Summary

Top 100 international Amazon best seller

His world. His rules. My heart.

He’s a criminal with no conscience. The whisper of a name. A faceless stranger…a man content to dwell in the shadows of his underworld.

I’m the light to his dark: an investigative reporter intent on exposing dangerous men like him. We were worlds apart until I caught his attention. Now I’m his captive, kept at the whim of a devil with no kindness or morality.

I may be an innocent, but I have my secrets too. For years I’ve been fighting a private war with the illegal drugs trade, with the cartel responsible for murdering my brother. I’m closer to revenge than I’ve ever been until his duplicity tears my life apart.

Ours is a relationship borne of hate, but we can't deny the fire that rages between us.

Now I have two choices: Save his soul or lose myself to his darkness forever.

This is the first book in The Santiago Trilogy, a dark Mafia Romance. We meet Eve and Dante's . Eve is a criminal investigative reporter, while Dante, a criminal. Eve is innocent, strong, and smart. He is dark and intense . When the the two meet they share an instant attraction, and a sizzling hot chemistry. This book has action, suspense twists and turns,
This book ends on a cliff hanger and I need to listen to the next book NOW.

Amazing ride!

I received this audiobook at my request via promo code from The Flock and this is my honest voluntary review.

If you enjoyed Netflix 365 or Miss Bala, then this the series for you.

This is book one of Journalist Eve Miller and Columbian Cartel King Dante Santiagos story. I will take Cartels and hot climates in exotic compounds over Irish Mafia stories any day. Similar to the Carrera Cartel by Cora Kenborn (and thats great because these two do a team up crossover story which you should definitely check out too.) Dante is a sexy antihero and Eve, much like Elizabeth in Good Girls, is a woman who finds herself forced into the underbelly being eyed up by a beast. Kidnapped while purchasing a bottle of wine by a Cartel Boss whose threads interlink in her world far deeper than she knows. His own personal Angel, shes allowing him to use her body to protect her father. The other monsters dont play so nicely however and its not long before the Hell shes been dragged into declares war on them both.

Narration is fantastic.

Dante Santiago 🖤

Eve was in the wrong place at the wrong time. She captures Dante’s attention. She knows he’s a bad man, but feels attracted from the start. Dante is in the middle of a mission when he finds his one. She is an innocent but that won’t stop him. It’s a dark romance with an unlikely captor-captured romance while ending a war is ensued between brothers. It’s narrated by awesome voices and they bring this romance to life. Enjoyable listen!

Did Not Want it to End!!!! Need More!!!

Hearts of Darkness was one wild ride. I went in completely blind and was hooked from beginning to end. Eve gets kidnapped one night, which changes the course of her life drastically as she is thrust into a world she could have never truly imagined.

Dante was an interesting character; Very bossy and alpha and territorial at times, but caring and compassionate and giving at others. Though hardened by his life and his choices, there were times throughout the story that it was clear his morals weren't completely gone. I actually really liked him and I really liked him and Eve together. Their chemistry was off the charts hot!

Eve is Dante's light and he is her darkness, she is his angel and he is her devil. They are polar opposites in every sense, yet they give the other person exactly what they need. I did not want this story to end. I cannot wait to dive in to book two! I am so excited to have found a new author!

Sarah Puckett and JF Harding did a phenomenal job with the narration of this story as Eve and Dante. They really brought this story to life with their voices and their emotions. I would highly recommend them both and look forward to listening to more of their work in the future. #PinkFlamingoProductions #TheFlock

A fated collision course of a romance

Dante and Eve are destined. It’s really the only explanation. But it’s an explosive, and doomed relationship. He kidnaps her, after crossing paths with her and feeling that he needed to have her, only to let her go after a scorching kiss on a airplane tarmac. Neither of them can forget the other, and yet fate isn’t done with them yet. Once again, she finds herself in Dante’s clutches, but this time, there is no easy way out for them. They are polar opposites, but compliment each other perfectly. His darkness, his devil, to her lightness, her angel. They bring out the opposite in each other, which meshing them together perfectly, with scorching chemistry.

There is plenty of action, and much of it is quite brutal, actually - no one is spared in moving this plot forward. There is expected and unexpected betrayal, sacrifice and love, and the ending left me wanting, and excited for the story to continue. Overall it was a very engrossing story with a passionate love story at the heart of it.

The narration was excellent. I’m quite familiar with Sarah Puckett, and she is one of my favorite narrators, always doing an excellent job bringing characters to life seemingly effortlessly. And JF Harding did excellent as Dante (et al), as well, portraying a strong, but ultimately deep and damaged character. Looking forward to the rest of this series with them as the voices.

Dark, Intense & Smoking Hot! Fantastic🎧📚🎧

Wow this audiobook became my addiction, the story grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end. It is the kind of book once you start you need to finish because you have to know what happens next. It is my first book written by Catherine Wiltcher and it is definitely not my last, I enjoyed her writing style and the characters and storylines she created. Eve Miller and Dante Santiago first meet by chance well more like a being in the wrong place at the wrong wrong time, or maybe it was it the right place at the right time. Either way you look at it it was an impressionable meeting for both and not their last. She does not know who she is getting involved with, she does know the Santiagos are evil and she vowed to bring them down. Dante is like a ghost no one knows much about him. Dante sees Eve as an angel sent to him, Eve sees him as a monster, the devil, they are drawn to each other and the chemistry between them is undeniable and diabolically hot. This fabulously dark and delicious mafia romance is intense at times, in addition to the romance there is a power play going on in the Santiago world. The world building is phenomenal and the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, action, twists and turns, thrilling suspense as well as heartfelt and emotional moments, great sexy times too. Catherine Wiltcher, thank you for the great story and emotional rollercoaster ride, I hope the second book comes out on audio soon.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Sarah Puckett and JF Harding were the perfect cast to bring to these characters and their story to life. They did an awesome job portraying each character, taking each role and making it their own. Sara Puckett played the perfect Eve, captured her strength and feistiness naturally and with ease. JF Harding’s Dante was amazing too, a bad ass alpha to the tee. Both were great performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. They set the right tone for the story, captured all of the characters emotions, as well as their passion and projected it into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and their narration enhanced the story to another level of awesomeness. Thank you for the amazing listen, it is always a pleasure to listen to your work.

This is a great story from beginning until the end... I was captivated by every word the author wrote. Characters are unbelievably very well written. It’s hot, adventurous, and an emotional rollercoaster. Definitely worth the listen and I honestly recommend. I can’t wait to find out what will happen next in the next installment.

Dark Mafia Romance!

This was my first Catherine Wiltcher's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in The Santiago Trilogy, a dark Mafia Romance. Eve and Dante's story is well written, intense, suspenseful, fast-paced, and twisted. Dante, a criminal, is the perfect antihero, dark, and enigmatic. Eve is a criminal investigative reporter, and the daughter of the DEA agent who wants to take Dante down. She is innocent, strong, and smart. They are opposites attract, and they share an instant attraction, and a sizzling hot chemistry. The world building is intricate, and intriguing. I can't wait to listen to Hearts Divine, the next book in the Series. Sarah Puckett and JF Harding did an amazing job with the narration. They are perfect as Eve and Dante. #AudiobookObsession #PinkFlamingoProductions

Loved this new to me author

This is the first book I've read/listened to by Catherine Witcher. I will be looking to see what else she has written. This is NOT a standalone,, but the first of a trilogy. My heart never got a rest from all the intense action, the suspense of what would happen next, the twist and turns, and the way Dante and Eve hate/loved each other. My heart is still going ninety to nothing fifteen minutes after finishing the book. The cliffhanger has me hoping the next book will be here soon!

Sarah Puckett and TF Harding are excellent narrators! They had this book rolling like a movie in my head. So much emotion spilled into their performances. This was perfect.

Hearts of Darkness

Wow this book is everything! You do not want to miss this audio book. This book is dark, a little twisted, Mafia romance. Catherine Wiltcher is a new author to me. She is an amazing writer. I will definitely check out more of her books. Eve and Dante pasts have almost crossed several times. Eve works in journalism to try to expose the drug cartels. Dante was born into one of the leading drug cartel families. Everything changes when Eve snags the eye of Dante at the wrong time. This book ends in a unconventional HFN. More like hope to see you soon. Sarah Puckett and J.F. Harding did an absolutely fantastic job bringing these characters to life! I can't wait to listen to book 2!
