Un nuovo sport romance dall'autrice del bestseller Ricordati di Sognare, Rachel Van Dyken: il mondo del calcio non è mai stato così romatico!
Dopo che il suo fidanzato l’ha mollata sull’altare, l’ereditiera Mackenzie Dupont decide di concedersi comunque la sua luna di miele a Puerto Vallarta.
Il viaggio non inizia nel migliore dei modi: il volo è parecchio turbolento. Ma il lato positivo è che a occupare il sedile accanto c’è l’uomo più bello e gentile che Mack abbia mai incontrato, che prova a distrarla su un aereo di passeggeri in preda al panico. E Mack, presa dall’impulso e dal terrore di morire, decide di cogliere l’attimo e di baciarlo con passione.
Slade Rodriguez, calciatore definito il miglior attaccante del mondo, è in fuga dalla stampa, dai fan e perfino dalla sua famiglia. Dopo aver colto la sua fidanzata a tradirlo, è partito unicamente per godersi un po’ di solitudine nel lusso prima di unirsi alla sua nuova squadra. Tuttavia, quando la sua bocca subisce l’assalto di quella della meravigliosa ragazza al suo fianco - che sembra non avere idea della sua fama di atleta - i piani di solitudine vanno a monte. Da un bacio, Mack e Slade si ritrovano a trascorrere insieme l’intera giornata e, alla fine, una indimenticabile notte di passione. Al mattino, però, Slade viene riportato crudelmente alla realtà e senza pensarci due volte lascia Mack a risvegliarsi da sola.
Di ritorno a Seattle, Mack è pronta per un nuovo lavoro. Impiegare il tempo a fare l’assistente personale per qualche atleta pigro è molto più allettante che lavorare fianco a fianco del suo ex. Alla porta del suo nuovo cliente, però rimarrà sconvolta nel trovarsi faccia a faccia con… l’uomo che l'ha abbandonata in Messico senza una parola. Lo stesso che le ha mentito sulla sua vera identità. E tra l’altro, ora sembra provare un inspiegabile risentimento per lei. Tra incomprensioni, dispetti, e una chimica esplosiva, Mack e Slade dovranno imparare a conoscersi e andare d’accordo perché condividono più di quanto immaginano... compreso un nemico comune che trama nell’ombra. Ma se riusciranno a smettere di nascondersi dalle bugie che si sono raccontati e dai sentimenti che provano l’uno per l’altra, saranno loro a vincere al gioco dell’amore.
Accattivante, irresistibile. Publisher’s Weekly

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes an unexpected love story of family, secrets, and the most intimate of deceptions.
My estranged twin brother, Julian, was always the wonder boy—and was groomed to become CEO of our ruthless father’s corporation. My mother and me? Left behind. Now, years after tearing our family apart, my father dares to ask me for a favor? Pretend to be Julian while he fights to survive a tragic accident. It can save the company. Nobody will be the wiser. It’ll be our secret.
I can play Dad’s favorite. I’ll do it for Julian. And for my mother, who’ll want for nothing.
But this double life comes with a beauty of a hitch: my very real feelings for Julian’s fiancée, Isobel. Not only am I betraying Julian, I’m deceiving a woman I love. She doesn’t suspect a thing. As lies compound, lines are crossed and loyalties tested, all I can ask myself is…What have I done?
Because sooner or later something’s got to give. There’s no way I’m giving up Isobel. But once the truth is exposed, it might not be my choice at all.
A mafia romance about best friends turned enemies by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend…
I never thought my father would ask this of me, to become the second generation at Eagle Elite University, to rule with an iron fist, and to take care of anyone who gets in our way.
But ever since the incident.
Ever since Him.
There’s been a war in our little clique.
After all, a house divided cannot stand.
He’s the problem, not me.
He used to kiss me like I was his oxygen.
Now he looks at me like I’m his poison.
But we both drank it, again and again, never believing there would be a day when our love would start a war.
And our friendship would shatter into a million pieces.
Then again, the worst thing you could do in the mafia is hang on to hope that your life will be normal.
The second worst thing?
Fall in love with your best friend.
And heir to the Nicolasi throne.
A mafia romance about love and loss by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.
…When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
— Mary Elizabeth Fyre
"I'm sorry for your loss." I would rather be tortured for an eternity than hear those damn words from one more person, as if Claire, my dead fiancé, was a cell phone or car keys.
How about, I'm sorry your life is over.
I'm sorry you want to die too.
I'm sorry you see her in your dreams and wake up only to relive the nightmare.
I'm supposed to be the strongest of them all. Ash Abandonato, ruler, assassin, made man, brother, friend—instead, I hurt everyone I touch in hopes that they'll feel even a sliver of the pain that bears down on my shoulders.
I didn't lose.
It was taken from me.
And it's all her fault, Annie Smith.
I daydream about her death.
And then I close my eyes, and I see her soft smile. I feel her touch, her kiss—it was a mistake what we did that night, but I can't take it back, and now she's under my father's protection—my protection.
My worst enemy.
The woman I'm the most attracted to.
I can't decide if I want to strangle her or kiss her, and now that she's stuck in my life, my only goal is to make her feel the same loss I do and destroy her in the process.
I'll trick her with my touch.
Seduce her with my kiss.
And in the end, when my enemy is at her most vulnerable—I'll bring down an entire Empire and continue my reign as King.
Bow down, I'll say as I bring the Five Families to their knees.
A mafia romance about betrayal and faith by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.
"The truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie hurts forever."—Ryan Bigge
I grew up knowing it would happen one day.
Believing that I would fall into my father's footsteps and become a monster of my own making.
So I fought it.
And then one day… I destroyed.
And realized I loved the pain.
Obsessed over the feeling.
So I cut again and again and again.
She saw my rage, my madness, and tried to stop me from destroying myself, and I hated her for it, pushing her away past the point of no return.
Izzy Abandonato was supposed to be mine.
But there are some things people can never come back from. I hurt her, she hurt me, and now I'm living a lie. Telling the ones I love that I'm on one side when for years I've been forced to play both.
I'm no angel.
And I may single-handedly bring down the Cosa Nostra—by default.
I, Maksim Sinacore, will have my vengeance.
I will win her back.
Even if it means I have to kill everyone in my path.
The pain masks the betrayal.
I never realized that one day—I'd be the very rat that I hated. That I was sent to kill. But once you're deep in a lie—you'll do anything to hide the truth.
She fell for the bad one.
She fell for the sinner.
So why does that make me smile?
A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep —Robert Frost
I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I'd be the very monster I was protecting her from.
She didn't know it was me.
She didn't know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.
I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.
The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.
Because we don't sin in silence.
And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.
My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.
And when she found out—I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.
Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.
The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.
We both carry scars.
But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.
I'll take it.
Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato's perfect angel would pick me—over her perfect life.
"I broke you," I confessed.
"The worst part… is that you liked it," she snapped right back.
Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.
May God bless our tainted souls.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the final standalone in the bestselling Mafia Royals Romances…
A love triangle for the ages.
A contemporary mafia retelling of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
I will do anything for my family, and as the heir to the Campisi Mafia throne, I fall on my sword and do what's expected of me—it wasn't an accident that I was given the name King.
I marry the girl I love—who's already in love with someone else, and because I'm a masochist, I make him her personal bodyguard.
After all, who better to protect the woman I love than the man she loves?
I have seven days after our wedding to own her—body and soul.
Seven days to show her everything I feel.
But tragedy strikes, and I'm forced to take the weight of the mafia crown on my head.
Now I need my Queen by my side.
I don't know who's with me or against me, but I will rule them all with an iron fist and make everyone proud.
As our seven days come to an end, I wonder how I will ever be able to let her go.
"Until it ends," I whisper.
A tear slides down her cheek. "Until it ends."

We went from being high school enemies to making out one fateful night at college to him being a giant D and making me cry.
Now we’re both interns at the same company.
Mortal enemy interns.
So when the chance pops up to finally beat him at something, to land my dream job plus a bonus? I don’t even blink.
I’m in. All in.
I mean, how hard can it be?
The managers say it’s like the Olympics for interns. All we have to do is play a few silly games, and if we win—our futures are unicorns and free wine for all.
The only problem? Jack’s my partner, and in order to win, we will have to get along.
As the stakes get higher, so does the heat, and damn is he hot when he’s… never mind. I can focus. I can totally focus and not make out with him or end up in his bed—again.
I can do it.
For the sake of my career, I can do it.
I just need a blindfold, sage, and a lot of prayers.
My job is the only thing I have right now. My focus is strong.
But when that stupid guy smiles, all I can think about is that one kiss, followed by the second, and I wonder if my priorities are in order or if I’m falling for the enemy once again.
