Romance meets duty in this modern day love story. Can Dante convince Olivia to take a chance on a future with him, or will Olivia’s past hold her back?
What happens when you’re made to retire long before it’s your time? For Dante it means flying halfway around the world to a beach where no one knows who he is. He must come home to his family and country and serve in a capacity he left ten years before, when he joined the military. What that capacity will look like, nobody knows, and he is given mere weeks to figure it out.
Olivia has no intention of starting an affair. She wants a beach, some sun, and the space to heal her heart. It’s been more than a year since her husband died and she hasn’t done much more than take care of their children in that time. This vacation is for her, but taking a beer to a stranger at the insistence of the staff, and making a five-minute friend? That won’t cut into her time to much, right?
“My love for you is like π, irrational and never ending.”
When do feelings turn from a crush to love? Do you know it is happening, or is it a gradual slide that you don’t notice? It’s a question Maeve would like to answer.
Sometimes love hits you at the worst and most inappropriate times. It is irrational but never ending. In those times you have to have the patience to see things through. And faith, Philip thought, that the love he kept to himself would be returned in time.
It’s impossible, said her pride. It’s risky, said her experience. It’s pointless, said her reason.
Give it a try, whispered her heart.
There were few things Quinn didn’t know, and nothing she couldn’t find out. She knew with absolute certainty she didn't want to be anything more than cousin to Marco, the heir to the Maderian throne. If only her head could win the war against the combined forces of her heart and body.
She was smart, beautiful, and funny. Somewhere in all the years Marco had known Quinn, his heart had fallen at her feet. He had tried to ignore it, forget it, drown it in beautiful women, and yet his love for her was there at every turn. He refused to let it sit alone any longer.
Quinn has trained hard to learn how to protect herself and her family. But is she ready to learn how to be protected? Is Marco ready to deal with the fallout of bringing peace to his country? Will he be able to save Quinn from herself?
