Category: *Mafia/Organized Crime
Haunted by my past, I came close to ruining my best friend’s life.
To atone for my sins, I had to return to the place where it all began.
Unexpectedly, solace arrived as a crying girl with purple hair, a haunting link to my history that rendered her untouchable.
Her plea for help compelled me to answer.
Perhaps by aiding her, I could find redemption for myself.
Amid my brother’s disappearance, I longed for a savior.
Little did I expect to find one in a cemetery.
Jiro Saito, my late sister’s ex-boyfriend and my childhood crush, emerged as that unexpected hero.
He’s a complex blend of danger, scars, and haunting memories.
Strangely, I still long for him, despite knowing he views me only as a way to soothe his guilt.
Perhaps he can help my brother.
And maybe, just maybe, I can rescue Jiro too.
I walked in on my father as he massacred a man. From that day I vowed never to be that monster. I’ve been avoiding the family business anyway I can.
However, one night changes everything. Then my reasons enter my life and I’m reminded exactly why I can’t trust many.
I loved him first, but I never thought he’d love me back. I didn’t know I deserved better. However, after being beaten to within an inch of my life and placing my cousin in danger, I see a lot of things the way they are.
His words kept me alive, his strength helped me find my own, but his love has returned my fight. I know he’s not the villain here. He couldn’t be, we were together the whole time. He’s not the a**hole everyone thinks he is. He always has a reason.
Has he trusted the wrong people? How far will he go for me, for us? Will they uncover the savage he’s trying to bury or will this all create a new a**hole entirely? Find out as the problem comes out of the shadows.

No one betrays The Order—except a Davis.
Once upon a time, I was meant to be one of the three leaders of The Order.
But I was born with two irrevocable flaws:
A conscience and the ability to love.
Both cost me the one person that made life worth living.
Losing her made me become The Ghost.
I watched the consequences of my former world unravel, fighting from the shadows against the person who took everything from me.
I was the firstborn Cartwright, destined by my family’s legacy to run the Institute.
If you didn’t follow The Order, we would find a way to make you.
I accepted my position—until George Weiler.
He took me by surprise. Made me want things I was never meant to have.
One kiss turned into a forbidden love story.
No one betrayed The Order. Until me.
And for that, I paid the price.
Unbeknownst to everyone, I’ve been waiting in the dark to take back what is mine.
The Ghost is a dark, forbidden, second-chance novella with modern-day organized crime, Romeo-and-Juliet vibes and a prequel to The Dark Series and The Davis Order.
This book is intended for MATURE (18+) readers. The Ghost is labeled dark due to the themes that may be considered TRIGGERS for some. Reader discretion is advised.
This book was written by my mother, who passed away from cancer in February. I found this on her computer and knew she had been talking about publishing it, but she didn’t make it to see that happen. It wasn’t done and I was giddy to add some Forgy flare to it. Now it’s ready for the world. This is for you, Mom.
From the author of best-selling Devil’s Dust MC, M.N. Forgy and her mother give a whole new rush and spark in the bedroom.
I came to the Rush Riders Motorcycle Club to help a friend out, get them out of trouble, and before I knew it, I became a member. Fast women, drugs, whiskey, and fights were all things I expected and was ready for. A young woman walking into the club selling drugs wasn’t. C was everywhere I didn’t want her to be. Her naïve personality was resilient to my asshole attempts to run her off. The next thing I knew, I wanted more than to take her to my bed. We were like a match to gasoline, the combustion so powerful not even I could walk away. I wanted to dominate her, to make her mine, which would have been an amazing plan if our worlds hadn’t collided, leaving me with having to choose between my club and her.
Can the rules of the Rush Riders MC bend to my will, or will the brotherhood mean nothing?
If they want a war, I’ll give it to them.
She’s not mine to take. I steal her anyway. Too young for the likes of me, but I claim her as my own.
Zinaida Krupin doesn’t know the meaning of the word freedom. Her father has isolated her for almost a decade. When Kazimir, the Bratva Pakhan, comes to her home with a contract that is too good to resist, she takes it happily. But has she made a deal with the Devil?
Osip Gusev never really thought about his future in the Bratva. He’s always done what is expected of him. As a respected Brigadier, he felt that he had reached his potential. That is until Kazimir comes to him with a new plan, an opportunity that opens up his future to something he could have never imagined.
She is a Printsessa. He’s just a soldier. Can they take over an entire territory together, or will they completely fail?
Not everyone is happy about this takeover. Some men are undoubtedly angry that the new king and queen of Northern California seem to be in control and so effortlessly. Can they thrive, or will they fail abysmally?
He’s twenty years her senior, but age is just a number when you’ve found the woman who intrigues you.
Marilyn Jones is a survivor. Her childhood was anything but picture-perfect. In fact, it was nothing short of complete chaos and trauma. She’s working hard to be the complete opposite of her upbringing. But no matter how hard you try to get away from it, the past always has a way of coming back around.
When an opportunity shows up at her doorstep, she knows she must pivot her life to accept this new future.
The President of the Nasty Bastards MC has always loved his life just as it is. So, when his past showed up a few years ago, it was a shocking but welcome addition to his life, something he accepted wholeheartedly.
When his eyes land on Marilyn, he knows that his life is missing something. Maybe it isn’t so perfect, just the way that it is. The lives they lead are full of heartache and pain. But their futures don’t have to be, do they?
A moment of clarity is all that Prez needs to know what he wants, who he wants. But Marilyn is too busy trying to shield her battered heart to take the blind leap forward. Will she realize what she not only wants but needs before it’s too late?
Everyone knows to stay away from the heirs of Olympus Bay. They rule the city through savagery and blood like the heartless assholes they are.
A streak of bad luck puts me on the path of the most ruthless of them all. Hades. The black sheep of the family, his reputation for debauchery and violence precedes him. No wonder he’s the king of Olympus U.
He wants me to pay for a mistake I didn’t intend to make, and I fear refusing him will only end in tragedy. But there are worse fates than being the target of a savage god.
When another ruthless player enters the arena and demands more than I can give, I find myself stuck in the middle of a family war, and Hades emerges as my savior. And my captor.
The longer I stay by his side, the more I realize the man is not what he seems. He’s dark and brutal, but he also possesses a tenderness I didn’t think was possible. That’s his most dangerous weapon. If I’m not careful, I might never want to leave his prison.
Only I can’t indulge in my desires. My family needs me, and if I surrender to Hades completely, I may never see my loved ones again.
*This is a contemporary retelling of Hades & Persephone’s story.
Our enemies are everywhere…
…and we can’t see them.
The Brotherhood has us in their sights. In their scope.
The attacks are coming from everywhere and nowhere from a seemingly invisible enemy. But they won’t be invisible for long.
When we discover how the Brotherhood manages to stay five steps ahead, it’s up to me to find and stop the traitor.
The only problem is it requires me to revisit a place I swore I’d never go: my past.
The battle for the city we love is heating up. The Brotherhood challenges the Merchants’ right to rule, and Genny and the Savage Princes don’t give a f*ck.
Cinco is theirs and they’ll fight to the death to protect it.
And me… well, I just might be their secret weapon.
Can a person settle for less than they deserve because there’s a glimmer of hope for what they want?

Kazimir Laskin has worked his way up the ranks of the Bratva. He’s a Pakhan, and he should have everything he desires, or at least be able to take it. He owns a successful club. Money is no object. Men do what he says when he says it–except he can’t have the only woman he craves.
Her station is beneath him. He must marry for the interest of the Bratva, not the good of his heart. When Natasha gives up, Kaizimir watches her leave but cannot let her go. Truth be told, she cannot let go of him either.
When betrayal is at his feet, Kazimir must make some decisions. He must take matters into his own hands. If he catches her, can he keep her? When you’re the Pakhan, are there any rules, or do you get to rewrite them?

When the president of the New York chapter of the Seven Knights MC dies, he passes the gavel down to Niko… but unknown to anyone else, that’s not the only thing he left him.
Niko fights for what’s his, and he’s only ever claimed one person in his life—Meraki. So when he rips away the walls she built around herself with his bare teeth, the secrets that she has so fiercely hidden away all of these years suddenly bleed onto the four unmarked graves laid out in front of his steel-cap boots…
It started with a bond that destroyed everyone around them…
…it ends with blood.

Grisha Antonov was given a girl when he was in his early twenties. She was too young for him. He accepted the deal anyway. As a Russian Bratva Torpedo, it was a deal that he should have demanded money for, not a barter, not a person as payment.

When I was younger, I believe I almost stumbled upon something I shouldn’t have. Something that upset my mother and made her abandon us all. It was all my fault.
I grew up wondering how she could leave us? My older brothers never blamed me, but I’ve blamed myself. So much so I never asked questions when I was thrown into the family business. Then I had my little girl. I thought I could take a vacation from being a Di Lorenzo.
However, my selfish wife has ensured my return to the life. I will no longer be able to remain an outsider to what my brothers and I have been handed.

When this becomes personal, all thoughts of keeping my secrets go out the window. In the blink of an eye, I become who I was created to be.
Will the truth tear everything apart? Will there be one secret too many? Or will it all go according to plan in this unexpected love?

Can a marriage survive manipulation and lies?
She was hellbent on making her father disown her. Her rebellious attitude and the color that marred her snowflake skin was proof of that, so I used that knowledge to my benefit.
I promised her hate and blood. Instead, what she got was my heart and a weak man on his knees in front of her.

Sasha Nikolayev was my vice. I was an addict for her. I would have said and done anything to chain her to me—so that’s what I did.
