But that means leaving her once more.<br /><br />She says she'll come with me, and having her by my side will unbreak my heart . . . or destroy it.<br /><br /><b>That's the chance I have to take.</b>

From <i>USA Today</i> bestselling author W Winters comes a emotionally-gripping, standalone, romantic suspense. <br /><br />I didn’t need anyone to tell me; I knew he was forbidden with a single glance.<br /><br />He was a boy I should’ve been afraid of, and definitely a boy I should’ve never wanted. No matter how much neither of those statements were true.<br /> <br />From the first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place. And years later, it hasn’t softened.<br /><br />We lived on the same street and went to the same school, although he was a year ahead. <br /><br />Even so close, he was untouchable.<br /><br />He was bad news and I was the sad girl who didn’t belong.<br /><br /> <br /><br />One night changed everything. <br /><br />We both had secrets. We both saw the pain in each other’s eyes. <br /><br />The gaze that gave me chills turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of me. <br /><br />But that didn’t change who he was. A man who would take everything from me.

<p><b><i>Wall Street Journal</i> and <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Robert Dugoni’s coming-of-age story is, according to <i>Booklist</i>, “a novel that, if it doesn’t cross entirely over into John Irving territory, certainly nestles in close to the border.”</b></p><p>Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes. Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam “Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother called his ocular albinism. Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered, buoyed by his mother’s devout faith, his father’s practical wisdom, and his two other misfit friends.</p><p>Sam believed it was God who sent Ernie Cantwell, the only African American kid in his class, to be the friend he so desperately needed. And that it was God’s idea for Mickie Kennedy to storm into Our Lady of Mercy like a tornado, uprooting every rule Sam had been taught about boys and girls.</p><p>Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design—especially not the tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends, his hometown, and the life he’d always known. Running from the pain, eyes closed, served little purpose. Now, as he looks back on his life, Sam embarks on a journey that will take him halfway around the world. This time, his eyes are wide open—bringing into clear view what changed him, defined him, and made him so afraid, until he can finally see what truly matters.</p>
