Meeting gorgeous, rich, and urbane Nikolai Barinov outside of his bar, the most exclusive in New York, isn’t fate. It’s something darker, and much more dangerous. And although he doesn’t know if he can trust me, he can’t help falling for me. He would have been better off believing his instincts. He’s not who he pretends to be, but what he doesn’t know is, neither am I.
Piquing his interest will be the easy part. Seducing him is necessary. But discovering who we both really are might make us realize the hardest truth, our futures were never really our own to begin with.
This is a stand alone contemporary romance, with NO CLIFFHANGER, and a bit of intrigue, secrets, and lies.
“This book was so unique and original. Cold is gripping, suspenseful, sexy, saddening and even shocking!
You will understand and sympathize with the characters… and fall for them from head to toe!
Nik and Arabella are sensational, sexy, intriguing and glide wonderfully together… but can that last? Can the feelings be real or are they a means to an end?!!!
I enjoyed this book from start to finish.” by TBOM
“Full of intrigue, suspense and an unexpected and unwanted romance.
Arabella has a plan and it involves Nikolai – son of a Russian mobster. Nikolai is cold and calculating, goes after what he wants and won’t stop until he gets it. He wants Arabella, which fits nicely into her plan. What she doesn’t expect is that she will fall for him.
Nikolai’s actions and behaviour sometimes come across as childish rather than alpha male. While he is portrayed as cold, underneath is someone who just wants affection for the man he is rather than for what he does and has.
Arabella’s calculating plan doesn’t count on her own feelings for him getting in the way or betrayals from elsewhere, keeping this a fast paced and an on the edge of your seat read.
This was excellently written, with a good pace, strong characters and the right balance between all the different elements. Melissa Silvey is an author I will be coming back to in the future.” by Lisa
