About this ebook

A family contract. A dark bargain. No escape.

Eleven years ago, I met him. A year later, I was betrothed to him. Now he’s come to claim me, slaughtering anyone standing in his way.

My husband-to-be is a monster from a family as ruthless and powerful as mine, a man who deals in violence and destruction... a man terrifyingly like my father. For over a decade, he’s stalked me, shadowing my life.

I fear him. I hate him. Worst of all, I want him.

My name is Alina Molotova, and Alexei Leonov is a fate I can’t escape.

Anna Zaires Molotov Family Saga continues with Alexie and Alina, two characters from the previous duet, Molotov Obsession.

Audiobook: Her voice pulled me into the story and her performance kept me engaged. She made these characters come alive. This was a dark and intense journey filled with suspense. This is a bit of a slow burn but the chemistry between this hero and heroine is undeniable throughout the story. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a little darkness with their romance. You’re going to love Alexei!

The tension between Alina and Alexei was thrilling and palpable! I wasn’t sure I was going to appreciate this author’s choice of storytelling device, but I realized it made me turn pages faster wanting to know what was going to happen next. I felt for Alina, and once she admitted the truth to herself I liked her even more. I loved Alexi’s determination and possessiveness, and I found it smoking hot! I definitely recommend this book!
