If you love crime novels, especially ones that center around the mafia and the underworld, this is the book for you! I happened to stumble across this amazing book and was intrigued since I also have a book about a crime lord/family coming out soon. I fell hard for this book and so I decided I just HAD to share it with all of you! Please take a few minutes to read the blurb below and if you're as gripped by the compelling plot as I was, please help a fellow author out and purchase this book TODAY! (See buy links below!)
I am marked by the Black Rose, the symbol of my father’s cruelty and arrogance. It’s a stain that will never wash out, the same mark all those girls carry—the ones who keep turning up dead.
My father, underboss for a powerful crime family, killed my fiancé, then told me he’d see me dead too. The only reason he didn’t kill me right then and there was because he wanted me to suffer first.
But he will never break me.
I ran away. I survived. Those other girls…they weren’t so lucky.
To stop the murders, I’ll have to go back and give my father what he wants. Me. My blood.
And then there’s Hunter…the only man I want, and the only one I can never have. If he finds out who I am, everything I’ve fought for will fall apart.
There will never be a knight in shining armor to rescue the girls of the Black Rose. I’ll have to do that myself.
The blood of the Family runs in my veins, and I will not go down without a fight.
