Release Blitz ~ The Power of a Woman by Gina Whitney and Leddy Harper

~ Release Blitz ~
Title ~ The Power of a Woman
Authors ~ Gina Whitney and Leddy Harper
Genre ~ Mafia Erotic Romance
Release Date ~ Monday January 7, 2015
All of us live with a demon inside. Some days, you control the demon. And other days, it controls you. But the one thing that never changes is that it’s always hungry. It feeds on lust and longing. You may slumber, but the demon never sleeps. It tempts you into crossing every line you’ve ever drawn, and all the while, it tests you, haunts you. And once it has turned your loved ones into enemies, the demon has consumed you whole. ~Jordana

Jordana Albanese grew up in a world that spun with lies, secrets, and multiple sins. Her father, Gene—reigning king in the Mafia for the last few decades—never protected her from his underworld dealings (La Coso Nostra). She learned at a young age that in order to survive in her world, one must be dominant. She wore the shield of control on a daily basis, but all she wanted was to slip it off and discard it like yesterday’s laundry. Except, letting it go would mean letting it all go. And she didn’t want that. She learned of a compromise—to let go of control in private, behind a closed door, with the orders of him. Not simply to be controlled, but to be dominated. The only problem was that her ambitions cut bone deep. Deeper than her Dom’s belt on her ass. Deeper than the marks from the restraints he used to subdue and pleasure her. The enduring marks were not visible to the human eye. They were profound wounds—scars—on her soul that only she could feel.

And that’s where she found the perfect balance in the two. Her submissive tendencies served her well in the bedroom. However, in public, she was very much as dominant as her male counterparts.

Review by Tiff A- "5 Spontaneously Com-bust Corsets!"

When I found out this short story would be transitioned into a full length novel I don't think I could have been more excited. The fact that it was being co-written by two amazing authors was a total bonus! 

While my favorite genre is no secret- what can I say... I like it HOT, I have never read anything quite like this! 

By the time you finish this you will surely think one or both of the authors has true ties to the mafia. The story is so 'alive' with detail and amazing visual description, giving the reader that all too important feeling of being inside of the story. I absolutely love losing myself in great characters which only truly gifted authors can actually accomplish. The writing is so smooth and flows so brilliantly. Gina and Leddy definitely delivered- in spades! 

Jordana comes from a historic mafia family, and that's just it...times are changing and her old man is not. Little does he know his baby girl has fallen in love with a rival mafia families up-and-coming son, back in town and ready to take over! When she tries to save her little brother from a gambling debt, will she get in over her head? Will things ever be the same? What will happen when both families find out they are now forever linked, whether they like it or not? They will have to survive during dangerous shifts in power and come out the other side. Or will they? 

You do not want to miss this one! Truly a gem of a book that will keep you enthralled from page one to done. 

A little taste of one of my favorite parts- one of many! 

"His lips too mine hungrily, his tongue not wasting a second before consuming me, filling my mouth. His appreciation became evident the moment his hips pressed roughly into mine. And the growl that rumbled in his chest had my excitement nearly running down my inner thighs." ~ Jordana

Leddy Harper

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.
She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.
She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
