Mills and Boon Modern Romance

The ruthless tycoon and the virgin heiress
Dangerously handsome Olivier Moreau has everything: power, money, and endless women warming his bed. But there is one thing Olivier is still hungry for: revenge on the Lawrence family!
What better vengeance than to seduce innocent Bella Lawrence…and cast her aside when he’s had his fill? An eye for an eye, a heart for a heart. But when cold, calculating revenge turns to red-hot passion, Olivier has no intention of letting her go… She’ll stay right where he wants her – in his bed!
Again, author India Grey has charmed me with Taken for Revenge, Bedded for Pleasure. It’s a very intense love story, full of passion, secrets, pain and intrigue. On top of that, both Olivier Moreau and Bella Lawrence carry a lot of baggage from their past.
Set in London and the French countryside I felt drawn to the hustle and bustle of the City but India’s description of the French countryside, and the Moreau farm house made me want to plan a trip to France. This couple’s journey begins in an unconventional way and almost ends in an explosive and violent manner.
They both are fighting demons from their past….Bella has issues with her family plus suffered at the hands of a man who used her and then publicly shamed her. Oliver has definite issues from his childhood and has not seen his father in years. Now returns to France and is shocked at seeing Bella again. He has to decide what type of revenge he is going to take against the Lawrence family for their past transgressions against his father and fights his attraction for Bella every step of the way.
Olivier and Bella’s story is a interesting one, full of obstacles, lust, mistrust that will have you cheering them on to find the happiness they so deserve. It’s a beautifully crafted story as only India Grey can pen.

Behind the book: As a reader I’ve always been fascinated by the Dedication Page and this one is no exception: “This one’s for Daisy, who makes the hard times easier and the good times better. With love and thanks”. Isn’t that lovely? M
