Mobster’s Gamble by Amy Rachiele

“I can’t change it. Sometimes you just have to live with it.” ~Anya, Mobster’s Gamble

Carlo Caruso runs the family businesses. The son of mob boss Ennio Caruso, Carlo knows his place and he is up to the challenge of taking care of both the casino business and the not-quite-legal “other” business, all without drawing unwanted attention from the authorities. But when a group of cult extremists, headed by a guy who calls himself Priest, decides to target his family’s casino as a den of sin while attempting to recruit for their cause, Carlo may be in for a challenge he has never been trained for.

Anya was born inside the walls of a cult and has never known anything different. Anya’s beauty has always stirred the wrong kind of attention from the leader and then, when he was gone, his son. Anya has had a complicated and volatile relationship with Priest since she was a little girl toddling around in the religious commune. She knows she deserves better but has no idea how to go about getting it.

Can Carlo and Anya overcome their upbringing and find love?

Accidental Witness (Morelli Family, #1) by Sam Mariano

Vince Morelli.

The closest I ever wanted to get to him was several rows away in English class. We’d never spoken, but of course I heard the stories about his family. I know they’re dangerous. I know he’s dangerous. Vince never had a reason to notice me, anyway—until I inadvertently witnessed his first mob hit.

His family doesn’t believe in leaving witnesses alive, but Vince seems different. He knows the best thing he can do for me is stay away, but something keeps drawing us together. Despite knowing the risks of getting mixed up with him, I can’t resist. Only problem is, Vince is a package deal—you don’t get him without getting swept up in his family’s dark games.

Now entangled with a notorious Chicago crime family, will my life ever be mine again?

**Obligatory trigger warning: This is a mafia romance with dark themes. Sensitive content not recommended for those under 18. **

Targeted Audience: Adult, 21+

Chasing Karma by C. Shell

ChasingKarma_w9258_300
My name is Karma Gallo. If you’ve heard of me, I am sure you’re remembering a story about a police raid, missing person report, or an FBI probe into my family. My father is a Chicago mob boss, and I’m his little principessa—the heir apparent with no life of my own. But in twelve days my life will change. College will do that to a girl. So will the frat boy and the bad boy—two panty-dampening guys throwing around the testosterone. They both want to help me with my panties, but what else do they want? And do I care?

Targeted Audience: 21-60

Author Bio:
I have loved books, especially romance novels, since I was in high school. The happy endings and endless possibilities are alluring and addictive. I currently reside in Texas, and when I am not thinking up my next bad-boy character or dirty-tongued alpha male, I’m working with local rescues helping dogs and being a wife and mother to my wonderful family.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was reading a romance book that I was really into and when the ending came I was furious. Not only did the main characters die off but no one came out of it happy or in love. After that I decided to write my own story and give it an ending that left would leave the reader with a smile on their face.
