Book: Man’s Ruin
Author: Nicola R. White
Genre: Sexy Romantic Suspense
Magdalene is a mob-connected madam. Tommy Flynn is the hitman who loves her. And when they’re framed for the murder of a rival crime boss’s favorite son, Magdalene fears the sins of her past have come back to haunt her. After spending half a lifetime in a seamy underworld where love is for sale and men worship at the altar of sex and greed, claiming sanctuary in a cathedral is the last thing she wants to do – and the only chance she has to find out who set her up.
With all clues pointing to Magdalene’s ex-lover, a working girl called Lola, the legendary madam is reluctant to trust Tommy, a smooth-talking hired gun, and risk being burned again. But as time grows short and secrets are revealed, Magdalene will have to look into the dark places inside herself if she is to catch a killer and survive with body and soul intact.
In the corrupt city of Crawley, Massachusetts, passion, crime and religion collide in this steamy, neo-noir romantic thriller.

Review by Paula:
This would be the second book involving The Cat House, and let me say the last one didn’t involve the gangster scenario. Nicola you flow with first person point of view, it’s been a awhile since I’ve read that style. You bring the characters to your readers and have them feel. This action packed story has everything violence, conspiracy, revenge and love. We all have a dark side but it’s in how we perceive it and use it. A must read book if your a gangster style reader with a little BDSM bondage.

When not writing crime novels, Nicola R. White practices law on the east coast of Canada, although you’ll never convince her to reveal which parts of her stories are based on real life. Her work is influenced by legendary crime writers Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, and her favorite drink is an Old Fashioned. She likes to think they would approve.
