Trope: Mafia Romance
I’ve never met him. Never even seen him.
But I’ve heard the whispers. The rumors. The stories about him being as cruel as his father.
Maybe even worse.
They say his presence wraps around your throat whenever he enters a room. And that’s exactly what I feel the moment he walks into the diner where I work, and I hear people breathe out his name.
Alexius Del Rossa.
They call him the crown prince of the Dark Sovereign—a society of men who own everything but the weather in this town.
Men say he has ice in his veins, and women talk about the corrupted heart in his chest. He’s the kind of man you pray never to cross paths with. The kind of man a girl like me has no chance of surviving.
But while his eyes trap mine, and his magnetism touches my skin, I’m unable to move when he forces me into a corner and hands me an envelope.
It’s an offer.
One I can’t refuse.
See, I have nothing. No family. No friends. No home.
I can disappear and no one will know.
And that is exactly why he chose me.

MY REVIEW: Tantalizing start to a new mafia series with a group of sexy, depraved brutes. The Del Rosa brothers are at the top of the food chain in their criminal world of extreme power and decadence. The leader-in-waiting is the oldest and deadliest of the four. Alexius rules fiercely and plays hard along with his brothers and best friend Maximus. Their underground world of sex clubs is a thrilling backdrop especially when a psychotic killer takes aim. But first, for Alexius to take over the throne of Dark Sovereign, the shady organization ruled by the Del Rossa family, his father stipulates that he take a wife. Enter ‘the stray’. As the poor girl without a future Leandra is not ready for the challenge of being a Del Rossa but she’s not given a choice. I love her transformation into a strong, sexy woman fighting her demons and owning her present as Alexius’ wife. A beauty is born out of the rubbish of a sad, cruel life. I loved the way Alexius fought his attraction to his wife and ultimately lost the battle. The sensual chemistry was hot and the passion flowed between the two. The only problem was the brothers appetite for playing sexually all together. How would Alexius handle his newfound jealousy and possessiveness over his wife? And what would happen when their time was up? Yep, the marriage had a end date set by Alexius. But first a killer must be dealt with and Alexius must thwart his evil uncle before he takes the throne of Dark Sovereign. So much going on it’s all thrilling as a lustful marriage is born, a killer is targeting the Del Rossas, and a struggle for control of Dark Sovereign turns deadly. The mystery and danger is spellbinding as the killer strikes again but the sensual romance is the showstopper. Everything you want and have come to expect from this fabulous author and her exciting storytelling with fabulous characters. Alexius has all the markings of being one of her best dark antiheroes and Leandra is a beauty that will match his darkness in her own special style. A true Del Rossa wife. Absolutely fabulous!
