Clean Romance from The Wild Rose Press
Heaven On Earth
She needed the solitude of the ocean to think, the warmth of the sun to
soothe her confusion, and the speed of pushing a motorboat to its limit
to face the toughest decision of her life. Captain Maddy Harrington
needed peace of mind to decide if she should continue her lifelong dream

the azure sky. He smiled to himself, enjoying the serene moment. Nothing

"Damn, I thought I led a pretty good life. You mean--I'm in...Hell?" A pain shot through his temple as he tried to smile.
