Everyone fears the Master…

Rich, irresistible politician/Mafya boss Maksimilian Sevastyan prefers tall, obedient blondes to fulfill his… complicated desires. That is, until the icy Russian encounters a disobedient brunette whose exquisite little body threatens his legendary restraint.

Except her.

Catarina Marín was a well-off young wife until her world fell apart. Now she’s hiding out, forced to start working as an escort in Miami. Her very first client is beyond gorgeous, but when he tells her what he plans to do to her, Cat almost walks out of the door.

If pleasure is a game, play to win.

After their mind-blowing encounter burns out of control, the lovers crave more. If they escape the deadly threats surrounding them, can Maksim overcome his past—to offer Cat his future? Only then will she tempt him with what he really wants: her, all tied up with a bow.

First Sentences

Mi madre must be turning over in her grave right now.

As I rode the elevator to the penthouse of the ritzy Seltane Hotel – it’d taken two staffers to key me up to the fortieth floor – I chewed on a fingernail.

My thoughts

Cole’s main character here Cat was a treat to read. From the very first time that she came onto the pages I loved her sassiness. To my delight her sass becomes one of my favourite parts of her personalities. In comes Maksim, calm and in control and when he meets the sassy Cat it’s like a house on fire.

This is the second book in the series, and it was just as hot as the first. Cole does a great job in flushing out these unique characters through complicated situations. And her books aren’t just about romance, there’s also a sense of action with the secondary plot.

I loved how Cat’s sassy Latina side came out to play and was the perfect against Maksim’s cold exterior. But that quickly melted away and revealed a mouth-watering alpha male. This was a fun read after the first book and I can really say that this got me out of my reading funk. Happy reading!
