The new life I built around what remained of myself began to crumble when a stranger walked through the door of my bakery.
A man who knew all of my secrets.

•Cover Reveal• Privilege by Bethany-Kris


by Bethany-Kris
Renzo + Lucia , #1
Publication Date: January 7, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

Cover Reveal Credits: London Miller


They didn’t come from the same world …

Born rich to a family of mafia royalty, Lucia Marcello was already destined to succeed. She wanted for absolutely nothing, until she met him.

Born poor to parents who never cared, Renzo Zulla was already destined to fail. He has struggled for absolutely everything, but she’ll prove to be his biggest fight yet.

She’s high society from the upscale suburbs.
He’s a drug dealer from New York’s slums.

They just weren’t meant to be … until they were.

What would it take to change a life—an entire perspective? All the things you thought you knew and wanted?

For them, it took thirty-six days.
And the privilege of meeting each other.

They shouldn’t be.
They don’t fit.
Love doesn’t care.

Note: Privilege is book one in a three-book trilogy following the same couple.



The young woman screamed money. From the Cartier watch on her wrist to the diamond studs in her ears. Even the way her wavy light brown hair had been streaked with red and blonde highlights looked like something that had been done in a proper salon. And that was before Renzo thought to figure out what brand of jeans she had decided to paint on that morning, or if that was actual silk she was wearing for her blouse.

Yet, even through the money she might as well have been draped in, Renzo wasn’t so distracted that he couldn’t see Lucia was pretty.

That was a bit rude, really.

Beautiful was a better description.

She was tiny featured. Small lips with a perfect cupid’s bow. A button nose. High cheekbones. Soft lines on her face, and an even softer smile. She was petite in height, maybe only reaching his chin, but that didn’t detract from the shape of her hips or the tight cinch in her waist.


He needed to get laid if he was noticing how nice looking some spoiled little rich girl from the other side of the city was. And he really didn’t need to be thinking about getting laid while he was holding Diego.

“Hi, Lucia,” Diego said. “Miss Teresa said you’re gonna work here now.”

Oh, for fuck’s sake.

Lucia nodded, and smiled back at Diego. “That’s right.”

Her gaze drifted to Renzo again.

“What?” he asked.

“I was thinking about offering you two a ride home. It’s late, and your little brother looks like he’s had a rough day. I don’t know how far you live from here, but do you really want to carry him the whole way?”

Renzo’s jaw stiffened. “Like I don’t do it every other day?”

Lucia didn’t miss the bite in his tone if the way her smile faded was any indication. Maybe he took a little bit of satisfaction in that, but he wasn’t about to admit it. Renzo wasn’t the type to be an asshole just to be an asshole. But here he was.

Something about this chick made his nerves stand up on fucking end. Like little hairs that felt something annoying or bad, and were reacting to it being too close.

He knew exactly where Lucia Marcello came from, and she was nothing like him. A privileged little girl who probably never knew what it was like to struggle, or walk the streets day after day because she wouldn’t eat otherwise.

He doubted she knew any of that kind of shit at all.

And for some reason, it just irked him like nothing else that she was so willing to stand there like she was and act as though there was no difference between the two of them. As if the two of them were somehow on level ground when it came to the rest of the world. Like she wasn’t wearing designer and silk while he was running around in frayed jeans and a leather jacket that he’d won from a bare fist boxing match three years ago.

Like her heels didn’t have red soles.

And his combat boots weren’t scuffed all to hell.

He was the poor kid from the Bronx.

She was the trust fund baby with mafia connections.

Oil and water.

Lucia seemed to pick up on his hesitance to take a ride from her, and she shrugged. “It’s just a ride, you know. You seemed angry inside, and I thought maybe I could make it a little better.”

Renzo arched a brow high. “Better?”

“That’s what I said.”

“A ride isn’t going to make my life better, Lucia.”

He didn’t miss the way her throat jumped when he said her name, or how her pretty mouth drifted open a little more. He was noticing too much about this chick, and at the moment, his brother was getting heavier by the second on his arm.

He figured, why not let Diego decide? His kid brother always had a better feeling about people than Renzo did. It was a talent, really.

“What do you think, Diego,” Renzo started to say, “should we ride with her?”

Lucia huffed a bit.

Diego just smiled. “Yeah, Ren.”

That was that.

“Guess we’ll take a ride,” Renzo muttered.

Lucia’s hazel gaze glittered when she smiled brilliantly all over again. She even did a little bounce on her feet that only added to her sprite-like joy.


He was noticing way too much.

“Hot-Blooded is hardcore; no holds barred, throw you to the floor and rip your heart out.” Reviews by Mel

“Hot sex, kick-ass female lead character, paranormal, suspense, and tons of emotion. I couldn’t put it down.” Filmchick

To Keahilani Alana, family is everything. When her mother dies, Keahilani must take charge of her siblings, but with an underage brother and no education, she’s out of both money and options–until she discovers the valuable secret her mother hid on the slopes of an extinct volcano.

Blake Murphy is an assassin working to infiltrate a Hawaiian cartel. He’s got his sexy surf instructor Keahilani pegged as a criminal–and not just because the passion between them is too hot and too dirty to be legal.

But the secret Keahilani discovered is bigger–and darker–than ties to a drug ring. As reality unravels and exposes truths about her family that should have remained deep under the mountain, Keahilani must either resist the call of her blood or risk losing everything to its darkness.

When Keahilani’s family is threatened, the only cure for her hot-blooded fury is a loaded clip with a body bag chaser.

Book Review: T.A. By Jamie Begley!


Cuffing season was supposed to be about finding a hook-up to keep her warm during the cold Kentucky winter nights. T.A. wasn’t looking for Mr. Right; she just wanted Mr. Available.

That was before she met Dalton Andrews. The widower was nursing a broken heart, and the only thing he wanted was a woman to take his grown kids’ minds off worrying about him.

It was supposed to be a trade-off—he would keep her warm and toasty during the nights, and she would put up a smokescreen in front of his kids during the days. It was a win-win situation.

That was until the famous actor decided he wanted out of the deal and Mr. Available was a no-show during the biggest snowstorm of the year.

Poor schmuck didn’t realize that all the drama he had experienced in Tinseltown was nothing compared to dealing with this bitch.

My thoughts 💭


I love this series but Dalton has to be my least favorite guy. I completely felt for him grieving for his wife but after a while I was kind of over her being brought up. He was constantly hurting T.A.’s feelings then giving her the cold shoulder or kissing her. I was so glad when he finally gave T.A. what she needed. T.A. seemed hard but she had a heart of gold. I just loved her. I thought the book was well written and I enjoyed the drama and secrets!

•Cover Reveal• Conor by A. Zavarelli

Title: Conor (Boston Undercover)
Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2018


When I stumbled into a mafia run club seeking a job, I was looking for protection. Little did I know I’d need protection from him.

Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended.

He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.

So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ve learned to do what’s necessary to survive in this world, and that includes marrying a mobster. Regardless of what he might say, it’s only temporary.

It’s not like I’m going to sleep with him. Or fall for him.

Because that would be stupid, right?
