She was right.

Merciless Vows, the first in the all-new Blood and Thorns Duet from Faith Summers is available now!

When I was sixteen a gypsy fortune teller told me my future held darkness and death.
She was right.
But what she didn’t tell me was the devil himself would rise from hell in the form of Lucca Dyshekov and take everything from me with a gun held to my head.

He’s the Bratva assassin they all call Merciless.
On our wedding day he taught me real monsters aren’t the ones who hide in the dark.
They’re the ones who stare you in the face and steal your soul.

On a quest for revenge, he takes me and unearths secrets from the past that will cause a war.
When death lies on the horizon the enemy of my enemy becomes my friend.
In this instance, he’s my husband.
The real question is when he finishes uncovering the truth, will he keep me or kill me.

Excerpt

We stare at each other for what feels like forever, and my nerves spike with every second that passes. 

The way he looks at me makes me uncomfortable. It’s with an air of fascination that makes me wonder if it was he I lost my virginity to. 

Annoyingly, the thought sends a shiver of arousal through me, and the weight pulls on my core. 

There’s an attraction between us I don’t want to accept, especially after last night. And this morning.

Yet, as I stare at him, I can’t help but wonder how we would have met if my father didn’t know I knew him.

How close were we?

I have so many questions, ones I feel he won’t answer, 

 “Go on, Printsessa,” he urges with a cocky smile that should be as illegal as he is. “Ask me. I don’t want my bride’s head to explode with all those questions she has swirling around in there.” 

Him calling me his bride makes me cringe. 

“Why do you want to marry me? What sort of business benefit is there in marrying me?” 

“Business benefit?” He inclines his head, and his hair drifts over his shoulder. The fading sunlight captures the lighter hints of brown in the dark mass of wild hair.

“You don’t love me, so don’t play with me. Tell me the truth. You’re marrying a woman who has no memories beyond the last two and a half years. I think I deserve some explanation.” 

He looks like he’s considering it. When he sets his shoulders back, my hopes rise. 

“You fit in with my plans,” he answers. 

“What plans?”

“Those don’t concern you.” 

“How don’t they concern me? You have access to my whole life. This is wrong. You know it is.” 

“Right and wrong are shades of gray that people manipulate to take whatever form they want. This is mine.” 

I shake my head. “I don’t want to marry you.”

“You don’t have a choice, and if I were you, I wouldn’t create problems. Your father wasn’t joking when he told you to do as you’re told. You need to. If you don’t create problems, you won’t have a problem with me.” 

He touches my cheek, and my body instantly betrays me. 

The memory of his face comes into my mind, along with a kiss—the one from last night and another from before. That was the one I dreamt about. 

“Where do I know you from?” 

“I told you, you shouldn’t try and remember me.” 

“Why? You’re the only thing I remember,” I confess, and as the words leave my lips, I regret it. I don’t think I should have told him that. 

“Is that so? How unfortunate for you.” He backs away. 

“You said you wouldn’t hurt me.” 

“I guess I must have lied.”

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

They have a past, but only one of them can remember it. He’s saved her before and whether he meant to or not, he’s saving her again.

Aria De Marchi has no idea that she is a pawn in her father’s life. A tragic event left her with no memory of her earlier years. She was close to graduating from Berklee where she attended on a scholarship. The trouble is, she can’t remember her talent or what her life was like before tragedy struck. She only knows what people tell her, and it doesn’t help her get her memory back.

He’s lost so much in his life, and it has made him the man he is today. A Vor in the Bratva, Lucca is a man who is feared by many and respected by those in the Bratva that helped him gain the power he has, with the exception of one man, a man that isn’t even Russian and has no ties to the Bratva, other than his friendship with the Pakhan.

I really liked this story. It has twists and turns as well as many secrets that could destroy many, or could get them killed for knowing them or speaking them. Aria and Lucca have a relationship based on secrets and lies and they could destroy anything they might try to build. Lucca is out for revenge and wants to take the one precious thing in the life of his enemy, however, his revenge could be a saving grace for Aria. This story grabbed me from the beginning and held on until the end, which left me wanting more. I give this story a 5-star review and am looking forward to book 2 in the duet. If you are a reader that enjoys dark, dangerous made men, stories with a lot of secrets and danger, then you will enjoy Merciless Vow.
