Welcome to Haven Island
Sometimes, out of nowhere, comes the rogue wave…
You can ride it, or get pulled under.
I roamed the untamed ocean.
Set out to play the conservationist hero.
Those high seas? They remain lawless for countless reasons.
Over ten years, I saw the worst that humanity has to offer.
And accomplished… nothing.
The futility of it all left me disillusioned. Numb.
I returned to the island of my childhood summers.
All I wanted was to lick my wounds. Hide. Regroup.
Like a rogue wave, an idealistic beauty thrust herself into my world.
Tells me we can make a difference.
We can save the oceans.
We’re one with the sea.
Her naivety might be charming if it wasn’t like looking in a time-warped mirror.
Her natural beauty might be appealing if she wasn’t a college student.
The last thing she needs is a summer romance with a burned-out wreck like me.
She’s too young. She’s got everything in front of her.
And me? I’ve got commitments. And a past.
She promises release.
No need for guilt.
I aim for the crest, for a smooth, fun ride.
But when my past crashes down on us, will we both get pulled under?
The first standalone novel in the Haven Island series, Rogue Wave is a love story about two idealistic souls finding their way in a less than perfect world.
