Little White Lies by R.C. Matthews


When attorney Madalyn Russell dumps her fiancé at the altar, she temporarily escapes the scrutiny of her friends and family on her honeymoon cruise. Too bad she forgot she is assigned to dine at the “newlywed” table on the fully booked cruise. Goodbye exquisite cuisine, hello standard buffet fare. Nothing will tempt her to enter that lion’s den. Or so she thinks.

When the board of directors orders devilishly handsome Royce Spencer to seek rest alone on a cruise, he sets his sights on Madalyn and offers a deliciously indecent proposal to her dining room dilemma. He’ll pose as her husband in exchange for companionship during the cruise. Royce is a gifted liar with a great sense of humor that has everyone at the newlywed table laughing and no one suspecting the truth.

Is the opportunity to enjoy all the ship has to offer worth the little white lies they'll have to tell? What is it about Royce that makes Madalyn want to engage in a fling at the age of thirty for the first time in her life and toss her tightly held beliefs overboard? The whirlwind love affair catches them both by surprise. Is it possible that in the midst of all the little white lies, they will each discover their soul mate? And when Royce is accused of white-collar crime with Madalyn as his key witness, will Madalyn finally learn that life is not always as black and white as it seems?

Romancing the Seas by Cait O'Sullivan


Sous-chef Pippa Renshaw thinks a change of scene will mend her bruised heart, so she swaps her job in a prestigious London restaurant to head-chef on a cruise ship sailing around New Zealand. A great plan until she meets her new CEO, the delectable Jonathon Eagleton, and discovers she has to share a suite with him.

Even though sparks fly whenever they are together, Jonathon steadfastly keeps her at arm’s length, which suits Pippa just fine because she’s still getting over the betrayal of the last time she had a relationship with the boss.

The situation is starting to feel like solitary confinement until a thunderstorm traps them in a tramper’s hut while hiking. Suddenly a different kind of storm unleashes inside the hut.

But will they be able to go back to their previous status now the line has been crossed?

Reach for Tomorrow by Peggy Gaddis


Reach for Tomorrow is a story of a beautiful and disillusioned nurse who found excitement, challenge, and love aboard an ocean-going freighter.

When Claire Frazier turned in her candy-striped probationer’s uniform for a pin that read “Registered Nurse,” she knew she owed a debt to those who had made her happiness possible. At once she set out to pay off her obligation with interest - and with love. To her patients, Claire gave her time, her understanding, and the skill of her hands. To her fiancé, Dr. Richard Massey, she gave the devotion and tenderness of her heart.

Both mocked her; abused her good intentions. Disillusioned and burning with shame, Claire had to pick up and mend the pieces of her broken heart.

The scene of Claire’s reunion with life and love is a world cruise. Among the passengers who change her life are the attractive second officer, a detective, a confidence artist, and a romantic teenager. The ports of call on her emotion-filled voyage include a visit with a would-be suicide, a ship-wide search for the strange case of a missing passenger, and an expensive - and possibly dishonest - game of cards.

Magic Moment by Angela Adams


When the FBI brings Laura Roberts - a quiet, reserved bookkeeper - in for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she works, an uneasy Laura resigns her job - only to be attacked by thugs.

Chase Donovan intends to spend a few peaceful days on his boat getting his head together - and finds a woman being assaulted by two men who say his father told them to do it.

Chase doesn’t want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn’t understand why she’s a target. Can they learn to work together to discover the truth - before someone dies?

R.C. Matthews’ debut book entitled Little White Lies, was conceived in 1997 while living in Cologne, Germany.

Determined to finally realize her life-long dream of writing a book, R.C. Matthews spent 15 months writing on weekends to complete the manuscript.

R.C. Matthews was raised in the Metro-Detroit area by deaf parents along with four siblings. She graduated from a liberal arts college with a B.A. in Accounting and German and continues to work as a certified public accountant. She enjoys traveling with her loving husband and children, reading, down-hill skiing, and playing board games. Talisman and LIFE are high on the list of favorites at her home.

For thirty years she wrote traditional romances for a single publisher, Arcadia House. For the last ten of those years she wrote principally nurse novels.

She also wrote “love novels,” a romance genre invented by lending-library publishers that was considered a bit racier for the times.
