Let me know if I’ve forgot anything.

Title: Alexius
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.

Author: Erin Trejo
Genre: Dark Romance, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 29, 2022
 
 
One night was all it should have been. A night of torment for her. Payback for how she treated us in high school.
What I didn’t count on was she would like it. As if I switch is flicked inside her, she begins to thrive on fear.
So I dare her to get to know me, and to my surprise, she accepts. However, secrets threaten to destroy everything. Once she discovers what I’m hiding, she will leave me for good.
I won’t let that happen, but can I stop her?

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?

About the Author

****USA TODAY BEST SELLING AUTHOR****

I was born in Manly on the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Australia and grew up in the west after we moved there to help my brother’s eczema which was made worse by salt air. I now reside in the beautiful sunny state of Queensland when we are not travelling.

One of the highlights of my life was being accepted into Nursing just before my 16th birthday. It had been a long-time dream and one which encompassed 37 years of my life. Along with nursing, being married to my very own book boyfriend, a Naval Officer, for almost 48 years, and posted in numerous places, gave me experiences which I have written into many of my books.

We enjoy traveling the country with our Caravan/RV and 17 young Jack Russell called Gemma-Jean.

My books are in various genres – Western Historical Romance-both steamy and sweet, Contemporary Romance-steamy and sweet, Male/Male, Australian Outback and City Romance. I also have one menage and one paranormal romance along with two children’s books. As I said earlier, I have a rather overactive imagination.

I hope you will pick up one of my books and when you close the cover on one of my stories it will be with a satisfied sigh.
