SHE'LL EARN HIS RESPECT… Debbie Carpenter wants to prove to her husband that she's not the flaky flower child he first met years ago. More than anything, she wants him to take her seriously. As they embark on their honeymoon cruise, she looks forward to impressing him with her new image.
…OR DIE TRYING! Noel Carpenter hopes to show his bride that he's not the straight-laced sailor she met years ago. He's booked them on a clothes-optional cruise to prove his new laid-back attitude. His plan backfires, however, when he realizes he doesn't know the new Debbie or the demons she battles. But he'll do anything to make their marriage work, even if it kills him.
Debbie Carpenter answered the knock at her cabin door and gasped. In one nano-second, her dreams of a romantic honeymoon cruise with her sexy husband Noel evaporated. Their neighbors on the cruise ship, Rudy and Howard, stood waiting to escort the newlyweds to the hospitality party. The two men wore friendly smiles--and nothing else.
Okay, so Rudy wore a purple terry cloth robe. Untied and gaping, a bathrobe hardly counted as clothing. Astonished, Debbie spun from the two naked men at the door.
From behind her, Noel cleared his throat. “Uh, Debbie? I meant to tell you. This is the Full Moon Cruise.”
Too upset to listen, Debbie squeezed her eyes shut. Yet her brain held the images long after her back was turned: Howard, the college professor from Massachusetts with the well-groomed beard and thinning gray hair. Rudy, the younger man who would have been an irresistible stud-muffin if he bothered to have his hair cut and styled--or at least combed. Judging from their milky white skin, neither man had exposed himself to the sun in a while.
Too involved in some serious, heavy-duty necking, she’d tuned out the ship’s public address system. She’d missed any announcements about leaving port or tonight’s dress code--or lack of dress code. Had Noel’s distraction been deliberate? No, that would be so unlike him. He’d probably tuned out the announcements, too. But what the hell did he mean about the Full Moon Cruise? Howard’s naked butt making the rounds on board ship?
A deep craving for a shot of bourbon clawed its way through the layers of her defenses.
