*FINALIST: Reader’s Choice Award, The Romance Reviews*
Set in 1984, in a world before sexting and texting, this “lushly written and emotional” New Adult romance stars redheaded spelling champion Ruby Michaels, who meets the wrong kind of man on the eve of her departure from St. Thomas for college. “I won’t be derailed by anyone—no matter how handsome and interesting,” she vowed.
But some promises are made to be broken.
Surfer, sailor, handyman Rafe is fleeing grief and his family’s opulent lifestyle. In Ruby’s passionate innocence he finds a woman he’s willing to sail the globe to pursue. “I am a pirate,” he tells her. “When I see a treasure I want, I’ll do anything to get it.”
