The Great Escape (Paperback)
Lucy Jorik is a champ at never embarrassing her familynot surprising since her mother is one of the most famous women in the world. But now Lucy has done just that. And on her wedding day, no less.
Instead of saying "I do," Lucy flees and hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle plastered with offensive bumper stickers. She's flying into the unknown with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger.
While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen upand fast.
Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house. Here, she hopes to find a new direction . . . and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her. She'll also encounter a beautiful, troubled beekeeper; a frightened young boy; a modern-day evil queen; and a passion that could change her life forever.
