His eyes roamed over me, my face, my sweats. He licked his lips, wetting them before speaking. "My god, you look incredible." I looked down, trying to hide my face from him, so he wouldn't see how uncomfortable I was with the compliment. His fingers came under my chin, tipping my face to him. I searched his eyes, all thoughts of everything leaving my head, except how wonderful it felt to be near him. He cupped my face, like he had done the previous day, stroking his thumb against the skin of my cheek. His other hand came to run through the length of my hair, the soft waves catching around his knuckles. "Every time I see you, you take my breath away. It's better every time," he chuckled, a deep rumble that came from his chest. Ophelia Hamilton has never been interested in the things that most other teenage girls did.

Clearing his throat before he spoke, explained, "I'm Xander Mancuso, the executor of your grandfather's will. Proving that you are his only living relative, you will become his sole heir." Gaping at him, I swiped the hair back from my face. What? I thought my grandfather had died when I was little? That's what my mom had always told me. Who was this man? What had my mom hid from me? Why did he make me feel the way that I did?
"Love is what made human kind weak, or don't you know your mythology?" I watched her slink like water around the room, each of her movements fluid. She picked up the little knick-knacks I had around the cottage, scrutinizing them in the most unusual way. Her golden hair fell in waves around her shoulders and back, reflecting every piece of light as crystal would. Jack Cooper thought all hope was lost when his boat capsized while on open water.
