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 is one of those books that pulled me in from the first chapter. I was intrigued when I first read the blurb, and I loved how the story progressed. It was such a great mix of romance, mystery/crime, and it was hella steamy!
Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the most memorable and special days of your life. Kera’s wedding day was memorable… that’s for sure. Kera’s father was in some trouble/debt and she was essentially sold off to marry Sean Foley, the heir of the biggest crime family in town. That’s until Sean changes the plans. Kera is prepared to marry Sean. What she’s not prepared for is to be wed to Sean’s henchman, Deklan.
Deklan is big and scary, but also attractive. Kera doesn’t know what to think when she’s married off to him. It freaks her out at first, that’s for sure. But Deklan is so much more than meets the eye. And even though this couple is an unlikely pair with an unconventional romance, they really do ‘fit’.
“I need you,” Deklan says. “Everything’s falling apart around me, and you’re the only thing I have left to hold onto that makes any sense.”
Sigh. Deklan. Deklan was ruthless and a bit of a brute when it came to his job, but when it comes to his wife, he’s a totally different man. I loved seeing the softer side of Deklan that Kera brings out. He was fantastic and one of my favorite heroes of Shay’s to date. Kera was a great heroine as well. She’d been dealt a crappy hand, but she tried her best to make the most of it. I love that she was independent and strong.
Deklan and Kera’s chemistry was off the charts. Seriously, these two were so hot together! This book was the perfect mix of sexy, sweet, and suspenseful. Shay Savage does a wonderful job of keeping you captivated through the entire read. Deklan is a book you won’t want to miss out on!
