A woman desperately seeking a new start. A man trying to bury his past. Can a tropical paradise help them both heal?
After her predictable and carefully ordered life is upended, Hope Collins realizes a change is in order. This comes when she unexpectedly wins a scuba diving resort on the Caribbean island of St. Croix and arrives to find things are not as expected. But she’s determined to succeed.
Enigmatic dive instructor Alex Monroe is trying to forget the past and only wants a quiet life. But that’s turned upside down when Hope arrives and he finds himself drawn toward her.
Both have their reasons for avoiding any romantic entanglements, but a series of mishaps throws them together and their resolve is tested. Even paradise can have a dark side. Can they learn to trust each other?
When two pasts collide, their scars overlap and giving love a fighting chance might be harder than Hope thought.
Ultimately, they must decide what is worth fighting for.
Finding Hope is a slow-burn, sensual, contemporary romance featuring compelling, realistic characters and an irresistible setting.
Erin Brockus writes romantic adventures set in exotic, tropical locales, including the Half Moon Bay series.
She was introduced to scuba diving in 1998 by her husband. They have since traveled worldwide enjoying scuba diving, and the exotic locales they have visited form many of the ideas for her characters and stories. She has even been known to don a drysuit and explore the cold, murky waters of the Pacific Northwest.
Born in 1969 in Washington state, Erin had a love of creative writing as a youngster, but the expectations of Real Life got in the way and she went to college to become a pharmacist. After practicing pharmacy for over 25 years, she reduced her hours as a practicing pharmacist to devote more time to writing.
Erin is also an avid runner and cyclist, and lives with her husband, a scuba instructor, in eastern Washington state. Finding Hope is her first novel.
