About The Book
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.
Book One of the Vengeful Love Series
Character Introduction: Scarlett Heath by Gregory Ryans
I'm Gregory James Ryans. CEO of GJR Enterprises. The woman I'm watching across my conference table right now, that's my lawyer, Scarlett Heath. I'm having to suppress a smile as she tramples my counterpart in a negotiation. And, God is she sexy whilst she's doing it.
She's walking the space in front of the wall of windows, her signature red dress displaying her slim curves. Her black stilettos telling the other guys she means business. As she moves, her long brown hair brushes her back. She catches me looking and glares at me with captivating hazel-green eyes. She knows what I'm thinking. That I'd like to strip her out of that dress and take her over my desk.
I should probably mention, Scarlett isn't only my lawyer, she's also my girlfriend. The only woman I've ever called a girlfriend. So, if you were having remotely inappropriate thoughts, you can stop right there. She's mine.
And damn did I have to fight to get her. Scarlett's the most controlled and headstrong woman I've ever met. I knew the day she pitched to be my lawyer, in the instant I first laid eyes on her, I had to have her.
She wanted me too, of course. Women tend to see my money and looks and want a piece of the billionaire. But Scarlett wouldn’t give in to what I know she was feeling.
You see, everything in Scarlett's world is black and white. She likes laws and rules. She sees a clear line between what's right and what's wrong. And I'm her client. To her, it was wrong to get involved with me. I knew that but I just couldn't walk away.
I thought I was getting somewhere until she uncovered a secret I’d been keeping from her. The takeover she was helping me with, well, it was hostile. I shouldn’t have thought I could hide it from her, not Scarlett, she’s too smart.
When she walked away, I didn’t expect she’d come back but she did. For some reason, she came back to me and helped me complete the takeover. I’m almost certain it was the first time in her life she did something she thought was truly wrong.
Neither of us could have predicted the consequences of that deal. I don’t know where she found the strength to cope with it, but she did. She may not be physically strong but inside, she’s stronger than everyone, even me.
Scarlett’s also extremely caring and, so I’ve learnt, very protective. That combination is a lethal cocktail. She’ll go to any length to defend the people she loves. Maybe she didn’t know it until now, but she has a dark streak, a part of her that seeks revenge.
So, that’s Scarlett Heath. Strong, kind, protective, intelligent, sexy as hell and out to settle a score. But no words can do her justice. You’ll have to meet her yourself to really understand why I just can’t get enough of this woman.
About The Author
Laura grew up in England, UK and has spent a lot of time travelling the world. It was whilst she was living in Australia in 2009 that she began drafting her first novel (now safely in a drawer for a later date!).
In 2012, working as a lawyer in London, inspired by the blinding lights and corporate world, the writing bug bit Laura again. From a small bedroom in the city, Gregory Ryans and Scarlett Heath were born in the first book of the Vengeful Love trilogy.
