Silver Lining: A Vacation Romance by Chassilyn Hamilton
After a recent breakup, Camryn Southern is coerced into attending a singles’ cruise to shake back and dive back into the dating pool. She expected nothing more from the trip than relaxing in the crystal blue, wide-open ocean.
A brief encounter with Sylvester Cameron, her much older and still very handsome former professor who she had a crush on years ago, shows Camryn that he sees her for the thirty-year-old woman she is now, and not the barely-legal adult he taught years before, giving her the impression that her fantasies could turn into a reality.
Choosing to succumb to their mutual attraction, the two navigate through uncharted waters while sailing the ocean. Can they overcome the obstacles standing in their way of making things official on land? Or will they decide their romance is best left at sea?
