Eliza was a child who has been caught in a riptide on the Caribbean Sea. Jack Ryder was a teenager from the East Coast on vacation with his family. He dove in to save her, and that single terrifying moment changed both their lives forever.

A decade later Jack Ryder is a daring secret agent with the FBI and Eliza Lawrence still lives on that pristine island. She’s an untainted princess in a kingdom of darkness and evil, on the brink of a forced marriage with a dangerous neighboring drug lord, a marriage arranged by her father.

When they meet the second time Jack and Eliza have a connection neither of them can explain. Both their lives are on the line, and once again, the stakes are deadly high. Can they join forces in a complicated and dangerous mission, pretending to have a breathtaking love…without really falling?

There are some miracles that happen not once, but twice…along a distant shore.

I give A Distant Shore five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
