Marauder (Gangsters of New York book 2) by: Bella Di Corte

He stole my heart out of revenge.

There was one thing I always thought was mine to give: my heart.

I never imagined a marauder would steal it out of vengeance—vengeance that had nothing to do with me. His greatest enemy happened to be the man in love with me, and somehow I became nothing but a pawn. I was no damsel in distress, though. More like an archer, ready to battle.

And my target? The marauder himself.

Cashel “Cash” Kelly.

Kelly might have been as gorgeous as he was ruthless, but he had no idea what I’d do to steal it back. Or better yet, get even.

She was determined to keep what was mine.

They say hearts can’t be stolen unless they’re willing to be. Tell that to the man everyone on the streets called “the marauder.”


Because by the time I was through, Keely Ryan’s heart would be mine. And my enemy’s? As good as broken. Trouble was, the archer was precise with her aim, and her arrow was pointed at my heart.

Marauder is the second of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are all based in the same world.



Review by Twinsie Tenise

⭐️⭐️⭐️3 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is book 2 in a series of stand alones. You do not have to read book 1 to understand what is going on in Marauder. Keely is Mari (from book ones) BFF. Keely is a strong independent woman who doesn’t take crap from anyone, this includes a one Mr Cash Kelly.

Cash has just finished a 10 year prison term. His main goal is to get revenge on those who did him wrong. Turns out he plans to use Keely as a pawn in his twisted game to get even with the enemy. The thing is– it doesn’t exactly work out as he planned.

There were glimpses of these 2 in the first book and I was happy to finally be able to get their full story. I’m quite curious to see what happens in the 3rd book.
I read an ARC of Marauder and this is my honest review.

About Bella Di Corte

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.

Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her ( belladicorte at ) if you’d like to reach out.
