Claimed and cherished by Houston's most ruthless mob boss, artist Vivian Kalasnikov embraces her new position as Nikolai's wife and the lonely, dangerous role as queen of Houston's underworld. But Nikolai is keeping secrets from her, and the whispers of a coming street war leave her terrified for the man she so passionately loves—and the tiny life growing inside her.
Nikolai finally has everything he's ever wanted—power, wealth and a family with Vivian, the beautiful sun who lights up his dark life. But as his young wife prepares for her debut on the international art stage, he finds himself drawn into a bloody conflict that threatens the quiet life he's painstakingly built. He can feel the promise of his future happiness slipping through his fingers like grains of sand.
One wrong move, and he'll lose Vivian and his child forever. One wrong move, and he won't see another sunrise.
The sins of their fathers have come back to haunt Vivian and Nikolai. To protect his beloved wife and his heir, he'll do absolutely anything. The brutal gangster who violently conquered the streets of Moscow and Houston is about to be unleashed—and Houston's underworld will never be the same again.
Honestly this is one of the best books I have ever read. I fell in love with Nikolai since the beginning. His story is raw and powerful but full of love thanks to Ve. I recommend this book 100% but honestly I recommend all Roxie Rivera books they are just amazing all of them.
I've read the entire Russian Protector series and there seems to be an underlying theme in them all that is so very annoying! Why in the world do the girlfriends act shocked when they think or know the heros have done something illegal? Especially Vivian I mean get real she's married to a boss ... I know this is not real and believe me I'm all for stretching the truth a bit because this is why I read these stories so I can get away from real life but that nonsense has to stop. Ms. Rivera your stories rock! But you have to get those ridiculous attitudes out of those heroines I mean they are strong enough to be with the heros stop making the heros feel bad for what they have to do... I can only hope Kostya's story is worthy of him as he is an enforcer and had to handle a lot of the dark side of the business ... Please make his heroine strong!!!
