La última vuelta del scaife nos relata la dilatada y escabrosa vida de Josué, un judío que huye de Alemania a los diecinueve años, en los albores del nazismo, empujado por un amor imposible. El protagonista nos narra su historia desde el ocaso de su aventura vital, cuando al fin alcanza la serenidad ansiada. Educado en un ambiente judío ortodoxo, necesitará una larga «travesía por el desierto» para comprender, a través de los dos grandes amigos que encuentra en el camino, que más allá de religiones y culturas existe un denominador común a todo ser humano: la capacidad de sobreponerse al instinto de supervivencia por el bien más preciado de la humanidad, el amor. Al igual que el scaife da vueltas incansable para convertir un diamante en bruto en una cegadora estrella, la vida girará alrededor de Josué durante casi un siglo, implicándolo en las situaciones más adversas e inesperadas, hasta hacerle comprender que en realidad su viaje no era una búsqueda, sino una huída de sí mismo.

Past and present are interwoven in this story of everlasting love, where the shadow of witchcraft and man’s greed are defeated by one woman’s passion that transcends space and time. Brianda, a young engineer, leaves her comfortable life in Madrid to learn more about her ancestors. When she travels to a cold, isolated village high in the Pyrenees to explore her roots, Brianda discovers a family secret—and a new love interest. The mysterious Corso, who is challenging destiny by restoring the neglected manor he has inherited, offers to help Brianda in her research. Together they uncover another woman named Brianda in the family archives, a woman who lived four centuries ago. Heiress to the distinguished lord of Orrun, Brianda of Lubich defied convention by refusing to marry and carry on the family lineage. In a land convulsed by wars, twenty-four women were accused in one of the most dramatic episodes in the history of Spanish witchcraft. Due to her unconventional ways, Brianda became a target. She makes a promise to her true love, a promise she may not live to keep.

Three women, three centuries and the same bone-china chocolate pot: Sara, the scion of a dynasty of chocolatiers from Barcelona, who prides herself on maintaining the family tradition; Aurora, the daughter of a nineteenth-century maidservant, for whom chocolate is a forbidden luxury; Mariana, the wife of the most famous seventeenth-century chocolate manufacturer, an official purveyor to the French court and the inventor of a revolutionary chocolate mill. Through her passion for chocolate, Care Santos takes us on a spellbinding journey through its evolution, from the cocoa bean's first arrival in Europe to the many sophisticated products derived from it today, and shows us how we can understand the great shifts in history through the study of small things. Luscious and addictive, this novel will delight the reader's senses from start to finish.

Bulletproof Trilogy, Book 1 “This book is my idea of the perfect vacation read — a fast-paced thriller mixed with a dash of romance.”—First for Women Magazine Virgil Skinner served fourteen years for a murder he didn’t commit. He’s finally been exonerated, but he can’t escape the gang he joined in order to survive. They’ll do anything to keep him from telling what he knows.

The California Department of Corrections needs someone to infiltrate another gang, one that’s taking control of the state’s most notorious supermax. Virgil agrees to do it under an alias—in exchange for his sister’s protection. Chief Deputy Warden Peyton Adams is opposed to having Virgil in her prison. How will she protect him if things go bad? Besides, she’s far too attracted to him; she might even be falling in love with him. That makes her all the more desperate to keep him safe—and it gives him someone else to lose.

Frankenstein meets The Shadow of the Wind in a Gothic thriller set in the diabolical city of fin-de-siecle Barcelona. Daniel Amat has left Spain and all that happened there behind him. Having just achieved a brilliant role in Ancient Languages at Oxford University and an even more advantageous engagement, the arrival of a letter - a demand - stamped Barcelona comes like a cold hand from behind. He arrives back in that old, labyrinthine and near-mythic city a few days before the great 1888 World Fair, amid dread whispers of murders - the injuries reminiscent of an ancient curse, and bearing signs of the genius 16th century anatomist, Vesalius. Daniel is soon pulled into the depths of the crime, and eventually into the tunnels below Barcelona, where his own dark past and the future of science are joined in a terrible venture - to bring the secret of Vesalius to life. Gothic and gripping, this historical thriller makes of Barcelona a diabolical character - emerging out of the dark into a new electrical age, aflame with spirit, superstition and science. Published in eighteen countries, Jordi Llobregat's bestselling first novel mixes a passionate setting and cryptic mystery into a genre-crossing phenomenon.

When the daughter of a prominent politician and her boyfriend disappear, officials suspect foul play. Seasoned inspector Francisco Bermejo and rookie brainiac Pablo Roncero team up to investigate, but their hope for an open-and-shut case quickly crumbles. They are on the trail of a serial killer—one whose motivations are as mysterious as the horrific, elaborate tableaus he leaves behind as clues. Bermejo and Roncero must overcome their differences, a byzantine bureaucracy, and the distraction of a beautiful journalist as they race across Spain in pursuit of the murderer. They can only guess where he will strike next—and with the gruesome game the killer's playing, guesswork is not nearly good enough.

Una historia de superación y de fe en uno mismo que nos enseña valores como la solidaridad, la amistad o el compañerismo. Nano se ganará el corazón de los lectores y les hará sufrir, emocionarse y ansiar justicia para nuestro protagonista. Nano es un muchacho, tímido, frágil y despistado, abocado a una prolongada soledad por el rechazo constante al que se ve sometido por sus compañeros. Este aislamiento involuntario, indirectamente, le ayuda a pasar muchas horas haciendo lo que más le gusta: escribir y dibujar. Las largas horas de retiro que pasa en su cuarto dan lugar a que desarrolle una gran imaginación, y es precisamente esta fantasía la que finalmente le da la oportunidad de ser escuchado y aceptado por los chicos de su edad.
