What does it mean when your enemies never see you coming?
They called him The Holy Ghost for a reason.
As the Benetti Crime Family’s number one hitman, Phoenix Fiore was unseen and undetectable to his prey. In six short years, he’d gone from a young man on the path to a new life to the most prolific killer in Benetti Family history. He hadn’t planned on climbing the deadly ladder at such a rapid pace, but what else did a man do when he no longer possessed a soul?
In love with the same woman since he was seven-years-old, when Phoenix loses Francesca, he loses everything that has ever mattered in his life. With no choice but to move on, he spends every waking moment making the Benetti Family proud. As the most ruthless Mafia family in the western hemisphere, Phoenix Fiore is one of their most prized assets, and everyone knows it.
Life was nothing if not unpredictable, and Francesca Mancini learned that lesson the hard way. Still, even after the accident that claimed both her parents’ lives, she still had a lot to be thankful for. As only the young naively did, her life’s plan had been solid. She had planned on graduating from college and marrying the man of her dreams, but what’s that about best-laid plans?
In love with the same man since she was seven-years-old, when Francesca catches Phoenix in a lie too big to ignore, she leaves him and everything that she’s ever known, and doesn’t look back. Determined to move on, she spends every waking moment carving out a new life for herself. Only it’s not that easy when Francesca Mancini is more than just a simple waitress, but nobody knows it yet.
