Sasha Popova buried her pain from walling up her heart against her childhood sweetheart and channeled it into becoming the youngest entrepreneur in her hometown. 

That would be more impressive if the honor wasn't for Stillwind, isolated, picturesque mountain town a full tank of gas roundtrip from the nearest big city. 

She just wants to run her restaurant and volunteer as a firefighter in her scant free time like her father--anything to avoid talking to her childhood friend and her high-school bully. 

But one overheard conversation becomes the catalyst that puts her under the attention of an international criminal trying to set up shop in her quaint little hometown. 

With no other choice, she's forced to work with the very guys that brought so much pain. 

She'll just have to focus on the other men in Stillwind that haven't betrayed her.

The Stillwind Series is a 6-book slow-burn, thriller reverse-harem series that focuses on Sasha Popova and her guys.​

Nothing bad ever happens in Stillwind.


Luckily, she's not fighting this on her own because she'd be lost without all the people on her side.

Release: July 1, 2022

Sasha Popova had to have the worst luck in the world. Secluded in a stagnant, pleasant town high up in the mountains where the biggest crime committed in the last few decades was the teacher caught selling school supplies to fluff their income, the odds of stumbling into the crosshairs of an international crime boss should've been slim to none. 

Slim--but not zero, as she could attest to. Paolo Rossi took an interest in her, and how she doesn't see a way out of the mess she's in without betraying the men that helped her.

Exciting second book to the slow-burn, high plot, reverse-harem series, The Stillwind Series.

Book 4 of the Stillwind Series
With Paolo Rossi handled, for now, Sasha's life should be returning to normal. At least, it should be, but the problem is that the tenuous deal keeping her out of trouble could be revoked at any time. She can't trust it. On top of that, there is still the slight problem of Chief Hannover's murderer knowing who she is and possibly viewing her as a loose end to tie up, even if Rossi is not breathing down her neck at the moment. The Stillwind Police are putting pressure on her for answers that she just can't give. Even Gamma, the secret agency that knows all the details of everything going on, doesn't believe she's entirely innocent. From all directions, Sasha feels like she's in the line of fire.
Without a certain group of guys to back her up, her life would be in shambles.
It's a good thing she has them.
