»Eine epische Dark Romance mit herzzerreißender Tiefe und knisternder Sinnlichkeit!«– Anna Zaires, Bestsellerautorin der New York Times
Vor sechs Jahren hat Harold Dalton mich mit einem fingierten Diebstahl reingelegt und mich ins Gefängnis gebracht, um meinen Diamantenfund zu stehlen. Im Austausch für die Grabungsrechte gab er seine Tochter Jack Clarke. Heute bin ich ein freier Mann, und will meine Rache. Sechs Jahre voller Grausamkeiten machen aus Menschen Bestien. Ich werde mir das zurückholen, was er mir gestohlen hat, und noch mehr. Ich bin nicht an seinen Immobilien oder Aktien interessiert. Ich will sein Kleingeld nicht. Ich will seinen größten Schatz, die schöne, mental instabile Angelina Dalton-Clarke.
Mit ihren Milliarden ist sie die reichste Witwe des Landes, und auch die verrückteste. Ihre selbstverletzenden Tendenzen hatten Jack dazu veranlasst, sie für unzurechnungsfähig erklären zu lassen, bevor er sich eine Waffe an den Kopf hielt und sich das Gehirn rausblies. Lina darf keinen Cent ihres Reichtums anfassen. Ihr Vater verwaltet ihre Finanzen und hat alle Unterschriftsvollmachten. Als ihr Mann werden mir diese Aufgaben zufallen, aber wenn sie denkt, dass ich sie nur wegen ihres Geldes will, irrt sie sich gewaltig.
Quando la studentessa in difficoltà economiche Valentina Haynes scopre che suo fratello deve un debito impossibile al più pericoloso strozzino di Johannesburg, c'è solo un modo per salvare entrambe le loro vite: deve diventare proprietà di Gabriel Louw. Per nove anni, Valentina soddisferà ogni bisogno di Gabriel, a prescindere da quanto esso sia oscuro e depravato.
Nove anni e poi la libererà. Questa è la promessa fatta da Gabriel.
Ma non è un uomo buono, e gli uomini crudeli non sempre mantengono la parola...
Cruda, grintosa e stupenda, la turbolenta storia d’amore di Valentina e Gabriel vi tormenterà anche dopo l’ultima pagina.

His assigned vocation is to uncover the Resistance movements popping up around the earth, and eliminate them. New information about a fast-growing Resistance camp sends him to Costa Rica, home of the largest Krinar Center.
His informant is a human girl.
She wants to make a deal - her traitorous family's lives in exchange for information - but Zavir doesn't make deals, and he takes no prisoners. When the time comes to wipe out the secret organization, his pretty, innocent little mole will learn the truth. She made a deal with the devil, and the price is something far more tantalizing than information.
