He was never going to be my prince charming…
Arrogant. Ruthless. Breathtaking.
Aiden Kilpatrick is heir to the Irish mafia, and that’s bad news for me.
I’m the D’Ignoti princess, after all. Daughter of the Italian Don who once betrayed his family.
I’ve lived my life in a gilded cage. Untouched… Until he kicks down my door.
Forced to sign a marriage contract, I’m given to him. A debt repayment. A plea for mercy.
But he is merciless.
Suddenly, I’m his to possess. His to corrupt. His to break.
And then, his to save.
Because when the demons of my past come to reclaim my soul, I find myself craving his protection.
Those stormy emerald eyes. That wild hair. The dimples. The desire. They call to me.
And I realize that the only thing more dangerous than falling for the devil,
Is going through hell without him by my side.
*Merciless Prince is a standalone dark mafia romance novel with mature themes and a happily ever after. It is the first book of the Brutal Reign series.
Aiden Kilpatrick isn’t some gentleman gallivanting around as a tough guy. He’s a monster. A mafia prince. The devil disguised in a designer suit. But he’s taken that suit off, and now I see the real monstrous thing.
He stands in front of the red stained-glass window, drenched in bloody light. I swear I see steam rising up from his powerful body.
My knees clatter together. I have to resist. I have to be strong.
“You must do as I say, Elisa.” There’s this jagged elegance to Aiden’s rough voice that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on edge. It also makes my nipples pebble. I can’t let him see my arousal. Then he’ll take me for sure.
As if he won’t take me anyway.
My father warned me about men like Aiden. Irish devils who burn empires to the ground, along with everybody inside, just to get what they want.
And right now, he wants me.
My breaths turn ragged from fear. Bathed in the red light of the bedroom window, Aiden looks like the devil personified. His shirt is off, and his muscular ocean of dark tattoos dances in the darkness.
I gulp. That hard powerful body of his could snap me in half without breaking a sweat.
“What do you want me to say?” I manage to sputter out.
When he steps forward, I can see that he is furious. A low boiling anger shadows his handsome face, making him look more monstrous than ever.
Slowly, he crawls over top of me, locking me in a cage of his searing flesh. A whimper escapes my lips as he pinches my chin and forces me to look him directly in the eyes.
“Are you ready for me now, princess?”
