From New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle comes DIRTY SOULS the much-anticipated, nail-biting conclusion to Black Hearts…

Violet McQueen has always been a sensitive soul. Troubled and misunderstood, she never realized her place in the world, nor her true potential…until she met Vicente Bernal.

From birth, Vicente Bernal has always known his place in the world – he’s been groomed to be a ruthless king. Yet for a man whose soul has become morally bankrupt, it’s only through Violet he’s realizing the worth of someone’s heart.

But at what cost?

With a deadly game set in motion taking them from the stark deserts of California to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Violet and Vicente’s forbidden relationship will be put to the test. Boundaries will be pushed, lines will be crossed and souls will get very, very dirty.

Because how do you choose between blood and love when both might get you killed?

A forbidden love that few would understand. Violet McQueen knows that Vicente Bernal is the man that makes her feel to the depths of her soul. The one that she shares her secrets with. The light that draws her like a moth to a flame. Now Violet and Vicente have embarked upon a journey that will unveil more secrets than either could have imagined.

Vicente has told Violet that his comes from a cartel family. Although the extent to the depth of his family turmoil has never made it to the surface. While Vicente is unraveling all of the things the McQueen’s have kept hidden for many reasons. Now – Vicente is learning the hard way that even he doesn’t know his father Javier like he thought.

Violet and Vicente find themselves in a quest for revenge that is darker than either could have imagined. A small fissure in an overflowing damn that broke within Javier years ago. Now danger surrounds the two with every turn. Their only hope is to outsmart the leader of one of the most vicious cartels in Mexico. Don’t count the McQueen’s out in this quest to save Violet. A mother scorned is a dangerous thing. One that the Bernal family will face sooner rather than later.

Javier….Javier….Javier…..I never get enough of his wicked ways. Dirty Souls is a thrill ride full of memories and torture. A journey that Vicente and Violet must take to have closure on the past tension between their families. Now – this is a true representation of the dangerous side of Javier. A ruthless character that once again rears his devious side.

Having the McQueen and Bernal families all wrapped up in this ‘love story’ was a thrill for any fan of The Artists Trilogy. The adrenaline kicks up a notch when you learn what part Javier plays in Vicente and Violet’s relationship. One built upon lies and lust. Who will protect Violet when all of the dust settles? Hang on tight for this ride into the dangerous world of the cartel, where the motto is every man for himself!!



Discover The Legacy…..A New Generation

The First Book In The Sins Duet



For Vicente Bernal, truth is all he’s known. The son of an infamous drug lord, Vicente was born to help run the family business, which means he’s been raised on a throne of sordid pasts and dirty laundry, violence and pride. But when Vicente stumbles across someone he’s not supposed to know about – a woman from his father’s checkered past – he sets out to California to find her behind his father’s back.

What Vicente doesn’t expect to find in San Francisco is Violet McQueen, the woman’s twenty-year old daughter. Beautiful and edgy with a vulnerability he can’t resist, Violet tempts Vicente from afar and though he promised himself he’d stay away from her, curiosity and lust are powerful forces. Besides, Vicente has always gotten everything he wants – why shouldn’t he have Violet too?

Soon his wants turn into an obsession, one that sweeps Violet into his games as they fall madly, deeply in love with each other, the type of first love that can drive a person mad.

But it’s a love with tragic consequences.

Both the truth – and the lies – not only threaten to tear them apart, but threaten their very lives.

Someone has to pay for the sins of the fathers.

And they’ll be paying the price with their souls.
