Where is Kiro?He’s the lost Dragusha brother, heir to a vast mafia empire—brilliant, violent, and utterly savage…and he’s been missing for years.
I’m supposed to be doing simple undercover research at the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous, but I can’t keep my mind off Patient 34. He’s startlingly young and gorgeous, but it’s not just that. He’s strapped way too tightly to that bed. And there’s no name or criminal history on his chart. What are these people hiding? My reporter’s instincts are screaming.
Here’s the other thing: the staffers here believe he’s so sedated that there’s not a thought in his head, but I catch him watching me when nobody’s looking. Our connection sizzles when I enter the room. When our eyes meet, I know he understands me in a way nobody else ever has.
I’m supposed to follow my editor’s orders—I have secrets, too—but everything about Patient 34 is suspicious. How can I not investigate?
*A Standalone HEA*
Book three in the Dangerous Royals Romance series is where we finally find Kiro, the missing baby brother who is now in his 20’s. We find him in the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous where he is heavily drugged and sedated. He is found by Ann, who is a reporter working undercover as a nurse focusing on another story when she finds patient 34 and realizes something does not add up. His records are mostly blank and she can feel an awareness around him. She knows there is a big story, but will she be able to solve the puzzle before it is too late?
I loved the way the connection between Ann and Kiro was described and how she was determined to get answers for him. I really enjoyed the descriptions of how Kiro adapted to living in the woods all those years ago. The story moved pretty fast since I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see who would catch up to them first, Lazarus or Alekso and Viktor. Unfortunately I felt like there was something missing when the brothers got together. So much of the story was focused on Kiro and Ann that there was not much about the brothers getting together. Since I really loved Alekso and Viktor, I missed them in this book. I really hope there will be a book 4 where we see the brothers together.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
