The sole survivor of a plane crash, Megan is alone on a deserted island in the Bahamas until she finds a nearly-drowned man washed up on shore. Another survivor, this time from a boat wreck. With only meager survival skills between them, will they survive and can they find love?

Never having read a survivor story before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Megan is all alone on an island after her ordeal of surviving a plane crash when she spots what she assumes to be another dead body from the crash washes up. Surprised to find it is a male Aussie who has been through his own ordeal to survive, they learn to depend upon each other for survival. Megan finds herself attracted to the weather worn surfer but is in constant battle with herself over the prospect her cheating husband could still be alive. Their journey to trust each other and their instincts eventually leads them to exploring their carnal needs.

Beware there are several Aussie phrases and words that at times make for a read that you really need to focus to make sure you are understanding the context of the story. This story is definitely a complicated one due to the setting and the plot…there are no amenities that we are accustomed to so they have to make do with whatever washes up as well as what they discover. Kudos to Ms. Seagraves for tackling a tough topic right off the bat with her debut novel. I applaud her complex feminine character who so desperately tries to stay true to what society would expect out of her. The ending was a little unbelievable for me, but after digesting this book for several weeks, I realize how they might choose the choice that they made.

Windswept Shores sound like an interesting and complex plot. The Aussie slang should make it even more realistic. Will have to pick up a copy as soon as I can! :)
