Meet Me At Sunrise by Lucinda Whitney


Finding love in eight days was not on the itinerary...
Between a bad breakup and a rocky relationship with her overbearing father, twenty-three-year-old Vanessa Clark has a history of being disappointed by the men in her life. So when her long-lost grandfather reenters the scene and persuades her to tour northern Portugal on one of his cruise ships, Vanessa boards the vessel looking for answers about her estranged family, not looking for love.
Captain Matias Romano has enough to worry about without having to babysit his boss's spoiled American granddaughter, no matter how good-looking she is. First the issue with the refrigerators, and now the ship's computers and malfunctioning-he'll be relieved when this trip is over and he can get back to business as usual.
But as Matias plays tour guide on Vanessa's excursions and they work together to investigate a series of suspicious accidents aboard, they both realize there's more to the other than first impressions. Can Vanessa work through her complicated past to make room for Matias in her future, or will they pass like ships in the night?


This is the second book in the Destined For Love Series and I am loving these books! This was set in Portugal and I would love to go back someday and visit the places in this book. Romance, Cruise Ship, and Portugal... it was pretty Dreamy! I liked this book a lot not only was it full of amazing chemistry between the 2 main characters but it was suspenseful as well. Matias is the Captain of a river cruise ship that travels in Portugal to some beautiful places. He's been the Captain for years and the owner of the company sent his granddaughter Vanessa on this trip so she could experience the amazing river cruise. The two meet and first impressions weren't so great. As the story goes on and they get to know each other they don't think they should get involved for various reasons but they couldn't deny the connection they felt. While on the 8 day cruise many things are happening on the cruise that are very unusual to Matias and he can't figure out what is going on. He feels like he is being sabotaged.  I loved their sweet romance, loved the storyline, loved that they were on a cruise ship and loved Portugal!
This book is not only in the Destined For Love series but Lucinda Whitney is also writing a Romano Family series and this is the second book. I am excited to read more in this series and hope that we will hear more of Matias and Vanessa's story and the suspects on the ship.

Stars: 4.5


  1. Thank you, Brianne!
    And yes, book 3 in the Romano Family series, LOVE ME AT SUNSET, is Afonso's story and will have the mystery solved. Plus, Matias and Vanessa might even make an appearance. :)
