Dangerous and feared.
Those words describe my future husband. Who just so happens to also be my ex-boyfriend.
It’s complicated. Two years ago, he broke my heart when he left me to do his father’s bidding. After months of crying, I finally accepted he was gone and wasn’t going to look back. That maybe he’d never loved me at all. I never wanted to see Luca again.
Now a cruel twist of fate has signed me over to him in a heartless deal. I’m his. He thinks he did me a favor, but I feel like I’ve been given a death sentence. He doesn’t want to get married because he still loves me. No, he did it for money. More power.
I’m going to be a mafia wife. And there’s only one way out of it. Death.
But as it turns out, someone else doesn’t want me to marry the ruthless Luca Bianchi. And if he has his way, I’ll see that early grave.

Lucas was raised in a mafia family and it is the only life he has ever known. He knows what is expected of him and that nothing can distract him from his duty and responsibility and that includes the woman who has claimed his heart as it must always be loyalty before love.
Since she was a child Haven knew that Lucas was her destiny even if he didn’t realize it until they were in college. They are now together, and she didn’t think anything could come between them until he leaves her devasted with no further contact.
A few years later he is back and ready to claim Haven and the life he has been planning for them. She doesn’t want a repeat of the pain that she has tried so hard to leave in her past. She is not about to just forgive and forget and there is no way she will let him back into her heart until she knows exactly why he left and what he has been doing. Let the battle begin!
So many twists, so many secrets to be revealed, so much suspense and so much heat. There is no doubt that Haven and Lucas belong together but their journey is far from easy.
