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?

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: Enzo DeLuca
Series: Savage Bloodline
Author: M’Renee Allen
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2022
Don Enzo DeLuca is on a rampage.
He’s determined to find out which family member betrayed them. That mission sends Enzo down a dark path of bloodshed and tears. However, there’s a light waiting for him at the end of the tunnel, and her name is Eve. Kidnapping her is the best decision he’s ever made. Having her close calms his inner demons and makes him yearn for a future he never thought possible. Though he promised to release her when the dust settles, he’s changed his mind. What the don wants, the don gets.
And the don wants Eve.
Now and forever.

Though he’d ordered her not to move, she couldn’t help taking a step back, matching him step for step until her back bumped into the shower wall. There was nowhere else she could run.

He stood toe to toe with her. Droplets of water dripped from his hair, splashing onto her breasts, causing her body to tingle in ways it shouldn’t be tingling. Against her thigh rested his length. Eve swallowed.

“It seems the gazelle has been trapped by the lion,” he whispered, voice low, deep, dark.

It took her a moment to find her voice. But even when she spoke, her voice trembled a bit.

“This gazelle bites back,” she warned.

He smiled. “This lion likes being bitten.”

Title: Wanting the Fight: a Gloves Off – Next Generation Novel

Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Sports Romance
Tropes: MMA Fighters, Actress, Mafia, Friends to Lovers, One Night Stand, Secret Pregnancy
Release Date: October 25, 2022
Cover Design: RBA Designs
Photographer: Sara Eirew Photography
Illustrated by: FuriousFotog
From New York Times bestseller L.P. Dover comes a story of passion, revenge, and twisted manipulation.
Ethan Jameson has it all. He’s one of the hottest fighters in the middleweight circuit and is loved by women everywhere. It seems nothing can stand in his way… except for the dragon tattoo that marks him as a target. He knew the day would come when Nikolai Michelson would seek out his vengeance. He even fooled himself into believing he was ready to fight back… until a one-night stand changes everything.
Peyton Emerson; Hollywood starlet and America’s sweetheart. She’s always wondered what it would be like to have Ethan to herself. After a drunken weekend in Vegas, she got the pleasure of finding out firsthand. But being with her comes at a cost. Peyton knows all too well how the paparazzi tear couples apart with their lies.
Still, there’s no denying that their one-night stand sparked something inside of them—a need for one another they can’t quell. Unable to fight their attraction, they work to keep their relationship a secret. Unfortunately, their efforts aren’t enough to keep an enemy from finding out and using that information to manipulate them both. When Peyton and Ethan are approached with a grisly demand, they have no choice but to accept. Those they love will pay the horrific price if they try to refuse…
 
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.

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.”

Series: Cavaleri Brothers Series
Author: Lilian Harris
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
Tropes: Dark Friends to Lovers, Mafia Romance, Captives, Virgins, Emotional Trauma, Slow Burn
Release Date: August 13, 2022
He was the boy held captive in the basement. I was the girl who knew.
But I never told a soul. I had innocent lives to protect. And this was the only way.
He was my friend first. My lover second. We wanted to be free, to make a life together. But that was a dream we knew would never come true.
Prisoners of my ruthless father, we could not escape the horror we were forced to endure-until I drew a weapon on the only boy who ever loved me.
And as they drag me away, screaming his name, I hope he’s still breathing.
Because our story, it’s not over yet.
Author note: This story contains dark themes and scenes depicting SA.

“Easily the best book in the entire series. It’s intense and heartbreaking … it’s worth every single emotion.” ~caffe.and.books

“What are you thinking about?” he asks, rubbing his thumb over the top of my hand, my head lying over his shoulder.

“That I have ugly hair.”

“What?” He jerks his head back in an instant. “Who gave you that idea?” The way he stares, it’s not with anger at me, but for what I just said.

I shrug, avoiding his gaze by staring at my bare feet. After a few seconds, he snakes a hand under his pillow and retrieves something. In his palm is the notepad I once gave him.

But as I look at it, as he turns to open a page, I let out a small gasp, my stomach flipping all over again.

I can’t stop staring.

My breathing goes ragged.

I’m there on the page, in a long wispy dress, my hair caught in the wind, skipping among flowers, butterflies floating around me, like he knew that’s how he makes me feel. But that’s silly, of course, there’d be butterflies in a meadow. That’s what this is. He continues to turn, page after page, and I find more of me on every single one.

He’s been drawing me this whole time? Why?

He gazes straight at me, the crooked smile reaching the far corner of his mouth. “Your hair reminds me of the sun, and the sun is beautiful.”

My heart flutters in my chest, tears growing within my eyes. And his face, the one that barely ever smiles anymore, grins so wide for me now. “Did you just call me beautiful?” I whisper with a thread of shock, because there’s no way he said that.

He raises a shoulder with a smirk. “I may have.”

My mouth spreads into a smile of my own, those butterflies in my stomach flying higher. And my head, it falls right over his shoulder, his arm draping around my back. “I think you’re kinda beautiful too.”

With a deep sigh, his head slants over mine and we stay that way until it’s time for me to go, wishing I didn’t have to.

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.
