The truth hurts, but lies can kill…
Ruthless King, an all-new standalone dark mafia romance by Faith Summers is available now!
I offer to do anything to save my father’s life when he’s captured by the devil he owes a debt to.
A three-million-dollar debt.
So, I became the devil’s spy as I enter the lair of the Cartel King to take a job as a live-in nanny for his niece.
My orders were simple.
All I needed to do was this:
Get close to the Cartel King.
Be his to do anything he wants me to do.
Make him trust me enough to tell me the secrets his enemies need.
Do that, and I will save my father.
I just never expected to fall in love.
Or that Alejandro Ramírez would be the first man to heal my broken heart.
When he discovers the truth, I may wish I’d died instead of making that deal with the devil.
Ruthless King’ is the sixth book in the Dark Syndicate series. It is a standalone Age-Gap Dark Mafia Romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers.

Lucia is taken to be a nanny to a cartel king’s child as part of her way to help her father out of debt. While Lucia and Alejandro are attracted to each other, I did not feel the chemistry between them. It was super fast insta love…which unfortunately I do not care for. She doesn’t know anything about this guy except that he’s a cartel leader, killer, murderer and is swooning minutes after she meets him. Knowing he will use her as a human pin cushion. On top of that, she is supposed to be taking care of the most precious thing in the world to him and getting inside info to give to the guy who her dad owes money to.
I saw some of the reviews were glowing for this story and I’m sorry to say that I wasn’t able to connect with the characters. I have seen this storyline before and really need a twist early on in a book for me to like it. Sadly this story did not do it for me, contrary to a lot of readers. A few steamy scenes kept my attention but other than that I skimmed a little. Maybe like the majority of the reviews, you will fall in love with this book and enjoy the insta love.
Raw heat is still streaking through my body just from the mere handshake.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more perfect man.
Eyes the shade of a crow’s wing are locked on mine, and full symmetrical lips
quirk up into a mercurial smile.
His face is all angles with high exotic cheekbones and a chiseled jaw you’d
find on a storybook prince. The bright morning sun shines over his skin, making it
look like the sun kissed it that color bronze.
The gray streaks in his beard, hairline, and temples only serve to highlight his
beauty and strength in what I can see of the rest of his body. As if to highlight that his
perfection came with age and he’ll look even better and better, and sexier, the older
he gets. The silver hoop in his ear tames him a fraction, adding to his style but also
conjuring the image of a pirate in my mind. It gives a glimpse of the conquering cartel
king he is.
Of course, I was given a picture of Alejandro Ramírez before coming to this ill-
fated interview. So, I already knew he looks like a seamless blend of Antonio
Banderas and my all-time favorite Mexican actor Eduardo Verástegui.
Alejandro is what they would look like if they were one person.
The lucid image makes me wonder if I really am stuck in a fucked-up rendition
of a dark fairytale. One where he is the prince and I’m the villain, or maybe everyone
is the antithesis to good in this story.
