He stole my heart out of revenge.

There was one thing I always thought was mine to give: my heart.

I never imagined a marauder would steal it out of vengeance—vengeance that had nothing to do with me. His greatest enemy happened to be the man in love with me, and somehow I became nothing but a pawn. I was no damsel in distress, though. More like an archer, ready to battle

Bella Di Corte’s writing is grand! Just fucking grand!!

This is the second time she managed to left me speechless with her words. They were not coerced nor conventional. They had a beautiful flow and wonderful connotations, still powerful and intense. Impeccable!

This story was about a marauder, Cash, and an archer, Keely.
A game of hearts.

I loved Machiavellian so I was excited to read Cash and Keely’s story as they caught my attention in Machiavellian.
I really enjoyed it..I am surprised by how much I actually enjoyed the chemistry between Cash and Keely.
Keely Ryan aka Keely Kelly is my kind of girl. She is a strong, independent , loyal badass woman.

I knew it would take an amazingly unconventional guy to win over my girl Keely and Cash was it. He isn’t the hearts and flowers kind of guy but he sure can sweep you off your

It an awesome read!
Keely was such a fierce, strong character!!! Cash was a fucking amazing character, an Alpha male, I loved him from the start of the book!! Marauder was a roller coaster journey.... It had suspense, vendettas, angst, emotion, BUT I missed the spirit that Mac's book had!! Surely it was by far better one!
Congrats to Bella Di Corte, her writing is exceptional!!!

If you have read the first book in the series Machiavelli, then you already met the main characters of this book. Keely is Mari's best friend and Cashel “Cash” Kelly who just spend ten years in jail is ready to take his revenge on the people who wronged his family and community. Even though this book is part of a series it can perfectly be read as a stand-alone. I really enjoyed how strong of a woman Keely was. She stood up for hersel

"I need you more than a heart needs blood. The only addiction to ever have power over me. The only soul to ever conquer my chaotic soul with complete peace."

Cashel / Cash "Marauder" Kelly. The famous thief seeks vengeance on his enemy, Scott Stone by stealing the woman he's in love with -- Keely Ryan. My eyes are set on these two since Machiavellian because of the strong connection they shared. I was curious and they dealt on their own issues.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I enjoyed the first book in the Gangs of New York series and although I had high expectations, but I didn’t expect that the author would step up her game in the second book.

I can honestly say Bella Di Corte has become one of my top favorite authors!! Machiavellian was the first book I read from her and it was like I was living in the shadows of all the crap mafia books that have been coming out lately and then suddenly a light was shining on me lol I absolutely love Machiavellian..such a breath of fresh air without all the OTT nonsense authors have been writing. Cash Kelly was introduced briefly but he made enough of an impact that had me s

First things first, this book is not a standalone. The characters and the timeline are interconnected to each other in this world that Bella has created so it is my opinion that if you want the best reading experience, you start with Machiavellian (book 1) and move forward from there. If you note the release dates for the three books thus far you will see how they’re not that far apart from each other and should give you yet another reason to read them in order.

If you loved Mari & Mac, wait until you meet Keely and Cash. Bella does a fantastic job of balancing the grit of the mafia world and everything you'd want in a romance.

Can't wait for everyone to read, Marauder is definitely my favorite of this series so far ❤️

This book is the second installment in the Gangster of New york series but can be read as a standalone...I would recommend you to read book#1 first as you get the introduction of our main love interest in there...

What an amazing read!! I love Bella and her writing. I am just going to say in my humble opinion that to get the whole story from the very start you should read The Beautiful Years series also. There are so many characters in that series and some pop up in The Gangsters of New York series. That is just me. I want to know everything and what happens next.

It is important to know that Marauder runs in the same time frame as Machiavellian. I would strongly suggest you read Machiavellian before you

Marauder is a second installment of Gangster of New York series by Bella Di Corte and technically can be read as a stand-alone but I strongly recommend picking Machiavellian(first installment) first and continue with Marauder. We had glimpses of this upcoming, unusual couple in Machiavellian and to be honest as soon as Kee and Cash were introduced I was immediately hooked and intrigued by their chemistry!
Their relationship was a battle of wills right from the start, I do love my female characte

I have a weakness for Irishmen, and Cash Kelly is perfection! Gah! I loved him and this story. Keely Kelly is quite the bad bitch herself. I absolutely love a strong heroine. If you like mafia romance, you have to read this book and series! Sooo good!

Still enjoyable but things went so fast. I felt like things didn’t go as smoothly. And the relationship with the kids, I would’ve liked more depth and time with them. But I still do like this author and her writing!

I'm AMAZED...again. I can't believe how beautifully this woman writes. The story line, the way she describes the characters, the dialogue between them and the words, OMG the words...I'm in love!!!!
At this moment I don't know who I love most, Mac or Cash. Bella di Corte creates such complex male characters, so brilliant and so different of what we are all used to in mafia romance stories in general.
You never know what happens next, you can't guess where the story goes and every time you're amazed

I can’t tell you how addicted I am to the Gangsters of New York series. Mafia Romances have always been one of my absolute favourite tropes, and this series embodies everything a good mafia romance is. Each book containing an alpha asshole of epic proportions and a female feisty enough to go head to head with them.

Cash Kelly was a downright 𝚙𝚕𝚎𝚊𝚜𝚞𝚛𝚎 to read about. His ruthlessness, strength and animalistic tendencies drove me insane. And watching Kelly match him a

Did not disappoint. Love love love this series!

It definitely did not disappoint! While I had a little trouble getting into this one in the beginning (that may have had more to do with outside disruptions and distractions than the story itself); it wasn't long before I was so engrossed that nothing could distract me. Not even the hubby trying to talk to me. (He's used to being ignored when I'm reading. Lol!)

This book centered on Keely's and Cashel (Cash) Kelly's story; though we get to revisit so

'Marauder' is the second book in the 'Gangsters of New York' series written by Bella Di Corte. Told in dual perspectives , this book was one wild ride for me!

After reading the first book of this series , cash's book was a much anticipated read of mine. And the author sure did not disappoint! The way she gave us those twists and turns in this story was amazing and so freaking addictive!

Okay... 100% honest review.
I was going to dnf this book at 50% but I ended up not doing it for whatever reason and when I got to 60% I fell in love with this book so... if you want to read this book, the first half you're going to struggle with the story.
I honestly think the reason why I didn't dnf was because I actually like Keely. She was my favorite character here and thats a lot since I didn't like her in Mac’s book.
Other character I like here that I didn't expected to like was Harri

So I jumped into this series on book 2. Luckily for me and all yall out there each book is a stand a lone and can most definitely be read without reading the previous books in the series.

I absolutely adored this book. Well I guess adore isn’t the right word. More like salivated over this book. Keely and Cash are both extremely hot, irresistible characters with the

Cash is The Marauder - he steals what he wants and he wants Keely. Keely is the Archer- her aim is true and and her arrow points at Cash. Keely and Cash were first introduced in Machiavellian. There interactions left you waiting for their story. It does not disappoint. Keely is a strong woman with a lot of backbone and sass. She stands up for herself. She is fierce and protective. She had her demons. Cash also has demons. He has a devious plan and Keely is the centerpiece. The two of them togeth ...more

Cash who is a stealer of hearts and Keeley the archer who put an arrow into Cash's heart.
You get a glimpse of these two in Machiavellian. When I first met them I had wondered what their story was. Now we know.

Both from a broken home, learned to survive the best way they knew how. Their chemistry with each other is hawt!
Like a good story there is drama, blood, and love.

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to
