Summary

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.

This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

LIGHTER THAN I WAS EXPECTING.. BUT STILL LOVED IT

I would’ve probably given this book four stars.. however, John Lane’s awesome sexy Russian accent took it to a whole new (.. and deliciously droolworthy) level. It’s not at all dark.. in fact it’s quite a light listen and it’s predominantly ‘relationship’ based.. with a spoonful of evil Uncle angst and rival gang drama mixed into the romance. Russian Mafia Boss Sergei is a besotted sweetheart to Evette and her seven yr old son Emerson after falling straight away for his independent loveable little fairy.. but he’ll have to manoeuvre his chess pieces very carefully before he’ll be able to eventually call her his bride. Approaching the handsome hot Mafia Boss for help was Evie’s only option when she suddenly looses her job.. but this Bratva good guy will end up being her sexy Fairy-Godfather, her revenging Knight, a supportive Father-figure and her loving husband by the Epilogue.

Worth a credit? Yes.. it’s got a nice pace and a great build-up to the sensual dual PoV love story which is set in New Orleans between a strong-willed sassy heroine and an alpha protective honorable tattooed hero with a dark side. Good secondary characters, a dash of humor, a drop of danger and suspense, a swirl of sex, romance and swoons, a light squeeze of emotional heartache and a sweet HEA ending gives you the perfect contemporary cocktail. And I say again, John Lane’s awesome awesome awesome narration of all the characters, their emotions and the fairytale feels made this, for me, a truly compelling listen.

Absolutely loved it!!

John Lane’s voice is yummy!! Sergei is the wolf but Evie is sass with a capital S. I absolutely love their dynamic. The story was so well developed and characters. The way Sergei didn’t even give her the option to say no to being his wife was hilarious. I actually laughed. I would highly recommend this book and audio book!
