Claudius: My story started out with a guy who liked a girl. She looked like an angel to him. I was the guy, Ava the angel. But . . . my life turned into this world where I got married to her twin sister and Ava hated me. Then I got caught in a game with the devil I didn't want to play. My enemies used my weaknesses against me, and killed my wife. Ava could have died too, so I stayed away.
The universe, however, had other ideas and threw her right back in my path. An angel like her didn't belong in the dark world of a Mafia boss. I know that, except, I'm selfish. I should leave her alone, but I can't.
Ava: Ten years ago, when I first met Claudius, I knew he was trouble. He'd made me love's fool and broke my heart in so many ways when he married my sister. So, what was I doing running back into the arms of a man I shouldn't be with?
Coincidence reunited us, but my heart did the rest. My heart stifled the voice inside that told me to run away. My heart made me selfish . . . I wanted him for myself. I knew I shouldn't be with him, but I couldn't leave him alone. That very thing could be my downfall.
