Weekend Writing Warriors for March 26

I am again taking a snippet from my new book The Russian Bride. I have gone back in time by two years from the earlier snippets. Natasha arrived home from school to the home she shared with her mother and her mother’s lover, Boris, to find that all was not well.

She pushed open the door of the living room, and a feeling of dread came over her when she saw her mother cowering on the sofa, and Boris sitting in the chair with blood running from a wound on his forehead. In front of them stood three burly men, two in black leather jackets, and the third in a smart, dark grey suit. The first two were holding guns, which were pointed directly at Boris.

Natasha’s first instinct was to run, but one of the men anticipated that, and moved swiftly to shut the door behind her. He grabbed her arm and flung her towards her mother on the sofa, where Galina tried to calm her child.

“It’s alright, milaya, no need to be frightened.” Galina hadn’t called her daughter by this term of endearment since she was small, and it frightened Natasha even more. “These men have come to see your dad. Viktor is a business associate of his.” She always referred to Boris as Natasha’s dad, even though he was simply a man who lived in the same house as her, as far as he was concerned.


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.

It’s a beautiful, spring weekend in the UK right now. Tomorrow is both Mother’s Day and my sister’s birthday, so we are off to spend the day with almost the entire family, which I know I will enjoy. Aren’t I lucky? Hope you all have a great Sunday. Because of this I might be late with my comments.

  1. Yikes. She just walked in on something that’s about to change her life . . . and not for the better. Great dialogue for building the tension, Rachel.
