Duty. Loyalty. Family.
Neal Sanders is the heir to one of the most powerful Mafia Families in New York City. It’s time for him to take his rightful place as Don. However Neal didn’t expect there to be certain conditions… an arranged marriage. He never intended to get married and lives his life serving his Family and La Cosa Nostra.
Amelia Hudgens is a nursing student with a plan for her life. Graduate, get married, have children. It’s what every girl wants… right? Meeting a handsome stranger changes everything for her. She got more than she bargained for as she falls deeper and deeper into the dark edges of the New York Underworld.
Neal has always done what is expected of him, until he met her. He didn’t expect Amelia to crack open the very foundation his life is built upon. She didn’t expect the future Don to steal her heart and make her question the plan set out for her.
Will she be able to handle the New York Underworld?
Will he be able to resist her and stay true to his contract?
Or will their love be the downfall of all they’ve ever known?

Fidgeting in my seat, I cross my legs and reach for my glass. Realizing it’s empty, I take Liz’s and down that as well, because I feel like I want to go to him and climb into his lap so that he can hold me. And crazy thoughts like those should be drowned in alcohol.
“So, what now?” I ask, not being able to stand the silence. “What happens now?”
“Now, Amelia, you come with me. I will take you to my place, where you can settle and spend the night. Liz will stay at Killian’s, and Olivia is safe at Hunter’s. Tomorrow we’ll start sorting everything out, so you can return to your own apartment.”
“If you think I’m leaving with you, you’re insane.” I glare at Neal, challenging him to tell me differently.
“I assure you, there’s no safer place for you at the moment.” His intense gaze doesn’t leave mine for a second. I might not understand what just happened. But what I do know is that the man in front of me is more dangerous than the people who attacked us. And I’m okay because of him. Which makes me want to go with him. But I need something from him before I agree.
“Tell me who you are first.” Looking him straight in the eye, I make it apparent that I’m not going anywhere without that little tidbit of information.
Holding his head high, he releases a breath.
“I’m Neal Sanders.” His eyes are gleaming as he adds, “Underboss of the Castellano Crime Family.”
