A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: Esther E. Schmidt
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 18, 2020


Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.



An arranged marriage.
A moment washed in blood.
A heart fueled by vengeance.
It all consumes the life of one Unruly Protector.

Clemente accepted an arranged marriage as part of a deal to keep his sister safe. Though, he never expected the woman he was now connected with for life creating a weakness he never saw coming.

Caterina grew up in the mafia world and fully embraced her fate; choosing to become an asset for her future husband instead of a wilting flower. But she wasn’t expecting the ruthless head of the underworld of California to yank on her every nerve.

Being fearless in the mafia world will blindside and get you killed, while being perceptively ruthless keeps you alive and will allow you to see your enemies coming. When emotions are twisted and past enemies rise to attack, it’s revenge that feeds the blood of the innocent and might risk the lives of everyone involved.

Unruly Protector by Esther E. Schmidt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading this in Unruly Defender,

Gracy (his half-sister) to Clemente: “How’s your fiancée doing?”
There isn’t a twitch on his face as he instantly replies, “Still breathing and plotting ways to kill me, the usual.”

I was on pins and needles waiting for Clemente’s story. I knew it would be a mafia/arranged marriage and probably predictable, but maybe not. And it wasn’t! What an exceptional twist this was. Catarina was a fresh of breath air for this trope and I loved it! Their connection was instant and written so well that their love for one another after such a short period of time was undeniable and quite realistic. She was his perfect match in every way and I just devoured their story!
