~~Blog Stop~~ Jewel of Solana by Susan Sheehey

Princess Alanna Peralta escapes a brutal attack on her island home after a vicious cartel assassinates her family. To save the royal bloodline and family legacy—the priceless necklace Luna de Azul—she conceals her identity and boards a mega-yacht… Into the arms of a brazenly handsome engineer, who might be her guardian angel—or the devil in disguise.

Gabriel Flynn can’t look anyone in the eye. Until an obsidian-haired beauty begs for help. Committed to a solitary life at sea, he’s shocked to be captivated by the woman’s exotic, espresso eyes, and further amazed when she seems intrigued by his eccentricities.

With danger at every turn, Alanna and Flynn discover the limitless reach of the cartel’s power. Flynn must decide how much he trusts her not to betray him. As danger closes in, Alanna is torn between sacrifices—her life, family legacy, and country…or her heart.

Thank you,” she breathed.
For coming back for me. You have no idea how much
that means to me. There’s no point in hiding who I am
any more. Not from you. Those men are after me
because I’m—”
Flynn cupped her face and silenced her with a kiss.
Everything around him stopped. No music, no bass
beat, no dizzying panic. Just the soft cushion of her lips
on his, and that delectable coconut taste. When he
pulled back, her cheeks were flushed. “I already know,
Alanna. I would’ve come back for you anyway.”
Her smile lit up her face. She kissed him again, this
time holding nothing back. With a flick of his tongue,
she opened for him and pressed against him. Pain
seared through his bruise, but he didn’t care. Holding
her was his medicine. His fingers slipped behind her
neck, entwining in her hair. Everything turned hot. Her
hands smoothed up his back under his shirt, his skin
stinging where her fingernails dug into his shoulder
blades. A sting he relished.
The double doors burst open. Alanna gasped.
A young Filipina with embellished black eyeliner
and purple lipstick pushed past them, smirking in a
sweat-covered, sequined shirt. “Take it to a stall,
Facesuckers.” She disappeared into the restrooms.
You’re much too precious for a place like this,”
Flynn said, catching his breath.
Alanna wrapped her arms around his middle. Her
cheek pressed into his chest. But she didn’t say
We need to get you some place safe tonight,”
Flynn said.

That would be wherever you are.”
