Thanks for asking! Sounds like quite a plot. I've put about an hour into different combinations of search terms without much success. A couple questions that might help us hunt in the right places: When you read the book last year, do you feel like it was a newer or older book then - any idea when it might have been published? Is the story contemporary, or was it set in some other, recognizable time period? You'd mentioned a beach, a family home - was the story set in America, or overseas? If America, any feeling on south-west-northeast?

One author who's always on the top of the pile when complex, Gothic, family- and incest-centric stories are in play is V.C. Andrews and her ghostwriters. You might browse through her website and see if any of the titles/series look familiar. 

You might also take a look at The Season of Lilian Dawes, which seems to cover some of the complex family and relationship dynamics. Kristan Higgins' Next Best Thing has a widow becoming involved with her deceased husband's brother, though the plot doesn't feel as dark. 

Sometimes when all else fails skimming through romance novel blogs can help you find little pieces to move forward with. Take a look at this article from Dear Author on levirate marriage in romantic fiction and its comment thread. 

Best of luck with your search! Any additional information you can provide, as from the questions above, will increase our odds of finding some meaningful possibilities for you.

  1. Hey thanks for taking the time to answer my question,, no it wasn't a family beach it was a beach close to her home ,, the girl was in high school and the boy maybe in his early twenties ,, the boy met her at the beach because his brother send him to set a date with the girl cause he can't stand walking on the sand ,, but when the boy saw her he likes her and doesn't tell her about his brother and they fell in love and get engaged and he get her pregnant and dies i think all that happens in a year max a year and half ,, then his brother came and let her live with him because she doesn't have a place to live and her mother wouldn't help her because she got pregnant ,, i think the heros name is Naithen but i'm not sure and they live in a house out side of the city which the heros grandfather gave it to him after daying and the house has a barn where the grandfather used to rape the hero and he kept videos for all the times,, theirs a houskeeper which helped the girl deliver the baby because their was a storm,, in the end the heros father burn the house and tried to kill the girl while in it but the hero helped her,, i think the novel was published between 2008 and 2013 and the hero works in his father as a jewellery desiner ,, hopefully it will help you
