When the mysterious Joe Smith approaches him with an incredible job offer, Brody thinks it’s too good to be true. His life-saving need and his desire to be near the ocean while earning a living are rolled into one perfect job.
Rayna Lopez lives a quiet life as she tries to climb her way up the CIA ladder, always in fear the government will learn of her family lineage. When her father asks for help getting her famous and belligerent half-sister out of trouble, Rayna reluctantly agrees to travel with her and they board a yacht where they will be protected.
Brody and Rayna realize they’ve met before, and despite a significant lack of trust between them, they face an attraction neither can deny. As they fight to keep Rayna’s sister alive, lies are revealed and secrets are told. They must both learn to trust each other, and—if they live through their voyage—figure out what to do about their whirlwind romance.
She glanced over at Brody again, and he motioned her to follow him. She caught up with him, and they swam together, the sun warming her back. When they were out of range from Margarita and Jason, Brody laced his fingers with hers.
Rayna looked up and saw they were headed for the caves. Katie had said the fish inhabiting them were different, and Rayna looked forward to the exploration.
As they entered the cave, the light waned, but Rayna caught movement out of the corner of her eye. She turned to see a thin, dark, four-foot long fish emerge from the darkness. She gasped and grabbed Brody’s arm as the fish swam out of the cave.
Rayna lifted her head, and Brody did the same.
“That was a barracuda,” he said after removing his mouthpiece.
“That thing was huge!” Rayna exclaimed, her heart still pounding with fear.
Brody chuckled and pulled her close to him, removing his mask, and then hers. “Is Ms. Hot CIA afraid of a little fish?”
Rayna laced her arms around his neck, thankful the ocean gave them such buoyancy. “Yes,” she murmured, as he peppered her neck with slow kisses.
“Don’t worry about him,” Brody whispered, his voice barely audible over the waves lapping at the rocks in the cave. “Barracudas don’t like humans. He has no desire to nibble on your toes. Now on the other hand, I’m a different story. I want to lick, suck, and nibble every inch of you. If there’s anything you should worry about, it’s me.”
Rayna laughed despite the bolts of heat coursing through her. Her heart still pounded, but she knew it was from Brody’s touch, not fear. His lips met hers in slow exploration.
“So I should actually be worried about my Captain who has promised to protect me?” she teased.
“Oh, yes, Rayna,” he whispered in her ear. “You should be very worried about what I plan to do with you.
Thank you for checking out By Sea! It has been described as "an amazing and suspense filled storyline about betrayal, government secrets and finding love."
The book takes place in the Virgin Islands on a 115 foot yacht. Nice, right?
I love the ocean and the beach, but don't get there very often as I live in Arizona. Here are my Top Ten things to do when I'm lucky enough to visit the ocean:
1. Paddle Boarding
3. Laying out in the sun
5. Building sand castles with my son
6. Playing in the waves
7. Having fruity drinks with pretty umbrellas in them
8. Relaxing and floating around on calm waters
9. Taking a nap. I love the way the ocean lulls me to sleep.
10. Playing volleyball!
