A self-made woman with a sweet, successful life discovers that even the best-laid plans are no match for unexpected passion in this brand-new series from award-winning author Laura Moore.

As the responsible daughter of an irresponsible socialite, Dakota Hale has plenty of practice catering to the whims of the rich and spoiled - and she's turned that experience into a thriving concierge business serving the needs of the Hamptons' wealthy elite. But anytime the drama on land gets too outrageous, Dakota finds calm surfing the Atlantic waves. But when sexy mogul Max Carr hires her, it rocks her balance in a big way.

Max works hard, but he's never had to put any effort into winning over a woman - until now. With her stunning beauty and keen intelligence, Dakota is worth the effort. But it's plain she has no interest in a casual fling, and that's all Max, with his grief-stricken heart, can offer. But one fraught night changes everything, with consequences neither Dakota nor Max anticipated. Now they must navigate the rough waters of society gossip and devastating secrets that threaten their fragile relationship. If they can trust in the strength of their growing feelings, they'll find that the dreams they've been chasing are close enough to embrace . . . together.
