Love Onboard: Cupid’s Caribbean Cruise brings you waves of new romantic short stories from five Contemporary Romance authors aboard a Valentine’s themed singles cruise through the Caribbean!

Too Fast for Love by Lilly Christine – Luke Devlin is a race car driver with a tendency to see red…and not just the red flags during a race. Lacey Lipinski is a Hooters waitress turned cruise ship love expert who has the tools to help Luke recalibrate. Can a fling on the ship turn into a few laps around the track?

Just One Look by Deb Julienne – On a secret mission for her father, Diana “Tolliver” unexpectedly finds herself alone on a singles cruise. Shortly after boarding, she befriends a follow solo passenger, and they decide to play a little game of “Date for the Cruise.” Each must pick out the other’s date–hopefully for the duration of the cruise. Between her new friend, research for her father, and her new “boyfriend,” she certainly isn’t alone anymore.

Pirated Pixie by Shea McMaster – Irene Lundquist boarded the ship to unwind, support her jilted best friend, and hang out with him and his groomsmen. Much to her surprise, Dutch Marshal’s good looks and charm do nothing to help her relax, and everything to steal her heart. For Dutch, things get complicated when the best man in charge of the group plans is a gorgeous pixie-sized redhead woman who lights his fire. Can either of them make it through the singles cruise and remain single, or will they get the happily ever after neither of them was looking for?

Healing Hearts by Michele Shriver – After a bitter divorce and custody battle, Taryn Bradfield’s best friend books her on a singles cruise where she meets Makai Grant, an airline pilot burnt out on love. Sailing the Caribbean, Taryn and Makai find healing and passion in each other’s arms, but too soon, the ship returns to port. Was it a vacation fling, or the start of something more?

Cinderella at Sea by Ellen Wilder – Girl next door Manda Reilly was ditched by her cousin and boarded the cruise amidst a flurry of panic attacks. When Manda discovers country singer (and childhood crush) Hunter Cross is performing on the singles cruise, she finds herself reliving old memories and indulging in the exotic with her new hero. Can the man she’s known forever really be her one true love?

“The dialogue is crisp and scenes extremely well written. This is a great historical fiction not to be missed, especially for anyone who loves the sea and ships.” -Luv2read

1692. The Atlantis, captained by veteran seaman Benjamin Archer, flies the colours of an English merchantman on the high seas between the English Channel and the Caribbean.

But she also runs up the ‘jolie rouge’ – the Jolly Roger – whenever the prospect of plundering a Spanish treasure ship presents itself.

Nipping at Spain’s empire is common practice for state-sponsored privateers like the Atlantis at a time when lesser European powers dare not directly make war on Spain.

But when those governments abandon the practice of issuing letters of marque to privateers against the Spanish galleons, many of the crews turn pirate.

Such is the fate of Archer’s men.

The crew is forced to sign the ship’s articles consenting to their new piratical ways, thereby placing their heads in a noose.

Unless, that is, they can stage a mutiny and turn Archer over to the authorities in the Caribbean city of Port Royal, a popular homeport for privateers – and notorious for its gaudy displays of wealth and loose morals, the ‘wickedest city on earth’.

But superstition is rife among seamen and the presence on board the Atlantis of two women – one a high-born French stowaway Catherine and the other a Jamaican slave-born ‘cabin boy’ Serafine – will only be a bad omen if they are discovered.

Worse, the runaway is thought by her family to possess the powers of a witch while the ‘boy’ worships voodoo gods who rule life from beneath the waves.

Will the mutiny succeed?

What is the secret bond between Archer and Serafine?

And can Catherine escape the captain’s determination to make her his after she has fallen for another young officer?

Is some unstoppable divine force slowly gathering to punish the profane?

Johanna Craven’s impressive latest novel combines the island paradise world of Mutiny on the Bounty with the visual and visceral immediacy of Master and Commander, whilst also delving into the legacies of colonialism explored in Joseph Conrad’s sinister Heart of Darkness.

Beyond the power and control of man lies what …?

Landry Albright just wants to be one of the interesting girls at school who always have exciting things going on in their lives. She wants to stand out, but also wants to fit in, so she gives in when her two best friends, Ericka and Tori, push her into trying out for a teen reality show modeling competition with them. Landry goes in nervous, but impresses the judges enough to make it to the next round.

However, Ericka and Tori get cut and basically “unfriend” her on Monday at school. Landry tries to make new friends, but gets caught up between wanting to be herself and conforming to who her new friends want her to be. Along the way she learns that modeling is nowhere as glamorous as it seems, how to deal with frenemies, a new crush, and that true friends see you for who you really are and like you because of it.

They arrive to find the frontier colony strangely deserted. When the shit hits the fan and the Argonauts face a possible alien infestation, it’s time to pull out the big guns. Because if there’s one thing Rade and his Argonauts really love, it’s a good bug hunt.

Passion, medicine, and politics collide in this page-turning thriller. The arduous process of getting a new medical procedure approved by a bureaucracy plays havoc in the lives of a young neurosurgeon with a revolutionary cure for nerve injury and a beautiful ballerina who needs the treatment as her only hope. As the doctor battles a system stacked against him, his career and the life of his beautiful patient hang in the balance.

Brilliant Manhattan neurosurgeon David Lang has developed a breakthrough treatment to repair damaged nerves, which promises a long-awaited cure for paralyzing brain and spinal cord injuries. He believes his treatment is safe, but he must first get permission to use it from New York State’s health system, CareFree. Beset with budget overruns and other priorities, the powerful agency puts David’s procedure on the back burner. To the surgeon’s despair, it will take years for CareFree to study the new technique and for him to complete the red tape needed for acceptance. He’s warned that if he performs the treatment without the proper authorization, he can lose his license and go to jail.

His frustrations mount. Then one case pushes him over the edge.

Lovely, strong-willed dancer Nicole Hudson rose to Broadway stardom from a wretched childhood only to have her life shattered by a tragic accident. David’s new treatment is her only hope. She knows the risks of the experimental procedure, but she desperately wants to try it. To be effective, it must be done soon. They cannot wait years to go through the approval process of CareFree.

A rebel doctor, a beautiful dancer, a growing passion, and a dangerous run-in with the law converge in one explosive case.
