Ruthless People #1…the book that started it all……
"One Marriage + Two Bosses = 3X the Chaos."
To the outside world, they look like American royalty, giving to charities, feeding the homeless, and rebuilding the city. But behind closed doors is a constant battle for dominance between two bosses, cultures, and hearts.
Ruthless People is a romantic crime fiction set in modern day Chicago and follows the life and marriage of Melody Giovanni and Liam Callahan - rivals by blood and leaders through fear. Theirs is an arranged marriage with the goal of ending years of bloodshed between the Irish and the Italians. Liam assumes he's getting a simple-minded wife, one he can control, one who bends to his every need...he’ll soon find out that his wife to be does not fit that mold.
Melody knows exactly what type of man Liam is and would rather die than give up the power she has spent her life earning.
The mafia of the past has evolved, and with rival bosses gunning for their family, Melody and Liam will have to learn to work as one to take down those who stand in their way.

    I couldn't put it down. Well defined characters that pull you in and hook you!!!! All that and more in a fast paced and sexy story. One of the best books I've read in years.

    This book was recommended to me because it was free and most of those are mediocre at best. Not this book! I was blown away by the dynamic characters, the plots and schemes, all the action and their steamy sex. I didn't even know I was missing a mobster romance until today! Melody and Liam are two people you do NOT want to mess with and I can't wait to see who they murder next!!!
