SCANDALOUS SECRETS LEAD TO DEADLY DESIRE . . .
Ten years ago, Paige Walker left her beloved home of Windfall Island to become an actress in Hollywood. Now she's coming back a star, honored with awards and beset by scandal. Escaping from a tabloid frenzy of gossip and lies, Paige wants nothing more than to surround herself with old friends. She never expected to meet an infuriating-and sexy-stranger . . . or to find herself in true danger.
Brilliant attorney Alec Barclay came to Windfall to look for the kidnapped, long-lost heir to the Stanhope family fortune. What he finds is the most beautiful and enigmatic woman he has ever known. If his suspicions are correct, she's the heir he's been looking for . . . and the target of a deadly conspiracy. Drawn together by desire-but haunted by secrets of the past-Alec and Paige try to unlock a mystery as dangerous as it is irresistible. But every passion has a price . . .
About the Author
Anna Sullivan was born and raised in southeastern Michigan, the seventh of nine children, whose claim to fame was reading five books a week in grade school. Needless to say, her obsession with the written word only grew from there-despite a short, and misguided, foray into the world of computer science (the "sensible" job path). She still lives in Michigan, with her husband, three children and two dogs whose life of leisure she envies but would never be able to pull off.

Awesome book and great end of the trilogy. I loved the characters, the interactions, the mystery. I hope to see more by this author.
This is the third (and I believe final) book in the Windfall Island Series. The story started with Temptation Bay, grew with Hideaway Cove, wrapped up nicely and by the end of the book, everything felt finished and complete. This is the story of Paige Walker, whom we met in Hideaway Cove. Alec Barclay, also introduced in book 2 returns to the island to help figure out the mystery of the Stanhope heir. While Paige came off a bit snooty and primadonna in the previous book, here is where we really get to know her and understand the woman she is under the Hollywood hype. There were several twists and turns that were nicely sprung. The author did an excellent job with misdirection and red herrings. There were several that I never saw coming. If you like a nice mystery with your romance this series would be a great read. I gave it 4 stars.
Windfall Island seems to get more and more dangerous with secrets lurking in the dark, as evil and greed want to get its hands on them. The third book in Anna Sullivan’s Windfall Series, “Secret Harbor” may very well bring into centuries old secret that can rock the town and change the lives of Paige Walker and her friends. For the uninitiated readers, though the basic premise of finding the missing Eugenia Stanhope continues, each book in the series is a standalone with no cliffhangers, but you cannot resist going back to reading the other books in the series filled with thrills, danger and passion. Paige Walker comes back home to Windfall to recover from a scandal that had rocked her Hollywood career and with her having no part in it, she wants to fall back and think about her future. She comes back to the sanctuary of her childhood home and best friends giving her unconditional support and love. All, except the rich, handsome and arrogant attorney Alec Barclay. Alec Barclay is attracted to Paige at a basic level and he is not a happy camper with his feelings for her all over the place. He becomes judgmental, arrogant and hurtful before he realizes to make amends to Paige. Drawn into the search for the elusive Eugenia Stanhope, he ends up staying with Paige to protect her from danger. As the search continues with the possibility that Paige may be the missing Eugenia, and with the flames of danger surrounding them, Alec and Paige become victims to the desire and passion that fans their hearts. But, before they can confess their love for each other, both have a lot of pain and insecurities to overcome. Anna Sullivan does a fabulous job with Paige and Alec, two people meant to be together, but fighting every step of the way. The dialogue between them is witty, yet hurtful. Alec can be a jerk, but then he tames into a guy so in love with Paige he’s willing to accept his mistakes and grovel at her feet. And Paige with her heart so simple and kind, and a victim of Hollywood gossip, makes your heart ache for her as she gets judged by people especially Alec. “Secret Harbor” takes you on a ride of passion and love, greed and evil, family and support in the beautiful Windfall Island and will the elusive Eugenia Stanhope come into light is for the readers to find out.
