Alison reviewed Jack & Jilted (Harlequin Blaze, 300) on
From the back cover:
Jack never thought he'd fall hard
When his chef eloped with the masseuse, Captain Jack McCullough knew he'd have to pitch in to keep his four-star yacht afloat. Too bad he didn't know one end of the galley from the other, but he did have the looks, the charm and ...the jilted bride?
Dodging caterers' bills instead of confetti, jobless Chloe Winton did what every suddenly-single woman should. She talked herself into taking the week-long honeymoon cruise her former fiance' had paid for. (Yes-for the whole week!) But when she meets the hot, sexy-do-gooding-captain, she's not sure the six days and seven nights will be enough!
Taking a honeymoon cruise alone after being left at the alter, Chloe meets a man who can make her feel better. But they may not be meant for each other. It seems that Chloe will never be able reconcile her planning type life to that of Jack's fly by the seat of his pants style. His life alone on the seas with no one to be responsible for but himself and his own, is not something he wants to change. He may need a partner but he's not sure he wants one. More than that scares him to death. Two people meant for each other who have their own problems to resolve before they can commit.
