Blurb
They’re the Vendetti crime familia, the most powerful mafia
name in New York…
Matteo Vendetti is a man who gets what he wants. As heir to
the Vendetti Empire and the capo dei capi’s throne, he’s only required to
do one thing. He must get married to prove that he’s matured and is stable
enough to take over. The stipulation doesn’t sound like much of a
challenge until he realizes who his betrothed is. Violet’s the Bottaro
Princessa, not just a random woman he met by chance in another
country. 
She’s young—too young by his standards. 
She’s headstrong—a problem for a dominant man like
Matteo. 
She’s desirable—the biggest issue of all. 
Before long, Matteo’s questioning himself, wondering if
Violet’s really such a burden, or if just maybe, he’s falling in love with
something other than the Empire.
Warning – This book is EXTREMELY STEAMY! Be prepared with
wine and a fan!

Early Review
“WOW! Matteo and his brothers are HOT! By the time you finish
The Vendetti Empire you’re not going to know which one you love the most. I’ll
happily take them all!” – Victoria Ashley,
New York Times Bestselling Author
Excerpt
Her gaze flicks at me curiously, no doubt wondering what I’m
in for and how I got to be the one in line to marry Matteo in the first place.
His bloodline is practically Italian royalty, and I’m not from their part of
Italy. If we were home, I wouldn’t be considered “good enough” for him, and I’d
more than likely be his throwaway whore than his wife. I don’t know how my
father pulled it off, either. Sure, we’re part of the five influential families
in Chicago, but marrying the boss of bosses in New York is a damn big deal in
our world. My papa no doubt had some favors in his back pocket he called
in.  
I also can’t help but wonder, who could want us dead that
badly for him to show his hand to the Vendettis?

Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2018

 

 
Ivy
 
When I stumbled into a mafia run club seeking a job, I was looking for protection. Little did I know I’d need protection from him.
 
Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended.
 
He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.
 
So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.
 
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ve learned to do what’s necessary to survive in this world, and that includes marrying a mobster. Regardless of what he might say, it’s only temporary.
 
It’s not like I’m going to sleep with him. Or fall for him.
 
Because that would be stupid, right?

blog_review
Interesting book. I really enjoyed the plot. Due to a curse years ago, a daughter, Helena, is chosen from one family to go live with the rival family, Sebastian’s. Neither wants it to happen but it does. I liked Sebastian, I think he has a good heart. Helena is a fighter that doesn’t know who she can trust when thrown into this crazy world. It’s dark, so if you are looking for a picket fence romance this one would not be for you. There’s a great cliff hanger so I’m looking forward to book 2. Great read!

I don’t fall in love.
 
But there’s one woman who does intrigue me—Stephanie Barclay, the best friend of my boss’s wife. The same boss who wants Stephanie dead.
 
What’s the use? I make people disappear for the mob. What self-respecting woman would want to spend her life with a cleaner? That ship sailed a long time ago. Besides, relationships make you weak. But what if she is already a target?

He may be a nightmare to others, but I’m determined to make him my hero. Even if it kills me.

Lucian
A life free from sin.
For seventeen years, I have lived and breathed those words. But there is no balm to the war inside my soul.
Until her.
The mysterious beauty too lethal to taste. She’s a thief, a con, the essence of everything I loathe. Still, she lures me in with her lying eyes.
In the dark of night, she came to confess her sins, and in the light of morning, I plotted to steal her away.
She will be my ruination. My damnation. My biggest regret.
So help me, God.

Gypsy
A word of advice? Don’t show me your vulnerabilities because I will find a way to exploit them. I learned the hard way to take what I want from life with no regrets.
Until him.
He’s one of the most hated men in America. A soulless criminal attorney. A recluse. And as of five minutes ago, my new husband.
He wants to keep my secrets and collect my tears, but he should know that a wild animal can’t be domesticated.
I don’t know how to love men. I only know how to leave them.
With everything I want. 
I walked into my office and found the tall, leggy brunette waiting for me. She wasn’t the only one either. Beside her, Ace played around on his phone while Birdie flipped through a magazine.

I wasn’t surprised to see her this soon. In all honesty, I’d expected her to show up at my door last night, demanding to have Ace removed from her presence. But it appeared as though they survived the night, just barely.

“May I have a word with you?” Gypsy asked.

“You may,” I told her as I checked my watch. “In thirty minutes. When my lunch is finished.”

Her eyes narrowed, and she planted her hands on her hips as she stood. “You must be joking.”

“I don’t joke,” I responded flatly.

She stalked forward, stopping only when she’d breached the narrow distance that few people ever dared to try with me. She was reverting to her baser skills of seduction, but I doubted she even realized it. The instinct came naturally to her, often rewarding her with whatever she wanted, and admittedly, it might have worked on me too once.

She smelled of coconut oil and sunshine, and it encouraged a vivid image of her lying out on the beach. I could almost bet that if I were to touch her skin, it would be warm too. So warm that it would be easy to get lost in. She probably counted on it, but I was prepared to let Gypsy know from the start how this game would be played. There were only one set of rules, and they were mine.

“Do you want me to throw a fit?” she threatened as her eyes darted around my office. “Because I will.”

Now that was funny. My lips tilted despite my resolve to remain dry as toast.

“Do you think it would be the first time someone threw a fit in here?” I asked her. “I’m sorry to tell you sweetheart, but it wouldn’t.”
“It would probably be the first time someone accused you of holding them hostage in front of your employees.”

I turned and gestured for her to go ahead.

“Be my guest.”

Her lips tightened, and she clamped down on her jaw. After watching her for so long, these unintelligent threats from her were a disappointment. Of course, she wouldn’t make a scene because she had more to lose than I did.

“Thirty minutes,” I repeated. “I’ll have my secretary call for you when I’m finished.”

I walked into my office and shut the door behind me.

This was not what I expected. Confess was even more. It is a haunting, beautiful, and memorable story of love, loss, and new beginnings.  There are so many great secondary characters and story lines that weave together this amazing tale. It hard to give a review without giving away the story but take my word for it. It’s a story that you will stay in your heart long after the last page is read.
