What is a promise worth when it is made with a gun to your head?

Sergeant Carmelo Rossetti loves his job. He loves being a cop, he lives for bringing the bad guys to justice.

Milena Zakarian is the oldest daughter of the largest Armenian Mafia crime family in the state. She knows she will lead the Zakarian Syndicate when her father steps away, and she takes her duties seriously, balancing family loyalty with her own fierce independence. She has bold plans for her own life and the Syndicate, wanting to expand, modernize and lead her family to success.

However, Carmelo and Milena find themselves pawns in a much bigger game of power and control. Forced into agreeing to an arranged marriage, despite being strangers who despise each other, both of them fight and rage against the plan with all their strength.

Until the fire that kept them apart becomes the flames that bring them together. He didn’t want drama, she didn’t want baggage, but they are unable to escape from the ever-tightening web being weaved around them.

Family feuds and ugly truths mar their reluctant betrothal. Is their passion enough to keep their promises, or will they be torn apart by the very vows they swore to uphold? 

TRIGGERS: Adult themes, Minor references to alcoholism, one incident of non consensual contact, profanity, gun shot wound with minimal blood.
