Savage Hearts, the highly-anticipated third standalone in the Queens & Monsters mafia romance series by JT Geissinger is available now!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce sheโ€™s getting married, itโ€™s a shock. Sheโ€™s
not the settling-down kind, and we havenโ€™t spoken in almost three years.
Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancรฉ. Curious, I decide
to take her up on the offer.
I shouldโ€™ve known something was wrong when she wouldnโ€™t tell me where Iโ€™d be going. I
shouldโ€™ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But thereโ€™s no way
in hell I couldโ€™ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancรฉ.
Declan Oโ€™Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.
Now, Iโ€™m thousands of miles from home, Iโ€™m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and Iโ€™ve got a
Russian assassin whoโ€™s decided he likes the looks of me.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.

 

Excerpt

โ€œYeah. Ohโ€”can I ask you a favor? Will you please not hurt him? Kieran, either. Heโ€™s the other bodyguard. The bigger one. Theyโ€™re both really nice.โ€
Malek stares at me in disbelief.
โ€œSorry. Is that asking too much? Itโ€™s just that Iโ€™d never get over it if they got hurt because of me. Theyโ€™re only trying to do their jobs.โ€
After a moment, he says angrily, โ€œYou know who I am. You know what I do. Correct?โ€
โ€œYes. Iโ€™ve been filled in on the particulars.โ€
โ€œAnd youโ€™re lying there with my hand around your neck asking me not to hurt your bodyguards.โ€
He says it like my sanity is in question.
โ€œI know itโ€™s maybe a little unorthodox.โ€
โ€œNo,โ€ he says flatly.
โ€œPlease?โ€
He growls, โ€œWhat the fuck is wrong with you?โ€
โ€œThereโ€™s no need to get testy.โ€
โ€œTesty?โ€
โ€œIโ€™m just saying. You donโ€™t have to get all mad about it.โ€
Furious again, he glares at me, grinding his jaw and probably calculating how much pressure it will take to snap the brittle bird bones in my neck.
Before he does, I say, โ€œI also want to thank you for the rose you left me. That was really nice. Iโ€™ve never had a man bring me flowers before. I know it was only the one, and also you thought I was a captive prostitute at the time, but still. It was thoughtful. So thank you.โ€
He stares at me with an expression somewhere between confusion and amazement, with a healthy dose of disgust on the side.
โ€œNow is probably a good time to remind you that Iโ€™m still the same person you left the rose for. So if you did kill me, youโ€™d be killing her, too. Just a thought.โ€
โ€œAre you on drugs?โ€
โ€œNot at the moment, no. Why, do you have any?โ€
โ€œThereโ€™s something wrong with you. Mentally. Right?โ€
That makes me laugh. โ€œOh, totally. Iโ€™ve got more than a few screws loose. At least thatโ€™s what my dad tells me. But heโ€™s super uptight, zero imagination, so his opinion doesnโ€™t really count. Not that heโ€™s wrong, because he isnโ€™t, but normies shouldnโ€™t judge creatives. They just have no idea how weโ€™re wired. Why are you looking at me like that?โ€
โ€œIโ€™ve never had a conversation with an insane person before.โ€
โ€œVery funny.โ€
โ€œIt wasnโ€™t a joke.โ€
โ€œOuch.โ€
We stare at each other in silence. His hostile, mine hopeful. He still hasnโ€™t murdered me, so things are looking up.
โ€œMalek?โ€
โ€œWhat.โ€ He says it flatly. With dread.
โ€œThank you for not killing me.โ€
He says emphatically, โ€œDonโ€™t thank me yet.โ€
โ€œYouโ€™re still deciding?โ€
โ€œIf only to get you to shut up, yes.โ€
โ€œIn that caseโ€ฆโ€ I make a zipper motion across my lips.
He watches with outrage, astonishment, and absolute disbelief.
โ€œActually, before I shut up, I also want to say that it was really sweet that you tried to save me from being a sex worker. I mean, what a gentleman! A gentleman killer who gives strangers big wads of cash in restrooms. Youโ€™re quite the puzzle, Mr. Ghost. Or is it just Ghost? Iโ€™m never sure how the nickname thing works, except between me and my sister, but that doesnโ€™t count because my whole family is a little weird. Iโ€™ll just call you Malek, if thatโ€™s all right. Or Mal for short, since weโ€™re such buds now, what with you breaking into my various bedrooms for midnight visits and all. Okay, Iโ€™m shutting up now. Here I go.โ€
I press my lips together and gaze up at him, watching him struggle with dueling urges to cut off my air supply or break something over my head.
Maybe heโ€™s right about me being insane, because rather than terrifying, I find his indecision understandable.
Heโ€™s not the first man Iโ€™ve driven to the brink of murder. Heโ€™s just the most capable of actually going through with it.
โ€œOh, one more thingโ€”โ€
โ€œI know a way to keep that mouth quiet,โ€ he snaps.
Then he kisses me.

Lita’s 5 STAR Review:

Savage Hearts (Queens and Monsters #3) by J.T. Geissinger. When I first started reading this book I was worried because I hadn’t read the previous 2 books. Do not fret. This is a story about Riley. When she gets a call from her estranged sister who wants her to meet her boyfriend, Riley’s life gets turned upside. While at her sister and boyfriend’s house Riley finds herself on the radar of an assassin. Malek is a cold hearted killer seeking vengance for the death of his brother. When he sees a mousy girl in sweats, he feels like he needs to help her. I have never read this author and I am so glad I decided to read this book. I have all intention of reading the previous books. Riley is a firecracker. The interaction between Riley and her Sloane had me laughing so hard that there were tears in my eyes and my stomach hurt. Her interaction with Malek was hilarious as well. He couldn’t understand how this little thing could talk to him like that. The journey they went on had me loving their story. As scary as Malek is he is a really good guy regardless to his profession and through this story I was able to see what Riley saw. Yes the other characters are from the previous books but the story was told in such a way I was never confused and I was interested in their own back story. The book ended on a HEA for Riley and Malek but also set up for book 4. This author can really tell a story.ย  Lookingย  forward to book 4 and reading book 1 and 2. This book was a 5 star read for me.
