Development Pitch

Can you love the man and overlook the occupation? Is his dark, dangerous, and domineering personality too much to stomach? Or can you love the man, embrace the occupation and become as dark and dangerous as the lover you have chosen? There are many characters and side stories within Books 1-3. My readers are never bored. I incorporate the Italian and Greek traditions, culture throughout the story. There's suspense, heart-shattering moments, humor, violence, and erotica. Both female and male leads are extremely strong but need to be as Capo dei Capi and his queen. Asimina becomes just as vicious as Raffaele. It is said your fate is sealed at infancy, love, happiness, and sorrow. Asimina Alexiou is impulsive, brave, vibrant, and independent. She finds herself with unwanted attention. She sought help from her cousin, a man that is nothing less than a brother. However, Petro has secrets of his own. That will land Asimina in the hands of one Capo dei capi Raffaele Dante Morelli. Raffaele the crime boss of the biggest mafia family across the state and Europe. His close, inner cycle of men are in positions such as underboss and capos running extensive drug and gun operations throughout multiple sectors. Raffaele's training has prepared him well, for a life of crime. However, none of that training will be of any use to him, when he's dealing with one Asimina Alexiou.
