Neal Sanders is on the precipice of getting all he’s ever wanted in life, becoming Don and obtaining his seat on the Commission. However, it all seems to come at a cost. His love for Amelia, an outsider, is stronger than he ever imagined possible but still he must marry Arica Bastone, the princess of Cosa Nostra.
With her heart in shreds, Amelia embraces her role as a newly appointed associate of the Castellano Family. Helping Neal in every way she can will have to be enough. However, Romero has other plans for her. She is willing to face the shark-infested waters of Cosa Nostra to help Neal obtain his title and in doing so, her freedom from her contract. But is that what she truly wants?
Suspecting that Romero has been laying the chessboard in his favor all these years, Neal is determined to take his birthright and his future. Amelia has a chance to live a life free of all the darkness that threatens to drown her every chance it gets. Will she take it or will she give everything to the man who owns her heart?
Duty. Loyalty. Family.
Neal Sanders is the heir to one of the most powerful Mafia Families in New York City. It’s time for him to take his rightful place as Don. However Neal didn’t expect there to be certain conditions… an arranged marriage. He never intended to get married and lives his life serving his Family and La Cosa Nostra.
Amelia Hudgens is a nursing student with a plan for her life. Graduate, get married, have children. It’s what every girl wants… right? Meeting a handsome stranger changes everything for her. She got more than she bargained for as she falls deeper and deeper into the dark edges of the New York Underworld.
Neal has always done what is expected of him, until he met her. He didn’t expect Amelia to crack open the very foundation his life is built upon. She didn’t expect the future Don to steal her heart and make her question the plan set out for her.
Will she be able to handle the New York Underworld?
Will he be able to resist her and stay true to his contract?
Or will their love be the downfall of all they’ve ever known?
