For Laura Babson, a seven-week vacation on Sunset Beach, North Carolina’s southernmost beach, seemed a relaxing way to escape the routines of life as a doctor’s wife in a small town. For sports columnist Neal Nickelsen, an eight-week sabbatical on the pristine barrier island promised great things for his golf game. But after seeing each other for the first time in more than twenty years, they soon discover this summer would be about something entirely different.
“For my friend who was considering moving aboard, The Liveaboards was the perfect gift. The novel presents a true picture of this lifestyle.” —Heartland Boating Magazine 2008 was a humdinger, economically, politically, and emotionally. People who live on boats at Sunset Marina didn’t escape the turmoil of the stock market taking a dive, $5 a gallon fuel at marina pumps, and a black American becoming President. Love at Sunset is a contemporary romance that continues the lives of liveaboards on Lake Guntersville in northern Alabama during this volatile time. Genuine liveaboards are people who own no land-based property. At Sunset Marina, they are homogeneous in feeling aff ection for their own boats; in their appreciation for the unspoiled beauty of Lake Guntersville, which is set in the foothills of the Appalachians; and in their quest for true love. Otherwise, they are a diverse bunch that relish their individuality, maybe even flaunt it. About that quest for true love, even amid all the brouhaha of everyday life, it is something they can’t resist. Well, who can? Considering that their lifestyle is unusual to begin with, you might expect their endeavors in this arena to be a bit unusual too. You wouldn’t be wrong.
"We vampires are focused and tend to shape our own realities."My name is Katrina Rawlings, and I am a vampire. I declare that with neither pride nor ego. I am simply nature's most dangerous predator. On occasion, it's a very helpful quality. It helped me protect Caleb Taylor one day when he was very young. But that single, traumatic day is behind him now; wiped from his memory, or so I hope. He has finally matured into a rather striking young man, and believe me, I like what I see. I'm feeling hopeful for our future together, in fact. But an adversary from my past has returned to haunt me, and she's trying to get back at me through Caleb. That was her first...and last...mistake. I'll protect my Caleb at all costs, and I'll make her regret the day she was born. So, I suppose that I'm not just a vampire. I'm about to become someone's worst nightmare.
