Penelope Blake is a world famous cosplayer with a quick wit, charming personality, and uncanny ability to find herself in danger. When she discovers a mysterious flash drive in a boot from the cosplay she wore at last month’s comic con—that was bombed—she decides to turn it in to her friend’s brother who works for ARC Angel Protection. Too bad he was a recent hot fling that was supposed to be a one-time thing.
Levi Foster left the military to work for ARC Angel Protection. Promoted after a few short years, he now manages his own team. Sharp, resourceful, top of his game…and able to avoid relationships like a champ. But when his sister’s sexy friend runs into some trouble, he’s determined to help. It has nothing to do with the fact they spent the night together a few weeks ago, or that it was so hot, so enjoyable he considered breaking his one-night rule. But this job is about the flash drive and possible threat to the people in his city, not his empty bed.
Working the case is easy, resisting their chemistry? Impossible, and soon they agree to a few more one-nighters. But when lust turns into something much stronger, Levi isn’t sure he’s ready…until Penelope disappears. Making sense of his heart won’t matter if he doesn’t save it first.

Furthermore, Finn Wilder is single, according to his coworkers and viewers—Finnatics. I don’t exist.
Despite his marriage fears and questionable relationship status, Finn pressures me to move in with him. Still, traditional by today’s standards, I want to marry first, adhering to my beliefs, just as he desperately clings to his, regarding not starting a family with me.
As much as I love Finn, I’ve reached my limit with the lies, secrets, and his irrational fear. Something has got to give. We’re forever at a standstill, a faceoff which one of us will lose. Everything.

Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun. Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did—that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends.
The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.
Plunged into the world of the “ordinary” Munich girl who was her mother’s confidante—and a tyrant’s lover—Anna finds her every belief about right and wrong challenged. With Hannes’s help, she retraces the path of two women who met as teenagers, shared a friendship that spanned the years that Eva Braun was Hitler’s mistress, yet never knew that the men they loved had opposing ambitions.

As Anna’s journey leads back through the treacherous years in wartime Germany, it uncovers long-buried secrets and unknown reaches of her heart to reveal the enduring power of love in the legacies that always outlast war.
