• obtain by deception.
She was named most appropriately.
Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.
She has never failed.
A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.
Nothing is ever that easy.
Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.
The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.
But at what cost?
From author Bethany-Kris comes a whole new world. A North American network full of criminals battling to stay on top, and painting the streets red in war as they dabble in the game of betrayal. Malicious, cunning, forbidden, and violent—welcome to The Empires and Badlands.

4 Star Review by Brittany
verb (used with or without object)
to cheat, deceive, or trick.
Cozen Taylor is a thief. She makes a living by putting herself in a mark's life, getting what she's contracted to get, then leaving as quietly as she came.
So when the Astor's contract her to steal back a ruby ring, she will stop at nothing to get that and cash out a three hundred million dollar paycheck.
What she didn't expect to find was Sargon Jones, who's the bodyguard for her mark. She didn't expect to fall in love and she definitely didn't expect him to get so close to her.
Once you get past the weird names, this book was actually pretty good. The sex was smoking, that's for sure. And there's a twist that I didn't see coming--I didn't even expect there to be a twist, but there is one. It made me do a double take and be like, "Did I just read that right?"
I also absolutely love the cover of this book, it fits who Cozen is perfectly. This is my first Bethany-Kris novel, and I will continue reading more of her.
Bethany-Kris is a Canadian author, lover of much, and mother to four young sons, one cat, and two dogs. A small town in Eastern Canada where she was born and raised is where she has always called home.
