Mad Dog by Ophelia Bell πŸ’• Book Blitz & Signed Book Giveaway πŸ’• (Contemporary Romance)

Not even the king of Los Angeles’s underground can stop me from loving Celeste.

Arturo Flores could make me disappear with a snap of his fingers, and nearly did. Limping away from a beatdown when I was seventeen didn’t change the fact that his daughter was worth the pain. Running into her in my tattoo shop twelve years later, she still makes my blood run hot with a glance.

But I’m not that clueless teenage boy anymore. And Celeste isn’t the only one I want.

Leo is a temptation I crave, but in our world, admitting desires like mine could get me killed. The gangbanger is as ruthless as he is beautiful, yet he can’t see anything beyond Celeste. That hurts like hell to admit, but I would sooner die at her crime lord father’s hands than let either of them get hurt.

I’m prepared to let them have each other when Leo comes to me with an offer. One that could connect the three of us in a way that flies in the face of the world we live in. His proposal ignites a fire in my veins. If it fails, we’ll all get burned, but for a man with nothing to lose, I’m just desperate enough to take that chance.

I slip out of Leo’s arms while he sleeps, Toni snuggled up against his back. If there was ever a time for me to get answers from Papa, it’s now. He’s seated at the desk in his office when I enter, sleeves rolled up and his phone to his ear. His eyes have dark circles like he hasn’t slept any more than I have. When he sees me, he ends the call and gets to his feet, rounding the desk in measured strides before pulling me into his arms.

It’s a struggle to hold back tears again, but I’ve done enough crying. It’s time to find out the truth. Pushing back against Papa’s strong chest, I look up into his eyes, my jaw clenched. His lips twitch and his eyes narrow as if he’s read my mind. He nods once.

“What did Amador tell you?” he asks as he releases me and returns to his seat behind the desk.

“Not enough. I forgot that the two of you were business partners. Do you think he was after another partnership with you?”

“No. We did not part on good terms, mija. A partnership between us now would be out of the question, and he knows it. There are other things in play. I believe he is trying to get to me through you. If he reaches out again, or if any of his men contact you, you must come to me first.”

I take a deep breath, bracing myself to begin my interrogation. “He said you weren’t what you seem. Can you tell me what he meant by that?”

He leans forward, eyes fixed on me. “I’ve been in business for a long time. Some of that time was with him as a business partner, but our visions for the future of the business diverged when you were a child. I grew tired of the destruction our endeavors wrought. He had fewer reservations. Money mattered too much for him to let go of the guns and the drugs. But now . . .” He sighs and shakes his head. “He believes I haven’t remained true to my nature. That I’ve sold out. But he has no idea how right he is.”


Three years ago, J.J. Santos, Jr. got himself killed—at least that’s what it said on paper. The DEA resurrected me as Mason Black, forcing me to leave behind everyone I’ve ever card about, including an angel in blue scrubs I can’t seem to get out of my head.

Her name is Dr. Callie Nicolo, and when our paths cross again, I’m in more danger than ever before. But I’m not about to leave her behind this time. Not even if it compromises my identity and my mission.

I’m the kind of man who wants it all. I’ll find a way to pacify the warring cartels on my tail and make up for lost time with the woman of my dreams. Most importantly, I’ll protect what’s mine—the doc who saved my life in more ways than one, and the little girl waiting for me back in Mexico.

There's trouble in paradise.

All we had to do was make it through the weekend. It should've been a breeze. A tattoo convention in CancΓΊn with Toni Valentine, the toughest and sexiest tattoo artist in the world? It was a dream come true.

It was my chance to show her how I'd grown. I came to work for her when I was just some kid from LA and she already had a spread in Maxim and a successful video stream, but over the past three years, we've gotten close. And I had plans for us to get even closer.

But now my plans have changed. Now I've got to prove myself in a different way—by saving her from one of Mexico's most brutal cartels.

I'd do anything for Toni, and that includes walking right into the belly of the beast. And I'm not coming back without her.

All my life I never imagined I might be a pawn in a dangerous game between two crime lords with a decades-old vendetta. But as the secret daughter of one of them, that's suddenly within the realm of possibility. At least unless the three men tasked with my protection manage to do their jobs.

The problem is, one of the three is my boss—a man who owes my father a favor—and the other two are twins I knew as a kid who now handle his security, and who are definitely not kids anymore. Trapped in a tower with these three, I'm beginning to question my sanity.  This high-rise is starting to feel too small for the desires we all seem to share.

My family's ties to a certain set of crime lords is more tangled and volatile than the wires in an IED, but only my own brothers and sister could pull me away from the team of Navy SEALs who I've called brothers for years. 

The black-ops assignment I agree to will be a challenge, one I hope to conquer with as few distractions as possible. Sent deep into the jungles of Belize for training with a covert squad of soldiers, I find myself answering to the most unlikely commander and dealing with an attraction even more confounding than the mission we're about to be sent on.
