I wasn't a good man. Not by society standards, and certainly not by the bare minimum. When people heard my name—Enzo Santini—it wrought fear and respect.
I did horrible, violent things, all in the name of power, all because I was the Capo of the Los Angeles Italian crime syndicate known as The Family.
But because of my status, the next step for me should’ve been to get a wife and produce heirs. It's what the men in my world did to secure even more power, to be stronger. But I’d never had the need to do what was expected of me. And listening to others had never been who or what I was. It was one of the reasons I was as powerful as I was.
But the first time I saw Bianca Alfonso, the gorgeous and curvy secretary for Seeking Curves—the matchmaking company The Family had a business hand in—I knew one thing for certain.
She’d be mine.
I’d never wanted anyone or anything as much as I did Bianca. And if I were a man who experienced fear, my bone-deep need to claim her would have scared the hell out of me.
Bianca didn’t know it yet, but I’d make her mine, and not just for one night.
Because I wanted her as my wife and the mother of my children.
I wasn’t human, not completely.
A Lycan—a centuries-old wolf-like creature that was feared by all, stronger than anything on the planet, and who was only ever after one thing. My mate.
For over three hundred years, I had one purpose in life. Find her, the one female born to be mine. My female who’d cause the Linking Instinct—that supernatural connection that told me she was mine and I hers—to finally take root and make me whole.
And for hundreds of years, I’d been alone, saving myself for my mate, never stopping the search.
Until I scented her, saw her, finally felt my heart beat and the blood rush through my veins with hope and anticipation.
She didn’t see me, but she sensed me.
And she ran. She couldn’t possibly know how much the chase turned me on.
I didn’t know how I’d make her understand I could never let her go, that nothing and no one would stop me from making her mine.
Because once a Lycan found his mate… nothing in this world, nothing supernatural or human, could keep him from her.
A fake relationship, bad boy romance. More info to come!
Note: Previously published as Denying the Bad Boy. It has since been totally rewritten with brand new material, and tied loosely into the Black Mountain Academy series. Can be read as a complete standalone.
I had no family, no friends. I was utterly alone and always had been. And once I aged out of the system that raised me, I decided to find out exactly who I was.
Where did I come from? Who were my parents? What made me… me?
It became the fire in my veins.
My journey led me to Scotland, the Highlands, and for the first time in my life, I had this feeling of… belonging.
What should have been a simple hike through the Scottish countryside led me to things far more mysterious than trying to find out who I was.
There were other things—creatures—lurking in this world, ones who were stronger, fiercer. Ones who were not human.
Everything I’d ever known seemed like a fable now. And what was once a fable was now true.
It was one of those otherworldly creatures who stalked me—chased me. I knew I couldn’t outrun him. I couldn’t escape.
He was bigger than any man I’d ever seen, stronger than anyone should be. His growls were feral, his fangs animalistic, and when he watched me, it was with glowing eyes.
I found myself at his mercy, chained to a bed and alone with this man who wasn’t really a man at all. I asked him why I was there, why he took me, held me against my will.
And all he said was… I was his mate.
Luca I'd lost my mind, was more animal than man. More crazed than sane. And all because I hadn't found my mate, that one female born to be mine and mine alone.
As an over four-hundred-year-old Lycan, a supernatural being who was able to shift from human to my inner wolf, my kind was known as fearsome beasts with unimaginable power. All feared us, and rightfully so.
I had given up hope of ever finding my mate and because of that had let my inner beast reign supreme, control me. I was far more rabid than anything else.
But then it happened. I saw her, my halfling mate. Part Lycan. Part vampire. She was perfect and made just for me.
I craved her like no other, and I'd have her as mine no matter what.
For there was nothing more dangerous than a male of the Otherworld finding his mate and keeping her close.
But she had protectors, brothers and a father who saw me for the beast I was, and were ready to go to war with me... to keep her from me.
I'd been waiting my entire life for her, and they'd soon realize I'd level anything and anyone who thought to stand in the way of claiming my prize, no matter the consequences or repercussions.
“My heart was racing with each turn of the page. I was submerged into Jenika’s writing, feeling the fear and desolation. With a strong and determined heroine and an unapologetically dangerous hero I couldn’t stop until I knew the future and at the same time, I didn’t want this story to end. Five brilliant stars for COLD HEARTED BASTARD.” ~ New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig
From USA Today bestselling author Jenika Snow comes a full-length gritty mafia romance that blurs the lines between right and wrong... and love and hate.
He didn’t have a heart… but he wanted hers.
All I knew about life was anger and violence. Pain and suffering. Kill or be killed.
I was a “fixer” for the Ruin—a syndicate for the Bratva, Cosa Nostra, Cartel, and any other organized crime faction that dealt in the darker, crueler aspects of humanity.
I was a free agent who was called upon to do things weaker men didn’t have the stomach for.
And when you surround yourself with death for long enough, soon you don’t remember what it felt like to be alive.
And then I saw her. She was a fragile little thing who tried to be strong. But I could tell she’d seen too much horror in the world, too much of the ugly within people. I should have stayed away. I’d only bring her further down into the darkness.
But for the first time in my life, I felt a stirring in my chest, this protectiveness and possessiveness toward another living person. And it was painful. It made me feel alive.
Lina tried to hide how broken she was, but I was an old friend of being ruined. She held secrets I’d find out. Because for the first time in my miserable life, I wanted something for myself. I felt something more than apathy and indifference.
I wanted to possess the innocence she clung to. I wanted to break it open and consume it for myself.
I could look into her too trusting blue eyes and knew I’d maim for her. I’d kill for her. And that became our truth when her past finally came back for her, when my present tried to destroy her.
They thought they could take the one thing—the only thing—I’d ever wanted for myself. They were wrong.
When I looked at her, I felt some of the monster that made me who I was retreat back to my black soul. He’d never leave… but he’d share the space.
A complete standalone novel in the Underworld Kings series.
I’d never felt like I was missing anything in my life, not until my only friend left to start a journey to find out her own history. It had been clear in the ugliest way that I relied on her company too much over the years.
I needed to make my own path, create my own story.
But then one video call changed my entire life, and I was thrown into a new world where creatures that had only ever been in fiction and movies were now very much real.
And one of them was coming after me.
A werewolf—Lycan—from myth and lore.
He said I was his. He said he was coming for me.
So there was only one thing for me to do. Run.
Cian said he wouldn’t stop until he found me, until he put his mark on my neck. He said he’d go to the ends of the world to make me his mate in all ways.
He’d have one hell of a chase on his hands, because I wasn’t going to make this easy on him.
That was my plan until everything changed--and someone else was hunting us.
This was the only home I’d ever known, the only one humans had.
Alev was a world of heat, inhospitable terrain, dangerous lands, and the fearsome Dragao… dragon-shifting males.
I'd never seen one in person. Until now.
And he said I was his fated female and born to be his and his alone.
Azar was monstrous in size, had horns that curled back from his temples, claws tipping his massive hands, and sharp fangs that he said he'd use to give me his mating mark.
And apparently I was the only female to wake his inner beast.
Azar may treat me as if I was his greatest treasure, but he also refused to let me go. He kept me in his mountain cavern, giving me gentle touches and pleasures I didn't even pretend to hate.
Fear should have been the only thing I felt when I looked at him, but when he stared at me as if I would give him the world—and heirs—it was hard not to fall for my big dragon-shifting mate.
This was just a business transaction, or so she told herself, but when she saw Landon, her prospective husband for the first time, she can’t help the instant attraction.
He tells her he’ll go easy, that he’ll give her time to acclimate to their new relationship. But a part of Anna doesn’t want that. She wants to jump head first into this new adventure, even if that means she doesn’t know what the future holds.
Landon prefers his isolation to social settings. It’s worked well for him over the years, but he’s getting older, has needs. He wants a bride, a family. And buying a woman seems like the easiest, fastest way to make that his reality.
When he sees Anna for the first time, he knows she’s the one for him. Curvy in all the right places and innocent in appearance, he knows she’ll make a good wife and a good mother to his children.
She’s not a prisoner, and can leave at any time, but Landon wants her as his. And if she runs, he’ll follow.
Warning: This is a fast, over-the-top story about one alpha hero who only has eyes for his heroine. It gives you that Happily Ever After, but make no mistake it’s filthy as can be!
Minka was a human, a dying species that was both weaker and more vulnerable than any other being in the galaxy. Because of this, humans were hunted down and taken to the intergalactic auctions to be sold.
Brawn, Thorque, and Lukin were warrior brothers from the planet Hades. Because their need for finding a female and procreating with her had come upon them, they were in search of one to share.
But when they were forced to land on a planet infested with dangerous beasts, the last thing they thought they’d find was their human mate.
When demon-looking warriors rescued Minka from certain death, she knew there would be a price to pay. She just didn’t know that price was to mate all three of them, or to be the mother of their alien babies.
*If you’re looking for straight-up sci-fi sm*t, where one human woman gets to keep 3 sexy alpha aliens all to herself, look no further! *

It was time for Stella to get a little ink of her own, and Cadeon was going to be the man to give it to her. Getting it on with a bad boy sounded like a pretty good way to let loose, and it was only meant to be temporary. But it seemed Cadeon wasn’t all about a one-night stand kind of fling. He wanted it all. He wanted Stella.

Karina had never considered herself one of the svelte, beautiful women that could capture a man's attention, especially not the one man she’s lusted after for far too long.
Viktor Port was many things: arrogant, demanding, and wealthy. But he was also her boss, and she knew there would never be anything between them. There never could be. It was wrong. Forbidden. Against the rules.
Viktor had to be ruthless when it came to getting what he wanted. And he’d never had to try to get a woman—until Karina. She was intent on pushing him away, on denying the intense chemistry that was tangible between them.
And he wasn’t ashamed to admit that for the last year he’d become obsessed with her. Her timid and naturally submissive demeanor made him hard and had him fantasizing about her on her knees as she gave him the control willingly.
He knew he couldn’t ignore what he felt. He wasn’t about to even try.
Viktor had to have her, and one night wouldn’t be enough.
