The Vetrov name comes with expectation.
My role in this world is simple: do as Father asks and live my life how he planned it.
My future is already written: run the empire.
Old Values. Old Rule. Old Money.
Everything I do lacks purpose.
Everything I do is empty.
Women. Money. Power. It meant nothing.
When the Volkov rose showed up at my home a disgraced package, hand-delivered by a Vasiliev prince, I began paving my own path.
I vowed to make her bloom once more.
She consumed me.
Her. Her. Her.
But you can’t love a rose and expect not to be damaged by her thorns.
She cut me too deep.
And I bled out.
My soul fled.
All that’s left is a cold, calculating monster.
I am Veniamin.
Volcanic. Victorious. Valiant. Vetrov.
When you enter my world to play games, prepare to lose.
In the end, I always find the thorn in my side, and I pluck it right out.

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.
This is one of my most awaited series installment in 2018. When I read Vlad early this year, I was instantly hooked into the vicious world of the Russian mafia. I love how the story of The V Games intertwines with one another. The unrepentant ruthlessness of each character will make you want to hate them all but you can’t help but love them nonetheless. That was especially true for Veniamin “Ven” Vetrov, the revered V Games champion and one of the heirs to Russia’s mob royalty. I loved that despite everything he had been through, he still had a soft spot on Diana Volkov.
Though it was never in the works for them to be together, fate somehow managed to bring them closer to each other. Diana who was shunned by her own family from her past indiscretion took refuge in Ven’s arms. I loved how the authors did not hold back in revealing the atrocity of the mob world and how the characters suffered (in one way or another) from the consequences of living their lives in the criminal world.
But amidst all of that, Diana remained victorious. In a world that took everything from her, she was able to get retribution with a vengeance. I love how the authors portrayed the contrast between the two Volkov sisters – Diana and Irina. They were as different as night and day but they still found a way to carve their own place in the Russian mob. In the end, Diana was able to get her revenge on the people who betrayed her. It was stunning how the authors narrated her victory in the V Games. It was like watching a scene straight out of the Hunger Games!
Diana is one badass woman that didn’t need a knight to slay dragons for her because she slew them herself. That alone is enough of a reason to give this book a 5-star rating it deserves.
