Marry a McDade. That’s the order Cyrus Doherty gives his only daughter.
The bloodbath that claimed the lives of Whisper’s brothers put the Doherty share of the city’s business in jeopardy. Her father’s way to remedy that is to form an alliance with their enemy.
To prove to the McDades that the Dohertys intentions are true, Whisper’s father sets her up to marry the arrogant, bullish, inconsiderate man they call Razer.
The problem is, Whisper Doherty isn’t exactly known for playing nice. Finding her place in the McDade ranks won’t be easy. Especially when she can’t seem to stop sassing everyone. Other McDade women might be happy following the rules, but Whisper is no pushover.
Her husband’s issues collide with her own and combust into something neither of them expect. It’s a power struggle. A war within a war and she will not surrender.
But the bride has to deal with more than just her domineering husband. Her new father-in-law, the McDade patriarch, believes everyone is beneath him. Burl McDade expects everyone to bow to his will and that’s just not Whisper’s style.
Making an enemy of him pits her against the McDade-Doherty alliance. Burl demands her submission; Whisper will not yield. She’s on her own… or is she?
