A cruise around the Caribbeean offered just what Rainy Jackson needed to get over her faithless ex-fiance--sun, swimming, and solitude. As the heat sank into her bones, she began to feel interest in the world again...and in handsome fellow passenger Winston Michaels.

Winston had also hoped for time alone to reflect. But finding a friend in faith in the lovely Rainy helped him deal with his twin sister's death without relying on unhealthy means of deadening the pain. And Winston's outlook brightened further when dates back home in Miami brought him and Rainy even closer. Would Rainy be the one to share Winston's life voyage?

This book was good, but it seemed like it took too long to get to the culmination of the story. You knew how it would end all along (like all romances do) but this book seemed like it took a very long time getting there. Has a couple of underlying plots which could have been done without, too.

First Mates by Cecelia Dowdy
This relationship started on a cruise ship on the rolling seas and continued on shaky ground. Two steps forward and one back for this couple.

Winston Michaels and Rainy Jackson both head out from their homes in Miami to board a seven day cruise. Both going in hopes of healing their hearts. Rainy's friends convinced her to take this trip to get over her ex-fiance's breaking her heart and Winston's brother bought him the trip for his birthday. A birthday that his twin sister wouldn't be celebrating with him that year. In the loneliness of the crowded ship these two souls find each other.

After enjoying the cruise they decide to stay in touch. Did they deal with their pasts and have clear sailing for the future or would their pasts keep haunting them?

Cecelia keeps this relationship touch and go while bringing other interesting characters along for the ride. Rainy's best friends Sarah and Rachel and their struggles. Linda the flirty office assistant who don't quite do her job. She brings in struggles in marriages, addictions and much more. And lots and lots of flowers.
