Charley Glass arrived in her family's lives like the hurricane she'd escaped. But she hadn't run far enough: the ruthless Giordano family are on her tail and want two things -- her life, and the return of the property she stole from them. No matter how many bodies stack up.After years of longing, Charley finally has the family she's always wanted, but now she's going to have to tell them the real reason she came looking them. There is only one way she's going to stay alive, and that is to employ the muscle of the notorious Glass Family. The head of the family, Luke, has become embroiled in a dangerous political plot and isn't sure they're strong enough to take on one of New Orleans' biggest crime gangs. But he'd put his life on the line to protect the empire they've built -- even if they'll have to take on an enemy hurting enough to cross an ocean for revenge.
