BLOG TOUR: Savage Mafia Prince by Annika Martin

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?

4.5 Stars

If you’ve been following this mafia family saga from the beginning, then you’ve probably been as intrigued about the third Dragusha brother as I have, and now Kiro finally gets his story.

Ann Saybrook, 29, is a down on her luck journalist, struggling with her own issues while undercover at a mental institution in Minnesota. But she might be on to a bigger story than the one she’s assigned once she encounters Patient 34.

Kiro Dragusha, 21, has no idea that he’s the long lost link to fulfilling an old mafia prophecy, that he has a criminal empire at his disposal, or that he has two powerful brothers searching desperately for him. All he wants it to return to his life in the wilderness with the wolves…and to take his mate, Nurse Ann, along.
“Caveman and captive is a good role-play fantasy, but this role-play is moving into reality with alarming speed, and cavewoman is not my preferred lifestyle.”
Told via Ann and Kiro’s alternating first person POV (as well as a few other familiar voices) Savage Mafia Prince is an action-adventure romantic suspense. Like the previous books in this series, it pulls you in till you can’t put it down.

Kiro is probably everything readers have imagined and more. He’s fast. He’s fierce. He’s intense. He’s determined. No matter the obstacle, he’s not to be stopped.
“It’s a dress rehearsal for sucking his cock—we both know it.”
Oh yeah, and he’s savagely sexy too! A blend of the Incredible Hulk along with “Paul Bunyan meets GQ,” you’ll want your own alpha savage who’s devoted to you.  (That little rhyme was totally unintentional but hey it would make a great motto for Kiro!)  Major point for originality with this character. If you are tired of reading the same romantic heroes, then this is a must read for uniqueness. Kiro is a fully developed riveting character—he will make you swoon, tug at your heartstrings, and turn you on!

I also want to praise the absence of OW/OM drama in this whole series. I know many readers like myself get tired of romantic plots than hinge on another man or woman causing trouble for the main couple, and this series proves that you don’t need all that melodrama to make a riveting story.  These tales have been packed with danger, intrigue, and inner turmoil that each couple has to face, and those issues provide ample conflict to propel the plot.

Each book has left me wanting a little more, and I closed this one feeling the same, craving more of this eclectic family together….So if you want more too, keep reading for an exclusive character interview!

~Character Interview~
5 Questions with Annika Martin’s Dangerous Royals

Welcome to the Book-Bosomed Book Blog everyone!
*Mouth gapes open at three stunning princes who enter the room like they own it with their loves at their side.*

Q1. Princes, describe your idea of the perfect date.
"First of all, thank you for having us here at Book-bosomed blog! Now, for your question. Perfect date? I love to cook for Mira."
Mira: *smiles* "I love him to cook for me." 
*Group shifts around* "This sounds like they mean it dirty somehow."

*Kiro wraps  his arms around Ann.* "A fire in the fireplace. I feed Ann a nice big meal."
“And after dinner, a walk,” Ann adds.
“A walk?” Kiro scowls. “After I feed my mate I like to fuck her.”
*Ann goes red.*

“Our perfect date is to roam around the city and see what happens.”
*Tanechka grins* “With a stop for pastries.”
“Perhaps we watch the boats on the river.”
“And if anybody looks at Tancheka the wrong way, I will fuck them up.”

Q2. Let’s see where else the princes’ hearts lie. Mira, you work to help the less fortunate. The princes have a lot of money; if each brother had to donate to a charity, which ones do you think each would choose?
“That’s a great question, because you know the Dragushas are definitely cleaning up their act and looking at more positive things to do with their resources.” *Mira narrows her eyes at the three of them.* 
*Aleksio beams at her.* “You know it’s true, baby.” 

“Aleksio has actually been doing a ton to fund the legal and living costs of the victims of Lazarus’s pipeline. It’s really helped. And Viktor and Tanecka have been getting involved in refugee causes. And of course Kiro is all about saving the woods and buying land where they can roam free without being hunted. These brothers are aweseome!”

Q3. You’ve all endured a long road to be together so surely it’s time for some fun. Tanechka, if you’re in charge of the evening’s entertainment and a rock concert is on the agenda, which band do you score tickets to see? Who among the six of you is losing their concert virginity?  Who are you most likely to catch head-banging to the music? And who might go as far as stage diving?
"Poor Kiro doesn’t know music at all! Viktor and I love rock, especially Metallica—we very much love them, as well as The Stooges and the Stones. We took Kiro to a concert of Metallica and he did not like it. But Kiro loves poppy songs, like Beyonce, Sia, Spoon. We all think it is very funny. "

Q4. Viktor—I recently read something shocking about you. *Spoiler alert! Anyone who hasn’t read Savage Mafia Prince, close your ear…or cover your eyes.* So you went shopping at IKEA! And for fish paintings! Since you are quite the homemaker, if you and Tanechka went shopping for a housewarming gift for Aleksio & Mira and Kiro & Ann, what would you buy them?
"Aleksio and Mira are having many dinner parties, but the plates get broken often. I would buy them plates made of plastic, so that they are not broken."
"I’m not serving people dinner on plastic plates. But thanks for the thought, brother."
*scowls* "And for Kiro and Ann, many big blankets and pillows. They love to lounge around on the floor. "

Q5. Following this interview you’re all off together for a Dragusha family vacation. Kiro picked the location so obviously you’re going camping. Hand over your backpacks to Kiro so he can determine if you’re prepared and reveal the contents?  *Eyes Aleksio & Viktor in their sexy black Armani suites.* I wonder if those two have a change of clothes in there.
"Mira and I are staying at the Skyslope Hotel."
"We’ll take the helicopter in for the day!"
"We’ll bring breakfast!"

PLUS: 5 Rapid Fire Questions…Tell us the first thing that comes to mind.

#1 Everyone: Do you see yourself as an optimistic or pessimistic?
Tanecka & Alesksio
Everyone else: "Optimist." 

#2 Everyone: In one word describe yourself (dark, wicked, and savage are off the table).
Aleksio: "Thoughtful."
Mira: "Warrior."
Viktor: "Fighter."
Tanechka: "Like a cat."
Kiro: "Wolf"
Ann: "Investigative."

#3 Princesses: What is your prince’s best physical feature?
Mira: "His eyes."
Tanechka:  "He is strong as a bull."
Ann: "Amazing shoulders."

#4 Princes: Against your front door, on all fours on a bear skin rug, or spread eagle on the bed—which way do you prefer to claim your mate?
Aleksio: "Any way. I can’t get enough of Mira!!"
Viktor: "Up against a wall."
Kiro: "On a soft rug or bed. I am done with taking her outside!!"

#5 Princesses: Favorite thing to hear your prince call out “in the moment.” ;-)
*Mira, Tanechka and Ann look at each other and then at their princes, glowering.*
Ann: “Ummm….better leave that to your imagination!”
