Deceived
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 1
by Sarah Bailey
Genre: Dark Mafia Reverse Harem Romance
Four of them. One of me. Who will give in first?
It started when they stole me from my life. The daughter of a crime lord who ruled with an iron fist. The heir to a family of blood and ruin.
They left only a whisper of a name in the air. Il Diavolo. A man whose reputation preceded him. Ruthless. Merciless. Cunning.
The one they called the Devil. He was as beautiful as he was terrifying. Except I wasn’t scared of him or his three friends. They might want to use me in their quest for revenge, but they picked the wrong girl. Or maybe I was the right one and none of us knew it quite yet.
Our connection is undeniable. Our fates are entwined. But loyalty and lies keep us all locked in a battle of wills and denial.
There’s only one thing I know for certain in this fight between the five of us. Secrets always catch up with you in the end. And my secrets were the worst ones of all.
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.
Get ready to meet Ash and her boys – Quinn, Xavier, Eric and Rory.

I scanned the room again until my eyes fell on a group of men in the corner. Normally I wouldn’t give a shit who Papa had invited to these things. This group I hadn’t seen before. Four of them. All equally striking in their own right. One had dirty blonde hair with a scar running across his right eyebrow. Another had chestnut hair with dark eyes the colour of an evergreen forest. The third slouched against a bookcase with a whisky tumbler in his hand, his auburn hair glinting under the lights and his blue eyes piercing. It was the last man who caught my attention. He had dark hair and eyes as black as night. He looked like he’d walked right out of hell, wearing all black with a single red handkerchief in his suit pocket. The look in those dark eyes as he scanned the room with a sneer on his face sent a chill down my spine.

If I was the superstitious type, I’d say these men were a bad omen. Something about them made me want to shrink into the background so they couldn’t see me. Especially the dark-haired one. He could gut a woman with a single glance. I decided then and there, I never wanted to make their acquaintance.

“Who are they?”

“I advise you not to ask that question, Ashleigh.”

I turned to her, my eyes wide.

“Why not?”

“Forget you saw them. They’re not men you want to know.”

My mother’s eyes were narrowed. She gripped her glass of champagne tighter. Her reaction only confirmed my suspicions. They were not good men. Why were they at my father’s party? How had they gained entry?

“Mother…”

“Don’t. Stay far away from them. Promise me you won’t go looking for trouble.”

As if. I knew what type of men graced this world. Growing up with hardened criminals changes a person’s perception. You’d think Papa might have shielded his own daughter from the horrific nature of his business. No such luck there.

“I won’t.”

She eyed me for a moment longer before nodding and sauntering off towards the games room where my father was gambling. I decided I’d seen enough. Papa expected me to make an appearance tonight, and that was it. I’d done his bidding, now it was my time to escape.

Glancing around one last time, my eyes lingered on the man from hell. His eyes were fixed on the open doors of the gaming room where my father could be seen laughing. The rage and hatred in his eyes were unmistakable. Whatever problem he had with Papa, it was no concern of mine.

I slipped from the room into the hallway and walked towards the stairs. That’s the last thing I remember of that night. My foot landing on the first stair before a hand slammed over my mouth and the sharp sting of a needle slicing through my flesh. I never got a chance to scream. Darkness overtook me, dragging me down as my body slumped against a solid chest and all my senses faded to black.

Derailed
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 3
Three mixed with four. The captive became an ally. Who will break first?
It started when they betrayed me. The ones who I’d come to trust. The ones I was starting to love.
My world flipped upside down and nothing is as it seems. Everything was unravelling before my eyes, tearing us apart whilst pulling us closer together.
I’m caught between two worlds. The one I grew up in and the one I’d started to forge with the boys. Everything came to a grinding halt when long hidden secrets came to light. The truth changed the rules and made us realise nothing in life is ever as it seems.
Sometimes the only way out of a situation is through. Never before had been truer when it came to the five of us and our future together.
Did we have a future? Or was everything too much for us to handle? The pieces were starting to fit together, but there’s always something holding us back. My family. My loyalty. My duty. And whether to throw it away or stand and fight by their sides.

Debauched
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 4
Four seek their fifth. The hunter devours his prey. Who will lose first?
It started with an impossible choice. One I had no wish to make from a person who’d only just come to know.
So many of our decisions had led up to this moment. Perhaps it was the way we’d come together which threw my life so off balance. Leaving me with the final say in a matter I wanted no part of.
We had to draw up the battle lines. Change our fates. Or we’d all crash and burn. It wasn’t a case of if we’d fight for survival, it was when. When would he come after us? When would he try to destroy us? When would he decide I wasn’t worth saving any longer?
The inevitable hung over us like a dark cloud. A time bomb waiting to go off. No matter how many times we tried to stay ahead, we were always one step behind. And it was perfectly clear, we had to be prepared to go to war or we might end up with nothing at all.

Depraved
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 5
Together. Apart. Where does it end?
It started with the war. The war we’d wage upon the very man who’d raised me. The war which would either tear us apart or keep us together.
We’d finally found our way to each other. The five of us gave in. It’d been inevitable from the start. Desire had forged us, but it was love which set us free. Made us into what we were. A family drenched in blood.
Everything had built up to this moment. Our final fight for survival. Our final battle against corruption. Quinn, Xavier, Eric and Rory were the ones I had to protect at all costs. Even if it meant I sacrificed parts of myself in the process.
We had so much to live for. So much to lose. Would we really win this? Would we come out the other side? Would we still be whole? And the very last question I had… Is the love we share really enough for all of us in the end?
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.
