They had thought it all in the past. Yet now the storm has returned.

Are you ready?

Ha! Certainly, you didn’t think you’d be getting it so easily, did you?

Bound and Determined Blurb

Port Royal, Jamaica


A wicked twist of fate—or perhaps the hand of God—has landed Captain Rina Bennet in the most precarious situation yet. When her husband and the father of her twin boys leaves at the behest of a family friend, she is left to take charge of the ship she has not sailed on in two years, alongside her two toddlers. She finds herself between a rock and a hard place when her first voyage drastically turns into a rescue mission, leaving her to the ghosts of her old life.

Daisy Sharow has risked it all by escaping from her owner’s tavern in search of her sister. Following God’s direction, she seeks out the only person she trusts to help her: Keaton Clarke. When Daisy stows away aboard the Rina, quartermaster Keaton is faced with a ghost from his past and a decision neither he nor Rina are prepared to make.

Rina has to make a judgment call when the ghosts come knocking, a call that could mean either life or death—for both an innocent girl and herself. Can Daisy, Keaton, and Rina band together to save Daisy’s sister…or is the risk too great?

Now that I’ve teased you enough, here is the epic, gorgeous cover; everyone, please clap for Bound and Determined!

ISN’T IT BEAUTIFUL?!!!!!! The gorgeous sunset colors are just too perfect for this swashbuckling, romantic adventure that’s both bittersweetly heartbreaking and healing. You can just FEEL the depth and intensity from the cover alone that perfectly reflects the story itself. 😭 (I was a beta reader and I’ll save my gushing over it for the actual future review, but just know that BAD is good. Really good. And no, I’m not using a crying emoji because it was a tragedy. It’s not, praise the Lord.) Well, I’ll stop waxing poetic about it.
