Govada Di Giordano is hell-bent on staying in the shadows…where his word is the law. He’s brutal, hot-blooded, menacing and… so tempting.

She was rash to think she could resist a man as intoxicating as sin, dripped with arrogance, and ruled his underground world with an ironclad fist.

Obsessed with bringing down the Italian Mafia in Aregua, women's right advocate, Sasi Quintero takes a huge risk. The stakes are high, taking her down a dangerous dark road. There’s no turning back now as she comes face to face with Govada Di Giordano. Tested and taunted by the man behind the mask, Sasi must also face the darkness that lies within her when she finds herself languishing as his prisoner.

No one crosses Govada Di Giordano, aka Pope, and lives to tell the story. When Sasi strikes at the heart of his organization, he takes her captive. One thing he’s good at is breaking his enemies and making them pay. But when he handles Sasi, she defies him, sparks fly and he finds himself confronting the demons within with devastating consequences.

Is Sasi ready to give up everything, including her life to take down the killer Heart of the Mafia? Or in pursuing the Mafia Don will Sasi lose her heart to Govada, the guy she should hate?

Click on this thrilling, suspense-filled, enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity dark romance featuring a merciless, no-morals Mafia Don and a street-bred, women's rights advocate who matches his vicious streak.

WARNING: Trauma. Violence. Mature. This book contains scenes that might trigger sensitive readers. Please read responsibly. Pope is the first book in the Brutal Cousins Series featuring Di Giordano cousins.


“What’s the problem, Sasi?” Govada arched one eyebrow. “You don’t like what you see?”


“You’re not my type.”

Regardless of her accusations earlier that he coerced submission from his sexual partners, he knew too many women who would kill to get into his bed.


That was the truth but Sasi was not one of them. In his head, that tiny fact was not good enough. He was Govada Pope Vincenzo Giordano and his name opened doors up and down the corridors of power in Aregua and, in the entire continents of North and South America.


All his life, he had always had any woman, any frickin’ woman he desired, and that list must now include Sasi, the women's rights campaigner turned his personal prisoner.


“Who’s your type?”


“Not you!”


Shaking her head, she kicked her restrained feet and her tits jerked up and down in her skin-tight black jumpsuit towing his eyes down to her cleavage.


Suddenly, all he could think about was whether, or not her tits were as perky as they appeared.


“Take off your clothes, Sasi!”


“What the heck?”




“You would have to rip it off. I’m not giving you that pleasure, Pope.”


“Why? You think you’re too good for me?”


“I don’t want you, Pope. Get it through your skull.”


“I wasn’t asking.”


“That’s what I thought. Frickin’ monster!”


“Don’t make me do it!”


Riled by her lack of respect, he strode to stand in front of her, grasped the button-down outfit by the neck, and pulled it apart with force, ripping it off her shoulders.


Several buttons circled in the air, hitting the ceiling and settling down on the rug in peace.

Looking down at her ripped outfit, she gasped in shock. On his part, he growled and backed away like he had been struck.

ABC began planning for a version of Golden Bachelor in 2020 but was ultimately stalled by the pandemic. The network released a renewed casting call for the show in early 2023.

The show's description reads, "After over 20 years of fostering young love on The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise, The Golden Bachelor showcases a whole new kind of love story — one for the golden years. On this all-new unscripted series, they give one hopeless romantic a second chance at love in the search for a partner with whom to share the sunset years of life."
