Meet the authors of the Tropical Tryst Boxed Set:
CJ Matthew, author of A Major Affair, The Colonel’s Daughters novella 1.5
What inspired you to choose your setting? The garden isle of Kauai, in Hawaii, was chosen for Ed and DeAnna’s tropical tryst in A Major Affair because the breathtakingly beautiful island offers such a wide variety of natural landmarks. I’ve vacationed in Hawaii several times and Kauai is by far my favorite locale.
What’s your idea of the perfect tropical getaway? The perfect tropical getaway is an island, or feels like one, with amazing natural sights. The lone hotel or resort offers luxurious accommodations, hedonistic-level pampering, a wide variety of sports and entertainment, and discrete privacy.
What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with? Stranded on an island…if I ever, much later, wanted to be rescued, I’d choose to be castaway with Harrison Ford. The man is sexy, romantic, and has a terrific sense of humor. Those Indiana Jones skills would pay off when we eventually decided to move our torrid love affair off the island and to a more populated venue.
Blurb for A Major Affair:
Quinn’s dream mission: spend a week of leave snooping around a luxury Kauai resort, enjoying the amenities, then report back to a skeptical investor. DeAnna’s nightmare mission: spend a week snooping around a luxury Kauai resort, enjoying the amenities, then report back to her employer. Two people on different sides who never expected to fall in love.
About the Author:
CJ Matthew grew up in an Air Force family living all over the US and around the world, which provided terrific ideas for future books, and the chance to meet real-life heroes/heroines in uniforms and flight-suits. When she isn’t writing, or reading romances, CJ enjoys spending time with her two grown children, their spouses, her brilliant grandson, and her feisty cat, Max. Schedule permitting, she loves to travel, but Max flatly refuses to leave home.

Caitlyn Lynch, author of Finding Cory
What inspired you to choose your setting? A family holiday to Airlie Beach, a town known as the Gateway to the Reef, two years ago. While there we took a boat trip that took in Hamilton Island, Daydream Island and Whitehaven Beach. I fell in love with the islands and knew I had to write a story about them… in fact Finding Cory is planned to be the first of a series set on Sunfish Island Resort, which is based very heavily on Daydream Island.
What’s your idea of the perfect tropical getaway? Anywhere with palm trees, hammocks and strawberry daiquiris! I’m lucky enough to live in the sub-tropics near Brisbane in sunny Queensland, Australia, so sunshine and the beach are probably things I take for granted.
What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with? Jeremy Renner. Not only is he nice to look at, but he’s a builder/renovator in his spare time so he could build us a fabulous house to live in!
Olivia Stratton had it all; a high-powered job in New York, a perfect boyfriend, a perfect life… until it all came crashing down her ears. Being offered the opportunity to live on a beautiful tropical island resort for a year as their marketing manager is her chance to start afresh, where nobody knows about her past. Romantic entanglements are definitely something she plans to avoid, but when she meets Cory, the resort’s too-handsome-to-be-real entertainment coordinator, sparks fly and Olivia finds herself swept right out of her Jimmy Choos and into Cory’s arms.
Caitlyn Lynch is an Australian mother of two who has always enjoyed reading and writing romantic fiction. Happily married to her very own tall, dark and handsome for 14 years and counting, she draws on a rich imagination to create new scenarios for her steamy contemporary romances.

What inspired you to choose your setting? Growing up, my family took yearly vacations to Sanibel Island, and it’s always held a place in my heart. It’s one of my favorite places in the world.
What’s your idea of the perfect tropical getaway? A white sand beach, a lounge chair, a cocktail in one hand and a great novel in the other.
What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with? Do I have to pick a celebrity? I’d most want to be stranded with my husband.
A college student convinces her overprotective father, who is a personal security specialist, to allow her to go on Spring Break, only to have her roommate go missing on the first day of their tropical island vacation.

Stacy-Deanne, author of Murder with a Kiss
What inspired you to choose your setting? I wanted a setting that was not only tropical but also mysterious. Jamaica has many hidden elements, and I was interested in learning more about it. I enjoy writing about unfamiliar places because it makes the story more exciting for me if I’m learning as I go along. Since Jamaica has this thrilling aura about it, I knew it would be a great setting for a steamy romantic suspense.
What’s your idea of the perfect tropical getaway? Jamaica. LOL! No surprise, huh? It’s funny because I have always wanted to go to England so never really envisioned a tropical vacation. Even though I’m not a beach person or swimmer, Jamaica definitely fascinates me. Activities are endless so you’d never be bored and there is something in Jamaica for everyone including the wonderful sights, annual festivals and food.
What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with? I’d say Jonathan Rhys Meyers. I’ve always liked him but since The Tudors, I’ve really been hooked!
When her twin brother Kirby is murdered, Kayla heads to Kingston, Jamaica to find out who would want her brother dead. Kayla teams up with Kirby’s best friend, Tate, who seems just as anxious for answers as she does. Kayla struggles with an attraction to the sexy tour guide, but loses the battle while Tate introduces her to the sensuous allure of Jamaica.

Holly Cortelyou, author of Two Reckless Hearts (A Barrett Ridge Novella)
What inspired you to choose your setting? I’ve always daydreamed of the Caribbean’s silky, warm waters and the magical steel drums dancing in the balmy night air. So it was fun to whip up a make-believe tropical island off the coast of St. Lucia for the luxurious resort in Two Reckless Hearts.
What’s your idea of the perfect tropical getaway? Beyond the “Must-Have’s” of my hunky partner, pink sand beaches, and an endless pina colada, I’d love to parasail, frolic with the dolphins, and zipline through the tropical forest with birds and monkeys screeching from the bamboo and mango trees…as long as those monkeys are far enough away they can’t jump me as I whiz by!
What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with? George Clooney, Chris Hemsworth and Jason Momoa would have to have a…shirtless battle to win my hand. Ah, but then Dwayne Johnson’s raunchy sense of humor might win the day. Come to think of it, making me choose is just down right mean!
Five sultry nights. Two reckless hearts. One family wedding. What could go wrong? Jami Barrett’s been jilted by her fiancé, and she must endure her sister’s crazy Caribbean wedding. Now, her arch rival, Beck Kavanagh, has crashed the party! With a make-or-break deal and her loyalty in the balance, Jami’s feeling the pressure…and the heat of her hidden desire. Will steamy island nights tempt enemies to become lovers?
