A Christmas wish—to be left alone.

Welcome to The Cove
With heavy iron gates, two security stations, and a groundskeeper's cottage, The Cove has everything a billionaire could ask for in a home. Dubbed Billionaire Bachelor Cove because of the resident's single status and income portfolios, The Cove is the perfect place to hide away from the world. But, as the residents soon find out, they can't hide from love.

Her Billionaire Pirate of the Cove

Ever since Ryker James’s testimony in court sent his more ruthless conspirators to jail, he’s been sequestered at The Cove.

Being a reformed “bad boy” is not what it’s cracked up to be. He no longer leads an aimless life filled with bored, fashionable women and questionable adventures. It’s oddly freeing.

His brother, Paris, heads out to a remote island getaway for his honeymoon, and Ryker might get his wish to spend Christmas by himself—his only company, his guilt.
 Unfortunately, his brother left him a parting gift: he set Ryker up with the “dog sitter.”

No way will Audrey Mack take over that dog sitting job from her sweet—though perhaps thoughtless—friend, Clara… until she meets up with trouble at home. Her brother, Michael, has tangled with the wrong people and they target her as a way to get to him.

Frightened and desperate, Audrey must go into hiding to save her brother from getting killed. What better place than The Cove, guarded by its fortress of security, to hide out? The last thing she wants or expects is to find love.

This Christmas, these two get exactly what they don’t want, and so much more.

My Review: 4 Stars
Stephanie Fowers is great at weaving a great romance with a spine-tingling, non-stop, perilous adventure! This story is well written and exciting, with many facets to the twists and turns, and left my head reeling as I tried to figure out who the bad guys were. 
Audrey finds herself entangled in this dangerous plot, as she, too, desperately tries to thwart the villains, while losing her heart to the many puppies in her care...and her pirate neighbor. *swoon* A modern-day pirate is sure fascinating--especially one such as Ryker.

I would've enjoyed this story more if I would have read the first book first. For some reason, I thought I had, but it took me awhile to grasp what was going on and who was who and I think those issues would've been resolved if I had that one under my belt, so I highly recommend reading that one first. 

Overall, the Christmas setting and sweet romance really set this suspense apart and I really enjoyed my time in the Cove.

Content: mild romance; mild-moderate danger/adventure/violence
