The Last Heartbeat

The Last Heartbeat (Love at Last, Book 1) by Katerina Simms

Agathe Santos made a vow. To love her child until the very last heartbeat. Hers. Not theirs…

Four years after her daughter’s death, Agathe knows that hope is for losers and so is love. Work has become her greatest escape. But even the world’s loneliest woman can’t hide forever…

Reluctant CEO Luke Tindall wants a wife, a family, a love that will last. He might have hired Agathe to save his company and deal with his goofy brother, but from the very first meeting, he has desired far more than her sharp wit and tireless work ethic. If only her past wasn’t such a big secret. If only that secret wasn’t a wound she didn’t want healed. Maybe then she’d share more with him than her body.

But even as Agathe can no longer deny her feelings for Luke, love is not something she thinks she deserves. Now she must do the impossible: deal with her unresolved issues, or lose Luke forever.
