Tucker Winslow was twenty-four, and the only son of a 4-Star Navy
Admiral. His Father always expected that Tucker would follow in his footsteps,
but he had other plans. He had his sights set on moving to Alaska and following
his lifelong dream of fishing for king crab on the Bering Sea. He was charming,
witty, and his Mom was always his best friend. Then she became ill, and his
whole world was turned upside down. They spent her last month’s laughing, and
singing the wrong lyrics to 80’s music, just like they’d always done.
Gracie Madison married the man of her dreams when she was only
twenty-two. Now, thirteen years later, she was a widow, trying to figure out
how to get by without her best friend. She loves 80’s music, driving with the
top down, and snacking on greasy food. Her sister’s family lives in Seattle,
and they’ve finally persuaded Gracie to throw caution to the wind and leave
Boston behind.
Both hop in their cars and head for the Northwest Territory. But,
when Tucker’s car breaks down he is forced to hitch-hike the rest of the way.
When these two meet, the bond is instantaneous. Their losses connect them in a
way that’s impossible to ignore, and they form a friendship that helps soothe
wounds that go far too deep to heal. They laugh, they cry, they blast 80’s
music and sing off-key, and they stop at every tourist trap they can find along
the way. Then, as it always does, one night their laughter turns to lust and
they both give in, knowing it will change everything they’ve come to rely on.
Losing someone you know and love can be the hardest thing in the
world. So why does losing someone you’ve just met, yet have come to depend on,
hurt twice as much?
Join Tucker and Gracie as they embark upon the adventure of a
lifetime, and end up on a journey toward finding happiness in a world that was
once filled with pain.
Excerpt
“How did you know
this song always makes me happy?”  She turned to me and flashed the most
breathtaking smile I’d seen her produce.  She really was quite striking.
There was something about her eyes that always seemed to lure me in.
There was an innocence to her, yet I could tell there was  a wildcat
lurking just beneath the surface.  Since we were going to be together for
the next week, I was going to make it my mission to bring that cat out of
hiding.  Yep, by the time we reached Seattle, I had every intention of
showing Gracie Madison just how much fun it could be to cut loose and remember
how to have fun.  Hell, God knows we both could use a little taste of it.
“No one can
resist Rebel Yell.  Remember the video?”  I did my best Billy Idol
impression, complete with lip curl and growl, and that made her laugh.
She had a beautiful rich laugh.  I vowed then and there to make her
laugh more often.  After all, this trip was about chasing our dreams and
finding our happy place.  Right now listening to her laugh as she sang
along with Billy, I felt pretty damn happy.
“More, more,
more.  Owwww!”  Her little fist pumped into the air as if to
punctuate each word.  
“You ever call
that out? During sex, I mean.” I asked casually, not expecting her to answer,
but still hoping to make her blush.  I’ll admit I was surprised when,
rather than getting all flustered like she usually did, she actually answered.
“You mean beg for
more?”  She stole a quick glance in my direction and I gave a single nod.
“Oh yeah,” her voice went really husky, and I could tell she was playing
along, “all the time.”  She flashed me a sexy wink, then threw my question
right back at me.  “What about you, stud? You ever beg the girls for
more?”
“Only when
they’re doin’ it right, sweetheart.”  I chuckled softly, enjoying the fact
that I could still make out the flush on her cheeks, despite it being dark
outside.  My eye caught the sight of flashing blue and red lights in my
side mirror.  I twisted in my seat, seeing that the cop was not far behind
us, then cast my eyes toward the speedometer.  Fifteen over.  Shit.
This did not look good.  “Um, Gracie, you planning on stopping
anytime soon?”
