The problem is, there are two other clues to the treasure's whereabouts. Portia Pennington and Sandy Sequoia -- two young women with their own dark secrets -- each holds one of the other clues necessary to locate the hoard of lost doubloons. Jack unites the three misfit adventurers; and in defiance of the pirate's curse, they go in search of the treasure. But they will have to learn to trust one another and work together if they expect to find the gold and survive the hurricane of the century -- a breeze compared to opening their hearts to each other.

  • Shana

    I did not receive this book as a Giveaway, however, the author contacted me and asked if I would read this as an ebook, and do a review. I love a free book, no matter if it's an ebook or paper, so I said I would. I waited for a free Saturday where I could sit and focus on the book. Well, focus, shmokus! I started reading this, and after the first page, I was hooked, quite literally! I couldn't stop reading! I needed to shower and get dressed because we had company coming over. I couldn't stop r [...]

    Let me begin by saying that this is a different kind of book than I would usually read, but I am always looking for something a little bit different to read now and then. And this one certainly fit the bill.I have never been a pirate fan, but I was somewhat intrigued with the history that was central to the adventure. I found Jack a likable person--although I grew tired of his bedroom capers. Thankfully, none of his bedroom antics were told in detail.Portia and Sandy were fascinating characters. [...]

    Argh! Thar be pirates!I had to add a new tag to my shelves: I want to read again. Yes, the story is that great! But there is a lot of nautical jargon. I had no idea what those terms meant. They didn't prevent me from enjoying the book. They made me want to know more. So the next time I read it, I plan to have pictures of boat parts and some kind of nautical dictionary to get a better feel. I felt I was onboard. Is there a sailing for dummies out there? I'll have to look for it.Michael Reed McLau [...]

    What a refreshing read! I had this book far too long before committing to reading it, it's pretty short so I breezed through once I did start it. At first I was a little intimidated by the sailing terms but after a couple of chapters it was easy to catch on. The characters were well thought out and all had their own story to tie into the overall experience which I enjoyed; plus they had great personalities. Of course, a treasure hunting adventure is always exciting and when you add in a possible [...]

    I received this book for free as an ePub edition from the author. (Thanks, Michael!) I just finished reading it, and I have to say, I really enjoyed this book! The story starts out with some history, a tale about pirates and sunken treasure. Then it is modern day, and we are joining Jack, Portia and Sandy on their quest to find this treasure. As the title says, there is sex and love, each person searching their own heart to discover the difference between the two. Each person also must learn les [...]

    I found this to be an exhilarating thrill-ride that kept me glued to the page. It has all the elements of an excellent summer beach read - tropical scenery, sexy women and buff sailors. There is a great treasure-hunting mystery that is complicated by a love triangle and a killer hurricane. This story moves very briskly and you will miss it when you find yourself on the last page. I wish all my books were this good!

  • Lady Belinda

    I purchased this book today and wasn't able to put it down at all (well, just once to eat dinner). I really enjoy a good treasure hunt type of book that includes outrunning a monstrous storm, in this case Hurricane Andrew, love, lies, betrayal and redemption. Definitely a great book. Enjoy your trip in the calm waters of the Caribbean before the storm.

  • Angi

    I won this book from . It was a fast, easy read--- although it was a bit too in-depth related to sailing terms for a landlubber such as myself. It was a good story, giving "sex & love, trust & betrayal" as promised in the title, and the characters were very interesting.

    A fun little read of a movie novelization. Lots of sailing, romance, and intrigue.
