Release Date: December 13, 2015
Roan Diamond’s loyalty to the family may be obligated by blood, but nobody ever said he had to love them all, right?
As the next in line to head the Diamond dynasty, he has loose ends to take care of, and one of those is his brother Royal. Yet his plans for revenge fall apart the minute he lays eyes on Alina—Royal’s ex-girlfriend, who also happens to be the daughter of the rival Solokov family.
As a mafia princess, Alina Solokov knew it wouldn’t be easy when she made the decision ten years ago to leave the family for a new life at a college in England—but betrayal is often a dish served cold by those who you love the most. Now, back in the United States after a job offer that she couldn’t refuse, her new found strength is pushed to the limits when Royal returns to claim her for his own.
When the man who captures her heart amongst the chaos is front and center in a lifestyle she swore never to return to, can she hold her ground and fight being sucked back into the black hole that is the mafia underworld? Or will Roan’s love be worth the ultimate sacrifice?

The Redemption of Roan (The Syndicate Series, Book 2) is where we fall head over heels in love with Roan Diamond, Calla’s cousin from The Wrath of Cain. Roan is hot for Alina Solokov, the daughter of the Solokov Family and his brother, Royal’s former girlfriend.
I love mafia books, especially well written ones. Kathy Coopmans has done a spectacular job of weaving a world of intrigue, mystery, hot men, danger and sex to keep me on my toes and interested. The dark and dangerous underworld of The Syndicate is exactly that—dark and dangerous. On the surface things don’t appear to be much out of the ordinary. But, the more you dig, the more you find—unless it comes to Royal Diamond, the brother of Roan Diamond. He’s scary, in the most awful of ways. He’s a torturer and a killer. And not of just those who deserve it, any and all who step in his path. He’s an enigma, a ghost who comes and goes as he wants but is never to be found.
Roan is just HOT. Can I say that again, F’ING HOT! I went there, I’d climb him like a tree! Alina is a sprite in my book, tiny and powerful in her own right. She has brothers who take care of her, but really, she’s determined to take care of herself. Falling in love with Roan is the last thing she wants to do. But in the land of romance, love may not come easily and without a bit of death and dying, but it comes! And when it does, oh how sweet it is! Wait, it’s oh, how SEXY it is. Yes, that’s it! White Hot Sex. Blow up your skirt or drop your panties amazeballs!
Should you read it? Absolutely!
