QUEEN OF THE WAVES
Thompson keeps readers hooked and entertained until the end with a fast-paced, action-packed romance. The memorable characters want something more out of their difficult lives, and the results will surprise you as well as them.
Jacqueline Abington is spoiled, rich and almost always gets her way. She plans on eloping with the gardener, but she needs someone to take her place on the Titanic. Tessa Bowen agrees to the plan; she has nothing to lose and everything to gain by getting away from her mean father and weak mother. She meets and falls for an American on board the ship. She wants to come clean, but if she does, her new life will end and she will have nothing. Will Tessa survive the Titanic‘s voyage and have a new life, or will the iceberg take everything?
