Between Love and Loyalty Synopsis:
When at war, aim for the heart…
Connor Duffy is desperate. His tell-all book on corrupt Chicago alderman Brady Cavanagh isn’t telling enough to get publisher interest, and in order to get the hot dirt, he must find a way to get closer to the man who let Connor go to prison to cover for his own son’s misdeeds. So when fate puts Cavanagh’s lively, artsy daughter across Connor’s path, he decides to take advantage of the first bit of good luck he’s had in a long while.
… but don’t forget to keep your own under guard.
Fiona Cavanagh needs a break. Between assisting with her father’s political campaign, trying to please her unpleasable mother, and dealing with an ex who won’t go away, she has no time for a life of her own. One night she meets sexy and mysterious Connor and everything looks like it’s about to finally turn around… until she discovers that the one man she thought she could love was using her for her father’s power, just like all the others. As dark family secrets unravel around her, Fiona finds herself caught between love… and loyalty.

He sat at the bar and waited for Dermott to be free. A good-sized crowd filled the bar, but
not enough to warrant having an extra bartender on duty. Dermott poured him a Guinness
without asking and Connor nodded his thanks.
With the first sip, he knew it wouldn’t be a strong enough. “Get me a shot,” he called out.
Dermott poured and leaned against the bar when he delivered it. “What’s the problem?”
Dermott poured himself water and waited.
“Fiona’s in love with me.”
“Did she tell you that?”
Connor shook his head. “Didn’t need to.”
“That ought to be worth some leverage, huh? To get information on her daddy.””
He slugged back the shot and chased it with a drink of beer. “Thing is, I don’t want the
leverage anymore. She’s not like the rest of them.”
“You sure? They’re a wily bunch.”
“Yeah, I’m sure.” He turned the glass of beer in his hand. “What do I do?”
“If she’s clean, then leave her be. Find some other way to make your story happen.”
Story. He hadn’t thought about his book. Even when he poked around Fiona’s condo
looking for information, or scrolled through stories on the Internet, it felt half-hearted. He’d
expended so much energy to keep his secrets, there’d been little left for writing.
“You can’t give up. The Cavanaghs should be exposed for the shit they do. For what
they’ve always done. They act like they’re better than everyone.”
Connor’s stomach tumbled. He didn’t want to disappoint Dermott, but the book wasn’t
going to happen. He was finally ready to move on. Dermott just wasn’t aware yet. He turned his
glass in a slow circle. “No one can touch the Cavanaghs. If I’ve learned nothing else over the
years, it’s that.”
“But you can. You can show them they’re touchable.”
“I don’t think I want to. It’s not worth it. They’re better at this game than I am.” And
Fiona would be crushed in the middle.
“After all the work and effort, you’re going to walk away as if none of it matters?”
Connor sipped from his beer, glancing at Dermott over the rim. He never understood why
this was so important to Dermott. The Cavanaghs hadn’t done anything to him directly. He still
had the ability to live whatever life he wanted.
Now was the first time Connor felt like he had the same chance.
“Shit, boy. What the hell?”
Connor set down the beer and looked at Dermott, confused.
“You’re in love with her.”
Love? “I didn’t say that.”
“No, but you got a stupid puppy dog look on your face.”
