Title: The Ties We Break
Series: A Beautifully Brutal Book #2.5
Author: Emma Luna
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2022
Cover Design: Pretty in Ink Creations
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?

“The chemistry between Reagan and Braden almost melted my iPad …HOT! A great addition to the series.”

“With great characters, a fast-paced storyline and the perfect mix of heat and danger. Taking the Fight was a story I could not put down!”

5 KNOCKOUT STARS!! OMG….I was on the edge of my seat with the suspense through this story. You must read this book and series.”

L.P. Dover, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who brought you the tantalizing Gloves Off series, presents Gloves Off – Next Generation. This brand-new saga of interconnected standalones unites new characters with beloved originals in dark and sexy stories laced with suspense!
Two months ago, everything changed. The enemy no longer feels the need to sulk in the shadows. Instead, he hides in plain sight and prepares his attack… against Reagan Jameson.
Reagan knew this day would come. She proudly holds the featherweight title and is known as one of the sexiest female fighters in MMA history. She can handle her own, and that’s exactly what she plans to do with Nikolai. Unfortunately, things aren’t as they were before. When given an offer she can’t refuse, Reagan is well aware nothing good will come of it.
They promised her power, prestige, and money… a world full of intrigue and dangerous desires. Not being able to resist the allure, she gives in and becomes a pawn in their game. She’s able to fool those closest to her into believing everything is okay… except for Braden Emerson.
Braden’s reputation as one of the toughest fighters in the circuit hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, it’s his skills that get him lured into the pit of danger. While he vows to keep Reagan safe no matter the cost, his desire for her is used against him. As passion ignites between the pair, they must work together if they hope to survive.
Fighting for a title is one thing, but nothing beats the stakes of fighting for love. This is one TKO that could cost them everything.
 
 
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Everything’s sweeter in the South has always been her mantra and she lives by it, whether it’s with her writing or in her everyday life. Maybe that’s why she’s seriously addicted to chocolate.
 
Dover has written countless novels in several different genres, including a children’s book with her daughter. Her favorite to write is romantic suspense, but she’s also found a passion in romantic comedy. She loves to make people laugh which is why you’ll never see her without a smile on her face.

Blurb:

These monsters rule the city… and I’ve become their newest obsession.

 

I’ve been caught in a war between the three most powerful gangs in the city… and I’m trapped with the most dangerous of them all.

 

The Kings.

 

With each passing day, they lurk closer, their darkness pulling me a bit deeper. They push me, demanding everything I have when my world is falling apart.

 

Chaos is about to break out, and I’m finding myself craving the men who could just as easily break me. Ruin me. Kill me.

 

I vow to escape, but I’m losing myself to this world of lust and war.

 

The Kings of Eden don’t have hearts. So they want mine…

Harper A. Brooks lives in a small town on the New Jersey shore. Even though classic authors have always filled her bookshelves, she finds her writing muse drawn to the dark, magical, and romantic. But when she isn’t creating entire worlds with sexy shifters or legendary love stories, you can find her either with a good cup of coffee in hand or at home snuggling with her furry, four-legged son, Sammy.

She writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

Book 3

The time—early 1980s.

The place—Popondetta, Papua New Guinea.

My name is Quinn Masterton and I’m the youngest brother of three.

Refer to me as the baby and I suggest you start running.

Connor, the eldest is Don of our family business – The Kumul Cartel.

Jake is in the middle and the one least likely to jump and ask questions later.

We run a successful drug and gun smuggling operation throughout PNG.

Connor runs the entire organisation.

Jake is solely responsible for deals done from Rabaul in New Britain and his last visit there…

You can read his story in the previous book.

Back to me…

I was everywhere, but nowhere within the family.

I needed something for myself, and Connor finally granted me the opportunity.

But…

As in life, nothing is easy.

The first meeting went down the drown when I needed to step in for Jake.

The second..

I was almost there.

So close.

Then, a tiny slip of a woman, crashed into my life…literally.

A secretive society.

Murder.

Torture.

Voodoo.

Crazy suspicions.

Meeting Arabella would turn my family’s life upside down.

This is the third and final book in The Kumul Cartel Trilogy

ADDY
I thought the suffocating loneliness of the last two years was bad, but then I was sent to Lakeridge Psychiatric Facility.
On the outside it’s disguised as helpful brochures and friendly doctors who have vowed to help, but the real truth is just below the surface, lurking in the shadows, and haunting my dreams.
At night he comes–taunting and abusing me. Bending me to his will, and making sure no one believes me.
That is until Dylan.
I can touch him and see him, but if my mind is capable of creating such horrors like my nightmares, can I trust that he’s real?
DYLAN
I’m no stranger to breaking rules and living on the edge. I guess it kind of comes with the territory of being a rockstar. But when I’m forced to attend Lakridge to serve my time and get sober, I’m met with the one thing I know I can’t have.
Addy.
I know we don’t have a chance, not unless I want to get kicked out of here, made to finish my sentence in a proper prison. Still, something about her calls to me.
There is more to the marks on her pale skin than the doctors say, and her nightmares seem to be a little too real.
Digging deeper into the madness, I’m left to question, can nightmares really leave scars? Or am I becoming mad too?

Every woman in my life has let me down, hurt me, or abandoned me. Which is why the only female I hold close to my heart is Hallie– my daughter.
But being a single father comes with certain challenges, so I hire a nanny.
Someone who can do her hair, tell her stories, and be the motherly figure she doesn’t have.
When Mia starts, I know she’ll be perfect, but I have to keep her at arm’s length. I tell myself it’s because I don’t know how to fix her broken soul from the past she’s so desperate to hide, but in reality, it’s more.
The way I feel about her scares me. She’s beautiful, feisty, and so incredibly kind.
Although I try to deny it, I can feel myself falling for her. And when our pasts collide with the present, we have no choice but to face our demons together and fight.
Will I be able to finally put my fears aside and find true happiness?
