As the Pagano Brothers' head of security and enforcement, Angelo Corti has done Nick's darkest work for years. Intimidation, torture, assassination—he's done it all without a qualm. There is nothing he won't do for his don.
Angie's built a good life for himself on his own, devoted entirely to the Pagano Brothers, and it's all he wants. He has no interest in a romantic relationship; there's no chance he'll ever fall in love. He's already taken his vows: to Nick and the Pagano Brothers family. There is room for nothing else in his life.
Nick's plans for his legacy will rock their whole world, but Angie is at Nick's side, ready to render his justice and clear the path for his don to get what he wants, no matter what.
Giada Sacco has been cleaning up after her brother, don of the Sacco Family, for years, running the family from the shadows while his arrogance and cruelty threaten to destroy it. But Giada is tired of doing the work while her unworthy brother takes the glory.
Once upon a time, Giada dreamed of rescue and romance, but fairy tales are for little girls. She knows she needs to take what she wants, and she won't let anything get in her way. What she wants is to change the world.
When Nick and Giada ally to shake La Cosa Nostra down to its foundation, Angie and Giada are thrust together. It means nothing. It's just part of the plan, a simple distraction.
It wasn't supposed to be real. But even the best-laid plans go awry.
They've made an alliance to change their world. Now nothing will ever be the same.
