F*cked by the Sinner by Hayley Faiman

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?

 

Caught by the Sinner by Hayley Faiman

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?

She burned with her demons instead of running from them, but when Niko Davis rode back into town with a bag full of secrets, she knew she would need to start hiding them instead. Niko knew her inside and out, and if he saw even a smidge of her soul, he would see that she was no longer the girl he left behind…

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 the news breaks that someone from their past is released from one of the most secure and dangerous prisons in Russia, Grisha knows one thing and one thing only. He must protect Ksenia at all costs, even if she doesn’t want to have anything to do with him.
She is bound to him, but at the same time, he is equally as bound to her. They are meant for one another, bound, owned, connected.

And as desire mounts, so does danger. And once Archer uncovers the truth about her past, he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe—and make her his.

 

Dark Prince by N.E. Henderson

Two world’s collided, igniting forbidden passion like no other.

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.

She was never supposed to be my bride or my anything. She was the daughter of a rival family, not even of Italian descent. She was from a completely different culture.

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.

*** This is book 2 in The New American Mafia series. Please read BAD PRINCESS first. This book is a different couple but the series is interconnected.

Bad Princess by N.E. Henderson

Mafia.

To most it’s a fearful word. A group to stay away from. It’s dangerous. To me, it’s a way of life. Born a Caputo, an Italian mafia family feared on the American east coast, I’m more like them than I care to admit.

The only daughter of Antonio Caputo, rage and fire course through my veins the same as it does my father and my brothers. I was bred for violence. I thirst for blood. I was raised to never back down. I’m hungry for the power they all hold.

I pretend to be the princess Daddy wants me to be.

To the outside world I’m the angel among monsters. I’m a good liar. An even better player. I even have him fooled—the one person I never meant to hide myself from. I’m done hiding. The day I shed my cap and gown the real me came out.

He still hasn’t figured out it’s all just a coverup. No matter how many times I told him I wasn’t the good little girl he thought I was, he didn’t believe me. He never thought I could handle him, pretending I didn’t exist.

Truth is—he’s the one that can’t handle me, and he’s about to see how bad I can be.

*INCLUDES A SHORT STORY: BECOMING HIS BRIDE

 

His: Dominic (The Sabatini Family, #1) by Fiona Murphy

Any minute I am going to wake up from this nightmare. Being tied up and thrown in the trunk of a car doesn’t happen in real life. Except the silk tie around my wrists feels very real. And my father, Johnny Conti, the head of the Outfit, is telling me to be a good girl—that I’m to be the wife of the man who tied me up and has me over his wide shoulder.

Some women might swoon over gorgeous Dominic Sabatini with his blue eyes, dimples, and muscled body in a silk suit. Not me. Those are just distractions from who, what he really is: a ruthless killer with blood on his hands and ice in his veins.

There is no way Dominic could actually want to marry me. A virgin, curvy, buried in an all-girls Catholic boarding school for most of my life and seventeen years younger than him. He’s marrying so far beneath him it’s absurd.

No to all of it. Tomorrow I’m going to marry the man of my dreams, a nice, kind accountant. I’m going to have the safe, boring life I’ve always longed for. I have to escape this nightmare. But Dominic growls I belong to him and he keeps what is his.

This a mafia romance with dark elements. While this is the first book in a series it is a standalone and does not end in a cliffhanger. 

 

ANTIDOTE (Beasts of Prey, #1) by LC Lehesaho

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

Falling in love is easy. Surviving from the mess it can make is everything but.

For the past five years, my heart hasn’t belonged to me. I’ve always known it’s not very rational, but the day when it said bye-bye to me and moved to a room next to mine—I knew I’d never get it back.
Tiger is a hurricane and the calm after the storm all at once, my best friend and the one I’d die for. But life is not a fucking love song, and people like us don’t get happy endings. Especially when you’re a daughter of Shangri-la’s biggest crime boss, and the one holding your heart is your foster-brother.

You said that we’re doomed from the beginning, but you know what, baby girl? We’re not doomed. You are.

If Cobra thinks that she can deny me, she’s sorely mistaken. When her father dragged me out of Hell, and she enchanted me with her pink hair, bruised face, and heart of gold—she got a stamp on her ass, which reads Tiger Hayes all over it.
She gave me my name, said that I’m a beast like them, so she should know better—never run or the beast will chase.

But somebody’s watching us, playing games from the shadows, and now we have to find out who’s the biggest predator in the city before it’s too late.

The Ghost (Hitman, #4) by Ellie Isaacson

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

They said he was a ghost. A man who could slip in and out of a room, kill without a trace, and never be noticed.
But I noticed.
From the moment we met, he was the only thing I saw.
His moonlit gaze. The anger rippling under his skin. The turmoil dancing in the dark depths of his mind.

They said I was innocent and pure. That I needed to be hidden away and protected from the world.
Only I knew the truth.
I was stronger than they gave me credit for. And the brutal killer who showed no mercy melted under my touch.

Our pasts collided, vicious and cruel. And when mine came to collect, it wasn’t just my life on the line.

It was his, too.
