Release Date: September 6th 2016 
Publisher: Forever & Forever Yours | Grand Publishing 
Genre: Romantic Suspense 

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Vengeance (Valentine Shepherd, #1) . . .
Explosive action, increasing body count, all the way/around the way/any way sexual encounters. P-l-o-t. Plot. And more plot. There was a huge does of wtf, really, are you kidding me, oh no, say that again. I just can’t tell you the details. You have to read this one for yourself. Did that really happen? No! You have to be pulling my leg.

You step in the pages with a mindset that this will be your everyday romantic suspense. But when you reach the end and come out the other end you will say that I got me a serious romantic SUSPENSE. You are not certain that who you think is what really what you thought. And what you thought should be what you think. You are taken there and then further. You have to put the brakes on and slow down to make sure what you read was indeed what you read.

You have to meet these characters yourself. Because they are characters. An antihero with serious cargo on board. A heroine that has issues with getting things right. When I got to the end I was so caught up in all that I read that I almost forgot where I started with Val and Max. You be the judge.

Not every Valentine is a saint . . .

Corruption. Greed. Illicit sex. Murder. Private investigator Valentine Shepherd thinks she's seen it all, and her strange ability to glimpse the future gives her an edge no one else in the world has. But when her fiancé is killed trying to exonerate his client, billionaire Max Carressa, Val makes it her personal mission to bring the people responsible to justice, no matter the cost. Convinced the two men are linked by more than attorney-client privilege, she enlists Max's help in her investigation and gets more than she bargained for . . .

On the run, Val and Max must uncover who wants them dead and why. The answer leads them to a conspiracy that has Val herself at its center. She doesn't understand how or why, but time is running out to expose the truth and escape the danger she knows is coming . . .
