Twenty-five years into a self-imposed apocalypse known as the New Beginning, a clanless woman must abduct a villager while navigating a mysterious, zombie-like plague in order to steal next season’s harvest before everyone starves to death. Through deception, conspiracy, and the horrors of an expanding pandemic, love thrives where a world chose to die.
MBA from Yale? Check. Corporate position? Check. Man in her life? Not likely. Witnessing the tumult of her father’s two failed marriages has Nikki Cameron choosing her career over relationships. The occasional no-strings hook-up was all she needed from a man, thank you very much. Until she meets Julian Sayles, that is. And to top things off, as first mate on another luxury yacht, he’s her competition on the charter circuit.
The quintessential ladies’ man, Julian has a past that he’s gone to great lengths to hide. Keeping that secret safe means not letting anyone get close, but a certain beautiful and headstrong businesswoman jeopardizes everything. All he has worked hard to conceal is at risk.
Deceit, manipulation, and hidden agendas land them in the lush tropics of Belize where the only thing hotter than the temperature is the sex. In this battle of wills and trust…neither will ever be the same.
