SYNOPSIS

Where is Kiro?
He’s the lost Dragusha brother, heir to a vast mafia empire—brilliant, violent, and utterly savage…and he’s been missing for years.

Ann
I’m supposed to be doing simple undercover research at the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous, but I can’t keep my mind off Patient 34. He’s startlingly young and gorgeous, but it’s not just that. He’s strapped way too tightly to that bed. And there’s no name or criminal history on his chart. What are these people hiding? My reporter’s instincts are screaming.

Here’s the other thing: the staffers here believe he’s so sedated that there’s not a thought in his head, but I catch him watching me when nobody’s looking. Our connection sizzles when I enter the room. When our eyes meet, I know he understands me in a way nobody else ever has.

I’m supposed to follow my editor’s orders—I have secrets, too—but everything about Patient 34 is suspicious. How can I not investigate?

  “Together we rule. Together we cannot be defeated.”

What a series this has been! Intense, passionate and very suspenseful! The build up through the previous books, Dark Mafia Prince and Wicked Mafia Prince has culminated in this instalment and wow! What a game of cat and mouse adrenaline filled story it was as we set upon a quest with the Dragusha brothers to restore the prophecy and see them as fulfil their reign as rightful heirs to a criminal empire.

The Dragusha brothers love their women with a fierceness, possessiveness and all-consuming passion that pulsated off the pages! When these guys love, they love for life. They’re strong, powerful and share an inexplicable brotherly bond that has never wavered despite being ripped apart after their parents were murdered when they were small boys.

‘You can never give people anything. They only hurt you with it.’

Each book has covered a different Dragusha brother, Aleksio, Viktor and now Kiro, the youngest and most vulnerable of the brothers. This young man has had it tough since being kidnapped as a baby. Passed from foster home, to laboratory to now being held in the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill, completely unaware that he has a family looking for him.

Under instructions from the head of the hospital, Dr Fancher, Kiro is being kept in a drug induced vegetated state, strapped to a bed day and night to keep him from escaping. They’re of the assumption that Kiro can neither speak nor communicate due to his inactive state, that is until he meets Nurse Ann and shows her glimpses that he can in fact understand what is going on around him.

“Don’t worry, Ann. I will always protect you.”

Ann is a journalist, working undercover at the hospital to break a story about drug movement within those walls. What Ann uncovers is so much more. She’s immediately drawn to Patient 34, knowing he is relating to her which sees her naturally inquisitive nature investigate who Patient 34 really is and why he is being kept in such deplorable circumstances.

The connection between Ann and Kiro is magnetic, raw, primal and instantly passionate.  He is drawn to her, compelled to her in a very sexual way, yet he relishes the caring side she shows him. Having lived a life of pain and hurt, Kiro responds to Ann’s caring nature.

His breath is velvet on my cheek. “There’s nowhere you can hide from me. No part of you can hide from me.”

Having lived most of his life in the wild, Kiro’s lust and desire is very primitive and oh boy did the sex scenes between Ann and Krio reflect this! Wow! They were fervent, rough, consuming and very, very hot.

“You’re mine to feed. Mine to care for. Mine to fuck. Mine to make come.”

The story really kicks off when Ann attempts to free Kiro. Time isn’t on their side as everyone is after Kiro. Aleksio and Viktor are in a race against time to find Kiro before the crazed and dangerous Lazarus, a powerful Albanian Mafia kingpin, hell bent on ensuring the brothers never connect to prevent the prophecy from coming to fruition. With no scruples or compassion, this man will stop at nothing in his quest to find Kiro before his brothers.

A tantalising, thrilling, adrenaline filled story told with excitement and passion delivering the hunger, love, primal possessiveness and yes…even some ‘caveman kink’ of a man who would do anything to protect the woman he loves. The prophecy, bond and intense link of brotherhood, the gripping love stories, and the exhilarating suspense all went into making this a series one we couldn’t put down!

SYNOPSIS

Aleksio
Don’t look at me like that. So trusting.
Like you think I’m not a monster.
Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will.
Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by piece, to save my brother.
I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died.
And when you look at me like that, I die again.
Mira
I spent years making myself invisible.
A good girl, apart from the noise.
Then you came back, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit.
Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say.
But I remember your smile and those sunny days.
Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.
Before they told us the prince was dead.

“When I touch you, I want you. And I feel lost.”
“You’re never lost when I’m in the world.”

What a fabulously enthralling and gripping second book in the Dangerous Royals Romance series. Each book has taken us on a suspense filled journey with Viktor’s book making us desperate for the next book as the search to fulfil their prophecy continues. We can’t get enough of this romantic, passionate, suspenseful and addictive series as Annika Martin takes us into her world with hearts pounding and fingers eagerly turning the page as the story races towards its crescendo.

‘Fighting men didn’t scare me; it was my dark past I was frightened of.’

And don’t get us started on those Dragusha brothers and the women who own their hearts!! It’s passionate, raw and all consuming, the bond and love between these brothers who will stop at nothing to be reunited keeps us riveted and urging them on!

We garnered snippets about Viktor in Aleksio’s book, Dark Mafia Prince. He was the tough quiet brooding brother who grew up in a Russian orphanage after a tragedy had taken him from his family when he was only a toddler. His story is as equally tragic as Aleksio’s and possibly even more so as Viktor carries the guilt and suffering deep in his heart for a decision that haunts him to his core.

“You see a ghost. You see this woman with your eyes, but I see her with my heart.”

Viktor was taken by the Bratva, the Russian Mafia at a young age and groomed to be an Assassin. It is there he meets Tanechka Stepanov, a woman who would completely and utterly steals his heart.  Viktor deeply loved this woman who was such a contradiction. Tanechka loved warmth and sunflowers, but could cold bloodedly kill a man without blinking an eye. She fiercely loves Viktor, he owns her heart until an act of betrayal rips them apart.

“You’re not a terrible person, you’re just a man who feels deeply. You want to be loved. To be forgiven.”

We remember Viktor, constantly watching a streaming of a live slave auction at a brother called Valhalla that is run by their sworn enemy, Bloody Lazarus. What was it that had Viktor so consumed, watching these feeds night and day, never taking his eyes off one of the women. Viktor has struggled to live with the pain of losing Tanechka and has had to live with the aftermath of his actions, of his betrayal.  Could it be her? Is Tanechka back in his life? Is she undercover or is it even really her and if so…how?

‘I know it’s her. I’ll always know moya Tanechka – my Tanechka.’

Well, you’ll have to see for yourselves how it unfolds, as Annika Martin once again crafted a deliciously engrossing story of love, loss, violence and revenge that had our pounding as we once again took a walk, or rather a high speed chase, through her gripping and exciting Mafiya world.

“Have I ever told you fucking Russians are way too fucking dramatic?”

The story of the Dragusha brothers and their quest has captured our imagination and kept us on our toes, yet beneath all the suspense, violence and mayhem lies the beautiful story of soul searing second chance love that gripped our hearts. OMG! We need the next book now! A definite recommendation of what is becoming one of our favourite Mafia romance series.

“Together the Dragusha brother will rain fire on Bloody Lazarus. And we’ll have our empire back.”

Dark Mafia Prince (1)

Reviewed by Gitte & Jenny

‘When you’re a killer, ugly and bloody and beaten to shit, you don’t hate the stars for shining. You’re glad there’s something good out there.’

We absolutely love our Mafia stories and having read Annika Martin before we had a feeling this was going to be a fabulous read. And it really was. The Dark Mafia Prince had suspense, thrills and dark passion. It was incredibly addictive and beneath the violence, vengeance and darkness hides soft hearts and lost love of friends and brothers.

“I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have because every time you look at me, you see somebody who’s not there anymore. Because every time you look at me, you fool yourself about what I really am.”

There were so many secrets which surrounded an old tale – a premonition if you will – that one day the three brothers will reunite and take back what’s rightfully theirs. These three brothers were separated by a violent tragedy and sent away resulting in absolutely horrific childhoods.

‘The sleeping king, he always called me. You will gather your brothers and take back your kingdom.’

This is the basis for the intense and fast paced story of Aleksio. We follow two brothers -Aleksio and Viktor- on their quest to find their long lost baby brother –Kiro- not knowing if he’s alive or dead. It all begins with getting the necessary leverage to extract valuable information of his whereabouts. This leverage is Mafia Princess, Mira. But Mira is not just a bargaining tool. She’s Aleksio’s past, present and possible future.

“I always watched you. Always saw you. You were always mine.”

So many secrets, a premonition by an old crone, revenge and old friendships and the power of family. Two broken characters, tragic discoveries and dark violent consequences beyond control. Passion, lust and love. Enemies, friendship and loyalty. It’s all there to discover in The Dark Mafia Prince a vengeful journey where not all is what it seems.

“I would tear apart the world looking for you.”

Annika Martin is a brilliant writer and we were completely consumed by this story wanting more, more and more. We were gutted when it ended, but as they say where one finishes another begins and we’re so excited for the next instalment in this series, which will be Viktor’s story.

‘Apart they are weak, together they are strong. They will take everything.’
