The Bychkov Bratva need an heir. Now.
They wanted a girl quickly, so they chose an orphanage where no one would ask questions. They planned to use her until she was pregnant. Instead, they got twenty-one-year-old American, Starla Anderson. When the Russian Mafia invades the orphanage where she lives, in the middle of the night, throwing the nuns who raised her into a petrified frenzy, it’s Starla who is chosen as the only one who could possibly survive the Bratva and their demands.
In spite of her own fear of the three massive, glowering and scary men, Starla has to think and act fast. With her heart thundering in her chest, her body on fire at their mere presence, she sees an opportunity, something that might help the other girls at the impoverished orphanage get a chance of a better life. She lays out her only condition: her body for a fee…
Except… No one says no to the Bratva.
Publisher’s Note: This reverse harem, dark mafia romance contains elements of mystery, suspense, ménage, power exchange and a guaranteed HEA.
A Baby for the Bratva
Yes, it was a shock when Starla was summonsed from her bed in the convent to be handed over to the Bratva. The theory being that her sacrifice was necessary to save them all from the Bratva's wrath and that she would be strong enough to cope with their demands. Somewhat naively, Starla tried to barter the use of her womb before it was forcibly shown to her that she had no bargaining power, at all. Nevertheless, Starla tried to retaliate in ways that backfired on her in the end. She seems to forget that these men are the Bratva - supposedly as fierce and vicious as can be. Of course, we see no evidence of their lawless ways, they always treat Starla well and with consideration. The lawless aspect of their nature is not really touched on so it is quite believable that Starla falls for all 3 of them. I wouldn't have associated a Robin Hood aspect to the Bratva but they joke that they steal from the rich and Starla gives it to the poor. Perhaps there is balance after all. Entertaining read. I received this book as an advance review copy.
