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?

The second time, I drank a bottle of his most expensive cognac, which I’d never be able to afford on my own.

 

And the third time… well, he caught me stealing from him.

 

Stealing from the head of the Irish Mafia wasn’t smart. But then I never claimed to be.

 

Now I owed him a debt… a big one. And it couldn’t be settled with money, or favors.

 

He only wanted one thing…

 

Me. Submitting to his darkest demands. Once the debt is settled he’ll let me go.

 

Except he is forbidden to me. Because if I were smart… I’d figure out another way to repay my best friend’s father.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Delta James, a new standalone dark Syndicate Masters romance.

 

I am a pawn in a dangerous game. One he will take by any means.

Years ago an alliance was made between the Tiamat Syndicate and the Northern Lights Coalition. I was promised to Gunnar, the head of the Blood Eagle Syndicate. Our families believed an alliance was the only way to prevent all out war.

With my father dead, my brother Joshua refuses to force me into Gunnar’s bed until the he needs to forge an alliance with Gunnar against a common enemy-the Bratva.

I am a pawn to both sides. So I ran. I ran as far as I could to get away from him. I should have known better… Lions love to hunt.

Once he catches me he expects me to play by his rules. He thinks he can bend me to his will. It would be so much easier to fight him if we weren’t fated mates.

When the Bratva attack, can I use the war to escape him, or will I join him in the battle?

Alliance is a seductively dark paranormal romance in the Syndicate Masters, Northern Lights series. It is an arranged marriage romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers.

 

Buy Alliance today if you love a little bite in your mafia romance.

 

Excerpts:

1

Joshua looked at the leash and collar in Colin’s hand. “Let me guess, glad I sent a few of the lads with you?” He took Marley’s shoulders and pulled her close in his embrace. “I’m sorry, Marley.”

“I’m not,” she said looking him square in the eye and bringing her knee up into his groin before slamming her foot back down on his instep.

As Joshua howled in pain, Marley roared in defiance and called forth her lioness, shifting and springing away from the lot of them. She could hear Joshua shouting orders as his men shifted and began to chase her down. She didn’t plan to make it easy, nor did she mean to go down easily.

 

2

“There is nothing to be negotiated,” growled Gunnar beginning to lose his patience. “Your father needed the help of the Blood Eagle Syndicate, and we gave both blood and money. Your sister was promised to me as part of the bargain that was struck. She is my mate and I have come to claim her.”

“I’m afraid that won’t be possible.”

Gunnar whirled around to confront Knight. “Why not?”

“It would seem my dear sister has decided to extricate herself from the mess left by our father and is no longer at Arsalan. The note she left for me indicates she has no plans to ever return.”

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.

Her stories are one hundred percent original, do not contain fluffy plots or virgin brides, and wring every last emotion from readers to leave them with a satisfied smile.

In true roundabout fashion, they came back to the States, settled in South Carolina’s lowcountry, putting down southern roots and pursuing their arty endeavors. Tale spinner and character diviner, Rie is a lover of sleep, wine, and rude memes often involving either Disney characters or Winnie the Pooh. She is raising two teen daughters along with an entire brain full of unruly characters. Rough-talking alpha men? Rie has that on tap. Stubborn sassy heroines? You bet. Smoldering sex scenes that’ll set your Kindle on fire? Check, check, check. Keep a fan handy, you’ll need it.

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.
