MAN OF THE ISLAND
The turquoise waters and rugged hills of Santa Catalina Island were a paradise for most visitors. But not for Chad Carver. Painful memories came rushing back as he steered his boat into Avalon's harbor. He'd left this island ten years ago, after too many years of back-breaking work and abuse from his father. Since then he'd explored exotic locales, from the coral reefs of Hawaii to the white sands of the Caribbean. And he was determined to keep moving on as soon as he settled the affairs of the father who had filled his childhood with dread.
From the first time she visited Catalina, Tucker Ryan knew she was in love. Since that day, she'd mortgaged her life to set up "Greased Lightning," the best bicycle shop in Avalon. With a high overhead and a pack of tourists on the island, Tucker was working her way through a holiday week-end when a tall, tanned stranger with sun-bleached hair caught her eye.
She had no time for romantic entanglements. And yet, when he offered to show her some of the oldest mysteries of the island, Tucker couldn't resist. She was mesmerized by the dark, elusive glimmer in Chad's blue eyes. This was a man with a hidden past...and well-guarded secrets. Wrapped in his arms, lost in his kisses Tucker discovered treasures she'd never imagined. But she knew there was more to this man than his rough voice and smoky eyes revealed. Who was he...and why had he come to Catalina Island?
