Defiant Princess

Defiant Princess: A Mafia Elite Prequel by USA Today bestselling author Amy McKinley is available for preorder. Or read for free when you join my newsletter.

Our senior year in college was supposed to go out with a bang, and it did, just not the way we’d expected.

Liliana Brambilla

If I could freeze time, I would.

The university my Mafia sisters and I attend is the one place I can get away and feel some sense of freedom—and escape from my father’s control and soon-to-be-announced, unwanted arranged marriage. If I could run away from my future, I would, and I’m not the only one.

Sofia La Rosa

I’ve loved Enzo Vitale all my life.

At one point, he was mine, and I was his. It was an allusion we were blissfully wrapped in. That bubble shattered even before I graduated from high school. The secrets scattered through our past were now like forgotten landmines ready to explode. He still considers me his, and in my heart, I will always be. For his sake, I need to keep him at arm’s length. Otherwise, I run the risk of losing him for good.

Emiliana Vitale

He’s the only man whose touch I crave.

I fell in love with Stefano Rossi before my life imploded, and I was taken from those I love. But our love is forbidden by his ruthless father and discouraged by my family. What they don’t understand is we’re both broken, and only together are we whole.

Marissa Rossi

My life is not my own, but neither are my siblings.

For the moment, I’m free, despite the noose around my neck in the form of an arranged marriage that will happen in a few weeks. That’ll be then, not right now. I still have time, even if it’s limited, to paint to my heart’s content and party all night long. I know the clock is ticking, so I’ll take every advantage of this small window—my last few weeks as a college student rooming with my best girlfriends—and live my life to the fullest.

We were born Mafia princesses, but we might as well be prisoners. As our college years draw to a close, we each have a fate we’re trying to escape. The question is, who will conquer the destiny laid before us or merely survive—and who will not?

They think I’m dead.

One of their own, broken and left behind. Now I’m back.

Stronger.

Murderous.

A killer.

They don’t know it yet. Nothing can stop the storm inside me until I right the wrongs that were done.

I’ve returned to Chicago to destroy a vital arm of the Cosa Nostra and reclaim what’s rightfully mine.

Then I met her, my mentor’s granddaughter—Liliana Brambilla. The one I swore to protect.

Beautiful.

Untrusting.

Strong, but broken.

She is a pawn in her father’s bid for power, unable to leave until he sets her free. The only means of escape is trading one prison for another in the form of her father’s choice of husband. 

He won’t give her to me, so I’ll take what’s mine and protect her body, mind, and soul. Then kill them all.

Collateral Damage (Mafia Elite, book 6)

I’ve craved Hailey from the moment we met. She recognizes my duality—as a Mafia surgeon, I’m both sinner and saint. But the timing of our meeting was all wrong, and I forced myself to walk away.

Months later, her father begs me to help him—I won’t. But then he told me someone had taken Hailey, and I knew I would do anything to save her.

Except when I find her, I decide to play a game of my own. So I steal her, and while she’s captive in my home, we strike a deal.

I’ll help her follow the money trail surrounding her kidnapping if she agrees to stay with me. But each clue unearths darker and more sinister threats.

I lost my first love. I won’t lose Hailey too.

I’ll do anything to save her, even if it means the impossible—letting her go.

Max’s endgame is clear—take back what’s rightfully his and punish those who have wronged him.

Under the guise of assassin Matteo Trambino, Max infiltrates a vital arm of the Chicago Mafia to protect his Sicilian mentor’s granddaughter, Liliana, from her dangerous father. What should be easy changes when they come face-to-face, and he realizes he can never walk away. 

Born into one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra, Liliana Brambilla is a pawn in her father’s bid for power, unable to leave until he sets her free. The only means of escape is trading one prison for another in the form of her father’s choice of husband. 

When her father assigns a new bodyguard, her trust is tentative. She thinks he’s her enemy. The truth is, Max is her savior.
