Marie should have run away from her abusive mother when she had the chance.
But she stayed home and cared for the terminally ill monster.
The one person that she loved but never loved her back.
Just as she thought her miserable life was never going to get better…
She met a mysterious out-of-towner.
She ignored her mother’s advice: to never speak with any man, that all men are bad.
This beautiful stranger showered her with gifts, kindness, and attention.
He gave her the sort of love that she had never experienced before in her life.
What Marie didn’t know is that this gorgeous man—a mafioso—had a reason to get close to her.
He was on a special revenge mission—and she was his target.
