isn't so much about being on your own as it is about choosing to be together."

"Tracy Sumner does an awesome job of creating fun, feisty, laugh-out-loud dialogue. She also stirs up a tremendous amount of sexual tension between the two main characters."
From the Author
Soon after the release of Tides of Love, I began receiving letters asking when Noah Garrett's older brother, Zachariah, would get his own story.
I had always intended to write Zach's story, but when I finished Tides of Love and thought to start Tides of Passion, I wasn't sure who could lure Zach away from his lonely, quite solitary existence. He was committed to being a father but had stated in no uncertain terms that he would never marry again.
This character was definitely not interested in falling in love.
In an allaboutromance.com review for Tides of Love, someone mentioned that Zach's love interest would have to be a stranger to Pilot Isle; someone he would have instant, insatiable chemistry with. It was then I recalled a scene at the end of Tides of Love, where Zach is headed to the train station to pick up Elle's best friend, Savannah Connor.
At that time, I was living in Manhattan, and I understood Savannah (a native New Yorker herself) as well as any heroine I have ever written. I loved her strength and her vulnerability - and I realized she would be the perfect match for Zach, a man with a strong sense of decency and loyalty to his family, but also a man who thought he would never find another woman to love.
I loved helping him find out how mistaken he was!
