All of us live with a demon inside. Some days, you control the demon. And other days, it controls you. But the one thing that never changes is that it’s always hungry. It feeds on lust and longing. You may slumber, but the demon never sleeps. It tempts you into crossing every line you’ve ever drawn, and all the while, it tests you, haunts you. And once it has turned your loved ones into enemies, the demon has consumed you whole. ~Jordana
Jordana Albanese grew up in a world that spun with lies, secrets, and multiple sins. Her father, Gene—reigning king in the Mafia for the last few decades—never protected her from his underworld dealings (La Coso Nostra). She learned at a young age that in order to survive in her world, one must be dominant. She wore the shield of control on a daily basis, but all she wanted was to slip it off and discard it like yesterday’s laundry. Except, letting it go would mean letting it all go. And she didn’t want that. She learned of a compromise—to let go of control in private, behind a closed door, with the orders of him. Not simply to be controlled, but to be dominated. The only problem was that her ambitions cut bone deep. Deeper than her Dom’s belt on her ass. Deeper than the marks from the restraints he used to subdue and pleasure her. The enduring marks were not visible to the human eye. They were profound wounds—scars—on her soul that only she could feel.
And that’s where she found the perfect balance in the two. Her submissive tendencies served her well in the bedroom. However, in public, she was very much as dominant as her male counterparts.

Jenny's Review

The Power Of A Woman is a modern day, mafia version of Romeo and Juliet with a mix of BDSM. Jordana and Stefan are from two mafia families, who are at odds with each other. Despite the divide between the two families, behind close doors, and Stefan is Jordana's Dom, and the only time she lets go of her strong-will is in the bedroom with Stefan. When Jordana's brother gets in trouble, putting the two families at the brink of war, she takes it upon herself to try to get her brother out of harms way, which doesn't goes as plan. 
What happens next is a read of betrayal, fight, dominance, power, and love. Gina Whitney and Leddy Harper story is about Jordana finding her strength is a male dominated world, learning to be strong and powerful but also learning how to trust. My only problem with the story was at times I  felt that Jordana was too hard on herself. In the face of some of the things that she went through, she had to be vulnerable and when she would have those kinds of emotions, she thought that she was weak, which to me was not the case at all. 

The Power Of A Woman is the first time that I read a book that was co-author. The story flowed effortlessly. There was never a time reading that I felt that there was two people writing. The scenes between Jordana and Stefan were H-O-T.  And the twist and turns throughout the story had me wondering what was next. The Power Of A Woman had the right amount of suspense and erotica. If you are a fan of either mafia romance, BDSM, suspense or all three, you'll enjoy The Power Of A  Woman.

Leddy Harper
Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.
She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.
She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
