I never wanted a wife. But when the Bratva tries to take what was promised to me, it's time to claim what's mine. I thought she would be a burden, a nuisance. A wife that I could lock away forever and forget about after our wedding night.
But Sofia Ferretti turns out to be the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. Sweet, innocent—and virginal. Too good for a ruthless killer like me. I'm not here to seduce her, I'm here to keep her alive. Safe from everyone in Manhattan who wants her dead.
The Bratva are coming. To take her. To kill me.
But they don't know how vicious I can be when it comes to keeping my promises.
