Having believed for five years that his wife and daughter are dead, Alexandr Novikov’s world changes forever when he discovers not only are they alive, but the vile person who tore his family apart was none other than his father, Jorg.Determined to make up for lost time, Alex sets about winning the hearts and trust of his wife and daughter, and healing the emotional damage done to Jessica by their forced separation. Easier said than done when jealousy rears its ugly head, and Jessica struggles to deal with all the women Alex was intimate with after her supposed death.
Jessica has prayed for a chance to reunite with Alex, to be the family they were meant to be, to reclaim and rebuild their relationship. Those prayers are finally answered, but she quickly realizes her husband still sees her as the naïve twenty-year-old girl she used to be, the one who was content to let him run the show. Jessica’s grown up during their difficult time apart, and she’s no longer content being a piece of arm candy for her powerful husband. If he’s going to bring her back into the deadly world of the Russian mafia, Alex needs to realize that she’s strong enough to be his partner in name and in truth. Only as equals will they find courage enough to face the days ahead.
Especially since Jorg isn’t done meddling with their lives…and his latest actions will have deadly consequences for generations to come.
This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.
After being left hanging at the end of Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive, I absolutely couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book.
Alex and Jessica’s relationship has always been special but Jessica has done things on her own and in fear for a long time. To Alex she hasn’t changed except for aging and her hair color.
Jessica has always known he was alive and her husband so she hasn’t strayed from her wedding vows. On the other hand Alex thought she was dead, he was a widower, and had several affairs. None serious for him, but Jessica will have to come to terms with her jealousy over these women. She has also grown into a very strong woman, something Alex will have to deal with.
Alex is now a father to a four year old, and I truly loved the interactions between Tatiana and him. He will learn some truths about children really quick. *evil chuckle*
We meet up with all our favorites in this book, Ivan & Gia, Dimitri & Rya, Nico & Catrine, Krom, Maks and a surprise visit from Beach & Sarah!
Let me say now that this is the hottest of all the Submissive Wish books. There is a lot of kinky, smoldering hot scenes so make sure you have plenty to drink and maybe a fan and some ice to keep cool.
Lots of tears, lots of laughter, suspense and OMG scenes.
I can’t wait to see what Ann has in store for us in the next book in this series. I can see some possibilities but I know she will surprise us all.

5 Contented Purrs for Ann!
With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she’s weird, and that sarcasm doesn’t translate well via text.
