Publisher's Summary

My brother got mixed up with a crime lord and lost everything he had, including his life.

And now I have to pay his debt.

All I have is 20 bucks in my pocket and the clothes on my back. The bank took the house, and my last living relative was murdered. Knuckles threatened to torture me if I ran. He's counting down the days until he'll claim me...making me treasure my final days of freedom.

But I'm not going to wait around. I'm running like hell.

To Milan. 

The greatest lingerie designer in the world is looking for new talent for Barsetti Lingerie. I'm not exactly model material, but maybe I can get a job doing something...and get paid under the table.

But when I meet the infamous Conway Barsetti, he has other plans for me.

Did I just run away from one monster into the arms of another?

WOW.. WOW.. WOW THE NEXT GEN OF BARSETTIS ARE HERE

I thought I’d said a sad farewell to Button and Crow’s world.. but thankfully this favorite author of mine has lured me back in with a story about their son Conway and his cousin Carter from Cane and Adeline.. and I’m one happy happy bunny right now knowing this is going to be a long 9 book series with a book being released each month.. and I can’t wait.

Thanks to her now dead brother, Sapphire is on the run from an evil Crime Lord called Knuckles, she’s had to flee the US, she’s living on the streets of Milan and she needs a job desperately. She’s seen an ad for lingerie models.. however Sapphire knows nothing about the modelling world but she’s willing to do just about any job that brings in cash.. sweeping floors, cutting fabrics, sewing.. anything. But Sapphire’s world changes when she gets picked as a potential model for Top Lingerie Designer/Guru Conway Barsetti and when the sexy, brooding, bad boy of the fashion world sees her he becomes focused on her, inspired by her and drawn to her.. his Muse.

This starts a compelling story where seismic chemistry, feisty banter and mutual attraction is cut short when Sapphire gets caught up in a slave ring and it’s left to Conway Barsetti to save his Muse.. and, when an obscene amount of cash changes hands, Sapphire becomes his.. his willing grateful slave, his tempting plaything and his biggest threat. Because it isn’t long before this beautiful feisty woman stirs up new emotions in Conway.. that of jealousy, possessiveness, protectiveness and him actually caring about her welfare. Their story’s just beginning, Sapphire’s virginal sexual awakening has begun, the rebuffed and dangerous Crime Lord is pissed off.. and Conway’s emotional walls are beginning to crumble.

Well I didn’t get much sleep last night.. but I’m not complaining.. no indeedee.. why you may ask? - well I was totally lost in a world that’d drawn me in before with Buttons and Crow’s amazing dark trilogy where rich alpha men own, dictate, push boundaries and get themselves tangled up with feisty strong women who don’t massage their egos, don’t worship the ground they walk on and don’t settle for being just another conquest. Already this 9 book series has the potential to rock my world, be epic and consume my thoughts.. and the building emotional vibes, the dark looming danger and the smouldering embers leaking from its chapters scream “you ain’t seen nothing yet”. So all I can do is watch and wait for the next book in this potentially awesome series to become available, to snatch it up, to eagerly consume it in one sitting.. and then to rinse and repeat the following month. And the next audiobook is scheduled for release on 26th June.. yay my birthday and a delicious treat just for me.

Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.. Penelope Sky is a gifted author who knows how to pace a story, how to world-build with descriptive scenes, how to build and layer a storyline and she knows how to write sensual dark anti-heroes who steal your breath, stir your emotions, have you swooning with their words and actions and leave you breathless. She has woven a delicious plot around an intimidating, mega-rich, controlling, powerful man and his stubborn fearless sassy Muse who may be down on her luck but she’s far from broken.. she inspires him and he builds her confidence up so she can shine.. but it can only be for him. Dual POV and a great pair of narrators whose vocal talents brought this story to life, made it thoroughly entertaining and made it a very creditworthy story.

Smoking hot

This book, like all of Ms. Sky's books are just amazing. I love the story lines and the characters are thought out nicely. Muse is just a continuation of the previous books only this time the children are all grown up. Love the steamy love scenes and just the way the story is woven together. This series has nine books so far and I hope audible continues to get them all. I hate listening to a book, but can't get the audible version because its not available.

Great job Ms Sky. The narrators were wonderful.
