When you’re “connected” in the Windy City, there are no guarantees.
I grew up in the Family, navigating the labyrinth of courtesies in the layer cake of the Chicago Mob. When the capo says jump, you ask “how high?” They tell you to off somebody…
You get the job done or you don’t come home.
Play your cards right, and you’ll be a Made Man. Set for life—a violent life, but set. Play them wrong… well, the pay is great, but the retirement plan stinks.
Enter one Isabella Lastra. Beautiful but sad, thoughtful but spirited. One look, and I know…
I have to make her mine.
I’m supposed to protect Isabella, not fall in love with her. The Loggia Family is out for blood, and Isabella is in their crosshairs. I’ll do anything to protect the woman I love. Anything.
Even if I have to steal her.
Can love survive in this blood-soaked, honor-bound world? Or will my quest to be a Made Man cost me the one woman I can’t live without? One thing’s for sure, if they want to take Isabella from me…
They’re going to have to kill me first.
