Forced to share a stateroom with her ex-fiancé, Caitlyn fakes amnesia to stay on board her dream Alaskan cruise. Torn over deciding his future, Cruise Director Gregory tumbles into helping her. As they grow closer, unspoken secrets threaten to rip them apart, for good.

If these were changed into rentals then additional drag on the housing segment purchase cialis would be avoided. The commander viagra drug is a blue colored tablet, which is a medicine used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (impotence). Initial studies show low price cialis a decrease in pain and an improvement in function for people with various types of arthritis, and the benefits lasted anywhere from three to twelve months. But people who can take up higher dose can go for effective and safe alternatives such commander viagra as kamagra, which is again a sildenafil medicine with better work mechanism and lower prices. Caitlyn hadn’t planned on travelling alone on the Alaskan cruise and she certainly hadn’t planned on being bumped into on her entrance into the cruise ship and having her phone drop into the sea. Even though Caitlyn didn’t believe in mystical powers like her sister did, she had to admit to an odd sense of having known Greg – one of the ships senior crewmembers – before. With complications arising all around on the cruise – including the unexpected problem of her ex-fiance turning up – Caitlyn isn’t sure whether she should trust her instincts and rely on Greg or whether she’s bitten off more than she can chew.

I really enjoyed this full length story. With a deliciously slow pace – much like a cruise itself – I loved the vibrant and well drawn characters, Caitlyn and Greg in particular. The recognition between the two – even though they’d never met before – was interesting and captured my attention. I also could appreciate the added complication of Caitlyn’s ex, Adam, and the holes Caitlyn kept on unintentionally digging for herself. With a slow, sweet pace to the story I feel this should appeal to a wide variety of readers.

I enjoyed the plot – finding it both refreshingly different and complicated enough to maintain my interest. Greg has a few unresolved issues with his family and Caitlyn’s character came across to me as a little adrift. I was pleased that they both found ways to help each other – and thus stay in each other’s orbit – as they slowly got to know one other. This helped the story roll along at a good – albeit slow – pace and I really enjoyed watching everything unfurl as the story progressed.

I don’t feel that readers looking for an intense or action-packed story will find this here, but I am certain that anyone looking for a lovely, sweet and character-driven ship-board romance style of story should definitely check this out. There is just the one chaste kiss right at the very end of the story – but I feel this style of slow romance will make the story more suitable to a wider range of readers.

With interesting and complicated characters, a strong off-ship presence of both plot and characters and plenty of conflict with the third-wheel-ex-fiance I found this to be a well written, interesting and lovely full length story.
