From USA Today best-selling author, Autumn Archer, comes an Age Gap, Forced Proximity Dark Mafia Romance where an indecent proposal leads to blood tainted love.

Once upon a time he set me free. This time it won't be that simple.

I can't stop wondering why the cartel heir with mafia blood running cold in his veins saved me all those weeks ago. The virginal misfit who was kidnapped and gifted to a villainous kingpin.

But he did.

And I was wrong to think he was my hero.

I never expected to meet Tomás Souza again. Or that I'd be covered in his father's blood. However, fate has brought me face to face with a vengeful monster who's blinded by wrath.

Now, I'm his captive while he claims a merciless throne—and my innocence.

Except he underestimates me. They all do.

No matter the bond we share, our forced agreement must end, especially when the newly crowned king has a heart-shattering secret.

Available exclusively on Amazon.


UPDATE!! Have you seen the gorgeous new covers and fitting titles for the Jungle Oasis trilogy?

I made the the decision to rebrand them when I started to write Carina's dark mafia romance. It quickly escalated and a whole new character line up was created. However, they all belong in the same world––in the Hostile Kingdom world. And now, this trilogy sits within it, proud of place with threads of cartel vengeance. Jungle Oasis has paved the way for a new organised crime family with cartel lawlessness and mafia blood.

Hostile Heir is available now...however, if you want to dive into the Hostile Kingdom world, start with Vengeful Captor to meet all the characters in order!


Jungle Oasis is follows the same couple with a happy ending in the final book. It’s a rollercoaster romance with a twist of darkness.

Vengeful Captor

I was stolen by a man who I thought was my savior. Now I’m his prisoner in the Amazon jungle.

El Fantasma isn't just roaming in the rainforest; he's built an invitation-only, exclusive resort that’s not the oasis it appears to be. It’s a hideout where he plots the cruelest revenge for the narcos who ruined his life. Once you've witnessed the cartel criminal in his wild territory and unearthed his true identity, you'll never leave alive.

When a tropical storm leads to a feverish injury, I shoot a flare through the trees. But I never expected a man like him would come to my rescue. In my delirium, I think my captor is my hero, but in the humid shade of swaying palms, he’s a villainous bully.

I've met the ghost of a man who commands privacy. And his sights are set on me. He’s convinced the world that my corpse was carried away in the river. So no one’s coming to save me. Which means I’ll never get home to my family in Scotland––unless I save myself.

The world may think I’m already dead, but if I try to escape him, I really will be.

Except now I have nothing to lose.

TW: this trilogy contains kidnapping, stalker vibes, violence, dark themes of romance, human trafficking and references to suicide.


Welcome back to the Jungle Oasis... I can't believe FALL has finally landed! This series has gripped me by the heart from the very second these two met in the jungle. The undeniable attraction and danger is off the charts. I've enjoyed letting their story they would want it to.

I travelled deep into the rainforest with Iris and Dante and endured the rollercoaster of emotions with them... this is my favourite series to date. Can I say that without my other dark and broody leading men taking offence?

If you've already met el Fantasma, then you know why...

"What a fabulous job Autumn has done creating this new world full of steam , intrigue, emotion and a strong heroine who is not afraid to speak her mind , and Dante who is all kinds of swoony." Marni Ortiz

"All I can say is OMG!!! I thought the last book was amazing but this one is even better!!! Talk about red hot sizzling romance!!!!" Michelle Web

"This story just blows me away. I am so hooked on Iris and Dante's story. The suspense , and angst has me sitting on the edge of my seat." Angela

"Oh man this is intense. Dante has a vendetta that has taken over who and what he is. Iris is so confused as to whether she hates or loves him. I have never read a book like this before. It is so emotional and deeply moving." Judy

The final book in the Jungle Oasis Trilogy is called Flame... and it will set your soul on fire! x x
