Edon Garo and Adriel Tirana were betrothed to be married, even if neither of them knew it. When Edon’s father gave him the ultimatum to either marry Adriel or give back the Syndicate, he knew that he was going to have to do some fast thinking. There was no way that he planned on settling down any time soon, no matter how incredibly sexy he found the petite brunette. His father would just have to accept the fact that his drunken pledge, to join his oldest son to the Tirana family, wasn’t going to work out because hell would freeze over before Edon would settle down and marry any woman.
Adriel Tirana was done with the old-fashioned ways of her family and her Syndicate. She hated that her father pledged her hand in marriage to a Garo—Edon Garo, no less. He didn’t even know that she existed and blowing her off for their arranged first date was just the push she needed to finally tell Edon off, once and for all. She wouldn’t be ignored by the man who was supposed to be her future husband. It didn’t matter that she didn’t want to marry him or any other man, for that matter. Adriel would make her point, tell him to go to hell, and move on. Yeah—that was the plan, but instead, she woke up the next morning in his bed with no recollection of how she got there. And now, everyone was hearing wedding bells except for her and her prospective groom, and Adriel had a feeling that wouldn’t end well for either of them.
Edon is the first book in the Garo Syndicate Trilogy (Social Rejects Syndicate) by K.L. Ramsey

The time—early 1980s.
The place—Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
My name is Connor Masterton. My brothers and partners are Jake and Quinn.
I’m the eldest, and the one responsible for keeping our drug cartel alive and prospering.
Using the undeveloped country as a cover, we are able to operate with next to no chance of being caught.
Or so I thought…
Who will betray our operation and push us to the brink of destruction?
Can we survive the betrayal?
🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡🛡

One man. Two lives.
And danger everywhere.
 
To most of the world, I am simply an athlete. I live in the public eye as one of Argentina’s best futbol players. I have an entire life that is built around the game and the fans and the media that loves to see my face on billboards. But I have another life that few know about. To the members of the dark and seedy underground, I am known simply as Sosa. The name alone strikes fear into our enemies and as the current underboss for the family cartel, I’m capable of destroying someone without a second thought.
 
Except for her.
 
We were childhood best friends, teenage lovers and then, she disappeared. Now, all these years later she’s back and as beautiful as ever. I want nothing more than to sweep her into my arms but with our families rocky history, I know I shouldn’t cross the line. Family comes first.
Always.
But what our fathers know, won’t get anyone hurt, right?

Luciana
I knew at a young age my father would dictate my life by choosing my husband. A man who could increase my father’s power as King of Colombia and one of the biggest crime lords to walk this Earth.
As Princess of Colombia and of the Rojas Crime Family I always assumed my father would marry me off to a prince next in line to the thrown, or a King. I never imagined my father would trade me to a crime lord who was much darker than my father. I knew I was a possession to my farther, I had been foolish to believe he would ensure my safety. He only wanted to plant me as a spy.
I had heard of Amir Boutella and his family. If the rumors were true they were monsters. One rumor in particular had me scared senseless…Amir had killed his first wife. The reason why was unknown to me. Would he kill me as well once he was finished with me?
Once Amir staked his claim on me I quickly learn not everything is black and white. Yes he is dark…oh so dark, but I found his light. He was evil, but he was also good. He wasn’t the monster the rumors made him out to be. He made me hate him yet at the same time crave the unyielding passion he offered behind closed doors. Could I betray my father? More importantly, could I betray my husband?
 
Amir
King Mateo Rojas made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for weapons for a war he was preparing for, not only did he offer me millions, but his daughter as a sign of good faith. He introduced Princess Luciana to me and my brother’s and I knew my claim was staked on the fiery beauty.
I was known as one of the meanest crime lords in all of Africa and South America. I was a man who offered no mercy and no second chances. There were many rumors about me and my family and I let them exist so others would fear us all that much more.
Luciana tames my demons and takes away the darkness. I’m not sure I necessarily like how she makes me feel. Perhaps that’s why I keep her locked up like an animal and use her at my will, my mercy. She is a possession her father gave me freely to use as I saw fit.
What happens when Luciana tells me the real reason her father offered her up for marriage? Can I trust her with my own secrets and the two of us work together to bring her father and The Rojas Crime Family down.

Blurb:

Unwanted. Three boys grew up in an orphanage, abandoned and despised by those who should have taken care of them. They were starved, hit, and abandoned for years.

But they are men now. Gentlemen, so to speak. A little broken, a little damaged and a little destroyed by life, but they hide it behind toughness, money, amazingly folded cravats and, in some cases, illegal activities. Their main strength is each other: they are best friends, partners in crime, a found family.

And then comes the one battle that every gentleman, no matter how brooding, haughty or handsome, must face alone. These are the stories of how they each fight, and lose, the battle against love.

Hooked: Wendy and Lord Darlington

When Wendy Hooke was a little girl, she saved a boy from starvation. The boy, Peter, taught her how to fly. Now the boy is a man, a gorgeous man, and he has forgotten all about her. She watches him take London’s ballrooms by storm, pursued by every designing mama, but Peter doesn’t even glance at her. Because it’s not ‘Peter’ now, it’s Lord Darlington.

Peter hasn’t forgotten the girl who saved his life, but his secrets hold him back. The webs of his secret gang that fights crime on the streets of London are closing in on the greatest criminal of all time, the Viscount Hooke. And Wendy…well, she is his daughter.

Caged: Zella and Pirate Charmont

Zella isn’t crazy. She knows that, but no one else does. And, she has to admit, maybe she does look crazy, locked up here in the madhouse, with hair so long and wild it can practically become a rope.

And it does. One day, she lets her hair down from the tiny window, and someone rudely grabs it like a rope. Like a rope thrown to a drowning man.

“I’m not crazy, you know,” she tells the rugged-looking young man who climbs up, panting as if he is running for his life.

“Sweetheart,” he replies, “I don’t care. If they catch me, I’ll get hanged.”

“Oh. Why?”

“Because, m’ dear. I’m a pirate.”

Seduced: Poppy and Lord Hades

Lord Hades owns a gaming hell that sprawls underneath the city of London like the underworld. It is no secret: the Hell Club is notorious all over Europe. Peers and millionaires travel from Vienna and Paris to enjoy the Turkish baths or play cards with the great political leaders of other countries.

Money and power exchange hands nightly underneath the sparkling ballrooms and gentlemen’s clubs, and no one knows. Until Hades discovers a boy sent to spy on him. But the boy is not a boy.

And she will pay.

Retold includes three dark and sparkling romantic stories inspired by myths, folklore and fairytales, as well as by the glittering world and the roguish gentlemen of Regency London.

They might look like quick, fun reads, but don’t be fooled: these stories are going to break your heart into a million pieces.

About M.C. FRANK

M.C. Frank’s bio:
Welcome to the engrossing world of M.C. FRANK’s books, where characters aren’t going to have an easy time of it: They will find themselves in icy-cold dystopian worlds where kissing is forbidden (among other things), or in green forests ruled by evil Sheriffs. If they’re in Jane Austen’s England, they have to be running away from a traumatic childhood, or if they are in our contemporary world, they’re scared they’ll die before they have finished high school. That sort of thing.

Don’t worry, though, she knows we all need a little hope and joy in our lives, so there’s a good dose of those as well in everything she writes.

M.C. Frank (writer, reader, designer, physicist and teacher, to name a few) has been living in a world of stories ever since she can remember (that’s before she knew how to write). She started writing them down when she could no longer stand the characters in her head screaming at her to give them life, and while those first scribblings weren’t exactly good (nor were they books, although she insisted on calling them that), they were enough for her to discover her passion in life.

She got her university degree in physics a few years ago (yes, she’s like Sheldon, only a bit crazier!) and is now free to pursue her love of reading and writing, as well her free-lance job as editor-in-chief. She lives with her ‘dude’ in a home filled with candles, laptops and notebooks, where she rearranges her overflowing bookshelves every time she feels stressed.

Which is often, since (as you might have noticed) she doesn’t pick the easiest subjects for her novels.

Almost two years had passed since my best friend was torn from my life, and I was finally starting to live again. When history almost repeated itself, it all came crashing down and I found myself in Tucker’s arms again.
The problem is, the only man I had ever loved hated me, but with each day that we fought our feelings, we were drawn back to one another.
After all I had done to hurt him in the past, would Tucker ever be able to forgive me and accept the love that had been dormant since the day I broke our hearts?

These were the demands of an MC president.
I was good with that. I had dedicated my life to the club and the club alone.
It was the only way I could face losing the only woman I’d ever loved.
 
But as fate would have it, I’d been given a second chance with her.
 
There was only one problem.
Another woman had caught me under her spell.
 
Two incredible women.
One impossible choice.

Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

But then the unthinkable happened, and I found myself back in my father’s evil clutches. He wants me to do something nefarious, and if I don’t agree, he’s going to send me straight to the Block, a human trafficking auction ran by my father. I’m done being used, and I’m determined to bring him down, even if it kills me. My only hope is to join forces with de Duivel, the only man capable of bringing my father down. But I don’t know if I can trust him to keep me safe, and I’m afraid that if we don’t succeed, Davet will suffer the same fate as my last husband, and I’ll always be nothing more than my father’s evil pawn.

JP’s childhood was the definition of dysfunctional, but he has a sweet set up as an adult. He bounces around, working at his siblings’ businesses, steers clear of relationships, and plans to stay child-free for life. Few commitments and even fewer responsibilities; just how he likes it. He cruises along with no shortage of women to warm his bed and fun times to be had until the universe drops a seven-month, fifteen-pound bomb in his lap.
Hannah doesn’t have a rebellious bone in her body, which is why she’s stunned to find herself traveling to Vermont to spy on her infant niece’s father. After the recent passing of her sister, Hannah’s parents are struggling and failing to deal with their new reality. They beg her to help them get custody of their grandchild in any way possible, no matter how unsavory.
When Hannah arrives in Vermont, she doesn’t find a neglectful, degenerate father as her parents predicted. Instead, she encounters JP, a man whose world was rocked to its core. Before long, Hannah is suffocating under a mountain of lies and falling hard for a man her family despises.
JP has so much to learn, but with Hannah’s help, he’s finding responsibility isn’t the dirty word he made it out to be. Instead, the more time he spends with her, the more he wonders what else he’s misjudged, like relationships.
Hannah is thrilled to help JP muddle his way through single parenthood and explore their developing feelings. But with so many secrets and challenges between them, how can this end in anything but heartbreak?
