Staff Pick & Review by Jane Nutter

An international bestseller by a fresh new voice, escape into this summer’s most-buzzed book, ALL IN, where beneath Sweden’s midnight sun the elite prowl parties for conquests, trade secrets like currency, and the cat-and-mouse game of seduction between two lovers is poised to change the power balance forever...Luxurious, fun and escapist, ALL IN really does have it all!


Trust is the most precious commodity of all…

In the cutthroat world of Sweden’s financial elite, no one knows that better than corporate raider David Hammar. Ruthless. Notorious. Unstoppable. He’s out to hijack the ultimate prize: Investum. After years of planning, all the players are in place; he needs just one member of the aristocratic owning family on his side—Natalia De la Grip.

Elegant, brilliant, driven to succeed in a man’s world, Natalia is curious about David’s unexpected invitation to lunch. Everyone knows that he is rich, dangerous, and unethical. But she soon discovers he is also deeply scarred.

The attraction between these two is impossible, but the long Swedish nights unfold an affair that will bring to light shocking secrets, forever alter a family, and force both Natalia and David to confront their innermost fears and desires.

Praise for ALL IN by Simona Ahnrstedt:

“Ahrnstedt neatly balances lusty romance and the tension of corporate scheming at the highest level. Fans of strong women and powerful men will gladly buy stock in this story.”– Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

“The author’s ability to skillfully fuse a luxurious lifestyle, a refreshingly different Swedish setting, a plot riddled with revenge and financial intrigue, and plenty of steamy romance means All In will be the must-have leisure read everywhere this summer.”– Booklist

“This passionate love story set in the cutthroat world of big business and venture capital was a bestseller in Sweden.
