About this ebook

Love Page Turning Romance? Books you can share with friends and family? Swoon-worthy Navy heroes and the women they can't resist? Then sit back, kick off your shoes and prepare to fall in love with the Aloha Romance Series from USA TODAY Bestselling Author Chris Keniston.

Owner of the Big Island Dive shop, former Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal tech Billy Everrett is going through the motions of living. Love, marriage and children are the last thing on his mind when a beautiful friend falls into his arms.

Angela Carson's life is not unfolding according to plan. She's twelve years behind the curve in her search for love, marriage and babies. With her biological clock raising its ugly head, she never expects to meet Mr. Right in time.

Is a friend in need enough to reveal the best things in life don't need a plan?

The second book in the series. It's filled with finding your passion agaon, letting go of those things that hold us back while Billy and Angela get to know one another better and start to realise that they mean more to one another. Light and easy to read with enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages and to not let it be to cliché until you have finished the book.

I really enjoyed reading 😊 Aloha Texas. Three weeks in Hawaii (to visit all the islands) is my dream vacation! The story was quite intriguing and I found it very difficult to put it down to do my job when I took it to read on my breaks! I also have a huge love for the United States Military (all branches) & our Soldiers! You had great characters that I wish I could have in my life as my friends! Last but not least; As a Christian woman, I truly enjoy reading clean storylines. Thank you & I look forward to reading the rest of this amazing series! Btw, I'm still single & wish I could be found by a retired Navy, Army, Green Beret, Marine or Air Force Pilot! (I love them all, but I only need one)!

I rarely enjoy a free first in series book enough to pay for more of the series. This time I'm falling for the ploy. Light read. No heavy drama and angst. Good character and plot development.

About the author

USA TODAY Bestselling author Chris Keniston's love of a good story and frustration with the end of a well known author's romance best seller, drove her to pen her own works of romance and fiction.
Currently working on the contemporary romance series, Farraday Country, Chris brings stories of falling in love, matchmaking, Texas Cowboys, family values, and all around entertaining shenanigans that fans have grown to love and expect from her bestselling books.

In her Aloha Series, Chris tips her hat to the military writing poignant and sometimes funny stories of life with former military heroes. Using popular themes of small towns and sandy beaches blended with stories of the single dad, survivors guilt, an accidental wedding and so more continues to make the Aloha Series a reader's choice.

Readers won't want to miss Chris' romantic women's fiction novels that include a variety of themes from international settings dealing with wealthy millionaires, family feuds and tropical beaches, to the relationships between family and friends in small town Texas, and to sisterhood and friendship in the award winning novel The Champagne Sisterhood.

A native New Yorker, Chris Keniston was on her way to Australia when she fell in love with North Texas. Little did she know the balmy seventy degree October days would turn into fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk heat in August!

Author of more than a dozen contemporary novels, including a finalist for the prestigious Golden Heart Award, Chris lives in North Texas with her husband, two human children, and two canine children. Though she loves her puppies equally, she admits being especially attached to her German Shepherd rescue named Gunny. After all, even dogs deserve a happily ever after.
