Mafia Lords, 3

Mafia princess Katherine ‘Kat’ Marino doesn’t have a choice. Promised to her father’s enemy, Kat agrees to marry Angelo Vitale because duty compels her. All she has to do is pretend to be Angelo’s obedient wife. Liking the vicious monster in the expensive suit had never part of the plan. But Angelo’s possessive touch sets her skin on fire and his ardent kisses leave her wanting more. When the line between hate and love blurs, can Kat surrender her heart to a savage king?

A business arrangement—that was all Kat amounted to. Fragile and boring are not the words Angelo would use to describe his new bride. She’s feisty and passionate, a queen capable of bringing a ruthless killer like Angelo to his knees. If he’s not careful, Kat might slip past his guards and own his tainted heart.


Angelo tugged her close for another passionate kiss. Kat started undoing the buttons of his suit. The expression on her face, hungry and impatient, captivated him.

“Let me assist you with that,” Angelo said. He took off his suit, setting it on the arm of a nearby sofa.

“Where’s the bedroom?” she asked.

“This way. My, you are relentless,” he said.

“Is that a bad thing?” Kat asked as she followed him inside his seldom-used bedroom. A cleaning service came in twice a week, so the room was clean and the sheets were fresh at the very least.

“No, I like it,” Angelo said. “I’ve never met anyone quite like you.”

Kat blushed at the compliment. She suddenly seemed unsure of what to do next. It was time for Angelo to take control.

“Turn around,” he ordered.

Kat did as he asked. He tugged the zipper of her dress, exposing the smooth line of her back and her black bra. He noted she wore matching black lace panties. Angelo’s hunger hit him full-force but he restrained himself like a gentleman and helped Kat out of her dress.

Finally, she stood before him in her underwear. She smiled at him, then undid her bra clasp. Kat allowed that to fall to the ground. Her panties came next.

Angelo started on the buttons of his dress shirt, impatient to get the night moving.

“Bed,” he managed to grit out. Kat climbed on the bed and he couldn’t take his eyes from the generous swell of her breasts, hell, to every sweet curve of her perfect body. A goddess lay on his bed and he intended to do what he willed with her.

His Kat With Claws
Written by Champagne77 on 31st Oct 2023

I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book. Katherine is the only daughter of Don Max Marino and classed as a mafia princess, classed in their world she holds no real value only as a pawn to be traded which is exactly what is happening. She has been promised to a man that can only be described as a monster by anyone who knows or has heard of Angelo the Don of the Vitale Family and a brute to be reckoned with if you believe all the gossip. It was her last night of freedom has been arranged by her best friend and she has every intention of making this a night to remember before fulfilling her duty to her family. It was a night where she could be anyone she wanted and when she met Cole a charismatic man that she connected with she knew how she was going to spend her last night of freedom. But is the man she is leaving with really the man she thinks and will her wedding go as she thought or are more than one of them going to be surprised? Angelo is the Don of the Vitale Family has a reputation that has been well earned so when he is approached by Don Max Marino a well established enemy he knows that something is up, but can see that the arrangement would work in his favor and agrees to the arrangement much to the disgust of his alies, but he no follower of the rules but a man who fought to get where he is today. Thinking that this new alliance may cause him problems he decides to meet his bride before the marriage, he has no need for a docile wife, he arranges everything for an impromptu meeting and what he finds is a Kat with claws, a woman who he knows will challenge him everyday. Suddenly this match is looking up, but they have started out in their own web of lies, fake names and a night to remember. He knows he will feel her wrath when she discovers his deceit and he’s looking forward to the fight. But there seems to be one of his associates that is determined to remove her from his life, can he keep her safe when danger comes looking for her and are these feelings he is experiencing love, could this be more than just an arrangement? I really enjoyed this book, Kat lives up to her name and shows everyone that she is no sweet mafia princess but a woman who knows how to fight, Angelo is a man who wins wars but thought love could be a man’s downfall and weakness but with the right woman love is what makes him strong. Highly recommended book and series with darkness, violence, plenty of steam and a happily ever after worthy of 4.5*.

Forced Marriage, Mafia boss

Kat is forced into an arranged marriage by her father to one of his enemies. She doesn't like it but knows there is no way out of it. Angelo is not what Kat expected and finds that he thinks of her more as a trophy wife and more of an equal. This is a shortish book but plenty of action to keep you engaged and wanting to find out if the 2 main characters can have a happy ending.

Angelo and Kat
Written by CarKar on 29th Jul 2023

Loved this arranged marriage between loyal mafia princes, Kat, and Don Angelo. They immediately made a sexy pair, and I liked that they kept surprising themselves with regard to biases they had about each other. Great pacing … it had enough of everything for me. Loved the loyalty in the Vitale familia.

His violent vow

This book was amazing I couldn't put it down from start to finish it was a first for this author but it won't be the last

Very fast, No fluff, no BS, no nonsense. Loved it more than expected.
Written by Mica G on 29th Jul 2023

I really enjoyed how this author wrote this story in a very concise and to the point way. She cut out all the background noise pomp and circumstance that we normally have to sift through to get to the main plot points and sometimes skim right on over. I did not think I would like it and though I may feel like I missed something but really I did not. When I finished the book, I left feeling like I had left knowing the characters past, present and future. This was not my first book by this author. I really enjoy her writing but this book is my favorite so far. Give it and her a try you will not be disappointed.

Kat and Angelo
Written by Reensburger on 29th Jul 2023

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in one sitting and it ticked all the boxes- suspense, heat, sweetness and a little enemies to lovers, but not too much! Kat was a great h, which took me by surprise as at the start I thought Angelo was going to completely rule over her, but she was quite surprising. Great book.

This is the 3rd book out of 4 in the Mafia Lords Series. Although this book felt a bit short to me, it packed a punch.move read the series in order so far and have enjoyed this series. I was surprised to find a bit of humour, but item was welcomed. The story is filled with lots of ‘hold your breath’ moments. The story captivates you and keeps you reading. Great story.

Her father’s enemy
Written by ObsessiveReader on 29th Jul 2023

Kat isn’t your typical mafia princess. She isn't flashy but actually pretty normal. This draws Angelo in the beginning. The way they meet the first time might seem like it was setting them up for disaster, but it gives Angelo time to get an idea of the real Kat. It is an enjoyable story.

Angelo and Kat
Written by weaveswife on 29th Jul 2023

I absolutely love this series! And I loved this couple. Angelo and Kat have an arranged marriage as rival families. Kat sees Angelo at their wedding and realizes she knows him from one night they had together. But he told her his name is Cole. After their wedding their relationship continues to progress until it is all out love. Angelo will do anything to protect his wife and he does. I loved the whole flipping book.

Liked the pace and direction of the story
Written by Brooke H on 29th Jul 2023

This book was fast paced, no nonsense, straight to the action, and I loved it. Kat is forced to marry Don Angelo after her father strikes up a deal with him. It starts off as a kind of enemies to lovers because Kat is resentful about the entire thing and Angelo is more intrigued by her than anything. She’s not a shrinking violet, which he loves. Their chemistry is very hot throughout the book. Assassination attempts plague the couple early on, but the source is swiftly dealt with (his violent vow), and they go onto their happily ever after. He’s protective of her, and she’s loyal only to him. It was a good story.

Written by Cateyes83 on 29th Jul 2023

This contemporary dark mafia romance is page-turning with exceptional world-building that consists of a dark world engulfed by danger, crime, violence, and grit, and intriguing alpha characters that are realistic. Their journey is enthralling with his violent vow, a business arrangement, an arranged marriage, a queen capable of bringing a ruthless killer to his knees, explicit romance that is consumed by steamy passion, lust, desire, and spice with all the feelings, bad boy crime, a mafia princess promised to her father's enemy, drama, heartfelt emotions, suspense, adventure, and more. I recommend reading this book by an extraordinary author who knows how to captivate her reader's hearts and attention with his violent vow and explicit romance that will have readers begging for more. Mafia princess Katherine ‘Kat’ Marino doesn’t have a choice. Promised to her father’s enemy, Kat agrees to marry Angelo Vitale because duty compels her. All she has to do is pretend to be Angelo’s obedient wife. Liking the vicious monster in the expensive suit had never been part of the plan. But Angelo’s possessive touch sets her skin on fire and his ardent kisses leave her wanting more. When the line between hate and love blurs, can Kat surrender her heart to a savage king? A business arrangement—that was all Kat amounted to. Fragile and boring are not the words Angelo would use to describe his new bride. She’s feisty and passionate, a queen capable of bringing a ruthless killer like Angelo to his knees. If he’s not careful, Kat might slip past his guards and own his tainted heart.
