Weekend Writing Warriors for March 26


It’s that time of the week again for Weekend Writing Warriors, a time when writers share a snippet of their work for the comments and critique by other writers. When you have read my piece, I hope you will follow the link (www.wewriwa.com) to read other posts.

I am contining from my forthcoming book, The Russian Bride, which will be out on March 8. After James find Natasha looking lost and alone in a car park, he feels sorry for her and takes her for something to eat.

The food arrived promptly and Natasha set about it with gusto. James wondered when she had last eaten a hot meal. He studied her while she was engrossed in the food. Apart from his initial assessment of her background, based on her voice, it was clear that the dress she was wearing, although now grubby and dishevelled, had once been an expensive buy, the sort of dress that one or two of the more exclusive boutiques in town would sell. She wore no jewellery or wedding ring. Perhaps she had already sold any valuables for food, or perhaps it had been stolen from her? She was probably only around twenty, although he found it difficult to tell women’s ages these days, now that there were so many ways of maintaining one’s youthful looks. She was around five foot six and had a slim build. Probably too thin for my taste, he thought; then quickly dismissed it from his mind. This was purely a mercy mission, his own personal tastes didn’t matter.


Having begun helping Natasha, will James be able to walk away from her, or will he want to help her further?

I have now had the cover art (below). I hope you like it.




Natasha, a Russian-born woman living in London, catches the eye of Viktor, a middle-aged Russian gangster. He wants her as his wife, the mother of his son, and his submissive partner in the kinky sex he enjoys at his isolated home near Saint Petersburg. But he doesn’t ask her to accompany him – he just takes what he wants.

Surprisingly, Natasha begins to accept her new life. Is she really a natural submissive, or has Viktor brainwashed her? Viktor is adamant that he will not have sex with her until they are married, but he shows her just how kinky he likes it by taking her to orgies held by his friend, and tells her that this is the type of life she can expect as his wife.

Everything turns sour, however, and on a visit to London, Natasha has to flee for her life – where businessman, James Miller, comes to her aid. Over the course of the next few days, Natasha tells James her story, and as horrified as he is, he cannot deny his attraction to the beautiful young woman. He vows to help her.

Neither of them realize quite how much danger they will be in for defying Viktor, but James is willing to risk everything to rescue her from this man. Can he do it? And does Natasha return his feelings?

Publisher’s Note: This fast-paced tale contains explicit themes including power exchange, capture, multiple sexual partners and discipline. If such material offends, please do not purchase.

    1. Thank you Charmaine. Glad you like the cover. My books are so far all in ebooks only – but I warn you, they are all very ‘naughty’. If you’re going to try one, go for The Artist, which is relatively mild!

      The link for your Amazon review is


  1. Intriguing story line, draws you in…
    One small suggestion: …as horrified as he is, his animal/electric/primeval attraction to this beautiful young girl is undeniable….perhaps…
    or…his undeniable attraction to this beautiful young girl leaves him no option…

    just thoughts in passing..I like the cover and am intrigued by the plot possibilities..!!


  2. Love the cover, Rachel. This excerpt, while showing much about her, shows his character, too. Always great for a passage to do double duty. We see his observation and assessment of her attire. Very nice.
