Teague O’Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family’s name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a “business” alliance, Teague’s ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancée, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and he decides he will do everything in his power to protect her.
Everyone knows the O’Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn’t aware of just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. The closer they get, though, the more trouble they’re in. Because Callie’s keeping a dark secret—and what Teague doesn’t know could get him killed.
Set in Boston this novel is concerned with the machinations of the three rival mafia families in the city. Callista Sheridan is nicknamed the mafia princess and her father has ordered her to marry the son of a rival family, to form an alliance between them, When Callie goes in disguise to try to meet her husband to be for the first time she finds him physically and sexually abusing a woman. He assumes she’s been sent up to entertain him next and starts to throttle her. Callie resists and ends up shooting and killing him. She escapes but is severely shaken by the experience.
Teague O’Malley is the son of the ruler of the third mafia family in the area. He is ordered to marry Callie now the other deal for her is broken. Their fathers order them both to attend a party where their engagement is announced and they actually get to meet. The attraction between them is instant and hot. The secrets they are both harbouring are dark and life threatening should they be revealed. As war breaks out between the mafia rivals do they stand any chance of achieving a HEA?
With mafia rivals, mobsters, guns, threats and danger this is not a sweet romance! The three families are introduced, warts and all, and their need for vengeance is paramount throughout. It is a fast paced, high action romance in the dangerous underworld of the mafia, mobsters and people determined to fight to keep their family safe. It is also the first novel in a new series which should be intriguing as these will involve other family members.
