RIPTIDE, A Renegades Novel
By Skye Jordan (a/k/a Joan Swan)
Publisher: Cygnet Books
Release Date: May 12, 2017

When pro surfer Zach Ellis isn’t traveling the world-wide competition circuit, he works as a Renegade stunt double for the hit TV series, Hawaiian Heat. After years of tangling with the ocean, his body has paid the price. So when he gets a shot at a star roll on the show, Zach’s all in. He celebrates the career opportunity by taking a chance on a woman who’s not his usual island-girl type, only to discover he can’t bear to let her go. 

Tessa Drake belongs mired in legislation battles in Washington DC, not standing on the sidelines of a filming set in Maui like a wannabe starlet. But even more important than her law career, Tessa needs Zach Ellis's signature on legal papers. Papers that relinquish his parental rights so Tessa can adopt the girl who already calls her mommy. When she discovers Zach has slipped out of town before she makes contact, Tessa takes solace in the sexy star of Hawaiian Heat. A man whose warmth and dazzling grin makes her Mensa-level IQ vanish into thin air.  

After an electrifying night together, Tessa is horrified to discover just who rocked her world.  Zach is stunned to learn he’s a father. And both find themselves caught in a riptide pulling them in the opposite direction of their dreams.

*All books in the Renegades series may be read as stand alone books.

Based on the blurb above and the rave reviews I've been reading all over the internet, this sexy, emotional, contemporary romance sounds like the perfect addition to my summer reading list. 

How about you? What types of books do you enjoy reading during the lazy, hazy days of summer? 

Have you read Skye Jordan/Joan Swan yet? Any favorites you'd recommend?


  1. I've read Forbidden Fling. Loved it. In the summer I want to read books that take me away. Some place warm, where the pace is slow and the water looks inviting.

  2. I have not yet read anything by Skye Jordan This book sounds like a good beach read.
    Summer reads are usually quick, short books and anthologies. If we are traveling, I will pick out books that are set in the area we are visiting. I like to be able to see some of the places mentioned in the books and get a real feel for the settings. Kind of nice to be able to know exactly where a character is standing in a scene.
