Lynn Reilly has landed her dream job as a schoolteacher on beautiful Treasure Island.She should be happy as a clam, but someone is keeping her from enjoying her new life. Her nutty aunt Delphine is determined to set her up with her very eligible (and very cute) neighbor, Reverend Jack Marks. The only problem is…Delphine is a ghost.A meddling aunt is one thing.

But with all Delphine's outrageous haunting high jinks, it looks as if Lynn and Mark won't stand a ghost of a chance!
When Serena Gregory's clothing-optional Caribbean cruise fell through at the last minute, the thrill-seeking dermatologist decided that helping Darius Maxwell, her mysterious new neighbor–who might or might not be a crown prince–commit a felony would be a worthwhile alternative.Yes, it would involve clothes–for the most part–but the risk of skin cancer would be drastically reduced. Not to mention she'd be helping to secure the future of an entire European country…that she'd never even heard of.That's how Serena wound up over her head in trouble when she should have been next to naked in paradise–and risking her career and cold, hard jail time for a man she'd only just met!
Her plan? Ferry a client's plane to Aruba, play a little poker, get some sun…Not in her plan? An emergency landing on a volcanic island full of lunatics, an approaching hurricane, a dashingly annoying airstrip owner named Buck Shanahan (who seems as fond of poker as she is) and a lonely, lovesick alligator called Buster…Sassy redheaded pilot Hannah Lamont has no time for back-island bumpkins like Buck and his buddies–until the hurricane bears down, grounding her on tiny Treasure Island. Treasure, ha! Aside from a couple of ratty tiki huts, all this flyspeck can boast is a casino–and it's right in the path of the storm. But as Hannah throws her chips in with Buck and the islanders to save the place, the stakes may be higher than she dreamed…and winning brings rewards she never expected.
