From the quintessential author of wartime Germany, A Time to Love and a Time to Die echoes the harrowing insights of his masterpiece All Quiet on the Western Front. After two years at the Russian front, Ernst Graeber finally receives three weeks’ leave. But since leaves have been canceled before, he decides not to write his parents, fearing he would just raise their hopes. Then, when Graeber arrives home, he finds his house bombed to ruin and his parents nowhere in sight. Nobody knows if they are dead or alive. As his leave draws to a close, Graeber reaches out to Elisabeth, a childhood friend. Like him, she is imprisoned in a world she did not create. But in a time of war, love seems a world away. And sometimes, temporary comfort can lead to something unexpected and redeeming. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

Matilda Gray is an expert on antiquities, especially the Roman and Celtic artifacts found in Great Britain. But one thing Matilda has learned is that such relics of time past are not valued only by museums but also by unscrupulous collectors, and the illegal trade in such treasures can be deadly. Gareth March is a Scotland Yard detective who must work - reluctantly -- with Matilda to solve the murder of a woman who knew too much about stolen antiquities. Solving the murder will earn him a promotion. And more--perhaps a greater treasure than Celtic gold is a relationship appearing when he least expects it . . . The murder case, the case of the stolen antiquities, and the treasure coming to light at the excavation of a Roman fort are tied inextricably together. At last Matilda and Gareth have to stop arguing and begin a race against time to prevent another murder. They do, after all, agree on one thing: the risk of death makes life and love all the sweeter. There's always time enough to die.

Photographer Cat Cochran has been to exotic places most people only dream about—but all she wants to do is settle down and get her life in order. One last assignment and she can put her past behind her—forgetting about her heart's disastrous misadventures as she loses herself in the natural beauty she has so far only glimpsed through a camera's lens. But first she must photograph the mysterious and elusive ship designer T.H. Danvers and his awesome creations. A man in a million Travis Danvers is dangerous—a millionaire with an athlete's body; an enigmatic charmer capable of breaking down Cat's well-constructed defenses with a buccaneer's arrogance and flourish. She knows she must resist him, for experience has taught her that pain is the eventual price of the pleasure to be found in the arms of such a man. But caught in the waves of a sensual sea, Cat hears sirens whisper seductively, telling her to abandon all caution; to trust and love Travis with all her soul, and to ride with him on the winds of forever.

In 1965, the army proclaimed him a hero. Now, thirty-four years later, Walter Lewis and his wife, Karen, must face Sergei Godunov and the Murphy brothers, who claim Walter was never a hero at all. To them, he’d been a coward. After years of tracking him, they finally catch up with Walter in Spanish Fort, Alabama. The Murphys believe that Walter ran from a vicious hand-to-hand battle, leaving their brother behind to be slaughtered. Sergei Godunov, once a Russian advisor to the Vietcong, has his own ax to grind. He blames Walter for the death of his wife and son in a Russian gulag. Caught, Karen slips into a coma, and Walter has a heart attack. Unconscious in intensive care, they have an out-of-body experience that hurls them back in time to an adventurous past that was filled with war, lies and deceit and unlawful death. It was the time that they’d first fallen in love, too, after he’d been wounded and she’d been his nurse. They’d vowed to survive despite the odds. But Sergei Godunov and the Murphys are not interested in love or vows or odds, either back then or now. They’re in town for revenge.
