Title: Possessing the Princess
Series: Global Outlaws Syndicate World
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Dark Mafia Standalone
Release Date: May 20, 2022

ARIS
I want her.
And what I want, I take.
She isn’t the first thing in my life that’s off limits.
But she will be the last.
 
ROYA
I didn’t know The Lykos was his nightclub, not at first. I didn’t realize the sexy half Greek half Russian man was the criminal mastermind behind Dubai’s thriving mafia underworld either. I’m not even supposed to be roaming around on my own, outside of the royal palace where my father the Sheikh rules my very existence, but I just can’t resist the lure of dancing . . . the lure of that man, Aris Volkov.
 
After one night at The Lykos—when the club comes under attack by my deranged uncle—I’m forced from one captivity to another. That’s right. Aris takes me. He kidnaps me. He despises my father as much as I do, and he’s just ruthless enough to use me to get what he wants . . . absolute vengeance.
 
I used to fantasize about Aris but now I’m determined to hate him. Easier said than done. He treats me like his own personal plaything, introducing me to delights of the flesh. He doesn’t care that I’m a royal princess. That my modesty has been protected all my life. That I have zero experience with men and I’m embarrassingly out of my depths.

Series: Broken Crowns Trilogy #2
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark PNR/Fantasy
Release Date: August 18, 2022
Cover Design: Maria Spada
 
Oh, how the mighty fall.
A merciless bloodthirsty king.
A broken, rage-filled queen.
A formidable match volatile enough to set the world ablaze.
What was once her home is now a rotting carcass of wreckage.
Those who pledged their loyalty have all been slaughtered or chosen to stand against her.
Something sick and sinister watches from the shadows, waiting for the perfect opportunity to bleed her dry.
And the one who can stop it all refuses to do so unless she submits to him entirely.
They weren’t prepared for her to be crazier, more ruthless, and deadlier than all of them.
They underestimated how far someone with nothing left to lose would go to gain back everything that was stolen.
She would sell her soul to the highest bidder.
She’d strike bargains with the worst kind of monsters.
The coveted crown was a dark and lonely thing, but without a kingdom or a name, it’s all she had left to claim.
Bow to the queen and let mayhem reign.

When she’s not slaying words she’s somewhere in the sunshine state, happily taking life one curve-ball at a time.

The Strays – Sleeping With Sirens
Bully – Shinedown
Addicted – Saving Abel
 
 
When she’s close to the bathroom, I glance around to see if anyone is watching before grabbing her around the waist and pulling her into the first VIP room I can find. She screams, but the loud thumping of the bass covers any noise she makes.

I pull her further into the pitch-black room and force her body against the wall. I can smell her perfume. So fucking intoxicating.

“Please let me go,” she begs as I keep her pinned in place. I like the fear in her voice. I like that’s she scared right now.

I don’t say anything as I push her chest harder against the wall. Her head is turned to the side, and I can feel her tears as I bring my face down. I smile, knowing I made her cry. I want to make Ray cry. I want her to feel what we felt all those years.

“I love it when you cry,” I whisper. I’m certain she wouldn’t remember my voice, and if she did, I’m sure Ray has forgotten by now.

“What do you want?” she asks, her voice hitching when she does.

“To see you cry,” I tell her.

“Please, let me go,” she begs. I move closer, pressing my body against hers harder now. There’s no letting her go now.

Blurb:

The Kings are powerful.

They’re ruthless.

And they own me.

When my mother dies of an overdose, I’m forced to live with an aunt that hates me. Her desire to stay close to the elite pushes me right into the domain of the Kings. Kieran, Heston, and Xavier.

These guys don’t just rule the high school, everyone seems to bow down to them. No body crosses them and lives to talk about it, or so I’ve heard. Their families are the richest in this city. In fact, they are so powerful that even the city authorities bend to their will.

They don’t trust me because of where I come from. My uncle was one of the founding families, along with their fathers, and he betrayed them. Now they believe that I am the enemy.

There’s an old saying, the truth will find you out. How true thatstatement is. My family’s secrets are revealed, and I discover that my entire life has been full of lies and deceit. Those secrets also have the power to take everything from me. But will this new revelation be enough to earn their trust, or will it destroy everything I hold dear?

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.
