Sinopsis 

Cuando en 1924 Helena Lennox se presenta con sus padres en Nápoles por una colaboración arqueológica con las excavaciones pompeyanas, una desconocida le entrega un amuleto de protección con una advertencia: «La ciudad no es segura, los ángeles ya no velan por nosotros».

Durante los siguientes días, los Lennox se codean con una princesa solitaria, un pariente inesperado y un viejo amigo perseguido por la mala suerte mientras el cerco de los crímenes que están atemorizando a la ciudad se estrecha a su alrededor. Las víctimas son chicas jóvenes sin ningún elemento en común; el culpable a ojos de todos, alguien muy conveniente para las autoridades.


Y sobre ese misterio se alarga la sombra del Príncipe de los Prodigios, un intrigante alquimista cuyos inventos siguen en boca de todos. Según cuenta la leyenda, ideó una carroza que se desplazaba sobre el agua, un carbón que no se consumía... y un brebaje capaz de despertar a aquellos atrapados en un sueño profundo

Sinopsis 

He’s a player.

He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.


And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.

Sinopsis 

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up... and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman... one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.
