He makes the rules…
Mafia 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…

Absolutely. I would recommend all three parts, of course. As I have said in the previous two reviews, I rarely give 5 stars to any story/narrator because I believe there is always room for improvement. However, this 3 Part story deserved the 5 and more in all three categories. The story was short but to the point. The characters were identified, the plot revealed and twists, turns and road-blocks were woven into it; there was intrigue, secrets revealed, angst experienced (much), romance, sensuality and raw sex. All of which were described by the author and performed by the narrator in a manner that drew me in and made me feel like I was either floating above looking down on all the goings on or standing invisible watching every nuance, facial expression, feeling exposed by body language; I felt a part of it all.
Syvastian and Natalie, of course. But Natalie's father a close second.
The hero and heroine; that said she did a wonderful job with all main characters.
Yes. Without spoiling anything, hopefully, it was when Natalie told Syvastian that if he shared about himself she would feel closer to him; she asked questions and he answered them.
Great ending but wanted more.
I love Kresley Cole, both Immortals after Dark and the Arcana Chronicles. Since I enjoyed all those books I thought I would see how she did with a more lusty book. Wow its bad. I'm sorry this is not soft porn, its just plain crude. If the actual storylines were better than maybe I would have enjoyed the book more. It's hard to believe she wrote these. I think maybe she rushed them. Either way I won't try this type of book from her again.
Great book I have listened to it several times but I did NOT like having to purchase it in 3 separate parts I felt it was a rip off and how the parts were split was stupid and happened it strange places.
I am happy to see that book 2 is not separated into 3 parts.
Loved the conclusion of this story. It had a perfect ending. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't a serial. I just can't give a serial 5 stars no matter how good the story. Serials are too much of an inconvenience.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book is not for everyone. First off I don't like BDSM, mild forms are acceptable such as tying up, spanking, even exhibitionism from both partners. The rest I don't want, being whipped has no appeal to me. I almost didn't read this series because of this. But I love Kresley Cole so much that when the semiannual sale happened I got all three books to this story. And with my fingers crossed I proceeded to enter into KS's new world. Admittedly this book has some hot parts, but some of the sex was too over the top for my style, mostly in the third book. Since I knew what this book was about before I bought it, I went with it anyway. I will not be getting the next book, there was just too much unpleasant sex for me that I will invest time in the second. I hate that one of my favorite authors was sucked into this new craze of writing about this junk, what is really annoying is that everybody is acting like it’s a new and exciting thing. Well it isn't on both fronts. As usual Kresley Cole style of writing flowed well and the story came alive, I did like the Russian part and the romance of the story. Overall hard to rate I didn't like the BDSM, but the writing does pull you in. Narrator was really good, she does a really good Russian accent.
On a side note I was not impressed with the fact that this book was split into 3 parts and as long as this story is the only book KS comes out with that is cut up I will forgive her. I think it is just another way for the publishers/ authors to rip off fans.
I'll go ahead to the other book. maybe I'll enjoy that one. Hopefully it'll be great.
Yes, the dirty talking alpha is so much better when you hear it rather than read it.
