How to Escape a Rip Tide #beach #amreading #romance

Who doesn't love a beach?
I love to watch youngsters build sandcastles or jump in and out of the waves.

What if the ocean has hidden currents. Strong ones that pull you out to sea?
Me? I'd panic. Then hopefully, I'd remember this trick.

First, if you are a poor swimmer, shout for help.
Next, don't fight against the current, rather swim diagonally through it always heading for dry land. 
Eventually, you will exit the current and be able to swim to the shore. 

I researched rip tides for my Heroes of Westhorpe Ridge series. My fictional town on the North Carolina coast has a notorious riptide. Adam, the hero of Desire, Deceit and Doctor  pulls a young boy from one at the start of the book. 
Sadly, he suffers for it. Read on to find out how.


Mandy Devlin heard Duffy, the black border collie they were minding for the sheriff, barking somewhere outside. As she peered through the hotel window, her son’s frightened yell rang out. “Mom! Help! Get him off me! Put me down, you creep.”

Heart racing, she snatched up an empty beer bottle from behind the lunchroom counter as she pelted through the hotel. When she shot out the front door, she saw a huge man standing by a SUV. He held Ben aloft and snarled something Mandy couldn’t hear. Both looked like they’d taken an impromptu swim. Their hair plastered their scalps. Their soaked clothes clung to their bodies. Neither wore shoes. The stranger had his back to her, but a pool of water had already formed around his feet. Over his shoulder, she saw Ben’s pale face and wide, terrified eyes.

Panicked, breathing hard and fast, Mandy raced across the hotel’s parking lot. “Let my son go. Now.”
The big guy holding her son ignored her and growled at Ben. “Be quiet and behave.”

He sounded fierce and raspy, as if he had a something stuck in his throat. Furious, scared, and determined to free her son, Mandy brought the bottle down on the stranger’s head. It smashed into a satisfying shower of broken glass. The stranger released Ben, staggered slightly, and crumpled face down at her feet.

Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family--under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam--the man she loved and lost so long ago.

Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her.

As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?
