The Lattanzi and Hunt families, led by dysfunctional patriarchs, are destined to intertwine in this intercontinental collection of capers spiked with adventure and romance. Similarities in the Lattanzi twins cease with their physical attributes. Liam, the elder, is a mischievous daredevil masquerading around the world as he steals priceless treasures for his associate, while his brother, Dylan, studiously pursues a career in medicine. Ryan Hannah, sole heir to the Hunt fortune, escapes banishment and death by her abusive father and goes into hiding in France. She, too, temporarily becomes a willing participant in criminal capers with two accomplices. Members of these two prominent and troubled families face murder and mayhem, share sizzling romances, seek to settle scores, and eventually - in Europe, the Caribbean, Miami, and in majestic South Africa - realize their own outstanding justice.
