Ever since her mother died while serving time for a murder she didn't commit, Bell's been focused on one thing: revenge. She knows her mother was set up by the powerful Gable family, international bankers who will crush anyone for profit, or amusement. Now she's determined to take the Gables down.
Seducing her way into the life--and bed--of the family's rebellious youngest son, Lander, she figures it should be easy to uncover the secrets she needs to destroy his family. But Lander turns out to be more complicated than Bell expected. He's intelligent, mysterious--and their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Lander is still the target, but once Bell gives in to her desire to touch him, he starts seeming much less like an enemy--which is why her anger is more necessary than ever.
Bell Dantès is out to avenge her mother who was wrongly accused and convicted ten years ago of a brutal murder that involved the wealthy Gable family. She’s been plotting and preparing for years and is now starting to execute her plan, beginning with youngest son Lander Gable.
This is the first of a three-part serial and it sets up the story and players extremely well. Bell has some serious issues and uses her rage, beauty and ruthlessness to seek her revenge on the seemingly unsuspecting Gable family. Told from her point of view, she’s at times chilling and at others vulnerable. I’m not sure I even like her but at this stage it doesn’t even matter because the story is intriguing. Her relationship with Lander is sizzling and he’s an enigma himself. He appears to be a decent guy but you know there’s a lot boiling under that surface, especially after what we learn at the end. I’m also not sure who’s under who’s control. No matter, I’m along for the ride.
Bring on Part 2!
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
