LORD OF VENGEANCE ~ USA Today Bestseller!

Taken captive by Gunnar Rutledge, a dark knight sworn to destroy her father, Raina d’Bussy must teach forgiveness to a man who knows no mercy and lives only to exact revenge on his enemy. But time in Gunnar’s keep stirs an unwanted passion in Raina, and something far more perilous, when she finds herself falling in love with the one man she should never desire.

For Gunnar, vengeance is all that matters. He seeks the ultimate price from his enemy’s beautiful young daughter, claiming Raina as his hostage. But the proud beauty defies him at every turn, tempting him like no other. Setting out to break Raina’s glorious spirit, Gunnar instead finds himself bewitched by her goodness, her strength. Can he seize the justice he is due without losing Raina forever?

Editorial Reviews

All About Romance - Lori S.
“Between the hero and heroine, a secret that I was not prepared for (which is a definite plus) and the action building to a fevered pitch toward the end, there was little or nothing not to love in Lord of Vengeance. All in all, it is a truly wonderful read.” Grade A / Desert Isle Keeper

    Well written and immediately engaging.

    I was very impressed with this novel. I was wary at first due to the Harlequin-esque cover but the writing quality, plot and character development pleasantly surprised me. Really good romance, over 900 pages (without becoming tedious).

    I realy Love this book. Gunnar Rutledge lives for vengeance for the loss of his parents and on his plan to get revenge, he never imagines that Raina d'Bussy the daughter of the man that killed his parents will be the one that will make him Love again.

    Great book

    This was her first book and I really enjoyed it. I had to stop at one point because I was scared for some of the characters. But, like a true romance, it has a happy ending.

    Her Vampire series is good too.

    Wonderful Story

    I love Laura's Midnight Breed series and was excited to see her work in another genre. I loved this story, at times I thought it a little long but then there was tons of details she included, she never left you wondering about something. Diffently 5 stars! If you haven't read Midnight Breeds, you need to check more from this amazing author

    Awesome read!

    I read this because I have read all of L. Adian's Midnight series and loved it. If you haven't read those...read them! They are sooooo good! I loved this book, too. It was full of romance, sweetness, love, and believe it or not....adventure, suspense, and action! I highly recommend it! So far...I haven't read a L. Adrian book I didn't like. READ IT! YOU WILL LOVE IT!

    Historically accurate

    I was very much impressed with the authors knowlege of the time period and enjoyed learning the many unfamiliar words she used that were true to the story. I would recommend this book to all who enjoy historical romance. I look forward to reading the other genres this author has to offer.

    First time reading this author. Well written, some scenes a bit

    First time reading this author. Well written, some scenes a bit twisted but it is medieval times. Good amounts of twists and turns to the the plot and an endearing romance. 950 pages that captivated and kept me in within the story. No wasted prose, just good read that quickly drew me in.

    True to real life, gritty and enthralling

    A great read and with over 1000 pages well worth the cost. Unlike so many romance novels this one was not predictable and the characters had to deal with real and controversial issues. True to the fact that not everyone is redeemable and the fantasy of childhood memories are not always what we remember. A great story of growing up, letting go, and seizing your own future with both hands.
