A Mafia Romance
Contemporary romance for readers over the age of 18 years.
It was in a small room in a hotel in Washington, DC that my life changed forever—again.
My son, Gerry, had hit his nose causing a river of blood to run down his chin and onto his dress shirt. Sam and I had taken him from the party to clean him up when all hell broke loose.
As we crossed the reception of the hotel, I noticed a man—one of the many security detail Robert had installed to ensure his fortieth birthday party was not disturbed. He watched me leave the ballroom and just as I entered the restroom, I heard him speak.
“Can I help you?”
I hadn’t turned to look and see if he was addressing me—I was too focused on Gerry. I had enough time to grab a fistful of hand towels before it happened.
Before an invisible force hit me like a tank and I was thrown forwards, landing heavily on my side. My ears rang, my vision was blurred and my heart raced in fear.
What had just happened?
A cloud of something grey swirled into the room. Was it dust or smoke? I wasn’t sure. My brain couldn’t compute what I saw, couldn’t comprehend what was going on. I heard screams, I heard shouts, but the ringing in my ears distorted the sound. The solid oak door to the bathroom hung from one bracket, a gap had formed but not wide enough for me to see through clearly.
The sound in my head lessened, replaced by the shrill of a fire alarm. Splatters of water hit my face. The smoke, or dust, must have triggered the sprinkler system.
I heard a moan and it was as if fingers had snapped in front of my face—my son was lying somewhere on that cold tiled floor.
“Gerry?” I called out. My voice sounded strained even to my ears.
“I looked at him – his olive skin, his dark eyes and his crooked nose – and knew I would follow that man to the ends of the earth no matter what he did.”
“I lay beside the man that had turned my world upside down and watched him close his beautiful black eyes. I watched his breathing deepen until he drifted into sleep. There were no words to describe the depth of feelings I had for him. Love wasn’t enough. He owned me – body and soul.”
“If Travis really likes someone, he’s rude to them for some strange reason. Hence the reason he’s still single. He doesn’t quite get it.”
“Where Robert was concerned, there were no equals – not even me – in his family. It had taken me five years to accept that. He respected me, he loved me unconditionally, but for him to keep me safe, keep my child safe, he had to rule.”
“Did I tell you today how much I loved you?”
“No, but you can if you want.”
“More than life itself.”
My mind is blown! I am in awe at the surprise ending that was perfect and satisfying, yet left me still wanting to continue this fascinating and addictive story. Tracie Podger has mad skills. The conclusion to this series was highly emotive, action packed, heartbreaking, sensual, and intense with intrigue, emotion, and suspense. It was – breathtaking, stunning, stellar! My feeble mind is still processing the shocking revelations at the end – I fear I am overwhelmed and flooded with superlatives. I am beyond sad to bid them farewell.
