Elyssa is a beautiful woman with striking violet eyes. She is a clothes designer in Rome and she has the opportunity to show her designs to Princess Mona from Saudi Arabia. This becomes a lesson for Elyssa in other cultures and how the women are seen or not seen as the case may be. She is given the opportunity to travel to Saudi Arabia to design the clothes for an upcoming wedding.

Only one problem - she meets someone on the plane ride from Rome. He immediately wants her for himself and will go to any extremes to have her. Mazen is out to make Elyssa his no matter what the cost. Mazen is one disturbed guy, he stops at nothing to get her and he eventually does so.

Rakan is Elyssa’s only hope for her survival. Rakan is a friend of her sister-in-law Serena. Rakan is powerful not only in his country but in other countries as well and is known as The Eagle. Rakan has met Elyssa before only she doesn’t realize it. Rakan is attracted to Elyssa but keeps his emotions and feelings under a tight rein. He is also harboring some secrets that can hurt him and those he loves as well. Will he be able to trust Elyssa with his secret and his life?

Sealed By Revenge is a complex story that has many facets to it. Not only do we see how other countries and cultures deal with pain, betrayal and their customs and beliefs, but we also see a glimpse of how these people really are once they are able to break free of the constraints of their culture. I will not tell you what takes place, but Ms. Laurens wrote and dealt with it in a way that I applaud.

The story will touch you and enlighten you to the plight of all those involved. Ms. Laurens did a superb job of handling the tension, suspense, pain and joy that is felt throughout the book. The scenery is magnificent; I was able to see myself there. The attraction and feelings between Rakan and Elyssa were there from the beginning and they escalated to show that love can and does sneak up on you when you least expect it.

Sealed By Revenge is a book that is not to be missed. You will not be disappointed.
