Prologue

Micaella was exhausted from keeping the secret. She felt as though she would have to live up to an expectation of being as perfect as how Paolo saw her. She was far from perfect. Stolen from her homeland to traffic drugs and later to prostitute herself, she felt Paolo deserved a girlfriend better than her.

She sighed as she dragged her feet, her steps echoed in the empty alley to her apartment. He was perfect, not her. He should have someone perfect too. Besides, Paolo’s twin brother Lucas had a scrutinizing and unforgiving look. Did he know? She always wondered. What exactly did he know?

It didn’t matter, she reminded herself. She would tell Paolo the truth. She convinced herself that if he loved her enough, he would accept her somehow. Paolo was not the type of person who judged others.

She heard footsteps as she turned the key in her doorknob. Looking up, she noticed a very familiar figure. “Paolo?”

“Micaella.” the figure came closer and she looked away. It’s so like him to follow her. She had to think of something. “I need to talk to you.” he added.

“Paolo, it’s late.” she managed. She may have decided to fight for their relationship, to tell him the truth about her past and all that, but she was supposed to carefully choose her words first. She swung open her door and gathered the strength to meet his eyes. She never let him in the apartment where she received her clients. It didn’t feel...appropriate.

Her eyes widened when she turned. It wasn’t Paolo.

“I know what you’re hiding.”

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

kendraberentz20: This book/novel was one of the best if not THE best that I have ever read. I don't like the cliff hanger at the end though... I want to know what happens next!!!! I love how they bound together at the end and stayed together! I like how they are bound like family even though they didn't know each...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

salma elsamy: it's really awesome , and I really like the whole idea of the story . I also love how simple the vocabularies because English is my second language and the simplicity of the story is great for me . And I will definitely buy it if it's published.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.
