Stuck on a cruise, can hate at first sight lead to love?
What happens when a nurse and her client’s daughter set off on a cruise? Hate at first sight—in a charming romantic comedy.
Maddison Clark needs a financial miracle to pay for her autistic brother’s dream music college. When Countess Pakenham, recovering from a stroke, confuses Maddie with the private duty nurse she’s supposed to interview, Maddie plays along.
Her new job? Helping a woman in the tail end of her recovery on a month-long cruise. Maddie isn’t comfortable lying, but her knowledge from the nursing program she couldn’t complete and the massive salary she’ll earn help her feel better about her secret. A break from her crappy job and a chance to see the world are added perks.
Lady Alex Pakenham is pleased when her workaholic mother invites her on a cruise to celebrate her progress in recovery. That feeling dampens when her mother’s young boyfriend joins them. When Alex meets Maddie, the most frustrating woman she’s ever come across, her mood downright sours.
As Maddie and Alex realize they both have what’s best for the countess at heart, their icy relationship thaws. Soon, it sizzles, and Maddie is faced with the difficult task of coming clean. When she does, will a happy ever after be on the cards?
