She was everything he’d ever wanted . . .
He was everything she’d dreamed of.
It is 1941 and Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu is as close to paradise as you were likely to get. Golden sunshine, sweet ocean breezes, secluded beaches made for romance.
Pearl is a dream come true for Rick Byrne. A poor kid from the south side of Chicago, Rick joined the navy to see the world — and maybe one day own a piece of it. When the chance to drive for Admiral Forrester falls into his lap, he grabs for the brass ring even if it means squiring the admiral’s spoiled and beautiful daughter all around Honolulu.
Eden Forrester dislikes the brash young sailor on sight. For five weeks now she has been forced to rely on her father’s underlings to drive her around town while she waits for her broken leg to mend. A first-class flirt, she is accustomed to getting her own way with men of all ages, but her new driver seems immune to her charms . . . until one magical moment on a moonswept beach when the future is theirs for the taking.
But the world around them is growing more dangerous every day and on a beautiful Sunday morning in December, not even Paradise can save them from their destiny . . .
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
This was such an enjoyable book. The characters were well rounded, both likable and flawed, and most importantly they grew as characters as the story progressed. The setting was beautifully done as was the time period.
This story that takes place in idyllic Hawaii just prior to the bombing of Pearl on December 7,1941. It spans the immediate aftermath with a well written tale. It supplies a personal touch to the horrors of that day while maintaining a good romance story of the haves and have-nots.
This was a very good and interesting story about the experience of love and war. Looking forward to the next book in this series. I would read this book again as there is never too many love stories that are worth a read the second time around.
Loved, loved, loved this book! I loved Eden and Rick; they are characters I would like to make friends with. I loved watching them grow over the course of the story. I loved the setting and the time period. I loved the sweetness of the story, that the author stayed true to the era’s morals and beliefs, as well as slang and speech

About The Author
In the month of February 1982 I wrote and sold my first novel. And no, I wouldn’t believe it either if it hadn’t happened to me. I sent in my manuscript on Thursday February 21, 1982 and four days later the telephone rang and I heard the amazing words, “We want to buy your book.” How I wish you could have seen me. I was standing by the kitchen door of our North Babylon house, the picture of cool sophistication, as I listened to Vivian Stephens explain the terms of the deal to me. You would have thought I’d sold a first book every single day of my life. Yes, I said. Sounds wonderful. Thank you so much for calling. I look forward to our association. That cool sophistication hung on until I hung up the phone, took a deep breath, then promptly threw up on my shoes.
I was thirty-one years old, unagented, unschooled, unfamiliar with anything to do with the business of publishing. To put it mildly, I was in shock. My husband was working in Manhattan at the time (and finishing up his degree at night) so it would be hours until I could break the news to him. This was too exciting to waste on a phone call. I wanted to see his face when I told him that my dream had finally come true — and came with a $6000 advance!
He pulled into the driveway at midnight. I was waiting in the doorway, holding a bottle of champagne and two glasses. I didn’t have to say a word. He knew right away and the look of joy and pride in his eyes warms me now, years later, long after the advance faded into memory.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Barbara Bretton and ENT appreciate it.
