Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 27, 2016

Animal. Monster. Beast. That’s what they call Viktor Melikov, the man who hides in the dark … But even monsters need to be loved. The moment he sees the girl hired to dance for him, everything ceases to exist. It’s a feeling he’s unfamiliar with … and craves more than anything.

Alexis Kidd sells her body. Not because she wants to, but because she needs to. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to support her family and survive.

Now she must dance for a man hiding behind a veil.
But when the urge to take a look grows too strong … Alexis gets more than she bargained for.
More than Viktor was willing to give.

Inspired by a fairytale, VIKTOR is a standalone Contemporary Romance by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Clarissa Wild. 

Two types of books I am obsessed with: modern twists on Beauty and the Beast and mafia themed romances. Combine those things with Clarissa Wild as the author, and you have a sexy, dark, and twisty story that kept me hanging on to every word. "Viktor" tells the story of a desolate man living in self-imposed isolation and the headstrong beauty who comes into his life and turns it upside down.

 "I'm possessed by her. I don't know how else to describe it, but the moment she started dancing, I was hooked."

This author is great at creating complex, intriguing characters. Alexis is someone with a troubled past, who has had to fight to survive. She's had to sell her body to support herself and her sister, and she is far from a damsel in distress. She is fearless, knows how to take care of herself, and knows how to use her beauty to her advantage. Her main goal has always been to protect the only family she has left, which is how she ends up in Viktor's mansion. Viktor leads a life of solitude due to a horrific attack, and is accustomed to pushing others away in an attempt to protect himself. He doesn't believe himself to be a good person, and tries to project that image to anyone who crosses his path. Alexis is the first person to breach his walls, and although he doesn't want to be, he is drawn to her in a way he has never experienced before. The beginning of their relationship is turbulent, as the two of them are both stubborn in their own ways. The one thing they could not deny, however, is the intense pull between them that kept them coming back for more.

"It's his eyes...The way they look at me with complete and utter obsession is enchanting."

The build up between them was great, and when they eventually came together physically, it was explosive. They were so inexplicably drawn to each other, and it came out in every encounter. These were two people who have been shut off from love and feelings for so long that they didn't know how else to be. They were alike in more ways than they realized, and that especially came out when they became intimate. Once things got hot and heavy between them, they both realized that there was no going back.

"We're wasted on lust, on each other, not giving a f*** who we should be or what we should be doing."

 This story is full of suspense, as Viktor and Alexis are forced to battle outside threats in order to find their happiness. The plot was full of twists, making it far from the ordinary modern day fairy tale. There are secrets that come unraveled and dangers that threaten both of them. The author is great at romantic suspense, and I loved not knowing what was coming next. This was a thoroughly entertaining, suspenseful read that I recommend to anyone who likes a dark and sexy spin on fairy tales.

Unedited Excerpt 1  – Subject to change – Copyright 2016 Clarissa Wild

“Why am I still here?” she whispers as my hand disappears into her panties.
“Because you want me. Because you can’t leave.” I slide my fingers between her slit. Her folds are already wet for me, even before I’ve laid a hand on her. I grin against her skin, finally understanding why I want her so much. She needs it rough … and rough is all I am.
“You used this against me, Lexi …” I whisper in her ear. “Used your pussy as a tool to get information.”
“It wasn’t just that …”
“Show it to me then.”
The nightgown falls down to the floor, exposing her naked body right in front of the open window. But with no one around, neither of us cares. I’m going for the kill.
“Make me believe the lie that’s us,” I say, rubbing her clit.
“It’s not a lie …” she murmurs, her breaths coming out in short gasps.
“You only say that because my hand is around your throat,” I say, dipping my finger into her pussy. She gasps out loud as I go deep and swirl around inside her. “Because I own this pussy.”
“Fuck …” she moans.
I groan and then pull away, releasing her from my grip entirely. A confused Alexis turns around and props herself against the windowsill, her eyes pleading with me as I walk backward. My cock is hard, but my desire to know where we stand is much more urgent. Her legs draw together and she clutches her body as another draft enters through the window, her nipples peaking from the cold.
I can’t help biting my lip as I watch her become befuddled while I sit down on the chair on the opposite end of the room.
“Go on then …” I say, rubbing my bottom lip with my index finger. “Carry on with the little show you had going in my workroom.”
She stares at me for a few seconds before leaning back. Her eyes glance over her shoulder to the opened window. I wonder if she’s thinking what I’m thinking. If she’s hesitating … trying to decide whether to run or stay … if she wants me more than her freedom.
But then her eyes settle on me as I zip down my pants and pull out my cock.
There’s a gleam of desire in her eyes … one that makes me grab a hold of the base and say, “You want this? You can have it … after you show me you really want it.”
