This is where the heroine, Jessica Morris first sees the island paradise of the enigmatic and elusive Kaine Deville...
Immediately wide-awake again, Jessica squinted, shielding her eyes from the sun with the palm of her hand. A speck of lush vegetation lay on the horizon, gradually filling her vision as the helicopter drew closer. They approached from the east, and she felt like a passenger on a roller-coaster ride as the chopper swept incredibly low over the rocky buttresses shielding the island from the all-powerful Atlantic Ocean. Regaining her composure, she marveled at the sheer picturesque beauty before her. Jared was obviously a professional, and he piloted the helicopter with immense skill, skimming low over banana plantations and fabulous tropical plants, which she’d never seen before. On the western side of the island, white sandy beaches joined the warm shallow waters of the much calmer Caribbean Sea.
“Wow. The island is simply stunning, and larger than I’d imagined.”
The pilot smiled. “Yeah, it is kinda impressive. Three miles by two. Six square miles in total.”
As they hovered low over the helipad, Jessica spotted several pristine white villas dotted along the western shoreline, while a huge imposing house sat all alone on a rocky outcrop, surrounded by gently swaying palm trees. She guessed this was where Kaine Deville lived.
Jessica turned to Jared. “Oh, this is so beautiful. It must cost a fortune to holiday here.”
He smiled knowingly. “Deville’s Island is by invitation only, ma’am. Everyone who visits here is a personal guest of Mr. Deville.”
