I am Alexandru, the chosen one. The ruler of the Romanian mafie Lupu clan.
Nina is my little sister’s best friend, and an outsider.
Will my duty to the family tear us apart?
I’ve been in love with Alex for as long as I can remember. I know he wants me, but he’s a self-contained perfectionist who will never break with tradition in his rigid world. The tradition in question: an arranged marriage with a mafie princess.
With my ambition, I must follow in my father's footsteps. I will be the perfect head of the family, the perfect husband and father, the perfect... man. In this dog-eat-dog mafie world, a single mistake could end in bloodshed.
After years of conflict with a rival family, my sister is contracted to marry and bring peace. But when the bride runs away and threatens the truce, I need to convince Nina to help me track down my wayward sister.
A replacement must be found and it makes sense that it should be me. The only problem is Nina. The little minx is everything I want in a woman and a wife. And it doesn't help that I can't stop fantasizing about her underneath me, either.
As our chemistry heats up, a soldier's irreparable mistake starts a war that can only be stopped with the ultimate sacrifice. Myself. Marrying your own kind is the primal rule that reigns over my world, but as I uncover secrets, I learn my perfect father may not have been so perfect after all...
