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?

Title: His Wife
Series: Dark Sovereign Series #2
Author: Bella J.
Genre: Dark Romance/Mafia Romance
Release Date: August 17, 2022
 

 
I am no longer the stray he picked up off the street. I am…His Wife.
 
Alexius Del Rossa made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
A temporary arrangement. One that would benefit us both.
Be his wife for six months so he can solidify his legacy, and I walk away with the security of having the Del Rossa name.
 
Now I realize that it’s no longer that simple—not while his every command bends my will and entices me to obey.
 
We’ve become each other’s poison—a toxic mix of his wicked touch and my dark desires.
By day I’m the woman who walks by his side, and by night I’m the toy who kneels at his feet.
He’s given me a taste of how it feels to indulge without limits, a glimpse of what life would be like as the queen of his empire.
 
But I can’t ignore the warnings. The subtle stir of whispers that nothing is as it seems.
 
Even though Alexius helped me conquer my demons once…I’m afraid my husband might just be the real monster I should fear.
 

Each time he touches me, I feel it deeper, its effect more profound. It digs deep into my soul, penetrating every wall I have ever built. I’m weak against it, unable to fight the descent into oblivion with him, lost forever, and God knows I never want to be found. Not as long as I’m with him.

At night in bed, just the feel of his breath against my skin has my blood instantly rushing to the surface, heat accelerating through my body, causing my head to spin with the promise of pleasure he delivers every single time.

I’ve never been one to play with fire, yet with him, I crave to burn. I pray for my destruction if it means I can find my ruin in his palms, his fingers, his mouth, his body. I never imagined that I’d one day find myself in the arms of a man whose name once sent shivers down my spine. Now, his name ignites a spark—no, a raging inferno that makes my body ache for him.

Alexius.

Alexius Del Rossa.

My husband.

The man I vowed to hate only to fall into the snake pit where my heart now only beats for him. I am his. I want only him. Every second spent with him is one moment closer to my undoing. I know it. I can feel it in my soul. Alexius would be the end of me.

 
 
 
★★★★★ Alexius Review from TDC Book Reviews – “This was a highly entertaining and addicting story that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.”
 
★★★★★ Alexius Review from caffe.and.books – “Intense, wicked and suspenseful goodness, I couldn’t read it fast enough yet I didn’t want it to end.”

Title: DEX
Series: The O’Sullivan Brothers #3
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Dark Irish Mafia Romance
Release Date: August 1, 2022


DEX
She’s a bossy blue-blooded Bostonian. I’m a hardened mafia man. There’s no friggin’ way our two worlds should collide, but when they do . . . BOOM, CRASH, DESIRE.
Now it’s just my bad freakin’ luck I can’t keep my mind off the snobby babe’s banging body and beautiful eyes. When she runs into trouble and I’m there to rescue her, I’m ready to put my filthy fantasies into action whether she likes it or not.
I get to introduce the prim and proper woman to the heights of wild lust. But the one thing I really lord over her is a big fat dirty secret her dear daddy has kept from her for years.
Yeah, this is gonna be fun.
IVY
God, I could just scream. No man has ever undermined my composure as quickly as Declan “Dex” O’Sullivan.
It’s just my bad luck that I need his help when I come under attack. I find out then he’s much more than just a pain in my backside; he is seriously bad news. But he’s also breathtakingly attractive with his bad boy aura.
He’s conceited, crude, crass . . . and determined to lay claim over me.
When I realize I’ve got more in common with Dex than I ever thought possible, it’s all downhill from there. I’m about to become a pawn in a game of mafias and one more man I never considered an enemy before. Now that my life is on the line, can Dex save me one more time?
Dex is book 3 in the O’Sullivan Brothers Irish mafia series. No cliffhangers. No cheating. Includes sizzling hot scenes. Can be read as a standalone.

As Dex approached, a breathtakingly intense look on the chiseled planes of his face, I hustled backward. 

Still his scent caught up to me—woodsy, masculine, mouthwatering—and my legs bumped against the bed. 

Then his voice emerged, silky deep and seductive. “Wanna know what I did last night when I got home?”

I swallowed harshly, not daring to speak; my voice probably didn’t work anymore anyway.

A dirty smirk crossed his perfect lips. “I got my big cock out and edged it over and over. Got so fucking hard, the veins were throbbing and my balls were heavy.” He roamed ever closer while I remained spellbound by his crude words. “I lubed it up nice and slick, so fuckin’ thick in my hand.”

Guhhh.

A needy-sounding whimper parted my lips, lips I licked before sinking my teeth into the trembling flesh. 

Something hot and tumultuous swept through my belly, making my pulse flutter, spreading liquid fire right to my core. 

“Was thinking about you the whole time,” he murmured in his dark, hypnotic voice. 

My breath expelled in a rush. “Declan . . .”

My inner thighs clenched when his cobalt eyes almost glowed in recognition of a helplessly aroused woman.

“Oh yeah, darlin’. You like that, don’t you? Like me thinking about your smoke-show of a body? Those nice big tits.” 

The tight tingling spread to my nipples, and my body arched as if I was shoving my breasts toward him. 

He was so close now, heat poured off him. 

I dropped down onto the bed when my knees gave out.

Watching me, his lids half-mast, he thumbed open the final buttons on his jeans. 

Pure fire ignited me when he started lowering those faded Levis. He was slow about it, undressing in a teasing sexual manner that had me breathless, pining, panting, aching. 

Then he stood there in nothing but pure white briefs crammed full of thick hard cock. 

My god, he was so large that the waistband couldn’t even lay flat against his body. The briefs looked ready to burst from his enormous erection, his balls two big full orbs crushed into the crotch, the head large and clearly visible because he was leaking so much precum the material became transparent around the thick flared crown. 

I knew without doubt he was telling me the truth, every word of it. He’d wanted me so much he’d stroked that thick hard stalk of flesh thinking about me. 

I’d never experienced such pure, potent passion. Never been on the receiving end of this level of desire, and it made me combust. 

He hadn’t even kissed me. Hadn’t so much as touched me. 

He’d aroused me to a shivering mass simply by speaking of his dark wants in such a deep, guttural voice. 

And still he continued. “You got me so fuckin’ hard just wondering what color your nipples are, Ivy. Fisting my aching cock and kneading my loaded balls and imagining burying my head between your thighs, tasting that juicy pussy.”
