“Morgan’s hot first NOLA Knights contemporary (spun off from the Men of Haven series) pulls out all the stops...perfectly balances deep emotions and tense suspense.” —Publishers Weekly

Book one of NOLA Knights, the heart-stoppingly sexy spinoff series by Men of Haven author Rhenna Morgan

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.

Loved, loved, loved!

One of my favorite books. The build up of their relationship was intoxicating. I fell in love with not only the 2 main characters, but all of them. I would love to see a continuation of this love story. Evie being the down to earth, straight forward momma. Sergei being the crazy doting, over-protective father to a little girl.

Delightful story

Enjoyed the story and characters very much. In particular I appreciated the fact that the female lead was not an overly emotional dits. She was rational, thought through issues and came to logical decisions rather than falling apart and behaving like adolescent. The male character was equally enjoyable. He had two very distinctive sides to his personality; strong and controlling to a degree and a protective as well as affectionate side. It made for an interesting couple.
