Rum Runner
Tricia Leedom

Published by: Ink Monster LLC
Publication date: July 18th 2017
Genres: Adult, Adventure, Romance

Perfect for fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Janet Evanovich, this action-packed debut from a fresh voice in contemporary romance offers a sexy and comedic take on love, adventure, and what it means to trust your heart.
English socialite Sophie Davies-Stone has been longing to meet her father since she was a little girl. When he sends her a mysterious medallion and asks her to forward it to him in Miami, she can’t help herself from doing something totally un-Sophie-like. Rather than mailing it as instructed, Sophie hops on a flight to Florida.
But the family reunion never happens. Instead, Sophie is attacked and almost kidnapped by her father’s enemies. Her savior is Jimmy Panama, a cocky and annoyingly handsome former Navy SEAL. Sophie isn’t the only one who’s annoyed. After years of trying to find a way to pay back his CO, Jimmy never thought his debt would get him mixed up with his commander’s uptight, British daughter. He just wants to put her on the next flight home and get back to his low-stress life in Key West, but fate has other plans.
As Sophie and Jimmy embark on a heart-pounding adventure through Key West and the Caribbean, Sophie finds herself falling for the snarky American. Still, her head says Jimmy is all wrong for her, and the more she finds out about him – and her father – the more uncertain she is about who she can trust.
One thing is clear. Sophie is in way over her head, and her greatest adventure might be her last.

They were forty minutes into the flight, gliding over the water like a pelican in a cloudless blue October sky, when the Duchess spoke again.
“Is Panama your real name?”
Jimmy softly banked the Cessna in a southeasterly direction. When he leveled out the wings, he said, “It is now.”
“So you weren’t born with it.”
“Where did it come from then?”
“It was my handle back in my SEAL days. I made it legal about a year before I left.”
“Your handle?”
“You know, like ‘Duchess’ is your handle.”
“I would rather it not be.”
“Everybody needs a handle.”
“What was your birth name then?”
“It’s a secret.”
“Fine. Don’t tell me.” She looked out the passenger side window.
He chuckled. “Tell you what, you tell me one of your secrets and I’ll tell you my last name.”
“You’ll show me yours if I show you mine?”
Jimmy couldn’t hold back a grin. “If you insist.”
“I’m as serious as a heart attack.”
“I don’t have any secrets.”
“I bet you do.”
The Duchess hesitated so long Jimmy thought she wasn’t going to take the bait. “Fine,” she said suddenly, “I’ve seen the film Dirty Dancing ninety-seven times.”
“‘Nobody puts Baby in a corner?’ That flick?”
“Yes. How do you know that line?”
Jimmy grinned. “I might live on a rock, but it doesn’t mean I live under one. Why ninety-seven times? That seems kind of excessive.”
She stared out the passenger side window. “I like the feeling the film evokes. The close relationship between Baby and her father. When I was little, I used to daydream that Dr. Houseman was my dad.”
“If you’re hoping for Mad Dog Thompson to be a Jewish doctor with a bungalow in the Catskills, you’re in for a huge disappointment, darlin’.”
