What would you do if you knew that a coincidental mistake you had made has lead to the death of your loved ones? What would you do if you knew that it was a well planned coincidence?

A revengeful woman's pursuit after her lover, a Russian gangster who is responsible for the death of her husband and son, and who seeks to take away all her possessions.

Gabriela is a beautiful millionaire, a recognized art patroness, who leads an exemplary family life. She is tempted and swept into an affair with a mysterious and charming client. When her son and husband are kidnapped and murdered she discovers that they were not coincidental victims, and that the mysterious man is responsible for their deaths. In order to pull herself out of the depths of despair and alcoholism she is being drawn into, she must face the skeletons that were buried in her closet a long time ago, and carry out a brutal revenge against the murderer.

She formulates a vengeful plot and is helped by Guy - a young and handsome man who becomes her lover. Not knowing that he is a device in her plan, he dangerously interweaves his life with hers and risks his future for her.

Will he serve her needs? Will she risk his future? Will the Russian mafia kill them both?



My Review

What would you do if the affair you had resulted in the death of your husband and son?
You would seek revenge.

And this is exactly what Gabi did. After getting involved with a mysterious Russian man – who it turns to out, is part of the Russian Mafia and he didn’t take too kindly to sharing her with her husband. After getting swept up in alcoholism after their death she finds a new purpose and determination to seek revenge on him. She hires Guy to train her and he soon becomes her lover.

This was such a great book, and I loved the twists and turns that happened. This is the first book by the  Ms Arama that I have read and it will certainly not be my last.
