Genres: Adult, Adventure, Romance







Uptight English socialite Sophie Davies-Stone has longed to meet her father ever since she was a little girl. So, when he finally makes contact by sending her a mysterious medallion, she can’t help herself from doing something totally un-Sophie like. Rather than mailing it to Key West as instructed, Sophie hops the first flight to America.

But the family reunion never happens. Instead, Sophie is attacked and almost kidnapped by her father’s enemies. Her only hope of staying alive is Jimmy Panama–the cocky and annoyingly handsome former Navy SEAL with a debt he must pay to her father.

As she and Jimmy embark on a heart-pounding adventure through the Carribean, Sophie finds herself falling for the snarky American. Her head says Jimmy’s all wrong for her, and the more Sophie finds out about him–and her father–the more questions she has about their past and their loyalties…

One thing is clear. Sophie’s in way over her head, and her greatest adventure might just be her last.






This book literally had it all, action, romance and adventure. A adventure through tropical islands, running from criminals intent on kidnapping. This added the element of suspense and ramped up the tension.

The main protagonist, Sophie is a smart-mouthed determined woman who wants to find her father. In her search to find him she stumbles upon a criminal world that could very well kill her. Jimmy is at home in this world and like it or not he must protect Sophie. The tension is high and things get heated.

This book literally had me glued to the pages as I was experiencing high speed chases and multiple kidnapping attempts. This was a truly a thrilling read that was a pleasure to read, pulse-pounding action made for a brilliant book.
