“Forbidden to Love is mafia romance at its best.” -J.A. Owenby, International bestselling author
Forbidden To Love, an all-new dark, forbidden romance set in the same world as Condemned to Love by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!
Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.
But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.
So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.
Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia. A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.
Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.
Leo risked everything for the one woman he can never have. He doesn’t regret it. It saved Natalia from a life of hell, but his actions set her on a different course.
One that doesn’t involve him.
Years have passed, and his feelings remain the same. Yet he keeps his distance, dedicating himself to his new role as underboss to Bennett Mazzone, while the love of his life is married to another man.
Until a twist of fate puts Natalia in his path again, and this time, he is powerless to resist.
Forbidden to Love is Siobhan Davis’s latest standalone. You do not need to read Condemned to Love to fall in love with this book and it’s characters. If you haven’t read it yet, you definitely will want to afterwards. I have read all of Siobhan’s books and each one is unique and addictive in their own ways. This one is no different. I don’t want to spoil the plot so I will try to make this quick. The synopsis is perfection, really.
Natalia always knew she was going to marry a made man. Not for love. For business. And at a young age she was promised to a monster. She hated him and loved another. A man she would not be permitted to marry. Leo was her everything and she was his but they both knew it could never be. They had one night of happiness and years of torture. It was the only way. They had to put walls up and keep their hearts guarded. Their love never wavered but they had to keep their distance. Years of heartbreak, longing, and tension was all they had. It was better than death, right? Maybe…
Omg!! I love Natalia! She is a complete the badass I knew she would be. Leo is swoon-worthy and so f*cking romantic. I just love them so much. I had a feeling about this two and damn…more than expected and that is the norm when it comes to one of my favorite authors ever. I can’t wait for what she has up next for this family. The writing is addictive along with the story. The couple is beautiful in every way. ♥️
