never emptier. I was a stay-at-home mom with a sugar daddy who had no time to
pass the sugar or be a daddy. I asked for a divorce and he let me go, just like
mending my broken heart and finding myself while being a strong role model for
our girls. But when my mom gets sick, I need help, and he’s there like a
superhero in a tailored suit. And when my mom recovers, he’s still there, doing
grocery runs and braiding our girls’ hair.

following suit, doing everything my dad thinks I should. I’m my own woman, and
I know just how I’m going to prove it. I went through six years of college to
earn my master’s in business to please him, while I wanted a degree in interior
design, so I worked my tush off and received my bachelor’s in that too. Now
that I’m twenty-four, I’m going to do a one-eighty in my life and take a job I
never saw myself doing, just to please me. It really can’t be too hard to serve
food to people, make beds, and use a feather duster…can it? I’ll be sailing

the easiest one I’ve ever had to make. After four years in college taking
accounting classes, I went after my true dream…a captain’s license. I always
knew I’d follow in my father’s footsteps; I just didn’t think it’d be this

my father founded and drive a million-dollar yacht every day. I pick and choose
who lies in my bed, and I’ve never allowed anyone there for more than a night
or two. No one has ever kept my attention any longer than that. Then I look
down to see the long legs of a cabin stewardess walking toward my boat and I
meet Maci Foster.
