The Lady: Part Two of the Oath duet
I’ve spent a lifetime avoiding the various factions of the mafia in NYC, yet somehow I’m in it up to my eyeballs.
I should be scared.
I should want to run.
Yet the city quivers in fear with every designer-clad footstep I take, because the Valentinis have ascended, and I’m the Don’s Lady.
However Luciu comes with vendettas and a craving for vengeance that could get him killed.
With my allegiance tied to the Irish, can I say yes when he wants me to take an oath to the Sicilians?
Is a happily-ever-after on the cards when the ‘after’ isn’t even promised?
This is the second part of ‘The Oath’ duet in The Valentini Family series.
THE DON must be read first.
The plot thickens ..
The Lady has arrived! and after the cliffhanger in The Don I was so happy we didn’t have long to wait. My review of The Don.
The story picks up right where it ended, it’s fast paced compared to the first one and a real page-turner. I wont say much about what actually happens so this review wont be long. Luciu just keeps being a perfect Don, and perfect for Jen. He would set fire to the world for her. Jen keeps growing and maturing and I really like her for Luciu. That they are perfect for each other gets more apparent in this book as they settle more into each others lives and becomes a unit.
This story is not a straight line to a HEA. It’s twisting and turning, revealing secrets and betrayals, bringing people together and breaking them apart. It’s family vs. enemies. And I loved every second. It was emotional, steamy and just had everything a dark mafia romance should have, and then some. I loved the nuances and worldbuilding. The secondary characters are also a big reason why this story was so good, and I really loved the glimpses and hints we get of their future stories. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the Valentinis! and the Feckers and the Sinners’..
