Publisher's Summary

Live-in tutor wanted for four-year-old. Must be willing to relocate to a remote mountain estate. $3K/week cash.

On the run from ruthless killers, I’m down to 10 bucks in my wallet and a half-tank of gas in my ancient car when I spot the ad. The job sounds like the answer to my prayers, but there’s a catch. 

The child’s father is the most beautiful, most dangerous man I’ve ever met.

Darkly seductive and filthy rich, Nikolai Molotov is a tantalizing mystery, a lethally alluring contradiction. Bruised knuckles and tailored suits, tender endearments and dirty promises - my new employer draws me in like a magnet, even as my instincts scream for me to run. 

I should’ve heeded them...because I’m not the only one with secrets. 

My safe haven just might be the devil’s lair, and once he’s claimed me, it will be too late to run.

Anna Take my Credits please!!!!!

I don't know how she does it, but she does. She sucks me in with her characters and stories and pulls me into a world where the men actually... *gasp* kill while being a sweet and caring lover. While none of her characters will ever replace Peter as my ultimate hero Nikolai comes in a close second (for now)

This book has so much potential, I can't wait for the conclusion in book 2. This does not end in a real cliff. hanger, more like a "I can't wait to see what happens next" so don't worry we don't have to bite our nails for years and pull out our hair waiting for the next book seems like it will be available soon, Thank you for that Anna!!

The Devil and his Lair are hot!🔥🔥🔥

And she's back! So glad to have the dark pen of Anna's back giving us readers all of the sexy dangerous alphas we crave.

This time around it is Nikolai a mysterious crime boss in need of a nanny for his young child. Chloe our heroine on the run from villains out to get her unwittingly goes from the frying pan into the fire as she seeks safety in the secluded lair of Nikolai's home as his nanny. The sparks and sexual chemistry is immediate between them. Their is so much sexual tension between them it burns up the pages with its intensity. Nikolai is drawn to Chloe and is determined to have her. The slow burn between them with the intense stares, double entendres and close proximity leaves my heart a flutter. But as the connection between Nikolai and Chloe heats up danger still hovers close. But will the danger to Chloe come from outside or within the Devil's Lair?

The narration was awesome too. Loved both Teddy Hamilton and Ava Erickson.

I so enjoyed this 1st book of the series and I'm dying to know what happens next! Can't wait!

Danger and desire

Audiobook:  Narrators - Ava Erickson & Teddy Hamilton


This is the Gold Premier of narration!  Either of these narrators alone is enough for me but put them together and it was sheer perfection.  Both of their male/female voices was performed in such a way that my mind never consciously recognized that a they were doing the opposite sex’s voice - which is usually where I struggle with audiobooks.  I was pulled completely into this story through the emotional depth portrayed by both Ms. Erickson and Mr. Hamilton.  Loved how their work fused together so seamlessly.



This was filled with lots of dark danger and desire making it impossible to stop once I started. 


Chloe captured my heart pretty quickly as she had a certain amount of innocence about her while danger was hunting her down.  I love a heroine that needs rescuing and Nikolai was perfect for the job.  However, there is something dark lurking within him and surrounding his life.  His obsession with her was palpable and quite delicious.  It kept me on the edge each time I had his point of view.   


I loved the way this author wove the plotline with so many variables.  Even the secondary characters are questionable as to whether I could trust them with this heroine.  I was nibbling on my nails throughout this whole book.  However, experiencing Slava through both Chloe’s and Nikolai’s eyes was so sweet and endearing.  I can’t wait to find out how his relationship with his father is going to work out.  


With a cliffhanger that had me shouting in denial at leaving me hanging as it did, I’m imagining all sorts of scenarios with this couple as well as Slava in the next book.

Wow! I loved it!

OMG! I loved it! Devil's Lair is the first book in the Molotov Obsession Series, an amazingly dark mafia romance. Nikolai and Chloe's story is captivating, suspenseful, and filled with action, mystery, and secrets. Nikolai is ruthless, alpha, powerful, handsome, possessive, and protective. Chloe is such a beautiful, strong character, caring, smart, and brave. They are opposites attract, and they share an undeniable, and strong chemistry. Never a dull moment in this first installment. Impossible to put it down. The story has some explicit scenes of violence. The audiobook version is amazing! Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton did an outstanding job with the narration. I love their voices together. This is a fantastic team author/narrators. Now I can't wait to listen to Angel's Cage, the next book in the Series, to know what happens next. I enjoyed it, and I HIGHLY recommend it.

5 STARS

Wow! First let me say I absolutely love the narrators cast for this book. They always manage to pull me in to the story completely.

As for the story Anna Zaire’s writes darker romance like no other. I was definitely intrigued by Chloe from the beginning. I wanted to know why she was running, what happened?! It was slow sweet torture when she meets Nikolai. He was definitely a cat hunting his little mouse right from the start. I loved every second of it. Also I was absolutely smitten by Nikolai’s son. The only thing that could make this book better is if I could dive right in to the next book. Luckily the wait shouldn’t be too long.

Loved it!

I loved this book! It's not as "dark" as some mafia-type books. There's no non-con which I was happy about. I don't typically like single-dad books, but I really liked this one. If anything this book was too short! Can't wait to see what happens next! I hope book 2 will be on Audible!!

Kinda good but.........

I enjoyed the beginning of the book a lot but then I got kind of annoyed with Chloe. She didn't have enough fire and eventually I was like jesus he's just a guy stop drooling and speak without stuttering like a teenager who just got caught smoking. She was def lacking in the interesting personality box. But anyway the narrators were amazing and I love Teddy Hamilton enough to start a fanclub. So that definitely made the book a better listen. I don't know if the ending was supposed to be a cliffhanger because there was a lot of unresolved ''issues'' but I didn't get the urge to continue reading so I guess that says a lot. With that said the book wasn't terrible, it had a lot of great moments and was an okay read.

Devil Lair

Does end on a cliffhanger but is so worth it!

This was an amazing audiobook! I read the blurb and saw the narrators and knew that this book would be one that I would love. Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton are both some of my favourite narrators and this book shows why. Ava Erickson always seems to hold the right sense of sensuality and innocence with her characters which really helps with the description in my head. This is the same case with Teddy Hamilton but the image he gives off always ranges in the stories he reads and they always end up amazing with his rich baritone voice that adds the right amount of sensuality and strength. This is definitely a book I would recommend to those who think they might like it. I hope you find you love it just as much as I do. Enjoy!

A new favourite mafia romance

I really loved this first book. It had a lot of mystery and that undeniable pull at first sight kind of love.

I felt like the relationship between the main characters moved extremely fast but I think that was the whole point as it cemented their instant attraction/fated love situation. The angst was low as the story progresses quite quickly.

The anti hero is the perfect mix of rough & soft. He’s possessive & protective but not controlling, yet I feel that’s all about to change in the next book!

There’s still a lot of unanswered questions leading into book 2 and I’m hooked! I’ll be jumping straight into the next one.

Narrators were amazing. Teddy is my absolute fav!
