Revenge is sweet…
Self-made billionaire Alex Damon wants his pound of flesh from the people who ripped his family apart. When he discovers his enemies’ daughter is working at his company — and most likely spying for them — he decides to start his revenge by seducing her.
Natalie Hall is stunned at the personal interest from the CEO of her company. Vulnerable, with an already bruised heart, she wants to avoid any involvement — but she can’t deny the desire he arouses in her.
…but love is sweeter…
What should’ve been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye starts to unravel as Natalie’s unflinching loyalty and kindness begin to thaw Alex’s cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable…since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her family and everyone else she holds dear.

A temporary reunion…
Newly jobless and adrift, former investment banker Kerri Wilson travels to Virginia to see her best friend and regroup, only to run into billionaire playboy Ethan Lloyd. It’s been years since she’s snuck out of his bed after the most amazing sex of her life, and he’s so not her type — she likes them tall, dark and manageable. But he’s too hot to resist, and she succumbs to another sizzling, no-strings-attached (or so she thinks) night.
Unwilling to let her go this time, Ethan makes a simple proposition: a job, a place to stay, and an exclusive affair that will end when either of them finds someone else. But with her dark, painful past catching up to her, Kerri may have to bolt again — even though her heart is telling her to stay. And Ethan’s not giving her up without fighting to make their “temporary” arrangement something far more permanent…

Those of you who know me on Twitter or Facebook or have seen my bio somewhere may have noticed that I enjoy traveling. I’ve been to the Caribbean, Hong Kong and Thailand among many other places. I also lived in several different countries: the US, Canada, Korea and now Japan. When I write, I often incorporate my travel experiences into my stories.
For example, a brief scene in Vengeful in Love is set in Hong Kong, which I visited years ago to hang out with a few friends. A section of Redemption in Love (Hearts on the Line Book 3) is set on a gorgeous beach in Thailand, which is where my husband and I had our honeymoon. We got to visit a temple to make a wish, pet tigers and ride elephants there. And Thai food is to die for!
But there’s one place I’ve yet to visit–not for the lack of wanting–and that’s Europe. It sort of makes me jealous my brother got to go (and my husband lived there for two years!), but not me. I studied European history and I love looking at photos of beautiful buildings and food — yes I love food! — but I just never got around to going. So it’s something I really want to do even though it won’t be easy to travel with a young, overactive boy. And I want to finally meet my online writing and reading friends from Europe in person.
Once my yearning for visiting Europe’s been fulfilled, I want to hit Bora Bora, Vietnam, Australia and Argentina. Not all at once, of course. 🙂 I’ve seen pictures, and they look incredible.
Now some of you might be wondering, “Nadia, are you going to set some of your books in Europe, Bora Bora, Vietnam, etc. after your vacation there?” And the answer is “Of course!”…so long as the setting fits the story. Almost all my books are set in the States, but I like adding a chapter or two in another locale for a bit of variety and fun.
Your turn — where have you been that was amazing? What places do you want to visit? 🙂
