She’s a Lullaby girl. Her fate is sealed.

In a twisted, underground House of depravity, the women do not belong to me.
But they are mine to train. To groom. To perfect in the most wicked of ways.

This dark House changed me.
What was asked of me, corrupted the man I once was.
But the sickness did not break me.
I remained in control regardless.

Until her.

Cloaked in secrets and lies

Louise H  -  ⭐ Life in the Book Lane Reviews ⭐
Whilst this deals with dark themes of captivity and sex slavery, it didn't hit very high on my dark-o-meter.


I was surprised at the number of reviews that mentioned finding the DD/lg theme disturbing, I thought it featured fairly minimally. Ariana's co-captives had been regressed mentally to a 6 year old, via drugging, though if you don't regress, well there's no returning to your normal life, which leaves living out your days in a whore house, or not living at all.


To my mind the shock factor/ ho

I have probably read 25 or 30 abduction stories, but none with this premise! “The House” trains women for the most unique clientele I’ve ever read about!

Like the authors say, “This place steals women and sells them. Keeping them addicted to a drug that wipes out who they really are so they can play to the fantasies of a bunch of assholes.”

Aside from some proofreading mistakes, everything about this book impressed the hell out of me!

This story just blew me away!
The combination of this writing duo is extraordinary! I love both of their writing and together they are explosive.
Costello works for a family, managing things, doing errands, and getting little's ready for their forever daddy. And he does his job well. Along comes Ariana, and things change quickly.
I loved this story and I am hoping there are more to come, as there are so many stories left unsaid with this book.

I read few stone books so I was curious about this book because of the blurb. And I gotta say I have no problem with daddy kink. But I'm not into age play.

And when I read this well it wad a different sorta dd/lg type of play. The girls didn't even know they were littles they were drugged by a drug that turned them into Littles which was wrong in that type of world. I felt bad for them every girl that was there.
As for our MC Ariana and Costello she wasn't effected by the drug like the other girls

The people that have abducted Ariana are very crafty as their experience has ensured that the women they take are virtually untraceable. Her normal, boring life is about to take a dark turn when she finds herself being drugged and trained to act like a little girl for the men who are willing to pay quite a price for the thrill of having one of these women. The only problem is that these drugs aren’t working on her which only fuels her desire to escape.

Costello is her trainer and he has been very

Because of Dolly (which I read last month; 5 stars!) I'm on a Measha Stone reading spree! My expectations for this book were sky high! I didn't read any reviews and went in blind.

What to say about this book? If you like DD/lg and dark reads, you'll probably love this book.
The story was absolutely unique! Never read something like this before. Maybe because DD/lg is not 'my thing'? 😉 (view spoiler)

Be warned, this is a dark captive romance which some people may find disturbing. The women in this story are generally not there of their free will, so there are non-con elements to the story. That said if you are ok with these elements than you may enjoy the story. I didn't necessarily dislike the story, but I didn't particularly like the main characters, Costello or Ariana. I've read similar stories before but in those instances I cared more about the couple and therefore enjoyed the story mor ...more

The writing and editing of this novel was clean, with few typos that I caught in the ARC version of this manuscript. The world building of the House and Lullaby drug and was vibrant. The characterization was competent, with both hero and heroine being complex individuals. The development of the romantic relationship was good, as far as dark romance goes. I just had a hard time picturing a man who actively trains and rapes sex slaves without any moral qualms being capable of real connection and l ...more

I’m a hug fan of both Ms. Hensley and Ms. Stone.
I love their books and the plots in them.
The premise of Mafia Lullaby intrigued me.
I’ve read lots of books with an abduction theme.
But this story was somewhat unique for me.
The evil men who want the Lullaby Girls are really depraved.
All persons who what to obtained a stolen person of course is evil.
But what’s different here is that these men’s wants are more disgusting.

What a fascinating read. When I first started reading the beginning I thought it was just going to be another kidnapping a woman for sexual purposes. No this was a little more twisted than that. A really intriguing storyline when you realise what the lullaby is and does. The characters in this story each held their own and some you hate, some you felt sorry for and some you absolutely loved and these were the main characters Costello and Ariana. When Ariana was first introduced to the house and ...more

What happens when you get two authors like Measha Stone and Alta Hensley together to write a mafia romance? You get a dark story that is basically kinky af. I mean, imagine kinky books and then multiply that by about 100000 and you may have the idea.

I like Ariana. I think that she's really smart. She's had to be in order to survive. I think that she's also very canny too, which is really important with the life she's currently living. She has also learned to endure, which a lot of people discou

Normally, I enjoy both of these authors immensely. The premise of this story and the blurb were intriguing. Even though this is a much different way of creating a Daddy/little story, it was frustrating, to say the least. I think that is because I was expecting it to have darker undertones. Yes, it had kidnapping and coercion but for some reason, I never got the impression of this being sinister type dark that I was expecting. Even though the idea and Uncle Frank were repugnant it still le

I really wanted to love this, but I’m not a huge fan of the DD/lg theme so there were aspects that didn’t work for me. That being said I did like the captive aspect and I liked how Costello fell for Arianna. There were some suspenseful moments, but things seemed to be resolved rather quickly in each case. I would have liked a bit more bite to the dark theme of the story.

Mafia Lullaby: A Dark Captive Romance by Alta Hensley and Measha Stone was wroth with a Dark, Disturbing, Depravity that had me at a constant state of mental, and emotional disconnect.

I found myself trying to rush through this book, with every intent to read something light, cleansing, and a little less disturbing.

I kept telling myself that this was someone's creative work of art, but I found myself thinking, that somewhere, there are those that think that this behavior of taking away someone e

Just wow! An intense crazy ride that I wholeheartedly loved reading! It is a dark, twisted concept that only comes along with authors who truly defy the box. While I did put it down so I would not throw my device I wouldn't have it any other way! Incredible writing!

A dark story with a touch of a satisfying happy ending. The storyline is tricky, thrilling and well woven, the characters are neatly worked out and everything is very well written, the dance along the abyss is excellently executed.

The relationship building alone didn't quite reach or convince me, something was missing in the moments of the DD/LG seasons. Instead of captivating and deepening the connection, I was rather distracted and wondered how the frame story would go on, what would happen

Mafia Lullaby is a quick novella about a captured girl and her mafia connected trainer. It's dark, dirty and depraved. Ariana is taken from her life to enter a world of "daddies" and "little girls". The theme is a little disturbing as these captive women are given a drug called Lullaby to regress them into 6 year old girls. They dress as little girls, speak like little girls and even color and take baths together. It's very creepy. The "daddies" are the men who train the women for their "big gir ...more

Deliciously dark and devious. Several of my favorite authors have been pairing up for books, and this time they hit the jackpot. With a twisted plot and men who operate on the wrong side of the law, readers are in for a treat. I didn’t know whether to live or hate Costello, and I wanted to leap into the pages to do what I could to save the Lullaby girls. Such was the depth of emotion these authors managed to pull from me as I became engulfed in this book. Feast on the deliciousness that is this ...more

I gave it 3* using Amazon's own Rating System.

Found it to be mainly a silly fantasy, with the cringe-worthy 'Daddy' stuff going on, but was an easy read. FMC was a tad 'wearing'; too dumb for words. Her mouth nearly got her killed. BUT the Alpha Costello? Just the Alpha you'd hope to meet if you found yourself in a similar predicament to 'baby girl'. Heaven forfend. 😂 Worth reading just for Costello; love an Alpha who never changes.

It was OK. I liked some of the story, but not all of it. It wa
