    "He made her feel cherished."

    “His to Defend” is a brilliantly written book with an intoxicatingly, exquisite storyline that mesmerizes the reader into believing that love is there for the taking and that dreams really do come true. Rhenna Morgan is an exceptional writer and her originality shines through on every page. Sergei is the perfect book boyfriend because he is mysterious, sexy, passionate and very romantic when it comes to his pursuit of Evie. He had been watching her for awhile but never chose to make the first move. He knew that she was the one for him and he was confident that someday she would be his. He is a ruthless businessman who always gets his way, but he also has a nurturing and soft side when it comes to Evie’s son, Emerson, who is the most important person in her life. Evie is hardworking, smart, determined and is not afraid to ask for help. When her son’s education was in peril, she didn’t hesitate when it came to confronting Sergei with her request. She found herself a bit flustered and tongue tied when she was in his presence and Sergei’s sexiness and smoldering eyes were almost too much to take. Evie had never shied away from hard work and would take any job, even if it left her beholden to Sergei. Evie sensed he desired her because she could see it in his eyes, and she felt that a little flirtatious bantering couldn’t hurt, because he was impossible to resist.

    Contemporary Russian Mafia Romance

    His to Defend by Rhenna Morgan NOLA Knights #1 Smiling as I write this. Why? Because this book brought a bit of sunshine into my day just as Evette brought more than a little of it into Sergei’s. Sure...Sergei Petrovyh is creating his own “family” Russian Mafia style in New Orleans so he is not all sugar and spice...definitely more spice than sugar BUT he is a man I could definitely understand. His backstory made him who he was and his desire for something “else” brought him to New Orleans to create it. Meeting Evette and having her ask him for help might have been the first step in their dance but the two had definitely been eyeing one another for some time before she asked him to help her find a job. Evette is loved by those in her community. She is a single mother raising seven year old Emerson and doing the best she can. Her parents died much too soon and it was not easy for her. The one true friend she has is Dorothy, her mother’s best friend. She works hard, is frugal and hopes to one day pursue the dreams she had before the loss of her parents and arrival of her son. Taking the step she did to reach out to someone known to be dangerous wasn’t easy but it seemed right at the time and over time...following her gut was definitely the best decision she ever made. Sergei had a tough childhood but managed to accidentally fall into the right hands...hands that helped him move from a bad situation to one where he found family in the Russian mob. As one of the favors from his Pakhan he was given the opportunity to set up his own family and he chose to do so in New Orleans. He knows he is dark and that bringing someone so bright, cheerful and filled with light into his life might not be wise but then...when is it always the best thing to be wise? This story sizzled. It made me care and want to find out how the two would end up finding their HEA. There were no bumps in the road or big kerfuffles but there were some issues to be addressed before the two finally did settle in together. Some may not like the dominant alpha male that Sergei is but I am one reader who enjoys MC and Mafia romances so this was a good fit for me. I also have read all of the Haven series and was eager to read Sergei’s story...and...now want to find out about the men in his “family” and who they will end up with. Did I like this book? Yes Would I like to read more by this author? Definitely Thank you to NetGalley, Carina Press and the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    An enjoyable, engrossing read

    The key aspect for me, for any good book is character development and Rhenna once again did not disappoint at all. For me this is a well-crafted story, enough of everything a little drama, a little action, a little humour, a little emotion just enough of everything the keep the story moving without getting bogged down into anything. A feel good book at the end of the day and you want to know what happens to all the characters in it. I’m looking forward already for the next instalment. If you like your heroes and heroines strong and not backward in coming forward in what they want the most for themselves and others. If you like a character driven book with a touch of dark drama, a few little hurdles to conquer and romance to sink your teeth into, this is the book for you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    My kind of mafia book!

    This was 100% my kind of mafia book. I like that dark, anti-hero who still behaves honorably and protects what is his at all costs. To me, that's the perfect bad boy persona, that right amount of balance between dark and light. The minute Sergei was introduced in the Haven Brotherhood series I knew I wanted his story. He's one of those characters that captures you from the start and holds you captive. Despite his hard exterior, he never once treated Evette badly. Nothing will win me over faster than that. As heroines go, Evette was a great mix of sweet and strong. She's a single mom who has lost a lot in her life and yet she never let that dim her light. She's outgoing, friendly, well loved and has a backbone. She was the perfect match to Sergei. I really like that Sergei was honest with her about what kind of man he was and what he has done. I also really like that Evette took that seriously. She didn't just blindly follow. She thought things through and trusted her instincts. This couple was such a pleasure to read about. We got quality time of them together and they never behaved immaturely or rashly. No unnecessary drama here. I truly can't wait to see what this author brings us next in the series.
