Ship Wrecked (Spoiler Alert #3)

The illustrated cover of Olivia Dade's SHIP WRECKED, featuring a cerulean blue background and a line drawing of steep cliffs in front of an ocean, with a couple in full color in front. They're both fat and gorgeous, and they're embracing and about to kiss. He's wearing a suit, and she's wearing ripped clothing and leather armor suitable for a Viking shield-maiden.

Maria’s one-night stand—the thick-thighed, sexy Viking of a man she left without a word or a note—just reappeared. Apparently, Peter’s her surly Gods of the Gates co-star, and they’re about to spend the next six years filming on a desolate Irish island together. She still wants him…but he now wants nothing to do with her.

Peter knows this role could finally transform him from a forgettable character actor into a leading man. He also knows a failed relationship with Maria could poison the set, and he won’t sabotage his career for a woman who’s already walked away from him once. Given time, maybe they can be cooperative colleagues or friends—possibly even best friends—but not lovers again. No matter how much he aches for her.

For years, they don’t touch off-camera. But on their last night of filming, their mutual restraint finally shatters, and all their pent-up desire explodes into renewed passion. Too bad they still don’t have a future together, since Peter’s going back to Hollywood, while Maria’s returning to her native Sweden. She thinks she needs more than he can give her, but he’s determined to change her mind, and he’s spent the last six years waiting. Watching. Wanting.

His shipwrecked Swede doesn’t stand a chance.


Ship Wrecked comes out on November 15, 2022 and is available for preorder at Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, and Google Play, as well as The Ripped Bodice and Love’s Sweet Arrow! (For more vendors, please click here.)

Screenshot of a tweet by Olivia Dade of her book described like a Reddit post: "I (25f) fucked the thick-thighed Viking of my dreams & left before he woke up, figuring I'd never see him again...& now we're filming together on a desolate Irish island for 6 yrs, & he's surly as hell. AITA? Actually, fuck that. I made him 0 promises. I'm NTA, *he's* TA."
