Description

A man running from his past. A woman facing a new future. A voyage neither will forget.

Tragic decisions changed DR’s life forever. His dad was supposed to protect him, keeping him from harm. But hidden family secrets chased DR away instead, and twenty years later the secret still exists.

Now DR focuses on three things: getting away from the do-gooders, starting his own boutique cruise, and losing the taunting voice in his head. And after arriving in Marsala everything is almost perfect, as if a divine hand was helping, but that couldn’t be.

Soon twelve passengers and crew set sail on a thrilling adventure with Steven (DR) Ray, now a world famous archaeologist and confident captain of his own boutique cruise. But their yacht is randomly marked entering the Suez Canal leaving the Mediterranean by a terrorist organization. After reaching Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, pay-for-play terrorists set the plan in motion. And failure isn’t a choice.

Not knowing they've sailed into a deadly game of political cat-and-mouse, DR and a woman passenger with her own secrets battle their demons, and soon begin enduring endless sleepless nights of frightening dreams. Dreams that point to a dangerous destiny, nurturing a secret romance that quickly buds, against cruise rules.

As pirates close in ready to claim their prize DR must confront his past and embrace his destiny before they fight for their lives, or else they will all go down with the ship.

The Obsessed Intentions series is a page turner from debut novelist Lee Wimmer in this nonstop thriller with characters who will steal your heart.

Advance Praise

I Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book , I could not put it down. I felt like I was on the journey with all the passengers , the views and sights they had seen. (which were well described in detail ) ) The writer knew how to keep you curios and excited throughout the book . Well written and I would Definitely Recommend reading this one . Can’t wait for the sequel to come out. (I received a free ARC of Dr. Steven Ray and the Dreamwalkers for an honest review. First edition of No Romancing the Passengers).

Hightower Publications and Netgalley sent me a copy of No Romancing the Passengers for review:


A man who is running away from his past. A woman facing a new chapter in her life. There will be no forgetting this voyage.


An archaeologist embarks on a voyage with twelve passengers that changes their destiny forever in a world of secrets and betrayal. Dr. Steven Ray is a confident owner/captain of his own boutique cruise line, but underneath the façade lies an unending nightmare that will test the courage that helped him turn away from religion.


An unknown enemy hunts DR and a passenger with a past of her own across the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean seeking to sink the yacht and kill its passengers.


Does DR have what it takes to let go of the past and embrace his destiny-including breaking his own rule about romance-or will they all go down with the ship?


I give No Romancing the Passengers five out of five stars!


Happy Reading!

This was a great start to the Obsessed Intentions series, it had everything that I was hoping for from this type of book. The characters were wonderfully written, it does everything that I wanted from the description. I enjoyed how good the story was and glad I was able to read this.

An emotional rollercoaster of a story that has left me waiting for the sequel to hear what happens to all the characters. Its depth was amazing, with such a reminder that God speaks clearly, even to unbelievers, showing them His desire to love them.

Excellent blend of action, romance, and adventure as avowed atheist DR takes a shakedowns cruise of his super yacht with a special group of guests. Prophetic dreams, special interactions with passengers and crew, and attacks by pirates all are expertly woven together to test DR’s beliefs

I don't think I was the right reader for this book, but it was a well-written romance story with a unique and interesting plot. The characters were well-developed and likable.

A famous archaeologist named Dr. Steven Ray embarks on a voyage with twelve passengers that will forever change their destiny. The journey takes place in a world filled with secrets and betrayal. Although on the surface, DR Ray appears to be an ultra-confident man, the truth is that he is running from his past and has turned away from the faith due to an unending nightmare. Along with him on this voyage is a woman who is facing a new future. The voyage is unforgettable and will leave a lasting impact on all those involved.

Thank you, NetGalley and Publisher Hightower Publications for providing me with an eARC.

This is the first book by Lee Wimmer that I have read, it definitely won't be the last!
There is no shortage of drama, suspense, adventures, romance, stress and mixed feelings, breakthroughs and faith. DR's life sounds like a dream to us, to see and explore all this stunning locations! Definitely recommend this book!

I enjoyed the mystery and suspense in this book. I also enjoyed the idea behind the cruise and how the passengers all enjoyed each other. The stuff about dream walking was different for me and gave me something to think about. There is another book after this one so everything is not tied up neatly at the end. I enjoyed the characters Miguel, Mike and Willie.



Thanks so much to netgalley and the publisher for the arc. The opinions are my own.

This was a thrilling read. I really enjoyed the story. I loved the way the author demonstrated that God can use even the worst parts of our lives for something wonderful and good. I'm looking forward to reading what books follow this one.

An elusive enemy is hunting the yacht Disillusioned Illusion but the DI manages to escape until the inevitable confrontation happens.

It is when past, present and future meld into one and DR needs to make life-changing decisions.

An excellent read. Enjoy!
