Hes built a wall around his heart...
Orphaned and abandoned on the Bowerys mean streets, Jack Mulligan survived on strength, cunning, and ambition. Now he rules his territory better than any politician or copper ever could. He didnt get here by being soft. But in uptown do-gooder Justine Greene—the very definition of an iron fist in a velvet glove—Jack may have met his match.
She wears hers on her sleeve...
Justine is devoted to tracking down deadbeat husbands and fighting for fair working conditions. When her mission brings her face-to-face with Jack, shes shocked to find the man behind the criminal empire is considerably more charming and honorable than many gentlemen she knows.
Forming an unlikely alliance, they discover an unexpected desire. And when Justines past catches up with them, Jack may be her only hope of survival. Is she ready to make a deal with the devil...?
