Love Like the Nineties: A Classic Romance (Paperback)
Born into a family of the most dangerous and powerful men in Chicago, Antonia "Tao" Angeles was raised rugged. Killing had easily become second nature to her. For that reason, she became the first and only female contract killer on a team full of ruthless men, those men being her brothers and the love of her life, Poppa. As their most deadly weapon, Tao was considered untouchable. She usually went unseen, but there was no doubt that she'd be felt. At twenty-one years old, Tao is growing bored with her dangerous lifestyle, and her only focus is securing enough money to bow out of the family business, forever. That is until her mentor, best friend, and her oldest brother, Bird, is killed unexpectedly. Her hopes of leaving the assassination life behind her are put aside when she is sent to Memphis, Tennessee to even the scoreboard with the person responsible for her brother's death. Tao promises herself that this would be her very last job. She plans to get in, get the job done, and get back to Chicago to start anew. Needless to say, things never go as planned. Tao's plan goes left when she runs into The King of Memphis, also known as Memphis. Memphis is a powerful young man who holds the key to the streets of Memphis. With her longtime boyfriend back home in Chicago, Memphis steals Tao's heart. The only problem with that is, he's connected to her brother's murderer, and he may even be the very reason for her visit to the M-town.
