Feral Oath: Syndicate Masters: La Cosa Nostra #2

She has become prey for the powerful head of a syndicate, and he means to make her his own.

Raffi

Betrayal and heartache have been my friends for far too long. I did what was needed to find my sisters and rebuild our family. I will not let one night of blazing passion get in the way of fulfilling the oath I made to find who murdered our parents.

He may have secrets, but I have secrets of my own.

Nico
She thinks she can say no to me and get away with it. She thinks she can walk away after an intense night of passion. One taste and my beast knew she was ours. I don’t care what it takes.

A jaguar always captures its prey.

Meet the men and women of La Cosa Nostra. Their motto is family honor above all. They vow to protect their clans and live by an oath of honor and loyalty. The men are gorgeous, dangerous beasts seeking their fated mates. The women they love are bold and brilliant. Their love blazes bright and hot.

The second book in this series La Cosa Nostra is steamy and full of action. I’ve been on the lookout for the ARC to be available via Booksprout and when I saw it I jumped at the opportunity.

Raffi/Rafaella and Nico are paired for an invitation only event at Dante’s. Nico recognizes her as his fated mate and is determined to break all the rules to find out who his anonymous sub is and where to find her when she disappears from his bed.

Raffi is on a mission - well really 2 missions - get justice for herself and her sisters from the people who murdered her parents and the woman who profited from putting them is horrible circumstances within the foster system; and stay out of Nico Falconeri’s grasp and bed! She recognizes he is the perfect man/Dom for her, but she doesn’t think she has time for live right now.

Raffi takes Nico for a wild adventure as she hides from him and his efforts to uncover who she is and where to find her. I love how close he is to finding her the entire time, but he doesn’t put all the clues together.

I loved how she captained the rescue effort for bringing Nico home and how easily she took control over the clan, caused absolute havoc for the men, and won everyone’s affection and love. I am disappointed this time period (approximately a week) is only described as having happened versus actually having it happen on the page. The storyline jumps from the dangerous situation after leaving Milan, to Nico’s e rescue. It sounds like what happened during the week Raffi was in control was an absolutely amazing adventure!.

“…in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea…” Plato, 360 B.C.
James, Delta. Feral Oath: A Dark Paranormal Mafia Romance (p. 6). Kindle Edition.

"What the old philosopher hadn’t known, what had never been recorded by man, was that having foreseen what was to come, their patron god Poseidon had sealed their fate. The Atlanteans sent forth three of their bravest and wisest warriors, but they did not send them in the guise of man; instead, their master sorcerer granted them the ability to shift between man and beast. And so, the lion, the tiger, and the jaguar were sent to keep alive the story of Atlantis and to see that their seed never perished from the Earth.
Once safely delivered to the mainland and hidden from the sight of the Greek Gods, the three creatures spread across the land, seeking a new homeland and a new people. The tiger settled in Genoa, the jaguar in Sicily, and the lion in Sardinia."
James, Delta. Feral Oath: A Dark Paranormal Mafia Romance (p. 6-7). Kindle Edition.

'Feral Oath' is the second book in Delta James' "Syndicate Masters: La Cosa Nostra" series and it's riveting. The story opens up with an event at Dante's BDSM club for a celebration to be attended by invitation only. As a matter of fact, it's a masked event where each Dom has been assigned a sub who has either already played with that Dom or specifically requested to play with him. That's when we meet Nico Falconeri, aka the Predator of Palermo, who is the Jaguar shifter from Sicily. Not only that but his sub for the evening is none other than Rafaella, aka Raffi, Amato, aka La Pantera. Sparks fly, chemistry sizzles, and the scenes are hot as blue blazes but Raffi has made a solemn vow to follow the trail of who killed their parents, had the three sisters separated, thrown into three different foster homes, and sold their family home and possessions. She knows there's some kind of connection between her and Nico but she has convinced herself she doesn't have time for a relationship of any kind until her vow is fulfilled. Nico, on the other hand, knows she is his fated mate and doesn't intend to let her go but after falling asleep with the intention of claiming her the next morning, he wakes to an empty bed. The hunt is on and he intends to find her. There are a lot of twists and turns in this one with some secrets being revealed. Both of these characters are strong, alpha personalities in their own right … combined they're almost magical. This is a great read and now I can't wait for 'Defiant Vow' to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE PREDATOR OF PALERMO AND LA PANTERA
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 8, 2022
The story is another spin-off in the Syndicate Masters series and will take place in and around Italy. The story will have a special event at Dante’s where Nico Falconeri was one of the invited single Doms, and they are paired up with single submissives. The event was masked and confidential, which meant there was no way for either sub or Dom to be sure with whom they were playing.

“The club had gone to great extent to ensure that the sub was willing to meet the needs of the Dom to whom she’d been assigned.”

“Sir, I have the submissive assigned to you. If she is acceptable, take her hand, and I will leave her to your care.”

“How could a creature this magnificent not be acceptable? A Dom who would not give everything to spend the evening with her is not a Dom worthy of her.”

Rafaella Amato is one of the subs attending the event and is paired with Nico Falconeri—even though neither knows who they are with. From a public exhibition to a private room, the night meets both of their needs. Rafaella will leave before Nico wakes, and he is unhappy. He knew from the moment they met that she was his fated mate. Marco isn’t budging, threats are working, and even hiring someone off the black web isn’t working. How will he find her again?

“There will come a time, Rafaella Amanto, that the right Dom will come along to take you in hand. When that time comes, I will gift him with a handmade strap he can apply to your backside.”—Genovese

The story has mystery, suspense, secrets, danger, life and death, and romance. The chemistry between Nico and Rafaella is immediate, and full of erotic passion. Now that Nico has had a taste of her, of his true fated mate, nothing will stop him until he finds her. I love the game of cat and mouse played, but in the end, the jaguar will capture, conquer and claim his mate.

“I have you now, my sweet mate.” “The tide had turned, and time and patience were now on his side.”

Nico: You have been a most precocious pet. Take my hand.
Raffi: You can’t order me around. You can’t do this to me.
Nico: I rather think I can. You will learn, my mate, that it’s better to accept my discipline than to fight it. I am your lord and master, and you will obey me or face the consequences of your actions.

“Rafaella needed to submit to him in the same way he needed to dominate her—completely and fully.”

“You are mine. You will be one with me.”

The story is a great addition to this series, and while it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, the epilogue is a setup for the next book, coming on October 6, 2022. The story does have scenes of dubious consent, dominance, submission, exhibition, and power exchange.
