LaFamiglia_453x680“Never question my heart, my courage, my loyalty! To my men and to this family I am all things. But to my wife I am only one. Husband.” – Don Giovanni Battaglia.

The year is 1992. The Battaglia family awaits the birth of the newest members to their clan. Twin boys will be born to the capo di tutti capi of the Neapolitan clans. By an African American woman who has married the most powerful and feared Mafia boss in all of southern Italy.

Before the birth Don Giovanni Battaglia makes a decision that shocks the family. He will move his wife out of the Campania to his homeland of Sicilia. Against the advisement of his consigliere and uncle, the family relocates to the beautiful seaside beach town of Mondello. And unbeknownst to the Don the lies and secrets he keeps from his wife are already unraveling as well as his empire. His cousin Lorenzo Battaglia who has suffered a humiliating banishment plots secretly to return. The men of the Camorra, organize against him to take control of a region they feel he has left open to his enemies. And the most powerful Don in Sicily, Marsuvio Mancini, is determined to expose his famiglia tie to Mirabella Battaglia. It is an old Mancini family secret that will bring forth cataclysmic consequences.

And while Giovanni and Mirabella fight to hold onto their marriage, the family bonds that keep them strong begin to crumble. Will the Don realize the true meaning of preserving honesty, love, and faith in his marriage in time? Will Donna Mirabella find the strength to forgive her husband of his lies to keep the family safe from his wrath? And what will become of the others who are caught up in their cyclone of drama?

    I just purchased and downloaded La Famiglia from as an epub to my playbook. I keep getting “error opening book. Your book might be DRM-Protected”. I had no problem with the other 3 that I purchased through the same site months ago. Have there been problems opening on Playbook or is this a singular incident?

    I just have three things to say to you.

    1) It’s about time. You and Theodora Taylor are killing me with the waits. You saved her tail with the release of this book. (I told her that and she thanks you) and she saved yours with the release of Wolf and Soul. However, I have now finished both of you ladies’ books and have nothing else to do :(. (Back to surfing for a good IR read).

    2) This MUST be made into a MOVIE. I swear you wrote this so well that I saw the movie play while I was reading. (My husband can attest to that with all the noises I was making while reading it). When you mentioned yourself as the author of the book that Mira was reading. I completely forgot that you wrote THIS book. I felt like a nut when I said outloud “I know her….Homegirl moving up in the world, they mentioned her specifically”. Then I remembered that YOU wrote this book. For some reason, Battaglia has a life of its own.

    3) Pleeease, whatever you do, do not let Gio loose his power like Vinny did in Harmony. I loved Harmony, I just wish that Vinny didn’t have to loose so much, but I get it. Vinny’s loss somehow made Harmony seem like an actual occurrence in history. You put so much historical information into that story that Harmony could have actually happened and Vinny’s loss of power could explain why we never heard of him until your story. Now Gio however, lives in a world created solely by you so the Don must never fall….at least not permanently.

    Finally, I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you so much for giving us something that makes the world a little brighter. You have a product here that should trump any Twilight or 50 shades of Grey when it comes to quality and fan frenzy. You GO Madam Mynx.

    ***As you can see, short stories are not your forte and short comments are not mine….. I also can’t seem to count… I think I passed three things two comments ago. :0).

    I’ve been waiting for the 4th book in the Battaglia Mafia series with baited breath. Bought it today and will begin reading it once I finish bad habits (another great book by the talented Sienna Mynx).
