Moving to a new place isn’t easy…

Until a neglected ship and its owner make her feel at home

After spying a boat in need of some TLC, single mom Andi Sterling strikes a deal with its owner, Zeke Donovan, who shares her passion for restoring old things. Uncovering the legendary ship’s secrets draws them closer. Is it too soon for Andi to open her heart to the chance to build new dreams?


Guest Post: Does Zeke Keep his Promises?


Early readers have remarked that Zeke is a likeable guy. What’s not to like? He’s very attractive, friendly, a successful owner of a marine supply store, smart, and he even has a sense of humor. But he’s in his late thirties, and he’s never been married and doesn’t have kids. And it looks like he lives with dad. Really? Could be Zeke is a guy afraid to make a commitment. Here are the facts. You be the judge.


  • As Zeke will tell you, he doesn’t live with his dad, his dad lives with him in a big house he’s restored himself. When it became clear his dad couldn’t live alone, he insisted Art move into the room Zeke fixed up just for him.


  • Zeke was only a little kid when his mom died, and his dad protected him from the worst parts of the story of her death. Then Art showed Zeke lots of love and tried to give him a good life. Looks like Zeke has made the same commitment to his dad.


  • Art had two serious concussions as a young man and he never fully recovered—now his memory lapses and confusion are getting worse as he gets older. Zeke has searched for the best care for his dad he can find. He worries about Art—a lot—but his commitment never wavers.


  • Zeke tries to shield Art from the mishaps his memory lapses create in the store. But he can’t fool Art, who get a little annoyed by Zeke hovering around and checking his work. Zeke keeps a watchful eye, but is careful not to undermine his dad.


Hmm…Andi hasn’t had great luck with love in the past, but looking at Zeke, her luck could be about to change. What do you think?
