I should despise him for all he’s done to me…
But behind those dark eyes, I see his pain.
I recognize his conflict because it’s ours to share.

Now, I’m a pawn in a new war.
Stolen by a stranger, I’ve been taken to a foreign land.
My fate rests in the fragile truce between our families.
They will tear this world apart to find me.

Read Kay’s Review: Tainted Blood

Cora Kenborn is a USA Today Bestselling author who writes in multiple genres from dark and gritty romantic suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. 

 
Known for her sharp banter and shocking blindsides, Cora pushes her characters and readers out of their comfort zones and onto an emotional roller coaster before delivering a twisted happily ever after.
Cora believes there’s nothing better than a feisty heroine who keeps her alpha on his toes, and she draws inspiration from the sassy country women who raised her. However, since the domestic Southern Belle gene seems to have skipped a generation, she spends any free time convincing her family that microwaving Hot Pockets counts as cooking dinner.
Oh, and autocorrect thinks she’s obsessed with ducks.

Tainted Blood; Corrupt Gods #2
(#2 in a duet)

Publication Date: July 10, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Mafia/Dark Romance

Author: Cora Kenborn and Catherine Wiltcher

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars 4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A tale not for the faint of heart. Full of brutality and lethalness, but at the heart a tale of love.

Santi and Thalia’s story continues in Tainted Blood where a lot of the book they walk their own path. Thalia has been kidnapped and Santi has to figure out not only who kidnapped his bride, but then how to rescue her.

Thalia certainly comes into her own in this story. There is no holding back while she’s kidnapped and Thalia has to come to terms with who she becomes and the consequences if she ever escapes. Will life ever be the same and can she go back to who she was before this nightmare?

Santi may have married his mafia princess for nefarious reasons, but now that she’s missing unknown feelings for his bride rise to the surface. He will stop at nothing to find her and bring her home safely, even if he has to set her free upon her return. The big question he has to face is if she will return when he does.

Santi and Thalia are from two families that have crossed paths time and time again, could their union finally end the bloodshed between them? Could their families finally call a truce? Will their marriage bind them forever or will it end things forever?

Tainted Blood is not to be read as a standalone as it’s part of a duet. 4.5 stars overall.

Blog Tour – Bad Blood by Cora Kenborn and Catherine Wiltcher

Release Date: May 12
 

 

Thalia Santiago is the daughter of my enemy.

A beautiful rebel with a single cause.

Impulsive.

Fearless.

And ripe for her father’s undoing.

 

I recognized her the moment she stepped into my casino.

I watched her start the fires that burned her pretty fingers, and then I poured gasoline on the flames.

Now she’s in my debt, and her dues are a shiny gold ring and a vow of deception.

 

I’ll bend her.

I’ll break her.

I’ll turn our mockery of a marriage into a battlefield.

And that river of bad blood that flows between our two families?

I’ll make it an ocean of hate.

Review – Bad Blood by Cora Kenborn and Catherine Wiltcher

50999683. sy475

Bad Blood; Corrupt Gods #1 
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: May 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Mafia/Arranged Marriage/Dark Romance

Authors: Cora Kenborn and Catherine Wiltcher

Review Rating: 4 Gold StarsThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1368-7.jpg

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A slow burning, dark romance set in the mafia world. Two families pitted against one another, but also bound by a generational feud. Perhaps it’s time the youth finally sets turns the tide on the war.

The title of the book is perfect for the long standing feud between the Santiago and Carrera families. Bad Blood goes back long before Thalia Santiago and Santi Carrera ever met, but the feud is still in existence when Thalia walks into Santi’s casino.

Thalia is trying to help her sister, Ella, when she finds herself caught in Santi’s web and the only way out is through a forced marriage. Caught between two different forms of blackmail which led her to Santi’s casino in the first place, Thalia is just trying to survive all of the alpha males who live in her world. I like the spunk and sass in her attitude. She doesn’t take being a cartel princess lying down and it’s exactly the backbone she needs to survive as Santi’s new wife.

Santi Carrera never saw himself getting married, but when Thalia walked through his doors she presented him with the perfect opportunity to expand his business along the east coast. She was in deep and he had an offer she couldn’t turn down. There is nothing better for business than using his own personal pawn for an advantage and he will take everything from Thalia and her family while giving nothing in return.

While there were a lot of moving pieces to the mafia moments, there were some nice twists that I rather enjoyed. Thalia’s quick witted spirit and Santi’s outspoken sister were other ones. I think these bold women will be a driving force as this duet continues and I will certainly enjoy reading how they bring certain men to their knees when the time comes.

The overall romance was a slow burn, which didn’t grant a lot of tension to build between Thalia and Sant. The mounting tension was directed more between the warring families and Thalia’s personal issue, so the couple didn’t get to spend a lot of time together in the beginning. Just as the chemistry really started to mount the book ended on quite a cliffhanger…so I’m sure there will be a lot more coming in the second half of this duet.

Synopsis:

From Cora Kenborn and Catherine Wiltcher comes Corrupt Gods, a brand new arranged marriage mafia duet.

A Santiago is a lesson in ruin.
A Carrera bleeds for revenge.

Thalia Santiago is the daughter of my enemy.
A beautiful rebel with a single cause.
Impulsive.
Fearless.
And ripe for her father’s undoing.

I recognized her the moment she stepped into my casino.
I watched her start the fires that burned her pretty fingers, and then I poured gasoline on the flames.
Now she’s in my debt, and her dues are a shiny gold ring and a vow of deception.

I’ll bend her.
I’ll break her.
I’ll turn our mockery of a marriage into a battlefield.
And that river of bad blood that flows between our two families?
I’ll make it an ocean of hate.

*This is book 1 of a new dark romance duet, releasing May 12th. Tainted Blood, book 2, releases June 9th.
**Bad Blood is set in the Santiago and Carrera worlds, but it is not necessary to have read either trilogy beforehand.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Obsession and forbidden dark romance, this anthology is filled with everything taboo. Yummy!

I chose Erin Trejo’s MC romance, Devious Obsession, and her short story did not disappoint with everything forbidden.

Both Harley and Devious were watching one another from across the way. Looking at each other through the windows or rooftops of where they lived, a deep obsession began without ever seeing much more than a body shape or shadow outline. It certainly made for some wicked fantasies, but that was all it was. Stalking one another from a distance, until it became more.

However, Devious did have an advantage, he actually knew who Harley was, so her form actually had a face when he gave into his fantasies. Harley was also off limits as she was the daughter of his rival MC. Even though he knows she is off limits, it doesn’t stop him from stalking it only makes it more tantalizing.

This story is super delicious, extra streamy and dark, while all wrapped up in a short story. I loved it.

Author: Catherine Wiltcher
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2020
BLURB

They call this place the Billionaires’ Playground.
I, Aiden Knight, staked my claim the minute I arrived.
I crossed every line.
I painted their Rococo ceilings with blood.
Now my casino is the hottest church in town,
And vice is the only confession required.
My house.
My rules.
Until the past comes calling with an offer I can’t refuse:
One week to seduce and break her…
For the names of the men who killed my father.

Issa Dubova is the queen of cloudy diamonds:
She’s a hard truth concealed beneath a pall of lies.
I’m an Armani black suit of spades:
Determined to bury both her and my demons.
I never asked to see the shape of her heart.
I never asked for her to fill the blank spaces of mine.

But the mafia wants her secrets.
I wasn’t the first she betrayed.
And Issa? Sweet, not-so-innocent Issa?
She’s gone and left me with a debt no sinner can pay.
