Sergei Andronikov was a child when the Mafia wiped out his family, leaving him with nothing but a hunger for revenge. Years later, through ruthless strategy and tireless patience, he's a contract killer working for the three families ruling Cape Swan... and he's nearly in position to bring them all down from the inside.
Domenico "Dom" Maisano is Mafia royalty, a made man... and a hitman. He's caught up in a violent life he can't escape, struggling to maintain an image he doesn't want, and suppressing desires he can't have.
A chance encounter throws the killers into each other's paths. Though Dom knows he's playing a dangerous game, he's intrigued and keeps coming back. Sergei can't resist him either-Dom is everything he set out to destroy, but he's also everything he's ever ached for in a man.
Then Sergei gets the contract he's been waiting for-the hit that promises to bring the town's Mafia to its knees.
But when a capo makes an unexpected move, Sergei must choose between dropping the hammer on the families he vowed to annihilate, and protecting the man he swore he wouldn't love.
And the wrong choice-or even the right one-will destroy them both.

If The Seas Catch Fire by L.A. Witt This is a romance novel between Sergei Andronikov and Domenico (Dom) Maisano. Sergei was a child when the Maisanos killed his family, leaving his mother in a vegetative state and now residing in a nursing home. He has vowed revenge and is now a contract killer for the mafiosos. He's plan is to kill enough of them until a war starts between the three mafia families: The Maisanos, the Cusimanos and the Passantinios. He goes by the name of "The Georgian." Domenico Maisano is the nephew of the current leader of the Maisano family: Corrado Maidsano. Dom's father tried to take a plea deal with the Feds and was shot in front of Dom. He is currently in charge of laundering the family's money and also in charge of killing for his uncle. One day, Dom was being beaten at the alley where Sergei moonlights as a male stripper and Sergei saves him from death. This leads to a relationship between the two men. It originally started as purely sexual, but soon it escalates to passion, and then love. Dom was supposed to marry Brigida Passantino to foment union between the two families, but realizes that he is gay and unable to do so. It becomes even more pressing for Dom to go through with the marriage when most of his family is killed and he's to become the new boss. Duty calls... Sergei is given a contract to kill Dom, but realizes he can't kill someone he loves. His revenge plans suffer a setback... The climax comes when these two men must chose between duty, revenge or love. The book is narrated from both Sergei's and Dom's third person point of view. The characters are well developed but are crying for a decent plot, which is weak and not believable. Even the love scenes are poorly written and frankly, boring. Not a fan....
