Hold Me Like a Breath (Once Upon a Crime Fam...
In Penelope Landlow’s world, almost anything can be bought or sold . . . including body parts.
A daughter of one of the three Families controlling the black market for organ transplants, Penny is crime royalty, but because of a blood disorder that causes her to bruise easily, she’s considered too delicate to handle the Family Business or even to leave their estate.
All Penny has ever wanted is for everyone to stop treating her like some fragile fairy-tale princess. But when a brutal act thrusts her— heartbroken, alone, and only steps ahead of her Family’s enemies—into the frightening mayhem of New York City, she finds that there are greater threats than a gilded cage, and that betrayal hurts worse than bruises.
Someone in her Family has been hiding a dangerous secret that could upset the balance of the entire illegal organ trade syndicate . . . and risk the lives of everyone she loves.
