Filthy Rich by Virna DePaul

High finance and a sizzling office affair raise desire and passion to the boiling point in Virna DePaul’s seductive new contemporary romance—perfect for fans of Carly Phillips, Lori Foster, and Molly O’Keefe.

Cara Michal has had to fight every step of the way to earn her place in the glittering seven-figure world of Wall Street. Years ago her hardworking father, a small-time investment adviser, was wrongfully accused of fraud. Now Cara is at the top of her game, supporting not only herself but her mother and brother. The occasional night out dancing soothes Cara’s soul, even as a bitter need for revenge against the man who destroyed her father makes inner peace elusive.

Then, in a moment of heat, Cara kisses a sexy stranger at a party—only later to discover that the man is Branden Duke, her new boss, an infamous operator with a wicked reputation in bed and on the Street. Branden is a man who seemingly has it all—except a woman who connects with him on a physical and emotional level. Now that he’s found Cara, he’s not sure he can let her go, even if he should.

In spite of herself, Cara is drawn to this charismatic guy. He is a challenge like none she has ever faced in her life. Their passion for each other is unquenchable, surprising them both with its ferocity. Even as Cara wonders if she can trust this man with her heart and soul, the ecstasy of their love cannot be denied. But when the past threatens the present, the two are faced with a truth from which they may never recover.

This story got off to a slow and overly wordy start but that all changed as soon as Cara and Branden meet. Cara is fiercely independent and aside from her friendship with her best friend Iris, avoids emotional attachments. The only women Branden loves in his life are his sisters and while he likes women, he has no room for love. Both characters are strong and Branden is an excellent example of an alpha male who knows how to treat women with respect.

The push and pull between this couple as they fight their attraction and later their feelings, makes for some intense steamy scenes. This coupled with the dual points of view made it easy to connect with Cara and Branden and I was emotionally invested in their relationship. I devoured Filthy Rich, reading this more than 350 page book in under 48 hours which is testament to how much I enjoyed the story. It was excellent.

This is a hot, fast paced, and entertaining story. I enjoyed the interplay between the lead characters, with a good level of communication, which avoided the clichés of many modern romance novels. The plot had some depth, although wasn't overly complex, but the romance was sexy, hot and chemistry driven. Side players added lightness and humour, and should this turn into a series, had plenty of stories of their own to tell.

Thank you Ms. DePaul for another feisty read.
