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.

This was a great story...very different twist on the Romance/Suspense angle...Calli just beats herself up so bad for simply defending herself. Loved Teague. He jumped in and swept the girl off her feet. The only thing I don't like is the end of the felt rushed. The last 2 chapters are very good then you get to the end and you feel like there should be more or something was left out. Charlotte North's performance was awesome. She really brought the characters to life. I would recommend this bok to anyone.
