“Cora Reilly is a master at forbidden and dangerous love… Maddox and Marcella are a fierce force together and part two can’t come fast enough”! – Sophie Lark, bestselling author

By Sin I Rise: Part 1, an all-new action packed dark romance from USA Today bestselling author Cora Reilly is available now!

Maddox – Mad Dog – White hates everything the name Vitiello stands for, after he witnessed his father and his men getting butchered by the Capo of the Italian mob in their territory. Raised by his uncle, the president of the Tartarus MC, Maddox is destined to follow in his footsteps. Now their chapter is on the rise again, but for their ultimate triumph they need to destroy the Vitiello empire. And what better way to do it than to steal the spoilt Vitiello princess and break her piece by piece until her father begs for mercy.

Known as the spoilt princess of New York, Marcella Vitiello grew up in a golden cage. If your father is the most feared man in New York, people gift you with reverence.

Destined to marry the boyfriend approved by her father, Marcella is sick of being treated like an untouchable porcelain doll.

She resents the life forced upon her by her family until everything she took for granted is ripped from her. Where she’s now, her name doesn’t bring awe, only pain and humiliation.

If you’ve grown up in a high castle, the fall is all the deeper.

Sins of the fathers have a way of catching up…who’s going to bleed for them?

From the very first moment I spotted Snow White, she’d burned herself into my brain. Every fucking night, the image of her naked body tortured me in maddening detail.
Sometimes I woke with the remnants of her taste in my mouth, half convinced I’d actually buried my tongue in her undoubtedly pretty pussy. Fuck, I hadn’t seen an inch of that legendary body yet, much less touched her. Oh, but I would, even if it took a poisoned apple.
A guy like me would never be allowed near Snow White. I wasn’t a fuckin’loser, far from it. I was going to become the president of the Tartarus MC, following in my uncle’s footsteps, the current prez. Of course, that made me the lowest scum on earth if you asked Snow White and her fuckin’father, Luca Vitiello, the Capo of the Italian mob on the East Coast. I was a little boy, barely five years old, when the life I knew was ripped from me. As the son of the president of the New Jersey chapter of the Tartarus motorcycle club, I had watched many disturbing things at my young age. Club brothers getting it on with whores in the middle of the clubhouse in broad daylight, brutal fights, shootings…but nothing had left quite a mark like the night the Capo of the Famiglia brutally killed my father and his men.
The murderous bastard had slaughtered an entire chapter of our club—alone.
Strike that.
Not alone—with a fuckin’ax and a skinning knife. The screams of my dying club family still haunted my nights, an echo of a memory I couldn’t shake unless I drank enough booze to kill an elephant. Those images were the fuel for my hunger for revenge.
And revenge I would finally get, with the help of the spoiled princess of New York: Marcella Vitiello.


Heart pounding danger and brutality! That’s what we get in this mafia/biker romance with the next generation Vitiello princess and papa Luca’s mortal enemy the Tartarus MC. The mafia princess’ kidnapping has her in the clutches of the MC in a revenge plot that was years in the making. Maddox ‘Mad Dog’ White is leading the pack of bikers in the plot that took everything from him when he was a child. A lifelong commitment to seeking revenge against Luca has Maddox up close and personal with the mafia princess. Marcella is a powerhouse of smarts, strength and beauty and I loved her backbone when faced with danger and cruelty. You won’t find her breaking so easily. She’s a terrific heroine and one I can root for. I loved watching her grow into a Queen. Maddox started off really strong but sort of went a little soft for me. I thought his life as the MC VP coupled with his childhood would have hardened him up but nope. A little disappointing but I still was swooning over the sexy biker. There are several bikers that you love to hate along with several cringeworthy events but it wasn’t as harsh and brutal as I expected given the circumstances. It didn’t really fit with what I would expect with the capture and torture of an enemy by brutal bikers in a revenge plot. But I was okay without the icky violence especially with the swoon worthy romance that bloomed between Maddox and his Snow White. Sweet and sexy! The story really picked up about midway and it was an intense ride all the way to the heart stopping ending. Maddox is determined to protect Marcella at a high cost to life and limb. The action intensified when the MC’s savagery escalates and Luca is desperate to save his daughter. The old Luca appears with murderous intent and his successor is right by his side. A peek at things to come with this next gen mafia family. Should be exciting! This ended with our couple on the outs and no reconciliation in sight. A mind twister in epic proportions. There’s just enough brutality to keep in real and a slow burn to hot romance between the sexy biker and his mafia princess. I can’t wait for the next story in this thrilling mafia romance.
