    good read and recommended wholeheartedly

    Known as the Goddess of Milan, top model Vries St. John ruled the runways representing the House of Girasol. Vries however was more than that; she was also an assassin working for a secret government agency. Her next target was the gorgeous Russian billionaire Lyov Azhikelyamov, the ex-husband of Pasha the owner of the House of Girasol.

    Billionaire Lyov Azhikelyamov, or Leo, wanted Vries for his very own but could never convince her to be with him. Her working for his ex-wife Pasha complicated things because Vries did not like complications at work. Little did he know that Vries would be spending a lot of time with him as his secret bodyguard.

    The Lion in Russia was the type of story that captured your interest from the start. The characters of Leo and Vries were likeable and I knew that once these two got together there would be fireworks. I liked that the story wasn’t just about sex and that these two faced real danger from someone who wanted Leo dead. I loved his reaction when he found out who Vries really was, that she was more than just a pretty face. He wasn’t happy about her duplicity and he wanted her gone even though his heart wanted her to stay. Vries took her assignment seriously and now that the danger to Leo was more real, there was no way he was getting rid of her.

    When I read a story I am always drawn to female characters that are no nonsense, and Vries was lethal. The author didn’t just want you to see a tough, hardened character; so she created a character that could hold her own but was also vulnerable, which softened her. The supporting characters, Pasha, Lelia and especially Derringer were entertaining and helped fill out the story. I loved the character of Derringer; it was always interesting when he made an appearance. All in all, The Lion in Russia was a really good read and one that I would recommend wholeheartedly.

    Roslyn has done it again. Weaving romance and I do mean hot sex

    Roslyn has done it again. Weaving romance and I do mean hot sexual romance into a great story. From the time Leo entered the picture and kissed Vries without saying a word you knew there was a story there. Who wouldn't want someone that they're attracted to, to let the world know? The story was woven in such a way that Vries a strong woman stayed strong even after Leo discovered that she was hired to protect him, and accused her of falsifying her feelings. Great writing
