Crime on the high seas with a dash of romance. The cowardly son of a famous yachtsman and a shunned female sea captain set out on a boat delivery traversing the dangerous waters of the Atlantic Ocean, not realizing they might never make it back.
Time is of the essence. During the busiest boating season of the year, Joe Carella needs a delivery crew to transport his dead father’s prize sailing yacht home to Mystic, Connecticut from Florida, traversing one of the most dangerous areas of the Atlantic Ocean. Desperate, he hires a captain with an iffy reputation. Despite his lack of skill confidence, and courage, Joe, who has always lived under the shadow of his famous father, feels obligated to go along to prove his worth.
Fishing boat captain Marty Chase’s career sank like the Titanic when she was made the scapegoat for a boating accident in Mystic. Determined to restore her tarnished reputation, she accepts Joe’s offer to captain the Carella’s boat home, despite her inexperience with sailing a large yacht in deep ocean waters.
They set sail just ahead of a hurricane brewing in the Caribbean, not realizing that the weather and seas will be the least of their worries. As they fight to survive, the fisherman’s daughter and the privileged son find strength in each other.

In addition to Sea Lust, she has published two additional adult fiction works, a children’s storybook, four how-to books, and a cookbook. When she is not glued to her computer or contriving plots, she might be out sailing with her handsome captain, at home crocheting prayer shawls to donate to folks in need, or at the gym trying to work off those danged extra pounds. She loves to hear from readers,.
