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. Three armed men are with her mother and Boris, and they are definitely not there to take afternoon tea. (The snippet is creatively punctuated, to fit into the 10 line rule.)
The man Galina called Viktor stared hard at Natasha, making her very uncomfortable. “Your daughter is very pretty.”
His eyes moved up and down from her feet to the top of her head, and her flesh crawled, but she didn’t know why. Galina clutched her daughter to her tightly, as though she knew the purpose of Viktor’s hard stare.
“You can have her; if you let me go, you can take her with you, and her mother too. Take them both,” Boris said.
Natasha recoiled with shock at what she was hearing, and her mother opened her mouth and gasped. Viktor actually smiled for the first time; a cruel, evil smile.
“Well, well, Boris, so you are willing to hand over your wife and child in return for your own skin, are you?”
“She’s not my daughter, and Galina is not my wife – take them both, I’m sick of having them around me.”
Boris is so not a likeable character, is he? The scene continues next time.
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?
