Sniping Her Mafia King
Updated at Aug 31, 2022, 04:00
Sniping her Mafia King; Book 4 of the Bellona Collective Series #summerupdate Arwen Beddoe was not your typical assassin, though she would argue there was no such thing. Raised in a household where strong, dominant men took care of their own yet demonstrated unconditional love to their girls, she had always dreamed she would find the kind of man who would love her the way her dad and uncle had loved their wives. As someone who practiced gymnastics as a child, she had no issues with bending or conforming to a demanding man. A strong man needed to be able to handle a strong woman and she was stronger than most. At nineteen her aunt and uncle were murdered, and her cousin left for dead. Using the skills, her marine sharpshooting father had taught her, she hunted down the men who had destroyed her family and in doing so found herself suddenly supported by a group of female assassins. The Bellona Collective had helped her with her mission and then made her their own. Bellona was her family. Adrianu “Addy” Cavallaro had been borne into a world of violence. His first breath had been taken from his father’s firm hand on his buttocks and brutality had followed him every day since. For him, family is everything and he tows the family line, just as he was raised to do. Newly appointed as the head of his family’s business, he is thrust into cleaning up the mess his predecessor had left behind. Unlike his father who abused women and considered them nothing more than commodities, he feels it is his duty to protect the women in his circle. He would never underestimate any woman, especially the ones who are friends with his only female cousin. When Addy locks eyes with a beautiful blonde during an underground fight, he recognizes the look in her eyes as one he has seen many times in them mirror. As a Cavallaro, Addy is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it, but he knows, to win this fiercely independent woman over, he’s going to need to be patient. As the Mafia King, he knows to get results sometimes a man must wait for the perfect moment to strike. He would give her all the time she needed but he knew, she would come to him willingly and once he had her, she would never leave. Arwen is torn by the sudden interest in her by the King. After all, she was the reason he was suddenly thrust into the role he’d been born to play. Would Addy still want her once he found out her secret? For him, family is everything and she had murdered his. What was an assassin to do?

#Dreame Writing Marathon - Love Story Contest #summerupdate The CEO’s Contracted Mistress When Bobbie Caron was twenty-one years old, billionaire tycoon Olivier Villeneuve had swept into her world and flipped it upside down. With her sister dying in a care home, when he made her the offer to spend thirty days with him for sixty thousand dollars, she knew she couldn’t refuse. Then he had double-downed and extended her contract by another thirty days. The charming charismatic man with the filthy tongue easily had Bobbie eating out of his hand and stealing her heart. Just shy of the sixty-day mark, with Olivier away on business, she finds out he has not only abandoned her in their hotel suite, but he’s passed her contract on to someone else to finish out. With the help of a security agent, she made her escape, but the damage was done. The realization she had almost been sex-trafficked by the man she had fallen in love with was devastating. She turned tail and ran as far away as her bank balance would allow. Olivier Villeneuve was a financial genius with a love for numbers unlike anything else. When he sets eyes on a gorgeous blonde barista, he knew he had to have her. When he returns from his trip to his family’s estate to learn she’d run off with his security agent, he was incensed. Nobody takes what is his and makes a fool of him in the process. He spends nine years searching for them both. When Olivier is seated in his hotel his eyes clash with a set of familiar eyes and all bets are off. He will do anything to get Bobbie back in his bed, including demand she finishes out the five days of her contract she never fulfilled. When the man realizes the children, she is traveling with, are not her employer’s kids but his, twins with his eyes and his cocky smirk, he’s found his key to success. He’s going to have his contracted mistress back with the bonus of his babies, whether she likes it or not. For Bobbie the problem isn’t whether she likes it, it’s whether her heart can survive another round as the CEO’s contracted mistress. All’s fair in love in war, until it isn’t. When the truth comes out, how far will Olivier go to protect what is his and can Bobbie survive the fallout?
