The Boat Builder's Bed

Book 1, The Wellington Series - Wicked in Wellington

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A single mom and a billionaire. A beautiful house that needs her touch, and a beautiful man who needs her love even more.
Superyacht tycoon Rafe Severino wants a woman. Desperately. Someone who can decorate his lonely new mansion with its million-dollar views over Wellington harbor and return his life to normality. Rafe yearns to marry again and start a better family than the one he came from. He gets more than he bargains for with Sophie Calhoun.

Newly established decorator Sophie seeks to make her mark on the city, but to concentrate on her design studio she has been parted from her adored daughter for the last several years. When Rafe confesses the ugly truth of his upbringing, Sophie sees disaster ahead. Rafe was also hidden away, and it tore him apart. Will he ever forgive Sophie if he discovers she’s done the same?
A heart-warming story of family, love, loss, and dangerous currents.

Warning: contains one determined golden-skinned man who knows his way around boats, bodies and bed-sheets.

THE BOAT BUILDER’S BED is the first book in The Wellington Series.

Customer Reviews

Needed a little more

Feel like it could have been longer or maybe a second book otherwise easy to read and enjoyed it!

The boat builders bed

Cute story!

Good read

Definitely one of the better books, but a tad bit too long and drawn out. Nice characters otherwise.
