Title: Violent Delights

Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 19, 2019


“She is
mine.” Three words from two different men.
A life, future,
and love I don’t get to choose.
In the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and
betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But this feud isn’t between enemies. It’s
between brothers. And I’m the prize.
I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves.
Heiress to a life others have killed for, and one I’d do anything to escape. I
vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his
ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a
man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best
soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants.
Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother’s arms.
