With her husband's dying breath, he promised to send Maddie an angle to heal her brokenheart. So every day in the year since Wayne's tragic boating accident, she's been watching for someone.
Rescued from a storm at sea, Chase can't remember who he is or where he came from--so he travels from port to port, looking for clues to his past. But his presence is shaking up the small Florida coastal town of Sugar Bay, and bizarre things are happening to Maddie and her family. Whoever this stranger is, he's working some serious miracles.
As Chase's shocking past and true identity begin to emerge, it leads Maddie to a disturbing mystery, unexpected danger--and the determination to fight for a love she know can only be Heaven-sent...

This book was such fun to write! Offbeat characters, family drama, self-discovery, mystery, and a touch of paranormal, this book has it all. Maddie took on a life of her own as I wrote her story, which is the ultimate achievement for a writer. If only they'd all cooperate so easily...
I've reissued nine of my out of print books as Kindle books. Look for Tina Wainscott in Kindle! I've always loved the combination of romance and suspense. Having just one or the other doesn't do it for me. Almost all of my twenty-eight books and five novellas twist both of those elements together, because nothing complements falling in love better than being hunted down, right?
My goal as a writer is to create books that make people feel good. My characters come with baggage, pasts hurts, and vulnerabilities. They go through hell, find love, and at the end, find peace in who they are and everything they've gone through. And isn't that what we all want?
My earlier books also twined in a dash of paranormal. Soul-changing second chances play the catalyst for UNTIL I DIE AGAIN, STRANGER IN THE MIRROR, and WOKE UP DEAD. The question of where our souls go when we're in a coma kicks off WHAT SHE DOESN'T KNOW. And psychic connections play into UNFORGIVABLE and TOUCHED BY LIGHTNING. I jumped into the paranormal with both feet in the Offspring series (Avon Books), an X-Files meets LOST mix with lots of action and romance, changing my name to Jaime Rush (jaimerush.com] to distinguish them. I'm thrilled to be starting a new series, The Hidden, at Grand Central Publishing, with Dragons, Angels, and magick.

I'll BE WATCHING YOU
UNTIL THE DAY YOU DIE
And a brand new series that kicks off with an e-short, WILD HEARTS, Jan 6, 2014, from Random House and WILD ON YOU Feb 3.
When five Navy SEALs take the fall for a covert mission gone wrong, this kick-butt brotherhood joins The Justiss Alliance, a private agency that exacts justice outside the law.
"Don't you see? It's perfect! You don't know who you are, you were found in the ocean as though dropped from the heavens, you believe in God, and Wayne sent you to me."
"I never said anything about being dropped from the heavens." And Chase wished he hadn't mentioned believing in God. Maddie had a way of making a man talk too much.
She still had that glowing look, and worse, she was grinning at him.
"I'm not an angel," he said.
"Maybe you don't know you're an angel."
He spread his arms out. "Do I look like an angel?"
Her gaze drifted over his bare chest and tight jeans. "Angels can look sexy-" Her eyes widened. "I didn't mean sexy like that kind of sexy. I meant...they can look like anyone. Even you."
He let out an exasperated sigh, despite the compliment. Before he could think twice about it, he did something he hoped would dispel the notion for good. He kissed her.
It wasn't dramatic, no tongues were involved, but he ran his mouth over hers for a long minute. Her surprised squeak echoed in his head, but he was mostly focused on the way her mouth felt beneath his. She was incredibly soft and tasted sweet.
Her hands had pushed against his shoulders when he'd taken her by surprise, and then stilled against him. Now she pushed again and backed away, her eyes wide. "Wha...how...you're not supposed to do that! You're supposed to listen to me, tell me everything's going to be all right, and heal my broken heart."
"If I were an angel, I wouldn't want to kiss you."
"And you-" She tilted her head. "You wanted to kiss me?"
"Against my better judgment. I'm a man, Maddie. Nothing more, nothing less."
