About this item

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Hard Rules, the smoldering, scorching first novel in the explosively sexy new Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

How bad do you want it? The only man within the Brandon empire with a moral compass, Shane Brandon is ready to take his family’s business dealings legitimate. His reckless and ruthless brother, Derek wants to keep Brandon Enterprises cemented in lies, deceit, and corruption. But the harder Shane fights to pull the company back into the light, the darker he has to become. Then he meets Emily Stevens, a woman who not only stirs a voracious sexual need in him, but becomes the only thing anchoring him between good and evil.

Emily is consumed by Shane, pushed sexually in ways she never dreamed of, falling deeper into the all-encompassing passion that is this man. She trusts him. He trusts her, but therein lies the danger. Emily has a secret, the very thing that brought her to him in the first place, and that secret could destroy them both.

This is book ONE of FOUR in Shane and Emily's story.

You mostly ordered.”“I couldn’t let you say no.”“I’m actually really glad you didn’t.”“And yet you say you like being alone?”“It’s simple and without complication.”“Spoken like someone who’s lived the opposite side of the coin.”“Haven’t we all?”“Who burned you, Emily?”I blanch but recover with a quick, “Who says anyone burned me?”“I see it in your eyes.”“Back to my eyes,” I say.“Yes. Back to your eyes.”“Stop looking.”“I can’t.”Those two words sizzle, matching the heat in his eyes, and my throat goes dry. “Then stop asking so many questions.”He reaches up, brushing hair behind my ear, his
