Flipper and Tara are on opposing sides of the dolphin captivity controversy. They just can’t seem to fight the growing attraction between them. Shore to please follows our favorites from the aquarium while they battle threats from extremists. Tensions rise and loyalties are tested. Full of action, suspense, mystery and passion.



Tara Langley is an animal rights activist protesting against Gulf Shore Aquarium keeping dolphins in captivity. Paul “Flipper” O’Riley is the aquarium’s head dolphin trainer. Fire and gasoline, right? So why are they both itching to light the match? Annette Mardis presents Shore To Please, the next chapter in her wonderfully entertaining romance series, Gulf Shore.

Tara Langley thought she’d found the love of her life, but he betrayed her with another woman. So she buried herself in her mission: convincing Gulf Shore Aquarium that dolphins and whales belong in the wild, not in artificial pools.

If Tara had her way, Paul “Flipper” O’Riley would lose the job he loves. Flipper is the head dolphin trainer, and the aquarium’s dolphins are his babies. While he’s open to having a real family one day, the last person he would choose to be his wife and the mother of his children would be Tara.

These two should be sworn enemies, after all. He certainly swears at the sight of her. And his surfer-dude looks and lover-boy reputation aren’t exactly what Ms. Prim and Tidy had in mind when she pictured her ideal man.

But in the age-old way of opposites attracting, Tara and Flipper find themselves inexplicably drawn to each other. There’s no possible way a relationship between them could work, right?

The reformed mean girl meets her prince, Cosby. Both are sarcastic and blunt. They make the perfect pair. Monica and Cosby fight through the their own insecurities and the pressures around them to find their happiness. I enjoyed the glimpses into other couples as well. A great addition to the series. Can’t wait to continue the journey.


Welcome back to Gulf Shore, where love is in the air…or is it? Take one marine biologist with a few secrets in her past, the hot new owner of a local business, and a sexy billionaire with an obsession, and discover whether redemption is possible for those who believe in the power of love. Annette Mardis has done it again, passion, suspense, and a romance as hot as the afternoon sun on a sandy beach in Book 2 of her contemporary Gulf Shore series, Shore Feels Right.

Once a pariah among her coworkers, marine biologist Monica Sims has spent months reinventing herself as she seeks redemption. A history of failed relationships leaves her leery of romantic involvement until she meets Cosby Williams, the new co-owner of Nauti-Toys watercraft rentals.

As things heat up between them, Gulf Shore Aquarium responds to the stranding of a group of pilot whales. When a billionaire bachelor lends his private plane to the rescue effort, Monica catches his eye—and an obsession is born.

How will she cope with the unwanted attention? And will her past sins come back to doom her newfound happiness with Cosby?
