By Jennifer Fulton

Moon Island Series | Book 4

A bodyguard gig for a celebrity on a tropical island...there are worse ways to make a living.

As wholesome Dr. Kate in the hottest soap on daytime television, Lauren Douglas is promoted to her audience as a role model for young women. The strict morality clause in her contract is not the only reason she stays closeted. Her dad is a powerful right-wing politician, and a gay daughter won’t help his political aspirations.

Just as she is about to renew her contract, Lauren is publicly outed by an unfaithful former lover with a grudge. The story is all over the media, embarrassing her father and enraging a fan who loses his mind and shoots her.

All of which sounds like spoiled-people problems to FBI Special Agent Pat Roussel, whose hunt for the Kiddy Pageant Killer has consumed every waking moment for three years. Suffering from burnout, Pat is taking a few months’ break, working in private security. The last thing she expects is to find herself babysitting a celebrity who has been banished to a desert island by her father, while the cops hunt down the guy who wants to kill her. It’s a dirty job.

Sarah Buchanan would never in a million years have used those words to describe herself. Never. But it's been almost a year since her longtime girlfriend left her for a man, and she's suddenly realized that those words now describe her with frightening accuracy, along with one more: boring.

The hardest part is leaving her blue-eyed dog, Bentley, behind. But at least he's in the capable hands of her family. She thinks.

Natalie Fox is the exact opposite of Sarah. She's flighty, spontaneous, and lives in The Now. It's how she's always been, and for better or for worse, Natalie loves her carefree life.

Take two stubborn, polar opposites with an attraction for one another they're trying desperately to ignore; throw in a couple of wise Italians, a handful of quirky friends, some homemade cannoli, and a far-too-observant dog; stir vigorously, then sit back, relax, and enjoy...
