It’s funny how you can go through life thinking everything is normal when you’re anything but. The world of an Italian American is different than that of any other culture, especially here in New York City.
Our traditions are strange, our accents odd, and food comes second only to family. My ancestors came over from Sicily at the turn of the century. No money, living in filth, and begging for scraps. A life of crime doesn’t appear as bad as it is when your family is dying in the street.
My name is Giacomina Gambino and I’m a mafia princess.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn with a silver spoon in my mouth and a gun in my purse. Nothing or no one can mess with me, and if it happens — Daddy takes care of it.
Now I’m twenty-eight, ready to settle down, and I have to choose a husband. Someone my parents approve of and someone who will stay out of my way. I might have to get married, but nobody said anything about it being for love.
If you love Rachel Van Dyken and JM Dathower you’re going to be obsessed with Angela Agnello’s debut series, Conquering the Throne.

Goodreads Review – “Must read! I absolutely loved this book.”
Spunk~n~Sassy – “I’ll start by saying that this book was absolutely divine.”
Angela Agnello was born and raised in Queens, NY. She grew up in an Italian American household filled with love and happiness. The woman in her life taught her how to be strong, independent, and smart. She may have gotten hit with the wooden spoon, but she also learned how to cook sauce with it. Her mafia tales are fiction, but she likes to think there is a Jack out there somewhere ruling the men in her life. Prima la famiglia.
