Publisher Description

At the stroke of midnight on my twentieth birthday, he comes in darkness and in blood. Elio Titone, underboss of Toronto's most brutal Cosa Nostra famiglia.

Turns out my father is massively in debt to the Sicilian mafia. Elio has come for one thing and one thing only – to claim what he is owed.

And what he's owed is me.

My captor is dangerous and demanding. Tortured, possessive, and wealthy beyond belief. He traps me in his gilded, violent world and offers me no hope of escape. But the longer I spend with him, with his dark eyes and scarred hands, the less I want to claw my way out of his cage.

When new enemies threaten me, I see a side of Elio I didn't know existed – a ruthlessly protective side. He forces me to do the one thing that guarantees my safety, even if it means I'll forever be his prisoner.

I'll no longer be shackled by debt, but by marriage vows.

Because he'll make me his bride.

A Debt So Ruthless is a steamy age-gap mafia romance featuring a morally grey mafia boss hero who becomes obsessed with the innocent, inexperienced heroine. Themes include captivity and forced proximity, hate to love, older hero younger heroine age gap, enemies to lovers, forced marriage, and other dark romance tropes. It is part one of a complete duet.

A must read

So good
Mafia romance with beauty and the beast vibes

A great darker-mafia romance!!!

Elio was compelling & I loved how unapologetic he was about how he is. I loved Deirdre had realistic reservations and was no wilting flower. The way they push away & come back felt very realistic & compelling. I am HERE for the sexual tension. The spicy scenes were a great balance of tension & payoff. All the characters felt real and were fun to read. I finished this book in less than 48 hours and I am desperate for the next book!!

I received an advanced reader copy of this book, and this is my voluntary, honest review.

“His touch on me, skin to skin, was incandescent and ruinous.”

Deidre is the daughter of a dude that is not very good at being fiscally responsible. He makes a bet with Elio and Deidre is the collateral. Deidre’s dad falls through, Elio comes to collect, and he’s awfully... protective.

This was the perfect level of dark for me, so much so that I told one of my best friends who has different tastes in books than I that I was going to get it for her too cause she would love it. I regret nothing. I loved this. Elio was the right blend of jealous and possessive and unyielding without degrading Deidre. And their scenes were scorching.

This hit just right; and by just right, I mean, I would lick the pages. Maybe the cover. I said what I said.
