Sometimes opposites don’t just attract — they collide with all the violent passion of a rogue wave.

I sailed every ocean, saw the worst that humanity had to offer, and accomplished… nothing.

The world is just as screwed up now as it was when I set out to save it. The futility of it all left me disillusioned. Numb.

Then an idealistic beauty burst into my world, shining a light into all the dark corners of my soul.

The last thing she needs is a summer romance with a burned-out wreck like me.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do…

When I look at Tate, I see a legend. He’s done it all, seen it all — lived my dream.

Too bad he doesn’t see what I see.

He thinks he’s all wrong for me. Too old.

But age is just a number. In our souls, where we’re both one with the sea, we’re the same.

He says I shouldn’t want him.

But I do…

They clash in every sexy, dangerous way imaginable. But is attraction — and maybe even love — enough to overcome all that stands between them? Or will their happily ever after remain elusive?



“Sailing – and the freedom of the ocean. Do you have any experience on the ocean and if so where did you get it?”

My experience isn’t anything at all like Adrian Tate’s, the hero in Rogue Wave. Tate spent over ten years out on the ocean, and he’s inspired by the nonfiction book The Outlaw Ocean and Ian Urbina’s reporting for the New York Times.

I do have a lot of experience on Haven Island (aka Bald Head Island, NC). We visit every summer, and one day I dream of owning a place on the island. My husband and I were married on the island, as were my brother and his wife. I have a lot of family that don’t live on the island, but live nearby. I grew up going out for short fishing trips on the ocean with my parents near Morehead, NC. I can’t say I enjoy fishing (I’d really rather not kill any animal- and, I get seasick the moment I can’t see land- so, yeah, I’m not at all like Tate) but I’ve always harbored a love for the ocean and the sand in my toes. For me, a summer isn’t a summer without time at the beach.
