— He was not Prince Charming. He was the dragon to consume me. —
As the daughter of a mafia boss, I knew that keeping my head down meant staying alive.
So when my father arranged my marriage to a Sicilian mafioso, I smiled and nodded, hoping for a kind man.
But then my future husband’s cousin, Santo Villani, appears to pick me up for the wedding, and my life turns upside down, shattered by a kiss that shouldn’t have happened.
Arrogant, cocky, and yet irresistibly charming, he’s exactly the kind of man I shouldn’t be reaching out for. A dangerous mafioso who isn’t afraid to taste forbidden fruit.
I am torn between duty and passion, but my wedding is set in stone, so no matter which one of them wins, I will fall on their battlefield.
Blood and Marriage is set in the first person by the leading female character and it starts out with a bang. The two main characters are Santo and Lucrezia. Their love is forbidden because it could get them both killed. Lucrezia is forced to marry another man by her father. A man she has never met. But yet they can’t stay away from each other. There is a lot of angst because they are sneaking around to be together. The story was resolved over time and it was not quick which liked. It wasn’t sudden and just thrown together. The author put a lot of thought into putting the story together as a unit. There is so much steam and hotness that I thought my kindle would combust. The sex scenes are amazing. I really enjoyed it.
The pace of the book is perfect. The author did not rush anything n my opinion. Thought t was a great idea to introduce the plot twist n the beginning of book and have the whole book trying to resolve it.
There is no cheating involved and a happy ending too. No cliffhanger and it is a standalone novel.
