They expected me to bend. To wilt.

But this rose has thorns too.


I have no family. No life. No dreams.


I have nothing left.


My father and Nikolai made sure of that when they made me a pawn in their mafia games.


A broken woman. A tainted bride. A bargaining chip. That’s all I am to them.


But things are changing.


I am changing.


Learning. Growing. Rising from the ashes anew.


At first, I didn’t understand what Nikolai woke in me when he used my body for his revenge plot. But now? Now, I have plans of my own.


He may think I’m his Rose to claim, to dominate, control, but I am a rose steeped in war and born from bloodshed.


It’s about time I live up to my name.



This series is a dark age gap mafia romance. It contains situations and themes that some readers might find offensive and/or triggering.

Brooke Harper creates dark and sexy worlds for her characters to play. A lover of strong coffee and old tombstones, she spins dark tales of sex and sin, pain and passion, and misery and madness that’ll have you flipping the pages and begging for more.

Dark Contemporary pen name of Harper A. Brooks.
