Destined to protect her. Forbidden to love her.

Immerse yourself in this collection of short stories filled with dark secrets, tormented pasts and forbidden desires. Where love still conquers all.

Join six heroes (and the heroines they pine for) on these fast-paced adventures of mystery and romance, longing and loyalty, vengeance and redemption. And get just a taste of how far a man will go to protect the one woman he can’t have…

1940’s era private investigator Joe Casey finds himself entangled with a dangerously alluring woman as he launches a war of vengeance against the mob.

Stellan Stark, a paramilitary assassin for hire, must face the mission and the woman he walked away from – ten years ago. With his handlers watching his every move, can Stellan find the closure he needs to finally leave the tempting and tempestuous Verity Cordray in the past? Or would he dare defy orders a second time?

Former Marine intelligence operative Maxen Brigh joins forces with the relentless and attractive investigative reporter Aveline Watson. Together, they embark on a high-profile, international manhunt for a murderer. The victim: Dr. John Watson, Sherlock Holmes’ assistant – and Aveline’s father.

Plus, three more tales of dark pasts with hopeful futures.

Whether you prefer streetwise private investigators, loyal and protective military men, or even alpha males with a dark past – there’s a steamy, suspense-filled story for you inside Vengefully Yours.

Review by Stacey

I often find short story collections a bit hit and miss and Vengefully Yours unfortunately was no exception to this. Some stories within held my attention and I adored, others I didn’t really care for or couldn’t get into them.

The book contains six different stories that all have a recurring theme, romance (sorts of). They are all told from a male POV and each portrays the male as the hero. Some are quite dark, some a little steamy.

The book is only 150 pages long so as you can imagine containing six stories within that they are quite short and some of them didn’t feel quite finished like we got a snapshot of the full book.

What I did like about the book is that the stories were unique and different from anything I had read recently. I loved the snappiness of them and that I could dive in and out when I only had a few minutes spare. There were also a couple of gems within – Behind the Eight Ball and Angel of La Seine. I think because they weave past and present together they intrigued me.

Overall, the collection is pretty decent and it was good to step away from my normal reads for a couple of days.

J. Rose Black weaves stories about obsession, redemption, and the transcendental power of love. From her early days writing fanfiction for a passionate following of international readers, to crafting novels with her own characters, Rose has always been drawn to broody protectors and plucky, no-nonsense women ready to fight for what they believe in.

When Rose isn’t deeply immersed in her latest manuscript, she’s working in cyber security and thwarting the next generation of internet bad guys. Out of the office, she’s #Shipping with friends over her favorite, swoon-worthy couples, heading to the gym to battle the great evil that is Unmovable Baby Weight, or complaining about her husband’s addiction to 3D printing. Also: nagging her children to eat something other than cheese.
