“Don’t feel bad for me, I’m a sinner. I wear the cross not because I’m worthy, but because I need it more than anyone else, more than any faithful, pure heart. I need it like any other sinner, as a shield, to help me not fall into the vortex of sin.”
Are you ready for Donna Filomena – The Lady of the Mafia? Are you ready for her deepest secrets, her lies, her sacrifices?
“The Secret dies with me.”
This is a dark novella, following the novel Scars, based on the character of Donna Filomena, Alejandro De la Crux’s mother.
Reading sequence: Skins, Scars, Filomena: a Scars novella and Crux (coming soon)
Filomena gives us a whole new perspective on the cruel, twisted world of the De La Crux Mafiosi. Filomena is told from the point of view of Donna Filomena. Donna Filomena started off as the daughter of The Duke Antonio Del Monte. Little did Donna Filomena know that she had been offered to Alonso De La Crux as part of a deal, a deal made between her father and his. Now Alonso was there to collect his prize!
This book tells us of Donna Filomena’s life, it begins when she is introduced to Alonso and continues as they are married and begin a family. It takes us deep into the depths of her relationship with Alonso and shows the struggles she endures, and faces being married to such a powerful man.
When Filomena becomes a mother her outlook changes somewhat, as she realises that she needs to protect Alejandro from this dark and cruel side of Alonso. She tries so hard to keep Alonso’s darkness and cruelty away from her son. There’s only so much she can do when she’s completely alone though.
Filomena’s story is filled with emotions and her deepest secrets, ones that no-one else knows. It gives an outstanding insight into a character that; up until now; I thought was a cold hard woman. Now I can see why she has behaved the way she has.
Filomena is a dark, cruel, twisted emotional novella that fits this series perfectly.
Laura Rossi’s writing style is as amazing as ever. She shows a real talent for writing darkly twisted stories. Her words are like fishing hooks that sink into your brain and pull you further into the world that she has created. The more words you read, the further the hook burrows and the more you want to read.
I’ve got to say Filomena was a captivating read, I have loved every page. I can not wait to see just what is in store for us in Crux!!
If you haven’t read this book yet, you really should. BUT you need to read Skins and Scars(in that order) first!
My name is Laura Rossi and I am a dreamer, the kind that walks around all day and likes to go back and forth, from the real world to her own little world.
I have two kids and a fantastic partner. We work together in our little pharmacy in Italy.
After travelling around the world with my family and living abroad a few years, I graduated in Criminology and Psychology in London and worked with juvenile offenders for two years, before moving back to Italy.
I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but never published any of my manuscripts until 2016, when I completed Counterpoints book 1 after many happy, sleepless nights.
I am allergic to staticism, I cannot sit still. I love to travel and meet new people. When I am not busy working or being a mommy, you can find me at a car race event (I am a big Formula one fan) or at a rock gig, or on the beach fantasizing about new character and new stories I’d like to write.
When grad student Morgan Leviss chose sexual surrogacy for her thesis, she never expected to become one. Now she’s tasked with turning two reclusive men into social creatures. Zac Blackstone and Aiden Goldman are nothing like what she expects. Handsome and charming, they’re a puzzle she finds intriguing.
Zac and Aiden have known each other for over two hundred years. Part of a cadre of shifters, they’re on a mission to mate and procreate. Powerful warriors for centuries, they lack the social skills and sexual experience needed to attract a partner. When a beautiful redhead comes into their life to teach them, they discover new hope.
Bound by secrecy, the men can’t tell her who they really are. What they are. Increasingly drawn to Morgan, they begin to recognize her as their fated female. Convincing her that she’s theirs may be as hard as keeping her alive when danger appears from the shadows.
Morgan is the first in the Guarded Hearts Series of standalone Erotic Paranormal Romance Ménage deftly penned as subtle Romantic Comedy with a heat level that’s off the charts. Written for Ages 18+.
Genres: Paranormal Romance / Romantic Comedy / Sci-Fi Fantasy / Erotic Romance / Ménage
First in the Guarded Hearts Series of standalones (no previous reading required)
I’ve been a fan of Claire Marta’s work for a while now. But this is the first of Nia Farrell’s work that I’ve read. I think that these two authors have worked incredibly well together. Their writing styles complement each other and the book flows effortlessly, I couldn’t tell who had written which parts.
The Blurb for this book had me intrigued but I didn’t know exactly what was in store for me.
Zac and Aiden are two extremely hot males and they are looking for their mate, their fated mate. The problem they have is that they are completely inexperienced with females and all aspects of dating. Tasked with finding their mate and procreating, help is enlisted in the form of Morgan Leviss.
Morgan is currently researching and writing a thesis based on sexual surrogacy, when she chose this for her thesis she had never dreamed that she might actually become one herself.
What starts off as a working relationship progresses into so much more. The chemistry between Morgan, Zac and Aiden is phenomenal. They work extremely well together each character is as compelling as the others.
The overall story is well thought out and well written. It’s descriptive and informative. The words on the pages creates a very clear mental image for the reader to become lost and engrossed in.
A native Brit, I live in Italy with my husband and daughter. When I am not writing and drinking copious amounts of tea, I enjoys taking photos of my adoptive country, trying to stay fit with running, reading amazing books and being a stay at home mother.
I love reading and writing romance, contemporary and historical, with a special fondness for stories with BDSM and/or menage relationships. I enjoy crafting characters that will stay with you long after you’ve read about them. Their stories are layered, with topics like PTSD and autism, with elements of spirituality and mysticism, with psychic gifts and everyday challenges to be met and overcome.
A lot of me goes into my books. I’ve done psychic readings at Irish festivals (like Grace in SOMETHING ELSE). I have cowritten music like Anna in SOMETHING MORE. Rachel’s story was the most challenging because of the themes involved. A dear friend struggles with post-rape PTSD and two of my nephews are autistic. SOMETHING MORE addresses some of the challenges they face.

Home is where the heart is … or the hatred.
You can feel the love and care someone puts into their home just by walking into it. Equally, you can feel the hatred and malice when you step into a home where dark deeds have been done.
Alex and his team of so-called paranormal investigators are given the opportunity of a lifetime when they are able to film inside one of the most haunted, and cursed, locations in their area.
The Jackson Mansion.
The thing that makes this mansion truly unique is that it is built completely underground. Determined to uncover the dark secrets of the mansion’s past, and prove himself a notable investigator, Alex doesn’t care what it takes. The mansion, however, has other ideas, as well as some rather restless occupants.
I’m not entirely sure I have the words to do this book the justice it deserves. I’ve been left utterly speechless!
Buried takes us into the heart of the Jackson Mansion. It follows Alex and his team of Paranormal Investigators as they are finally allowed access to film inside the mansion. The aim of Alex and his team is to spend time in the mansion and disprove all of the horrific scandals that this mansion is surrounded by. I think Alex and the team got a lot more than they ever bargained for!
This is a book packed with horrific, creepy and twisted acts that will have your jaw hitting the floor in shock!
Buried is an exceptional piece of writing, that will have you completely in awe of just how twisted and depraved it is. This author has such a way with words, you will have little or no choice in seeing the things that Sian describes in your own mind.
Buried grabbed a hold of my attention from the very beginning, the more I read the more I became engrossed in the twisted tales of the Jackson Mansion!
Buried really is an exceptional piece of fiction writing and is worthy of so much more than 5 Stars. Sian you are one twisted lady, please don’t ever change.

What to do when your husband runs off and leaves you single—when being single is not your thing?
Lizzie has decided that single life does not suit her.
From castles in Scotland to barns in Kent, via apartments in London, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery as a single woman with all the humorous pitfalls along the way.
Naked artists, extreme earth lovers, taxidermy, and blow up dolls, are just some of the encounters Lizzie has to endure in her effort to get her life back on track.
With the dashing Scot, Ronan, by her side, will she ever be able to do that?
Or will his mountain of baggage just pile alongside hers creating an impenetrable wall between them?
I’m not a big reader of this genre, in fact, I can count on one hand the amount of romantic comedies I’ve read this year. Limp Dicks and Saggy Tits is incredibly funny, when I say funny, I mean laugh-out-loud funny. I was reading this in my doctors waiting room and being stared at by everyone because I was sat in the corner laughing so much I was crying!
In Limp Dicks and Saggy Tits, we meet Lizzie, who is Lizzie? Lizzie is a 50-year-old single star of this book. She has decided single life isn’t for her. The problem is just how does she re-enter the world of Dating? (Seriously, I’m not even 40 and I wouldn’t have a clue!)
We follow the newly divorced Lizzie as she begins the self-discovery and dating chapter of her life. She starts off by taking dating advice from her best friend Joe. Lizzie takes that on board but then decides to throw caution to the wind and be spontaneous. It’s this spontaneity that leads her to Scotland and eventually to Kent.
Lizzie finds herself in some pretty funny and sometimes crazy situations. Pat the Cat and the weight loss item are just a couple of the funny bits! If I was in Lizzie’s situation I don’t know if I’d be any better or different either.
Ronan is a Scottish enigma. He brings so much to this story; he really does add to the funniness. The castle in Scotland, WOW, what a place! Although that’s not what I expected to hear happening within its grounds though 😉
Tracie’s writing style has adapted to fit this genre well. Tracie has written a light-hearted, funny story of self-discovery and life after divorce. I think the mix of funny, laugh out loud moments and romance is well suited to these characters and this story.
If you want a book that is light-hearted, giggle-worthy and captivating then I would certainly recommend Limp Dicks and Saggy Tits.
Even if romantic comedies aren’t normally your thing, this book is definitely worth taking a chance on.
Meet the Author
Have a destination wedding, they said. The mountains are so romantic, they said. They’ve obviously never been a runaway bride.
Olivia Love has it all. She’s rich, spoiled, and about to marry the man of her dreams—until she witnesses her fiancée with someone else, sending her on a little run. Down the side of a mountain. In her wedding dress.
When she finds a cabin in the woods, her relief is short-lived at discovering it to be empty. No phone, no heat, and no way back to her perfect little life. That is until a gun-toting mountain man fills the space and sends her heart rate skyrocketing.
Carter Fitzwilliam likes the simple things in life. His sheep farm, his privacy, and man’s best friend are all he needs until a smart-mouthed beauty in a white dress breaks into his cabin and threatens to complicate the hell out of everything.
She’s lost, looking for help. He’s hiding, only wanting to be left alone. Will she be the one person his heart needs to find?
If you like outrageously funny characters, sexy heroes, and a juicy opposites-attract story than you’ll love the first book in the Lost & Found series, Cabin Fever is the first standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy book in the Lost & Found series by Elizabeth Lynx.
As the synopsis states Olivia Love has chosen to do a runner. And what a day to do it on, her wedding day!! But considering what she has seen could you blame her? I know I can’t!
For Olivia, the biggest downside is that she has to run down a mountain! When Olivia finds a cabin that she thinks is empty she feels relief. That relief is short-lived when she realises there’s no phone, no heating, nothing! And then a gun-toting man turns up, making her feel even more uneasy!
Carter lives in his cabin on his own and enjoys his simple life as a sheep farmer. He doesn’t want anyone else in his life except his dog and his sheep. So when he returns home to find Olivia in his cabin, he’s not sure what to think, except to get rid of her one way or another.
Cabin Fever is a witty, funny, sarcastic romantic story of an accidental meeting of two individuals. It’s not an insta-love story, these two have their own demons to overcome and they need to learn to trust before they can accept any kind of love that is offered.
The pieces of Cabin Fever begin to come together a little like a jigsaw puzzle, as they begin to slot into place it makes the desire to know more becomes stronger, making you want to read just one more chapter… then another and another
The characters are deceptive in that they appear to be so alike, but yet they so different.
I think that Elizabeth has got the mix of romance, wit, sarcasm, and humour spot on. She also includes a few twists and turns to keep the readers on their toes and to keep them guessing at what might happen next.
I couldn’t stop reading this book. I can’t wait for the next installment in the Lost and Found Series.
I’m an indie author that writes steamy romantic comedies and erotic romance.

A Missing Girl. A Ticking Clock. A One Man War Against Crime.
Sam Pope is back, in the explosive sequel to The Night Shift. As his mission against organised crime rages on, Sam Pope finds himself the target of a dedicated task force led by a tenacious young inspector. In the midst of a gun fight with a violent street gang, he finds a desperate father venturing into a world he doesn’t understand, searching for a daughter he will never see again.
Realising that the net is tightening and the clock is ticking, Sam burns a hole right through the under belly of London to find the missing girl, finding himself in the cross hairs of some of the most dangerous people in the city.
The Takers is a brutal, action packed thriller that will delight fans of Lee Child, Mark Dawson, Vince Flynn and Rob Sinclair.
This is the second book in the Sam Pope series, and it continues in an epic way.
Sam continues with his one-man fight against the organised crime in London. The problem is whilst he is hunting the organised criminals the police are hunting him.
Whilst Sam is taking down another organised gang a desperate father walks in looking for his daughter. Sam agrees to help him find his daughter.
The hunt for the missing girl put Sam right in front of the task force who are hunting him and right in the middle of some of the most dangerous criminals in the country.
I have loved reading more of Sam Pope’s adventures The Takers is an action-packed thriller that had me glued to every page! I was hooked from the very beginning. I was glad to be back alongside Sam.
It’s clear from reading The Takers that Rob has spent a lot of time and energy researching, planning and writing this novel. Rob’s writing style fits this book so well. Rob feeds his readers everything that is needed to piece together the events and to feel a part of this story, it’s almost like following a breadcrumb trail.
I am a thirty-year-old man child with aspirations of writing bizarre stories for a living!
Writing is my life and since I can remember it is something I have naturally done, be it silly stories at school or role-playing games during my teens. I was about 16/17 when I designed my first comic book series and since then have swung from idea to idea.
Then in March 2015, I released ONE BY ONE with the sole intention of getting one five star review. It far exceeded that and since then I have written DOORWAYS, which was signed up by Urbane Publications in September 2015 and released in October 2016. Again, the response has been overwhelming.
I saw my books hit the Waterstones charts but the end goal soon changed. I have since reclaimed the rights to Doorways and am now taking the Bermuda Jones series down the Self-Publishing route. It’s an exciting time.
I dream up rugged anti-heroes or crazy worlds on a fairly regular basis and I have promised myself they will all be committed to the written word. Believe me!
As always, you readers are more important than you know and I hope you will continue to read and enjoy. Also, make sure you sign up to the Reader Group!
