This is August, New York, where the chaotic world of the supernatural will collide with unsuspecting, vulnerable humans.


Notorious criminal Mickey McKennan is everything Nora Evers shouldn’t want. He’s power and sex in a suit with a rogue smile, and when they meet, her world tilts as she falls in lust—until that world halts when tragedy strikes. Nora’s life quickly goes from bad to worse, and she finds Mickey at every turn. Although his deadly secrets ensure that trouble follows him, she is drawn to him more and more. But, when her past haunts her present, Nora’s life is threatened, and she is unsure of who she can count on to help her survive.


Everyone has a price, and thanks to the captivating Simon Handover and his proposition, Penny Ames has discovered hers. She will just need to make it through one month with him before she can flee and never look back. But, with his Clark Kent good looks and Superman swagger, Simon is more of a threat to Penny than she realizes. While fighting not to lose her heart, she stumbles into a world filled with guns, gangs, and…vampires, and soon, she finds herself also fighting for her life.


When Sosie Savage is taken hostage by the Vampire Mafia due to her father’s mistake, the only thing on her mind is survival—until her focus begins to shift as her captors, the D’Avignon brothers, vie for her attention. Powerful yet antagonistic, J.M. and Sebastien fascinate her. Where J.M. is destructive and dangerous, Sebastien acts as the savior with his kindness. With her feelings clouding her mind, Sosie struggles to set things right in the tangled web her father weaved. But, after the D’Avignon family receives threats from rival vampires while enduring run-ins with the authorities, she begins to question her allegiance to her own family and the life that she once knew.


Kidnapped and tortured with no end in sight, Beau D’Avignon is certain death is imminent. That is, until Francesca Slight intervenes. Sheltered daughter of the D’Avignon’s sworn enemy, she is now also the owner of Beau’s heart. With the animosity between the leading vampire families, their newfound love is not likely to survive, especially when the escalating war threatens all their lives.

Frustrated with her father’s lack of action in the search for her missing family, Bellamy D’Avignon is determined to take the reins, but along the way, she crosses paths with someone from the opposite side of the law. He’s literally tall, dark, and handsome, and their connection is immediate and undeniable. But, when a life-altering threat hits and emotions take over, Bellamy makes a decision that will change their lives forever.

The Vampire Mafia (The Complete Series)Book One – TROUBLE

Mickey McKennan makes no bones about being a heartless criminal kingpin. But he does hide a very deadly secret that amplifies both his charisma and his power. He is a man one NEVER wants to cross. Nora Evers is prim, always willing to earn her own way and far from a shrinking violet. When she accidentally bumps into Mickey, little did she know her world was about to go from fairly normal to dark, passionate and very dangerous. Mickey is overbearing, a sexual predator and like no one Nora has ever known or was willing to tolerate, but somehow she cannot resist going against every principle she has ever had in the arms of this larger-than-life man. When her past comes slithering out of the shadows, Mickey may be her only option for safety, but what she learns about him is something nightmares are made of. Will it matter when he offers her love that truly lasts for eternity?

M.A. Wilder has opened this series with a bang! An overbearing alpha who oozes sexual predator pheromones, a beautiful human who has honor, morals and an inner strength that is completely praise-worthy. To say their passion ignites would be like saying that a match lit at a gas station could cause a small fire. Meet Mickey’s world, discover his secret and be amazed at how long it takes for the big reveal! Dark, gritty, romance with a bite.


Was Penny tricked into accepting a temporary proposal from Simon Handover? Simon had just taken over his father’s business and rumors were rampant, would he follow in his father’s footsteps and mix business with carnal pleasure at the office? Penny was supposed to be his subordinate, not his plaything, when she is offered a deal she couldn’t’ refuse, she finds herself at his beck and call for one month, a month that should end with all of her problems gone and enough money to do whatever she wants. Who knew that not only would Simon control her life, but he would rapidly control her heart? Little did she know that life would soon include a vampire mafia, fangs, gangs and possible death.

Well, turn on the AC because Simon is smoking hot and Penny is finding she needs a fire-proof suit to keep from getting singed. Is it possible that the one man who makes her heart beat triple time could really be involved in the world of a mafia that shouldn’t even exist?


Her dad was an addict, drugs, gambling, alcohol were his weaknesses, too bad he didn’t have a soft spot in his heart for his daughter, Sosie. After being emotionally absent in her life, he is back and in big trouble, he needs money, lots of money or the mafia will be fitting him for a cement overcoat or worse. Desperate for her father’s love, hoping that this time there will be a family bond between them, she naively asks for an extension and finds herself a captive, instead. Her life is now in the hands of monsters and only her weak father can save her, but will he? Sosie finds herself trapped in a world of vampires, including two brothers as different as night and day who each want a piece of her heart and soul. Unsure of her feelings, she must decide who will truly stand as her protector in a world filled with powerful creatures whose favorite drink is blood. Will the volatile and terrifying J.M. be trustworthy? He acts as if he hates her, but seems to show up at just the right time. Then there is Sebastien, a man of faith and kindness with a gentle touch. Both powerful vampires, both part of the D’Avignon family, both preparing for war in their own way. If Sosie lives, will her heart reveal the one meant for her? Can she put up with a deadly and antagonistic mother-in-law? What will she learn about her father? Will he save her or see her as collateral damage for his freedom?

Book Four – VENGEFUL

He knew he would be facing his final death at the hands of the Slight family and Beau D’Avignon never expected an angel of mercy to rescue him from his family’s sworn enemies. But she came and his heart would be hers for eternity. It could be a wonderful fairytale romance, if she weren’t the Slight family princess, Francesca. Is it a trick? Why would she save her enemy? More dangerous than the love between Romeo and Juliet, Beau and Francesca must face the wrath of both families as the war between the vampire mafia clans heats up to a raging inferno of bloodshed.

I have to say, this may have been the sweetest couple in the series, which is not say that body parts won’t fly or that the torture won’t be gag worthy.

Meanwhile, family members are missing or dead and Bellamy is tired of doing nothing. As she prepares to override every human law in existence, one man comes into her life that stops her in her tracks. Of course, Fate must play games at the worst of times, and this love may be doomed from the start. Bellamy must decide to choose between family and love and that choice could alter the future for vampires and humans alike. Once again, the heat index soars as M. A. Wilder fuels the flames of love.

You think living among the Mafia is dangerous, clannish or that a war between the most powerful families results in horse heads in beds, black and white movies, machine guns and wise guys? Clearly you haven’t heard of the Vampire Mafia where the war between two controlling families in August, New York makes the human Mafia look like a game of Candyland. Prepare yourself for more violence, family loyalties and bloodshed as M.A. Wilder gives us a supernatural bonanza in THE VAMPIRE MAFIA-THE COMPLETE SERIES. Yes, you read that right, an enter series under one cover! So get ready to bathe yourself in violence, blood, eternal death and more darkness than a total eclipse at night.

I received this series from M.A. Wilder in exchange for my honest review.
