‘VLAD:’ is the first dark book in K.Websters & K. Dukey’s ‘The V Games’ Series. 

So we have our three main characters, Diana who is arranged to marry Vlad, her younger sister Irina.

Twenty two year old Vlad Vasiliev knows how to play the game of life better than anyone, how could he not when he’s been groomed at a young age by the best, his father. 
Vile
Vicious
Villainous 
Vasiliey men aren’t weak, they bow to no one, they are kings of their empire. Blood in Blood out. 

Diane is the eldest child of the Volkov family and has been primed to take over their family empire of Volkov Spirits, and is requested to marry into the Vasiliey family which will strengthen both families power and wealth over others.

Then we have eighteen year old Irina, always in the shadow hiding behind her sister, but that’s not always the case, once Vlad lays claim to her we see a drastic change, like a phoenix rising she comes out of the shadows and is Vlad’s equal in every way. She’s had a secret crush on Vlad since time began, always watching him from the back ground hidden within the shadows, he’s her favourite addiction, her reason to breath. 

Oh what a tangled web these two weaved, once Vlad places that ring on his betrothed finger she begged him to take Irina under his wing and protect her and allow her to choose who she marrieds when the time comes. Two for the price of one, he now owns both of them and are living in his quarters.

Under the same roof as Vlad, let the game of seduction begin, this is where things get interesting. 

I guess I went into this one with high expectations because with these two pairing up that’s where the bar has been set when it comes to the wickedly disturbed stories they give us. So this one was a wee bit different, where I expected the dark, gritty, deranged shit to come at us these two ladies held back but still delivered us a book that will get it’s hooks into you. 

I know this book is mean’t to surround the V. Games but even reaching the end of the book I don’t really know or understand what the games actually entail as it didn’t really give a full description, but did suggest it was a blood bath which I’m guessing will be explained more in the next book.

There were a lot of v names and for good measure in keeping with the V names they very cleverly incorporated some v words into the mix too. But when it came to all the V names it did make for a confusing read in the first few chapters though it helped that they had a family tree of sorts inserted in the front of the book as reference.

All in all if your fans of these two authors go in prepared to have your world turned upside down, keep in mind that you are stepping into one of the most dangerous mobster families, things aren't as they appear, secrets will be revealed, death and murder will occur, bed swapping will happen. 

Let the games begin!!

The Vasiliev name is a powerful one.
We rule with an iron fist and we do it well.
Being the eldest, I am Father’s best hope at keeping us at the top of the food chain.

Everything I do has purpose.
Everything I do has reason.
Until her.

I play my games thinking several moves ahead.
Power. Power. Power.
Until her.

The next move requires I marry and soon.
This will strengthen us and secure our position.
But I am not to marry her.

I am to wed the eldest Volkov.
Problem is, her younger sister is the one who awakens my dead heart.
It is her I want in my bed and by my side forever.
Her. Her. Her.

In this game, though, it’s not about what I want. 
But maybe it can be about what she wants. 

I am Vlad.
Vile. Vicious. Villainous. Vasiliev.
And I will win eventually.

When she's not lost in the world of her characters or being Mum, Ker likes to read and catch up with her followers on social media. 



My books all tend to be darker romance, an edge of your seat, angst-filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles, prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters growing up. 
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters, I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum, and that comes first in my life, but when I do get down time, I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.Come find me on facebook where i love interacting with my readers.
