A new week means another Beach Brides release! You'll want to check out Hope, Book #7, by Aileen Fish The series consists of twelve heartwarming, standalone novellas that are linked by a unifying theme by NYT and USA Today Bestselling authors linked by a unifying theme. The stories are standalone.

About the book…

Twelve friends from the online group, Romantic Hearts Book Club, decide to finally meet in person during a destination Caribbean vacation to beautiful Enchanted Island. While of different ages and stages in life, these ladies have two things in common: 1) they are diehard romantics, and 2) they’ve been let down by love. As a wildly silly dare during her last night on the island, each heroine decides to stuff a note in a bottle addressed to her “dream hero” and cast it out to sea!

Hope Reynolds is a single mom and teacher, so with her busy life she’s forgotten all about the message in a bottle. Chase Bowman, retired rodeo clown, is on a fishing trip with his dad, who’s dying of cancer, when he finds the bottle. His dad makes him promise to contact the woman, but he puts it off for a while as he mourns his dad. More than a year passes, and when he finally emails Hope, she thinks it’s a prank until he mentions the bottle. He charms her into a flirtatious make-believe correspondence, but can it lead to something more?
