Product description

Product Description

*Standalone novel
*18+ Contains mature language and strong sexual themes.

Growing up in a world spun with lies, secrets, and multiple sins, I learned how to use it to my advantage at a young age. My father never protected me from his dealings in the family—La Cosa Nostra. Being the daughter of a mob boss, you pick up a few things, one of which was how to assert dominance in order to survive.
I could do that with the best of them.
My role as a woman was to take care of the house in my mother’s absence—keeping my brother out of trouble, taking care of my father’s legitimate businesses, and showing control in the face of the public. I was a master of control, of manipulating men, of getting what I wanted.
And what I wanted was Stefan Giannotti.
Except, having him meant I had to relinquish control.

I did things I’m not proud of. I made choices that could’ve gotten me killed. But in the end, I did it all for the family, to prove you don’t need a prick between your legs to wield power.
My name is Jordana Albanese, and this is my story.
My story of imperfection, realism, and struggle. It's not for the faintest of hearts. I had to suffer in order to learn, in order to let go an ounce of control, and if you can get through my torment, you’ll understand control is temporary. It's surviving that offers lasting power.

Reviewed by Tracey Lou Parker on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever

The title of this book says it all! The Power Of A Woman revolves around the lives of two main protagonists. Jordana Albanese and Stefan Giannottis. They had two main things in common. One. Both were born into Mafia families. Two. The raw passion they felt for each other.

Jordana lives her life as a Mafia princess. Her father, Carlo, is the current king of the Mafia. Her mother had passed away and she's practically taken over the responsibilities of the day to day running of the household and that of caring for her younger brother. Jordana's no stranger to the shady dealings that went on inside the family. Most Mafia families have an illegal and legitimate side to their business. Jordana's allowed to handle the financial side of the legitimate business. She well-knows that growing up in this kind of environment means being able to survive in a world where you need to have balls of steel, ruthlessness and not showing any weaknesses. She came across in this book as exactly that. Until...

Stefan is the son of Mick Giannottis. The heir to the Giannottis family business. It wasn't always that way as Stefan had had an older brother who unfortunately met with an untimely demise. Stefan was brought back into the fold to help run the family business which was loan-sharking.

What an explosive affair Jordana and Stefan have! It didn't take me long to suss Jordana out either. I understood her like to control; nevertheless, with Stefan she willingly surrenders it. Dominate her is precisely what he did and precisely what I wanted him to do, too. A relationship which starts off as a casual fling becomes so much more as time passes by.

In 'THE POWER OF WOMAN,' authors Gina Whitney & Leddy Harper have painted fifty shades of the La Cosa Nostra. Jordana and Stefan heat up the pages in this steamy romance in a way that would make Christian Grey jealous.

Stefan's is dominating; Jordana is controlling submissive, together they carry out a secret relationship beneath the noses of their feuding crime families. But the charade cannot last forever. Trying to balance the conflicting requirements of love, family, and a criminal organization is not an easy thing for either of them. Eventually they must come to grips with their dilemma. And here we find the ruthlessness of the mafia is no match to the Power of a Woman.

Family dynamics, loyalty, honor and love fill the pages as the plot drives quickly forward. I found myself flipping ahead through the pages because I was so desperate to find out what happens. Being a New York Italian myself, I was amazed at how well the authors captured the City and put into play many Italian traditions. If you liked The Sopranos, you are going to love this book. It's really a great read and I'm so glad I have found these awesome new authors.

4.5 Stars May be Slight Spoilers Ahead for Some....Read with Caution

Wow, what a great sexy love story! These two authors first off, are fantastic and the storyline was terrific! The writing was impeccable, I was glued from start until finish, never ever bored with the storyline and/or the characters.

Now, why not a full 5 Stars then, well personally I HATED the part where Jordan STUPIDLY and not to my liking and/or reading tastes decides to make a bargain for her brother's life. Yeah, that whole part was a big FAT NO for me. I wouldn't have minded if she made the deal and then backed out BUT to have had her actually go through with it was not just a huge no for me but a slight turn-off for me. Sorry that's just me and honestly I wasn't sure if I could or wanted to continue on BUT I was also curious to see what would happen. Yeah, a gluten for punishment, lol, but I am so glad that I continued on.

Now Stefan......oh lordy, this man was PERFECT, he was the absolute epitome of perfection, if you looked up perfect in a dictionary Stefan would be there! Yeah, this man, was like a god...he was sexy, he was dominant, he was possessive and caring in an understated way at FIRST but then when his feelings of love finally came to surface, the words this man spoke, his actions....OMG, I am squirming and feeling giddy just thinking about him. HE was what made me continue on after that part of the book that I did NOT like and because of HIM, I never regretted a moment to continue to the end! There aren't enough words to accurately describe my feelings for him, he was THAT AMAZING in every way:) Jordana was one lucky bitch I tell ya, lol!!!! if only every story could have an H like Stefan, I would buy every book!!!!!!!!

Congrats to Leddy Harper and Gina Whitney on a truly fantastic, sexy read!!!!!!!!!!!! With the exception of that one part, this was a PERFECT read for me:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves nothing behind, a full on romance! Dec 7 2015
By Books Laid Bare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A Mafioso romance that was as honest as it was harsh.
Two young people, one from each of the two most powerful mafia families in New York, never destined to be together but what does desire know about being curtailed by convention and expectation.
In this case we had Jordana Albanese and Stefan Giannotti, treading a path towards a love that was strewn with pitfalls, lined with danger and destined to take them both to their very limits.
But family demands and expectations weigh heavy on them both but for Jordana she faces a decision that might just put paid to any happiness, and all in a bid to save her brother’s life.
Jordana is perfectly well aware that her brother has crossed the wrong man but little did she know that when she approached Zeke in an attempt to ensure that the revenge exacted wouldn’t be terminal, what exactly he would expect from her.
Now I get the whole Mafia being bad guys and not being able to be seen to be anything other than the crime lords that there are but I was taken aback by the fact that Zeke demanded Jordana for a week in return for expunging her brother’s debt.
Did he know what was going on between her and Stefan and was this more of a point scoring exercise between the ranks of the Giannotti family?
I loved the dynamic of the families, the connections and the deceit. I was blown away by the tenacity that Jordana exhibited, the determination that she wouldn’t be looked over merely due to the fact that she was a woman. This mafia daughter had bigger asperations but that also meant that she also had bigger obstacles to overcome and the more voracious opponents to defeat.
As Stefan and Jordana grow closer, can the inner sanctum of the families, the history of their pasts and the brutal truth of the world they live in allow what they have to flourish or are they destined to fall and fail at the hands of others.
Will the internal dynamics and family politics be their undoing?
This had more hidden in the tank than I had anticipated but neither author was willing to show their hand too soon and it made for a story that I simply devoured.
The writing was pitched perfectly, it was concise and elaborate but most of all it was colourful, it left nothing behind in pitch or tone and that approach meant that I was able to see the story in all its glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bella Tesoro Dec 4 2015
By Nikki k - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Book: The Power of a Woman
Genre: Erotica/BDSM/Dark Read
Authors: Gina Whitney and Leddy Harper
Reviewer: Nikki K
Stars: 5

Jordana and Stefan come from the same world. The old world, La Cosa Nostra, the mob. He is the heir to the thrown of the Gionotti family and she the crowned princess of the Albanese. Their families are bitter rivals but their desire for one another is to much to ignore.

Being in control of her life and those around her is the only way Jordana can compete with the misogynistic world she inhabits, but when it comes to Stefan, she gives everything. More than she knew she had. Stefan takes her submission and returns pleasure, the likes of which she has never known.

When the feud between their families threatens to destroy her brother, Jordana takes matters into her own hands. Discovering the lengths she'll go to protect her brother, Stephan is moved to step in and save her from herself. Together the pair will take on the ways of old and help move the families into the new millennia.

Stefan's Dominate side is balanced out by the swoon worthy need he has for Jordana. "I've been waiting for you Tesoro. All of this time...it's always been you." I ask you, what woman would not melt hearing those words? But make no mistake, Jordana is no delicate flower, she hand hold her own and stand up to all that comes her way, including the dark sexual tastes of the sexy Alpha Dom.

When I was offered an ARC of this book I jumped at the opportunity. Gina Whitney is by far one of my favorite writers(I say writer as opposed to author, because I love the way she writes)and I was excited to discover Leddy Harper, a new writer to me. As I turned each page I was riveted and wanted more. The writing styles of Gina and Leddy blended seamless in this dark and sexy tale of love, desire, submission and power.

The plotline of this book does take a turn to the dark side, but there is enough heat and excitement to keep even those that shy away from the genre on the edge of their seats. I loved this book and would absolutely recommend it to everyone who enjoys strong woman, sexy alpha men, a bit of BDSM and really good writing. This book should definitely be on your TBR list.

I give this book 5 stars and hope to see more for this powerful writing duo in the future.

**I was gifted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Their feelings grow stronger, but family problems get in their way causing an unmeasurable amount of distress. Jordana's younger brother gets into a bit of bother with the Giannottis. Thinking she can help her brother with or without the support of Stefan or her father, she unwittingly puts herself into a dangerous situation that doesn't go well. As a reviewer, I can only say "Read the book and all your questions will be answered!" Will the families be a stumbling block for Jordana and Stefan's happily ever after? Or will love and Mafia truly avail? I sure hoped so!

Gina Whitney and Leddy Harper. Congratulations on this joint collaboration. The knowledge and depth you gave to this book made it a most enjoyable read. I felt as if I was right there in the middle of a scene from "The Godfather". Jordana was feisty and gutsy and complimented Stefan so well in all aspects of their life together. I really liked her as a character and Stefan wasn't too bad himself as a dominant alpha male. He definitely made my toes curl and then some. The sizzling sex scenes were just that, Sizzling! Thank you. A book that truly deserves five hot, powerful stars.
