I’ve done everything right.
Playing the part of the demure famiglia daughter,
And hiding my pain beneath makeup and pretty dresses.
But marrying a man ten years my senior?
Whose words cut like knives,
And lips taste like poison.
This is the one thing I can’t do.
I’ve done nothing right.
I’m not a virtuous man,
I balance on the line between light and dark.
My past is littered with sins,
Each of them is haunting me.
I’m not worthy of the angel with long hair and hazel eyes.
And yet, I’d burn the city to the ground to hold her in my arms.
What’s a sinner to do?
This is the first book in my Sinners of New Orleans series and I think it really sets the scene of the famiglia war thats kicking off in NOLA. Lana and Naz are an unlikely pair each weighted down by family expectations. I really wanted to encapsulate that feeling of falling in love and ignoring the rest of the world and I think these two are a perfect representation.
“Alliance” is the first book in the Sinners of New Orleans series. It is a full length forbidden/arranged mafia romance with spicy scenes and an HEA. This series is best read in order. While Lana and Naz’s story will have an HEA and conclude in Alliance, there is an overarching plot that will continue in future books.
Alliance contains themes of violence, explicit language, depression, and suicidal ideation. Please take caution when reading.
