Revisit Nancy Haviland’s bestselling mafia series with this prequel novel featuring a Russian mobster who is forced to put vengeance aside in order to please the Pakhan he calls father.
He sees her. He falls. He proves it by killing for her in a room full of his associates. Now he’ll take her home and try to convince her a love that descends like a hammer is one that can last a lifetime.
She sees him. She stumbles. She proves her sophistication by fainting, then comes to in a Russian mobster’s compound. Now she’ll protect herself while experiencing all the things she’s been denied her entire life.
**This novel is a prequel to A Love of Vengeance (Wanted Men #1) but can be read as a standalone.**
If you ever wondered where the Wanted Men began then you are in luck. Vengeance Aside is the beginning of an obsession of mine. I can never get enough of this world Nancy Haviland has created. As with every book in this series, this book's characters are so dynamic and complex. They are bigger than real life. The plot is enthralling and never repetitive or boring.
In this book we have an alpha male falling hard for a broken yoga instructor. This odd pairing made for such a great read. Dale who had some serious depths to her didn't just fall at Lukas's feet in love, puddle of goo maybe, but not love. She makes him work at it all the while she undergoes an amazing personal growth. The plot is engrossing and I had to read it all in one sitting. Even though this was a shorter book the romance didn't feel rushed. This author has a gift for making things fit together. I very highly recommend this book to any who love a hot passionate mafia romance.
