While clawing her way out of Houston’s worst neighborhood, Lena vowed to never let any man have power over her. After a lifetime of broken promises from her criminal father and a mother who abandoned her, Lena believes that love makes you vulnerable. She’s never been tempted to test that belief…until Yuri.
Sexy as sin and with a dark reputation, Russian billionaire Yuri Novakovsky survived a miserable childhood of poverty and neglect to ascend the pinnacle of success. He enjoys the perks of his massive wealth without much thought to the consequences…until Lena.
When Lena’s father and cousin blunder into an international art theft operation, Yuri seizes his chance to be her protector. But when past misdeeds catch up with him and threaten Lena’s safety, Yuri puts her love and trust in him to the test.

He’ll prove he’s the man she needs—a man she can trust and depend upon—one sensual, wicked kiss at a time.

***YURI is a full-length novel, clocking in at 90,000 words and 300+ pages.***

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.

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…

Reader Advisory: This story contains scenes of violence against women and frank descriptions of trafficking.

Coming in as book 3 in the Her Russian Protector series Yuri can be read as a stand alone but it is better in the context of being read after the first 2.

Yuri is a billionaire who has made his fortune coming from nothing, he is tough, ruthless and completely smitten with Lena. Lena is at the top of her PR game she is independent and she can take care of herself, she also came from nothing and has some pretty strong feelings of her own for Yuri.

Roxie Rivera gives us another hot steamy, sexy and fun story about a hunky alpha Russian and the woman he loves. We are also given a mystery that can be suspenseful and exciting. I enjoyed that most of the drama in the book came from the mystery angle and not from the hero and heroine fighting some kind of attraction for no good reason, Yuri and Lena are hot for each other and they jump right in and keep it going at a regular pace throughout the book.

I don't want any spoilers here so I will say the one thing I would have liked is to have had a bit more detail on the bad guys and it was wrapped up way to quick and easy for my taste but then again this is an erotic romance not a true crime story so it works. I am looking forward to the release of the 4th book Nikolai and plan on reviewing it as soon as it is out.

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.
