Thug by Leslie Georgeson 💕 Book Blitz, Freebie Offer and $25 Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Mafia Romance)



How do I choose between love and family?

She’s the wife of my archenemy. My chance for revenge. Could she also be my heart’s salvation?

—–

I have three simple rules. Put family and the bratva first. Show no weakness. Never bend.

Then Siena Russo explodes into my life, knocking me off my feet. And I forget all my rules. Siena is witty and kind with an inner strength befitting a Mafia queen. My dream girl in the flesh.

It is all smooth going but for one giant hurdle. She is the wife of my archenemy, Salvatore Romano. Prince of the Italian Mafia.

Siena is in a fix, but if I help her, I will violate the Mafia truce. Crossing the ruthless Romanos means certain death.

Sal wronged me once, and I was forced to let it go. To protect my family and keep the peace.

Now is my chance to get even. Save Siena and steal Sal’s wife. Revenge is sweet but complicated. How do I choose between love and family?


“There’s movement at the gate,” Adrik announced, drawing all our gazes. 

We were parked across the street from the address Siena had texted me, having only just arrived moments ago. 

We’d shown up just in time. 

Sal’s property was fenced like most of the fancy homes in the area, and while we watched, the gate opened, and two vehicles emerged: a Tahoe and a sedan. 

My gut said Siena was in that Tahoe, probably with Sal. 

“Follow them,” I ordered. “But stay back. Don’t let them see you.” 

Once the vehicles rounded the corner, Adrik pulled away from the curb and followed. 

It was nearly five a.m. now, and the streets were empty, which made it easy to follow them. We stayed back so they wouldn’t get suspicious, and about fifteen minutes later, they turned into the Romano estate in Beverly Hills. 

Dom’s gaze darted to mine. “If she’s in one of those cars and they take her inside, our chances of getting her out are slim.”

Enzo Romano’s property was like a fortress, much like the Popov mansion. He had thugs guarding it from all sides, not to mention the security fence that we would have to get past without alerting the guards. Odds of us getting inside undetected were slim to none. 

Adrik pulled the car over several houses away and waited for my instructions. 

I ground my jaw. We didn’t have enough manpower with us tonight to take on the Romanos. We shouldn’t even be here. I had put everyone in this car in danger just by being this close to the Romano estate. To venture any closer would be suicide. His men shot first and asked questions later. 

I dragged a hand down my face. We had no choice but to back off for now. We would have to wait for another opportunity to free Siena. 

“Fuck!” I slammed my fist into the back of Timofey’s seat, startling him. “Fuuuuck!”

Tension filled the car. We all watched in silence as the gate opened and the two vehicles drove inside the property.   

I bowed my head, not wanting to admit defeat. Hundreds of scenarios flashed through my mind of ways Sal might torture Siena. In that moment, I was reminded of what the son-of-a-bitch had done to Cara, and my stomach heaved. 

Be strong, Siena. Don’t let him break you. I’ll get you out of there as soon as I can. 

“Now what, boss?” Adrik asked, eyeing me in the rearview mirror. 

Heaving out a long sigh, I lifted my head. 

“Now, we wait.”

Jealousy. Betrayal. Family secrets.

Appearances are everything in my family. We are the Strongs. Fame is our birthright. Music flows through our veins in a continuous harmony. Flaws are unacceptable.

When my parents got a good look at the freak they’d created, I was hidden away, my existence wiped out.

Until they discovered my secret.

Now I had something they wanted.

Taking it from me didn’t faze them. They believed they were entitled.

I was just a boy, unable to fight back.

So I did the only thing I could.

I vanished.

That was nine years ago.

Now they are back, and they want something from me again.

They send the sexy and oh-so-tempting Mia Bennett to persuade me, and I’m helpless to resist her.

Mia seems innocent in my family feud, but is she really?

I can’t be sure.

All I know is she makes me feel alive again. She gives me the courage to just be me. She’s the new inspiration behind my music, my heart’s own melody.

But something dark and twisted lurks close to home, and leaves me questioning who is friend and who is foe.

Now I am forced to make a decision that could well break me.

How far am I willing to go for the woman I love?

***The books in this series contain strong language and adult situations. Recommended for readers ages 18 and up***


  


Pakhan. Head of the mafia. That is my destiny. Nothing can stand in my way. I won’t allow it.

Until she shakes things up. Willow Anthony. I didn’t even know she existed until her voice floated through the trees, singing a melody that captivated me. I had to meet her.

Willow’s not what I expected. She’s shy. Sweet. Innocent. A challenge. I crave her as much as I long to be the king of the entire Russian bratva. I want her to sing for me, and me alone. I want to make music with her in a very carnal way.

She has no place in my world. But now it’s too late.

I have to choose: Willow or the brotherhood.

To save her, I must become what I swore never to be.

How can I protect her and not betray my family?

I can’t.

The music will stop.

And I will lose it all.

He's running from a past intent on destroying him. Only she has the power to save his soul.

Some scars mar the flesh, while others poison the soul. Big-screen actor Sebastian Wolfe suffers from the latter. Recently retired from acting, he now runs a veterinary hospital and small animal rescue in small-town Idaho, hiding a horrendous past—and a shameful secret.

When Emily Montgomery accepts an intern position at Scar Animal Rescue, she has no idea she will be working for the famous actor. She soon discovers Sebastian is not the man the world sees. An intuitive person, Emily senses the pain within him. But how can a man with such kindness and generosity toward animals be surrounded by so much darkness?

With a relentless monster from his past intent on punishing him, Sebastian must accept Emily’s help as he learns to push the demons from his soul.

But if he trusts Emily, will it save him—or destroy them both?

NOTE: All books in this series are loosely connected stand-alones. Each book is a full-length novel with a conclusion (no cliffhangers at the end). Due to some adult language and situations, the books in this series are recommended for readers ages 18 and up.
