I am to wed the eldest Volkov.
Problem is, her younger sister is the one who awakens my dead heart.
It is her I want in my bed and by my side forever.

About Ker Dukey
My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
I was pleasantly surprised with the gripping plot line of this book. The moment I sat down to read it, I just couldn’t take it off my hands until the end. The power play between the Russian families was such a treat to read, especially for someone like me who is partial to reading about organized crime.
I love how each chapter changes from the transition of perspectives from Vlad and Irina seamlessly. Their provoking thoughts and steamy chemistry will have you hooked for their romance from the get-go. Partner that with the intrigue and deceit of the Russian mob and the V Games, well it just created one great love story.
It was endearing how much Vlad cared so much about Irina, even when he was trying so hard to hide it. In the end, it was inevitable to conceal their feelings for each other. Their forbidden love got me so invested that I couldn’t wait to turn the pages and find out how they get to have their HEA.
That last chapter got me so intrigued in the end though! I cannot wait to read more about Diana and Ven in the next book! I’m absolutely certain that it will be as great as this one!
