About the Author:
USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.
Kat’s been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
Half past thirty and still single, my father rode my ass daily about getting married, starting a family, and looking the part. I needed to soften my enforcer image and have the outward appearance that I was on the straight and narrow.
When I argued that I wasn’t ready to settle down, he explained that no one ever was, and none of them ever did…with a wink. I laughed, until I thought about my mother. I might be a tough guy in a dangerous world, but I wanted a woman who could handle me at my worst and positively adore me at my best. Was that so much to ask of a wife?
There’d only ever been one girl who came close to that: Marla. She was plenty tough herself. She had to be. She grew up in the world, as well. And when she came to me asking for help to avenge her brother’s death, I was more than happy to help . . . for a price.
Marriage. To me. A mafia capo . . . the very thing she swore she’d never do.
Heartless Sinner is the first book in the Made for the Mafia series. Each book in the series stands alone and ends in a guaranteed HEA.

Minnie — The Reckless Kings told me it was pointless to pine after Satyr. I kept offering myself to him, hoping he’d see me as something more. I was a fool. All that man will ever see when he looks at me is a club girl. I’ll always be trash in his eyes. So when the President offers me a chance at a new life, I grab on with both hands. It might mean living with yet another club — the Devil’s Fury — but once I meet Doolittle, my entire world turns upside down. I’d thought myself in love with Satyr, but I was so very wrong. Doesn’t matter. Same situation, different man. I might be starting my life over, but Doolittle knows what I am, what I’ve been… and he’ll never want someone like me as his old lady.
Doolittle — Beast asked a favor and I gladly agreed. I have no problem with a woman who wants a fresh start. Before I even met Minnie, I’d offered to let her work at my clinic. I don’t know what I expected. But the stunning woman who shows up leaves me tripping over myself. I’ve never met anyone like her before, and the instant connection between us is startling. Just one problem. Well, three. The first is Meredith. The girl won’t take no for an answer and is determined I’ll be hers. The second is that Minnie feels unworthy of being mine. I’ll just have to prove her wrong. The third I never saw coming, and it just might change everything.
WARNING: Doolittle is part of the Devil’s Fury MC romance series and contains bad language, violence, and adult situations. You’ll also find entirely too many adorable animals, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

Harley Wylde is the International Bestselling Author of the Dixie Reapers MC, Reckless Kings MC, Devil’s Boneyard MC, Devil’s Fury MC, and Hades Abyss MC series.
When Harley’s writing, her motto is the hotter the better — off the charts sex, commanding men, and the women who can’t deny them. If you want men who talk dirty, are sexy as hell, and take what they want, then you’ve come to the right place. She doesn’t shy away from the dangers and nastiness in the world, bringing
those realities to the pages of her books, but always gives her characters a happily-ever-after and makes sure the bad guys get what they deserve.
The times Harley isn’t writing, she’s thinking up naughty things to do to her husband, drinking copious amounts of Starbucks, and reading. She loves to read and devours a book a day, sometimes more. She’s also fond of TV shows and movies from the 1980’s, as well as paranormal shows from the 1990’s to today, even though she’d much rather be reading or writing.

The group pushed through the screen door that separated this room from the next and immediately fell silent. A hush permeated the room, and the only sounds came from the fans that stayed on all the time to give proper ventilation in the greenhouse.
The group slowly looked skyward and marveled at the exotic large trees growing there.
Huge flowering trees of every description provided a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes.
Bougainvillea with large sprays of blossoms in red, orange, and yellow grew in shaggy bushes along the windows of this room in the greenhouse complex. A torch ginger grove was in the middle along with overflowing hibiscus bushes. The hibiscus was in such profusion that their large showy blossoms intermingled with the other jungle-like plants to create a sea of tropical flora.
This display room felt as humid as a Florida afternoon in mid-July, and there were tiny swarms of gnats that could not be gotten rid of. This was the most mysterious of the rooms, as the layout of it did not give viewers an unfettered glimpse across the span of the room. Overstuffed, indeed overplanted, with the most magnificent palms and tropical plants, it was an entire tropical jungle stuffed into a terrarium-sized space.
Heather laughed, breaking the spell, and said her glasses had fogged up from the intense humidity of the room.
“I feel like I’m on a set for the film Jurassic Park,” Jasmine’s husband said.
Holly also recovered her composure, but being awestruck was the most common reaction to the trees in the Tropical Forest Room, even for those who saw them every day.
For infrequent or new visitors, the effect was simply jaw-dropping.
This room alone earned the Shellesby College greenhouse complex the prestige of one of the top five greenhouses in the world.
“Well,” Holly said after the oohs and aahs had simmered down, “unfortunately, I have another story to tell you. I might hate this story even more than the bat story, but it is integral to why you’re here today.”
The group waited in anticipation.
“Simply put, your donations have made this room what it is, no more and no less. Without you, we would have faced a catastrophe. The college and I are forever in your debt.”
“Can you explain the catastrophe?” Heather asked. Holly nodded painfully.
“One of my many jobs here is to be in charge of the plant donations. Two years ago, we received a donation of a wonderful Guadalupe palm specimen. This was a mature tree, and it is, in fact, on the world’s endangered list, as it is native only to Guadalupe Island in Mexico. To have one in our collection was a true highlight for the greenhouse that year.”
“That sounds amazing,” V said. “How was it a catastrophe?”
