The Carrero Effect: Red-Hot Trilogy Debut, Hailed “Amazing”, Pushes Fierce Female Heroine Under Literature’s Spotlight

Written from the boundless imagination of L.T. Marshall, ‘The Carrero Effect ~ The Promotion’ is volume one in the globally-bestselling ‘The Carrero Series’, which forces readers to confront issues including abuse, women’s rights and lust – in a story that will have palms sweating. Marshall has worked tirelessly to create a female protagonist with iron-clad inner strength, who is a true example to the world; and it’s no surprise one critic recently wrote, “It’s been a while since I’ve had a sleepless night because of the book. What have you done to me? So well written and all emotions out there in front of you, definitely hit the spot and I just couldn’t put it down”.




United Kingdom – Having dipped her toes in everything from the pop music world to animal rights and broadcasting, writer L.T. Marshall knows that being fiercely unstoppable is well within any woman’s grasp.

It’s no wonder, then, that this attitude formed the premise for her bestselling ‘The Carrero Series’ trilogy, which has become a guiding example to women around the world. Volume one, ‘The Carrero Effect ~ The Promotion: Jake & Emma’ has recently been signed to a global audiobook deal – proof that, like her female heroine, nobody can stop Marshall in her tracks.


She has a perfect job in a Manhattan empire, allowing her to live a quiet, organised and safe existence. A necessity after a childhood filled with abuse, bad memories, and a mother who was less than useless.

She’s worked hard to get where she is – and she has just landed an amazing promotion.

But it comes with a problem – and one that could derail everything she thought she needed in her life.

Emma’s new role is as the right-hand man for billionaire playboy JAKE CARRERO. He’s exactly the type of person who could drive her crazy – and not in a good way.

Chalk and cheese, he is everything she’s not. Compulsive, dominant and confident, with a seriously laid-back attitude to casual sex and dating.

Jake is the only one with the ability to steamroll over Emma’s manicured, ice maiden exterior. But Emma has no desire to let anyone close enough to hurt her again.

Jake needs to show Emma that even someone like him can change when that one girl that matters walks into your life.

Loveable, sexy characters, and deep emotional topics.

Contains some mature, adult content, and language.

 “In this trilogy, we follow Emma’s entire journey from being a PA to being…well…a whole lot more!” explains the author. “Every book focuses on that vital and important transition from victim to victor, under the dark cloud of abuse. While Emma is of course fictional, her resilience represents that unshakable strength every woman has deep inside of her.”

Continuing, “The book is selling amazingly well all over the world, and has recently been signed to an exciting audiobook deal. I feel the time is right to push it out to the public with gusto and remind every woman that, even through the vehicle of fiction, she has everything it takes to thrive in the world.”

Reviews have been extremely positive. For example, Jacqueline Bowen comments, “I started this book really as a favour as it is not my normal genre! OMG I was hooked from the beginning, I literally couldn’t put it down, I read it in 24 hours! The story of Emma & the enigmatic Jake is captivating. Their story is a rollercoaster, the author keeps you on the edge of your seat. The high and lows the author puts you through are vast. And, oh, what an ending!!! I couldn’t wait for book 2!!”

Lauren Dempster adds, “Before reading this book I had seen it on a few book clubs, they were all raving about it I decided to give it a go as it wasn’t my normal genre. After reading the first three chapters I was hooked. The story between Emma and Jake takes you through so many emotions, definitely a story I could read many times over.”
