Description

The mafia men of New York Times bestselling author Sarah Castille's Ruin & Revenge series are hard, hot, and ruthless. They show no weakness and take no prisoners. But the right woman can soften their stone cold hearts and make them come alive with dark desire.

Luca Rizzoli was nearly destroyed by a brutal betrayal that cost him his family. Now a ruthless crime boss in Las Vegas, he lets nothing touch his frozen heart...until a smoldering encounter with a beautiful stranger ignites his passion. One night isn't enough for a man who takes what he wants—and Luca will do whatever he can to possess his mysterious temptress...

Police detective Gabrielle Fawkes lives for revenge. She lost everything at the hands of an unforgiving ruler of the Vegas underworld. Now she wants to see him six feet under. But when a near-fatal attack leads her into Luca's arms, what was meant to be one night of unbridled passion becomes something forbiddingly more. Luca has his own agenda, but when strong, determined, kick-ass detective Gaby sets her sights on her target, Luca feels compelled to stand by her side and protect her at all costs. However, pursuing danger comes at a high price—and both Gaby and Luca must work together in order to eliminate the dark enterprise that threatens them, in Luca by Sarah Castille.

        Starred review from May 29, 2017
        Castille’s second Ruin and Revenge novel (after Nico) returns with a bang to the world of the Mafia. Las Vegas police detective Gabrielle Fawkes is determined to bring her husband’s murderer—a ruthless drug dealer—to justice. After being shot in the course of the investigation, Gaby finds herself sharing a hospital room with Luca Rizzoli, a mobster with a mile-wide honorable streak. They hook up, but when he learns she’s a detective, Luca tries hard to break up with Gaby—and fails. Their explosive chemistry makes both of them forget all the reasons their relationship could be dangerous. Then someone shoots up Gaby’s house, with Gaby and Luca inside. Castille throws in a dizzying array of plot turns, including a gaspworthy unveiling of the killer’s identity. With sizzling love scenes, taut plotting, and a hair-raising finish, Castille’s romantic thriller will appeal to her existing fans and win her new ones. Agent: Laura Bradford, Laura Bradford Agency.

        May 15, 2017

        Castille's second "Ruin & Revenge" novel (following Nico) centers on hardened crime boss Luca Rizzoli. After taking a bullet to the chest, Luca finds himself rooming with beautiful police detective Gabrielle Fawkes at a Las Vegas hospital. Instantly drawn to each other's stark differences, Luca and Gaby discover that they share equally painful histories. The playboy mobster is shocked by his own behavior around this woman who defies his usual "type" with her quiet beauty and independence, while Gaby is unseated by her heady attraction to this opulent alpha male. Their steamy tale of seduction is peppered with the dark twists and turns of a Mafia mystery, as Gaby strays onto the other side of the law with Luca's help and learns her husband's tragic death may not be a closed case after all. VERDICT An engrossing erotic crime drama that will leave readers wanting more.

shortDescription

Luca Rizzoli was nearly destroyed by a brutal betrayal that cost him his family. Now a ruthless crime boss in the city of sin, he lets nothing touch his frozen heart—until a smoldering encounter with a beautiful stranger ignites his passion. One night isn't enough for a man who takes what he wants, but his mysterious temptress has slipped away.

For two years police detective Gabrielle Fawkes has lived for revenge. But a night of indulgence with a sexy stranger changes everything. Powerful, charming, and deliciously dangerous Luca, has his own private reasons for offering to help her pursue the drug lord who killed her husband. There's a lot Luca isn't telling her and the more she finds out the less she wants to know.

When Gabrielle becomes the target of the drug lord she has vowed to hunt down, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in a mobster's hands. To save her, Luca must break his Mafia ties—or risk losing Gabrielle forever.
