Tess Nelson believes she is poised to become Vice President of Human Resources, but the CEO actually has plans to demote her! Already booked on a business trip to Hawaii, she decides she'll take the ticket and have a vacation. After all, the ticket is non-refundable.

Job stress as an air traffic controller has taken a toll on Carter McConnell; a quiet trip to Hawaii is just what he needs. But the moment he meets Tess, rest and quiet are the last things he'll be enjoying.

When a tropical storm threatens the island, they are stranded together in paradise. Will they survive the storm —and each other?

While some of the antics might seem a tad overboard, this remains a humorous and enjoyable read. Tess and Carter's struggles with their faith are all too familiar, and you'll most certainly be thankful you're not in this paradise! (Sep., 300 pp., $13.99)
