Mary and Ben are the star-crossed black sheep of two powerful families embroiled in a centuries-long enmity in Die in a Gunfight, and they’re ready to rekindle an affair after years apart. Mukul, Ben’s best friend, who owes him a life debt; Terrence, Mary’s would-be protector-turned-stalker; Wayne, an Aussie hitman with an open mind and a code of ethics; and his free-spirited girlfriend, Barbie, will all be drawn in by their forbidden love.
