Sambrea Sinclair is struggling to maintain a strong hold on a company that's been in her family for generations. But there's someone else who has an alternate plan for the failing yachting company.

Craig Caldwell is awestruck when he first meets Sambrea. Using his clever wit and aggressive nature, he begins to woo her after they meet purely by chance on a secluded, moonlit beach.

Things are pointing in Craig's favor until Sambrea discovers that he is none other than the CEO of Caldwell Incorporated, the very company that wishes to take over her Sinclair Yachting company.

ISLAND INTERLUDE shows that pleasure can definitely be found in a business venture. Hudson-Smith manages to create a unique balance for these two stubborn characters, with Craig's comical personality and Sambrea's sarcastic nature. This mixed with the unfurling of surprising events make ISLAND INTERLUDE unpredictable and original. (May, 320 pp., $5.99)
