Cover reveal: Bound By Hatred!

Guys, today I get to reveal my favorite cover of the Born in Blood series (so far). I know many of you are eagerly awaiting Gianna's and Matteo's story.
So here it is, the cover for Bound By Hatred:


Summary:
When Gianna watched her sister Aria getting married to a man she barely knew, she promised herself she wouldn’t let the same thing happen to her. 
Matteo – The Blade – Vitiello set his eyes on Gianna the moment he saw her on his brother Luca’s wedding, and Rocco Scuderi is more than willing to give his daughter to him, but Gianna has no intention of marrying for any other reason than love. A few months before the wedding, Gianna escapes her bodyguards and runs away. She has enough money to flee to Europe and begin a new life. But staying undetected when the mob is searching for her is a challenge that takes everything, especially as one of their best hunters and assassins is after her: Matteo Vitiello. 
After six months on the run, Gianna finally settles into a tentative routine in Munich, but then Matteo and a couple of her father’s soldiers find her with another man. 
Despite her pleads they kill her boyfriend, and Gianna is forced to marry Matteo. Her emotions alternating between guilt over having dragged an innocent into her world and hatred toward Matteo, Gianna is determined to make life hell for her husband. But Matteo is a master at mind games and their struggle for power soon turns into hate-fueled nights of passion. 


I hope you love it as much as I do! You can already pre-order Bound By Hatred!

The tentative publication date is May 1st, 2015, but I hope to publish it before then.

Review Appreciation Contest: Get Luca's POV!

As you probably all know, reviews are very important for an author. That's why I thought it was time to show my appreciation for those who have already left a review for Bound By Honor, and entice the rest of you to follow suit! :)
I know many of you have been asking for Luca's point of view, so I thought why not write a couple of chapters from his perspective (I don't have time to write more right now) and send it to reviewers as a thank-you gift.
You probably want to know what to do. Here's the deal:
Write a review for Bound By Honor (at least three sentences, pretty please.) and post it on Amazon, or Barnes&Noble, or Kobo. Of course I'll love you eternally if you post on all three sites, but for the purpose of this "contest" it's enough if you leave a review on one of them. After you've done that, send me a link of your review to this email: reilly.cora@rocketmail.com
If you have already posted a review, of course that counts as well. Just sent me the link.
You have time to post your review and sent the link to me until February 8th. I'll then send you two scenes of Bound By Honor from Luca's POV (the wedding night will definitely be among them) in the week after the 8th.
I so can't wait to delve into Luca's mind! I hope you are as excited about this as I am!
It would be nice if you could spread the word about this! <3

Cover reveal: Bound By Duty

I finally revealed the cover of Bound By Duty, the second book in the Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles!

Dante – The Boss – Cavallaro’s wife died four years ago. On the verge of becoming the youngest head in the history of the Chicago mafia, Dante needs a new wife and Valentina was chosen for the role. 

Valentina lost her husband, too, but her first marriage had always been for show. When she was eighteen, she agreed to marry Antonio in order to hide the truth: that he was gay and in love with an outsider. Even after his death, she kept his secret, not only to preserve the honor of a dead man, but also to protect herself. But now that she’s about to marry Dante, her castle of lies threatens to crash. 

Dante is only thirty-six but already feared and respected in the Familia, and he’s notorious for always getting what he wants. Valentina is terrified the wedding night will reveal her secret, but her worries prove unfounded when Dante shows her the cold shoulder. Soon her fear is replaced by confusion and indignation. Valentina is tired of being ignored. She’s determined to get Dante’s attention and desire, even if she can’t get his heart that still belongs to his dead wife.


You can pre-order it here! Amazon lists the pub date as March 14th, and that's the latest date it'll be out, but I'm really hoping to publish it Mid-February. Right now, it's looking really good, so I'm hopeful! 
I can't wait to share Valentina's and Dante's story with you! But you will also meet familiar faces again: Aria and Luca will make an appearance in the book!

Here's the full spread: 
And a teaser!
