Trouble After Dark by Marie Force

Gansett Island Series, Book 21

HTJB, Inc (December 24, 2019)

Family Saga/Contemporary Romance





The last place in the world he wants to be is on Gansett Island…
Deacon Taylor stepped up for a friend and got himself thrown in jail, and when he’s given a choice of felony charges or leaving town with his police chief brother Blaine, he chooses the latter, consigning himself to a summer under his annoying older brother’s supervision.

Julia Lawry used the last of her resources to come to Gansett for her sister Katie’s wedding and has no idea how she’s going to get back to Texas to clean up the mess she left behind. Another relationship has ended in dramatic fashion, and she’s put herself on a “dick diet,” swearing off men who use and discard her.

When Deacon talks Julia into taking off with him during her sister’s wedding, neither of them can know how that wild ride on his motorcycle will be the start of the most important journey either of them will ever take.

Another summer on Gansett Island is heating up, and love is in the air!

Another wonderful addition to the Gansett Island series. In Trouble After Dark we have Deacon, a noncommittal bachelor who does not want to be back on the island, and Julia who is suffering emotionally and physically. They are both floundering in life. Gansett Island is known to help heal wounds and fix broken hearts and works its charm on these two wonderful characters. Marie Force takes us back for another perfectly matched romance that was realistic flawed characters woven around social issues. Trouble After Dark is a delight!
