In Their Hands

About this ebook

My father sold me to the devil: an arranged marriage with Dante Torrio, sadistic capo and would-be usurper. But before their bargain is complete, I’m stolen away by Luca Vitale, heir to the Vitale crime family. I’m a pawn in a brewing mafia war, a captive bride in a power play between two cold-blooded monsters.


I hate Luca for forcing me into marriage, but he’ll do anything to mold me into his obedient wife. The longer I remain trapped with him, the more I come to crave the dark pleasure my unyielding husband offers me. He is fiercely possessive and jealously guards me. He protects me from his enemies, especially Dante, who is determined to steal me back.


Which fate would be worse? To belong to the ruthless mafia prince or to the devil himself?

This book had me on the edge the whole time. It started as an arranged marriage to this guy then Boom! Kidnapped. Then forced into marriage which made you change your mind about the new guy, but that wedding night was freaking dark and sexy. Then Boom!! Kidnapped a freaking again by previous the first guy which does care about her well being but has a really dark and twisted kink going which you'll have to find out, but the ending of this cliffhanger had me going "what the h*** did I just read!". In other words, this is a must read if you want a dark, sexy book to read. Can't wait for the next.

It has been awhile since I've read a Julia Sykes book. I've missed out and need to back track to see what I've missed. She writes well with intriguing storylines and complex characters. After finishing this book, my heart is still racing a week later! I have to admit that at this point, I'm not liking the men. Neither have jumped out at me as deserving. But this cliffhanger, and how it will all work out, is killing me!! The steam is still rising as well. Cannot wait for the next book!
