Cover Reveal | The Malvagio Mafia Duet by Kelsey Clayton

The Familia is a mystery to most,
and sitting on it’s throne is Kage Malvagio.

The Malvagio Mafia Duet, an all-new dark romance by USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton is coming January 7th and we have the mind-blowing covers!

Suffer in Silence, Book One
Releasing January 7th

Monsters don’t hide in dark alleys.
They lurk in plain sight, clawing into your soul with cordial smiles.
They wear Armani, they drive Cadillacs, they attend fundraising balls…
And they rule the city with a merciless fist.

The Familia is a mystery to most,
and sitting on it’s throne is Kage Malvagio.

Vile.
Sadistic.
Painstakingly beautiful.

Some say: Ask for forgiveness, never permission.
Kage asks for neither.
Especially when he gets his hands on me.

I should hate him.
I should run at the first chance I get.
But how could the devil be so bad when he looks at me like that?

Screams in Symphony, Book Two
Releasing January 27th

There once was a girl,
tarnished and ruined by the actions of others.
Some are born plagued by darkness,
but she was doused in it by those she trusted.

Like Lucifer himself,
she fell from the heavens and landed amongst the flames.
Now she wears her crown black,
with diamonds coated in the blood of her enemies.

This isn’t the story of a girl who saved the villain.
This is the story of a girl who became something much worse,
and the man who loved her for it.
