“The war between Benedetti and DeMarco may have been fought in our fathers’ time, but we inherit the hate, the bad blood.”
“I faced Salvatore, the man who owned me. Surely the contract we’d signed wouldn’t hold up in any court of law. But it wasn’t the contract that dictated my life. I knew what would happen if I didn’t do as I was told. I knew who would pay.”
“I’m not a monster, Lucia, but I am my father’s son. I am obligated, just as you are.”
...I was a peace offering, in a way. An olive branch. The white flag of surrender to keep everyone else safe...It was the deal: no bloodshed. We surrender. You own us.
A woman like Lucia Demarco didn't simply give her submission. A man would have to earn it. Or break her to take it.
As wrong as it is, I want you.
Life was both crazy and beautiful, and out of the ugliness and hate, we'd made love.
