Washed up on the rocks of Harpoon Bay with no memory, confused and terrified Rocky Smith finds passionate love with nurse Penny Reynolds. He finds he has masterful business skills and brings the town out of recession to the relief of the population.

Things are looking good until he discovers he is wanted for armed robbery and murder. Now he needs to find the truth or lose his newfound life.

Things become more involved when he discovers a rich twin brother with a beautiful wife and a mobster who wants to kill him to get back the one million dollars stolen.

With Penny by his side he faces the awful truth of his previous life and fights to stay alive.

EXCERPT

He was past the point of exhaustion.

How long had it been? Two hours. Three. He'd lost track of time.

The first hour had been the worst as he'd tried to contain his panic. Now he was freezing cold and no end in sight to his ordeal. Initially the water had been fairly calm, but the wind had started to gust and create white caps on the waves. There was still no moon, and the inky blackness held him in its grasp, not affording him any sense of direction. If it hadn't been for the piece of driftwood he'd grabbed as it had floated past in that first half hour of desperation, he would have drowned. The odds were incredible that he'd been in the right place at the right time. That piece of timber, floating just below the surface, had enabled him to regain some of his strength.

He'd been able to abandon his shoes and heavy sweater. Getting rid of his trousers had crossed his mind, but the thought of a shark eyeing his white legs made him reconsider that idea. Now all that seemed so futile because it looked as though his drowning was inevitable once hypothermia set in.

There had been a gunshot just as he'd thrown himself off the launch. The bullet had missed its target, so he'd dived deeply and come up on the other side of the boat. Someone had called for a light, then let forth with a tirade of foul language. Even on the opposite side of the boat, he had been able to see the reflection as the powerful beam had scanned the calm waters of the Pacific Ocean, searching for his bobbing head. When the light had flashed in his direction, he'd dived beneath the surface again, holding his breath until his lungs almost burst.

When he'd finally surfaced, they were cursing loudly, arguing whether or not to stick around until daylight or head back to shore. Then he'd heard the engine start and felt the backwash as the powerful boat had sped away at full throttle.

His mind numbed, the cold now working its way through his body. Active thoughts swept through his head. Afraid his willpower would give up and he'd slip beneath the waves, he forced himself to think about the shock and betrayal that had put him in this position.

Where the hell was the shore? There weren't any stars showing to help him fix a point. He was alone to face a watery death.

Now totally exhausted and still clinging to his piece of driftwood, the coldness crept up his body.

At the first streaks of light of the coming dawn, he vaguely noticed the sharp cry of the seagulls overhead and in his dulled senses he was aware of the noise of the wind and waves. Nothing made much sense, only the hope that he would survive. His fingers closed tightly around his slender support, unwilling to let it go. The power of the waves was too strong for him to fight, the water lifted and dashed his body forward at tremendous speed and he was thrown from the timber, tumbling over and over in the white water. His body again lifted and then dashed onto the edge of the rocky outcrop of the shore. The crashing wave produced a white bubble and froth of water gushing over rocks and swirling in eddies that mingled with tangled kelp. His head smashed against the hard surface and mercifully he succumbed to the peace and blackness of unconsciousness.
