Title: Return To The Mob
Series Detroit Mafia #6
Author: Tami Lund
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: September 16th



Marco Romano is a former Navy SEAL with a habit of saving people from the mob and then helping them to disappear.

Until the mob catches up to him.

Now he’s desperate to avenge his parents’ death, but more importantly, he needs to protect his baby sister.

Because his estranged aunt wants to take his sister away from him—the only family she’s ever known.

Marco will be damned if he’ll let that happen.

Now he needs to win a custody battle, and the only way he can is if he looks respectable on paper. How can he do that?

By finding a good girl and convincing her to marry him.

Or at least pretending until the custody papers are signed.

Now his problem isn’t taking care of his sister or even taking down the scum who killed his parents. No, now his biggest problem is convincing himself he’s not in love with the woman who agreed to be his fiancée.

Despite her best intentions, Hillary Karney’s had one too many brushes with the mob. So what the hell is she doing back in Detroit, where it all started? And she’s hanging out with Marco Romano, no less, a man whose picture is probably in the dictionary under “caveman.” He wouldn’t know good manners if they slapped him in the face.

And now he wants her to help him win custody of his sister?

Of course she’s going to say yes; saving women from the mob is what she does. She’s built an entire career around it. But she’s not going to make it easy on him. She agrees—with a stipulation.

She’s going to teach him how to be a gentleman. He’s going to have to develop manners, common courtesies… and when she’s done with him, some lucky girl is going to snag herself a hell of a catch.

Too bad it won’t be her.

First Kiss:

Uh-oh. While Hillary appreciated the woman so willingly sharing this information, she needed to get Marco out of this office, pronto. His fury was like a living, breathing thing, and she could practically picture him as a dragon, shooting flames out of his mouth and burning this whole place to the ground.

Stepping more firmly in front of him, she said, “It was so nice to meet you, Mrs. Morgan. We so appreciate you and the rest of the faculty and staff here taking Julia under your wings. Here”—she grabbed a scrap piece of paper from the counter and wrote down her name and cell number—“Give me a call or text if you feel Julia needs something or if Patricia or any other family member happens to stop by. We just want to make sure we are aware of her entire environment. You understand, of course.” 

Mrs. Morgan accepted the paper while Hillary steadily moved backward, forcing Marco to go with her.

“Absolutely,” Mrs. Morgan said, pressing the note to her chest. “Thank you for entrusting her to us.” 

Hillary waved and then turned around and pushed Marco out the door. “Go, go, go,” she said when he didn’t move fast enough. 

They practically speed walked to his truck. He stepped up to the passenger side door, but then he clutched the keys in his hand and swore viciously before whirling around to face Hillary.

“She came here to Julia’s school.”

Seemingly benign words, but Hillary understood. “I know.”

He began pacing the length of the truck, clearly trying to burn off his fury. “Actually told them she was going to take custody.” 

“Well, to be fair, Mrs. Morgan said ‘if’ she takes custody.” 

He continued pacing, clenching and unclenching his fists. The anger radiating off him was not diffusing. They needed to get out of this parking lot before someone noticed him, yet Hillary wasn’t sure she trusted him to drive at the moment.

“Do you want me to—?”

He stopped in front of her. “Yes.” And then he cupped her cheeks and without warning, pressed his lips to hers. He dove his hands into her hair, tangling his fingers, tugging on the strands while canting her head before his tongue brushed against her lips. She gasped, and he thrust his tongue into her mouth. 

She wrapped her arms around his back and clutched at his T-shirt as if her legs might collapse if she let go. Which, frankly, was entirely possible. 

She’d never been kissed like this before. It was aggressive, feral, no holds barred…and so damn hot, she was half afraid she was going to burst into flames. 

She didn’t stop it, didn’t try to pull away. She pressed against him, taking it all in, reveling in every stroke of his tongue, every tingle between her legs, the hardness she could feel brushing against her belly. 

Gradually, the kiss shifted from hard and fast to slow and easy. He nibbled at her bottom lip and then trailed kisses along her cheek to her ear. “Thank you,” he whispered, his breath fluttering her hair. “I think I’m okay now.” 

He pulled away, and without looking her in the eye, opened the door and motioned for her to climb into the truck. He still didn’t look at her when he slid in next to her and cranked the engine. The atmosphere no longer vibrated with fury. 

“Did you just kiss me to alleviate your frustrations with this situation?” she blurted. 

He kept his gaze straight ahead, although she saw the slight lift of his lips. “I kissed you to diffuse the anger so I wouldn’t do something stupid. So now, instead of angry, I’m just frustrated.” 

“I understand.”

“No, I don’t think you do. I’m not frustrated over the situation with Julia. I’m frustrated because I want a hell of a lot more than just a kiss from you.”

I was tired. I was restless. I was irritated.

The trifecta of bitchiness.
So, when I saw him sitting at a table by himself, I stilled midstep, and my annoyance grew.

Why, God?

How dare he look so good when I could barely find matching shoes this morning.
He brought his espresso up to his lips as he read from the newspaper he held in his hands. I didn’t know why that got to me. Maybe because he looked so effortlessly relaxed, and my fragmented mind was being split in a flurry of puzzle pieces, none of which fit back into their original spaces.
My body rigid, my feet started moving, and they didn’t stop until I stood in front of him with a cold expression that could’ve set off the next big freeze. Before he even looked up at me, I hissed quietly, “This is my spot.”
Vik simply peered up at me with a furrowed brow. “No, it isn’t.”
Uh, excuse me? “Yes, it is. This is my spot. My café. You go get your own.”
And his grin had my heart racing with anger. “Firstly, I brought you here, so if we’re getting technical, you wouldn’t even know about this place if it weren’t for me.”
My neck flushed.
Oh, right. I’d forgotten about that.
Feeling stupid, I huffed out a short breath, threw up my hands, and said, “Fine. I’ll leave.”
As I turned to walk away, Vik’s hand shot out and gently but firmly circled my wrist. I twisted back to find his gaze had darkened some, and he uttered, “Stay.”
It wasn’t a plea nor a demand. I might’ve been delusional, but to my ears, it sounded like a wish.
My rigid stance loosened mildly.
Only one word out of his mouth, but I felt the caress of it all over.
I peered down at that hand. It held me firmly as his obsidian gaze locked me in. “I heard you’ve been spending time at Laredo’s. I know you’re smarter than to try to get the attention of a particular Frenchman, so I won’t warn you against it.” Those eyes sliced over the length of me. “You know better, don’t you, baby?”
Every fiber of my being screamed to sit and stay, but the insecure part of me told me to leave before we hurt each other. Against my better judgement, I sat opposite him, and because I often had trouble keeping my mouth shut, I said smugly, “Sounds like you might be jealous.”
The hand on my wrist flexed, and Vik held me down with his glacial gaze. “Wanna test that theory?”
My chest squeezed.
My ego was a petty bitch and hooted loudly, all for it. My heart thought nothing would be more romantic. But my brain, on the other hand, knew what Vik plus jealousy was capable of. And it wasn’t pretty.
Don’t get me wrong. I was never the target of his anger when he got like that. The men standing in his warpath, however, usually ended up with a split lip, a broken nose, or a concussion, or all three. And after it was all done and dusted, Vik would then take me home, take my mouth, and then take me roughly against the nearest surface, all while maintaining eye contact.
Ugh. It was so fucking hot.
The memory had my knees snapping together under that table, trying in vain to ignore the thrumming warmth that suddenly lit in my core.

Hmmm. Maybe we should test that theory after all.



Not a good idea.
My inner self pouted and called me a prude.
Not so smug anymore, I cleared my throat and asked, “What do you want from me, Vik?”
Refusing to let go, his thumb gently caressed the sensitive spot at my inner wrist, and without hesitation, he responded one word that shattered my resolve.
The way he said it, with zero hesitation, had my heart aching. I wanted that too. If only the stakes were even. If only he had as much to lose as I did. My heart was on the line. I wasn’t sure if Vik even knew how to access his.

Release Blitz: Less Than Strangers by Ember Davis

Title: Less Than Strangers
Series: Stranger Shoot Series #6
Author: Ember Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 26th



Are you interested in participating in a stranger photo session? It’s a fun way to meet someone new and take part in a unique experience. If you are single and in the Denver area, please fill out the form below. I will pair people as I see fit. All sessions will be free. I will post pictures from each shoot on social media. Each stranger session is different and will depend on the pair.
Maybe your soul mate is just a look away.
~Post on Ellie Banks’ social media


While other people my age are getting married and having kids, I just have my job and my dad. I don’t need more than that. Still, I’ve never been one to turn down a new experience and sign up for one of those stranger shoots I keep seeing everywhere. I don’t know the photographer and I don’t really care. It’ll be a better way to spend a little time than at the construction site or at home.

When I turn around, I’m met with an angel. I want to shower her with all the cheesy pick-up lines I know, but they won’t work on a girl like her. Lucky me, she feels the same way I do—like fate is giving us the chance we both need. Suddenly, the worst day of the week is my new obsession.

When I go to Dad’s house for dinner, I think it’s the perfect time to tell him I’ve met the love of my life. I’m not expecting to see Monday there or to find out I have a new stepmom. If anyone thinks that’s going to stop me from making Monday mine, they’re wrong.


I’m used to making my clients happy all day, a smile on my face and a sunny attitude. I’m not faking it, but I feel like I can do more, be more. I want to do so much more with my career as a make-up artist than brides and prom looks. I love the makeovers where I can show a woman how special she is, but my dream is editorials. I want to make make-up into art, true art that’s appreciated.

It might be self-serving, but that’s why I signed up for the photography session with Ellie Banks. I know if I can talk to her then I could make a connection…and maybe an opportunity.

I wasn’t expecting to be paired with Jameson. He’s got bad boy written all over him, but I know there’s something deeper there too. I want to find out what it is. I want to be his; it feels right. I don’t know what to do with the little fact that our parents are getting married, even though we had no idea. I might not know, but Jameson does.

If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. My Stranger Shoot Series are novellas that take place within the Denver Family world but is not part of the main timeline. Each book can be read as a standalone. Don’t be surprised to see characters from the Denver Family, other than Ellie, pop in.





Ember Davis loves alpha heroes with a range of emotions, but a strong sense of how to take care of their women.  She loves her heroines from all walks of life, just like her heroes, and she wants them to be real and relatable.  Her heroines tend to be sassy, opinionated and smart.

Ember is a stay at home mom of two who recently refound her love of books and all things romance and is so glad that she did.  She’s always been creative but writing and creating stories that she would love to read that satisfies the dreams she had as a little girl.  She loves butterflies, the color purple and enjoying time with her family. 

Pssst…it’s totally a pen name, but everything above is 100% true.
