The Don: Part one of the Oath duet

Blood stains my hands, my soul, my heart, yet I’ll shed more to keep her safe.

A chance meeting brings Jen MacNeill into my life—the woman born to reign at my side.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
How could my Lady be anything other than a silken promise taunting me with every breath she takes?
A new Don reigns over Manhattan.
But though I won the war, peace isn’t easily brokered.
Over a decade of avenging my father’s death, I made many enemies.
To each and every one, Jen’s a target.
But I’ll paint NYC red before I let them harm her.
I just never imagined I’d be in the line of fire first…

A heart broken by grief can feel no guilt or shame with the brutality in which vengeance is delivered.

Hello there ..

The Don is finally here! I was so excited to read this story, and once I got it I did nothing else until I finished it. Or that was the plan anyway.

I’ve loved her other series (Sinners & Feckers), and I was curious to see if I would love this just as much. Mostly because I wasn’t too sure about Jen. From the other books I just wasn’t sure I would even end up liking her. Luciu on the other hand, intrigued me from the start. 

But back to the 1st book in this duet. Honestly, it got off on a rocky start. I just could not get into the story, and I had trouble liking Jen at all. But you would have thought I’d learn by now after reading so many of the authors books …

I stuck with it and suddenly the book grabbed hold and would not let go until I finished. It was beautiful, dark, gritty and steamy. And by the end I not only liked Jen, I loved her and felt for her. And Luciu and Jen are so perfect for each other it’s not even funny. I wont say a word about the actual storyline or anything else that happens in the book. This is the first half of their story, and it just needs to be experienced. It ends on a cliffhanger though, but lucky for us – The Lady is right around the corner.
