“Sexy romance with lots of heart.” —Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times

“...sizzling, in and out of the kitchen. This is one terrific story full of enough adventure, humor, and passion to satisfy any reader” —Betty Cox, Affair de Couer
When an irresistible man meets an independent woman, the chase is on!

Adrian St. Claire, the sexy chef at the Pearl Island B&B is as tempting as the dishes he serves. In fact, he’s never had a woman tell him no–until his family needs help searching for a legendary heirloom on the sunken ship in the island’s cove. To find the treasure they need the help of a woman whose family history is as linked as theirs to the island’s romantic past.

As the owner of the Pirate’s Pleasure, Jackie Taylor is far more interested in running her cruise ship along the Texas coast than chasing tales of lost booty, and even less interested in tangling with a man who collects female admirers just by walking down the street. On top of that, helping the St. Claires could dredge up secrets she’d like to remain buried.

Enticed by Jackie’s resistance, Adrian soon has something more than treasure hunts and casual flirtation in mind . . . and he’s not a man who takes no for an answer. But will they each have the courage to risk their hearts for the greatest treasure of all–falling in love?

Most authors say they grew up reading. But not Julie Ortolon. Born with dyslexia, she didn't even learn to read until her early twenties when she discovered that romance novels were worth the struggle. It was only with the additional discovery of computers with spell-check that she was able to turn her favorite hobby--daydreaming romantic stories--into a career. Having her first novel hit the USA Today bestseller list was a dream come true. Julie lives on the shore of Lake Travis near Austin, TX with her journalist husband, exuberant Australian Shepherd, and spoiled tabby cat.
