From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes The Professional, an erotica collection that has readers asking: How hot is too hot?

He makes the rules . . .
Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.

Rules are made to be broken . . .
PhD student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures. With every day she spends under his protection, she falls deeper under his masterful spell.

Are you ready to play?
Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy’s reach, Sevastyan spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-wealthy in Paris, the two lovers will discover that even their darkest—and most forbidden—fantasies can come true…

Let me start off by saying that Kresley Cole is one of my favorite PNR authors, so when I saw this and found that it was a thriller romance with a little BDSM thrown in, I was ALL FOR IT! Not only was I captivated from beginning to end, I let out a deep breath when I found out that Part 2 and Part 3 were already out! I’m not sure what I would have done if I had to wait. She was killing me at the end of Part 1 and 2. There were some of the hottest sex scenes that I have ever read packed in to this gem, and as soon as I finished I immediately craved more of the sexy Sevastyan!

“This was supposed to punish you, to punish me. But you fucking love it. You need it, even if you don’t know how badly.”

I’m officially addicted to The Game Maker series! I can’t get enough! The characters are amazing. I can’t look away from the pages or else I think I will miss something. This has me so engaged, and I love it! I’m invested in the storyline, in the characters, in this tough love situation they have themselves in.

“There is a need inside me — it’s like a beast that howls. I need to do things to you. I need to control you, command you, punish you. In order to madden you.”

The Game Maker Series by Kresley Cole is one of the HOTTEST series I have ever read! The Professional is a drop everything now, MUST READ! I can’t say enough good things about this. I am so glad Kresley Cole gave the story of The Professional to us. This is one of those series that you will want to read over and over again. I just hope that Ms. Cole does not stop there. There is more to Sevastyan’s past and I am DYING to know more! I bet we haven’t seen the last of him!

“I’m going to push you tonight, Natalie. To determine whether this is truly what you need. You’ll be given three tests, and if you pass them, this life will be yours as you desire it.”

The Professional Part 1-3 was intense, ridiculously sexy, and thrilling the entire way through. There was never a dull moment and most of the sex scenes had me in a whirlwind of lust and emotion. I wanted this story to go on and on, and when it ended I was distraught. All three parts were short in length but packed a punch in the plot department. With a lot going on you didn’t know what to think, and when each part ended you were left breathless. For those of you just starting this series, be very happy, because you would have had a very hard time waiting for the next one to come out. What a way to start off the New Year with such a fantastic erotic story. All three parts were Top Picks for me, and I highly recommend this series!

About Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the electrifying Immortals After Dark paranormal series and the young adult Arcana Chronicles. She has also written five award-winning historical romances.

Since her first novel was released in 2003, Kresley has published nineteen books with Simon & Schuster and has seen her releases translated into more than eighteen foreign languages. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Queensland area of Australia.

Cole’s trademark action, sensuality, and humor are exemplified in her popular Immortals After Dark Series, which revolves around the Lore, a secret stratum of hundreds of immortal creatures–ranging from Vampires to Lykae, Furies to Shifters, and Fey to Valkyrie–that each have their strengths, weaknesses, and age old prejudices against the others. Though they secretly live among humans, they constantly war among themselves, which gives her a lot of material.

In 2007, Kresley won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King. In 2010, Kiss of a Demon King earned Kresley her second RITA award. 2011 brought Cole her second #1 NYT bestseller with Dreams of a Dark Warrior.

She lives in Florida with her husband and far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water.

  3. This is the first I’ve heard of this Author, but after reading your excerpt I can’t believe I haven’t heard of her sooner. These books sound awesome! I’ll have to look her up on Amazon!

  4. A Hunger Like No Other because that’s the book that introduced me to KC.
    I really, really, REALLY hope I win this. Been eying/drolling over this series since it was released.

  5. My favorite book is A Hunger Like No Other though I did love Lothaire A LOT. I think it’s just because I loved Lachlain so much that his book still remains my favorite. Thanks for the chance!
