Lucian Marcello knows his duty to his family, as a Capo he has been raised that family duty is always first and every decision he makes it involves family. When he inadvertently walks in on a woman having a private moment, he is haunted by her until he meets her again and then it takes every part of his will power to walk away.
Jordyn Reese has been a part of the Hell on Wheels MC since she was a teenager, not by choice. More a captive, she has kept her head down and when her one protector dies, she is left easy pickings. The President of the MC plans to make her another piece of meat as far as women are concerned and Jordyn quickly realizes her time with safety is running out.
Without given too much away, Lucian makes a decision about Jordyn that changes everything. It is not instantaneous but he is extremely protective of her, like a fragile butterfly he handles her with such care it is beautiful. Once Jordyn is back on her feet, decisions need to be made and it is then that Lucian sees that she is a strong, if not willful woman. I think the other part of this story that was so intriguing was that Lucian is used to giving orders and not being questioned, where as Jordyn is not quite as willing to comply. He makes mistakes and she lets him know where she stands on it. Great book, cant wait for the next one.
