Valentina Caponelli is more than a spoiled mafia princess…

She flees her father’s Chicago mansion to start a law office in a small-town in Wisconsin, determined to gain her independence.

Free of her father.
Free of her heritage.
Free of dangerous enemies of the family. 

Then she falls in love with the one man who may cause her more harm than all the rest. 

Officer Ryan Donavan is married to the force…

But the long-legged brunette he cared for after a car crash is all he can think about. 

The problem is, Valentina is the sister of mob boss Roman Caponelli. The one man who definitely does not want his only sibling dating a lawman.

Ryan and Roman have made a tenuous peace, but if Ryan gives in to this passion, that peace will be shattered.

A killer is already roaming the streets, and all hell is about to break loose in Lake Genoa, Wisconsin. Can love really conquer all—or only make matters more deadly?


Ginger Ring is an eclectic, hat-loving Midwestern girl with a weakness for cheese, dark chocolate, and the Green Bay Packers. She loves reading, playing with her cats, watching great movies, and has a quirky sense of humor. Publishing a book has been a lifelong dream of hers and she is excited to share her romantic stories with you. Her heroines are classy, sassy and in search of love and adventure. When Ginger isn’t tracking down old gangster haunts or stopping at historical landmarks, you can find her on the backwaters of the Mississippi River fishing with her husband.

ARC Review of “Escaping Ryan”, by Ginger Ring @GingerRings #EscapingRyanRelease Hosted by: #EnticingJourneyBookPromotions

This was my first book in the Genoa Mafia Series and my first book by Ginger Ring. It will not be my last though. I enjoyed this story and I love Valentina and her need for independence and distance from her family life.

Valentina Caponelli is a strong willed woman who is kind, sweet, and in love with a man that contradicts her family’s line of work. Her father is a Don in the mafia and is very protective of his daughter. She has passed the bar exam and is now a lawyer. Her father paid for her to go to law school and become an lawyer so that she could work for the “family”. The problem is that she doesn’t want to just work for the “family”, she wants to open her own law office and help people who needed her, and she wanted to work on the right side of the law. She moves to Lake Genoa, Wisconsin to open her office and continue to run her restaurant. She will still be near family, her brother Ramon and his wife Madison live there, so she won’t be alone.

Officer Ryan Donovan, a police officer in Lake Genoa. Orphaned as a child, he found himself in trouble quite often until his Uncle told him he needed to settle down and take the right path in life. He’s know Valentina since he was a sophomore in high school and has wanted her since then too. When Valentina moves to Lake Genoa, Ryan finally finds his chance to get to know her and make those wishes of having her as his come true. He doesn’t care who her father is or what her brother thinks, he only cares about her. He feels that he has to get Valentina’s fathers approval to marry her and he knows that it won’t be easy, but he will do anything have Valentina in his life forever.

These are meant to be together and it becomes pretty clear early on that they were made for each other. Even Valentina’s family can see it and she doesn’t face too much trouble when their relationship starts.

If you like stories about mafia men, strong women, mafia princesses, and kind hearted men who will do anything for the woman that they love, then you will want to read this book. There are some very dangerous men in this book, but there are also some very strong and dangerous women as well. This was a great read and I look forward to reading more of this series, and going back to read Ramon and Madison’s stories as well.

DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER. 
You’ll tell me you don’t… but you already think you know what my story’s about.
You have no idea. 
Just like the people sitting in this courtroom. 
She asked for it.  That’s what they keep saying.
And no, it’s not because my skirt was too short or I was drunk at a party. 
It’s nothing like that.  It’s because of what I like and how I like it. 
They’re judging me as I sit in the front row, my eyes drawn to the man on trial. 
If I’d known it was going to end like this, I never would have gone home with him. 
But he’s the type of man I just can’t say no to. 
I wanted to feel his lips kiss down my neck. 
I dreamed of running my fingers along the rough stubble on his jaw.
I craved his hands on me, pinning me down.
I needed to whisper his name in the dark, late at night. 
You still think you know what happened? You don’t. 
He’s innocent and I enjoyed every second I was with him.
Let me tell you my story … all about how I asked for it.

Captive Beauty Ebook Cover

BLURB

Cilla

The Beast had Belle.
Killian Black has me.

How I got here doesn’t matter, even though he says it does. Says it was my choice. He doesn’t get it, though. It wasn’t ever a choice for me.

And now, he’s changing the rules.

The agreement was one month. For thirty days, I’d be his. He’s no longer satisfied with my body alone, though. He wants my soul, too. Wants every part of me. And even though I can pretend I’m safe when I lie beneath him, this man does something to me. Something wicked.

A thing that will break me.

Captive Beauty Teaser 2

Killian

Cilla made the choice. She offered the deal. I just took her up on it. So what if I changed the rules half-way in? I’m not apologizing for it.

See, Cilla and me, we’re the same. She’s dark. As dark as me. Something happened to her. Something bad. It damaged her.

But it’s not a hero she seeks. It’s an avenging angel. A dark knight. That, I can do. I’ll slay her dragons, but it’ll cost her, because in return, I want everything. And I’ll take it.

She’s mine.

Captive Beauty Teaser 1

Author’s note: Captive Beauty is a standalone romance. Think Beauty and the Beast, but twisted and dark in the best, dirtiest ways.

EXCERPT

Prologue 1
Cilla

He’s watching me. I know he is. He has cameras everywhere. Why wouldn’t he have one here? In this, the “special” room? He told me he likes to keep an eye on his things. And that’s what I am. A thing. A possession.
His.
Fucking his.
And today I fucked up.
Today he’ll take it out of my skin.
I shudder with the thought. With the knowledge of what I know is coming.
I’ll fight him. I wonder if he expects me to. Wants me to, even. All I know is I can’t submit to him. I can’t let him break me.
But I am breaking. Little by little.
I wonder if that’s why he took me.
This is a game to him. My life is a game.
I hug my knees to myself. This room is so cold, unlike the others.
I pull the blanket up around me, as much for the cold as for protection. It’s not like I can hide my fear. He knows. He knows the real truth. Knows everything now.
My dress is torn and I’m barefoot. He took my shoes away when he put me here. I guess the heels could be used as a weapon. As if I could somehow manage to overpower him.
I try to swallow but the lump in my throat makes it impossible. I’m scared and I hate it. I don’t want to admit it. Not even to myself.
Tears wet my eyes but before they have a chance to fall, I cover them with my hands and rub them away. I don’t want him to see my weakness. He gets off on it.
I did this. I pushed him. And I can survive this. I fucking have to.
It’s when I’m giving myself that ridiculous pep talk that I hear his footfalls in the hallway. Hear his voice, muffled so I can’t make out what he says. Probably dismissing Hugo, his fucking henchman. Like he needs one.
Every hair on my body stands on end when he slides the key into the lock. When he turns it. And when he pushes the door open, it takes all I have not to crumple. Not to cave.
It takes all I have to stand and ready myself for battle against this beast of a man.

 
Prologue 2
Kill

She claims I took her, but that’s not the whole truth.
I gave her a choice. She made it.
Someone needed to be punished. It didn’t need to be her. She chose this. Chose to be here.
Well, okay, not right here. Not like this. Standing against the far wall, her pretty, jade eyes wide with fear, the delicate skin around them pink from tears.
She’s scared.
And she should be.
She knows what’s coming.
I warned her and she fucked up.
I take her in, pretty in pink. Pretty Priscilla. Even with her hair a mess. Her mascara a black smear across her face. Her dress ruined. She’s scared shitless, but she’s defiant. I like that about her. Like her fire.
It makes my dick hard.
I close the door but don’t bother locking it. No need. She’s not walking out of here tonight. I’ll be carrying her when I’m through.
When I take a step, she makes a sound, something like a frightened little rabbit would make if they could make sound. Her hands are flat against the wall behind her. It’s like she’s trying to melt into it.
“I guess we were always going to end up here,” I say.
She has no response apart from the sudden trembling of her body. She wraps her arms around herself. I can even hear her teeth chatter. She’s too proud to beg though. Beg me for mercy. I respect her for that. But I do like the idea of her on her knees at my feet, clinging to me, pleading with me to spare her this one thing.
I slide off my suit jacket and hang it over the back of the chair. I watch her reflection in the mirror as I take off one cuff link, then the other, and set them both on the table. I’m rolling up my sleeves when I return my attention to her. Her eyes slide to my forearms. My hands.
“I know, Cilla,” I say.
She looks up at me.
“I know everything.”

ARC Review of “Captive Beauty”, by Natasha Knight @givemebooksblog @natashaknight13

Such a tragic story. This one was hard to read, even when I wasn’t sure of what had transpired in Pricilla’s past, but it was a good read. Just the thought of what could have happened was heart breaking. Even with the dark content of the past lives of Pricilla and Killian, this story was well written and a beautiful love story. Killian was Pricilla’s worst night mare, but he turned out to be her savior and hero.

Killian Black, a dangerous man who doesn’t take kindly to people trying to double cross him or steal from him. Jason Hawking is a broken man who gets caught stealing a bag full of cocaine from Killian and trying to sell it. The problem is that he is caught trying to sell it to one of Killian’s men.

Pricilla Hawking walks into her brother’s apartment only to find that she has bad timing. Killian’s men are threatening Jason, and she doesn’t know what is going on. When the men get scared and don’t know what to do with Pricilla, they end up taking both Jason and Pricilla back to Killian. When Pricilla finds out what is in store for her brother, she offers herself to save him. Killian finally agrees to one month of Pricilla’s life and he will let Jason live and not break his legs.

Neither Pricilla (Cilla) nor Killian (Kill) expect to find anything more than a one month contract where Cilla has to do whatever Kill tells her to. When Kill finds out about the dark past that Cilla survived, he realizes that they both have a darkness in them. These two are may be able to heal each other.

I give this story a 5 star review. It was well written, the characters are very well rounded and drew me into their lives. I felt as though I was in the room with them on a few occasions. The story drew me in from the beginning and I hated for it to end.

ARC Review of “Guts & Glass”, by Skyla Madi @Skyla_Madi @givemebooksblog #TuesdayBookBlog

Jai Stone, a man who is looking for retribution for his families pain and destruction. He’s a police officer, but is suspended after getting into trouble at work. He hit superior after the case of the man who destroyed his family is taken from the police department. He feels like the man, Skull, will not get what is coming to him. He has another idea of how to get to him and destroy him, but will it destroy Jai in the process.

Skull, Damien Wolf, a man who was destroyed and now rains destruction down on anyone he wants. He is rich, powerful, cruel, and deadly. Drugs, underground fighting, sex trade, it doesn’t matter, he will make money off of it. A criminal who runs New York City without any trouble from anyone.

Emily Shepherd, a young woman who is fighting to make ends meet and taking nursing classes to have a better life. She’s close to being done and getting her nursing license. She has to take another exam and is studying on her tablet on the subway home from working a late shift at the hospital. She bumps into Jai when he is exiting the train and drops her tablet. Against her better judgement, she follows him to make him pay her to get it repaired. One bad decision leads to another on her part and she is now fighting for her life.

In Guts & Glass, the sixth book in the series, they are in Skull’s compound and there is no light at the end of the tunnel for Jai, Emily, Joel or Monique, they are at the mercy of Skull and they can’t find a way to get free and stay alive in the process. The pain and destruction that Skull rains down is dark and cruel, he has no respect for anyone. It’s obvious that Jai and Emily will do whatever they can to save the other, but will they get the chance to be together again? They are just surviving and still trying to find a way to escape and get away from Skull, but they have to destroy him in order to flee him.

OH MY! I did a marathon read of the New York Crime King Series, over the weekend to catch up on the books before Guts & Glass. I became immersed in Jai and Emily’s world as I read:  #1 Blood & Rust, #2 Sin & Secrets, #3 Smoke & Metal, #4 Rage & Bullets, and #5 Ink & Bone. I’d read the first book in this series under the original title, Broken, Round One, and had not gotten to the others yet. Wow! After reading all of them and then reading Guts & Glass, I am now in a hurry for the next book! I wish the last book were coming out sooner than March 20. I’ve fallen in love with Jai, Emily and Joel. I want to have the rest of the story now!!

If you like strong women who do not back down when they are being threatened, even if they are scared, they you need to pick up this series and read them. I have to say that the New York Crime King Series will be at the top of my reading list for this year. Even with it being the beginning of a new year, this one will stay with me for a while. I give Guts & Glass a 5 star review. This book was probably the hardest to read, but easily a top read for me.
