Ina Andersen finally has the life she's fought so hard to win: The Rogue Roast in Denver has her name on the deed, she bought Real Adult Curtains for her new apartment, and built a veritable Fort Knox around her heart. But then Ina's one weakness saunters into the cafe, as gorgeous as the day she put the first crack in Ina's Scotch-taped heart ten years ago.
Dani Jones might have spent her youth breaking hearts, but her only concern now is her precious four-year-old son, Kennin. When her purple neon breaks down on their way to the coast, Dani Jones thinks she left her good-luck at the Colorado border. Then she steps into a tiny cafe to use the phone and sees the one person she wished had never gotten away. Dani's exhausted and ready to give up, but finding Denver might just have been her best luck of all.
Can they put a decade of battered hearts behind them, or will Dani's dreaming and Ina's stubbornness prove too much?
Wind in Her Sails (A Polyamorous Pirate Novel)
Mercedes Chavez has everything a Spanish merchant's daughter is supposed to want -- a house to herself, a certain future, and a young comandante for a husband. Except all Mercedes wants is the ocean wind in her hair and a compass to guide her. When her husband, Severo, is called away hours after they exchange vows, Mercedes takes to the sea. Fate has other plans for her, however. The crew is captured by pirates and she must choose between jumping overboard or mutinying and captaining the vessel herself.
Maybe a pirate ship -- and its young first mate, Isam -- is exactly what she needed. Isam might be the perfect combination of carefree passion and tanned muscle, but a love affair with one of her own sailors might just undermine her tentative position as captain. Just as she's ready to surrender to her desire, fate strikes again: the first naval vessel they attack happens to be captained by the very husband she tried to leave behind.
How can she choose between wind in her sails and a port to call home?
