Any minute I am going to wake up from this nightmare. Being tied up and thrown in the trunk of a car doesn’t happen in real life. Except the silk tie around my wrists feels very real. And my father, Johnny Conti, the head of the Outfit, is telling me to be a good girl—that I’m to be the wife of the man who tied me up and has me over his wide shoulder.

Some women might swoon

Regina's been away at boarding school for years when her father calls her home. It's while home she finds out not only who her fiancé really is, but to whom she's been promised since she was born - a Sabatini. But Regina will not sit by quietly, no, she's strong willed and no wilting wallflower, and will bring Dominic to his knees, even if he is loathe to admit it.

Dominic's a capo, not higher, his life is what it is. He has no desire for

Wow, these guys get better as the stories go on and the more powerful, they are the harder they fall. I loved Dominic’s story and his fall.

Dominic Sabatini is a Capo in The Outfit. Son of Anthony Sabatini and cousin to Cesar, Dante, and Vincenzo Sabatini. He runs a club and has women when he wants them. He fought to keep his father’s territory and Dom’s right to what would eventually be his when he was fifteen and on his own, while his father did time. He went to Johnny Conti, now the Don of The

Dominic is the go-to guy who solves problems. Regina seems a little innocent about the world she lives in. The author does a good job in her ability to have me feel Regina’s anger. She gave me some funny moments too. It seemed as if Dominic gave Regina permission to swear then once she started it was hard not to laugh.

I did have a wish though. I would have loved to see her do it a couple of times in Italian – even though I can’t read or speak the language. Other than that, I en

Dominic, you started out as the back end of a horse
I get you did what you had to do - honor and all that blubber you were spouting
But now...
Props old man - Feels good doesn't it?

Regina my dear sweet child - YOU GO, GIRL!
I am so proud of you for not backing down (most of the time)
I gave you a bit of leeway with your choices because of your age and the fact I probably would have reacted similarly

This is a forced marriage, light suspense, with a whole lot of push and pulls mafia romance.

I always enjoy a dark mafia story and finding a new author to me is always exciting. This story has some darkish moments that are very fitting and I like how they weren’t fussy but smoothly executed in the story. There are quite a lot of lighter ones that balance things out well. The storyline is a busy one with quite a few things going on yet not overwhelming, there is plenty of drama and action to keep it thrilling and fast paced.

This was my first romance read by Fiona Murphy and by way of introduction to her books, it was definitely a good one.

This book is a slightly dark, intense mafia romance with all the feels and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dominic is a possessive, alpha, hero who will piss you off and turn you on all at the same time and quite frankly you’ll love every minute of it. Absolutely opposed to the concept of love and family, he lives his life as he damn well pleases. Regina is a (not so) shy, sheltered, cur

What is a girl to do when she is tied up and thrown in the trunk of a car? Why fall in love with the man who puts her there of course. In this book we get Dominic Sabatini man-whore extraordinaire and self proclaimed bachelor for life. Little does he know he is about to be knocked on his ass by our sweet, beautiful, and oh so sassy heroine Regina. Regina's life looks like it has been a fairy tale from the outside, but in reality it is anything but. Granted there is more things at play than she k ...more

HIS : Dominic is the first instalment in Fiona Murphy’s contemporary, adult THE SABATINI FAMILY dark, erotic, Mafia, romance series-a spin off from the author’s Dirty Billionaires series. This is forty year old, capo/soon to be underboss Dominic Sabatini, and twenty-two year old, translator Regina ‘Gina’ Conti’s story line.

I have to give this one 5 stars. I just HAVE to!

This author was new to me, but not any longer. Thank God! I just grabbed up a few more to add to this collection.

This story - a Mafia story hot enough to burn my Kindle and sizzle the insides.

I think the thing I loved most (aside from the characters and their steamy (flaming hot) story) is that the author dispersed equal parts light with dark when it came to the storytelling. This is, after all, a Mafia story. To have left it all light and fluffy w

This book had my heart beating and boy did I fall in love. Dominic is exactly that a mafia Dom who will make your heart melt and your panties wet. He is a high ranking Capo in The Outfit and he knows what he wants and doesn't. And what he doesn't is to be called upon by the Don in The Outfit Johnny Conti, but when the Don calls you go no matter what. What he doesn't expect is the dying wish of the man he is not fond of and that is to protect his daughter and get her away from a man that is a wol ...more

This is my first book from Fiona Murphy and I must say I enjoyed this so much! Dominic was such a great character and loved learned all about him. He's a Capo in The Outfit and son of Anthony Sabatini. He is, for all purposes, the quintessential mafia guy. He has women whenever he wants them but has also done things to help "the family".

It was AMAZING! I have been anticipating this one since Bethany's book, you could totally tell he was going to get his own book. When I received it by email it was almost eight at night and it was long and I didn't care I downloaded and started it. I laughed a few times and I cried like a baby a few others. This wasn't missing a thing, not a single thing. Dominic is a jerk, no surprise, he scared me once or twice but in the end he was exactly what I should have known he was going to be. I loved ...more

This is the 1st in a new series and is Dominic and Regina’s journey. Dominic is powerful, dangerous, and dominant, and when he is pressurized into getting married this womanizer is not happy, especially when he is asked by Regina’s father to marry her. Reginia is sassy and is looking forward to marrying her boyfriend and leave the mafia family behind, instead she finds herself tied up and thrown into the trunk of a car. These two are total opposites but they have more in common than either ever ...more
Dominic 🔥& he🔥
My heart went to him because he didn't want children especially a male. Because his son will have to live his life which he hate. He doesn't want his son to live it. Dominic is a bad ass and he thinks for his future son by not having kids. To me that's a real hero right there !!

Regina was very naive when we first met her and I wanted to strangle her when a certain piece of evidence was shown to her. Then I started to love when she realised she is in love with Dominic.

I had the privilege of receiving this book as an ARC, and boy was I in for a treat. Yet again Fiona has thrilled me with her alpha heroes who love their curvy women. Dominic was such a force to be reckoned with, and it would take a woman of equal measure to fit him just so. They are both broken, but they find solace in one another. I really enjoyed the character development of both the FMC and the MMC. I also love the set up for her next book about Tony, even more intrigued and cannot wait for M ...more

New to me author. I love her. I'll definitely be reading more from her .
Dominic and Regina knew from their very first meeting that they were meant for each other. But they wouldn't be who they were if they didn't deny it.
They fought the good fight trying so hard not to love each other. In the end they fell hard anyway.

I'll definitely be going back and reading about Dominic's cousins.

Thank you Fiona for allowing me to read this and discover how wonderful the Sabatini family really is.

Dominic Sabatini can tie me up and throw me in the trunk of his car any day of the week..... In fact he can tie me up anyway he wants.

HIS - is a sizzling hot mafia romance that will melt your panties right off. This is an older man younger girl romance that had a really great storyline giving you a great insight into the Sabatini Family and setting the reader up for what is to come in this must read series.

Miss Fiona Murphy has outdone herself with her latest Sabatini alpha! With one of her strongest female mc’s yet, Dominic and Regina melt the pages as they navigate their tortured souls through a battle of wills, stubborn pride and a dark world that could leave them both scorched.

If you’re a fan of her Sabatini Brothers, this one will not disappoint. While Dominic is a bigger pill to swallow than the previous Sabatini’s, I promise he goes down oh so smooth!

I devoured this book and can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s an arranged marriage story that is thrilling from beginning to end. The hero is totally swoon worthy and the ultimate alpha. He’s very controlling and serious. Yet an absolute softie as well. I genuinely enjoyed reading Dominic and Regina’s story and need to read other books by this author.

This one had all the feels of what I like in a Mafia Romance. Dominic was the perfect alpha hero who started out as a cold blooded ruthless womanizing mobster and ended up falling hard for mafia princess, Regina.
Dark with tight knit loyalty woven into the plot.
I liked the way Dominic was drawn to Regina emotionally which was totally out of character for him. Saving her from her predator boyfriend was the start of a tumultuous yet romantic love story, mafia style.

Loved it! Sleep, who needs sleep when you have an excellent book to read

Fiona has a way of pulling me in with her characters and makes them feel like family. I’ve been looking forward to Dom’s book and the wait was worth it! I’m waiting with anticipation for Tony’s book and praying that Luca is the next one on the series! Thank you Ms Murphy for a wonderful book!

This was my first time reading this author. She did a wonderful job with this story. Dominic and Regina were perfect for each other because of how different they could be at times. Dominic never wanted to be in love get married or have kids, but all that is about to change once he sees Regina. She is about to turn his whole world upside down. Regina never wanted to marry a mafia man. She wanted a normal man and normal life. Of course her father the Don had other plans for her. Regina father has ...more

I love dark mafia romances – the danger, the ruthlessness and the debauchery. Even thought the general plot of an unwanted arranged marriage was not the newest idea, I still truly enjoyed His because of the complex personalities of Dom and Regina.

Dominic was a self-proclaimed bachelor. He was a ruthless made man who was loyal to the Sabatini family and to only a close circle of people that he claimed. Sassy Regina wanted nothing to do with the mafia. However, being the daughter of the h
