Jon Fixx is a wanted man. Brides have him on speed dial. Grooms appreciate his discretion. Parents brag about his services. Bridesmaids fight over him for the first dance. Jon never imagined his original and personalized newlywed novellas would be such a lucrative hit. He’s never missed a deadline. He’s never received a complaint. Every couple he has ever written about thrilled with their very own hardcover, Hollywood-styled romance. Until now…

The love of Jon’s life has left him for another man. His most recent newlywed novella was received with tears (from the bride) and threats (from her powerful father). But Jon doesn’t care. Without his muse, he’s nothing. How can he be expected to write about budding romance when his love life is in pieces?

He may not have a choice. He’s under contract to finish one more novella for Maggie Vespucci, the daughter of the most powerful mob boss in New York, and Marco Balducci, a rising star in the mob ranks. Maggie’s father, Tony, will do anything to make his daughter happy. Tony tells Jon: write the novella, or else.

When the FBI shows up on Jon’s doorstep, he realizes he has far more to worry about than his broken heart. Only his writing can save him, and it’s going to take more than some fancy writing to get him out of this mess. With his cross-dressing best friend, Luci, and his recently hired ex-Special Forces bodyguard, Donovan, Jon has a slim chance of finishing the job before he runs out of time. Mob secrets run deep, and Jon soon discovers he could be digging his own grave.
