Liliana Scuderi has been in love with Romero from the moment she first saw him. After her sisters were married off for tactical reasons, she hopes she might be allowed to choose a husband for herself, but when her father promises her to a man more than twice her age that hope is crushed. No begging can make him change his mind.
Romero has always ignored Lily’s flirting. Her age and status made her off-limits but even someone as dutiful as him has only so much control. Wanting her when she’s supposed to marry another man could mean war between New York and the Chicago Outfit, and Romero has always put the Famiglia first. Lily suspects her sisters and Romero would risk everything for her, but is her happiness worth that much? Is love worth a war between the New York Famiglia and the Chicago Outfit?

Temptation is forbidden in their world
Liliana Scudari had seen it all. Watched both her sisters get married to men whom they didn't want, ruthlessness of the mafia world but all that hate and destruction young Liliana had already given up her heart to a soldier cause when the filth of the mafia world was swallowing her alive, Lily had chosen her safe haven by the time she was 15, but now grown up and fast forward 3 years that crush turned into a full flesh temptation. Romero was a soldier, a fighter but nothing more. He'd sworn his life to the Famiglia and he'd only leave dead. She was a child nothing more but when the harmless flirting was getting out of hand, Romero put his foot down. What he wasn't expecting was that when he saw Liliana Scudari again now that she was a women, was to fall to her feet and give up his heart too. Romero was no more a solider of the Famiglia but Love. He'd fight for her even if that meant waging war between the Outfit and Famiglia.
But Mafia girls and soldiers aren't aloud to be together. Will this solider follow his heart or will he remember his oath. It's a battle which might not end and the guns been loaded it's time to cross enemy lines, whether it's goodbye forever cause broken hearts never truly mend
