Dante Marcellos life has been a carefully planned event as an heir to a Cosa Nostra throne. For as long as he can remember, hes had one goal in mind, and thats becoming the Don. With his father ready to step down, its Dantes turn to step up. But without a wife at his side, his seat as the boss is on shaky ground. Until she shows up with an offer he wants to refuse, but cant.
With her, hes got everything to gain.
Catrina Danzi is known for her angel face and a predators grace. For over a decade, shes worked as a successful Queen Pin dealing with a repertoire of clientele who cant afford a scandal. Thats why they ask for her and why they call her Queen. Marrying Dante Marcello means giving up the business and status she loves in order to gain protection she cant provide on her own, but she no longer has a choice.
Without him, shes got everything to lose.
The rules for their arrangement are simple: no intimacy, no emotions. Dante isnt looking for love and Catrina doesnt need attachments. In the end, life has a way of breaking down walls when you least expect it to, and once love gets in, theres no bleeding it out. Together, they make a formidable team the Commission wont be able to ignore. Catrinas secret of what shes kept safe will put the entire Marcello family in danger when it finally catches up with her. The Marcellos have yet to be beaten, and theyre not about to start bowing down now.
Even the most beautiful things are a little filthy.
