I'm a doctor. Mobster. Killer.
My hands are covered in filth. I don't have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.

I distance myself ... always remaining obscure, composed, restrained.
Careful to never allow my eyes to linger too long.
Careful to hide my interest.
Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface.

I do it for her--suffer in silence--because it's what is best for the woman I love.
And she has no idea.

She'll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he'll earn the right to claim her.
Make her his wife.
Kill. Me. Slowly.

I'm running out of time. Only a month remains before she's beyond my reach forever.
I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm.
I want to give her the kind of nights she will still feel between her legs the next morning.
I want us to share the kind of passion that forms on our skin and drips down to saturate the sheets.
Between the sweat and the moans and the messy hair, I want her to know how hard she's been loved.

To have her is to taint her.
I should stay away. But I won't. I can't.
I'm a selfish bastard.
A selfish bastard in love.

***Intended for readers ages 18+ due to sexual content, adult situations, and language.


Endurance is a STANDALONE novel. It is the first spinoff of The Fellowship world introduced in The Sin Trilogy: A Necessary Sin, The Next Sin, One Last Sin.

Although Endurance may be read as a standalone, I recommend reading The Sin Trilogy first if you wish to have a full understanding of The Fellowship world. The choice is yours. (An ebook bundle set with all three books is available at a discounted price.)

Each Sin Series Standalone Novel will feature a different couple.

No cliffhanger.

ARIANNA’s Review

Georgia Cates delivers another great, dark-ish, intriguing mafia tale in “The Sin Trilogy” series. Unlike the previous installment in the series, “Endurance” focuses on another characters, Jamie and Ellison, whom we previously met before and unlike the previous three installments, it can be read as a standalone. “Endurance” was intriguing for the most part, romantic, passionate, fast pace and overall I enjoyed it.

Ellison moved to Scotland from America to be with her beloved sister after their father passed away. She knows with whom her sister chose to marry a year ago and she knows what the Fellowship is, the Scottish mafia. Even if her brother in low is the second in command to The Fellowship she’s happy for her sister because she knows she’s loved and respected by everyone in the organization. Ever since she decided to live in Scotland near her sister, Ellison decided to be part of the Scottish Mafia too. So, soon, Ellie’s brother in low will choose a husband for her, a mate who will have to love and protect her no matter what. But Ellie already find herself a husband. The only problem is he doesn’t seem to return her feelings or even notice her, obviously not to claim her either.

Jamie was raised in The Fellowship. He was raised as a killer, later becoming a doctor who serves the organization being loyal and respected. Jamie wants Ellison. He wants her as his best friend, as his future wife, as his mate, but he believes he can’t have her. Jamie knows the organization has many enemies and believes he can’t fully protect the woman he loves with all his heart, so he’s ready to sacrifice his happiness, their happiness, only for Ellison to be save. Will Jamie be able to give up Ellison or he will realize that he’s the perfect man for her, the only man who can protect her?

I really enjoyed this forth installment. It was filled with action, suspense and steam and I found it to be pretty great despite the fact I expected a little more. Personally, I would have preferred the story line to be a little different. The two main characters’ background were well developed which I enjoyed and their portrayal was pretty well done.

Both Jamie and Ellison were interesting, engaging character I liked from the very beginning. Ellie was a strong heroine and the perfect match for Jamie in every way. Our hero was also pretty great. He was sweet, caring, protective and at times a very endearing alpha-male. loved the connection and the chemistry between these two characters. The loyalty and devotion between them were really great and heartwarming and I love their honesty.

Overall, this was a great addition to the series. If you are looking for a mafia book filled with action, suspense and just a little bit of angst and drama, then this is the perfect book for you.
