One of my favorite authors from my “paranormal” days (Kresley Cole), is writing a er… contemporary romance? And by “contemporary romance” I mean a hero (or is he an anti-hero?) Russian Mafia enforcer/ex MMA-fighter bad boy/bad guy series!
Tee hee!! Could she have chose a lot of more “up my alley” qualities in a “bad guy” book hero? Book #1 is out, and two more to come in just a few weeks!
Thank you so much Tracie, for bringing this one to my attention!
Tracie: Woke up this morning to see “The Professional - Part 1″ in my Kindle… it’s Kresley Cole! You can’t go wrong with that! So, I started to read. I am 26% in and CAN NOT PUT IT DOWN. Even now, at work, I am trying to hide my iPhone (with my Kindle app) and read at the same time! O.M.G! Turns out, this is her new series and it is HOT. OH yeah, its Russian Mafia and he is an ex MMA fighter! What a combination (swoon).
Tracie: I finished it by the way…. And it was OH so good. A total 5 stars for me. And I NEVER give out 5 stars (a lot of 4.5, but never 5). … Just picture Kresley Cole romance with some “dark tendencies” thrown in to make it hotter than her normal stuff. YIPEE!
About book #1:
He makes the rules . . .
Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.
Rules are made to be broken . . .
PhD student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures. With every day she spends under his protection, she falls deeper under his masterful spell.
Are you ready to play?
Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy’s reach, Sevastyan spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-wealthy in Paris, the two lovers will discover that even their darkest—and most forbidden—fantasies can come true…
