After their wild night running from Houston's criminal underworld, Ben and Aston are inseparable. Refusing to choose between the only family he's ever known--the Albanian mafia--or building a life with sweet, innocent Aston, Ben walks a careful line. He's not giving her up without a fight.
But the loose ends left unclipped from that first fateful night together are threatening to strangle the future Ben and Aston so desperately want.
Calvin, her sadistic stepbrother is gone, but even in death, he's found ways to torment her. He left behind a tangled web of schemes and lies that threaten to set Houston's underworld on fire.
When Aston discovers an unexpected consequence from her torrid night with Ben, she refuses to let Calvin and his terrible secrets hurt the people she loves. Whatever it takes, whatever the risk, she'll keep them safe.
Even if that means betraying Ben's criminal family...
