"It’s so refreshing to read about a strong, yet realistic and complex female character."  ~ Amazon Reviewer


The Tide Series - Book 2

Be careful what you run from… you never know what might catch you instead.

Shae Love knows one thing…

...she can only be happy when she’s at sea, flying below the radar.

But Drew Vega, the boy she fell for in Samoa, turns out to be a stranger. Gone are their dreams of sailing the world together, with nothing but the ocean to answer to. Drew’s days are now filled with business meetings instead of sketching landscapes, red carpet premieres instead of beaches, tailored Armani suits instead of swimming trunks. And the media trail him wherever he goes.

That’s not the only thing testing their love…

Brett Abspoel, Drew’s lifelong friend, is quietly plotting in the background. Shae is the cure that will wipe away his taboo past, and he’s determined to have her… whatever the cost.

When Shae runs from her new life with Drew, she has no idea what’s about to catch her.
