COVER REVEAL: Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken

What a great cover! This looks like such an intense read, and I know Rachel Van Dyken loves to straddle that line of right/wrong, so it’s sure to keep you in a state of gut-wrenching angst. She is such a talented author and I love many of her books, but I’ll be honest… this series is too dark for my tastes. Many readers are LOVING it though, because Van Dyken is so talented. It’s all a matter of personal preference in regards to how dark the characters get.

This blurb is definitely enticing, so if you haven’t started the series yet, I’m going to make a recommendation. Check out the free prequel first. Each book is a standalone, but they’ll read much better together. The prequel is not a great love story, but it IS a great introduction into the world Van Dyken has created. If you like mafia romance where the characters get their hands dirty, chances are that you’ll love the series. You can grab the prequel here.

If you’ve already started the series, Scandalous Prince is the follow up to Ruthless Princess, and it honestly has me tempted to dip my toe back into the mafia waters. I won’t be reviewing the series, but I’m definitely going to keep it in mind if I’m in the mood for something twisty.

Check out the premise below – Scandalous Prince releases September 22nd!


A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The Woods are Lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep —Robert Frost

I was born in secrecy for a purpose nobody will tell me, only that I’m mafia royalty and should be protected. I promised to take the secret to my grave until I realized the very secret that could save her would damn her in the process.

She didn’t know it was me.

She didn’t know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well as have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don’t sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out—I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to save her, thinking our friendship would bring her back.

But what they don’t know is that I was the one that destroyed her innocence.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I’ll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell for ever thinking Chase Abandonato’s perfect angel would pick me—over her perfect life.

“I broke you,” I confessed.

“The worst part… is that you liked it,” she snapped right back.

She wasn’t wrong.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.
