Description of this Book

Many years ago, Johnny Conroy was forced into a shotgun wedding with a Manchester gangster's daughter. He's never even begun to love her, but can't leave without being killed by her vicious father. He turns out to be a success in the car-theft business, with a used car lot that provides both cover and a way to fence the cars. But now the best thing in his life - his daughter Angel - is sixteen and history seems to be repeating itself when she falls for one of his employees. Ryan is a nice boy, and he really loves Angel. But there are secrets that could destroy the happiness of Johnny and his daughter, and they are about to come out.
