or become indebted to.

His attitude, gall, was all street thug. She’d made the mistake of asking around about his boss, this L.R. guy, and had been told to never bring up his name and to avoid the man at all costs. Too late for that. Her brother was a criminal, too, and now she and her parents suffered.

“I’m going to explain this deal I’m willing to make with you because you’re so sweet and I know how hard you’ve been working.” He stroked her cheek with his knuckles. She turned away, and when she glanced back at him, he eyed her breasts and arms. “It shows, baby, and I think we can come to an agreement as you pay off the debt.”

“I gave you all the money I’ve been making, and my parents have scrounged for what they have, too. We can’t give you more. It was Brian’s debt anyway. Why do we need to pay it?”

He pulled her close, making her gasp. She gripped his arms, and his hand gripped her waist and squeezed. He held her so tight she could hardly catch a breath.

She was petrified, instantly shaking.

He inhaled deeply against her neck, and she felt the tears fill her eyes.

“Fuck, you smell so good.” He licked his lips, and she tried pushing him away. He pressed her against the wall, making her head hit the bricks.
