From International Bestselling authors Callie Hart and Lili St. Germain comes a tale of two families co-existing in a melting pot of violence, murder and drugs in the seedy underbelly of New York City

Hell’s Kitchen

Theo and Sal Barbieri are brothers, tasked by their Mafioso father Roberto with a very clear purpose: kidnap Kaitlin McLaughlin. The beautiful daughter of Roberto’s Irish enemy. It’s high time Kaitlin was punished for her father’s sins—not to mention, her own.

And Operation: Kidnap Kaitlin is a roaring success… until it isn’t. When Kaitlin escapes into the busy streets of New York City, it’s a race against the clock to find her before Sal and Theo become the hunted.

Zeth Mayfair has traded his life as a hitman for a quieter existence, but it isn’t long before the past catches up with him in the form of Roberto Barbieri. Will he succumb to the lure of power that Roberto is offering? Or will he retaliate by killing every last Barbieri in New York to get them off his back?

Jason Ross is running. Woken in the night by a tip that the Gypsy Brothers are coming for him, he packs a bag and gets his girlfriend the hell out of dodge. Arriving in New York City in the midst of a heatwave is one thing, but being tailed by an entire drug cartel is another.

Worlds collide in Hell’s Kitchen as secrets come to light and sins are punished. Because we might be different in the light of day, but in the darkness, we’re all connected somehow.

Hell’s Kitchen is a serial comprising three volumes: Hell’s Kitchen, Tribeca and Bleecker Street.


I enjoyed the HELL out of this book! Hell’s Kitchen was a clusterfuck of greatness! My mind is still going in circles, wondering what the hell just happened! And I LOVE IT! These two badass authors gives us something unique, sexy, and intense. By the end of Book 1, my jaw hurt from being dropped on the ground so damn much. I feel like I need to draw a map of these characters that we were introduced to. There is so many, but not so many where you would get lost easily. Be prepared for madness, danger, and intrigue! I was trying to decide what genre to stick this in and I came to the conclusion of Mafia Dark Romance. In Book 1, there isn’t any romance, I KNOW RIGHT?! But who cares, it still kicked ass! And you know…YOU JUST KNOW that a romance is brewing! You can feel it in your bones! I can’t tell you how excited I am about this series, about these characters, and I hope that these two authors collaborate on more and more projects, because separately they are fantastic authors, but together they are fucking ROCK STARS!

I can’t say much about the plot of this story, because I do not want to give anything away, just know that whatever happens in Hell’s Kitchen DOES NOT stay in Hell’s Kitchen.

I can’t wait to get tangled back up in this web of awesomeness! I want more!

About Callie Hart

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.
