Title: King of Bourbon Street
Series: The Mafia's Throne Duet #1
Author: Aidée Jaimes
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 29, 2021

Whoever controls Bourbon Street, is King.

I was born to rule, made by my father into the ruthless Boss of the Marcone crime family. My seat, a throne made of leather and gunpowder, forged by blood.

Now, a new threat has come to challenge my position, testing me for weakness by sending me the lovely Irish Rose.
Her sweet scent is a lure, her green eyes a weapon meant to seduce me until I lower my guard. And the secrets she holds the final blow meant to bring me to my knees.

I will take sweet Rose and make her mine. But she will never infiltrate more than my bed. Never come near my throne. And I will never let her in my heart.

I am Enzo Marcone, and I am the King of Bourbon Street.

***This is not a standalone novel. It is the first book in the Mafia's Throne duet.***

A smile quirks one side of my mouth. “Rose, why are you here?”

“I…I’ve come seeking asylum.”

Frowning, I sit up. “From what?”

“From…” She chews her lower lip as her delicate hands wring the strap of her bag. “Please let me stay with you.”

“You want to stay in my club?”

She shakes her head. “I’d hoped you’d take me home with you. The club is part of your house, isn’t it?”

My lips part, though I don’t respond, because I can’t. A battle spurs to life inside me, with my body instantly ready and primed, screaming, Fuck yes! while the sane part of my brain says it would be a mistake. It’s a trap.

“I’m sorry, but I can’t. You need to go.”

“I can’t go back,” she says in a small voice. “Not without completing my job.”

“What job?” My eyes narrow as I study her. “Rose, were you sent here?”

“Yes,” she admits, peering at her lap and chewing on her bottom lip.

“Look at me,” I command. When she lifts her gaze to me, I scrutinize her. “What were you sent here to do?”

“You’ll kill me if I tell you.”

“I’ll kill you if you don’t.”

She swallows hard, probably remembering the gun I had pointed to her head last night, then blows out a breath before she says, “I’m here to seduce you. To find a way into your home and into your bed.”

“My bed.” I laugh, thrown off by her honesty.

“Men talk after they fuck. When their guard is down.”

“What sort of information are you after?” I ask, though I can already deduce.

“Weakness. Dillon Callaghan wants to know what your weakness is.”

“Well, sweet Rose, I’m sorry to inform you that if you make it into my bed, you’ll be sorely disappointed to find I have no weakness.”
