If you are looking for a romance that has the drama and flare of The Sopranos, then you have found the right book. 


Lessa Noelle grew up never knowing she was the illegitimate daughter of a mafia king pin. After his murder, she finds herself a surprise heiress immersed in the dangerous world of organized crime with only the guidance of Marco Santo her father’s second in command to help her.

Marco searches for her father’s killer and tries to keep the realities of his life from touching her. An uneasy attraction blossoms between the two. An already dangerous situation turns volatile when a killer turns his attention to Lessa.
Well, HELLLLLLOOOOOO Marco Santo!!  That is how you will feel about this mysterious, dangerous, very sexy man who walks into Lessa's life, announcing that she is a mafia princess.  His job is to get her to her "father's" funeral and introduce her to her "family", who don't welcome her with open arms.  Marco has a few secrets of his own, which Lessa begins to discover, while also falling for his charms.
We are definitely kept in suspense, and I honestly had no idea who the killer was until the very end.  The romance between Marco and Lessa is slow forming, but when these two finally get together, it's exactly what you are hoping for from the moment Marco walks into her life.  Angie Derek gives us a very exciting, on the seat of your pants thriller with MAFIA SECRET. Takes you right into the action from the start and never lets you go.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a different kind of romance, one with a little suspense, a lot of sparks and a really smokin hot hero with a dangerous side.
