My father owes a debt.

I am his currency.

I’m supposed to marry the recently crowned mafia king of the Foley family as repayment for my father’s transgressions. I don’t understand why the Foleys would want me, but I’ve grown up in a crime family, and I know the ugly consequences of not doing what you’re told.

But as the wedding date approaches, the deal changes, and I’m about to be wed to a man I know nothing about. In fact, I don’t even know his last name.
Instead of becoming a mafia princess, I’m marrying the henchman.


After one look at him, I’m not sure I’ll survive the wedding night.

DEKLAN by Shay Savage was such a GREAT, EXCITING, and SEXY read! With the perfect blend of suspense, intrigue, and romance, DEKLAN quickly became an unputdownable read. I’ve always enjoyed Ms. Savage’s books, but there was something about Deklan and Kera’s story that tugged on my heart and wouldn’t let go. 

“You’re mine now. My wife-now and forever. I will always protect you and keep you safe. No one will ever hurt you as long as I’m alive.”

I absolutely love an ALPHA MALE with a tender heart, and that is exactly what Deklan Kearney is. He is gruff and brooding on the outside, but when he is alone with Kera O’Conner, the woman he was told to marry, he is gentle, caring, and protective. These two characters together were absolutely beautiful. Their circumstances might be unique and not of their own free will, but they know how it works in the world they live in, so they make the best of it, and they are loyal to the end. I have to say if I was forced to marry someone, Deklan would not have been a hardship for me AT ALL! 


“I don’t know what I’m supposed to do.”

“You can do whatever you want, as far as I’m concerned.”

“Touch me.”



Deklan is a beautiful brute of a man, but when it came to his loyalty and to Kera, he was a gentle giant with a big heart and a good soul. I absolutely ADORED this man throughout this book. Both Deklan and Kera made this book SHINE! Their chemistry, their hesitant interaction, and then their explosive connection. Just WOW! An all-around GREAT read with plenty of suspense and dark elements to keep me captivated the whole way through. A great balance of light and dark, sexy and sweet, suspense and romance. I couldn’t get enough of this book! I loved this world that Shay Savage has created and I want more!
