A #MyNewLife Novel
Cover Design: Murphy Rae, Indie Solutions
We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother’s best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I’d opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I’d go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn’t be falling for him.
Just sex because I’d leave in three months, and I’d like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn’t the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.

Title: Vengeful Love: Deception (Vengeful Love #2)
Author: Laura Carter
Release Date: April 11, 2016
How far would you go for the one you love?
Would you keep a deadly secret?
Would you risk everything?
I would. And I did. Because living without Gregory Ryans is unthinkable.
But I can’t keep living a lie. He can’t see that the only way to be free is to reveal the truth.
I’m ready to put my faith in the law, but he’s doing what he does best: buying a contingency plan.
He tells me I’m his light, his one bright spot in all the darkness that surrounds him. But his past is creeping forward from the shadows, and secrets he’s guarded with his life are destroying him.
There are some things money can’t buy.
If he won’t let me in, I’m not sure my love is enough to save him.
I stand back from the floor-length mirror and assess my finished look. I’ve got to admit, for me, I look fantastic, like a million dollars…a little more than the dress cost. The long, black lace sleeves are finished with an extravagant pearl and crystal cuff. The front of the dress is high and square and hugs my skin perfectly until it pools at the floor. The train at the back pulls the front against the shape of my legs, which are looking lean in high, strappy heels. Then the piece de resistance…the drooped back, cut out to just below the waist. I turn my back to the mirror and cast a glance over my shoulder, biting down on my lip. My pinned up hair perfectly shows off the open back and the necklace Julia picked out is dazzling in the light. A square cut diamond rests on top of the square neck line at the front and a platinum chain sparkles all the way down to the middle of my back where three pearls run into another square diamond. The necklace I did have to use Gregory’s account for but only as security. Julia said she’d make an exception to the rules and allow me to loan the precious stones, on the basis that Gregory’s account would back it up.
There’s a gentle tap on the dressing room door. “Scarlett, are you ready?”
I run my Chanel red over my lips one last time and open the door. “Ready, Jackson.”
“You, ah, you look lovely.”
I take a deep breath and my heart thumps in my chest. “I hope he likes it.” I loop my arm through Jackson’s and let him lead me down the staircase. “Are you going to tell me where we’re going yet?”
“I’m under strict orders not to.”
I shake my head with a laugh. I knew the answer before I asked the question.
My stomach ties itself in knots as we drive through the city in the Mercedes. I dismiss the signs for London City Airport until there’s no alternative than the airport being our destination. Jackson drives across the tarmac surface until a private jet comes into view. On its side, GJR Enterprises. He rounds the jet in the Mercedes and a red carpet appears on the other side. He stops the car at the edge of the red carpet. I look around but don’t see Gregory.
My car door opens and Jackson offers his hand to me in his usual black suit and black tie. I take it with a nervous smile. My stomach is sick with excitement and anticipation.
Jackson chuckles as my wide eyes silently thank him, my mouth incapable of releasing words.
“Your man,” he says, closing the car door and turning me to look towards the steps of the plane, no longer empty.
My heart explodes in my chest, my head in a spin, my legs weightless. He moves his dinner jacket covered arm to his heart. I take him in, all of him, his tall, perfect body, his immaculate dinner suit and bow tie, his slicked-back hair.
“Holy shit,” I say beneath my breath.
I can’t move. I can only stare in awe. His lips turn into a knowing half smile. He mouths something, which I think is “get here.”
I’m aware of the eyes of airport staff and Jackson on me as I find the ability to move one foot in front of the other. Lifting my dress at the side with one hand and holding onto the stair rail for strength with the other, my eyes follow two sparkling precious brown stones, lured by their magnetism.

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.

Title: Vengeful Love: Black Diamonds (#3)
Release Date: May 16, 2016
The final, heart-pounding instalment 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.
About the Author:
As a child, Laura would make up plays to perform with her sister and cousins at her grandparents’ house. She enrolled in drama school and piano classes, plotting, performing, writing lyrics to songs. In school, she wrote screenplays and stories–she can remember blushing at her first use of an expletive! Safe to say, Laura has always had a flare for the dramatic and spent probably too much time living in a fictional world.
At some point in her late teens, sensibility won out and Laura enrolled in law school. She studied Law at the University of Durham, then studied for a diploma in Legal Practice and became a master of International Trade Law.
When her student days came to an end, Laura spent time travelling the world, indulging in new sights, sounds, people and cultures. She kept a daily travel journal and wrote snippets of her adventures for family and friends back home. It was on Bondi Beach when Laura was living in Sydney, Australia, that she picked up a tatty notepad and pencil and began writing her first novel (now safely tucked away in a drawer).
When her legal career brought her back to London, England, the writing bug bit Laura again and she found an idea that stuck. From a small bedroom in the city, Gregory Ryans and Scarlett Heath were born in book 1 of the Vengeful Love trilogy.
Laura continues to practice law full time for a global business law firm and writes in the evenings and on weekends. The Vengeful Love trilogy is complete (at least for now) but Laura has a lot more ideas up her sleeve.

Laura is attending two signings this year. The first one is RT in Las Vegas this coming April and her second is at Four Brits Book Fest in Birmingham, England in June. To find out more information go here.

As you know, the With Me In Seattle Series came to a close earlier this month with the eighth and final installment, FOREVER WITH ME. I’ve been steadfast in my decision that there would be no further stories from the series, no spin-offs, nothing more. In my mind, it was complete.
And I still feel that the Montgomery/Williams families are complete, and I maintain that I’m happy with their happy-ever-afters.
But, I’ve also heard you when you’ve said that Asher, Matt Montgomery’s partner in TIED WITH ME, deserves to have a happily ever after for himself and his daughter Casey. So, when the lovely ladies from 1001 Dark Nights asked me to participate in their wonderful project, I thought long and hard about whose story it should be about. Seattle is finished, and I’ve moved on to New Orleans for the new Boudreaux Series… And then it occurred to me: why not do both, and offer a companion novella to each of the series?
And so, because you, the reader, has been so insistent that you want to see Asher and Casey find their perfect person, I’m excited to introduce you to EASY WITH YOU. I think you’re going to love Asher and Lila’s love story this spring…
EASY WITH YOU, a companion novella to both the With Me in Seattle Series and her upcoming Boudreaux Series, will be releasing March 24, 2015! Now you can see some of your favorite characters again while they interact with some new ones. We’re so excited to get Asher and Lila’s story! Check out the cover for the novella and all the information on EASY WITH YOU below!
ABOUT EASY WITH YOU:
Nothing has ever come easy for Lila Bailey. She’s fought for every good thing in her life during every day of her thirty-one years. Aside from that one night with an impossible to deny stranger a year ago, Lila is the epitome of responsible.
She’s pulled herself out of the train wreck of her childhood, proud to be a professor at Tulane University and laying down roots in a city she’s grown to love. But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila’s shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans. When the police detective assigned to the murder case comes to investigate, she’s even more surprised to find herself staring into the eyes of the man that made her toes curl last year.
In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant, but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself.
With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe-to-toe with the one woman that haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he’s ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter’s lives for the long haul.
But when Lila becomes the target, can Asher save her in time, or will he lose another woman he loves?
