A childhood marriage dream comes crashing into the rocky reality of adulthood in this love story between a woman who is an island unto herself and a man for whom the world is not enough.

As the two navigate conflicting ideas about the future of a small island's boat-building school, Sydney St. James realizes Devin Fox might be the life raft she didn't know she needed.

Will Devin realize that Sydney, his first friend, first kiss, and first marriage proposal (at the tender age of thirteen), is a safe harbor for his heart — the last and only woman he's ever truly loved?

Set in Mackinac Island, MI, this is the first book in the St. James Sisters collection.

No stranger to hard times, visionary architect Camille Terrell thinks she can handle anything - until she's thrust center stage in an ancient battle between Gods who want to preserve the status quo and those who seek true liberation for all.

She must now decide if her hard-won defenses are enough to take on the new reality of eternal love, magic, and her true identity as the long-lost daughter of the Haitian Goddess of Revolution.

Don't miss this spellbinding page-turner from debut novelist Tana Jenkins.
