A new adult contemporary romance duology about falling in love with someone you can’t have and the heartbreaking mess that unfolds when you take a chance and follow your heart.
From the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of THE PACT and WHERE SEA MEETS SKY comes a BOX SET of the bestselling novels Love, in English and Love, in Spanish, available only for a LIMITED TIME.
Love, in English synopsis:
He’s thirty-eight. I’m twenty-three.
He speaks Spanish. I speak English.
He lives in Spain. I live in Canada.
He dresses in thousand-dollar suits. I’m covered in tattoos.
He’s married and has a five-year old daughter.
I’m single and can’t commit to anyone or anything.
Until now.Because when they say you can’t choose who you fall in love with, boy ain’t that the damn truth.
To a restless dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead of spending her summer interning for her astronomy major, she would fly to Spain where she’d spend a few weeks teaching conversational English to businessmen and women, all while enjoying free room and board at an isolated resort. But while Vera expected to get a tan, meet new people and stuff herself with wine and paella, she never expected to fall in love.
Mateo Casalles is unlike anyone Vera has ever known, let alone anyone she’s usually attracted to. While Vera is a pierced and tatted free spirit with a love for music and freedom, Mateo is a successful businessman from Madrid, all sharp suits and cocky Spanish charm. Yet, as the weeks go on, the two grow increasingly close and their relationship changes from purely platonic to something…more.
Something that makes Vera feel alive for the first time.
Something that can never, ever be.
Or so she thinks.
Love, in Spanish synopsis:
Successful, wealthy and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only sweetened the deal.
I have not read this series by Karina Halle, but I have read six of her books and enjoyed them all. One thing that I truly love about this author is that she can write in various tropes. Many authors stick to a sub-genre of romance, but Karina Halle moves from dark and gritty to romantic comedies seamlessly. Her characters are always well developed and complex, and the journies her characters go on are often fraught with heavy and severe obstacles. Reading a Karina Halle book will certainly take the reader on an emotional journey, and you can travel along with these characters during the whole series for just .99 cents.
