Because of You (Book One) - Ten years ago, Piper Townsend fell to her death from the top of a fraternity house, and no one on Drake Isle has ever been the same. Blake Carter's fraternity was scandalized. Misterion College closed down. And Blake's girlfriend Emmy fled the island after her best friend died and never looked behind her.

Now Blake's the CEO of a multi-million dollar tech firm looking to relocate to the island. Emmy owns a yoga studio in the building he wants to buy. They haven't spoken in ten years. They're on opposite sides of the bargaining table. But old flames die hard, and sometimes soulmates can set the world on fire all over again…

Finding You (Book Two) - Lillian Santini came to Drake Isle pregnant, broke, and alone.Two decades later she owns a renowned beauty salon and has raised her twins to adulthood. Fiercely independent, she has no interest in settling down. Then she meets Trey.

Trey lives a jet-set life on the mainland, a billionaire who's hidden a shockingly abusive childhood from the world. His best friend, the only person who knew his secrets, died in a tragic accident twelve years earlier. Lil and Trey’s attraction is instant. Their desire is powerful. But can two people from different worlds find love on Drake Isle, or will past secrets tear them apart?

Bonus Story! Deck the Isle is a sweet Christmas story that takes place between Books 1 and 2 and highlights the island decked out at holiday time (along with a few more secrets between characters…)

If you like small town island romance with a hint of mystery, then you’ll love this introduction to the Drake Isle series. Jump in and discover the magic of the island!

Welcome to Drake Isle by A. Boniface; published by DFM Publishing/BookBuzz, contains the first two books in this series, and a bonus short story.
Because of You is Blake and Emerson's second chance story.
They were college sweethearts, but they drifted apart. Now, years later their paths are crossing again. Emerson, the small business owner and Blake the CEO big shot, bad wolf. And they drive each other up the wall. A great read, suspenseful from start til the last page, 5 stars.

Finding You is Lillian and Trey's story. Both are already through a lot. The single mom of twins and the sucessful businessman. This is the next beautiful story set on Drake Island. Can't wait for the next one.

Deck the Isle is a bonus read, a christmas story. Emmy and Blake, an entertaining read, a short story that wanted me to know more about the two characters.

Because of You: After the death of her best friend, Piper Townsend, and the end of her relationship with Blake Carter, Emmy Doyle left Drake Isle. Years later she returned to the Isle and opened her yoga studio. The death of her mother and a failed relationship has left her in a fragile financial situation; will she lose her business too? Blake returns to the Isle as CEO of Eastefire, his company that will be handling the technology for the reopening of Misterion. Knowing that she is in financial trouble, his father hopes to purchase the building housing Emmy’s studio. Blake is still in love with Emmy and learns that his father’s deceit had helped end their relationship. A beautiful story of enduring love and second chances.
Finding You: Lillian Santini has lived on Drake Island for twenty years. Arriving when she was six months pregnant and desperate, she found good friends and a good life. She raised her twins, Sarah and Matt, while opening a successful business. When she meets Trey Jeffries, her feelings for him are unexpected. He is somewhat younger than her, but he pursues her in a slow and gentle way. Trey knew from the first time he saw Lillian that she could be the one. He had never wanted commitment, but now his thoughts go to Lillian and a life with her. A beautiful and sensual story of a younger man and an older woman…a woman who never expected what life still had in store for her. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)

Two charming, heart-warming and heart-breaking romance tales together in one big book. There is also a mystery that is a cliff hanger. I am eager to read more about the people of Drake Isle. Thanks to the publisher for providing a copy via NetGalley.
