BEAST by Sam Crescent and Jenika Snow
Beast - Jenika Snow,Sam Crescent
Bridget runs to Beast for protection from her fiancé and his father.  Beast tells her there will be a price to pay.  Mostly their hearts.
 
I loved Beast.  He's MC all the way.  Bridget brings out a softer side to him.  As the tension in the story ratchets itself up so does the sex.  Hot! 
 
I look forward to reading more in the series.  Some good secondary characters whose stories I'd like to see.

just thought I would do a bit more of this, tonight - get Khristo entrenched in Paris, get a taste of what his new life will be like, who has he met in his new job; jazz, connections, Aleksandra, an unexpected reminder of life back in Bulgaria...

 

a heist to plan?? gold to be taken?? ah, Paris.

just coming out of the section featuring Khristo dropped into the Spanish Civil War, and the next part is called Paris, 1937. the whole book is so engrossing, the historical backdrop, and the spy games. happy!
