“Your mother’s opiates are coming from Jose Herrera’s distribution network.” My pulse races as my stepfather speaks these words. Because taking on the Herreras also means taking on Diego.
Reckless, and hardened by a volatile past, Victoria does not see a future with Diego Herrera as a realistic option. As their childhood friendship ignites, they find themselves on opposite sides of a bloody feud between the two most powerful families in Mexico City. And she’s a Moreno now—brought up to be the secret weapon nobody suspected.
But Victoria can’t deny the attraction. Diego’s commanding muscles, the coarse, dark hair of his solid chest, that rugged scar above his sensuous lips…
Loyalty is in the eye of the beholder.

HARD TRIGGER Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 S.L. Hannah
He smacks the seat with a fist. “Stay away from José. This is not your problem. It’s ours. The Herreras.”
I place the cool water bottle against my neck. “I’m just here to make deals for some sugar transport. For the Morenos.”
Diego lunges towards me, grasping at the straps of my dress. I gasp at his sudden nearness.
“I’m fucking serious, Victoria. José isn’t some malandro with no family, friends, history, or name. He isn’t Teresa.” He lets go. “You should never have gotten involved with…this.”
He grunts and slides me into the corner. His face is as close to mine as it’s ever been without us breaking into a passionate kiss.
“José is the second in command.” He grips my shoulder. “In my family.”
Pressed between the hard leather and Diego’s hard torso, I can’t decide whether this is an invitation to fight him or fuck him.
My breathing hastens.
“That’s not what I heard,” I tell him. “I heard he lost that position, which is why he’s turned against your family.”
Diego tugs again at my dress straps, his knuckles digging into my chest, until one of them breaks.
“They will kill you, eventually,” he urges. “You know this.”
I attempt to create some space, but my struggles just intertwine us more.
His hand wanders into my hair and breaks loose the band holding the knot. I breathe in the familiar musky scent of his neck as his face burrows in the dark-brown waves.
“Do you understand me?” he pleads. “They will do it without checking in with me. They will do it despite what I say or do to defend you. And once they decide, they will do it so swiftly, you won’t have a chance to reach for your weapon of choice—like tonight. You won’t be able to outmaneuver or outthink. You will just be dead.”
The seam of the seat digs into me, my emotions hanging off the edge of a cliff. My hand fumbles for balance until it lands on the thick, hard outline of his cock. A jolt of heat shoots through me.
Diego reaches around my ass and slides me further underneath him.
I lock my thighs around him, the dress tearing further as the SUV continues to rumble. He pulls down the top of my dress, exposing a round breast. My nipple is already pert in anticipation of his hot breath and flicking tongue.
When he performs just that, my hips circle beneath him. My moan is no longer silent. His stiff cock grinds into the last few layers of fabric between us as he sucks fervently at my nipple and I twist a lock of his hair between my fingers. The muscles of his back ripple as he pulls me tighter into him, trying to mold us into one. My pussy pulses to the rhythm of his insistence.
He looks up with his big, dark eyes, trying to figure out how to quell a storm he can’t control. His thumb draws across my lips.

Book #3 in the Wallflower Series. Not a Standalone. Must be read in order.
Rated mature for sexual content and language.
In his work as a defense attorney in Baltimore, Thorne has always been noble to a fault–specializing in helping young people in trouble just as someone did for him when he was younger. He plays the part of the bachelor well, but he secretly holds a flame for his best friend and business partner, Gwyn Weaver, a woman struggling to overcome her own demons. After four years, he thinks he might finally be ready to confess his feelings, come what may.
But his plans are derailed when he wakes up in bed with a dead woman–her blood on his hands and no recollection of how he got there. Whoever is trying to frame Thorne is about to lead him down the rabbit hole of his past, something he thought he had outran long ago. Thorne must figure out who has been digging into his secrets, how much they know, and how far they will go to bring him down . . .
Death is Not Enough is an exciting and fast paced romantic suspense. While this book is part of a series, I do think that it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
From the moment I picked up this book, I was completely intrigued by Thorne and his past. His story is heartbreaking and will really tug at your heart. He’s overcome a lot throughout the years, but he doesn’t let very many people in, keeping his walls sky high. But, if there ever was a person who could break down his walls, it would be Gwyn. Thorne has always had feelings for Gwyn, but has always kept those feelings to himself. But, what he doesn’t realize is that Gwyn has feelings for him as well….Gwyn has had a hard life as well. She’s finally at the point where she’s ready to start fresh and go after what she wants. So, when Thorne’s life gets turning upside down once again, Gwyn will stop at nothing to help solve the mystery and clear Thorne’s name…
Death is Not Enough is a fast paced and thrilling read. I was hooked from the very first page and was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time. I loved all the mystery and intrigue that surrounded the story. I really liked the way the author laid things out and the clues she dropped along the way. Almost immediately, you are given the villains point of view and while you know who the villain is, you don’t know what his agenda is or why he’s doing what he’s doing. And don’t let the fact that you know who the villain is fool you, I promise you there are a lot of terrific twists and turns along the way.
Death is Not Enough is definitely filled with a ton of suspense and action, but there’s also some romance to it to. One of things that I really enjoyed was that there was a really good balance to all the elements. So, while there was romance and some sexy good times, it was the 100% focus of the story. It was the lightness that this intense story needed.
Death is Not Enough is my first book by this author and it most definitely will not be my last. This story was so incredibly fast paced that I’m still having a hard time believing that it was 600+ pages. I mean I devoured this book in just a day and a half–that’s like a record for me for a book this big!! I just really loved the pacing and the writing style. It was super easy to get caught up in this story and get lost in the characters. It was a thrilling ride from beginning to end with danger and mystery around every corner.
