Annabelle watches from the comfort of her bed as her life crumbles and falls apart, avoiding the phone, avoiding the questions. What can she say except that her husband has left her behind in the dust; a younger model has caught his eye.
The thought of revenge is the only thing that has gotten her out of bed in weeks, and then her best friend pushes her for more.
The Cruise seems like the place where, if she can’t mend her broken heart, she can at least have some no-strings attached fun. When she meets Reuben though, common sense seems to take a back seat to her fantasy. But what happens when her fantasy takes control?

Jessica Johannsen has been writing romances since she was a little girl. She always dreamed that one day her knight in shining armor would come and she is equally addicted to fairy tales as she is to chocolate and caramel. Unfortunately, like the heroine of most great romances, the princess has some drudgery before she meets her prince and Jessica worked in advertising for many years while penning her prose at night under the covers with a flashlight. Her husband was down there too. After their ten year marriage ended, Jessica found herself 38, single and kissing frogs once more. What happened to romance, she wondered? As the bad dates continued, she thought, what does a big, beautiful girl have to do to flag down a handsome prince?
She realized that while she was waiting around for him, she could give the rest of the world a little more romance, as well as chocolate and a few dirty thoughts, by sharing her stories. The Cruise series is the first of many more to come. Jessica recommends curling up with a good book and a bag of treats until you find yourself under the covers with your next sexy prince. When not reading, writing or snacking, Jessica can be found on the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, salivating over impractical shoes or having a cocktail with an impossible cute frog.
