Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep. –Robert Frost

I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I’d be the very monster I was protecting her from.

She didn’t know it was me.

She didn’t know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don’t sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out–I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I’ll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato’s perfect angel would pick me–over her perfect life.

“I broke you,” I confessed.

“The worst part… is that you liked it,” she snapped right back.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.


Scandalous Prince (Mafia Royals, #2)Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not going to lie… I’m still processing this book. After seeing the early, early thoughts I thought I’d need a box of tissues. NOPE! More like I needed a giant bottle of vodka! Good lawd! I need to remember to read these in a padded room, so when I want to throw my phone at the wall I don’t break it. Every time I dive into the mafia world that Rachel has created, it’s like it takes a bit of my reader soul and never gives it back. I’m in so deep there’s no way I can get out. Not that you’d ever want to. Blood in, no out.

This twisted tale of Breaker and Violet is one that will have you taking long draws from the bottle and pulling your hair out. One choice is like a drop on a calm lake, the rippling effect it can have in your life is so far beyond your control, you’ll never see it coming. One choice of Violet’s sets things in motion that will mess with the crazy balance the EE Family works hard to maintain. The heat between Breaker and Violet will burn the cathedral to the ground, and when a mysterious figure comes between them the balance is tipped in a way you will NEVER see coming. In true mafia tradition you will find lots of blood, secrets, and alcohol involved between these pages, and I LOVE it! By the time I was done, I could only stare at the wall in shock.

Rachel never does things in halves, so be ready for new characters to appear and tasty secrets to come to light. I’ll forever be addicted to the EE family and their kids. Make sure you read Royal Bully and Ruthless Princess, cause boy you don’t want to miss out on all the little connections that make this world so intense. Again… Blood in, no out.
