A to Z Blog Challenge Day #2 Letter B~ Black Tears A Marchetti Family Novel by Author Angel Nyx

Welcome to Day two of my post in the A to Z Blog Challenge. I’m so glad you came back or if this is your first time being here nice to meet you! Grab a coffee and stick around to chat with me! I’ll be showcasing all the books with my theme of Books by Indie Authors A to Z.

Day 2 is the letter B and I’ve been excited for this one since I started planning this challenge! Today I would like you all to meet Indie Author Angel Nyx bringing us the book Black Tears:A Marchetti Family Novel.

Author Angel Nyx

Angel Nyx usually writes in the paranormal shifter romance category with her NOLA series so this one is an unexpected change for her and I’m so glad she decided to make this move! She’s such a talented writer no matter the category and this mafia romance is here to prove it!

This is how the blurb from Amazon reads:

Giovani Marchetti

I don’t date employees. I don’t even sleep with them. That can make things too messy when it all goes south. One look at Carly and my fingers itch to trace every luscious curve of her body. But I have secrets. Secrets that could destroy lives.

Carly Ballentyne

After my son’s father was killed I focused on just being a mother. I didn’t date. I definitely didn’t date my employer. Every time Gio calls me Bella in that sexy, Italian voice, my resolve melts just a little more. Would it really be so wrong to let him make me feel whole again?

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This book is intended for mature readers, 18+, due to adult content.

Black Tears has all the mafia suspense and dangerous romance you can handle! Giovanni is the oldest son of the Marchetti family and it’s his responsibility to ensure the family strip club gets and stays in the plus. Carly Ballertyne’s son’s father was killed and she must work at the Marchetti family strip club as she is sold to them and Giovanni falls for her, although he knows he shouldn’t. This thrilling story has all the witty banter, sexiness and twists and turns that make it a hit for me! I really loved Gio and Carly’s story and I couldn’t guess what was coming next until it happened. It is very well written and the plot was suspenseful and intriguing. Angel Nyx hit it out of the park with this angsty mafia romance and I’m hopin for book 2! I’m rating this one Four stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and recommend it for anybody who loves Mafia Romance and suspenseful twists and turns. This was a great introduction to the mafia world for Angel and I can’t wait to read the next Marchetti Family book!

Here are some other reader reviews that I found too:

Kathleen Bulfon5.0 out of 5 stars Just Awesome!! Reviewed in Canada on April 25, 2019AMAZING! A fantastic, well written read. An intense storyline that holds your attention as you get caught up in the fierce twists and hot chemistry. Plenty of excitement and emotionally heartfelt. A thrilling must read.
“I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book”

KA Wright 5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed in the United States on May 1, 2019 “Loved this book! Black Tears is a break from the usual shifter romances that Angel Nyx writes. And this book does not disappoint. Carly is a single mother working at a strip club to make ends meet when the club is sold to the Marchetti Family.
Gio is the eldest son of the Marchetti Family. It is his job/duty to take the strip club and make it profitable. Gio and Carly tangle from their first meeting. And the twists don’t stop. From jealousy to a stalker to dealing with “family business”, they will deal with it all. I absolutely loved this book! While it’s not as dark as some Mafia type books, this does have it’s dark moments. Don’t expect the usual from Angel Nyx. She’ll give you a twist you don’t see coming!”

Here’s the link for Black Tears on Amazon so you can go check it out yourself. Be sure to come back and let me know what you think in the comments section!

As I mentioned earlier Angel Nyx writes mostly paranormal shifter romance. The Nola Shifters Series contains 5 novels and a prequel novella. The first book was released and is called Wild Lillies Book 1 of the Nola Shifters Series. The blurb goes like this:

Lily Quinn Pick a mate or I’ll do it for you.” Unwilling to sacrifice her dreams of loving the man she commits her life to, Lily makes a drastic decision and disappeared into the night. For six years her life was untouched by her old pack, but all of that changed when he walked into Gathering Grounds, the coffee book shop she worked at. Declan Monroe He wasn’t looking for a mate. He’d lived a hard life, there was blood on his hands, no woman would be able to handle the darkness that tainted his soul. When his Alpha hires him to track down his missing daughter he thought finding her in New Orleans would be the hard part. He had no idea she would be the woman who could bring him to his knees.”

**Authors Note: Each book in the NOLA Shifters Series is a stand alone, they are interconnected. Each book ends with an HEA. Also, as the characters are shifters, there may be situations that wouldn’t normally arise in a romance novel. The pull of a mate is something that is intrinsically written into their DNA. It is not something that can be fought or controlled. When a shifter meets their mate, the attraction is immediate and intense. As such, they may find themselves doing something that they never expected, even something that goes completely against their own moral code.”

And while your there be sure to check out Angel Nyx’s Amazon page at:

Since the 27th of October in 2017 Angel Nyx has published 11 novels including the 5 novels of Nola Shifters Series and a Nola Shifters Series prequel novel, The Devils Heir, Whispers of Hope, Queen of Time, and Fire and Desire A 7 Days of Romance Short Story. Besides reading, writing and music Angel loves to game and is a mom too!

Her love for storytelling started at a young age when her mother used to read books to her. Thus beginning a love for not only reading stories but creating her very own. Angels obsession with details and finding mistakes in writing enabled her to start doing proofreading on the side for other Indie Authors as well. What a busy lady! Whew!

Angel loves New Orleans and visits frequently. She enjoys it so much that she based a whole book series there The Nola Series. These books definently capture that New Orleans feeling taking you right to Louisiana.

A busy street in New Orleans! I love the culture and people here and hope to someday be able to travel to NOLA! Mardi Gras calls my name!

An interesting fact about the Black Tears A Marchetti Family novel is this little Did You Know hidden in the contents menu of the kindle copy:

“The nursery rhyme that can be found on page 195 is an original nursery rhyme that I wrote for my children when they were babies and sang it to them every night. Now that I have become a grandmother, I sing it to my grandchildren whenever I get the chance.”

How cool is that?!? I loved my nursery rhymes and it would have been so cool to have had one designed just for me by my mother! I think that is just so neat! What a beautiful memory to have! I’m glad she shared that with the readers! She is such a nice person to speak with. I absolutely adore her funny videos and her interaction with her fans!She always answers comments and emails from readers over on her Facebook page at
