Danielle | 125 comments I'm looking for a proofreader to be the last pair of eyes on my MS. It's been copy-edited already. Must be comfortable with violence, profanity, and explicit sex. Send a message or email me at if interested. Thanks!

Danielle | 125 comments Hi, Niki. It's a contemporary mafia romance. I'll post the synopsis below.

She’s a romantic at heart, living in the most unromantic of worlds . . .

Nicknamed The Sweet Abelli for her docile nature, Elena smiles on cue and has a charming response for everything. She’s the favored daughter, the perfect mafia principessa . . . or was.

Now, all she can see in the mirror’s reflection is blood staining her hands like crimson paint.

They say first impressions are everything . . .

In the murky waters of New York’s underworld, Elena’s sister is arranged to marry Nicolas Russo. A Made Man, a boss, a cheat—even measured against mafia standards. His reputation stretches far and wide and is darker than his black suits and ties. After his and Elena’s first encounter ends with an accidental glare on her part, she realizes he’s just as rude as he is handsome.

She doesn’t like the man or anything he stands for, though that doesn’t stop her heart from pattering like rain against glass when he’s near, nor the shiver that ghosts down her spine at the sound of his voice.

And he’s always near. Telling her what to do. Making her feel hotter than any future brother-in-law should. Elena may be The Sweet Abelli on the outside, but she’s beginning to learn she has a taste for the darkness, for rough hands, cigarettes, and whiskey-colored eyes. Having already escaped one scandal, however, she can hardly afford to be swept up in another.

Besides, even if he were hers, everyone knows you don’t fall in love with a Made Man . . . right?

Sara Sykora | 22 comments I am also available to proofread. The last book I proofread, I caught errors the other editors of the book didn't catch. What are you looking for turnaround time?

Thanks for the opportunity!
