LOVE ONBOARD! CUPID’S CARIBBEAN CRUISE has set sail! Join the cruise guests and watch Cupid hit his targets!
Love Onboard: Cupid's Caribbean Cruise. . . . Waves of New Contemporary Romance stories are coming from some of your favorite romance authors, all set aboard a Valentine’s singles cruise.
Too Fast for Love by Lilly Christine - Race Car Driver Luke Devlin’s anger issues bring him to a screeching stop, but Love Expert Lacey Lipinski has the keys to help him recalibrate. Can a cruise ship fling survive life in the fast lane?
When not hunched over her laptop dreaming up strong female leads in sassy dialogue with dashing male counterparts, Lilly Christine can be found hiking and down-dogging with her two dogs and one cat. In addition to reading, she enjoys several outdoor activities including riding horses, gardening, and biking.
Just One Look by Deb Julienne - On a secret mission for her father, Diana Clay aka ‘Diana Tolliver’ finds herself alone on a singles cruise. She befriends a passenger and they play a game...date for a cruise. Each must pick out the others date for the duration of the cruise. Between her research on the ship and her new “boyfriend” she has her hands full.
USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author Deb Julienne has penned multiple romantic comedy and western novels and anthologies. While some say truth is stranger than fiction, her experiences run more along the lines of a slapstick comedy. She makes her own Limoncello...enough said. After the day job, she loves to play in the kitchen concocting award-winning jams, jellies, preserves, and sauces (with alcohol of course). Born and raised in San Jose, California, she now resides in her own little bit of heaven in the Sierra Tahoe National Forest Basin, with her husband of 35 years, their three sons and one daughter, and five very precious grandchildren with number six on the way.
Pirated Pixie by Shea McMaster - Irene Lundquist has no plans for romance while on the cruise with her jilted best friend and his groomsmen. She's surprised when Dutch Marshal’s good looks and charm do nothing to help her relax, and everything to steal her heart. For Dutch, things get complicated when the best man in charge of the group plans is a gorgeous pixie-sized redhead woman who lights his fire. Can either of them make it through the singles cruise and remain single, or will they get the happily ever after neither of them was looking for?
Shea McMaster lives for traditional romance. Born in New Orleans, raised in California, Shea got moved to Alaska in 1977, where she attended high school before running back to California to get her English degree from Mills College. Alas, once back home she met and fell in love with her own forever true hero, a born and raised Alaska man. Since then she’s had a love-hate relationship with America’s largest state. With her one and only son grown and on his own, Shea is fortunate to spend her days playing with the furry child, and engaged in daydreaming, turning those dreams into romantic novels and novellas featuring damsels in distress rescued by their own brains and hunky heroes. She also writes under the steamy romances under the name Morgan O’Reilly.
Healing Hearts by Michele Shriver - After a bitter divorce and custody battle, Taryn Bradfield’s best friend books her on a singles cruise, where she meets Makai Grant, an airline pilot burnt out on love. Sailing the Caribbean, Taryn and Makai find healing and passion in each other’s arms, but too soon, the ship returns to port. Was it a vacation fling, or the start of something more?
Michele Shriver is a National and International best-selling author of women’s fiction and contemporary romance. Her books feature flawed-but-likeable characters in real-life settings. She’s not afraid to break the rules, but never stops believing in happily ever after. Michele counts among her favorite things a good glass of wine, a hockey game, and a sweet and sexy book boyfriend, not necessarily in that order.
Cinderella at Sea by Ellen Wilder - When girl next door Manda Reilly discovers hero country singer Hunter Cross is onboard her singles cruise, Manda finds herself indulging in the exotic. Hunter’s heroism goes more than skin-deep. Can the man she’s known forever really be her one true love?
Ellen Wilder was born and raised in Indiana. She is happily married to her husband of five years and enjoys raising their two girls and one boy in the house where she grew up. They have a border collie/corgi mix named Loki.
Her parents started reading to Ellen and her siblings at a very young age. They quickly tired of books for younger children and turned to chapter books like Tarzan, The Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings forging Ellen's love for reading.
Ellen started writing in Junior High with an assignment from her computer writing teacher. Her first attempt at a modern day Old Yeller crossover with NYPD Blue was "awful", but that didn't stop the inspiration from flowing. Ellen now writes contemporary romance novels with a realistic twist to them. If you’re looking for fairy tales, you won’t find them here as her characters deal with real life issues. She loves helping people with their writing, paying forward the help that she has received allowing her to be where she is today.
As most people know, I am a sucker for YA Paranormal and that is my go to and love genre, but from time-to-time, you will catch me step out of my comfort zone and give other genres a try.....And boy was I glad I gave this one a try....Check out below what I thought of each individual story and my overall thoughts on this Anthology.
Too Fast for Love Lily Christine
WOW....This story was fabulous and fast paced just like the character, Luke. I was addicted from beginning to end. This author has a new fan.
Just One Look Jeb Julienne
WOW...What a fun, sassy, and sexy story this was. This was a dream right out of the pages of a fantasy world that only this author could bring forth. I loved the mystery and the magic that flowed within its pages and embedded itself into my brain. This story has a intriguing and memorable fairy tale twist that I absolutely loved.
Pirated Pixie Shae McMaster
A sexy, fun, quirky, and light-heartened read. I enjoyed the story at the turn of every delectable page.
Healing Hearts Michele Shriver
What a beautiful and romantic story. I really enjoyed it.
Cinderella at Sea Ellen Wilder
This is by far my favorite story of them all. Of course, I am a sucker for a classical fairy tale with a twist and this one won my heart and soul and left a part of me within its pages. This was a memorable and fun tale that has left me craving more about these amazing characters.
Overall, this Anthology was a fantastic and fun read with different authors bringing forth their own fairy tale twists. I loved how each story revolved around the same cruise ship, at different times, with different points of view of how they saw the events and how they became a part of this cruise, and how some of the characters had small rolls to play in each story. This is a mystical and magical cruise line that I will not forget any time soon. I highly recommend this to all to enjoy.
