The Desire in Deception by M.L. Philpitt

Lives are spent, sometimes wasted, chasing a dream—a happily-ever-after—only to end up living in reality. Caterina Bellini knows, for a woman, life in the mafia means having her future picked out for her, but even on her wedding day, she continues to dream of a happy ending. Until he arrives and snatches her away, locking her inside his own gilded tower, making her a prisoner. Lorenzo “Enzo” Corsetti is more than a villain though. He’s a villain with a need to reclaim what was stolen from him. Driven by revenge and hate, Caterina’s a pawn in taking back his empire. In the end, happily-ever-after is a façade and the bad guys always win. The Desire in Deception is a dark mafia romance with content some readers may find triggering. This is a prequel novella to the Fractured Ever After series that was originally published in the Heartless Heroes anthology.
