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?
*A Standalone HEA*
REVIEWED BY JILL
Savage Mafia Prince is the third book in A Dangerous Royals Romance series and it is all about the third Dragusha brother - Kiro. While all titles can be read as a stand-alone I highly recommend reading the books in order so you are more familiar with all the extenuating circumstances. While books one and two are more "mafia style" it was not so much the case with this one until the very end but the book was still a page-turner regardless of that missing element. As with the other two books in the series it does end with a HEA.
Ann Saybrook is a reporter that is going undercover at the Fancher Institute as a nurse to get the scoop on a meth story. Ann who is after something that doesn't pertain to Kiro in the least strikes up an unlikely friendship with the patient. She vents all her woes to Kiro and while he never responds she soon realizes he may be paying attention to her more than anyone thinks he is. While she can't openly inquire about Patient 34 without raising and red flags she tries to dig around for answers as to why he is kept drugged and restrained.
Kiro Dragusha also known as Patient 34 is being held at a mental health facility restrained to a bed under heavy sedation. While they think he is comatose they have no idea how fast his metabolism burns off the sedatives and he is actually aware of everything. Kiro was stolen from his family as a baby and then abandoned in the wilderness all because of who he is so he knows he is better off acting like the sedatives are working instead of finding answers.
This is one unique and compelling story that I could not put down. Romance, mystery, suspense and high drama all mixed together bring you one heck of a story. While this is the end of the Dragusha brother's trilogy I am hoping we see more from this family in the future :)
