Romance novels are all about strong women, but in my latest novel,
FINE, Olivia goes above and beyond trying to save our hero, Cole, from
drowning. She jumps off the dock before realizing a) he doesn’t really need any
help and b) she can’t really swim.
In honor of her somewhat misguided heroics and his nickname for
her—Supergirl—I wanted to rank my top five female superheroes. And don’t worry
about Olivia, Cole knows that the best way to stop hypothermia is to use body

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new
vintage shop. It's the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody
knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not
getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she's
rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she's
ever laid hands on.
Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing
her arms around his neck in an effort to "save" him. In fact, he'd like to spend
a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He's just not expecting that real
trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or
will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?
