UNRAVELED was the perfect ending to the Dark Sovereign series by Bella J!
Each and every book had me completely enthralled and the conclusion of Alexius and Leandra’s story did not disappoint!” ~ Kris P. Bacon
This book was nail biting, intense, sexy, thrilling and had me on the edge of my seat.
Alexius is 💯 Obsessed and possessive of His Wife.
It’s totally 🔥

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.
Author’s note:
Unraveled is book three of the Dark Sovereign series and should be read after Alexius & His Wife. This is a dark, mature romance and contains situations that some readers might find offensive. This book is the final part of a trilogy and is NOT a standalone.

Genre: Dark Mafia Romance / Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: October 25, 2022
Cover Design: @wonderlandcovers
I’m stranded and in trouble when a chance encounter leads to a night of ecstasy with a stranger. A man with icy blue eyes and hands that work devilish magic on my body.
 
When I find out who he is, I run like hell.
 
Kal Antonov, the son of my father’s nemesis. His name alone is the stuff of nightmares.
 
I’ve been warned to keep away from him and his toxic family, and that suits me just fine. I may be a Bratva princess, but I don’t let it define me.
 
But then Kal crashes back into my life, and I’m drawn like a moth to a flame.
 
His lips speak pretty lies.
His heart holds dark secrets.
 
Enslaved by a legacy he cannot escape, he’s a twisted, beautiful mess. But try as I might, I can’t walk away.
 
He set my soul on fire, and the pain makes me feel alive.
 
Can I put out the flames?
 
And what will become of our baby?

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?

She was a possession I needed, one I craved. But could I keep her? 
 
Brantley 
I was ruthless, violent and took no mercy. My enemies knew I meant business. I was labelled as cruel, cold-blooded and savage. My name and my family’s proceeded me but one woman held my heart; my daughter. She was my entire world and the only thing that mattered…until her, Imogen Chamberlain She was never part of my plan. But she called to a part of me, a part I didn’t know existed. They call me a savage, a destroyer of evil, a creator of chaos, but the moment she came into my world, it all changed. 
I didn’t just have one woman to save, I now had two. 
 
Imogen 
My life was destroyed in one single night. The girl I was no longer exists. I was damaged to the point of no return. Until he found me, Brantley Vincent, and became my saviour. What was it about this man? He made me feel different, he breathed life back into me. He was powerful and dangerous. 
Wanting him is wrong that much I knew but he had a darkness within that calls to me. Feeling anything for a man like him was terrifying but when he shows me just who he really is, there’s no turning back for me because it’s too late, I’ve fallen for the one man I should be running from.

A crate.
Ready to be trafficked on demand.

Do I set her free?

Everything I’ve ever wanted and never knew I needed.
Love.

I refuse to be the submissive I’ve been trained to be.
I need to find my own path and finally be free, but can we find a way for him to keep me when there’s so much at stake?

Reading romance has always been my escape. A different world I can run to when real life gets to be too much. And when I find out my father drank away all the money I’ve inherited and saved, it’s those same romance novels that give me an idea.
I need cash, and I need it fast.
Luckily for me, I have something I know people would pay for.
My virginity.
There’s only one problem…
Declan, the owner of the club where the auction will be held, won’t let me participate until I know what my limits are and what I like.
Feeling like time is running out, I ask him to teach me while still keeping my innocence intact.
It’s a business agreement and nothing else, but his dark, broody expressions and sexy cocky grin are starting to melt all the walls I’ve put in place to remain as professional as possible.
He can’t win me, which means another man will, and I have to protect my heart.
This isn’t a fairy tale, and there is no happily ever after in our future.
Or is there?

“​Emma Luna definitely knows how to masterfully create a killer story that grabs you right from the start and doesn’t let go. Black Wedding is just the perfect dark mafia kidnapped romance story you’ve been looking for.”

𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗳𝗮𝗿 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗴𝗼 𝘁𝗼 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝘄𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗴?
My name is Liam Doughty and I’m a hit man.
All I wanted was to get what I was owed. I carried out the hit as I was hired to do by Irish Mob boss, Vernon O’Keenan. It’s not my fault they found out too late that they had the wrong man. All I wanted was my money. I thought I could kidnap the Mafia Princess Brianna O’Keenan and get the ransom money. What I got was so much more!
Ruthless, feisty, and incredibly sexy, she’s far from the timid daddy’s girl I was expecting. Bree has her own agenda. She wants to dominate in a world ruled by men. I have no doubt she can do it, but she will need my help. Her family rules state only males can run the business. So, Bree proposes we get married. She gets to rule, and I get more money than I ever dreamed of.
Two dark, evil worlds collide when we agree to our black wedding. We will fight each others enemies and come out on top. But what happens if we develop real feelings and we realise our wedding wasn’t all that black?
