Lessa Noelle grew up never knowing she was the illegitimate daughter of a mafia king pin. After his murder, she finds herself a surprise heiress immersed in the dangerous world of organized crime with only the guidance of Marco Santo her father’s second in command to help her.
Marco searches for her father’s killer and tries to keep the realities of his life from touching her. An uneasy attraction blossoms between the two. An already dangerous situation turns volatile when a killer turns his attention to Lessa.
He held a white envelope against the glass and spoke again. “I have a letter from your father.”
She relaxed a smidge. He had the wrong person. Her father had died when she was six. But she couldn’t completely relax. He was still a stranger, and after this afternoon . . . . Whoever had tried to run her over still hadn’t been caught. And maybe she’d heard him wrong. Her car was running and the windows were shut.
She took her left hand off the steering wheel and cracked her window a quarter of an inch so she could hear him better. “I’m sorry, what did you say?”
“I have a letter from your father.”
“I think you have the wrong person.”
Lessa hesitated, her right hand tightening on the steering wheel. “Yes.”
“You’re the correct person.” His voice was low and soothing.
But it had the opposite effect on her nerves. She shook her head. “I can’t be. My father died nearly twenty years ago.”
He hesitated this time and she focused on his face. The security light cast him in harsh shadows. He wore a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a tie. No suit jacket. Probably a concession to the heat. His dark hair was brushed back off his face and his eyes appeared as dark in the night.
His lips firmed into a frown before he spoke again. “No, he didn’t. He died two days ago.”
Angie Derek writes paranormal and romantic suspense. She lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, two cats, and one pony (she thinks she needs another one to even out the number).
