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?

 
I think Kathy Coopmans knows what she is doing in this literary world. The way that the words flow throughout the chapters is like smooth, velvety chocolate running down a heavenly wonderfall. If that doesn't make you want to slap your mama and one-click with that cute little twitchy finger of yours, then I have no idea what will!

Royal Diamond is a killer. He is relentless and he won't rest until he has Alina in his grasp. She won't escape him again ... at least not alive and breathing. It doesn't matter who tries to get in his way, for if they do, they are going down - no matter who it is. Everybody that Alina knows and loves will pay the ultimate price for what he deems as betrayal on her behalf.

Alina has been running for 10 years. She is always looking over her shoulder, in fear that Royal will find her. She has a bodyguard, but Royal is good. He is a vindictive son of a bitch that will stop at nothing to get what he wants. He wants Alina. She has not been with a man since that fateful night that he hurt her. Men cannot be trusted .. she will not let her guard down. She will live her life alone without a man, they're all heartbreakers anyway.

Roan watches over Alina. He needs her to help him find his SOB of a brother, Royal. After what Royal did to him and his cousin Calla, Roan wants him dead. He sees her in a nightclub and has every intention of her coming over to his side. Roan wants her in more ways that one. He craves her, he dreams of her, he needs her. One date - one date is all he needs to prove that he is the one for her. This is all so new for Roan, as he is the "love em' and leave em'," kind.

He gets what he wished for ... he gets the chance to make her, his and he will go to the ends of the earth to protect her from this Italian mafia life. Even though their families are at odds, that can't and won't stop his heart from feeling what it feels. Now that they are together, they are a force to be reckoned with. Will they find Royal and make him pay for what he has done to not only Alina, but both families as well? Will Alina get scared off and run from this lifestyle that she swore she would not live?

This is one hell of a book!! I am in love with Roan. Oh my God .. he is strong, rough, rugged, gorgeous and oh so powerful. I thought that The Wrath of Cain was amazing .. I promise that the series just keeps getting better! The Wrath of Cain turned me onto Kathy Coopmans and I am SO glad that it did. I am head over heels in love with her at the moment. Make sure to hover above that Amazon buy link and click it. I guarantee that you will finish this book in just a matter of hours. It had me not wanting to go to work, eat or even function. I wanted to continue to read and not let up. I laughed, I cried, I yelled, I mourned. Get ready for one hell of a ride with The Redemption of Roan, but beware ... you will be hooked!

 
 



 
 

“Dance with me?”
 
 Her eyes glimmer. The most captivating smile spreads across her face. Taking her beer out of her hand, I set it down on the table next to me. I gently pull her into my arms. Her body presses firmly to mine. Her hands twine around my neck. God, she feels so good. It’s as if she was made to be here in my arms. We sway slowly. Clapton’s deep velvety voice is speaking the truth. She does look wonderful.
“You surprise me at every turn, Mr. Diamond.” Her breath is so close to my ear. I’ve never danced with a woman before. I have no clue what the hell I’m even doing. All I know is she spears my thoughts. I can’t stop thinking about her. I could easily become addicted to this euphoria as much as I’m already addicted to her well-being. I’m in way over my damned head. I know so much about her, yet I feel like there is so much more to learn. I’m turning into one of those fuck-puppets. She has me dangling on a damn string and doesn’t even fucking know it. Alina has the upper hand here without knowing much about me. I chastise myself mentally to move slowly, to learn about her more intimately. Not in a sexual way. She needs to know she can trust me. I wonder what’s going through her mind right now. My mind is screaming at me to find out things about her I don’t know, while my dick is trying to fight its way out of my pants. Yeah, well forget it, buddy. She will definitely be worth the wait.
“That’s the plan.” My voice is gruff.
 She squeals slightly when I dip her back, her long naked neck exposed. It’s my tongue this time that wants to reach out and run up her graceful neck. Lick her lazily, seductively. I rein him in. Keep my mouth shut. I bring her back up, spinning her slowly then bringing her back into me. I need to tie my dick up with my tongue, this way they’ll both shut the hell up.
“Are you a romantic?”
 Our mouths are not even an inch apart.
 “I’ve never had anyone to romance before.”
 I’m speaking the truth. My hand instinctively reaches up and caresses her cheek.
“You are astoundingly beautiful in every way a woman should be.”
The music keeps playing. It switched to a different song. I’m so caught up in her I couldn’t tell you the name of the song if my life depended on it. It’s slow and sensual, exactly the same way we are swaying back and forth. There’s no lead and follow between us. We’re two people attracted to each other.
 We’ve stopped moving. My hand is still stroking her cheek. Her eyes dart to my lips. My plan was to go slow with her. To not even kiss hertonight before I took her home. To let her know I respect her in every way.  But I can’t seem to help myself. My face leans in slowly, knowing I only get one first kiss with this woman. I could devour her with my mouth, clue her in and let her know specifically what she does to me. Instead, when my lips brush across her soft lips, a spark ignites in me. I’ve often wondered if the truth stands behind what happens when two electric currents collide. I feel it. The heat is slowly building up, then vaporizing in an extremely hot explosion.
 Darting my tongue out, I slowly glide it across her bottom lip. She exhales, opening wider, clinging her mouth to mine. My plan was to control this kiss, but she takes complete control, which shocks the shit out of me. I’ll let her for now. She shows no sign at all of her sweet innocence, her lack of experience. Those tantalizing plump lips feel better than I ever thought they would. She’s kissing me like she’s never been kissed before. Bringing my other hand up to hold her in place, I tilt her head to the perfect angle. Her tongue darts out first, slowly meshing with mine. I lose all control then, devouring her mouth with mine. Our tongues play war with one another, each one trying to demolish the other. Fuck me all the way back to Michigan. I am so totally screwed. Totally fucked.
