About the book:
The South Winds by Allison Mullinax
Contemporary Romance Fiery Seas Everlasting
August 7, 2018
Cassie Ray, manager of her family’s successful oyster house, has never asked for much out of life. The sun, surf, and sand are her companions. The regulars and tourists that flock to The Slippery Oyster are her livelihood. But when the Atlantic kicks up a hurricane, sending waves of black water threatening the coast, Cassie quickly learns that the south winds have blown in a lot more than debris and saltwater.
Dean Alexander left Turquoise Isle eight years ago and never looked back. With his sister’s wedding approaching, and a hurricane churning in the Gulf, Dean returns home, where he’s welcomed with a rip tide of memories determined to pull him under.
Will Cassie and Dean make it through the crashing waves of the past? Will they get a second chance before it’s too late or will the storm ahead be too much for them to handle?
About the author:

I’ve read everything that Allison Mullinax has put out through Fiery Seas. This woman totally rocks the emotional gut wrench. Toss her aptitude for plot twists and sucking the reader in deep on top of my weakness for a second-chance romance into the bargain, and you have The South Winds.
Dean and Cassie have been avoiding each other and their painful past for eight years; but Dean’s sister is getting married, and a series of not-quite coincidences throws Dean into Cassie’s path, with a hurricane looming off the coast of their little hometown.
Between Dean’s well-meaning mother and younger sister, and Cassie’s hunky, handy, good-looking and male best friend (whom Dean mistakes for Cassie’s boyfriend before he is bluntly informed is married…and gay), the broken couple doesn’t stand a chance of staying away from each other or the painful conversations they’ve been avoiding.
The South Winds is another quick read from Ms. Mullinax. She deftly captures life in a small tourist town, and leads her reader down a lovely, romantic plot path, only to twist things just enough at the right moment. Fans of the second chance romance, here’s your next weekend read.
