A Santiago is a lesson in ruin.
A Carrera bleeds for revenge.
Thalia Santiago is the daughter of my enemy.
A beautiful rebel with a single cause.
And ripe for her father’s undoing.
I recognized her the moment she stepped into my casino.
I watched her start the fires that burned her pretty fingers, and then I poured gasoline on the flames.
Now she’s in my debt, and her dues are a shiny gold ring and a vow of deception.
I’ll bend her.
I’ll break her.
I’ll turn our mockery of a marriage into a battlefield.
And that river of bad blood that flows between our two families?
I’ll make it an ocean of hate.
*This is book 1 of a new dark romance duet, releasing May 12th. Tainted Blood, book 2, releases June 9th.
**Bad Blood is set in the Santiago and Carrera worlds, but it is not necessary to have read either trilogy beforehand.
“The sins of the father are to be laid upon the children”William Shakespeare
It was great to get back into the world of Dante Santiago. I haven’t read the Carrera Cartel Trilogy yet but I certainly am going to get acquainted with them before the next book in this duet.
I loved it. After the wedding day scene I couldn’t help but wonder how this was going to go.
Thalia Santiago the enemy to Santi Carrera or so they’re told throughout their lives. They’re enemies. The hate lust between these two is sizzling.
True to the theme of dark romance. The book covers violence and trafficking. So trigger warning ⚠️
If you’re into cartel romances or mafia romances the this is the book for you.
I can’t wait to see what happens next and whether a truce is called between these enemies or if a new war is started.
