All About My Upcoming Release -- Mine to Protect
Mine to Protect will release on December 1st, 2022, and is available for preorder now on Amazon.
My Unspeakable duet is made up of two romantic thriller novels described as a combination of "Nicholas Sparks’ deeply emotive writing and the twisted, traumatic themes of the Netflix series ’The Sinner.’” You might be wondering how a mafia romance can follow their precedent. To be honest, I get it. Most mafia romance novels aren’t ones I’d recommend to friends or family. But mine is different. Here’s how.
𝙈𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙋𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙩 includes 𝗱𝗮𝗿𝗸 and 𝗲𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 themes same as my previous books such as overcoming the death of a parent, overcoming the death of a sibling, overcoming one’s feelings of being unworthy of love and fears of losing another. Alister and Ariana have much to overcome before they get their happily ever after, both emotionally and physically.
Set in the 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗿𝗼𝘂𝘀 yet 𝗴𝗹𝗮𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗼𝘂𝘀 world of the 𝗡𝗲𝘄 𝗢𝗿𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝗳𝗶𝗮, Alister Amato is a King at war. He has suffered many tragic losses in his life, partially depicted in 𝘉𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘜𝘯𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘬𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦, and a recent attack on his sister, Sophia, has left him reeling. Ariana Valentine is an FBI agent meant to protect civilians from criminals like Alister, but she soon learns he may have answers regarding her mother’s mysterious murder eighteen years prior. This forces her to seek out her 𝘀𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗻 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗺𝘆 and try to convince him to help her discover the truth of her past. But, Alister has his own 𝘀𝗲𝗰𝗿𝗲𝘁𝘀 to uncover as an unknown enemy continues to work against him. Ultimately, Alister and Ariana will work together to solve the 𝗺𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘁𝘀. This is the catalyst for their love story.
The romance in 𝙈𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙋𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙩 is much more prominent than in my 𝘜𝘯𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘬𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 duet. It is a 𝗺𝗮𝗳𝗶𝗮 𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲, which means the romance is more important than all of the action and investigation. Though those 𝗵𝗶𝗴𝗵-𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀 𝗰𝗶𝗿𝗰𝘂𝗺𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 certainly make falling in love that much more 𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 and 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗲. As sworn enemies, Alister and Ariana’s love story is a 𝘀𝗹𝗼𝘄 𝗯𝘂𝗿𝗻 filled with a 𝗽𝘂𝘀𝗵 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗽𝘂𝗹𝗹 of emotions, 𝗳𝗹𝗶𝗿𝘁𝘆 𝗯𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿, 𝘀𝘄𝗼𝗼𝗻-𝘄𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵𝘆 𝘀𝗰𝗲𝗻𝗲𝘀, and a constant 𝗱𝗲𝗻𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗼𝗳 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 until they simply can’t deny them anymore.
Description of Mine to Protect
Alister Amato is rich, powerful, and feared by all who know the truth. He’s the Blood King, a mafia boss with a lust for blood and an infinite reach. Everything in me screams I should stay away. But when my Organized Crime Task Force is called to investigate the slaughter of a rival criminal syndicate, I know that isn’t an option. The way the men were killed is something I’ve only seen once before—eighteen years ago when my mother was murdered and I was orphaned. I don’t know how my mother wound up in the clutches of the mafia. But, after all this time, I will stop at nothing to discover the truth.

They call me King, but I am nothing but a prisoner. The world of darkness I belong to has stolen everything from me—my mother, my sister, my happiness, my freedom. Most of all, it has stolen my ability to love. If it weren’t for my sister, Sophia, I would walk away from the throne I never wanted and let New Orleans burn. But even that would not set me free. My name and my blood have placed a target on my back and cursed anyone who stands beside me to the same fate. Which is why when FBI agent Ariana Valentine weasels her way into my life and heart, I do everything I can not to fall for her. My love is a death sentence. And, after everything this world has taken from me, I won’t let it take her too. 𝘌𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘪𝘧 𝘪𝘵 𝘮𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘴 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘸𝘢𝘭𝘬 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘐’𝘷𝘦 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘺𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦.
