Fate has a gun aimed at the hearts of Joy Gambini and Dante D’Angelo. If a happily-ever-after exists for either of them it won’t be found in their undercover assignments.
Joy Gambini is the exiled daughter-in-law of a New York City mobster. She meets a police officer that wants to bring down the Gambini crime family. Haller convinces Joy that her only hope for real freedom lies in working for him undercover. She is given police training and sent back to the mob.
Five years later Joy is managing a club for her ex father-in-law. Dante D’Angelo, a tough New York detective, crashes into Joy’s life when he threatens Gambini and his business. Gambini makes it Joy’s mission to keep tabs on Dante. Their mutual attraction is as futile as it is undeniable, as they circle each other in a dance of deceit.
When Dante is eventually captured by the mob Joy makes her move, saving his life and forcing them to go on the run together. During this time, Dante finds out she’s a cop and they fall in love. But after she testifies in court she must go into witness protection and they are parted yet again.
But two such resourceful individuals are destined to find a way back to each other… aren’t they?
