Beautiful Revenge Excerpt

I sneak into Dimitri’s bedroom after dinner, making sure I’m not seen. He’s standing by the side cabinet pouring himself a drink. His eyes darken when he sees me, rejection flashing in them like lightning. “What do you want?”
I close the door behind me and walk towards him, my steps shaky. My hands are clammy and I have to keep wiping them on my skirt. I have to stay strong. “I’m here to ask you, no…to beg you—”
“Alena Ivanova is begging me?” Dimitri leans against the wall, a cruel glint in his eyes. He lifts his drink to the air as if to salute me. “Do go on.”
“Please,” my voice warbles, “leave.”
“Leave this room?” he asks with mock surprise.
Bastard. He knows very well what I’m asking. “Leave this house. Do business with my husband if you must, but please, leave me,” and Emily, “alone.”
He stares at me, the right side of his lip lifting in a horrible half-smile. “Get on your knees.”
“If you’re going to beg, do it properly.”
Dimitri drops to his knees in front of me. His face has cracked wide open, but it’s not anger showing raw and naked on his face.
It’s desperation.
“Alena,” he grabs my hand, “I beg of you, don’t do this.”
“Dimi, I—”
“Don’t marry him. Marry me.”
My breath catches in my lungs. Dimitri watches me from across the room over his scotch glass. From the darkness in his eyes, I can tell he’s remembering the same thing.
I stiffen. “You can’t be serious.”
“You want me to leave? Get. On. Your. Knees.”
He wants to crush me. To wound my pride like I did his. He is crueller than ever.
You did this to him.
I’ll do it if it will get him away from me, then I can just go back to my life. It was empty but at least I had Emily to love. Now, with him here, I can barely love her.
I slide to my knees. His eyes flash with fiery triumph. “Please, Dimitri. Please, leave.”
Dimitri places his drink on the side table and pushes off the wall, striding towards me. My breath turns to stone in my throat as he stands right before me. I am well aware of the suggestive position I am in. His cock is at eye level. I force myself not to look at it. Instead I look up, locked into the intensity of his stare. I know he wants to demean me. To embarrass me. My body burns with the indignity of it. Heat pools between my legs.
I gasp when he places his fingertips on my cheek, a riot of sparks cascading from his touch. He brushes my hair off my face almost tenderly. My heart skitters with hope.
His perfect lips pull into a smile. “No.”
The bastard. I leap to my feet, my hands in fists by my side. “You told me you’d leave if I begged.”
“No,” he says in a bored tone, “I told you to beg on your knees. I made no promises as to the outcome of your begging.” He turns away as if to dismiss me.
My body shakes with rage. I grab his arm and whip him around to face me. “I’ll tell my husband who you are. He’ll kick you—”
“You tell him who I am and I’ll tell him we slept together.”
I gasp. “You wouldn’t.” My contract. If I’m deemed to have been promiscuous I lose everything. More than lose everything, I’ll owe my husband a hundred thousand pounds. It’s a debt I can never hope to crawl out of.
Dimitri’s eyes glitter with mad pleasure. He has me over a barrel. And he knows it. “Do you wish to test me?”
He would do it too. I can see it in his eyes. “Edgar won’t believe you,” I try.
Dimitri grabs my upper arms with his hands, gripping me tight as vices. “Really? What are you doing in my room, Mrs Worthington?”
I struggle against him. “Let go.”
He pulls me closer, crushing me against his hard body. “Go on,” he says, “scream. Alert your husband to your presence in my room.”
I hate him. I struggle to knee him, to kick him. My damn skirt is in my way and he’s too close to get any leverage.
He’s much too close. All those old aches and wants flood back into my body. Five years I’ve dreamed of being this close to him again. His familiar touch, his familiar smell, his presence around me swilling like a poison. His touch burns me. He seeps into me. He sinks his teeth into my soul.
I am lightheaded. I need oxygen. I part my lips as I suck in air. His eyes dip to my mouth. Something flares in his eyes. Despite everything, he wants to give in to me too. I involuntarily lick my lips. His stare turns…ravenous.
He lets out a small hum, his lips vibrating along my skin as he traces them across my cheekbone towards my ear. “Mrs Worthington.” His voice is like liquid. “Alena,” he whispers, almost tenderly, sending me back to five years ago. I can feel his grip loosening on my arms but he doesn’t pull away. The ache coils tighter in my stomach. His hands move up my arms, his thumbs tracing the outer swell of my breasts sending shivers through me. This soft Dimitri is dangerous, more dangerous than the cold stranger. He appears too much like the old Dimitri, the one I love. I feel my self-control unwinding, my fingers curling into his shirt, as he presses his arousal against my hip. I bite down on a moan. Despite everything, my body screams to give in to him.
“Well,” his breath tickles my ear, “if I’m going to accuse you of being a whore, you might as well be one.”
I shove him back. He lets go of me, laughing.
“You bastard.” My breath heaves out of my lungs, my neck and cheeks flaming red. He’s playing with me. Toying with me. I want to strangle him.
He smirks at me and shrugs. “At least I can admit what I am.”
His words reach into my chest and wring my heart. “If you won’t go, at least leave Emily alone.”
“She is the one who won’t leave me alone.”
You kissed her.”
He smiles at me, cold and hateful. “Are you jealous?”
“Why are you like this? How could you be so cruel? Why do you want to torment me?”
“Why? Why?” His face cracks apart. “You broke me,” he roars. “You destroyed me when you chose him over me. You filled me so full of bitter hatred, it is all that I taste. It’s all I breathe.” His voice trembles with anguish.
My heart breaks right there. His eyes so open and raw, I can see right into his charred soul. The pieces of his heart that I broke all those years ago are still jagged and sharp. With every breath he takes, they cut him, making him bleed from the inside.
“I’m sorry, Dimi. I’m so sorry.”
“It’s too fucking late for sorry. It’s five years too late.”
It can’t be too late. It can’t.
Love can triumph over hate. It can.
I reach out for him. My voice is pained as I beg—as I beg— “Dimi, please…”
“Get out,” he spits, causing me to snatch my hand back. “It would be very cruel for your husband to find you here alone with me in my bedroom. We wouldn’t want him to get any wrong ideas.”
“I am not a cheater, Dimitri. Don’t you dare insinuate that I am.”
“Just a whore, then.”
His words slap me across my face. Pain spreads from where they strike me. “Fuck you.”
“No, you never did get to give that to me, did you? You gave that pleasure to your worthless husband.”
When Dimitri arrived at Worthington Manor, my hope took flight. To see him again, after all these years, to know that he found me, that he came here for me. Even after I realised that he wanted revenge, I still believed. Even after every cruel word, I still hoped. I thought that I could get through to him. That he couldn’t stay angry at me forever. I thought deep down that we would finally get our happily ever after.
But I have flown too close to the sun, allowed my hopes to soar too high. Hope has melted and my heart has plunged towards the ground, swirling and twisting, until finally crashing on the sharp, jagged rocks.
He still wants me. He hates me more.
He will never forgive me.
He will never love me again.

Sienna Blake has quickly become a one click author for me! Her stories are written so well that once you pick up one of her books, you can’t stop till you are done. They flow without a hitch and have the perfect mix of a great story, twist and turns and a few what the heck moments. 

Beautiful Revenge is no exception! I picked this book up and didn’t put it down till I finished devouring the entire book. What a ride this one was!

Alena Ivanova and Dimitri Volkov are young and barely surviving in Russia. The two are barely surviving. Hoping to find a way to a better life. Hoping to someday ‘make it’ in this big big world. But with hunger, with being cold, with having little to no money, people are forced to do things they normally wouldn’t think to do.

I’m a fish on a hook being dragged ever closer to the surface, while I struggle to remain in the murky depths where my heart and my secrets lay like sunken treasures. 

Years have past and neither have forgotten about each other. Their love for each other. The hurt they caused each other. The words spoken that can not be taken back. They have so many strikes against each other. But what is hidden deep inside, is the love they still feel for each other. 

How can a full belly be satisfying if my soul is left hungry. 

What a roller-coaster ride this book was! Once again, Sienna nailed it with this emotional story of Love, Hate, Revenge. Although this is a standalone book, there will be more to come!!!


I found Sienna with Dark Romeo series   and was enamoured by her acute insight of heartbreak and yearning. Very adept at painting a picture with her words, her stories leave an indelible mark on my heart.
This story is as ancient and as modern as you'd like it to be 


From the Magnificinet city of st.Petersburg  to fog laden moors of English countryside, the story journeys from squalor to luxury , love to revenge and promises to bitterness in a sweep .
If there was a theme song for this very ambitious story,  it'd be Endless Love 

Where do I begin, to tell the story of how crazy love can be
a sweet love story that is older than the sea

Sienna revives the good old tale of hate filled love. 
Dimitri Volkov "Wolf" is a lover scorned so bad, he burns like coalfire within. When it subsumes his entire existence, he throws the embers all around him and  sets the world on fire . In his goal to exact revenge upon his love & nemesis -Alena Ivanova, he becomes a ruthless wolf whose only mission in life is to hunt and destroy everything and everybody who's wronged him, shattered him and left him soulless . He's on a warpath, leaving a trail of destruction behind him.
I was hurting with Dimitri, I couldn't bear to watch his heart break , time and time again. I wanted to soothe his heart, wipe his tears, and Chase away his sorrow. The story made me cry at his raw pain & anguish
The soul of the story is pretty cynical in its mood . Sienna writes with lot of heart and does whole justice to characterisation. Alena may attract lot of hatred due to her selfish nature, but you have to remember she's a young girl with hopes of better life, better dreams.

I don’t want to starve anymore. I don’t want to freeze. I want a better life. More than anything. I want it so bad it hurts. I want it so bad I can taste it.
I live in the clouds, that my dreams are held together with wax. It will melt one day and I’ll come crashing down to the earth like Icarus.

She loves Dimitri but frustration seeps in at their state of affairs and in their stubborn pride they go about breaking each other's hearts . Their environment is the true villain of the story which drives them to desperate measures.


Dimitri is blinded with rage and hatred. He spews venom and wants to destroy the world .the entire plot aims at self realisation on both Alena & Dimi's part that,

Hate feels like a dagger aimed out, but it is really the poison coating the handle, soaking through your skin and into your blood.

A heartwrenching and Frustrating ride , i wanted to jump in the pages so many times. 
The music on their vinyl record player is till echoing in my ears. I'm still dancing with them, I'm also sliding on the floor with them. I'm hurling cuss words and burning with restrained passion with them. And I'm completely, utterly, deeply in love with them .
It's a must read , fabulous story , very well written, the one that will stay in your heart for days
