Two strangers on the same path.
Survivors. Companions.
They will be each other’s salvation.


On a rainy, winter night, a mysterious woman in a red dress seeking shelter comes inside the restaurant Kabir was busy working in —primarily the bar— and night after night, drink after drink, she comes back to the same spot. That is where he sees her for the first time.

Hundreds of patrons around her try to speak with her daily, but she dismisses them. It appears she wants to remain in a blissful peace alone with her booze and books.

The Name of Red is the story of two strangers, two different personalities who meet on a winter, rainy night who challenge each other. They have a connection which blossoms into a friendship due to their fondness of books. But they both have secrets that can bind them together or threaten their newfound relationship forever.

Excert

The restaurant Ferdaus was filled with a buzzing crowd.
The smoke around the people twisted and formed curls, illuminated under the bar lights. The atmosphere was a hazy cloud, lingering against their clothes. Several people came in seeking shelter from the pouring rain outside. The customers of the restaurant turned to look at the entrance door- bell jingling. They glanced at the large crowd coming as the glass door was pulled open, and they watched as someone newstepped in behind them.
The woman walked into the bar for the first time in the winter rain.
She didn’t have an umbrella on her; her little sleeveless dress
ended at her ankles, fully drenched. Her wet dress clung to her
body, showcasing the outlines of her curves. In one hand, she
was carrying the skirt of her dress. Suddenly, she let it go, and
her long, bare arms moved upwards as she tried to fix her damp
hair which had darkened in intensity due to the rain. It fell past her
shoulders, the strands sticking to her face. She attempted to comb
through the tangles with her fingertips.
The men watched her movements hungrily, their eager faces drawn
to her and at the sight of someone new. Their eyes trailed from her
face, to her wet body, then back to the movements of her hands
entwined in her hair. Under her arm, she carried a book and a trench coat.
It appeared strange she wasn't wearing the coat when it was pouring
outside and freezing in the middle of November. Men were left
mesmerized by her, and she turned heads as she walked by.
Something radiated from within her, drawing the men around her in. 
The women who were with some of these men noticed their gaze on the
unfamiliar woman. Now they stared at her with jealousy and anger.
Who is she? they wondered.




The bartender placed her drink, in front of her. 
She eyed the amber liquid and the golden glow of the glass-like
cubes in her cocktail. Sometimes, she ordered whiskey mixed
with vodka because she liked the amber color, otherwise she
preferred vodka. The bartender called it New York Whisk. She
was entranced by the mini icebergs in the glass. She reached
for her drink with her slim, long fingers.
Alcohol.
The elixir of her life.
The strong tonic was the only cure to her life. She lifted the
drink to her lips, and the taste burned her tongue and throat.

“Do you read E.L James?” she asked Kabir one day.
Kabir shook his head as he took a sip of his Red Bull. “I read
her books before, but they’re not my type of romance novels.”
“Bondage isn’t your kink?”
He sputtered his drink, astonished at her direct question.
He was mortified, as his mouth fell open, before clamping
it shut again. He was stunned in silence at her boldness.
His cheeks burned hot, and he didn’t know where to hide
his face from her sight. His movements were frozen to the spot.
Did she really just say that out loud? he thought.
He noticed she was suppressing a smile, and she was
enjoying his reaction. The sight of him blushing egged
her on.“You’re very straight forward,” Kabir admitted softly.

Cover Reveal ~ Marauder by Belle Di Corte





Title: Marauder (Gangsters of New York, Book 2) 
Author: Bella Di Corte 
Genre: Mafia Romance 
Release Date: August 7, 2020 



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.” Me. 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.

My eyes made a slow journey to his, and that was when he locked me in again. “You’re a little psycho in the bedroom, aren’t you, Ms. Ryan?”
“Me? Little?” A boisterous roll of laughter thundered from my mouth. 
He made it a point to look down at me, proving his point that I was smaller than him. No man had ever made me feel that way before. It wasn’t totally physical, either, and that made me uncomfortable. I had finally met my match. If I ever told him to go to hell, he’d probably invite me along, because he’d been there before. 
Instead of hell, maybe it was time that I invited him to heaven. I leaned in closer, putting my lips close to his neck, right over his pulse point. I made sure my voice was breathy, so warm air blew over his skin. “Wouldn’t you like to know how I am in bed, marauder.”
  He grinned and then let out a breath of a laugh. I breathed in and then automatically breathed out. I refused to take him inside of my lungs. He wasn’t my air; he was my suffocation. 
 

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 crazy 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 at belladicorte@gmail.com if you’d like to reach out.
