The Game Maker, #1)
Author: Kresley Cole
Publisher: Pocket Star
Release date: December 16, 2013
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes The Professional—the first scorching installment in her Game Maker series, an erotica collection that has readers asking: How hot is too hot?
He makes the rules . . .
Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.
Rules are made to be broken . . .
PhD student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures. With every day she spends under his protection, she falls deeper under his masterful spell.
Are you ready to play?
Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy’s reach, Aleksandr spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-wealthy in Paris, the two lovers will discover that even their darkest—and most forbidden—fantasies can come true . . .
Why I'm waiting: I've been a huge fan of Kresley Cole ever since I first picked up Kiss of a Demon King back in 2009. I'm obsessed with her Immortals After Dark series so when I heard that she was releasing a new series (very soon), I couldn't be more excited! Her world building and story telling never fails to sweep me away into another magical realm, so I definitely can't wait to read The Professional. I'm also excited for this one because it's not exactly Paranormal; it's... I guess Contemporary Romance/Suspense/Erotica so... I'm curious and excited to see how Cole delivered this one!
So, that's what I'm anxiously waiting for this Wednesday! What are you waiting for? Leave a comment below and dish it out! I can't wait to see everyone's picks!
