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?

Deadly Sins: an organized crime thriller by Laura Read

DEADLY SINS is a dark crime thriller with a twisted love story at its heart.

Angela Balanescu, daughter of an organized crime boss, yearns to leave the town in which she grew up, instead of using drink and sex as escapism. Her father feeds on power, solely focused on how he can gain more territory. Vincent, her father’s lieutenant, feels no remorse torturing and killing those who betray the family.

When Angela develops feelings for corrupt detective Sean, she wonders whether she can learn to trust him and put a life of crime behind her. But Vincent wants her for himself, and she is drawn deeper into family politics. Soon she is plotting to kill her father’s partner, and she is forced to choose between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
DEADLY SINS is an organized crime thriller/romantic suspense, which explores the sexism that can permeate families and how sin can influence us all. I wanted to write something dark that crosses genres and focuses on a female protagonist who wants more power. My protagonist, Angela, feels powerless because she's the boss's daughter, and she uses drink and sex to escape her life. She falls for a corrupt detective and faces a choice between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life. It's similar to THE SOPRANOS but told mainly from a female perspective.

Fangsters: Clan of the Jersey Boys by Ryan Field


At a glance, Anton Pagano looks and sounds just like any other twenty-something. He lives in a mansion in northern New Jersey with his mom and dad, and he’s never had to worry about anything other than his wardrobe, his latest new car, and the secret love affair he’s been having for years. However, Anton has more than just the love affair to hide: he belongs to a Sicilian vampire mobster clan that migrated to New Jersey in the late 1800s.
When Anton’s dad, the head of their clan, decides it’s time for Anton and his vampire cousin Digger to get into the “family business,” Anton’s not all that excited about it. Until he meets a sweet, young human named Leo on his first night at work. They wind up spending the rest of the night together, but things get even more complicated when they bring Anton’s secret vampire lover into the picture a few weeks later.

After a bloody battle with werewolves, and the beginning of what Anton predicts will be an all-out war between two vampire mob clans in New Jersey, Anton and his secret vampire lover decide it’s time to consider turning Leo into a vampire so all three of them can be together for eternity. But thanks to fate, nothing is as simple as it looks, and they wind up doing the one thing they ever wanted to do to Leo as a last resort.

This book came about as a combination of my fascination with organized crime syndicates and paranormal gay erotic romance. I grew up in the places where the book takes place, and always wanted to write about them. And Jersey boys can be very attractive.
