Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
He's a devastatingly handsome, filthy-rich CEO. She's a high-flying London lawyer. All it takes is one boardroom pitch. One hostile takeover.
VENGEFUL LOVE is darkly suspenseful, sinfully sexy white-collar romance at its very best.
I've always walked the straight and narrow—following the rules, never straying from my chosen path.
Until Mr. Sexy Bazillionaire CEO Gregory Ryans walked into my life. It was only supposed to be business, but one brush of his wicked lips against my skin changed everything.
I can't deny what this man inspires in me. I'll do anything he asks…even help destroy the enemies from his past.
But he's hiding more than he's telling me.
When our love leads to tragedy, there's no going back. Gregory's past is trying to kill our future.
They say love can bring a person to their knees.
I've just proven that vengeful love is the strongest force of all.

VENGEFUL LOVE doesn't release until March, but it's already been called one of the most anticipated books of 2016…and I think you'll see why in this debut dark romantic suspense novel by Laura Carter!
When London mergers and acquisitions attorney Scarlett Heath preps for a huge potential client, the only thing she's unprepared for is her reaction to CEO Gregory Ryans. Scarlett is ridiculously turned on by the brooding bazillionaire, but it would be career suicide to get close to the man on a personal level. But working together every day and keeping her hands off of him isn't easy, and Scarlett finds herself overwhelmed by her attraction to the man who is determined to perform a hostile takeover of his monstrous father's company, just to tear it to pieces immediately after. Scarlett struggles with the morality of the move, but when she meets Gregory's father, she's sure the son's vengeance is justified.
Except that now, Scarlett is in a madman's crosshairs, and she has no idea how to protect herself. She'll have to live with the consequences of her choices for the rest of her life, the question is whether or not she'll do it with Gregory by her side.
VENGEFUL LOVE is the utterly captivating first novel in a planned trilogy by Ms. Carter that has dark intrigue, some morally questionable decision making, a borderline obsessive relationship and a lot of wicked hot sex that made my kindle blush. Told from Scarlett's POV, the pace flowed nicely despite the length, especially when the bad stuff starts going down. The chemistry between Scarlett and Gregory is well written and deliciously hot…the pair couldn't keep their hands (and all other applicable body parts) off of each other.
The intrigue was also well written, and I found myself unable to look away as Scarlett's world was turned upside down by a madman intent on revenge. I held my breath waiting for the shoes to drop, and the hits just kept on coming. This book was an un-putdownable read, and a brilliant way to kick off the new year.
Bottom Line: VENGEFUL LOVE was both well written and captivating, and I'm eagerly anticipating books 2, Vengeful Love: Deception, and 3, Vengeful Love: Black Diamonds, due out in April and May 2016 respectively.
