New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert begins a smoking hot new series about the O’Malley family-wealthy, powerful, dangerous and seething with scandal.
Teague O’Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family’s name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a “business” alliance, Teague’s ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancée, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and vows he will do everything in his power to protect her.
Everyone knows the O’Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn’t aware just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. But the closer they get, the more trouble they’re in. Because Callie’s keeping a dark secret-and what Teague doesn’t know could get him killed.
Exciting! Take the Irish Mafia, add two people who just want happiness, add some others who are depraved, and what do you get? An exciting ride with lust, hate, love, and danger!
I have to say that this is one of my favorite themes (arranged marriage), and Katee did not disappoint. Her characters had depth, color, and clarity… they were diamonds! LOL! You’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about…
“…this man had both sides in him – the feral beast and the poet.”
Doesn’t that just make you want to know this dude?!?!?!?
There are times (many times) where characters traits and personality are murky – you love them, but you don’t 100% understand them. I found that each character in TMC was well defined, which made it easy to love/hate them. Don’t misunderstand, there are still twists and turns and though they may not be the most shocking thing in the world, they are well done and really add so much to the story.
I am super excited to that this is the first of a series because if the next book is about who I think it’s about, I am ALL OVER IT!!
About the Author
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way–as it often does–and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time–when not lost in Far Reach worlds–playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
