A Sailor’s
Perfect Christmas

 

Rescue Series Prequel

Alex Ivanovich, on the cusp of taking over his family’s marine salvage business, doesn’t have time for romance. His parents are fleeing the chilly shores of the Puget Sound for Florida and leaving him in charge. He’s barely even had time to plan their going away slash Christmas party, and he fears he’s going to let everyone down at all of it. So when a beautiful redheaded woman and her friend barge onto his new sailboat one night, begging to use the head, his first instinct is to tell them no. No more demands, no more entanglements, no more trouble.

His yes, however, ends up leading to a much nicer evening than expected and the phone number of Taylor Beckwith, the redhead. The phone number leads to coffee, the coffee leads to a dinner date, and soon Alex finds himself juggling his growing attraction to Taylor, the unexpected challenges of the holiday party, and the year-end needs of the salvage business. Will a ship-shape, put-together, feisty professional woman like Taylor even be interested in more from a sailor boy with way too many irons in the fire? He might need a Christmas miracle, and he might just need the courage to believe in himself.

When The
Night Comes

 

COMING THIS FALL!!!

To regain her footing after a bad breakup, Taylor Beckwith books a vacation in St. Eustatius, where she has always longed to dive the crystalline waters and hike into one of the dormant volcanos. An unexpected tumble on her dream trek leaves her too injured to climb out of the crater, so she shelters in a cave until her local guide can bring help. But faint cries in the night rouse both her suspicions—and her spidey senses. She knows she can’t leave the crater until she tracks down the source of that pain.

Salvage and rescue expert Alex Ivanovich—Mr. Bad Breakup himself—thinks he’s ruined his chances with Taylor forever. When Taylor’s mother calls him, begging him to help locate Taylor who disappeared in a rainforest in St. Eustatius, he latches onto the team searching for a kidnapped American medical student in the same area where Taylor has gone missing. As the owner of a rescue and salvage unit, locating stranded travelers is part of his job, but never before has he been so desperate to succeed.

In a race against a sadistic kidnapper, a powerful hurricane, and the tangled jungle itself, both Taylor and Alex must put aside their differences in order to survive.
