The final, heart-pounding installment of the darkly suspenseful, sinfully sexy Vengeful Love series
I loved him with all of me.
It wasn't enough.
Gregory Ryans was everything I wanted, but he didn't trust me with the truth.
When I walked away from him, I should have known Gregory would follow. For a man like him, walking away—no matter the odds—is never an option.
He's come to offer me the deal of a lifetime: his heart. All his secrets. Him. Forever.
But at what cost?
The past refuses to stay buried. There are things about his family, dangerous things even Gregory didn't know.
This time, we'll have to fight together to save what we've built. To show our enemies that love like ours can't be destroyed.
I believe that.

Gregory and Scarlett are back in the third and final installment of the Vengeful Love trilogy, and it's just as tumultuous as the first two books!
After pushing Scarlett Heath away for her own good, Gregory Ryans is lost with his woman now living and working in Dubai. Scarlett is devastated that Gregory couldn't open up, couldn't let her in, but their toxic relationship was slowly destroying every shred of who she was. When Gregory finally comes to his senses and gives Scarlett his heart and his world, things are finally RIGHT for the couple. Blissfully happy in their bubble, the real world seems far away and out of sight, until their past choices come back to haunt them. The couple will have to gather all of their strength as a team and stand as a united front if they're going to finally put their demons to rest.
VENGEFUL LOVE: BLACK DIAMONDS is the third and final story of Gregory and Scarlett's tumultuously erotic relationship. This is such a wild and emotional series; the roller coaster ride of insanity is gut wrenching and sensual and nerve wracking all at once. Ms. Carter's writing style is absolutely brilliant. Its stark beauty captivates immediately and doesn't let up. The relationship between the two was so toxic in Vengeful Love: Deception that I worried that I wouldn't be able to get back to adoring Gregory and that I wouldn't be able to respect Scarlett in this third book. But that just isn't the case, as Gregory finally reveals the reasons for his darkness and Scarlett finally calms the fuck down and is able to see their coupling as something deeper than all out obsessive need.
There is a LOT of sex in this book. Raunchy, rough, raw, slow, sensual, passionate…every form of lovemaking and fucking you could want. For me, it became too much of a good thing, and while fabulously written, I wound up speed reading through those scenes to get to the heart of the story. The suspense portion kicked into high gear toward the end, and VENGEFUL LOVE: BLACK DIAMONDS became bit more well rounded.
Bottom Line: This series is one that will stick with me for a long time, and is one that I will highly recommend to friends.
