I had something to live for.
The moment I saw him, I knew.
His eyes would hypnotize.His lips would speak the most beautiful promises. His body? Made for pleasure.
But if Corrado Capitani thought that he could fool me into thinking he was a good man, he was wrong.
The moment I saw him, I knew the truth.Those eyes hid his poisonous heart.Those lips were vessels of deception.That body? Made for inflicting pain.
He wasn’t sent from heaven. He was sent to drag me back to hell.
I had something to die for.
Alcina Parisi had a price on her head, and she’d eluded the best. She thought no one would ever find her, but I did. Everyone in our world called me Scorpio—the man who never let the enemy go. But she was a weapon, not an adversary, and I’d claimed her as mine.
Mercenary is the third of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series.
Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.
Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.
Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
He’s lived his life believing one thing and discovers his whole life was a lie and that his father never claimed his as his son. It doesn’t matter now though because in order to take over the head of the family when his grandfather retires, he has to take a wife. He has no desire to marry or have a family, but it is the only way to prove that he is fit for the job as the head of the family, so he agrees. He also made a mistake and has a price on his head so he is exiled to Italy by his grandfather until things can be taken care of. Corrado Capitani has a score to settle and he won’t back down from it, nor will he change his mind about seeking the head of the man that killed his father.
She wanted nothing to do with Junior Napoli, but he threatened her and her family with his connections to the Capitani family and forced her to marry him. He paid for the way he treated Alcina Parisi when she took her revenge on his abuse and fled. Now she has a price on her head and has to hide away to stay alive and away from Silvio and his son, Silvio “Junior”. She has been promised to another man for protection for her and her family. However, when she lays eyes on Corrado her heart and her head war with each other.
I loved Mercenary’s story. Corrado is as dangerous and deadly as Cash and Machiavellian. He is also a stubborn man. Once he sets his mind on something there is no going back for him. The problem is that his stubbornness could get him killed or make him lose his family. There are a lot of secrets that come to light in this story, the same as the other Gangsters of New York stories, but it seemed as though the secrets in this story could be so much more damaging and have worse outcomes if people did not communicate or think things through. I love the characters in these stories, and I hope that Nunzio and Brooklyn have more of a story and Adriano needs a story. I loved the way that this story ended and that Mac and Corrado were able to form a cease fire between each other. I give this story and 5-star review and will be on the lookout for more books by Bella Di Corte. She definitely knows how to write a mafia story with angst, danger, action, suspense and deep love.
