Return to Paradise - Jewel of Solana Release 3/20/17

It's time to return to paradise!
The tropical island of Solana is my exotic dream, that unfortunately with my twisted writer mind I run its inhabitants through hellish conditions. But if I didn't, where would the suspense part come in for the romantic suspense series?

I introduced the Solanian Royal Family in Prince of Solana, released just this past February. The very first story in the Royals of Solana trilogy.
The great news is people only had to wait 30 days for the next novel. Jewel of Solana is the princesses' story, and just as action packed and steamy as the first.

Princess Alanna Peralta escapes a brutal attack on her island home after a vicious cartel assassinates her family. To save the royal bloodline and family legacy—the priceless necklace Luna de Azul—she conceals her identity. Boarding a yacht, she lands in the arms of a brazenly handsome engineer, who might be her guardian angel—or a greedy demon in disguise.

Gabriel Flynn can’t look anyone in the eye. A childhood quirk made it unbearable to be around anyone. Until an obsidian-haired beauty begs for help. She is clearly not as she seems, and Flynn doubts her story…and intentions.

With danger at every turn, Alanna and Flynn discover the limitless reach of the cartel’s power. Flynn must decide how much he trusts her. As danger closes in, Alanna is torn between sacrifices—her life, family legacy, and country…or her heart.
