Ocean's Justice (FREE)

A mysterious castaway. A Scottish hero determined to protect her. Can they survive the storm?
Cast adrift on the Indian Ocean, Maria carries a terrible secret. Wherever she goes, death soon follows, and she’s powerless to prevent it.
William McGregor boarded the SS Trevessa in search of adventure, but he gets more than he bargained for when he saves the mysterious Maria from the sea. She can’t tell them her tragic tale, so the superstitious sailors make up their own stories – and some would sacrifice her to the waves to save themselves from the coming storm.
When the sharks start circling and the storm closes in, are sirens more than just a myth?

Ocean's Triumph

Maria thought stowing away on a ship to follow the man she loves was a great idea – but sleeping in the cargo hold and fighting rats for food isn’t at all what she bargained for, and that’s before she reaches her destination: the desolate colonial outpost of Christmas Island.
Now the man who was once her world won’t even look at her. Perhaps she’d be better off swimming hundreds of miles home.
It’s time to lay the ghosts of their past to rest…or are some ghosts not dead at all?

Finally reunited with the man she loves, Maria agrees to become his wife. Little does she realise this will catapult her into the cream of Christmas Island society.

But with her husband’s increasing work pressures and all eyes upon her, even Maria begins to wonder if she has what it takes to be a society wife. And the ocean’s siren call is growing stronger…

One thing’s for certain: Maria is in for a bumpy ride.
