The second story in The Brantons! (a short series)
A jilted bride…a sexy sea captain…love at first touch
Stressed out Teri Branton is determined to get the honeymoon cruise she paid for — even without the groom.
Laidback Captain Jared MacKay instantly dislikes Teri’s 6 inch heels and New York attitude.
Neither is prepared for their electrifying first touch.
In this erotically-charged novella, they have one short week under the sultry Caribbean sun. Can Jared’s slow hand lead them beyond torrid sex into a lifetime of love?
Review by Denise
This is a quick “full of scorching heat” read if you are looking for a way to get the blood flowing on a slow morning then this is for you. This is the first time I’ve read this author which is always a treat for me. Right away you are on deck getting introduced to the captain who has his eye on the woman who is boarding. Reaction is instant but you’re thinking no action since this was to be for two who are on their honeymoon. He doesn’t allow her shoes though and tells her to take them off and she does something funny in my opinion. When he goes to help her, they have electricity between them that could probably light up a room. In his family, that means something, so he is wary. Come to find out there will be no honeymoon but this author still takes you on a trip with sights you will read that will have you curling your toes.
The captain Jared is her pirate candy (he can whisk me away to check out his decks) while Teri is not at all hard on the eyes giving him instant reactions continuously. Cursing with these two for the time that was to be for the trip they both find out that they make a perfect fit. No longer denying what that electricity that is shared between the two of them will be a good persuader also for Jared to delve deep with Teri. connecting with a man like she has never done before is the plus on her thinking feeding the feeling side freely. When the trip comes to its conclusion they have found they are more than sated and satisfied with each other and with a great opportunity he wants to do that comes along for his business more than a partner is what you can find out he gets if you take the time to read this juicy morsel for yourself. A bit of warning though if it happens to warm at the time of the reading of this tasty you might want to wait till the cool of the evening to indulge meeting this captain and his guest. 4 books for erotica 3 books for story line (so 3.5 average)
