The Ruined Trilogy: The Beginning
by Nichole Rose
Genre: Curvy Girl Mafia Romance
My brothers are mobsters. Criminals.
They rule their kingdoms with iron fists.
I’m nothing like them.
I’m an astrophysicist. A professor.
My lecture hall is full of laughter.
Until I set eyes on Norah Bishop.
She needs my help, but I need her.
And I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.
Even if it means returning to the family I left.
All I’ve ever wanted was to be a scientist like my dad.
But I stumbled into something I shouldn’t have.
Now, the biggest criminal in Chicago is coming for me.
And the only person who can help me is his brother…my new professor.
I don’t want to drag Nico into this.
But when he touches me, I lose all control.
He’s my professor. I think I want him to be my forever instead.
Loving him comes with a price.
But losing him will break me.
If you enjoy over-the-top nerdy men, curvy heroines willing to risk it all, and forbidden student-teacher romance, you’ll love Nico and Norah’s sugary-sweet and extra steamy story! As always, Nichole Rose books come complete with a guaranteed HEA. Physical Science is the steamy beginning to the Ruined Trilogy. It can be read as a standalone story.

The Ruined Trilogy Book 1
One look at his curvy captive and this Mafia boss will risk it all. Even if it means toppling his own kingdom to the ground…
A life in chains was the deal I made with my father to win my twin’s freedom.
My soul is black with the things I’ve done to keep my promise.
I never regretted any of it until now. Until her.
Amalia Santiago’s bravado and fierce defiance make me feel alive in a way I never expected.
I was never meant to fall for her.
I don’t deserve to put my filthy hands all over her pristine body.
She’s supposed to be my prisoner.
But now, she’ll become my world instead.
When the devil came for my foster brother, I let him take me in his place.
I swore I’d find a way out of this mess for both of us.
Except Rafe Valentino wasn’t supposed to have a heart…
And I wasn’t supposed to fall for the ruthless crime boss.
So why do I come alive when he touches me?
Now, I’m one wrong move from destroying everything.
And nothing is what it seems.
How do I sacrifice the man I love to save my brother?
If you enjoy OTT possessive older men with a little bit of darkness in them and sassy, curvy heroines with heart, get ready to fall for Rafe and Amalia in this sweet and extra steamy romance. As always, Nichole Rose books come complete with a guaranteed HEA. Safe read. No cliffhanger.

The Ruined Trilogy Book 2
Falling for the enemy wasn’t part of Luca Valentino’s plan. But one taste of his curvy captive will change everything for this mafia boss.
A life in hell was the sacrifice I made to keep my brothers alive.
There’s nothing I won’t do to see that job through.
Even if it means seducing the enemy.
But I never intended to fall for Callandria Genovese.
She was supposed to be a means to an end, nothing more.
Now, I’ve got more to lose than ever.
And the woman who holds the key to my future is in chains in my bedroom.
I need her trust. I want her heart.
One way or another, I will have both.
I’ve been taught to hate the Valentino family since I could walk.
I know they killed my grandfather.
But no one warned me that the real monster of the bunch was Luca Valentino.
They didn’t tell me I’d find myself imprisoned in his bed, either.
Or that I’d be so reluctant to leave it.
But that’s precisely what happened.
Little by little, he’s slipping beneath my defenses and making me feel things I shouldn’t.
But which side of him is real?
The wanton man who sets me ablaze…or the ruthless mobster who refuses to let me go?
If you like your OTT possessive older men morally gray and your curvy heroines strong, prepare to fall for Luca and Callandria in this steamy mafia romance. As always, Nichole Rose books come complete with a guaranteed HEA. Safe read. No cliffhanger. Each book in the Ruined Trilogy features a different Valentino brother and can be read as a standalone story.
The Ruined Trilogy Book 3
To win her love, this crime boss will need more than money and power.
They say those with the power make the rules.
Genesis Santiago refuses to bend to my will.
I know because I’ve tried.
She wants nothing to do with me.
That isn’t going to work for me.
She’s the only thing in this world I need.
One way or another, I’ll make her mine.
Even if I have to break her to claim her.
I know what people say about Gabriel Valentino.
He’s not just a billionaire. He’s a criminal.
When he catches me trying to steal from him, I expect a quick death.
Instead, the bossy, arrogant man hires me.
But I won’t bow to any man…
Not even the one who owns my soul.
Not even to save my own life.
When this wicked mob boss finds his curvy girl, he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his. If you enjoy over-the-top billionaires, willful heroines, and steamy romance with a touch of darkness, you’ll love Gabriel and Genesis. As always, Nichole Rose books come complete with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. Each book in the Ruined Trilogy features a different Valentino brother and can be read as a standalone novel.
