★ RELEASE BLITZ ~ Machiavellian By Bella Di Corte ★

Title: Machiavellian (Gangsters of New York, Book 1) 
Author: Bella Di Corte 
Genre: Mafia Romance  
Release Date: May 8, 2020 

Machiavellian is the first of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series. 

I hungered to be seen.
 There were three things I knew about Capo Macchiavello: He was gorgeous. He was reclusive. He was considered one of New York’s most savage animals. And he wanted me as his wife. A simple arrangement – you do for me, I do for you. Nothing owed, no expectations. Except for one: never leave.
 Life was never that simple, though. By the age of twenty-one, I was parentless, jobless, and homeless, and I had come to learn the hard way that nothing was ever free. Even kindness comes with strings. Capo might’ve been the only man to ever see me, but I had made a vow to myself: I would never owe anyone anything. Most of all, the man I called boss.
 I killed to stay hidden.
 Mariposa Flores thought she owed nothing to no one, but she owed everything…to me, the ghost the world had once called The Machiavellian Prince of New York.

I have read everything that this author has penned so far, but this is absolute best thing she has written to date!!

The female main character is Mariposa who is really down on her luck in all aspects of her life. She gets an opportunity that looks promising and even though she has no idea what's she's getting into, she takes it. Capo is out for revenge based on something that happened in the past that will slowly unravel as the story unfolds.

These two characters were wonderful together. Mari, Capo's butterfly, was a strong woman. and she was so good with Capo. This book was both romantic and suspenseful. Machiavellian was a tremendously great story! I look forward to the next book in the Gangsters of New York series.

"The first time I saw you, you tangled me up, Strings. They're still wrapped around my heart...."


Capo & Mari

Whoever said When you reach the bottom thins will start to get better. She had no money because she had no job. She had no home because her scuzzy landlord kicked her out when she missed the rent and refused to find "other ways" to pay him. Isn't homeless and broke the bottom?

She'd never taken chances in the past. She never owed anyone. If she was given something she paid in some way, never with her body. When a chance came this time she took it. (the circumstances would be a spoiler) The man she'd seen twice before happens to be the man offering a way out. Was she ready for an arranged marriage?

I have to admit I am not usually a Mafia Genre fan. I love the author's work so took a chance and really enjoyed the story. It is emotionally charged, steamy, with interesting characters and family love and hate. I strongly recommend the book to fans and others who enjoy a good romance and much more.

Reviewed for Words Turn Me On

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.
 Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three crazy dogs.  
 Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.
 She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her at if you’d like to reach out.
