Savagery. Sin. Depravity—-these are my virtues.
My name is Dante Sovrano, head of the Chicago Mob, and I run this city.
Everyone bows down to me.
The moment I saw Sarah, I knew she’d be trouble.
She’s fiery and cutthroat, wrapped up in a lickable package.
But there are dark secrets hiding behind those gorgeous blue eyes.
And I plan to know them all because she’ll have to make a deal with the devil to solve her problems.
Too bad the devil always takes your soul.
And I’ll be keeping it—
Because Sarah London is mine.

Some of my greatest pleasures in life start with D: dark romance, dangerous anti-heroes, dick and now Depraved. Despite my decent collection of signed paperbacks from this author, I hadn’t delved into reading her writing and the experience of finally committing was joyous in numerous indescribable ways. With an enthralling combination of dark mafia setting and taboo themes, my attention was charmed and ensnared from page one; rendered riveted as dangerous events unfolded.
Dante has a presence; you can feel him in the room. Everyone can. He is a dangerous, powerful man, and that’s catnip for this pussy.
As Chicago’s ruthless and dangerous leader, innumerous enemies lurk within the shadows for Dante Sovrano. Dominant and controlling, this anti-hero is used to having command over everything until Sarah, though her reticent attitude and own enemies doesn’t dissuade this man’s attentive interest. Dante’s attitude—the intense dominance and flowing confidence—makes him steadfast and determined to capture this woman, despite her secrets, creating an irresistible, near perfect anti-hero.
A fighter until the end. Breaking her is going to be the highlight of my day.
Sarah London, full of fire and strength, is an enigma obscured by unending secrets and clouded by mysteries. Defiant and feisty, there’s a darkness that follows her existence, shrouding it in neverending danger, but this darkness only amplifies her resolute nature. No matter her predicament, Sarah’s capacity to love and the lengths she’d go to ensure everyone’s safety couldn’t be deterred or ruined, a true testament to this heroine’s ability to be selfless and fearless.
“We’re depraved, Dante. I recognized your darkness because it’s mine as well.”
Chemistry that kindles and bursts with an intense ferocity doesn’t attempt to describe the connection between Dante and Sarah. It is explosive. Full of titillating dominance and potent submission, a sweet combination weaved together to deliver a suspense romance with passion that is undeniable as it simmers and crackles through the chapters. With a push and pull dynamic, the hint of vulnerability coursing through this relationship serves to create an atmosphere full of tension that leaves me riveted and wanting more from this series of dangerous sinners.
