Book Excerpt:

My mind returned to the boat, where I fidgeted in my seat. My mother would be so pissed right now. Here I was, not knowing where I was going, to a place with no cell phone reception, alone with two men I didn’t know to a deserted nineteenth-century prison.

I shuddered, recalling the last time I was alone with two males—when It happened––the chain of events that forever changed me. What should I do? Dive in open water and swim back to the shore? No, I was too far out. I had no choice but to remain onboard.

As I gazed out at the vast ocean, I beheld the light turquoise water and surging white caps of the waves. I felt the glorious warmth of the sun and the soothing ocean breeze caressing my skin. I thought, Hollie, didn’t you want an adventure? Here you have it! At that moment, I released the tension in my body. I laughed as I thought of the irony. Here I was, worrying I would get assaulted or killed when, just six months prior, I was so depressed I wanted to die.
