Annabelle's life has been trying since she caught her husband, Charles, cheating on her. Although they have been separated for a year, she hasn't decided whether to make it permanent or not. Dedicating her life to her husband and her boys, her confidence has taken a beating. Heading to the island paradise of St John, she is using the trip as thinking and reflection time to make a final decision. What she doesn't count on is the presence of Johnny on the island and the attraction between them. Being older than him, she doubts his attraction to her. Johnny has secrets himself and keeps most of himself a mystery to protect himself.
Annabelle, at the start, is completely lacking in confidence and self-esteem but we see her blossom under the careful ministrations of Johnny. Equally Johnny's aloofness at the start melts away with nurturing by Annabelle.
Annabelle still has a long way to go, with Charles never far away. This was a beautiful start to one woman's journey of self-discovery.

Charles is a manipulative SOB, using his financial control over Annabelle to keep her. Annabelle tries to remain strong and confident but without Johnny, the confidence she has gained starts to slip. Annabelle discovers some of Johnny's secrets and he could be the one to stand up for her and help her get life back.
Annabelle's confusion and uncertainty reigns throughout as she tries to understand Charles' motives, who she is and what she wants. Whilst you can't help but feel frustrated by Annabelle, in understanding more about her situation you can't help but empathise with her and hope she gets the HEA she deserves.
Although short it was succinct, endearing, captivating and engaging. I am thoroughly enjoying this series.

With Annabelle trying to make her relationship with Charles work to protect her sons and Johnny, she is under pressure to reignite all parts of their relationship. When Johnny makes a reappearance, he reminds her of the life she could have with him, feeling loved and cherished. It could finally give her the courage she needs to end it once and for all with Charles and begin a new life with Johnny.
Being ground down time and time again by Charles is the reason she gave back into him so easily. She knows what will happen to those she loves if she doesn't and she feels completely alone in her struggles.
Annabelle coming into her own and discovering who she is and what she wants is a definite highlight, as is Johnny's devotion and belief in her, which makes their relationship a beautiful one if they can overcome all of the obstacles in their way.
Almost forty-one-year-old Annabelle Morris, wife to multi-billionaire record label executive Charles Morris of Zenith Productions, and mother of two is at a crossroads in her life.
Separated from her husband after walking in on him having sex in the public restroom of a charity event she was hosting, she has arrived on the island of St. John alone and rejected, determined to re-evaluate her life and her marriage. She's tired of being her husband’s showpiece while he pretends she doesn't exist. She's tired of trying to make their marriage work for the sake of their two teenage boys.
When she meets Johnny Lightning, a sexy but mysterious piano-playing, bearded sailor, she is tempted to break vows she has never before broken. But Johnny is much younger than her and seems to be hiding more than a few secrets of his own.
From the laid-back sandy beaches of the Caribbean to the elite circles of Dallas high society, Annabelle is forced to make critical choices.
Is a chance for happiness worth the risk of giving up the life she has always known?
Worth jeopardizing her own and possibly even her children's future?
In the end, will she stay on her present course or brave a new and uncharted one?
Find Me, Remember Me, and Keep Me is a full and complete novel in three separate parts.
A standalone Tempest spin-off.
Are you Mrs. Morris?” The driver, a heavily bearded man wearing a Quiet Mon Pub ball cap, peered at me through his wraparound sunglasses. In his late twenties or early thirties, he looked much younger than I had imagined a caretaker to be.
I nodded and moved toward the jeep.
“You ready to go?” He dipped his shaded gaze slowly, sliding it over me. “Or do you need some more time at the jewelry store so you can find a more expensive watch with bigger diamonds?”
“No, I’m ready.” I frowned at the snide comment that implied I was as status conscious and shallow as all those social-climbers I had such contempt for. It was an unkind and unwarranted remark. He didn’t really know me. How could he presume to after only one glance? Then again, I looked at myself every day in the mirror and hardly knew who I was anymore.
“You’re late,” he complained. “You’re lucky I decided to swing back by the dock one more time, especially since the ferry’s been in for over a half hour. Still I wouldn’t have wanted to miss that fancy dress and the sun reflecting off that flashy watch of yours. Get in.” He gestured with his chin toward the passenger side. Moving my bag to one arm, I grabbed the handle and yanked, but the door wouldn’t open.
“Probably used to your chauffeur opening the door for you, huh?” He raised his bearded chin and lifted his shaded eyes to the heavens as if petitioning the island gods for patience. “It usually works better if you unlock it first, fancy face. The power feature is broken. You’ll have to do it manually.” His voice was a low baritone, but the insinuation was as unpleasant as his lack of manners.
I blew the humidity dampened curls out of my eyes and did as he suggested. “Why even bother to lock it?” I grumbled once I was in the seat, twisting around to grab the seatbelt.
“Because hardly anyone ever sits there,” he answered absently, glancing in the side mirror. He scanned a quick look for traffic and then pulled away from the curb.
I can certainly understand why, I thought sarcastically as I settled into my seat. He meticulously steered the vehicle around the busy shopping area alongside the dock, and I took advantage of his distraction to look him over. He wasn’t bad. Well, at least from what I could see of his face underneath his untrimmed beard, thick mustache, and long layers of unkempt midnight black hair barely contained by the ball cap. He reminded me of Pierce Brosnan. Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, to be more specific. Well, if I wanted to get really technical about it, Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in to Die Another Day after he had been captured and tortured for fourteen months by the North Koreans without the benefit of a hairstylist or a razor.
In other words…quite possibly hot.
But who could tell what was lurking under all that scrunge?
Maybe instead of Pierce Brosnan, the guy was actually Steve Buschemi. I chanced a second look to be sure…and felt a delicious, rippling heat along my spine.
Definitely not Steve Buschemi under there.
