Every woman in my life has let me down, hurt me, or abandoned me. Which is why the only female I hold close to my heart is Hallie– my daughter.
But being a single father comes with certain challenges, so I hire a nanny.
Someone who can do her hair, tell her stories, and be the motherly figure she doesn’t have.
When Mia starts, I know she’ll be perfect, but I have to keep her at arm’s length. I tell myself it’s because I don’t know how to fix her broken soul from the past she’s so desperate to hide, but in reality, it’s more.
The way I feel about her scares me. She’s beautiful, feisty, and so incredibly kind.
Although I try to deny it, I can feel myself falling for her. And when our pasts collide with the present, we have no choice but to face our demons together and fight.
Will I be able to finally put my fears aside and find true happiness?

“𝙏𝙤𝙣𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙙𝙖𝙢𝙣 𝙛𝙪𝙣!”

 

That’s what Vanessa Paige thought on her way out the door after an argument with her fifteen-year-old niece, Simone.

 

Vanessa took her niece in a few months ago after the sudden death of her half-sister, Monique. The transition from single life to parental guardian is beyond difficult. They share a small apartment above the bookstore she co-owns with her best friend, Whitney Brown, and butt heads and bump into each other daily.

 

Vanessa has been looking forward to the Hope Ridge High Twenty Year Class Reunion for weeks, mainly because her best friend’s older brother, Will Brown, is picking her up.

The night of her dreams turns into a nightmare when she returns home and discovers Simone has gone. There’s not a trace of her left in the apartment. It’s as if she vanished into thin air.

While the good folks of Hope Ridge come together to search for Simone, Vanessa is distraught. Simone’s disappearance leaves her with more questions than answers. Someone is lying. Someone knows where Simone is, and what happened the night of the reunion. Someone has committed the ultimate deception.

Title: Corrupted Pleasure

Author: Eva Winners
Genre: Age Gap Mafia Romance
Release Date: June 8, 2022
 
 
 
 
 
★★★★★ Intel Chicky Reads Romance (Kara Merideth) – “I’ve read all of Eva’s mafia books and this one was a bit of a departure from her usual tales, but what a totally fantastic ride!”
 
★★★★★ Karen_Lee_Reads – “Readers get humor, shenanigans, a couple whose hot and steamy relationship keeps readers happy and a truly nice Irish Mob leader.”
 
★★★★★ Jess and the Traveling Chair – “I CANT. GET. ENOUGH. Y’all this book is one that you stay up until 2AM to read because its mysterious, SPICY, and the perfect amount of possessive alpha male.”
 

The first time I saw him, I knew I’d never want another man the way I wanted him.

 

The second time, I drank a bottle of his most expensive cognac, which I’d never be able to afford on my own.

 

And the third time… well, he caught me stealing from him.

 

Stealing from the head of the Irish Mafia wasn’t smart. But then I never claimed to be.

 

Now I owed him a debt… a big one. And it couldn’t be settled with money, or favors.

 

He only wanted one thing…

 

Me. Submitting to his darkest demands. Once the debt is settled he’ll let me go.

 

Except he is forbidden to me. Because if I were smart… I’d figure out another way to repay my best friend’s father.

Title: Alexius
Series: Dark Sovereign Book 1
Author: Bella J.
Genre: Dark Romance/Mafia Romance
Release Date: May 10, 2022
Cover Design: Deranged Doctor Design
Cover Model: Isaac Moreno
Photographer: Rafa G Catala

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.
