Richer Than Sin (Sin Trilogy #1)

About This Book





A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff man worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. And we burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.






Prologue





Lincoln





“I object.”

Every head in the entire congregation swung toward the double doors I’d flung open.

My vision was fuzzy, no doubt from the two fifths of Scotch I’d used to try to drown out the fact that she was marrying someone else today.

Because a Gable and a Riscoff could never be together.

But that didn’t mean I was going to watch Whitney Gable marry someone else and not say a goddamned word.

“You asshole. How dare you?” Whitney was dressed in white, looking like the perfect bride, aside from the militant look on her face as she stomped down the aisle toward me.

I might have miscalculated in my drunken haze.

“You can’t marry him.” I was pretty sure my words slurred, but I didn’t care.

“I don’t know why you think you get to have an opinion, but get the hell out of here.”

“I can buy and sell him.” More slurring.

Whitney’s eyes burned with anger. “I. Don’t. Care. Because you can’t buy me.”

Two sets of arms grabbed me from behind and dragged me back toward the doors.

“Don’t do this—” My words were cut off as I was shoved down the front steps of the church.

“If you ever look at my sister again, I will fucking kill you myself. I don’t care how much fucking money your family has.” Whitney’s brother loomed over me, and I didn’t doubt his promise, especially not while he was wearing his army dress uniform and green beret.

Next to him was the groom. The man who’d sold Whitney the biggest crock of shit I’d ever heard in my life. I’d told myself there was no way she’d ever go through with it. No way her brother would let her.

I was wrong. He’d let her marry anyone but a Riscoff.

The groom smirked but said nothing, then they both turned and marched up the steps.

If I weren’t so fucking wasted, I’d go back in and try again.

He might be marrying her today, but I wasn’t done with Whitney Gable.

I’d never be done with her.

Lincoln





Ten years later – Present day





“Time to shit or get off the pot, boy. You can’t keep her dangling after you forever. I’m not getting any younger, and you need to get started on the next generation. The Riscoff line must continue, and I’m sick of waiting.”

My grandfather offers his unsolicited advice as my phone vibrates with a text on the table between us. We’re having our regular morning meeting on his deck overlooking the gorge and the river.

“This isn’t relevant to the conversation at hand.” I slide my phone off the table and slip it into my pocket. Ignoring the message from the woman I’ve been seeing occasionally for the last few months, I flip open a file with a stack of documents needing Commodore’s signature.

Business comes first. Last. Always. That’s the Riscoff family way.

Any woman who spends time around me knows it, and that these meetings with my grandfather are sacrosanct. I may be the heir apparent to a multibillion-dollar empire, but Commodore still officially holds the reins, and every decision I make has to be signed off on by him. Does it drive me fucking crazy? Yes. Do I have a choice? No, because that’s family tradition. We preserve and protect the legacy at all costs. That’s part of being the Riscoff heir.

“What is relevant, however, is you signing these documents so we can close the deal on these contract negotiations and make us another few hundred million before the end of the year.”

I push the stack of resolutions in front of him and hold them down as the wind whipping off the river causes the pages to flap, threatening to carry them away. It was more convenient when he lived at the family estate, but that ended when he accused my mother of trying to poison him two years ago and moved out to this cabin overlooking the river. Now I have to haul my ass out here every day, over ten miles of winding roads up through the mountains, with shitty cell service.

Part of me wonders if he decided to buy this place because Magnus Gable, his lifelong sworn enemy, bought the falling-down place next door, and Commodore wanted to keep an eye on him.

Keep your enemies close. Commodore is Machiavellian enough that I wouldn’t put anything past him.

I still don’t know what to think about whether my mother was trying to poison him. Would she try to hasten his demise to force the company holdings to be passed down? I should be able to say no with certainty, and the fact that I can’t says a lot about my family, and none of it good.
