There is death where the wind whispers.

Left for dead by his own father on a snowy sidewalk, Kazimir Markovic finally understands what true betrayal really means, and just how far one will go to keep a secret. He only needs to survive, to make it home alive to his wife, and then everyone else will know what it means, too.

It will all come to an end …

Still a 5 star rating for this re-read because ... crazy Russians 💖

What a fantastic finish to what has become one of my favourite series. I'm no fan of drawn out stories over several books, this series is the exception, it's just that good. I've loved every minute I spent with Kaz and Violet. The twists and turns, the suspense, the anxiety I was experiencing - so much so my stomach was in knots at times and I couldn't read fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. I just knew that t

It’s safe to say I’ve really enjoyed this series. It’s also safe to say this was my least favourite of the three. In fact at times I felt my attention wandering.

It all went as expected. But whereas the first book had the attraction, passion and fire between Kat and Violet. The second had the intriguing Boykovs and the mysterious Alfie. This one just ... I don’t know. Honestly I’m gutted that I didn’t love this as much as the first one.

But I have my fingers firmly crossed that we’ll be getting mo

Wow, what an intense, hair-raising finale to Kaz and Violet's story. Most of all, I'm going to miss Kaz. He's one hot, intense and demanding Russian!

This one started right where we left off with the second book and my heart was in my hands. I was a serious mess, much like Violet, as we awaited Kaz's fate.

This was a highly explosive finale. One wild ride of the forbidden love between an Italian Mafia Princess and a Bratva Prince. I've thoroughly enjoyed every moment in this allurin

In this final book of the trilogy, it was a case of that they were either on Kaz’s side, by his side, or in his fucking way. They had to choose wisely, as if they weren’t at his table....they were on the menu.
Kaz showed us that you can go a long way with promises, but also you can go a lot further with promises and a gun 😉.
Violet finally stepped-up her game and showed she was now a Markovic through-and-through and not Daddy’s dolcezza anymore.

revenge doesn't ask any questions, it consumes you and devours you, it makes you harden and little pieces inside of you die along with it...

beside that, IT turned them both into two people who stood beside each other and existed for each other, protecting one another even if it went against everything they were born and raised into.

I couldn't have been more eager enough to get to this knowing how bk 2 ended...

This picks up right from that point, oh boy! Kaz of course had to make it but then he had to recover from that fatal incident. And as he recovered, it wasn't as if the world paused on his behalf. Of course not! So the plan was he recovers, gets rid of people once and for all, settle things then he and Violet can finally live the life they want. Simple, right? Of course no

Cannot be read as a standalone


I can't believe this series is over. The sex and violence continues in this third and final book.

Kaz and Violet are still fighting their fathers so that they could be together.

The bloodshed.... I loved it.

My only issue:
The conflict towards the end seemed a little unnecessary. I wish the characters just could have agreed to disagree.
My thoughts on this series:
I have nothing to complain about on the first book.
Deanna❤Pink Lady❤️
I must say that this last book in the trilogy was a wild ride. There were twists and turns laced in brutality all in the name of revenge. The loved between Violet, the Italian Princess and Kazimir, the Russian Prince, was fierce and consuming. Being together was not an option and in order to be together, the war between the families had to be vicious and bloodthirsty.

I will say that there were moments that slightly frustrated me. Some actions and consequences didn’t add up for me when dealing w
This series kept me on the edge of my seat. Kaz and Violet went through so much, and by the end you are worried for all your faves. My kind of criminal drama. I need Ruslan's book now.

Re-read 07/27/19: This is the season that introduced me to both of these writers. I enjoy Bethany-Kris' other works, but LOVE everything London Miller has to offer to far.

This was book 3 in the "Seasons of Betrayal" series. This book picks up where book 2 left off Kaz is left for dead by his father and him fighting for his life. These two had an uphill battle neither one of there father's wants them to be together and they will stop at nothing to keep them apart. Violet finds out she is pregnant. This was a good read Kaz will do anything to keep her safe. When he goes after his father Kaz returns her to get father. I didn't like her mother she was jealous of ...more

“The terror was all consuming. Debilitating. It wasn’t just a fast heartbeat, but the belief a heart would stop altogether. It wasn’t just anxiety thrumming through the nerves, but the inability to even speak through the emotion.”

This is the life that Violet Gallucci chose when she decided that she would let herself fall into the arms of the man that would always be forbidden. Especially when her father will make it a priority to ruin everything within her

This review is for the entire series (3 books). I liked the story and the couple - the whole Romeo and Juliet, different sides of tracks theme. The story was entertaining and pretty hot. There were some aspects I didn’t love, like the fact it seemed everyone betrayed each other except the siblings of the hero, on one hand I am glad the authors showed that most families are complicated but they also made it so there was little loyalty to family or their mob family with a few exceptions.

The final novel in the Seasons of Betrayal series and the conclusion to one of my favorite mafia romances to date. Bethany-Kris and London Miller waste no time in thrusting the reader back into the bloodshed, the deceit, the heavy-weighted threats, the all-encompassing fear, and the strongest love story that Kaz and Violet share as husband and wife.

This is how you end a trilogy!

We have reached the finale of this trilogy and I can't even express how much of a payoff this final book was! When we last left our favorite star-crossed couple Kaz was left bleeding out in the snow and Violet was just coming to the realization of some BIG things after having been in the hands of the enemy!

I don't want to ruin anything so I'm going to be extremely vague, but this story had everything. Blood, love, violence, sex, death, an amazing bond between tw

The Seasons of Betrayal series has fast become one of my favourite Mafia romances. From the start, this series has been utterly compelling, totally unputdownable and has introduced me to some of the most memorable characters.

"Do I tell you often enough how much I love you?"

HELLO? CAN YOU UNDERSTAND MY OBSESSION WITH THIS AUTHOR? I can't believe the series is over. I'm going to miss Kaz and Violet so much. These books were truly unique and something else. I don't know if I'll find another like it. Where the wind whispers was fast paced, action packed, filled with new beginnings and sweet romance. Waiting to get this book was TORTURE because of the way the previous one ended. UTTER TORTURE.

This is the conclusion to Kaz and Violet's story.

This starts off where book 2 ended and for those of you who have read it you know what that means.

We are thrust into a swirl of emotions. We walk through every emotion Violet is feeling right down to her core as the minutes slowly go by.

Finally Kaz awakens with revenge seeping from his pores, but he has to walk before he can run to the battle field.

This where it all comes together for the couple. Though out the series I just hope it would be a good ending to pull though. I wasn't sure if this was going to be one of those books that I was going to be mad about that it didn't turn out the way I was hoping. In away I wanted a different out come, but not necessarily did the ending was bad. I did love the book,

Where the Wind Whispers is the last book in the history of Kaz & Violet although I think not the last book of the serie. Since I'm a stalker I saw that Vera maybe had book.

This journey was completely awesome, Kaz & Violet story being a modern story of Romeo and Juliet, completely you fall in love. It keeps you stuck like glue reading until the last chapter.

It’s a book that in one day can be done without regret.

Once again, the dynamic duo of Bethany-Kris and London Miller bring 'IT' in the riveting conclusion of Kaz and Violet's love story.
'Where the wind whispers' sees Kaz come back from the dead so to speak, with one mission. Revenge.
Vasily may have left him for dead in that epic ending in the last book,but Kaz having got a second chance is not taking any chances.He has to tie loose ends and that results in him letting Violet go to keep her safe.T

The Seasons of Betrayal Series has impressed me from the start. A romantic suspense saga between two people, Kaz and Violet who were never intended to cross paths, let along get to together. Their fathers have done everything possible to prevent their relationship once it came to their attention and in this book, with the tension finally comes to a head.
