Weekend Writing Warriors for April 23


Welcome to the blog where a group of authors offer 8 – 10 lines of their work, for others to read and comment. When you have finished here, why not click on the link (www.wewriwa.com) and see what others are writing?

I am writing this on the last day of my holiday in Portugal. We have had a wonderful time (10 family members) and the sun has shone every day. I fly home tomorrow.

I am again taking a snippet from my latest book, The Russian Bride. Natasha has been drugged and kidnapped from her London home, after a man called Viktor killed her stepfather, Boris, in a gangland revenge killing. The small plane arrives in Russia.

Viktor’s face appeared as if through a fog as Natasha blinked at the bright lights. She was very stiff and a little overwhelmed, and two strong men lifted her from her seat and carried her down the steps of the private plane and into a waiting limousine. Viktor climbed in beside her and one of his bodyguards sat up front next to the driver.

He passed her a blanket. “Here, girl. You must be cold.”

Natasha found it hard to reconcile this courteous and more caring man with the one who had cold-bloodedly put a bullet through Boris’s forehead. She took the blanket from him and wrapped it around the thin clothes she had been wearing when she left home. Not only was she cold, but she was also in a state of shock, and perhaps Viktor realised that, for he stopped talking and the journey to wherever they were travelling was taken in silence.

So Natasha does not yet know where she is going and why.


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. Great ? – I can’t come up with the word I want. Where Viktor kills the man then turns around and offers her a blanket for comfort. You don’t know what to think? He’s evil. He’s human.

    Hope your flight home was safe and easy.

    1. He is a complex character. Yes, flight was good, although delayed because a family immediately behind me had to leave the plane because two children were ill. Eeek! Fingers crossed (for them and for me!) Thanks for tweeting.


  2. The gesture of offering the blanket could mean a variety of things from the practical–he doesn’t want her to get sick–to the calculating–have her think he has a nice side so she will start to trust him. A very complex character drawn with just that one gesture. Wonderful!
