Publisher's Summary

Maddox–Mad Dog–White hates everything the name Vitiello stands for, after he witnessed his father and his men getting butchered by the Capo of the Italian mob in their territory. Raised by his uncle, the president of the Tartarus MC, Maddox is destined to follow in his footsteps. Now their chapter is on the rise again, but for their ultimate triumph they need to destroy the Vitiello empire. And what better way to do it than to steal the spoilt Vitiello princess and break her piece by piece until her father begs for mercy.

Known as the spoilt princess of New York, Marcella Vitiello grew up in a golden cage. If your father is the most feared man in New York, people gift you with reverence.

Destined to marry the boyfriend approved by her father, Marcella is sick of being treated like an untouchable porcelain doll.

She resents the life forced upon her by her family until everything she took for granted is ripped from her. Where she’s now, her name doesn’t bring awe, only pain and humiliation.

If you’ve grown up in a high castle, the fall is all the deeper.

Sins of the fathers have a way of catching up, who’s going to bleed for them?

Someone needs to make a movie/series

From the jump starting with the very first book I’ve followed this family. Through the Camorra chronicles and now the Vitiello children. Such great stories and I loved Growl too! Please someone not passionflix but a REAL series. It would beat outlander in my book!

THE BIKER & THE PRINCESSA ❤️🖤 OUTSTANDING🖤❤️

Having listen to, and loved, the Born In Blood Mafia Chronicles I knew I should wait until both books in this 2nd gen Duet were released. So the wait was hard.. but then, oh the joyful, giddy anticipation, because it was finally here.. and OMG the two books were stuffed full and overflowing with all the delicious goodies I love. There’s suspense, intrigue, sexual chemistry, star-crossed lovers, danger, violence, tested family loyalties, enemies-lovers, sex and swoons in the doomed story of a badass Biker falling in love with a virgin Mafia Princessa.

Maddox and the Tartarus MC hate the Vitiello Mafia familia and the feeling is mutual. Many years ago, when five year old Maddox witnesses the brutal bloody massacre of his father and Club members by the enraged Don Luca Vitiello, Maddox swears revenge. So, present day, Marcella Vitiello is a pawn taken from her Father’s guilded cage and thrown into a filthy fighting dog’s cage to await her unknown future. Which will include abuse, degradation, humiliation, torture and shame.. but it will also lead to her rebirth too as she rises like a Phoenix from the ashes of her kidnapping with strength, fortitude, dignity, determination.. and the selfless love of her biker. But, will Maddox give up his revenge, his friends, his family, his lifestyle and his Club for her and, if he does, how will he survive the Vitiello anger, distrust and hate.. or is the cost going to be too great?

I really questioned how these two soul-mates could ever get to a reasonable ending never mind a happy ever after one.. but this talented author slowly worked her magic and built a bridge over the chasm between Maddox and Marcella’s violent worlds. She skilfully picked off enemies on both sides and placated others. She infused the action-packed chapters with angst, drama, violence, chills, tension, suspense and bloody betrayals. She gave strength, character growth and purpose to her characters and filled their hearts with love.. and yes, she delivered a blissful happy ending I thought I’d never see. Wen and Kai delivered five star performances as they brought the book, its cast of characters and wealth of feels to life which made it hard to pause or stop this exciting dual POV story.

Worth a credit? I have hours of downtime thanks to Covid.. but thankfully this Duet has been both my salve and my salvation when I needed it the most. And yes, both books are very creditworthy.. and I’m looking forward to whatever comes next from Cora Reilly.
