Guest Blogger: April Zyon with HIS KILLING PRINCESS

She was confident that her love had forsaken
He was certain that she was only ready to milk
him for his money.

Killing Princess
First, book 2

Antonio Bruno always knew that secrets and death were a part of
the life he chose, so he never intended to fall in love with Emily Reynolds, a
woman who embodies innocence. He attempts to shield her from his life as second
in command of the Italian Mob, but sometimes the best-laid plans can come apart
at the seams.
Emily is no stranger to secrets herself.  One thing she’s
always been truthful about is how much she loves Tony. When a home invasion
steals her from his life, one twisted lie turns into another, pitting these two
lovers against one another.
Despite the odds, there’s a chance Tony and Emily can fight to
save their relationship. That’s if they aren’t killed in the process of finding
the traitor in the midst of the Italian Mafia. Can these star-crossed lovers
weed through all of the deception? And
how far are they willing to go to be together?
Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, spanking



Emily and Antonio met by pure chance. She had been thinking of
their meeting just as much as she had been thinking of their past, mostly
because she was thinking of a future with him. She was thinking of a future
with him because of another huge secret she was holding from him.
She sighed and closed her eyes. God, she had so much to tell
him. She just prayed the man would understand. Then again, he was a killer as
well, with a code as strong as her own. She lay in their bed and waited for
him. As soon as he entered the room, all thoughts of telling him anything flew
out the door and instead she knew he needed to simply forget. They had been
together for five months, in that time they hadn’t used protection from the
first moment they got together which brought her to the thoughts she was having
about their futures now.
That was the thing about them sharing professions. She could
read his body language better than he likely knew she could. Emily rose to her
feet and walked to Tony. As she moved toward him, she stripped out of her
negligée and stood before him in all her naked glory. She knew what he saw.
Emily wasn’t shy about her body any longer. She now embraced her womanly
attributes, and that was all thanks to Antonio.
She had scars, ones that couldn’t be hidden but had been
explained away easily enough with the smallest of lies, ones she had hated to
tell him and couldn’t wait to tell him the truth on. As he had told her before,
her breasts were the size of ripe grapefruits, her skin a pale milk color, and
her hair as red as fire. Or so he liked to tell her.
She moved to Tony silently and began to strip him of his
clothes, loving the way her pale skin looked against his very dark skin.
Sliding Tony’s shirt from his body, she scraped her nails over his beautifully
toned six pack abs and looked up into his troubled eyes. “Hard day?” she asked
while working on his pants.
She felt emboldened by this man. It was hard to imagine that
before him she had been a virgin. She had killed a hundred horrible men but
never had taken a lover. Tony had been intense, wonderful, and she had known
from the moment she met him that he was the one for her.
“You have no idea, sweetheart.” Tony took her hand in his and
shook his head. “You know that is not how I play.” He growled lightly at her
and then leaned down, taking one of her nipples into his mouth and suckling
hard. “I do love being greeted at the door by you naked, however. From here out
I think you should greet me like this when I come home, but only when I text
you and tell you I’m coming home alone. I would hate to kill a friend who saw
my woman naked.”
She shivered. Had any other man demanded anything of her like
that she would kill them and leave their bodies for the cops to find. Period.
She wasn’t one to be commanded, but with Tony, it turned her on. She seemed to
need it. “Yes, Sir.” She bowed her head in supplication. She knew she would do
anything he asked her to do. She would because she knew he would always ensure
she had pleasure, no matter what. Tony would do anything for Emily just as she
would for him.
“Are you hungry?”
“Only for you, Emmy girl, only for you,” Tony said only a second
before he picked her up and carried her to their bedroom.
Emily held back her laughter when he tossed her on the bed,
because she saw the look of sheer bleak need on his face. She reached back,
grabbed the headboard, and watched him strip. He all but radiated the need to
control, the need to dominate in a way that eclipsed anything they had ever
shared before, and it almost scared her, almost.

His Mafia Princess Blurb: 
Gregorio Bosco worked his way up the ranks of The Family. He
never had trouble killing, selling, or anything he was tasked to do. He’d been
trained to take over for Giovanni when he stepped down, but that all changed
when Alessandra was taken. She was the only good in his life, and he’d do
anything in order to protect her—no matter the cost to anyone around him.
Alessandra Morello was born into a life that she didn’t
understand. She thought she was the daughter of a wealthy industrialist,
