In this searing stand-alone installment of the erotic Game Maker series, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole brings readers a tale of a man wracked with dark desires and the beautiful young woman who could sate him at last.
A madman with a shadowed past . . .
In the City of Sin, Dmitri Sevastyan finds her, Victoria Valentine—sexy, vulnerable, and in need of a protector. Obsession takes root deep inside him. Despite a history tainted with violation and betrayal, he will stop at nothing to possess her.
A grifter with nothing to lose . . .
Descended from a long line of con artists, twenty-four-year-old Victoria, a.k.a Vice, needs the score of a lifetime to keep her loved ones safe. She sets her sights on gorgeous and rich Dmitri Sevastyan. Even as the irresistible Russian toys with her body and mind, he tempts her heart.
Love is the ultimate wildcard.
When Vice and her associates maneuver Dmitri into a hasty Vegas wedding, he refuses to protect himself with a pre-nup, trusting her with all that he has. But can she trust him? As secrets unfold, the newlyweds share days of doubts and nights of the wickedest pleasures. Yet once Vice discovers her husband’s past, will she stay to fight for her marriage or cut her losses and run?
The Player by Kresley Cole
What’s better than a story about a wounded soul finding their other half…two wounded souls.
Sensuality oozes off the pages in the hot as heck erotic romance by Kresley Cole.
Victoria Valentine and her family are top notch con-artists (grifter). When her family is threatened by a cartel, Victoria (aka Vice) must find a con that will pay out enough to save her father from ruthless torture and death. The clock is ticking.
When Vice sets her sights on Dmitri Sevastyan, even her family was sure she’d fail. But he is taken hook, line and sinker. Pushed into a quick marriage, the couple secrets are slowly revealed. The more they learn about each other the harder it is for Vice to remember this is just a job.
Dmitri was everything you could ask for, brooding, intense, completely devoted, and emotionally scarred all wrapped up in an insanely hot as heck package.
Absolutely amazing twist and turns, Cole creates a story that sticks with you long after your through.
Although this is the last of the Sevastyan brothers story, I wouldn’t be opposed to further stories following these characters or maybe expanding to the grifters?
