Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles

Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles
A steamy contemporary romance series for those who like diehard bad boys and sexy alpha males. Sin has never been sexier. 

Bound by Honor (Book 1)

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 
Now at eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.
In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who can just as easily kill as kiss you.
The only way to escape the marriage to Luca would be to run away and leave everything she’s ever known behind but Aria can’t bear the thought of never seeing her family again. 
Despite her fear, she decides to go through with the marriage; Aria has grown up among predators like Luca and knows that even most cold-hearted bastards have a heart and she has every intention of working her way into Luca’s.

Bound By Duty (Book 2)

Dante – The Boss – Cavallaro’s wife died four years ago. On the verge of becoming the youngest head in the history of the Chicago mafia, Dante needs a new wife and Valentina was chosen for the role. 

Valentina lost her husband, too, but her first marriage had always been for show. When she was eighteen, she agreed to marry Antonio in order to hide the truth: that he was gay and in love with an outsider. Even after his death, she kept his secret, not only to preserve the honor of a dead man, but also to protect herself. But now that she’s about to marry Dante, her castle of lies threatens to crash. 

Dante is only thirty-six but already feared and respected in the Familia, and he’s notorious for always getting what he wants. Valentina is terrified the wedding night will reveal her secret, but her worries prove unfounded when Dante shows her the cold shoulder. Soon her fear is replaced by confusion and indignation. Valentina is tired of being ignored. She’s determined to get Dante’s attention and desire, even if she can’t get his heart that still belongs to his dead wife.

Bound By Hatred (Book #3)

When Gianna watched her sister Aria getting married to a man she barely knew, she promised herself she wouldn’t let the same thing happen to her. 

Matteo – The Blade – Vitiello set his eyes on Gianna the moment he saw her on his brother Luca’s wedding, and Rocco Scuderi is more than willing to give his daughter to him, but Gianna has no intention of marrying for any other reason than love. A few months before the wedding, Gianna escapes her bodyguards and runs away. She has enough money to flee to Europe and begin a new life. But staying undetected when the mob is searching for her is a challenge that takes everything, especially as one of their best hunters and assassins is after her: Matteo Vitiello. 

After six months on the run, Gianna finally settles into a tentative routine in Munich, but then Matteo and a couple of her father’s soldiers find her with another man. 

Despite her pleads they kill her boyfriend, and Gianna is forced to marry Matteo. Her emotions alternating between guilt over having dragged an innocent into her world and hatred toward Matteo, Gianna is determined to make life hell for her husband. But Matteo is a master at mind games and their struggle for power soon turns into hate-fueled nights of passion.

Bound By Temptation (Book #4)

Liliana Scuderi has been in love with Romero from the moment she first saw him. After her sisters were married off for tactical reasons, she hopes she might be allowed to choose a husband for herself, but when her father promises her to a man more than twice her age that hope is crushed. No begging can make him change his mind.

Romero has always ignored Lily’s flirting. Her age and status made her off-limits but even someone as dutiful as him has only so much control. Wanting her when she’s supposed to marry another man could mean war between New York and the Chicago Outfit, and Romero has always put the Cosa Nostra first.

Lily suspects her sisters and Romero would risk everything for her, but is her happiness worth that much? Is love worth a war between the Cosa Nostra and the Outfit?

  11. I finished Bound by Honor in one day and I'm addicted into the story. I love the characters in the story. I think Bound by Honor is the best one in the series .. I really fell in love with Luca's character. He is really protective to what is his. And the soft side of him only for Aria; that's sweet. Please don't make us wait to long about the next story of them. I really want to know more about them. And I think we all will be thankful to you if you could make the next novella about Luca and Aria longer so we could still know about them. I really love the book so much and I couldn't stop thinking about the character. If you could make another story with the hero and heroine like this one I would be really happy to read the story. I keep search in Goodreads about another story which have the similarity with Bound By Honor, but nothing close to it. That's because it's a great story. So please don't make us wait to long about the novella :) and please write more stories like Bound By Honor ..

  31. So I'm getting the impression no one is updating anymore?
    Even the Bound by Vengeance cover hasn't been updated on this site.
    Like the previous person said... We'd all just like an update an acknowledgement of some kind as to what's going on.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just found this site after finishing Bound by Temptation and searching for the advertised next volume of the Born by Blood series, Bound by Vengeance. Does anyone know when it will be published? Looks like it's past due.

  36. I've just read Bound By Hatred, for the millionth time! I love these books so much! Is it me, or would the perfect end to Scuderi be Gianna and Fabi taking him out, Pulp Fiction style?? The two of them taking turns shooting him in the face?!?! Too violent? Too soon? I wonder who Fabi ends up with? Also, Dante's employee Gaby deserves a nice HEA. Bibiana deserves a nice ending as well. Cora Reilly, let me know if you need inspiration for these books!!! I love them so much I already have my own dang endings for all your fantastic characters!!!! Just keeeeding. Just kidding. But really, I can't wait to meet the Las Vegas family. Good luck with your books. I really do hope life has calmed down for you. Lots of love. ��
