Summary

Dive into the world of the ruthless in this new stand-alone dark mafia romance from USA Today best-selling author Faith Summers.

What kind of happily ever after do you get when you’re forced to marry a monster?

A monstrous Bratva leader who binds your wrists and promises to break you.

Mikhail Dmitriyev is a beautiful devil with a villainous heart and a thirst for revenge. The choices he gave me when he stole me away from my home with an army of men were very clear—marry me or die. I chose to marry him and live. But there’s one small problem with his grand plan to rain Armageddon on the Mexican Cartel.

I’m not the woman he thinks I am.

I’m not the cartel princess he thinks he took to make his enemies bow to him. 

When my captor finds out my secret and realizes he married the wrong woman, love won’t be enough to save me. And neither will his obsession.

Deceptive Vows is a dark mafia arranged-marriage romance. It contains dubious situations, mature content, and graphic violence some listeners might find offensive and/or triggering.This is a complete stand-alone.

Enjoyable

This was a great book! I very much enjoyed the storyline which was fast paced and kept me interested despite the fact that I have listened to a lot of mafia romances. The performances were outstanding and the narrators did a great job!

the best audio!

I just finished the audio of this and when I say this is THE BEST audio I've ever had the privilege of listening to - I MEAN IT!

I could have sworn I was right there with these characters, they kept me company on my commute to and from work and I'm so sad it's finished because I don't want to say goodbye!

The story was gripping, Natalia is a lost broken little girl, when she gets mistaken by a cartel Princess by Mikhail the bratva Prince, well I'm pretty sure if I was in her shoes I'd have gone along with it too!

Mikhail forces her into marriage, but that's only the start of this gritty, angsty, twisty story full of secrets, lies, betrayals and heartbreak.

I was mindblown by this! The writing and narrating was spot on and I'll definitely be saving up to buy more from this author! 😍

Thank you thank you thank you Faith for giving us this masterpiece 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

🖤❤️ OH SUCH TWISTED DELICIOUS PERFECTION ❤️ 🖤

You know it’s been a great book when you want to listen to it all over again when it ends.. and this exciting Bratva romance is definitely one of those books. Natalia and Dmitriyev’s rollercoaster journey isn’t a smooth one as it comes off its tracks with combustible chemistry, unwanted desire, friction, angst, heat, heartache, violence, secrets and a bloody betrayal as Natalia does the only thing she can do to stay alive.. and, as anger-fuelled Dmitriyev, does what he does to avenge the bloody torture and murder of his mother and sister. And, bang I’m hooked, right from the start, this well-written rollercoaster romance had me gripped in its addictive clutches as the rightful rage slowly cooled and calmed. As the feelings in hearts grew.. as denial and rejection of a bond failed.. as outside forces and faceless enemies brought danger and suspense.. as the reign of a Father and leader was passed to another which fuelled rivalry and hate between two very different brothers.. and, as love does eventually conquer all.

And the awesomeness of perfect duet-style narration by Gregory (a sexy Russian accent.. swoon 😘) and Sarah made the action, adventure, tension, suspense, drama, delicious sizzles, swoons and sweet come alive in a natural realistic free-flowing way which gave this very impressive five star story what it deserved.. ten star narration.

Worth a credit? One hundred percent YES - he came, he conquered and he claimed for revenge.. a forced marriage built on hate, secrets and mistruths.. but he walked away with his salvation - her. I was hoping for good from these Authors.. and they gave me everything I wanted.. and so so much more. Brilliant.

It's OK

I just didn't believe their love. They went from having sex a lot to saying I love you and I was kind of lost. The end has lots of twist and turns which I can appreciate. It's a decent book, it's just not great.

🌻An entertaining listen🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

This is a stand alone mafia romance. It has some dark elements but, it’s not overly dark. The anti-hero isn’t abusive towards the heroine nor is her exceptionally cruel. He is actually has a good soul but has suffered a lot loss.

There is a mystery, during most of the book, that hold all of the answers about what caused all the turmoil. There is also a bit of angst but, it’s not overdone.

The bad guys get what’s coming to them and the couple finally gets their HEA so, what are you waiting for?

Light shining through the dark

Loved the story. Mikala stealing what he thought was the cartel princess for his bride, then finding out she is not; she was so much more. Natalia having to live a lie, falling in love with her capture while knowing he is in love with someone she is pretending to be. Both coming from different worlds with shared pain from the same enemy. To both finally being able to truly be with each other minus the secrets. Loved it.

OMG Female Narrator Ruined It For Me!

Only my opinion: I love me a good dark mafia book but narration is the key on an audiobook. Female narrator made me fast forward all her parts. 🤔😡 so I only listened to half the audio.

Captivating!

Mikhail Dmitriyev is the son of a crime boss of the Baranov Bratva, and he follows in his father's footsteps, both with blood on their hands. Mikhail is making a plan for vengeance for those who should still be living, his mother and sister. Before he can enact his plan, he has one thing left to do. He must confess his sins to the priest and, with the opening line of, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned, and I'm about to do it again..." He has every intention of killing the man who destroyed his family, Raul Alvarez. I knew right then that this was going to be especially dark and devious.
Natalia de Leon, locked in a room, awakens to the smell of blood and the sight of a headless man, lying beside her. Bratva men have committed the murders, thinking Natalia is Adriana, the daughter of Raul Alvarez, the Cartel King of Mexico. Raul governed his cartel, and his family cruelly, but the joy of his life was his daughter Adriana. Natalia is Adriana's handmaiden, but basically a slave to do her bidding. When Mikhail raids Raul's headquarters, it is Natalia he discovers as one of the only survivors. He mistakes her for Adriana and steals her away to serve as a part of his plan to take over the cartel. He plans to marry her, use her and then say goodbye once his revenge is completed. What he didn't count on was letting his guard down when they were together, and she brought out a side of him that he had never experienced before. When he finds out her real identity, Natalia de Leon, he turns on her for her lies, but soon realizes that he responded as a beast, and not a man. The plan is set, but he's betrayed and it results in death, angst and treachery, with the possibility that Mikhail and Natalia won't make it out alive.
The characters are colorful, energetic and strong; the romance is passionate, seductive and hot. The imagery is vivid and intense with an end that is most gratifying. The epilogues were perfect for the story!
Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas do a marvelous job with the narration. Their dynamic, well-modulated voices give each character a unique personality and attitude.

I can listen to the male narrator ALL DAY. His accent really brings the H's character to life all the more. The female narrator was very good too. The story is riveting and sucks you in. I highly recommend giving this a listen. the Author really wrote this book VERY WELL.
