Book two of NOLA Knights, the heart-stoppingly sexy spin-off series by Men of Haven author Rhenna Morgan
As an avtoritet for the most powerful crime syndicate in New Orleans, Kir Vasilek doesn’t act without purpose, doesn’t speak without thought and never, ever loses his cool. The lives of his brothers, his family, depend on it. But then Cassie McClintock strolls back into his life, and staying cool is next to impossible. Cassie was the one who got away—and Kir is willing to break all his own rules to keep it from happening ever again.
It’s one thing to report on the Russian mafia; it’s quite another to sleep with one of them, especially one as dangerous, and as sinfully sexy, as Kir Vasilek. Even though the information he once provided helped make her career—and the memory of his touch still keeps her up at night—Cassie knows too much about his world to go down that path.
But when Kir reaches out for help after a rival family comes for one of his own, Cassie doesn’t want to say no, either to investigating a gruesome murder or to the heat that pulls her right back into his arms…and his heart. Taming Kir—and helping to save the family she’s come to call her own—is not the story she thought she’d write, but it’s the one she’s determined will get a happy ending.
Hers to Tame is the highly anticipated follow-up to His to Defend. And don’t miss Roman’s story in Mine to Keep, coming soon from Rhenna Morgan and Carina Press.

Hers to Tame by Rhenna Morgan is the second book in the Nola Knights series. I didn’t read the previous book prior to reading this installment, but I had no problem following the story. Each book in the series features a different couple.
In this installment we meet Cassie McClintock and Kir Vasilek. Cassie works as a reporter, while Kir is a member of the Russian Mafia. Being a reporter my not have been her ideal job, but it paid the bills. Kir and Cassie had met prior to this story being written. He provided her with information which helped to propel her career as a news anchor. During this time, they had a passionate affair, but when she discovered his ties to the mafia, she refused to accept his calls. After much soul searching, she sought him out to apologize for her actions. She would find herself caught up in a situation which began on a professional note but quickly became a passionate and romantic affair.
Kir was the perfect gentleman. He treated Cassie with the utmost respect. His willingness to protect her at all costs and his way with words were adorable.
He had his share of emotional insecurities where his immediate family concerned, but being with Cassie made him realize that love had the power to heal emotional wounds.
It took a while for Cassie to believe in Kir’s love for her. She also had a hard time embracing his family’s acceptance. All this stemmed from the insecurities she had developed based on her experience with her family. I enjoyed watching her overcome her insecurities enabling her to follow her dream and claim her happily ever after with the man she loved.
I thought they were perfect for each other. The scenes they shared were swoon worthy, heartfelt and passionate.
I had a wonderful time with this story, so much so I purchased a copy of book one. It had the perfect blend of romance, drama, mystery and humour.
Characters from the previous book and those from the Haven Brotherhood series from which Nola Knights is a spin-off were present in this Installment. I loved their interactions and how they readily accepted Cassie into their fold. I loved them all with my favourite being Cassie’s Aunt Freida. She was a riot.
Hers to Tame delivered a well written plot, exceptional character development, and a passionate and swoon worthy romance. It would be the perfect read for fans of contemporary romance
