Why the author wrote this book:
This is the first of a three part series set in St. Augustine, FL. I had decided to use three women who's names reflected their personality and struggles. Mercy (Winning the Captain's Heart) is the first of these gals. ST. Augustine is only an hour and half drive from my home and I love the historic nature of the town as it is the oldest city in the United States.
