A desperate search…

Former cop Jake Alexander is staking out a yacht for an insurance company when a gorgeous, dressed-to-kill stranger stumbles into his dangerous undercover op. As much as he’d like to kick her off his boat, he can’t risk her going off on some hare-brained scheme—but he can’t keep her around to muck up his job.

Gracie James has never seen more danger than her kindergarten grade classroom, but when she goes searching for her missing sister, she’s thrown into a world of sex, crime…and passion. Following a hot lead, she sneaks onto a stranger’s boat—and gets caught. Their one-sided conversation convinces her of two things. One: the guy is seriously sexy. Two: he knows something about her sister.

Unfortunately, Jake’s attempt to keep Gracie safe quickly morphs into a reluctant alliance. And a whole lot more… Unless they find a way to trust each other, they’re finished.



This romantic suspense story by Annie Seaton is set on the beautiful north Queensland coast. She captures the Whitsunday area in all its glory; heavy, tropical days and nights, white sandy beaches and water in many forms. Both Gracie and Jake have difficulty trusting others and the interplay between them sizzles as both are pushed beyond their limits as they test each other's mettle. This is a smoldering hot read by this talented author. I can't wait for her next book.-Susan Rees
