They say your first kiss should be earned.
Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say your heart only beats for one man.
Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.
I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.
Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

Have you ever read a book that was so so good that when you get to the last word on the last page, you know you need to write the review and you think to yourself, where do I begin!
Francesca Rossi was beautiful, sheltered and protected from the outside world like all good Italian girls. She thought she had her life all mapped out for her. Marry a good Italian boy, have babies and live happily ever after. But that was all about to change…
Wolfe Keaton. Wolf by name, wolf by nature. Commanding, gorgeous and utterly ruthless. I love him already! From an early age, he has been striving for one thing. The downfall of one man. The hatred for this man was buried so deep inside of him that he will use any means to make it happen. Nothing will stand in his way…His name, Arthur Rossi.
He stole her kiss! A kiss that was meant for the man of her dreams, the man she would spend the rest of her life with. Was he sorry? Hell no! It’s all part of his intricate plan to make her his and make those close to her suffer. She was but a pawn in his sadistic game of revenge.
Francesca’s fate was sealed, there was no escape. Her feelings for Wolfe Keaton was of hatred and lust. Yes! Her body betrayed her. Her feelings for him grew as time went on and she could feel his coldness and nonchalant attitude towards her start to thaw. There was so much standing in their way. So many enemies and misunderstandings. Would they get their happy ever after?
I tried to word this review without giving too much away. But I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface. How could I possibly do this book justice which by the way, had kept me up all night! The story flowed well in all its intricacies. The feelings, the depths of these characters were splayed out on every page. They may not have known it from the start, but they were a perfect match for each other. She had attitude and sass, she wasn’t that meek Italian girl that everyone took her for. Wolfe may have been cold on the outside but you knew that the love of a good woman would change that. It was circumstance that had made him the way he was.
Last but not least a note for the author. I am a big fan of your work and your work just keeps on getting better. Your style of writing and storytelling astounds me every time and leaves me in awe of your talent. This is one book that will stay with me for a very long time. Thank you for sharing. Bravo, congratulations!
