This is very cool!
The Revenge Game by Alice Gaines released in September in the Contemporary Romance genre.
I’ve worked my ass off for what I have, and I’m damn proud of it. I started off with nothing and now I’m filthy rich. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like revenge to help you get your ass in gear. And that’s what I’m taking, with every exclusive resort I open—sweet, sweet revenge…on her.
Nicole Westmore was my first love. The poor little rich girl stole my heart with her sweet smile, hot body, and irresistible innocence. The summer I worked for her father was the best time of my life…until he drove me away. Even then, I thought Nicole would wait for me. She didn’t.
And so, I decided to get even, opening rival hotels, slowly driving them out of business. The old man is gone now, but Nicole is still running the company that’s about to collapse. All my hard work will soon pay off.
And then I catch sight of her at a wedding, and all those feelings come rushing back–for both of us. Still, she doesn’t know what I’ve done—yet—and she seems more than willing. What will one night in her bed hurt?
The sex is hotter than ever, and I can’t help wondering if I’ve made a mistake. Until I get up the next morning…and realize I’ve been kidnapped!
Adam sat at the table in their cottage on the cove and watched Nicole prepare dinner. It was exactly the sort of scene he’d fantasized about when he’d been young and in love. And for once in a very long time, he faced an inner struggle.
Did he still hate her? No. Did he still hate her father? Sure, but what was the point? The man was dead, and Adam was having sex with his daughter again. That in itself would have the bastard spinning in his grave.
Did he still want to sink Westmore Hotels? Getting rid of the competition was a good business move, revenge or not.
But the most important issue involved his own emotions. If he was having honeymoon sex, would he be able to walk away when he’d had enough? Hell, would he ever have enough of this woman? Sometime soon, he’d have to return to the office. And she’d have to go back to work. They’d leave here, and then what? Could he do without her, or was he already in too deep?
He’d tried just about everything one body could do with sex, and it had all been fantastic for him and for all his partners. But none of it compared with being with this woman, even in the most ordinary of ways. Emotion—feelings—had to account for the difference. You had honeymoon sex with someone you loved. Grant hadn’t said that, but he’d implied it. Was he falling in love with Nicole all over again? Good God in heaven.
She glanced over her shoulder at him. “You look pensive.”
“I was only wondering if you’ve become domesticated,” he lied.

Hi Alice, and thank you for being her with us today!
What inspired you to write this book?
I love stories where enemies become lovers. Anger isn’t the opposite of love. Indifference is. With enemies, you already have built-in heat. When that heat turns to passion, watch out! With The Revenge Game, I also had the characters’ history of being young lovers, and it’s sweet that first love wins out in the end.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Adam has two very close friends, Grant and Ryan, and they will each have their own books. I’ve written both, but they have to be edited. I don’t know when they’ll be out, but I hope it’s soon.
Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in The Revenge Game?
Adam is a self-made man. He came from an impoverished background—absent father and alcoholic mother. He went to college on a boxing scholarship and then managed to work his way through business school. One summer, he served as a chauffer for a wealthy man and met Nicole, the man’s daughter. They fell in love and, when the father broke them up, they vowed to wait for each other until Adam finished business school and could send for her. Both felt betrayed by the other when that didn’t happen.
Nicole was the poor, little rich girl. She was totally sheltered by her father. When Adam showed up at her father’s estate, she fell in love with him instantly. She gave him her virginity. When things didn’t work out, she felt adrift but did get through college. Years later, her father has died and left his business to her. She feels overwhelmed by the responsibility. The fact that Adam is trying to sink her company to get revenge on her father doesn’t help matters.
I totally love them both, and it was great to give them a happy ending.
