Monkeys and Mayhem
Anna’s always done what’s expected of her. When her grandfather passes away and she no longer has to be his caretaker, she applies to the local university. To celebrate her acceptance, she and her best friend head out to their favorite bar to celebrate. There she meets Hayden who takes her home for one unforgettable night before he heads to Thailand on a doctor exchange.
Hayden loves his work doing reconstruction work in the local hospital, but when a reminder of his damaging past shows up, he heads thousands of miles away to escape. He doesn’t really want to practice in a plastic surgery clinic again, but it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.
What he didn’t expect was for Anna, who he’d only spent one night with, to show up on his porch asking for a place to stay. He can’t turn her away in a foreign country, especially after she confides that instead of going to school, she spent her entire savings on a plane ticket to come see him.
With Hayden running from the past and Anna running from the future—will they allow themselves to embrace the present?
She needs peace and quiet. He’s a distraction.
She wants to be left alone. He’s inevitable.
She has a writer’s block. He might be the cure.
The only thing Jessica Slade wanted was some peace and quiet, and to finally finish her book.
So, a place called A Drop of Paradise was supposed to do the trick. With its stunning sandy beaches, crystal clear, aquamarine waters and tropical sunsets, it was supposed to cure more than a writer’s block. But, when an unfortunate series of events leaves her stranded on a remote island with an overbearing, arrogant, roguish, but ruggedly handsome stranger, her life starts to seem much more like the romance novels that she writes about.
Broad-shouldered Mike Stone is irresistible, sexy and cooler than a mojito in your hand, and maybe even a perfect, muscled ideal for the cover of her next novel, but not all the imagination in the world could prepare her for what can happen between two strangers on a spit of sand, when sparks start to fly and anger turns to lust.

A Drop of Paradise is the first book in the series Bookworms & Alphas!
