Deadly Sins

by January Bain


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Contemporary Romance (Mafia)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Book one in the Irish Mafia Kings series


Blood for blood. Her family killed my brother, so I’ll take their princess.


I’m Quinn Lyons, Irish Mafia King, a man known for getting what he wants, and I want her, Aria Byrne. I’m going to make her pay for her family’s sins.


I didn’t intend to snatch her from her fancy engagement party, just kill her rival mobster father, but plans change in the heat of the moment. Now she’s mine to claim and possess, because what better bargaining chip could a Mafia boss have than the beloved princess of a rival family?


Until I decide I don’t ever want to let her go.

EXCERPT


Quinn


My brother and partner-in-crime knocked then strode into my office at my bark to enter. “The Cullen brothers are wanting a word.” A slight twitch under Devlin’s right eye told me the story. “You want me to keep them waiting?”


The Cullens were in deep shit for thinking they could get away with stealing from my family. I should keep them cooling their heels all night. But hell, it might be more fun to torture them. I could use a good workout.


“Give me five and send them up.”


Devlin nodded and looked like he was about to say more before changing his mind and exiting. I shifted—the Irish king, ready for action.


Stepping up to the one-way glass overlooking the main venue of the Emerald Club, I scanned the crowd, alert for possible signs of trouble. Our family hadn’t risen to the upper echelons of Montreal’s crime families by turning a blind eye. No, we’d done it by an eye for an eye, the golden rule.


“Power isn’t handed to you. It’s seized, by whatever means necessary.”


Amen, Dad. Rest in peace.


I was a true son of my father. To everyone else, I was a monster, mob boss, a killer, king of the underworld, a man who took what he wanted. One exception to the rule—I don’t hurt innocents. But for clarity’s sake, innocence was a rare commodity in my world.


I glanced over at the huge oil painting of my father painted at the height of his power, his posture stern on the straight-backed chair, his eyes dark and shadowed, a man never to be crossed. My mother stood behind him and his four sons lined up by his side.


“Family. Honor. Security. Protecting everything we had struggled for over the years—that always comes first, son.”


I honored his words with a nod. We might have arrived on the shores of North America starving and in rags, but since then we’d fought tooth and nail to rise and take our proper place in society, aligning ourselves with people and places that mattered.


“Never forget where you came from, Quinn…or what you will die for.”


I will find his killer, Da, I promised both my father and my baby brother, Mikey.
