From Kona with Love

Though connected, each installment can be read as a standalone.

“Experience the spiritual and physical beauty of the enchanted Hawaiian Islands in this modern-day Romeo and Juliet. Where the Sun Rises is a wonderful book about family, love, promise, hope, and perseverance. Be ready to laugh, cry, and cheer.” ~San Francisco Book Review

“[An] atmospheric romance … Gomez and Polaha’s descriptions of Hawaii are postcard worthy. The breezy pace and gorgeous setting will stoke readers’ wanderlust.” ~Publishers Weekly

“A sweet, closed-door, multicultural romance [that] will resonate with readers.” ~Booklist
