From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 44 Chapters About 4 Men (inspiration for the Netflix Original series Sex/Life) comes a dark mafia romance steeped in Irish folklore.
I can’t remember anymore if my grandfather’s eyes were blue or green, but I’ll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes. Or the way they sparkled with mischief when he told me tales about the magical creatures that dwelled in the forest behind his humble Irish sheep farm—shy fairies who liked to eat tea biscuits, cruel witches who liked to eat children, a moody lake spirit with a taste for expensive gifts.
As a child, I believed every fantastical word. But when he warned me about the mute boy who also lurked in those woods, the one the priest had declared to be the spawn of Satan himself, I refused to listen. Kellen wasn’t evil. He was kind, and beautiful, and special, and hurting. He was my friend. And with every summer I spent stolen away with him in those enchanted woods, he grew to become so much more.
But when I return to Glenshire as an adult, grieving and engaged to someone else, all those legends quickly morph into nightmares.
My grandfather had been right about everything, especially the boy.
If only I had listened.
WARNING: If you are a sensitive reader or find certain topics to be emotionally triggering, please exercise self-care and select a different book. Devil of Dublin is intended for mature audiences who enjoy dark subject matter, tortured anti-heroes, explicit adult content, graphic violence, heart-pounding suspense, fairy-tale worthy love, and gorgeous Irish scenery. If that sounds like you, then welcome to Glenshire!
Special edition hardbacks and paperbacks are also available with an alternate cover designed by Emily Wittig and eight full-page, B&W photos of the gorgeous Irish locations mentioned in the book!

Narrated by: Elizabeth Klett and Eric Nolan
(an Irish actor seen on Game of Thrones, Vikings, Vikings Valhalla, & The Witcher)
When I first heard about Devil of Dublin, I knew I had to get my hands on this book. Devil of Dublin is a dark and intriguing story filled with Irish scenery and folklore, violence, and enough suspense to keep you on your toes.
Darby and Kellan’s story spanned many years and left me captivated from their first encounter. Darby and Kellan had an instant connection and bond. Their lives are on different paths and no matter how hard he tries, Kellan can’t escape the demons and trauma of his past. Kellan is so damaged and the only thing that keeps the darkness away is Darby. Together these two will go on a dark and intriguing journey. The road to happily ever after isn’t an easy one for these two and it will definitely keep readers on their toes.
Overall I thought this book was an ok read. I loved the setting and the folklore that accompanied it. I will say that while I did find some aspects of this story to be dark, it wasn’t as dark or intense as I was hoping it would be, and that might just be me, which is ok. I loved Darby and Kellan together. They were two lost souls that couldn’t be more perfect for one another.

Meet BB Easton
Wall Street Journal bestselling author BB Easton lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her long-suffering husband, Ken, and two adorable children. A few years ago, she quit her job as a school psychologist to write books about her punk rock past and deviant sexual history full-time. Ken wasn’t super excited about that, but now that he’s appeared in three of her books and inspired a TV show character, he’s incredibly supportive.
BB’s debut memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men, went on to inspire the Netflix original series, Sex/Life, which was viewed by 67 million households worldwide within the first month making it the 3rd most-watched Netflix original series of all time. Because she had so much fun writing 44 Chapters, BB went on to publish four more wickedly funny, shockingly steamy, and heartwarmingly autobiographical books, one for each man in her memoir—Skin, Speed, Star, and Suit.
The Rain Trilogy—a dark, immersive, end-of-the-world romance—was BB’s first work of fiction. Or at least, that’s what she thought when she wrote it in 2019. Then, 2020 hit, and all of her dystopian plot points started coming true. Hoping to fix everything, BB returned with a fun, feel-good romantic comedy called Group Therapy, but alas, the world is still on fire … and so is BB’s desire to write intense, us-against-the-world romances. Her next release,Devil of Dublin, isa dark Irish mafia romance steeped in folklore and family secrets.
You can find BB procrastinating in all of the following places:
White Collar Brothers: The Complete Series by Piper Rayne is now live!
The bigger the playboy, the harder they fall.
Included in this box set is:
Sexy Filthy Boss (White Collar Brothers #1) He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.
I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.
The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.
t doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.
No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.
But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.
Dirty Flirty Enemy (White Collar Brothers #2) He’s the arrogant Manhattan realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in negotiations.
I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall from his office.
From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client comes to me?
Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.
Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us, the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against each other.
Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.
Wild Steamy Hook-Up (White Collar Brothers #3) It was never my plan to wake up in a Vegas hotel room as Dominic Mancini’s WIFE. The man has brought me nothing but heartache since I was sixteen.
At least we agree on one thing—a quickie annulment and we can both get on with our lives. I can go back to teaching little girls to dance and he can go back to making millions on Wall Street.
But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. It follows you right into an ambush by your Italian Mamas who deliver Oscar-worthy performances when heaping on the guilt.
So, we do what any good Italian kids would do. We secretly agree to pretend to give marriage a try.
But our easy solution morphs into a convoluted mess and leaves us wondering–is it safe to bet on each other?
Rock, Paper, Santa (White Collar Brothers #3.5) In this ensemble cast holiday novella the competition between the brothers is still at an all-time high. Join the Mancini’s and their lady loves at the Santa Run in Central Park and attend a swanky fundraiser afterward.

The Aspen Pack series from NYT Bestselling Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a fated romance that was never supposed to happen.
Skye Jamenson-Anderson knows the legacy she must live up to. She’s the daughter of warriors and the granddaughter of the late Alphas who sacrificed everything so their den could survive. Though she feels she doesn’t have a place in her Pack, she does everything in her power to keep them and their allies alive—including saving the Aspen Alpha.
As Alpha of the Aspen Pack, Chase Leyne knows a thing or two about one’s legacy. He’s the son of a traitor and the most powerful wolf in his territory. He also knows without a doubt that Skye is not his mate. When the two decide to lean on another in every way possible, they both go in knowing nothing forever can come out of it.
The enemy is stepping up their game and threaten the stability of the alliance forged in blood. With one bite, Chase and Skye’s world changes, and the one thing that is keeping them apart might be the only promise to save their Packs and their future.
Hunted in Darkness is the second book in the Aspen Pack Series and while this story is a part of an ongoing storyline, I do think it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone. Having not read the first book in this series I can tell you that this book hit the ground running and kept me intrigued the entire time.
Chase and Skye were the fated romance that was never supposed to happen. Skye has a legacy that she must live up to and while Chase is the son of a traitor, he’s the most powerful wolf in his territory. Together Skye and Chase must come together to fight a common enemy, all while exploring the explosive chemistry between them. Forever may not be in the cards for the two of them, but that put things to a stop. As the enemy steps up their game, one bite changes Skye and Chase’s world forever…
Overall, I thought this was a really great read. It captured my interest from the very beginning and I loved the dynamic and chemistry between Chase and Skye. I loved the paranormal elements and fast pace of this story. It kept me on the edge of my seat and left me wanting more. All in all, a fun book to spend my day with.

It all started when I hosted a little party for a bunch of new friends.
Though “friends” might not be the right word since the invitees were all the women I’d found out my boyfriend was talking to behind my back. When the guest of honor walked in—aka my now ex—things took a turn…
Unfortunately, a stranger witnessed the whole blowout. I was in a mood that night and ended up giving this gorgeous guy an attitude, too. As if my night could get any worse, before he stormed off, he informed me he was actually my landlord.
Colby Lennon, along with three of his friends, owned the building where my tattoo shop was located. He and I were total opposites. He wore a tie, oozed confidence that came with years of women falling at his feet, and wasn’t afraid to say what he wanted, which lately—was me.
I hated that I found myself attracted to him. Especially since I was supposed to be on a self-imposed dating hiatus. Yet the two of us couldn’t seem to stay away from each other. We started hanging out, as friends. I even went as far as making rules for what he’d dubbed our “undates.”
But eventually, our explosive attraction became too much to bear, and we broke our resolve. I let my guard down and started to really fall for Colby.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.

Breaking up with your high school sweetheart was one thing.
Breaking up with Hollywood’s favorite actor? That was a different situation.
I’d been in love with Aiden Walters since I was a little girl. We’d grown up as neighbors in small town Wisconsin. I knew him inside and out, and he knew every single piece of me. I was there when his career took off, and I was almost certain I’d always be a part of his life.
It wasn’t until a scandal broke out that I was forced to end things with Aiden. He didn’t take it very well. The boy I once loved began to hate me. He went off to California to leave all of his past behind—including me.
Five years later, he was back in town for the next few months taking care of some family business. He was staying in the only hotel in our small town. The hotel I now oversaw. For the next few months, I’d be forced to cater to the man whose heart I’d broken all those years ago. The man who resented me. The man who swore he’d never speak to me again.
Now that he was back in town, in constant connection with me, I had to keep reminding myself daily of why I ended things with him in the first place. Otherwise, I’d find myself falling in love with him all over again. Only this time, I was certain that if I fell, he wouldn’t be willing to catch me.
