Series: Mercenary Socialites #1
Author: Setta Jay
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 16 August 2018
A crown princess living a dangerous double life and a sinfully sexy Russian billionaire with a ruthless penchant for collecting secrets: a match set for disaster.
For years, one man has ruled Sophia’s fantasies. The harmless obsession keeps her warm on the nights her double life starts to take its toll. She, unfortunately, gains his attention at the worst possible moment, when she’s in the middle of a dangerous job. Now, she’ll be forced to protect her heart along with her life of lies.
Viktor has been tempted by the innocent princess’s lust-filled glances for far too long, and he has fought hard to resist her beauty. When her secrets finally draw him in, getting through her royal guard proves a minor inconvenience. But one sexually charged night isn’t enough. He wants more, including whatever she’s hiding beneath that demure façade.
As much as Sophia wants Viktor, she can never fully allow him in because her secrets aren’t her own. Viktor is determined to have all of his princess. Will they find a way to be together, or will her dangerous secrets tear them apart?
Add it on Goodreads!
With all attention currently off her, she raised her glass again and allowed her gaze to drift in Viktor’s direction. She held the glass suspended at her lips as their eyes connected. Even with the distance and his dimly lit seating area partially obscuring her view, she felt a shot of electricity slide over her skin, sending tingles of awareness coursing through her body. How was that kind of chemical attraction even possible? She’d lusted after him for years, but to be on the receiving end of his bold appraisal was something very different and far too enticing.
It made her crave something she couldn’t have.
Viktor was seductive in a way no man should be. He lounged in a chair, his long legs stretched before him, and all she could think about was climbing over those strong thighs and straddling him before ripping his shirt open and using his body. It didn’t matter that he was surrounded by men and women, to whom he paid no attention, or that armed, tattooed guards stood at the private stairs going to his section and beside his leather seat.
She groaned mentally.
Having him in her sphere was rapidly becoming a harsh lesson in frustration. The space between their VIP alcoves could have spanned an ocean, and they’d have been more likely to interact. There was enough firepower between his guards and her own to ensure their worlds could never collide.
A “prim” princess of a small country and a ruthless Russian billionaire with a dark history—it was definitely not a match for the storybooks.

Getting into this book I have many expectations and let me tell you that I wasn’t disappointed!
Sophia is the Crown Princess of Porenza. She’s not your common Princess; she’s living a double life, a dangerous one. This was one of the things that made me read the book. The fact that we have a Princess that works for a mercenary organisation as a leading character it’s an interesting change!
Sophia’s obsession and attraction to Viktor made her a life more complicated and is a nice addition to the story. Viktor is the definition of Tall, Dark and Handsome. He’s a dark and dangerously sexy billionaire with a history that hints his ruthless ways. Since he turned 18, he became the legal guardian of his little brother Feliks, who attended the same boarding school as Sophia.
Sophia is an extremely intelligent woman, one that is often underestimated. The way her brother and mother treats her is hideous and cold; I was so glad when she was finally free of them! Her chemistry with Viktor is sizzling hot. Every time they are in the same room, sparks fly and their bodies collide instantly. They both have secrets, even though Sophia is the more reluctant about revealing them. Things are going on behind both their backs and the dangerous double life Sophia is leading, will catch up with her soon enough.
Wrapping up my review I really loved the book. Sophia and Viktor’s story is so interesting and got me hooked from the start! I really looking forward to the next books 😀
