THE SAVAGE IS HERE.
“I LOVE this book. One of my absolute favorite reads of 2016. I want…no, I NEED my own savage!!!” ~USA Today bestselling author Natasha Knight
Where is Kiro?
He’s the lost Dragusha brother, heir to a vast mafia empire—brilliant, violent, and utterly savage…and he’s been missing for years.
I’m supposed to be doing simple undercover research at the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous, but I can’t keep my mind off Patient 34. He’s startlingly young and gorgeous, but it’s not just that. He’s strapped way too tightly to that bed. And there’s no name or criminal history on his chart. What are these people hiding? My reporter’s instincts are screaming.
Here’s the other thing: the staffers here believe he’s so sedated that there’s not a thought in his head, but I catch him watching me when nobody’s looking. Our connection sizzles when I enter the room. When our eyes meet, I know he understands me in a way nobody else ever has.
I’m supposed to follow my editor’s orders—I have secrets, too—but everything about Patient 34 is suspicious. How can I not investigate?
This is the first book I have read by Annika Martin. I didn’t realize that it was the third book in the Dangerous Royals series. Although I haven’t read the first two books I was easily drawn into Savage Mafia Prince and picked up the back story of the series right away.
Patient 34 is in the Fancher Institute, a hospital for the criminally insane. These patients are an absolute danger to society and beyond treatment. A Fancher patient will never gain their freedom or their sanity. They are a lost cause. When a ruined investigative journalist is planted within the Fancher Institute as a nurse to uncover a drug operation, she discovers something else. A patient that is not what he seems. He has managed to control his reactions to the intense drug regimen to control his violent actions. There’s a real person locked behind the blank stare and zombie like presence. She intends to find out more about Patient 34.
Patient 34 is the Dragusha son that has been missing for years. He is also the Savage Adonis that surfaced two years earlier and violently murdered the professor studying his savage behavior.
Kiro Dragusha was kidnapped as a baby. He was abandoned in the wilderness as a child. He was raised by wolves until he was discovered by civilization. Now he is a prisoner chained to a hospital bed. He is waiting for the moment to escape and return to the wilderness. The kind nurse may be his only chance for escape or the final lock on the chains that hold him to the bed.
Nurse Ann is more than a kind nurse. She is his salvation, she is his mate. When he escapes barely with his life, he takes Nurse Ann with him. Unbeknownst to him, Nurse Ann is his enemy, she is a journalist. The enemy that landed him in the Fancher Institute.
Kiro and Ann’s journey is more than an escape to the wilderness. It is a discovery of who they both are as individuals. It is also a discovery of who Kiro really is. Only Ann can help him. What he doesn’t realize is his real family has been searching for him. Is it the wolves or the Dragusha brothers that will claim their long lost brother?
This book had me glued to the pages. After reading this book I had to go back and read the first two books in the Dangerous Royals series. This series is captivating.
Start the series now!
They destroyed his family, stole his kingdom, hunted him to the ends of the earth.
Now the beautiful prince is back as a dark killer, ready to take everything.
And it starts with her.
Don’t look at me like that. So trusting.
Like you think I’m not a monster.
Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will.
Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by bloody piece, to save my brother.
I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have.
Because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died.
And when you look at me like that, I die again.
I spent years making myself invisible. A good girl, apart from the noise.
Then you returned, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit.
Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say.
But I remember your smile. And I remember those sunny days.
Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.
Before they told us the prince was dead.

Then you betrayed our mafiya family—the only family either of us ever knew.
Heartbroken, I did the honor killing. I threw you off a cliff.
When I learned you were innocent, it ripped me apart.Now, years later—somehow, impossibly—there you are, alive.
The nun who never shows her face, trapped on the other side of a computer screen.
How can it be? My brothers think I’m obsessed. Imagining ghosts. But I’ll always know you. And I’m coming for you.
