I love, love, love the heroes in my books, but sometimes they are heartbreakers. For example, when Mafia Don Enrico Lucchesi lies to Kate Andretti, the woman he loves, about who he is because he knows she won't accept it, you *know* there's some heartbreak coming! Or when Interpol agent Nick Clarkston lies to Mafia princess Delfina Andretti and tells her he's a dirty agent working for her father, there's heartbreak ahead when they fall for each other, because Nick has no intention of betraying his law-enforcement ideals.
Both of these heroes lie with good intentions--Enrico to keep Kate safe from her mobster husband, Nick to infiltrate the Mafia and seek justice--but they both almost lose the women they love because of these lies. It takes some pretty dramatic heroism on both their parts to win their women back. I like some good groveling, but there's nothing like a man putting his life on the line to save the woman he loves--wins your heart every time, doesn't it?
If these heartbreaker heroes sound like the kind of men you swoon for, you might want to check out my Blood and Honor romantic suspense series, which is set in Italy among the Calabrian Mafia. The series chronicles the battles--both bloody and romantic--between two warring Mafia clans. Books 1 and 2 are available now.
Book 1: Revenge (Blood and Honor, #1)
A woman on the run. A damaged Mafia don. A rival bent on revenge...
Kate Andretti is married to the Mob--but doesn't know it. When her husband uproots them to Italy, Kate leaves everything she knows behind. Alone in a foreign land, she finds herself locked in a battle for her life against a husband and a family who will "silence" her if she will not do as they wish. When her husband tries to kill her, she accepts the protection offered by a wealthy businessman with Mafia ties. He's not a mobster, he claims. Or is he?
Enrico Lucchesi never wanted to be a Mafia don, and now he's caught in the middle of a blood feud with the Andretti family. His decision to help Kate brings the feud between the families to a boil. When Enrico is betrayed by someone in his own family, the two of them must sort out enemies from friends--and rely on each other or die alone. The only problem? Enrico cannot reveal his identity to Kate, or she'll bolt from his protection, and he'll be duty-bound to kill her to safeguard his family's secret.
Attacks from without and within push them both to the breaking point, and soon Enrico is forced to choose between protecting the only world he knows and saving the woman he loves.

Book 2: Retribution (Blood and Honor, #2)
An Interpol agent playing a dangerous game. A Mafia princess desperate to escape. A man determined to exact retribution...
Nick Clarkston, a young Interpol agent, threatens to undo the fragile peace between the Lucchesi and Andretti families when he tries to take down the Mafia don father who abandoned him. He allies with his father's sworn enemy, a mobster both devious and ruthless. The mobster's alluring daughter helps Nick negotiate the murky criminal underworld, but he soon learns she's using him. Trapped, and with nowhere to turn, Nick makes a tragic mistake that plunges him further into danger.
Delfina Andretti appears to be the typical Mafia princess--but this princess wants out. Delfina dreams of being a fashion designer, and hooking up with Nick is her ticket out of an arranged marriage. Her feelings for Nick are genuine, but he's leery of her. Even worse, his heedless drive for justice threatens to get them both killed and to put everyone Delfina loves behind bars--unless she and Nick can forge a new future for their warring families.
You can find Retribution at these retailers: Amazon US (Kindle), Amazon UK (Kindle), Amazon CA (Kindle), Apple, All Romance eBooks, Barnes & Noble, Barnes & Noble (UK), Diesel, Kobo, OmniLit, Smashwords, and Sony.
