What happens when the grandchildren of the rival families fall in love with each other?
Love, honor, and respect.
The motto has maintained the Torres crime family for decades. It's why they were always ten steps ahead of their adversaries. It's also why they were the most-feared crime family in all of New York. It's also why there was such a brotherhood between Pablo Torres, and his right-hand man/best friend, Clyde Lewis.
The two men formed a solid bond when their children became best friends, attending each other's birthday parties, graduations, and other celebrations in a twenty-five year time span. The sons grew up to become mafia dons in their own right, controlling all of Harlem.
But all good things must end.
When an associate of the Torres's mistakenly takes out a member of the Lewis family, all love, honor, and respect is thrown out of the window and is replaced with hate, disappointment, and revenge.
H.E.R. is a series of small novellas dealing with revenge, true love, and if time really heals. It's a modern-day retelling of Romeo and Juliet.
