Overview

Angelina Guerra decides to end the cold war with her estranged sister by attempting a reconciliation in the Bahamas, the site of her distrastrous excuse for a honeymoon two years before. However, things don't go according to plan as Angelina finds herself mixed up with a handsome British agent as he attempts to recover a fortune in stolen Nazi jewels. So much for her vacation! On the plus side, agent Devlin Shay is charming and well-mannered. However, he loses points because: a) he's gorgeous and b) he's British. In other words, he's cut from the same mold as Angelina's worthless ex-husband. Will she hold this against him? Of course, she will!

Ever since I was a small child, I�ve had my nose stuck in a book. Nothing in my childhood world compared to a visit to the library, since I yearned to spend every waking moment exploring the treasured books that lined the shelves.

I started writing stories and poems when I received my first diary at the age of nine. Through the years I�ve filled many diaries with my scribbles, drawings and observations.

In college I studied history and archaeology as I pursued my dream of becoming an explorer of lost civilizations. I didn�t become the next Indiana Jones, but I never lost my love of writing.

When my son started kindergarten, I rejoined the work force as a substitute teacher. At the same time, I began to seriously pursue a writing career. I sold two children�s books and then toyed with the idea of writing a full-length novel.

I�ve always loved classic caper films such as How to Steal a Million with Audrey Hepburn and Peter O�Toole, The Thief who Came to Dinner with Ryan O�Neal and Jacqueline Bisset, and The Hot Rock with Robert Redford. These movies fueled my desire to write a fast-paced romantic caper with a colorful setting and humorous, eccentric characters. With A Mermaid in Paradise, I was able to visit the sunny islands of the Bahamas again, if only in my imagination.

I share my busy life with my husband, son, and a feisty feline named Frodo. Contact me at .
