Publisher Description

A sexy standalone in the fan-favorite Lost Harbor, Alaska series

After a heartbreaking loss, Lulu Spencer-Bennington is on a mission to live her life to the fullest. Dancing her way around the world on a cruise ship is a great start. Hiding in a small Alaska town, staying off a criminal’s radar, probably wasn’t what her beloved mum had in mind. Fortunately, she’s stumbled across a sexy fisherman willing to help. So maybe he doesn’t quite know what he’s in for…but Lulu’s hoping to be out of town before he finds out.

Tristan Del Rey has always been a natural leader—but a recent fishing accident has sent his confidence reeling. He’s no hero, no matter what his fellow Lost Harbor fishermen think. Even so, he can’t turn away the funny, feisty dancer he finds on his boat. He’s determined to protect her no matter what it costs him. As for anything more personal, the best he can offer is some temporary fun. That doesn’t stop the luscious, long-legged Lulu from high-kicking him right in the heart.

Between a dangerous enemy, family drama and the fast-approaching winter, Tristan and Lulu may find their hearts’ desires where they least expect it…starting with a first kiss before frost.

Finding Love in Lost/“Lust” Harbor

I really enjoyed this romance, with a great setting in Alaska, two well-matched, competent, intelligent main characters, and a touch of suspense running through it to keep everything interesting. Lulu is a dancer on a cruise ship temporarily docked in Lost Harbor who jumps ship and takes refuge on Tristan's fishing boat. Initially he doesn't quite know what to make of her. She's gorgeous, quirky, and in the habit of cracking jokes in order to deflect his attention from getting the full story of why she left her ship in the first place. She does tell him that she's running from a guy on the ship who she recognized as an internationally wanted criminal. He isn't quite sure what to believe, but when his truck is blown up the following day as a warning, he realizes that Lulu is in a bit more trouble than she let on, and becomes determined to help her.

Tristan is a "nice" guy, a natural born leader, although he'd reject that description, and there's no way he's going to walk away from Lulu, especially once he learns the extent of the trouble she's in. Once he decides to help her, he's all in and together, they make a great team. The author deftly balanced their growing attraction and romance with just enough suspense to keep the story interesting and moving along at a good pace. I've only read one of the previous books in this series, but although there were appearances by other characters from previous books, I never felt lost, so a reader could definitely jump in here, even though this is the 11th in a series set in Lost Harbor. I received a free copy of this book from the author and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

I’ve been waiting for Tristan’s story and it’s everything I thought it would be and more. Tristan’s brooding temperament and gorgeous Nordic features are irresistible and Lulu’s joy for life is contagious and utterly charming. I loved every moment of adventure aboard the Desperado as Tristan and Lulu are on the run and the slow burn of attraction between them heats up with every passing day. Drama, suspense and the unique setting of Lost Harbor, Alaska make for an entertaining storyline and I enjoyed every minute. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
