Book Trailer for Grievous!
GRIEVOUS cover by LJ Anderson at Mayhem Cover Creations
Yasmeen Michaels’ first hours of life were spent nestled in a cloud of dirty blankets on the front stoop of an orphanage in the Bronx. Even though rejection and loneliness peppered her life, she still fought hard enough to step out of her past a free, independent woman with a bright future ahead of her. Darkness descends when a shocking ripple in the organized crime world sends a grieving Romanian mobster back into her life. Yasmeen wakes to find herself in a centuries-old castle in Romania; claimed not as Lucian Fane’s lover…but as his pet.
Lucian Fane is at ease in his place of power. He unapologetically lords over his business empire right alongside his criminal one. But when tragedy dares to cross his threshold, Lucian is sent into a tailspin and soon finds himself toeing the line between sanity and freedom. With his conscience gone, and in a bid to save his city from his wrath, he plucks an exquisite distraction from her world and tucks her away in his. Only then does he allow his demons free reign.
Even as Yasmeen once more finds herself fighting to hold onto her self-worth, the draw towards the darkness soon becomes too strong to resist. Will she be able to hold tight to her new owner as he freely drifts beyond her reach? Or will Lucian surface long enough to realize he’s pushing his precious pet too far to allow for forgiveness?

ATTN: I just want to offer a word of warning to those readers who aren’t aware of how GRIEVOUS will differ from the other Wanted Men books. Originally, this book was supposed to be a 25k word novella that offered a brief glimpse into what goes down when Lucian snatches Yasmeen and brings her to Romania for a week. But after I began, it turned into a front row seat to Lucian Fane’s rock bottom. What does that look like for a man who sits above even the most powerful organized crime figures in the world? Something dark, desperate, and a little insane. Have you ever made friends with the demons in your head? Lucian does. So, rather than a short novella, Grievous became a 92k word novel containing a Romanian mobster opening himself to his obsessive tendencies, a kidnapping, forced confinement (at least for a little while), elements of BDSM, graphic sex, dirty talk, mafia-related violence. And at the crux of it all, you have a beautiful art gallery assistant from the Hunts Point who isn’t afraid to play with her spoiled rich guy’s new invisible friends.
*There is NO HEA is this book. Not even close.
**The conclusion to Lucian and Yasmeen’s story is scheduled for release in the spring of 2017.
***Don’t worry if Grievous sounds unappealing to you; Vasily’s book is coming this winter and it will bring us back to New York and the Wanted Men you’ve come to know and love!

To a young Russian girl raised to respect and fear the Bratva, gaining the attention of a powerful sovietnik from a feared organization was a terrifying thing. A dangerous temptation Sacha Urusski had no hope of resisting. Predictably, Alekzander decimated her heart and left her bleeding…but with a precious reason to go on. When he prowls back into her quiet life, Sacha’s decision to run is immediate. But before she can, Alekzander offers a confession that fully absolves him of his sins. Rather than celebrate, Sacha is forced to acknowledge an alarming truth. She has now become the villain in their story. Will she survive when Alekzander discovers why?
Sixteen months ago, Alekzander Tarasov was forced to give up his chance at happiness by annihilating his relationship with his soulmate. Now, after accepting who he is and what lengths he’ll go to protect what belongs to him, he wants Sacha back.

With life-altering secrets and lies, disillusionment and broken faith enter a world where loyalty and trust reign. Will Alek and Sacha’s already damaged love be strong enough to survive? Or will it be a sense of duty that inexorably binds them together in the end?
