This is the second book in the “Medici Protectorate” Series. It continues the story of the brothers whose job it is to protect the bloodline of the Medici family or the Notaro sisters. The focus in “Mind Control” is on Vinnie and Jo and the secrets they both have. Drawn to each other they let their fears get in the way, which only adds to their attraction. Their past keeps them from trusting and in Jo’s case makes her want to run away. I found myself rooting for them to get past themselves. With ...more

Ok, I'm jumping from an addiction to another. It seems I'm so lucky in choosing books to read that I have a never-ending supply of compelling and gripping readings.

In truth, usually it's difficult to find a reading so absorbing, with such a perfect pace, and the right mix of external and internal conflict as Mind Control.

After reading Bleeding Heart, somehow I knew what to expect from the Medici Protectorate series, but this novel was a surprise nonetheless, and I enjoyed it even more than the

I loved this book that continues the story of the Notaro sisters, descendants of Italian royalty, and the Brotherhood of the Medici Protectorate, who are sworn to protect them. This time the focus in on Vinnie and Jo, a couple with complex backgrounds and old wounds that return to haunt them. They both have major obstacles to overcome—not only in their growing attraction, and the fact that killers are after Jo and her sisters, but there are psychological hurdles each has to face in order to move ...more

This book continued the Notaro sisters’ story. And it didn’t disappoint. Ms. Troilo creates believable characters, well developed scenes, and delivers on the action. There are steamy love scenes, and several thriller scenes with elements of magic. As the series progresses, we learn more about each sister, and the brothers who protect them. Although you could read this book before reading Bleeding Heart, I recommend you start with book one. There are too many details that would be missed if you d ...more

The second book of the Medici Protectorate series, and just as enjoyable as the first! Another adventure with the Brotherhood and the sisters descended from the Medici dynasty brings another of the guardians closer to his ward, each with their own wounds to heal. This book gives us a deeper look into Vinnie and Jo, and their troubled pasts. Loved the action, loved the skill with which the author builds the relationship between the two. This book also brings the story another step closer to findi ...more

This second book in the Medici Protectorate series continues the story from Bleeding Heart, only now we move on to Jo and Vinnie's adventures. It doesn't work as a standalone because book one holds too much key information for the reader to miss. However, both books are nicely rounded off at the end with no loose threads while remaining open enough to lead into the next story. I love the mix of steamy (sexy scenes) and thriller. The characters are well developed, enough for Jo to annoy the hell ...more

Rollercoaster of Emotions with this Book

Coming off of reading Bleeding Heart, I was very excited to read this book.
Despite the extreme emotions I had reading Jo & Vinnie's story (which trust me, everyone one who reads this book will have) I was quite surprised with the juicey secrets that come unraveled.

Not to mention the steamy scenes where Jo finds out what it means to be loved right. -fans self-

A truly amazing read.
Warning though, anyone who reads this will need a glass of wine, stress bal

I grew up knowing family is paramount. I was blessed to spend time with extended family daily, not just on holidays or weekends. Because of those close-knit familial bonds, every day was full of love and laughter, food and fun.

Life took me away from that extended family for twenty years before I finally made it back. And while I'd done my best to keep the traditions alive across the miles, I reali
