By Love or By Sea

I enjoyed this fun debut novel by Rachel Rager. A refreshingly clean romance, it kept my interest through the adventures and love story of Alice Lind Frank.

Alice Lind Frank never forgot the boy she loved when she was just six years old, even after he was lost at sea. Now a young woman, Alice has found happiness in living and working with her grandparents, and in the affections of Clarence Hielott, the wealthy shipyard owner who intends to makeAlice his bride.

When a ragged sailor appears in town, Alice is reminded of the young boy who once held her heart. Upon learning that the sailor is in fact her childhood love, Caleb, she finds herself falling for him again.

But Clarence refuses to let this ghost from the past destroy his plans for the future. He exposes the secrets of Caleb’s past, and Alice realizes that the boy she once knew is now a man with a dark history. Soon Caleb and Clarence are locked in a fierce competition forAlice’s heart.

I bought Rachel's book through her website, but you can also buy By Love or by Sea at Amazon
