Release Blitz: Headhunter by Kristen Proby

Headhunter: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby is now live! 

Things have never been more intense in New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle Mafia series…

As the son of one of the States’ most prominent mob bosses, Shane Martinelli’s always been immersed in society’s shady underbelly. Learning to navigate it and keep to the edges was working just fine until an acquaintance turns up missing, and he fears the worst. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he hasn’t stopped thinking about her. Luckily, as an ex-special operative, he’s uniquely qualified to track her down and keep her safe. Unfortunately, nobody’s making that easy–not the people who took her nor the woman herself.

Ivie Jordan has led a pretty uneventful life, and that’s just how she likes it. Especially since she’ll be the first to admit that she doesn’t do so well in social situations. She’s a proud business owner, and while she doesn’t have family, she does have a network of people who look out for her. Little did she know that being accepted into that fold came with a laundry list of issues. When the worst happens, and she’s forced to rely on the ruggedly handsome alpha hero who comes to her rescue, she discovers her inner badass–and the sultry vixen on her other shoulder.

Too bad the two of them are literally running for their lives and trying to ensure the safety of those they love. There is way more at stake than meets the eye.

It’s time for the hunted to become the hunters.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: A Beauty So Cruel
Series: Beauty & The Beast #1
Author: Beena Khan
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: February 14, 2021


BLURB

I was a beauty, a stray orphan until the beast took me as his hostage.

Once upon a time…
A Don by the name of Vlad Vitalli ruled New York. He’s a mafia man. The leader of one of the ruling families, La Cosa Nostra. He’s a monster. A trained killer and a cold-blooded murderer. Tall, mysterious, with icy gray eyes, and he rarely smiles. His smile was made to fool any girl. He’s ruthless, cold, dangerous, and wants to kill me.

I was the wrong person at the wrong time.
Just an innocent at the masquerade ball. The mafia has rules: no witnesses left behind. To save my life, I made a deal with the beast. I handed myself to the cruelest man in the kingdom.

For him, It was supposed to be an easy kill. I’m an orphan raised in poverty. No one would have missed me. Just as the Don Vlad was about to order the hit, I threw off my masquerade mask, revealing my face, and offered myself to him. One look and I was doomed. He took me as his hostage. His captive. He didn’t know by taking me, Dahlia Hadid, he sealed his own fate.

Welcome to New York’s Underworld.
Loosely based on the fairytale.

EXCERPT

“Are you afraid of me?”
It was kind of hard not be, in front of a mafia don.
I didn’t answer and stayed still. Hopefully, he would stop asking me.
“I’ve said it before Dahlia, I don’t like repeating myself. I should have put you down already. You’re lucky you are still alive.” His voice was stern and aloof. It was the first time he’d spoken my name out loud. I tried not to like how it came out of his mouth.
“I’m not telling you,” I replied in defiance.
I looked up and a small smirk played on his lips.
“All I asked was for you to beg me.”
“And I said no,” I whispered, my breath landing on his lips.
He became still, looking deep into my eyes. I wished he would look away. It was hypnotic. His breathing was heavier and soon we were breathing the same air.
“How hard is it to say the word, please?” he murmured.
Oh. That’s what he wanted?
Please Vlad,” I said softly.
It was the first time I’d spoken his name.
“You’re so pretty when you beg.”
My eyes widened.
Then, something changed.
He dropped his arms and stepped away from me.

Excerpt

I waited until I was inside the elevator.

Until I was alone.

Just me and my fragile heart.

I watched the numbers light up as the elevator ascended. And as the distance between Romeo and myself grew, I told my heart we would be okay because we had Tristian.

I was lucky right?

So damn lucky.

And yet, two tears escaped. Tears of anger. Sadness. Tears he didn’t deserve in the first place. Tomorrow I would become Tristian Sinacore’s wife—tonight…

I would drink Romeo Sinacore away.

I exhaled in relief the minute the elevator stopped on my floor and I found my room. I pulled my key card from my purse and tapped it against the door. It clicked open and I was finally able to breathe as I kicked off my heels and went straight to the bar in my suite.

The alcohol was only temporary, but it would at least numb the catastrophe of Romeo. It had been one thing after another. Like he couldn’t help but continuously bruise my heart until it bled. I’d reached my boiling point. Instead of pouring a glass, I grabbed the bottle and made my way out onto the balcony to drink away the memory of him. I don’t know how much time went by when I heard a knock on my door.

Moments later, Romeo’s voice echoed through the room. “Red, open the door.”

I shouldn’t have walked back inside. I shouldn’t have let my heart guide my mind.

I shouldn’t…

I shouldn’t…

I shouldn’t…

Have opened that goddamn door.

I did.

“Stop what you’re doing and read Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken RIGHT NOW! It’s action packed with plenty of secrets and full of smoldering romance! If you love mafia romance, you will LOVE this book!” – New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy

Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep. –Robert Frost

I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I’d be the very monster I was protecting her from.

She didn’t know it was me.

She didn’t know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don’t sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out–I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I’ll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato’s perfect angel would pick me–over her perfect life.

“I broke you,” I confessed.

“The worst part… is that you liked it,” she snapped right back.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.

Waiting For Wednesday…..Eulogy (Eagle Elite #9) by Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: Feb 20. 2018

All is lost. 
All. 
I don’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore. 
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage. 
I’ve lost my soul. 
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been. 
Sixty lives are mine to take. 
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance. 
Sixty lives plus one more. 
Mine. 
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled. 
Only one person stands in the way. 
She doesn’t realize I’ll kill her too. 
I don’t own a heart. 
And even if I did — I wouldn’t fall prey to its lies again. 
I am Chase Abandonato. 
Heir to a legacy of betrayal. 
And I will kill them all. 
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself. 
A life for a life. 
A soul for a soul. 
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep. 
Blood in. No out.

Blog Tour with Review: Nico (Ruin & Revenge #1) by Sarah Castille

nico

“A deftly plotted page-turner that will leave readers panting for the next installment”Publisher’s Weekly

New York Times bestselling author Sarah Castille is back with NICO (St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99, December 6, 2016), the first book in her Ruin & Revenge series. With reminiscences of Romeo and Juliet, Castille presents a modern twist and a powerful bad boy spin on the classic tale. RT Book Reviews raves about Castille’s BEYOND THE CUT saying, “Castille continues to raise the stakes… giving readers the compelling romance they crave,” and that continues brilliantly in this new series.

Las Vegas Mafia boss, Nico Toscani, is used to getting what he wants, whether it is having the City of Sin under his rule or a beautiful woman in his bed. But when he meets his match in the gorgeous, headstrong Mia Cordano, the daughter of a rival crime lord, all bets are off. . .

Sexy computer hacker, Mia, struggles to break free of her ruthless father’s Mafia ties…but she can’t resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game. Will they surrender to the passion that burns between them—and risk tearing apart their families? Or will Nico be forced to betray the only woman who sets his blood on fire?

My Review

Wow! What a fantastic start to this new series. I mean is there anything that this author can’t write? I fell in love with Sarah Castille’s writing with her fighter and MC series, and now she had to give give me mafia romance…And let me tell you, she knocked this book out of the park!

Nico is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Nico and Mia. Mia wants nothing more than a life away from the family. She wants to make a life and name of her own. Soon enough, Mia will discover that cutting ties with the family is easier said than done, especially when a job will bring her close to a face and family she never thought she’d see again…Nico is the quintessential mafia man. He wants nothing more than to avenge his father’s death, no matter the cost. Only, when he meets Mia, all thoughts of revenge disappear. He’s met his match in every possible way. A relationship between the two of them would be impossible, but you know the old saying, the heart wants what the heart wants. Truer words have never been spoken…..

Nico is well written and totally captivating. I immediately got lost in the story-line and characters and could not wait to see how their story was going to play out. I loved Nico and Mia together. Not only did they have amazing chemistry, but I really loved how they challenged one another. Mia wasn’t afraid to step up to Nico and gave just as good as she got. She didn’t need a man to take care of her, but knew when to accept help; even if she didn’t want to. And that’s exactly what Nico needed. He needed a strong woman by his side and the fact that she knew and understood the life was a total bonus.

Overall, I think this series is off to a terrific start. It checked off all the boxes for a good mafia romance and I’m super excited to see where this story is gonna go next.

“It is not love that defines us, Julietta. It is love that destroys us.”

I’m just a normal girl.

Or so you would think.

I’ve never thought of myself as anything different.

Until I met him.

He doesn’t think I’m normal.

He thinks I’m special.

Special enough to be in his life.

Special enough to enter his world.

Special enough for his bed.

Rafael Lencioni. Dangerous. Beautiful. Terrifying.

My story is the one that’s never told.

I’m not the daughter.

I’m not the wife.

I’m not a sister or a mother.

I’m not his enemy and I’m not his friend.

I’m not who you think I am.

So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.

Something I would have frowned upon until I met him.

I have to change who I am.

I have to shut down my heart.

I have to accept my place.

My body belongs to him.

My heart isn’t permitted to.

Those are his rules.

But rules were made to be broken…right?
