Lies and love. This is how a war starts.

A life for a life. That’s the mafia way. Damian Rossi owes his life to a man who is ready to collect. That payment comes in the form of an arranged marriage to the daughter of another leading family in the Chicago Outfit. He’s ready to follow through, even if that means making sure Lily knows she’s his.

Lily DeLuca isn’t being given a choice. Forced home to marry a man she doesn’t know and back into a life she’d rather forget, her world is full of half-truths, buried pain, and uncertainty. But Damian is nothing like she expects. His motives aren’t clear. Her beliefs are being tested.

When it comes to this world, no man can be trusted. Someone is ready to flip the Chicago Outfit on its side all for the promise of something better. But no one runs a clean game and these men play for keeps. When blood begins to paint Chicago red, four families will be divided by loyalty, hatred, and revenge. There is no hiding. There is no safety.

No one is deathless.

No one.

Oh how I love me so Mafia books! Most every Mafia story offers gritty and raw read that will have readers desperate for more. Deathless & Divided is one of the best I have read as of late. Told by alternating pov's Lily a mafia princess and Damian the up and coming ruthless made man are the kind of intense and all consuming love story that romance lovers will devour. Damian, aka the ghost, is the dangerous of even the crime syndicate world. Nicknamed "the ghost" for his ability to get in and out unnoticed and unsuspected makes him fatal to even his own la familia. Lily has a scarred and damaged past at the hands of this world, and for the past two years she has evaded everyone and everything that represents this world. She has even conned herself into believing that she has found a way to escape. When her eldest brother Dino calls her home it is for his own agenda, and she quickly learns that she never had a chance to leave this world so easily. Within days she finds herself in the middle of a deadly game between mafia family, and engaged to the most dangerous man of them all. Although, quickly her own curiosity betrays her, and she finds herself drawn more and more to everything about him. Can he be deadly, and a good man??? Will Lily spend the rest of her days married to a man she can never love???? This was the question throughout D&D where one wrong step in this precarious world ends up with a unwanted visitor and an untimely end. Be aware that this is very much an erotica novel with very detailed content. I am very selective with such novels as it is not really what I am looking for. It is necessary for the story to have an overwhelmingly compelling story to equal the sexual content to have a well balanced story line. This was just that! D&D will knockout your socks off with the suspense of the story all the while making you hot under the collar.
