Everything comes with a price. Kolya Boykov isn't afraid to die-he's already been dead for a long time. All it takes is one look at her from across the bar, and Kolya comes to life again. She's fragile and beautiful and caged. Taking her was the last thing he should have done, but he's never wanted anything like he wants Maya. As the son of a Bratva boss, no one can stop him from having her. Maya Kozlov wishes she was invisible-mistreated and unloved, they never let her forget it. All it takes is a few words from him, and Maya's life is turned upside down all over again. He's cold and harsh and terrifying. She should have run the first chance she could, but that's the thing about Kolya; he makes her want to stay. As the unwanted daughter of a dead man, she just wants to be happy. There's only one problem. It's more than just Kolya who wants to keep Maya forever. Family, legacy, and the mafia ... nothing will stand in their way. The cost of this betrayal is high. What will be the price? *Note: Fractured Ties is a standalone Boykov Bratva mafia romance.
