An Interpol agent playing a dangerous game. A Mafia princess desperate to escape. A man determined to exact retribution...
Nick Clarkston, a young Interpol agent, threatens to undo the fragile peace between the Lucchesi and Andretti families when he tries to take down the Mafia don father who abandoned him. He allies with his father's sworn enemy, a mobster both devious and ruthless. The mobster's alluring daughter helps Nick negotiate the murky criminal underworld, but he soon learns she's using him. Trapped, and with nowhere to turn, Nick makes a tragic mistake that plunges him further into danger.
Delfina Andretti appears to be the typical Mafia princess--but this princess wants out. Delfina dreams of being a fashion designer, and hooking up with Nick is her ticket out of an arranged marriage. Her feelings for Nick are genuine, but he's leery of her. Even worse, his heedless drive for justice threatens to get them both killed and to put everyone Delfina loves behind bars--unless she and Nick can forge a new future for their warring families.
"Leave me alone," Delfina tossed over her shoulder, turning her head to give her father one last glare. She sailed off the last step into the foyer and plowed into a hard body. A hard body that smelled delicious, sexy. Two strong hands gripped her arms to keep her from falling.
She gawked at a face that was eerily familiar. The young man standing in front of her wasn't Enrico Lucchesi--his wavy, tousled hair was a rich chestnut, not onyx, and his eyes were mossy green, not chocolate. But the strong blade of his nose, the high prominent cheekbones, and the full, generous mouth were all Lucchesi. "Who are you?" she blurted.
"Nick Clarkston," he answered, his accent British, upper crust. "Who are you?"
"My daughter, Delfina," her father said from behind her. His hands came to rest on her shoulders, and Nick abruptly released her and stepped away.
Nick glanced from her to her father. "Is everything all right?" he asked.
"Not really," she said. Could he be...? But if he was, what was he doing here, in her father's house?
