Seth Morgan has returned home after two years spent building an alliance that will take his family's crime syndicate to a new level in New York City's black collar society. He expects a warm welcome as heir of the Morgan empire. He hopes to finally marry Nicolette, the woman he's loved his whole life.

 What he finds is a different world, one where his family's legacy is in ruins. His big brother, Caleb, has changed into someone cold and bitter, plotting to overthrow their patriarch. And Nicolette, daughter of the criminal banking industry, has left the family entirely.

 When a vicious misunderstanding leaves Caleb dead, Seth is left reeling. Desperate for truth, Seth is forced to turn to his only remaining cousin, Emma, for support. As he tries to mend his relationship with Nicolette, he begins a search for answers that will take him from the dirty streets to the highest reaches of their illicit empire.

 Torn between the desire to protect those who mean the most to him, and a need to learn more about Caleb's death, he grows distant to protect them. As each secret surfaces, he realizes that the only way to restore his family is to take his place at its head, and fully embrace the brutal way they live.

Tana’s Review:

The Prince of Blood and Steel is filled with love, lies, and betrayal. This book hits the ground running leading with the death of Seth’s father the Morgan King. A high profiled crime boss who rules the Upper East Side. His death leaves his two twenty something son’s to take the thrown.

After two long years Seth returns to find his whole life hanging on by a thread. Nothing is the way that he left it. As much as his life in the Upper East Side has changed in his absence the care free playboy changed even more the once immature boy who only care in the world was which party to attend; returned a hardened man determined to get back all the things he lost in the two years he was away; including his throne and the love of his life. Upon his return he faces more loss with the death of his only brother. The struggle to regain his rightful place as king of the Morgan Empire is only rivaled by his need to avenge his brother’s death. He doesn’t know who to trust or where to turn but he does know that he can always count on his two favorite girls; his beautiful cousin Emma a Princess to this life and the only women he ever loved Nicolette. This unstoppable threesome plan to take what has always been theirs. The Morgan Empire. This book constantly kept you guessing what was coming next. Filled with twists and turns but it always came down to who was loyal and who was only loyal to your face.
