Summary

The restaurant is crowded and noisy. The man sits by the window, watching the grey sky, bored, as he is every Monday morning. Suddenly he turns and she's there, standing in front of him. Years have passed since he last saw her, since the day he left, without an explanation, without a reason. Yet only now does he realize he never stopped loving her, even for a second. When she tries to run away from him, too shocked by the sudden onslaught of emotions, he stops her. And as they embrace, surrounded by passersby, they promise to hold on, to make mistakes again. To love each other. Deeply and forever.

With his intimate, almost whispered style, Pedro Chagas Freitas takes the reader on a journey to explore the deepest layers of their feelings and to discover the truth about love; the kind of love that touches, grabs and thrills you, that discovers and conceals, that wounds and heals, that seizes you and sets you free.

But now here he is, right in front of her, offering her his lips . . .  
    Embittered by war, Seth returns home to inherit the title that would have once won him the woman of his dreams.

    By USA Today Bestselling Author, Lexy Timms. 
    Ethan Stark's security company is one of—if not—the best. With his Special Forces background, coupled with his family's resources, he's the perfect man for the job. He just wasn't prepared for the politician's daughter with a body that could make grown men weep, and an attitude that puts his teeth on edge. 
    Ethan has three rules: 
    Never get personally involved. 
    Never get blindsided.  
    And never screw around. Ever.  
    He's somehow managed to break all three rules and now needs to figured out how to fix the mess he's in. With Diana missing and Ethan's team searching for her, the clock is ticking down. 
    Except Diana isn't playing the game Ethan thinks she's playing. The threat on the Logans is real—and dangerous. Diana can't seem to get it through her pretty head that this is a game of life and death. 
    Ethan hauls her off to a safe house, determined to keep this beautiful, infuriating woman out of harms way. But, being cooped up with Diana is more tempting than he thought, and soon Ethan finds himself spiraling into the abyss of Diana's eyes. Of her warm body against his. 
    All the while, the threat looms. Can Ethan keep her safe? Can he reconcile his feelings for her with a promise he made in his past? Or will the two of them collide like crashing waves and leave nothing but destruction in their wake?
