Cover Reveal from Vanessa Luisa

Title: Merciful Vows
Series: The Giannotti World #1
Author: Vanessa Luisa
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Tash, Outlined with Love Designs
Release Date: May 25, 2021


It's impossible to shield your heart from a man who knows you so well. A man who is your husband. The father of your children. The love of your life. A man like Giulio Giannotti.

I thought we would last forever...but we won't. Not when he doesn't believe our abducted child is still alive. Not if I continue to lose myself in this chaotic hope. Not until our daughter is found.

It scares me...the stark reality of how cruel life can be to us, how twisted secrets turn to sacrifice and how there's always someone in the misty shadows lurking...watching.

Tonight marks six months since we lost it all. It should bind Giulio and me closer together, yet the moment his hot gaze lands on mine, it's all over. The pact I made with myself to reserve all my nerves shatters into a million pieces as those eyes burn straight through me.

They're heavenly fire. And it's as if he can see me. All of me...

If this is supposed to be the end of us, then why does it feel like it's only just the beginning?

Merciful Vows is a bittersweet second chance romantic suspense standalone and the first book in the emotionally gripping interconnected world set in Seattle: 'The Giannotti World'.




The wall raised between us fortifies, rendering us incapable of comprehending who we really are at this second. This is not us. This hatred towards each other is not us. I don’t know what we are…but I can’t be this. Not for our kids. Not for our hearts. No. In the same breath, Giulio gently cups my face and draws me to his chest. He’s forced to bear witness to the way I crumble at his touch. How lost I get in his smell. How much I miss him. How intimately tender this moment truly is.
Giulio knows me.
His arms that carry the weight of the world wrap around my waist in a tight embrace. When sobs ripple through me, one of his hands slides up to the back of my head, weaving through my hair, and he holds me even closer. It’s here where my fingers clutch his shoulder blades over his cashmere sweater.
Right now, we cannot be any more connected.
I need this embrace.
Just for a moment. Just until my trembling soul stills.
“It’s okay. I’ve got you,” his hot murmur promises. “I’ve got you.”
It’s been so long that I’ve almost forgotten the feeling. Almost. The warmth that spreads across my body is a reminder of everything that is Giulio Giannotti. He knows and owns every single part of me. My heart. My mind. My body. My soul. He has since I was twenty-one and will continue to do so until I leave this earth.
That’s the truth I hide myself from.
The fact that I can’t control how I feel, even after all the substance we’re missing in our lives, scares me. I’m scared of giving him that piece of me again and losing even more. I’m scared of confusing our children with the back and forth. I fear redemption. I fear a second chance. And equally so, I fear hope will fail me.
At the same time, this is Giulio.
My husband.
My best friend.
My everything.
This is the man I vowed I would do anything for. The man I would still die for.
It will always be him.
Even through the hollowing pain, my heart still beats wildly every time he enters the room. He should despise me. I should despise him. We should disregard how the other feels.
But we can’t…
