Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Katee Robert begins a smoking hot new series about the O'Malley family - wealthy, powerful, dangerous, and seething with scandal.
Teague O'Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family's name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a "business" alliance, Teague's ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancΓ©e, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and vows he will do everything in his power to protect her.
Everyone knows the O'Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn't aware just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. But the closer they get, the more trouble they're in. Because Callie's keeping a dark secret-and what Teague doesn't know could get him killed.

AN ACTION PACKED ARRANGED MARRIAGE

Three Irish Crime Families - the O'Malley's, the Halloran's and the Sheridan's and, in order to make an alliance between the H. and the S. an arranged marriage has been made.... between the strong but fearful Callie, only heir to the S. Family and Brendan a brutal, ruthless and evil son in the H. Family. However, when Brendan was found murdered another alliance and another groom had to be found for Callie.... and this time it's the handsome Teague O'Malley that's been chosen but he's not happy - not with the business nor the fact that he has to marry at all..... until he sees his intended bride. Because the bruises around her slim neck and the haunted look in her beautiful blue eyes brought out his protective side..... well that and the whole instant lust/attraction/sizzling chemistry thing that was going on between them which put a smile on both their faces.

The S.'s and the O'.s might be happy but the volatile H.'s are out for blood and they don't care who they have to hurt to get the name of the person who killed Brendan.... and sometimes they just hurt for the fun of it. Teague and Callie's feelings grew as they got to know each other and they managed to spend some sexy times together too but this was in between beatings, threats, failed peace talks, wedding preparations, bullets, blood, murder, revenge, retribution, a kidnapping, a harrowing escape and a BIG secret that started it all.

Apart from it being a really good romance, this laid the foundation of the three Families and the many siblings within them and was a riveting story because, right from the start, it hooks you in as the dramatic first few Chapters then leads you into an action-packed story as someone unwittingly lit the fuse that would ignite Underworld chaos. Multiple POV's but mainly the Hero and Heroines, packed full of secondary characters whose books will hopefully follow and the narration was good. There are also lighter scenes too.

Worth a credit? It's a really enjoyable and drama packed start to the powerful O'Malley's, it's an introduction to the lifestyle and characters of three Crime Families and it's also a tender, sweet and romantic love story between two of those characters who just want peace..... and to be left to fall in love. Yes, there was insta-everything, so anyone who's not a fan of that shouldn't buy this.... but for everyone else this gets the green light from me.... YES creditworthy.
