About The Book

The decadent chic of Bahamian high life collides with bittersweet romance in this poignant and powerful novel that explores the redemptive power of love. Chris Angostura, the scion of a prominent family, frolics away his days and nights drinking and clubhopping in the Bahamas, where sex and drugs are his for the taking. It is not until he meets Robin, a beautiful and exciting artist, that he begins to face his past in order to discover the true beauty behind the seductive façade of paradise.
