Kendra Moreno is secretly a spy but when she’s not dealing in secrets and espionage, you can find her writing her latest adventure. She lives in Texas where the summer days will make you melt, and southern charm comes free with every meal. She’s a recovering Road Rager (kind of) and slowly overcoming her Star Wars addiction (nope!), and she definitely didn’t pass on her addiction to her son (she did). She has one hellhound named Mayhem who got tired of guarding the Gates of Hell and now guards her home against monsters. She’s a geek, a mother, a scuba diver, a tyrannosaurus rex, and a wordsmith who sometimes switches out her pen for a sword.
 
If you see Kendra on the streets, don’t worry: you can distract her with talks about Kylo Ren or Loki.

Only, the girl is hidin’ somethin’ and when I find out what it is, I will make her pay.
But not before I get a taste of her cherry blossom lips.

I warned her.
I told her there’s no line I won’t cross to keep her.
And that’s what I did. I crossed a line.
Thing is, I don’t regret it. I’d do it again if I had the chance.
This all started with me needing a wife—a wife I didn’t want.
But things changed. She got under my skin and into my bed.
Now, I’m not willing to let her go.
Not even if she begs me to set her free.
She knew the risk.
She knew my love would come with a burden she’ll carry for the rest of her life.
And the rest of her life is now; it’s here with me as her husband.
Whether she spends it behind a locked door forever…that’s up to her.

Title: Fighting to be Free
Series: Beautifully Brutal Series Book Five
Author: Emma Luna
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
Release Date: December 6, 2022
Cover Design: Pretty In Ink Creations

FREYA
I was raised to be a prize. Something to be traded for the right price.
I didn’t have a choice, but I guess it comes with the territory of being the daughter of a mafia king. I’ve always longed for more, though.
A life without chaos and blackmail. One where I don’t have to worry if my lover will be murdered at the hands of the enemy, and I can just fade into the background.
But when Kian drifts into the picture, I consider abandoning that dream.
He shouldn’t like me, and he’s never wanted a relationship before, but he makes me feel things I never have. He speaks to my heart in a way only a lover can.
For so long, I’ve fought for normal, but now Kian is fighting for me, and I’m not sure I can say no.
 
KIAN
She’s everything I never knew I wanted–empathetic, compassionate, and knows what she wants. The complete opposite of someone who has been brought up in a world of crime.
She isn’t hardened or heartless. She’s soft and delicate, but the life I live isn’t one she wants to be part of.
Although she doesn’t like it, she’s no stranger to combat. I’ve fought for the things I want my entire life, and she’ll be no exception.
I’ll make her see she can’t deny me or the chemistry we have. That we are worth fighting for.
Freya Doughty will be mine.
Does all that sound okay?
