Life is about making choices and taking chances. Some are easy. Others, not so much. Make love to a gorgeous husband? Easy choice. Accept a deadly mission when you have a new baby at home? Um, what's behind door No. 2? The widely-extended Santorno-Youngblood family continues to grow as some of the baddest assassins alive procreate some of the cutest babies alive. But don't underestimate them. They may show up in Turkey with a spare pacifier in their pocket, but the assault weapon in their hands is all that really matters. Years of danger and near loss inspire weddings and the miracle of birth for members of the team. Some couples face their pasts; others are only interested in their futures. But don't be fooled by the scent of baby powder -- these men can still throw down a rescue mission or two at a moment's notice, and heads will roll. As the new dads settle down slightly, Vince Markov is tasked with protecting Andrei Panchenko, head of the Russian mob, from those who want the now-legitimate crime families to return to the days of murder, intimidation, and mayhem to make money. Andrei insists he doesn't need Vince to protect him. Vince doesn't care what Andrei thinks. Add some near kisses, a little half nudity, a tidal pull of attraction, deadly sneak attacks and stir. Vince feels no pain - will he ever feel love? Andrei feels love, but can he handle the pain that it brings? Making choices. Taking chances. Spin the chamber. That bullet could be the key to devastating loss or second chances.
