The crime boss.

The hustling queen.

Cross and Catherine Donati have been married five years, but the life they’ve chosen still has things to teach them yet. One can never become too comfortable in their business. Trouble soon follows.

The principe and principessa are all grown up …

It’s tough being at the top. When all Cross wants is to slow down the world, reality has a way of speeding it back up. Just when Catherine thinks she’s learned everything her mother has to teach, more lessons come her way.

A king and queen must protect their thrones …

This is their life.
This is their love.

And unruly.



Catherine was surprised at how faint her voice came out. All it took was one look at her husband in the dimly lit room, and the anger she had felt about her meeting with Giuseppe and the trick her mother pulled was entirely gone.
Just like that.
Because of Cross.
Fixing the Rolex to his wrist, he flashed her a grin. “Evening, babe.”
Catherine blinked.
And again.
Surely she wasn’t seeing what she thought she was seeing. Cross wouldn’t have flown over an entire ocean just to come and spend a couple of days with her.
Except … yes, he absolutely would.
“You’re not dressed,” Catherine said, eyeing him.
“Just got out of the shower.” Cross nodded behind her. “Shut the door, huh? We’re not giving anyone a show.”
Catherine blindly waved at the door until she smacked it shut. She couldn’t possibly take her eyes off her husband because he might disappear. Obviously, she still didn’t fully believe that he was there.
Yet, he was.
Half naked.
Smiling at her.
She loved this man.
“This is why you kept purposely missing my calls?” Catherine asked.
She still hadn’t moved an inch.
“No, I actually was just missing them a lot of the time. Once, I knew it would have been too early here and didn’t want to wake you up. I got your messages, though.”
“Did you get how progressively worried I was, too?”
Cross flashed her another sexy smile. “How could I ruin your surprise, Catty?”
“I … I don’t know.”
“Happy anniversary, Catherine.” Cross reached for the new suit dangling off the edge of the bed. “Well, tomorrow, but who cares?”
She planned to celebrate their anniversary on the phone with him as much as possible because she wasn’t heading home for another couple of days. Instead, her crazy, wild, beautiful husband had done something far better for her.
“Who else knew about this little plan of yours, Cross?”
“Everyone,” he said, not missing a beat. “You know, those that matter, anyway.”
Oh, my God.
Catherine had learned to be a much better person over the years. She still had spells of depression that came and went, but she understood how to deal with them. Sometimes, her anxiety was a bitch, but she could handle those spells, too.
The thing she had worked on the hardest beyond those things?
Being a good wife.
Loving Cross.
Giving him someone he deserved.
This man gave Catherine absolutely everything he had to give, and he never questioned it. Cross loved her stupid because he didn’t know anything different. He never hesitated to be the good man she deserved, so she figured out how to do the same for him.
Sometimes, like now, she still thought maybe she didn’t deserve him at all. He was amazing, and she was … amazing in his eyes.
He still wanted her.
She never let him go.
“You know I love you, right?” Catherine asked.
She finally tossed her purse aside, letting it fall to the floor beside a pair of high heels she had discarded earlier.
Cross wasn’t looking at her when he replied, “Of course, babe.”
He was too busy opening the buttons on the dress shirt to notice she was coming for him. It was already well after supper. If she got her way, they would not be leaving this room for the rest of the damn night.
He did not need that suit.

Every king needs a queen.

Catherine Marcello learned how to stand on her own, and she no longer needs saving. The sly girl is far more dangerous now. A broken promise taught her how to live again. One conversation puts the hustler face to face with her first love, but she only sees heartache.

A Legacy Novel

A wild boy.
A sly girl.

Cross Donati defines trouble. He does what he wants because he’s never known anything different. He’s unapologetic, and he owns it.

Catherine Marcello is every bit a good girl … on the outside. Her entire world is a legacy, and she lives it. She’s curious, and she’s exploring it.

She chases bad things.
He never learned to be good.

They’re late nights, stolen cars, first times, fist fights, leather jackets, beaches, bloody smiles, and life.
They’re vicious and precious, dangerous and harmless, innocence and sin. They are love.

Love is killing for someone.
Love is living for someone.

Sometimes, you can’t keep saving your heart when it means sacrificing it, too.
Sometimes, you have to learn to save yourself.
Sometimes, love has to fall, crash, and burn.

This is what love is like when you’re a principe and principessa della mafia.
