City Of Thieves (Underworld Kings) Kindle Edition
This city tells a story of a man seeking vengeance...
Renzo Marchesi gives me two choices when he walks into my art gallery:
Help him find his brother's killer or suffer the consequences.
He's a mafia prince...
Heir to the Marchesi throne.
A man consumed by his demons.
I don't belong in his world, and he doesn't belong in mine.
Still, I'm not the spoiled politician's daughter he thinks I am...
This is the City of Thieves, where lies are hard currency and deception is the real art.
Trust no one.
Love no one.
Too bad I don't follow my own rules...
They say black arrows make for bleeding hearts.
Now, I'm planning the ultimate heist for a man who never misses.
City of Thieves is an enemies to lovers mafia romance with no cliffhanger and a guaranteed HEA. For mature readers only.

Renzo Marchesi and Tatiana Sanders are fire and ice. Renzo needs Tatiana to introduce him to the world of art to find the Russian who is responsible for his brothers death. As they are threatened by unknown enemies they realize that maybe they have more in common than they thought. As they learn to trust each other with their truths they also fall in love. Renzo realizes he has more to gain besides avenging his brothers death. And Tatiana realizes she can trust and rely on someone after years of being on her own. Can they destroy their common enemy and have create a life together? Catherine Wiltcher and Cora Kenborn are explosive together and create another twisty plot with lots of heat and sexy scenes between these characters. Another five star story in my favorite world of mafia and family loyalty and suspense and murder.
I loved having this tie into previous worlds, but not in a way that those that are new to both of these author's books would be lost. It was more of an Easter egg and made me want to do a re-read with those characters. This had heartbreaking back stories for both characters that ended up making me route for their happily ever after that much more. This was a great addition to the Underworld Kings Universe. Highly recommend.
My laughing quote of the book was (you have to read it to get it)... "Wincing at her curses, I make a mental note to buy her half of Tiffany’s when this is over."
My quote of this book was... "...it’s our scars and flaws that make us the real masterpieces."
I fell in love with the story of Rento and Tatiana. I thought the ending was going to be slightly different, but ooohhh, it was perfect! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Our story begins in gripping devastation, with our hero Renzo and our heroine Tatiana both in self-imposed exiles as the result of their personal pains. Emotional shutdown, lost, and desperate, their stories collide in the most unexpected of ways, as Renzo seeks his revenge for a heartbreaking loss. His quest to track down information brings him to gallery owner and art connoisseur Tatiana, but his coercion of her assistance soon turns into something far deeper, more complicated, and dangerous for them both.
Tatiana just broke my heart. From the very first sentence, Cora and Catherine shatter us with her pain and trauma. Pain that has transfigured not just her life, but her heart. Her facade is one of an icey and callous woman, but this is a facade for the broken and desperate young girl trapped inside. And that sparks something in the ruthless and dangerous Renzo- a man who has too been shattered, a man who is also hiding behind a carefully constructed visage. Their demons are complicated, the shadows deep, but their souls find a kindredness in one another, a likeness they can’t ignore. And soon their secrets rise to the surface, their fragility exposed. The cunning antihero becomes a hero and finds his redemption. And the broken ice queen finds her heartbeat again, freed by her restored power.
Both are such compelling characters, flawed and a bit tragic. But that is what makes their journey beautiful. Renzo is a delicious mafioso, but he’s gentle even in his brutality. And Tatiana is so compelling in her broken strength, in her vulnerability and fortitude. Their connection is mesmerizing- though a bit of instalove, but here it works. Their is a magnetic pull in the way they see parts of themselves in each other. Watching them find trust again- with the person they should trust least- was the best part of their story.
Paired with the dark but beautiful romance is a masterful mafia plot of betrayal, history, and secrets. SO much action, twists, turns, and so many unexpected villains. I loved how all the pieces came together, and how cleverly the past and present wove together. A storyline perfectly married and balanced with the unfolding romance- and it all keeps the pages turning.
This is an action-packed, steamy one-sit read that I thoroughly enjoyed- can’t wait to read more from this dynamic duo!

City of Thieves - When these two authors team up it’s always epic. I dropped everything to dive in to this book. I was so excited! I couldn’t read it fast enough.
Renzo and Tatiana’s story was fantastic. It was non stop action, danger, suspense, and SMOKING HOT! These two characters are explosive together.
I loved it!! ( Very unsurprisingly!)
Firstly, you definitely don't have to read any of Catherine's/ Cora's previous books to understand this & for it to be amazing as a standalone (but I think they're all amazing so I would recommend anyway!)
City of Thieves follows Tatiana who is an art dealer in New York. She's the 'ice queen' - she's cut all ties with her family in order to protect herself.
In walks Renzo Marchesi, a mafia prince who is out for revenge and enlists Tatiana in his plans.
They're thrown together in a world of deadly secrets.
This is a dark, enemies to lovers, mafia romance with so many twists and turns. (It ends on a HEA though so no worries!)
I loved this book so much and I really couldn't recommend it enough! I loved the witty banter between Tatiana and Renzo and it's fairly spicy! I thought it was so well paced so you don't get bored. ( I read this all in a day 😅)
My favourite quote from the book: "You were made for me, Tatiana. Every damaged part of you fits every damaged part of me."
