Titles By CD Reiss
Sold to one man. Forced to marry a monster.
Today, I become a mafia bride.
My father’s sold me into marriage for the good of the family. In the back of the limo, next to my Daddy, I promise myself I’m going to do everything I can to be a good wife. It’s what I was raised for.
But the driver takes a wrong turn, stops the car, pulls a gun on Daddy and says, “Your daughter is mine. Get out.”
From then on, I am Dario Lucari’s prisoner.
He's both beautiful monster and cruel angel, and no matter what he makes me do, he will not rest until he has taken his revenge on my father.
Suddenly thrust into a world of betrayal, lies, and deviance, all I have to do to escape is betray everything I’ve ever loved, and try not to love the man I must destroy.
Take Me is the first book in the filthy, heart-pounding Manhattan Mafia trilogy.
It was always Sarah. And she was always mine.
I woke up in a nightmare. I woke up alone.
There was a reason I never let myself have feelings before. Emotions make you stupid. They make you miscalculate.
If someone gave me the choice, I’d do it all over again.
Only this time, I’d stop everyone who ever looked at the woman I love before they had the chance to hurt her.
But since that’s not an option, I’ll just have to stay alive long enough to find her.
And together, we’ll break the whole world for what they’ve done.

I can protect her from the world, but who will protect me from her?
