About Stranger on the Island by Jonathan Ross
Ex-Marine Richard Drake treasures his laid-back life on St. Mark, smallest of the US Virgin Islands. To make ends meet, he works as a charter boat captain and provides security for a high-profile client. To nourish his soul, he spends lots of time with enchanting Sophie Cooper. Once, when she sought safe haven, Richard saved her life. Then she stole his heart. Now they fill each other’s lives, hand in hand by day and even closer during tropical nights.
But Sophie has a problem. Her morning trek through the tranquil beauty of St. Mark’s rainforest turned horribly wrong when a knife-wielding stranger attacked her. Richard vows to find the scoundrel and deliver him to justice.
Unfortunately, Richard’s odds of success appear slim. Sure, he was Force Recon, but that was in arid Afghan mountains, not a claustrophobic rainforest. How to find his way in such an environment, much less locate and track the stranger, is a conundrum. Worse, the attacker demonstrates combat skills that point to special operations training, making him a lethal foe. Worst of all, to search for the intruder is to leave Sophie unguarded.

Jonathan Ross spent his boyhood summers in the countryside of St. Thomas, when the island residents lived much like folks on St. Mark – without electricity, catching rain for their water, and relying on Tortola sloops to ferry people, livestock, and small cars from island to island. He saw charcoal being made the old way, climbed rocks along the rough coast, stepped on sea urchins, and watched shooting stars on dark Caribbean nights. Years later, after service in the Navy, he laid his mother to rest in the Caribbean Sea outside of St. Thomas Harbor.
