Bullets & Betrayal
There’s only one crime family in the North American syndicate that can put fear into even the darkest of souls…
For five generations, the Valentino family has ruled the East Coast. Casinos. Money. Drugs and guns. From the day I was born, my entire life was planned out—including an arranged marriage—by a ruthless father preparing to pass down the torch.
But I, Natalia Francesca Valentino, will no longer bow to any man—not my husband and not my father.
Until my twin brother is murdered in cold blood.
Now I’m forced to take his place as second in command of the family business: a role I never wanted. What's worse is when I arrive home, deeming finding my brother's murderer my top priority, I have a head-on collision with three ghosts from my past:
My soon-to-be ex-husband, Dante. My childhood best friend and 'family' doctor, Nico and his brother and my old nemesis, Kai. And then an unexpected fourth who seems a little more interested in his boss than he should be.
But a female Mafia boss?
Yeah. If anyone can pull this off, it’s me.
Both our allies and our enemies have always underestimated me. But what they don't realize is that I will kill as many people as it takes to get my revenge. Because they’re dealing with Talia Valentino now, and I possess one fundamental advantage no man will ever have…
They’ll never see me coming.
