I was bred for this. For Mafiya.
Instead, I relinquished my crown to my younger brother.
I’m the dirty side of the Mafiya.
I clean up the messes. The bodies. The problems.
Here in America, I’m the Russian King.
I never expected to want my mark. To crave her, to need her.
One thing about being the leader of the Bratva, I always get what I want.
I’m corrupted, I never promised to play fair.
Unwanted and unloved.
I lay in that hospital bed, broken.
One bad decision and I almost killed someone,
The dark shadow coming to finish the job,
turns out to be my bright light.
I try to hold back, fighting temptation.
Who would want someone so damaged?
He doesn’t know it, but I’m good at keeping secrets.
You have to be, when you have so many.
By Far My Favorite!
*Action Packed, Captivating, and Explosive!
Sapphire Knight just keeps getting better with each release. Perhaps it is the fact that I have a little something for the mafia men, but Vikor has become the male character in the Russkaya Mafiya/Oath Keepers series who has corrupted me!
This is the story of Viktor and Elaina and their explosive journey to find love.
Viktor is the leader of the Bratva, the dirty side of the Mafiya. He is hard, determined, and willing to get his hands dirty. He never promised to play fair, and he always gets what he wants. His sights are set on Elaina, and patience my not remain in the cards much longer, especially when danger threatens the promise he made to protect Elaina.
Elaina grew up feeling unwanted and unloved. She has worked hard to protect herself from others, remaining cautious about getting too close. However, under the smart, independent, and strong exterior lies a heart yearning for love and affection. As she spend more time around Viktor, she can’t help but begin to care for his protective, devoted, gentle and caring side. But is this simply due to his connection to her sister and his promise to care for her, or are her feelings reciprocated?
When danger finds it ways to the front door, will Viktor and Elaina finally see the love and passion they both have for one another? Will they finally be able to open up to one another? Or will past connections with the Mafiya bring a level of danger to the door that is too strong for the two to survive?
The story line is action packed and flows well, and the characters have a chemistry that is sizzling! If you have not read the first three books in the series, I highly recommend reading those before this one.
Elaina whimpers softly behind me and I reach back, squeezing her hand, attempting to comfort her. The bright light glints off the Mercedes and for the first time I notice the front of the vehicle. Sergei is laid out on the hood, throat slit, covered in dark blood.
I walk toward him, noticing something on the windshield. The club door bangs as it slams closed. I jump a little, ready to protect Elaina with my life if necessary. Twisting, I find Alexei, looking at me, perplexed.
“Shit! Boss?” He moves to do an area search.
“No. Stay with Elaina.” I growl at him and remove my gun, screwing on my silencer. I’m going to kill any of them that I find still here. They have nerve, coming at me, the king of the Bratva. I will feed each one to the fish if necessary. Whoever did this deserves to hurt. They will pay; I will make sure of it.
I carefully walk around the car and scan the surroundings but I find no one. I return to the front of the vehicle, and move closer to check on Sergei. He is very much dead and across the windshield in his blood, is smeared WAR.
