Series: The Ryan Brothers
Author: Bella Di Corte
Genre: Mafia Romance / Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 11, 2023
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Lachlan:
I was never the good guy, but I’d once had good intentions.
The road to hell was paved with those, though, and that was where I was headed because of the trouble I was in.
Which was why I found myself rooming with my best friend’s little sister, Clara Bow Mulligan—for safety’s sake. Hers and mine. Even with my guard up, though, she went much deeper than flesh and hit bone.
Maybe she was the one who could finally turn this sinner into a saint.
 
Clara:
I was always the squeaky-clean one. The girl who did everything for everyone, even when no one did for me.
Even once I was a woman, not much had changed. Not until Lachlan Ryan entered my life again and reminded me of how much I’d once wanted him. But he had never wanted me. He still thought of me as the innocent Saint Clara Bow.
Those days were over.
It was time this saint was touched by a sinner.

Blurb:

They expected me to bend. To wilt.

But this rose has thorns too.

 

I have no family. No life. No dreams.

 

I have nothing left.

 

My father and Nikolai made sure of that when they made me a pawn in their mafia games.

 

A broken woman. A tainted bride. A bargaining chip. That’s all I am to them.

 

But things are changing.

 

I am changing.

 

Learning. Growing. Rising from the ashes anew.

 

At first, I didn’t understand what Nikolai woke in me when he used my body for his revenge plot. But now? Now, I have plans of my own.

 

He may think I’m his Rose to claim, to dominate, control, but I am a rose steeped in war and born from bloodshed.

 

It’s about time I live up to my name.

Title: A Mafia Hand: Juno (High Stakes, #1)
Author: Shilo West
Genre: Billionaire Romance
Publisher: Crave Publishing, LLC
Publication Date: Jan. 2nd, 2023
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

I tried not to look at him again…Not today, you caramel sundae of a man, I thought to myself.

 

He’d been a thorn in my side all night. He was pretty enough to look at, but I wasn’t in the mood for nonsense, and this guy couldn’t help himself. And I was having to spend way too much of my time focusing on how to keep my thoughts from wandering back to the dimple in his chin.

 

But I could feel his eyes, they were fixated upon me.

 

Fortunately for me, after years in casinos, country clubs, dive bars, and back-room card games up and down the east coast before making my way to Vegas, I had learned a thing or two, or four or five, about how to keep track of all the eyes at a card table.

 

And this tournament has no room for distractions. This tournament is my prison break. My ticket out of a life I never meant to have. Unfortunately, in a spit second, things took a bad turn…I saw Mitchell’s men.

 

Mitchell Byron, known to the world as the mysterious inventor, entrepreneur, and tech billionaire XK3M has been hunting me since the day I left. And he’s a lot more dangerous than betting big bucks on some high stakes poker game.

 

Now I’m betting for my life…

Shilo West is the author of the High Stakes series. She loves to write mafia/billionaire adventure type romances. Lucky enough to live in Maui with her dog and fiancée, when she’s not writing, she loves hanging out at the beach or hiking.

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?
