Some days I really enjoy a fun, lighthearted romance — today the little gem was the novella “Sea of Temptation: Summer Loving” by Suzie Jay. I love being able to escape the humdrum of daily life and sail out for a sensational romantic encounter on the high seas.
“Sea of Temptation” has readers boarding the Stella Maris, a cruise ship that’s the perfect setting for a romance, where we meet Reid Lancaster. At first glance, Reid appears to be something of a ladies’ man, but there’s actually something deeper lurking beneath the tan, muscles, and gorgeous green eyes. However, Scarlett Barrett, the ship’s slightly uptight doctor is less than thrilled to encounter Reid. Reid and Scarlett have history and things really didn’t end well. Will they be able to work out the issues from their past? Can Scarlett forgive Reid and can he forgive himself?
Author Suzie Jay has written a charming story with characters that are both likeable and real. In addition to Reid and Scarlett, we get to spend time with Reid’s little sister Pip, who’s feisty and fun as well as Scarlett’s friend Jane — I really liked both supporting characters and they’re integral to helping Reid and Scarlett find their way.
I recommend “Sea of Temptation: Summer Loving” by Suzie Jay to anyone who enjoys a sweet, romantic read. It’s a novella, just seven chapters making it ideal for a lazy summer day read poolside or while at the beach. And I guarantee the opening line will make you smile!
