Radimir Zalesky has only ever known darkness. His choices have always been simple–live or die. Saved by the Russian mob, he is now the embodiment of a Bratva solider. Yet, in spite of the cold, hard world in which he finds himself, he dreams of what he knows he does not deserve. Light.
Emiliya Chekova was born a printsessa, daughter to the infamous Ivan Chekov. Her life has been out of her hands for as long as she can remember, her only option to obey. When her father’s betrayal to the Bratva ends in death, she is a possession passed on to another–now owned by a badman.
Resolute to submit to her fate, Emiliya endeavors to be the light Radimir craves–but his demons are not so easily seduced. Thrust into the heart of a dangerous world in which Radimir resides, Emiliya discovers the cost of love, learning just how far she’s willing to go to keep it.
