Published by MIRA Buy on Amazon
Jewellery designer Skylar loves living London, especially as the glittering Christmas lights sparkle all around. But when a surprise proposal goes wrong she finds herself fleeing home to remote Puffin Island. Of course, the last person she expected to see was TV historian Alec.
Burned by a terrible divorce, Alec is dazzled by Sky’s blonde beauty and so cynical that he assumes that’s a bad thing! Luckily she’s on the verge of getting engaged to someone else, so she won’t be a constant source of temptation on Puffin Island...but this Christmas, can Alec and Sky realise that they are what each other was looking for all along?
Skylar Tempest is in London on her way to a private showing of her collection of jewelry and fine arts. Tempest Designs is her small but exclusive international business and a dream come true.
On her way to the gallery, she ponders what the night has in store for her as her beau Richard, the newly elected Senator is joining her as he surprised her by showing up in London when she thought he wasn’t coming because of scheduling.
Alec Hunter, the famous maritime historian, also shows up to support Skylar at the behest of Brittany a mutual friend since he is also in London and Brittany cannot be there.
When Richard walks out on Skylar and leaves the building, Alec is understandably concerned when she doesn’t come out of the room where they were talking, and it turns out for good reason as he finds her on the floor with blood all over her. He stays with her to make sure she is alright and even takes her home to Puffin Island where his parents are getting ready to celebrate Christmas.
What happens between them is what makes the story engaging as they peel the layers off each other’s pain, his due to divorce. They both grapple with unexpected feelings neither expected which result in a deep friendship.
This is a wonderful story told in a way that was sensitive, funny at times and deeply romantic. This is my first time reading a book by Sarah Morgan, but it will not be the last.
I highly recommend anyone who likes a good story to read this book.
