Bram's Lullaby The Four Series Book 1 by EA Hunt Genre: Mafia Urban Romance
te dua (I love you) ... the voice whispered in Albanian. Since his accident almost a year ago in New York Bram had heard the intoxicatingly sweet voice murmur I love you in his parents native tongue and sing a lullaby his mother had taught him as a child.
Problem was he didn't know the voice, couldn't place it to anyone in which he had known unless the voice which calmed and soothed him when he was on the brink belonged to someone he couldn't remember. Someone who was taken from him when he woke from his accident with his time in New York all but erased.
Who was the owner of the voice and why does it feel like finding the person it belongs to will lead to his greatest joy in life.....
He'd Left. Gotten Out. Given up the heir apparent "Boss" to the Miller Irish Crime Family much to his family's dismay. He was content ... until her. Until she needed him and only the "Boss" could save her. He'll go back for her. Only for her because being the "Boss" is the only way to save her and maybe himself.
Audra wasnt suppose to be here. She wasnt suppose to be standing before him with a stunned and pained expression on her face.
Audra hadn’t expected to see Ren ever again. No! She never wanted to see him again. He was her enemy would always be her enemy. So, why was he the first person she thought of when danger came knocking at her door?
Hurt, pain, and misunderstandings have led Ren and Audra to lose the love they once had for each other. Can they find it again or is it too late to find redemption?
Love and Redemption go hand and hand ........

She was a temptation like no other. Kendrik knew he shouldn’t want her but ...? Could he give into the temptation she presented? Or should he let her go? Let her live the life she wanted. A life which was not in his world. A world she had fought to leave once and for all.
She was free. Well she thought she was free but the temptation of Kendrik was too much. In one night. In one act he had shown her more care than she'd ever had in her life. But she couldn’t have him. Rouva knew she couldn’t have him. He was part of her past. A past she had fought hard to leave behind her. But what if she gave in. What if she gave into the temptation Kendrik presented. Could she go back? Could she live in his world? Or would giving into temptation destroy them both.
I think the Mafia world created by EA Hunt is one of my faves of her novellas!
It's always got an undercurrent of tension and danger in addition to the love story.
Your readers will love this novella as much as I do. Also loved all the female friendships - R Holcomb Beta Reader

What do you do to unwind and relax?
A glass of wine on my back porch in front of the fire pit
How to find time to write as a parent?
That is one of the hardest questions I have ever been asked. Since I have an five year old I find myself doing a lot of writing when she is sleep or when she is doing homework, they are teaching her how to write her name (Yay!). When she is occupied I am writing either and chapter or just a few sentences. But like most parents I’m writing them she is sleeping.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I woke in the middle of the night picked up a pen and wrote and whole novella in four hours. It was one of my first novellas and the story, like many, was gnawing at me and until I put pen to paper I knew I wasn’t going back to sleep.
What inspired you to write this book?
The Four was a labor of love. I have always been a fan of the grittier part of life. How those that commit the sins The Four commit can still find love, hope in that life. I wanted to show that. Show that even criminals have families and are family men and women not matter what crime they commit.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I’m taking my writing in a new direction. I heard someone say one time that after a while you have to change things up because if you don’t you will find yourself in a rut. So, Im walking into the poly (ménage) relationship world. I’ve always written straight men and women roles and thought what would happen if added three hearts instead of just two. How do you navigate that. How do you communicate that so that people will see this world is just as normal as a traditional single man and single woman relationship
How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?
Most mafia or urban books are about street gangs or the Italian Mafia, think God Father. I wanted to show other forms of organized crime. Street gangs and The Mob are the only entities out there and I wanted to portray. I wanted to show these men and the women they love as normal people. That they are completely rule by the world they live in and that even in the business in which they deal with there can and are those worse than what is seen and portrayed.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
The romance. I enjoy writing the romance more than anything. Danger is there that’s a given considering what the books are about. But I wanted to show how these men wooed their women. How they showed them they could be just as normal as anyone else.
If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
I love this question and truly wish to answer it but since I haven’t seen too many movies lately I cant…lol.
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
Yes (long sigh). I think my characters hijack any story I am writing because its their story. Its how they want people to see them. How they want the world to perceive them. Since they are leading I just follow and to be honest it can be quite fun and a little naughty to follow them.
Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
The Four is not your typical mafia related stories. They are all different and can all be read as an stand alone. Each man is different. Each woman is different and not whom you’d think would end up with men like these nor would you see men with woman like these. All these characters are strong, lovable and can make you swoon.
Do you see writing as a career?
I do. I would love to have a writing room at my house where its filled with books, a comfy chair behind a desk and my laptop. Pouring out great book after great book for the world to consume.
What do you think about the current publishing market?
Its saturated and hard to find your niche. Mine is romances that aren’t typical. My paranormal romances include African American leads and whole families of African American characters. Not many people write African American paranormal characters. Or underworld figures of African American figures who are not the bad guy. I want to show not all African Americans are the bad guy.
Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
Romance novelist. Romance reader.
What makes a good story?
A believable story. Something the audience can see themselves apart of or see in their own lives or the lives of their family or friends
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
Original. I don’t want you to see the twist coming. I want you to think ‘oh I know how this is going to end. Or I know what’s going to happen next’ then I throw you for a loop. I love reading reviews where people say they didn’t see that coming…lol
If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Keep going. You’re good at this and when Amazon first started self publishing to jump on that bandwagon …. Le sigh
