I’m a doctor. Mobster. Killer. My hands are covered in filth. I don’t have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.
I distance myself … always remaining obscure, composed, restrained. Careful to never allow my eyes to linger too long. Careful to hide my interest. Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface.
I do it for her—suffer in silence—because it’s what is best for the woman I love. And she has no idea.
She’ll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he’ll earn the right to claim her. Make her his wife. Kill. Me. Slowly.
I’m running out of time. Only a month remains before she’s beyond my reach forever. I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm. I want to give her the kind of nights she will still feel between her legs the next morning. I want us to share the kind of passion that forms on our skin and drips down to saturate the sheets. Between the sweat and the moans and the messy hair, I want her to know how hard she’s been loved.
To have her is to taint her. I should stay away. But I won’t. I can’t. I’m a selfish bastard. A selfish bastard in love.
***Intended for readers ages 18+ due to sexual content, adult situations, and language.
Endurance is a STANDALONE novel. It is the first spinoff of The Fellowship world introduced in The Sin Trilogy: A Necessary Sin, The Next Sin, One Last Sin.
Although Endurance may be read as a standalone, I recommend reading The Sin Trilogy first if you wish to have a full understanding of The Fellowship world. The choice is yours. (An ebook bundle set with all three books is available at a discounted price.)
Each Sin Series Standalone Novel will feature a different couple.
Jen's 5 Star review
I am SO in love with this series!!!!
I spent a week reading the first three books - so of course, my Sunday is dedicated to Jamie and Elli's story :)
These two hit it off from the first time they met - slowly they became friends while treating Leith's gunshot wound together - Jamie learns just how good of a nurse Elli is - those traumas in the ER back in America trained her well.
Now Elli made her decision to stay in Scottland with the Fellowship, Sin and Bleu's babies are born and healthy, it's time Elli finds herself a mate to go through the pain of claiming her so she can become a full on member. And because the Order is still targeting the women of the Fellowships, she needs someone yesterday!
Jamie is a sweetheart - but he's misjudged. Everyone in the Fellowship looks down on him because he is a dr, not a fighter. Even though he's doing the one thing he loves, he believes he's not a strong enough fighter to protect Elli. She is the sister of the daughter in law and wife of the leaders of the Fellowship, which makes her a target in the enemy's eyes.
Will true love be enough for him to believe they can be together? Or should he bow out gracefully and allow a stronger brother to take her hand and claim her so she'll be safe?
It's really a cute story - and totally has me itching to start the next story of this series - Leith and Lornia - but I'm really anxious to read Wes's and Kerian's story it's going to be a lot different than these, so I'm a little nervous :) Sadly I have no idea when the last two book comes out : but I'm on the waiting list, so hopefully I'll find out soon :)
