Dylan Hart, famous author of horror fiction, has a problem. He hasn't been able to put words on paper in almost two years. Could it be as the critics say? Is he afraid to write book number thirteen? When his old college professor and mentor, Jonas Wilson, asks him to house-sit for the summer he thinks the change of scenery may be just what he needs. What he doesn't need is a cool blonde to complicate things. Especially not one who is as much a romantic as he is a cynic.
Amberly Ross jumps at the chance to return to Florida for the summer. While recovering from an awful marriage, she's writing a historical romance about a pirate. What better place to spend her days than on the beach at Indian Rocks? But why is Dylan Hart already there when she arrives? It could be an honest mistake, but they both think their old friend is setting them up. Until some very unusual things start to happen. They begin to think it may not be Jonas they have to blame for the matchmaking.
