Rachel Rager's book "By Love or By Sea"

Alice Lind Frank never forgot the boy she loved when she was just six years old, even after he was lost at sea. Now a young woman, Alice has found happiness in living and working with her grandparents, and in the affections of Clarence Hielott, the wealthy shipyard owner who intends to make Alice his bride.

When a ragged sailor appears in town, Alice is reminded of the young boy who once held her heart. Upon learning that the sailor is in fact her childhood love, Caleb, she finds herself falling for him again.

But Clarence refuses to let this ghost from the past destroy his plans for the future. He exposes the secrets of Caleb’s past, and Alice realizes that the boy she once knew is now a man with a dark history. Soon Caleb and Clarence are locked in a fierce competition for Alice’s heart.

Rachel Rager is a new writer who states she was a hopeless romantic from the start. And she states: "When I sit down to read a book and relax, I want to be swept away; I want to be entertained; I want to forget about the trouble in my own life and enjoy a little romance. That is what you will find here. Romance. Good, clean wholesome ROMANCE!"

You can read an excerpt of her book at her website, or check out her blog. If I can find her book trailer again (what happened to that link?) I'll post that as well.

If you post a comment on my blog (please, you'll have to come to the actual blog for this one, Facebook posts won't count) Rachel will enter you to win a copy of her book. So post away!

By Love or By Sea is available at, Barnes and Noble, and many other place LDS books are sold (even though there's no LDS content, it's just clean fiction.)

I like the suspense of the fact that Alice has two men going after and wanting to marry her. It sounds like an amazing story.
