*A Dark Mafia Romance in the War of Roses Universe*
After a decade spent claiming a throne for himself in the seething violence of the criminal underbelly, all Donatello Vanici craves now is peace.
Only a union forged between his heir and the most powerful mafiya family in existence could ever be strong enough to end the bloodshed for good, but the Stepanov head resists his overtures at every turn...
Until tragedy strikes, and forces Donatello’s hand.
Haunted by a past that dogs her every thought, Willow Stepanov will do anything for the man who adopted her—until a chance encounter with the enemy lands her right in the middle of a dangerous power struggle and a war that grows more violent and vicious each day.
But it's not just her future her captor holds hostage.
He is a man with nothing left to lose—while she may just lose everything.
Her life, her family, and her heart…
While this story didn't grab my attention as quickly as the War of Roses did, it was still an interesting story and I loved seeing Mischa and Ellen once more. It was about half way through the story that I became more interested and captivated by the story. It seems someone wants there to be a war and blood is spilled. It pushes both Mischa and Don to take drastic action. I have to admit, Willow still seems naive in her actions. Rather than speaking to Mischa, she takes risks and places herself in danger. By the end, it seems that Don will live up to his title. I look forward to seeing just how far Don will take this and who will survive this upcoming war.
