Her Rebellion by Quinn Marlowe
Get ready for a story of romantic suspense, unlike anything you’ve read before… Quinn Marlowe’s Her Rebellion is the sixth book in the New York Rogues: Rossi series, but readers can jump into this gripping mafia series at any time. This first installment of Dax and Dante’s story is a page-turning dive into the underworld of warring Italian crime families in New York.
The Rossi brothers don’t want Dante involved in their family business. She should keep her hands clean, go to school, study something useful — and keep her mouth shut. Instead, Her Rebellion opens with Dante Rossi, the princess of the family, dodging bullets in a getaway car, rescuing her friend Brooks Peterson from being caught in a war between the Rossis and Brennans versus the Carusos and Massimos. These crime families have been warring for a while now, a feud that has left bodies in its wake.
Before long, the Rossi family forms a plan to infiltrate someone else’s camp and get more information on the current war. But there’s only one hitch — they need someone the target won’t recognize. And that someone is Dante, whose biggest dream has been to be included in her family’s affairs. Is she ready to risk her life on an assignment that will make her a real Rossi?
Mafia Families and Unexpected Alliances
Dax Romano is the most powerful man in the entire city, and he wants this war to be over. So when Dante reaches out for a meeting with him, his curiosity gets the better of him. And of course, it is lust at first sight for Dax and Dante. “He was terrifyingly beautiful, and beautifully terrifying.” But is their mutual attraction enough to forge an alliance between them? Or will the war get in the way? With a target on Dante’s back, numerous attempted assassinations, and the uncontrollable heat between her and Dax, the path to peace is complicated.
When Dante gets kidnapped by someone Dax thought he could trust, things turn dark as he uncovers a suspected mole in his inner circle. Dax is determined to ally with the Rossi family and get revenge on the Massimos for what they did to him — and to find the Rossi princess and end the war once and for all.
Thrilling Suspense Series
Quinn Marlowe has written a fascinating main character with Dante, who is easy to root for as she gets herself into dangerous situations that she is more than capable of getting out of — especially with the Rossi brothers and the handsome Dax Romano on her side.
This tense budding romance between the princess of a mafia family and a handsome man 20 years her senior is a must-read for anyone looking for a suspenseful story filled with danger, passion and complicated family politics. With shootouts in restaurants, chases through the woods, kidnapping, conspiracies and steamy tension, romantic suspense readers will be delighted by this first installment in Dax and Dante’s story.
Will Dante make it out alive and help her family unravel the conspiracy against their families? Will she and Dax break the tension between them and give in to their temptations? Readers will be eager to find out in the sequel to Her Rebellion.
