Alliance (Syndicate Masters: Northern Lights Book 1)

Alliances are made. Complications are kept. Judgments are demanded.
From USA Today Bestselling Author Delta James, a stunning book in the Syndicate Masters, Northern Lights romance series.

I am a pawn in a dangerous game. One he will take by any means.

Years ago an alliance was made between the Tiamat Syndicate and the Northern Lights Coalition. I was promised to Gunnar, the head of the Blood Eagle Syndicate. Our families believed an alliance was the only way to prevent all-out war.

With my father dead, my brother Joshua refuses to force me into Gunnarโ€™s bed until he needs to forge an alliance with Gunnar against a common enemy-the Bratva.

I am a pawn to both sides. So I ran. I ran as far as I could to get away from him. I should have known better… Lions love to hunt.

Once he catches me he expects me to play by his rules. He thinks he can bend me to his will. It would be so much easier to fight him if we werenโ€™t fated mates.

When the Bratva attack, can I use the war to escape him, or will I join him in the battle?

'Alliance' is the first book in Delta James' "Syndicate Masters: Northern Lights" series. It picks up right where book four, "The Understanding" in her "Syndicate Masters" series left off. So if you thought the original series was exciting and wanted to know what happened after the bonding ceremony, then be prepared because the underlying plot that carries through brings excitement and anticipation that does not disappoint! The joining of Gunner and Marley sealed the alliance between the Tiamat Syndicate and the Blood Eagle Syndicate. Made by both fathers when the Tiamat Syndicate needed physical and financial aid, Joshua, the eldest son and now leader has given Marley a reprieve by not enforcing it since both fathers have passed. But when the Tiamat Syndicate needs that alliance again in order to stand against an attack by the Bratva, Joshua has no alternative but to honor the original alliance and hand Marley over to Gunner. Marley, on the other hand, has been coddled, spoiled, and let them have her freedom and independence. As a matter of fact, she's a world-renowned deep-sea diver. She has no intention of being subservient to any man even if Gunner thinks they are fated, mates. It was fascinating to watch both characters grow into their own as an epiphany after epiphany came to mind. But regardless of how much their minds argue and fight there's no denying the chemistry of a fated mate and it's evident within these pages. And when Marley finally receives a new nickname from Gunnar it absolutely melts my heart.

Alliance is an amazing book!! It grabs your interest from the beginning and doesn't let go!!! Several times I found myself holding breath wondering OMG what had she gotten into!! Marley is smart stubborn and definitely doesn't want to be where she is!! Ms. James manages to get her characters in and out of trouble all the while you are frantically turning pages to see how!! Buy this one y'all. It is so worth it!!

Please don't underestimate the above reader's caption ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿ’ฏ.

Please RESPECT that the Author DELTA JAMES is BACKING UP HER pre-warnings to the FULLEST. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

There's NO "skirting around" the content of this book. It is IN FACT a Dark Mafia PNR ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ

This is a "REAL, GROWN PNR,๐Ÿ‘‰PEOPLE" ๐Ÿ’ฏ

It is also a reader's "GROWN PERSON INDIVIDUAL CHOICE" to or not to read. Judgement FREE ๐Ÿ’ฏ.

The actual story ( as it pertains to the story๐Ÿ‘ˆ,
was ( wisely handled by the Author) , in her layering & creating a storyline, characters, background developments, a concise history behind the Alpha Male; as well as his More Than Equal to him, "fated partner". ๐Ÿ’ฏ

The Mafioso Alpha Persona and Energy, the definite push & pull, plots, the unforseen ๐Ÿ˜ฏ, the betrayals, the loyalties, the action & the ending ??
ALL THERE & ON DECK๐Ÿ’ฏ.

The Author also layered in some sensuality ( another wise choice ).
๐Ÿ‘‰Some๐Ÿ‘ˆ. NOT enough to "touch nor change" ANY pre-warnings.

It skimmed off a "few" edges of it, IMHO.

Delta James PNR DARK GENRE is very INTENSE.

Obey/ Anyway ๐Ÿ‘ˆ, is exactly what this reading genre is, teeth bared.

Hence, the pre-warnings ๐Ÿ‘ˆ. Appreciate the Author for that.....
