Galen Hawke is determined to get revenge for his friend who recently died. He feels that his friend’s fiancĂ©e, Haley should be mourning his friend not celebrating her recent engagement to another man. Galen is determined to make her pay for her lack of fidelity. Galen plans to get Haley to fall in love with him so that once she is completely his he can destroy her. Though sometimes the best laid plans don’t work out the way they are supposed to.

Haley Moreland is marrying a man that she has no feelings for but he can save her family from financial ruin. Haley knows she should be grateful for this chance to save her family but all she really feels is dread of the upcoming wedding. Then Haley meets Galen and sees a chance to have more than a loveless marriage. If she can trust him he has the finances and connections that could save her family and also give her a chance to find the love she so desperately wants. Of course if she can’t believe his promises she can at least get a taste of a passion she has never had or will ever have in her arranged marriage.

What starts out as revenge is quickly complicated by Galen getting caught in a trap of his own making. Now Galen is starting to find out things about Haley that is starting to change his mind about her but will he be about to get out of the mess he has created or will everything crash down around him. Only time will tell if he will be able to fix the mess he has made and still be able to get what he is fast discovering is the only thing he truly wants, Haley.

This story is one that once you start you won’t want to stop until the very end. This is a story that will surprise the reader with how it draws the reader into the story and will have the reader cheering for the characters as they both try to get what they want. This story will draw on the emotions of the reader so much so that having a box of Kleenex close at hand will be a must. This is one book that will not disappoint any reader that picks it up to read it.

I give this one 5 red roses
