Book one of NOLA Knights, the heart-stoppingly sexy spinoff series by Men of Haven author Rhenna Morgan
“Morgan’s hot first NOLA Knights contemporary pulls out all the stops...perfectly balances deep emotions and tense suspense.” —Publishers Weekly
His world. His rules. Her love.
Though his methods may be rough, when it comes to protecting what’s his, Russian vor Sergei Petrovyh’s heart is always in the right place. That’s never been more true than when the gorgeous Evette Labadie asks him for a job. He knows enough to keep his hands off someone as beloved by the locals as Evie, but there’s something about her that calls to him—no matter how badly he burns to make her his.
Don’t think Evie hasn’t noticed the powerful Russian mafia boss who makes her favorite diner a regular stop. How can she not? He’s as hot as his reputation is dangerous. But everyone in her struggling New Orleans neighborhood knows he’s the man to turn to. And right now she needs money to get her son out of trouble.
Her other needs—needs she knows damn well Sergei can more than satisfy—will have to wait.
Evie soon finds herself playing Cinderella to a man who, despite what people believe, is definitely more prince than villain. She can’t help falling deeper in love with each passing day. But when a turf war between Sergei and a rival brings violence to her doorstep, Evie must come to grips with loving a man who will do anything to defend her…or walk away from her best chance at a happily-ever-after of her very own.

Morgan's hot first NOLA Knights contemporary (spun off from the Men of Haven series) pulls out all the stops. Single mom Evette "Evie" Labadie has a tight deadline to get $500 to secure her seven-year-old son, Emerson, a spot at the local Montessori school. She wouldn't usually consider Russian mobster Sergei Petrovyh to be employer material, but when she's suddenly fired from her cleaning job, Evie has no choice but to go to him. Instead of helping her find a job, as she expects, Sergei hires Evie himself, assigning her to run his estate and even moving her and Emerson into the carriage house on his property. It's an arrangement that seems too good to be true until Evie's uncle and a turf war with a rival bring unwanted trouble that threaten their lives. Sergei is fiercely disciplined and incredibly sexy, hiding his vulnerability behind rigid rules and the expectation of absolute loyalty. Indomitably spirited, Evie is his perfect match, especially in the bedroom, where their lovemaking sizzles. Equally intense are Evie and Sergei's shared protectiveness of young Emerson, who desperately needs a male role model. Morgan perfectly balances deep emotions and tense suspense.
