About the Book
Hannah Rose Barrington is the island misfit. Orphaned at a young age, Hannah struggles to provide for her future, while her guardian, a weak-hearted island drunk, bleeds Hannah of her father’s inheritance. Caught between the classes of elite planters and white beggars, Hannah yearns to find a place to belong. University life has never been Bradlee Granville’s forte. His only hope to graduate is to impress his professors by documenting his travels. After claiming unforeseeable circumstances, he delays his final exams and sets out early on his Grand Tour. However, when his ship wrecks off the coast of the Leeward Islands, Bradlee is left without means to return to England, a mounting deadline, and ruined journals. When Hannah rescues passengers from a ship breaking apart in the bay, she’s unexpectedly drawn to the witty charm of one of the men. Helping him settle into island life will be a pleasure. However, as creditors, like sharks, begin to circle and her guardian’s desperation becomes life threatening, Hannah finds herself in need of rescue. Will Bradlee look past her pitiful situation to see who she truly is—the sugar baron’s daughter?

The book was quite an adventure! A couple places in the story was a little slow but it quickly picked up and I had to keep reading! I appreciated that it didn’t just end but told a little more of the story.
I enjoyed “meeting” Hannah and following her story. She didn’t have it easy and yet she persevered. Each character was well developed and I could picture them clearly. I liked some of them better then others. The story between Bradlee and Hannah is so sweet. It was fun to watch! The interaction between Bradlee and Colin is hilarious! I liked the banter. The story is set on the Island of Nevis. It sounds beautiful and I wish I could visit.
This is book 3 in a series but can be read as a standalone.
I recommend this story to my family and friends.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. I also purchased a copy for myself. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

Becca – Thank you for your kind words and great review. I’m so grateful for you spreading the word about my books. I’m glad you enjoyed Hannah’s story and the banter between Bradlee and Colin. I used a lot of material from my own boys scarcasm toward each other. As much as they tease each other, when it comes down to it, they have each others backs. Blessings! – Lorri
