Back Cover Information
Olivia Bailey is up for The Challenge. Why the heck wouldn’t she be? With mariner qualifications piled high, engineering experience to rival someone twice her age, she’s ready to take on the mighty Pacific Ocean and win.
But what about her fellow crew? Five guys, four nationalities. A billionaire’s heir who likes to take charge in every aspect of life, an outback expert with a heart-stopping smile, a Spanish chef with mouthwatering moves and sexy twins who reveal themselves slowly, until it matters, then they act fast.
An adventure was what Olivia wanted, it’s certainly what she gets. Because things at sea happen in a heartbeat, friendships grow, tempers heat and desire flares. But what about when it all upends? When the unexpected happens? Will they pull together, or will fear drag the crew of Temptress apart?
Olivia stole glances at Lucas. He’d taken his t-shirt off and his skin was gleaming as it stretched over his muscles. His tattoo, like Mason’s, was intriguing and her gaze kept lingering on it. There were so many details. She really wanted to sit and trace it, explore every inch of it.
As they worked she wondered what was going through his mind. What he was thinking. He seemed calm and resigned to the situation.
And that calmness, as they collected sticks, not needing to speak but staying close, seemed to rub off on Olivia. Not that she was having a major panic, she was good at staying level-headed. But the truth was they were stranded on a deserted island with only a slim hope of contacting any kind of rescue team.
Her arms became full of bone-dry driftwood. She was wary of bugs in the cracks and kept flicking them and bits of sand off her forearm.
“Here.” Lucas stepped in front of her, his hand outstretched. On it sat a pale pink shell, shaped like the top of a swirling ice-cream. “For you.”
“Aw, thanks.” She shifted the wood then took it and held it to her ear. “I can hear the sea.”
He laughed. “Well it is right there.” He pointed at the waves.
“No, in here.” She shook a few grains of sand from the inner cavity of the shell. Its pearlescent surface caught the light. “It’s beautiful.”
“It’s beautiful just like you. You are the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.”
He held her gaze for a split second, then turned and stooped to pick up a large piece of wood. Once again the muscles beneath his skin dancing and flexing as he moved and the sun glinted off his shoulders.
Olivia smiled and shook her head. Lucas might not say much, but when he did, to her at least, it was pretty damn romantic.
