They're not star-crossed—they're impossible.
Calisto Donati is what every made man in the mafia should be, and then he broke his oath for a woman that wasn't his.
Their secrets and games are deadly, but as hard as he tries to stay away from his boss's new bride, the universe seems determined to keep bringing them back together. Trapped in a marriage that leaves Emma heartbroken and lonely, he's often the only one left to pick up the pieces of what remains of a once vibrant woman.
Maybe his self-control would be better if he didn't know the monster his uncle truly is—after all, Affonso Donati was the first hard lesson about life that Calisto had to learn.
These are the secrets of the Donati Bloodlines—where everything, even love, is a lie.
But how far will they go to keep it that way?
