Married to the enemy

When Keira O'Malley was a child, she used to picture her perfect wedding. The flowers. The dress. Her husband. But nothing could have prepared her for saying "I do" to Dmitri Romanov-cold, domineering, and always one step ahead of everyone else in the ever-shifting power plays of New York City. She agreed to his bargain to secure peace for her family, and she may want the bastard more than she'd ever admit, but she'll be damned if she'll make this marriage easy for him.

Dmitri knows better than to underestimate Keira for one second. Molten desire smolders between them, a dangerous addiction neither can resist. But his enemies are already on the move, and he needs every ounce of his legendary focus and control to keep them alive. Keira could just be his secret weapon-if she doesn't bring him to his knees first.

 

Explosively satisfying! We’ve been waiting for Dmitri’s story for so long, and it does not disappoint! From the very start of the series, we’ve been seeing mention of the evil Russian who was a thorn in the O’Malley family’s side throughout all of their business dealings. He’s been trying to get a foot in their door for a long time, and was going to be a constant threat until he got his way. Keira puts the family first and thrusts herself into his lair, but it doesn’t take her long to discover that there’s more to this Russian than she ever thought. Their journey is touching, as well as exciting. Great read!

Keira O’Malley will do anything to keep her family safe … even make a deal with the devil! She might be the youngest of the O’Malley siblings, but she’s been touched by the crime and trauma of their lifestyle just as much if not more as each of her siblings. She finally checked out of life a couple of years ago when one loss took her breath and her foundation away. Now if she has to marry Mr. Evil himself in the form of Dmitri Romanov, so be it … at least her siblings will have peace!

Russian Dmitri Romanov has been trying to get an “in” with the O’Malley family for years now, but keeps being foiled. When he set his sights on Keira, it became personal because she is unlike any previous conquest. She’s gotten underneath his skin without even trying to. He can see the broken soul that lives beneath the iron will and heated barbs she throws his way on a constant basis. It might still be all about business, but having this firecracker as his wife is going to be a delight if it’s the last thing he does!
