Dirty Little War
By C. K. Martin
In the criminal underworld of London, forbidden love can lead to mutual destruction
In the dark heart of the city, a dirty little war is about to begin
Evie Baedeker knows her place in the world. Born into a life of organised crime in the gritty East End of London, she has endured nothing but hardship and disappointment. Then one night, in a sleazy bar, fate sends a dangerous opportunity her way. Carmen Trogan, daughter and heir apparent to a rival business, has no idea who Evie is when their eyes meet across the dance floor. But Evie knows all about her. The chance to bring the rich and beautiful woman to her knees – both figuratively and literally – is too good to pass up. Sparks fly from their first kiss, but Evie is playing a dangerous game. There are consequences that come with spending the night with a woman like Carmen. Will she be able to walk away from the best night of her life, or will she risk it all to see Carmen one more time? Dirty Little War is a lesbian romance that crosses class and cultural divides.
