Simmy is looking for this one! Arranged marriage, and I feel like I’ve read this trope before, but probably not this one. The one I’m thinking of was more of a historical romance…
Hoping you and your sleuths can help find this book I am looking.
What I remember is it was a mafia series. I specifically remember in the second book, there was an arranged marriage between the heroine and the hero.
On the night of their wedding, the Hero cut his arm for the wedding ritual instead of forcing anything on the heroine. It was either set in Chicago/NY (my memory is failing me now and that could be incorrect).
