The Professional

Book 1, The Game Maker Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The highly anticipated complete novel of The Professional—the first installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s scorching Game Maker series, an erotica collection that has readers asking: How hot is too hot?

Meet the Professional.

Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss's long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Aleksandr will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.

He makes the rules.

Grad student Natalie Porter has barely recovered from her first encounter with the dark and breathtaking Siberian when he whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures.

In the game of obsession, two players are better than one.

Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy’s reach, Aleksandr spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-rich in Paris, the two lovers tempt each other’s boundaries to discover whether their darkest—and most forbidden—fantasies really can come true...

Previously released as The Professional—Parts 1, 2, and 3 as ebook exclusives.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 24, 2014 – Cole's first Game Maker contemporary erotic romance (originally released in three digital segments) relies on adrenaline and inevitability. Natalie Porter's curiosity about her birth parents leads her to the heart of the Russian mafia. Her father sends bodyguard Aleksandr Sevastyan first to watch over Natalie, and then to kidnap her and take her to Russia. Amid the dangers of mob life, Natalie and Aleksandr form a passionate, kinky relationship. Cole treads an old path with uncertain footing, as if conducting a tour at dangerous speeds, and there are few surprises. Though her depiction of BDSM enthusiasts sometimes lapses into stereotype, her enthusiastic writing helps to make up for it. This is wish-fulfillment fantasy written in a smooth voice that makes the best of an orphan girl's sudden rise to a life of wealth, passion, and danger.
