Devyn O’Neil, princess of the Irish Mob, was raised to know her place. Marrying a man of her father’s choosing has always been her fate. Yet, she never imagined that one day she’d play the part of a pawn between men on the verge of war. She never dreamed she’d be betrothed to a Russian badman.
Timofei Vetrov, son of New York’s Bratva king, grew up to be a bad boy prince. Taking for granted his life of privilege, he scoffed at the rules and did as he pleased. When the Irish murdered his mother, her death changed everything. He never dreamed he’d one day be king. He never imagined such a loss would thrust him into the role of a real man. A marriage, meant to unite the Irish with the Russians and forge a bond of peace, soon becomes much more. The fathers that bind them together cannot foresee the strength that Timofei and Devyn can uncover in their union. Together, their love has the potential to change the game entirely—yet it is a force that can only be reckoned with once found.
Ok I really have to take some time off and go back and read some of the series that I have really enjoyed, including the Russian Bratva series by Hayley Faiman. Betrothed To The Badman is the eighth book in this series and if my memory is right there is only one more book to go in the series and I am so sad to see this one end soon.
When you have sort of watched characters develop over many books you sort of begin to feel a familiarity with them, a connection if you will. That is how I felt about Timofei. The way he is with Devyn was both refreshing and perfect. Let’s face it some of the guys have been well, assholes to put it simply, and while Timofei isn’t an angel he was better than a lot of the other men have been. I liked how Devyn had an idea about what she was going into, I think that helped them both.
Betrothed To The Badman is another great addition to this series and one that I really enjoyed and recommend.
I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.
Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
