In the second book of the Billionaire Tricksters of Boston series, Nicole Camden explores the erotic, alluring worlds of mysterious magicians and ladies whose desires tempt them ever deeper into a world they don't quite understand... Nicholas Cord has been trying to leave his family's past behind since he was a boy. The heir apparent to a Boston gangland empire, he's torn between love for his family and the desire to walk his own path. Taking refuge in working on his knotting skills, he hates nothing more than drama, yet he's inexplicably drawn to a woman who inevitably creates it wherever she goes... Actress-musician-waitress Blake Webster has been a friend of Nicholas's for years, but she still can't quite figure him out. In a moment of curiosity, she allows Nicholas to demonstrate his prowess with knot tying on her...and the pull she feels toward him shifts from friendship into something more. As their chemistry catches fire, neither can deny their connection. But now, Nicholas must decide where his loyalties lie; will he choose the family he's tied to, or the woman they're threatening to cut out?
