After a brush with death as a juvenile delinquent, Vivian swore she'd never stray across that line again—but there's just one problem with her plan to stay on the right side of the law. She's completely, irrevocably and unabashedly in love with Nikolai, the Russian mob boss who saved her life.Reader Advisory: This story contains scenes of violence against women and frank descriptions of trafficking.
From the moment Vivian appeared in his life on that tragic April night, Nikolai felt himself inextricably bonded to her. She's the bright light in his dark world and the only thing that keeps him from sliding deeper into a life of crime and violence—a mobbed-up life he can't escape no matter how hard he tries.
After Vivian is ripped from his arms in a brazen blitz attack, Nikolai will stop at nothing to get her back—but rescuing her and keeping her safe in his arms isn't enough. Suddenly, Nikolai's only chance to keep her safe is to do the one thing he vowed never to do—he'll drag her deeper into his shadowy world and bind her to him forever.
Because their tangled pasts are about to collide and the shockwave threatens to bring Houston's criminal underbelly to its knees…
In a wrap up to the Her Russian Protector series Roxie Rivera gives us another suspense filled sexy Russian alpha male in Nikolai.
Nikolai is the Houston area's Russian mob boss and he has tried very hard to keep sweet innocent Vivian out of that part of his life. He didn't want to fall in love with her because he felt she was to good for the likes of him.
Vivian has know Nikolai since she was 11 and she has grown to love the man in spite of his nefarious past and less than legal current occupation.
Throughout the series things have built with different situations causing trouble for each of the other Russians and their women. That all comes to a head with some startling revelations, Vivian and Nikolai finally getting past the issues that were keeping them apart, a church wedding, a scandalized priest, fathers returning and a human trafficking ring revealed.
Ms. Rivera has managed to take men with truly undesirable situations and made them hot and sexy. I look forward to seeing if she continues this series with some of the secondary characters.
When I’m not chasing after my wild preschooler, I like to write super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica. I live in Texas with a husband who could easily snag a job as an extra on History Channel’s new Viking series, a sweet but rowdy three-year-old with Tetralogy of Fallot, and Bosley, our Great Dane with major mommy issues.
I also have another dirty-book writing alter ego, Lolita Lopez, who writes deliciously steamy tales for Ellora’s Cave, Forever Yours/Grand Central, Mischief/Harper Collins UK, Siren Publishing and Cleis Press.
