Unforgettable Island Promise is a historical romantic novel that takes place in the late 1930s at Jekyll Island. A Clubhouse was constructed in the late 1800s by members that purchase the land as a getaway from the northern winds. Once the Clubhouse was outgrown, some members decided to build private cottages that were more like a small mansion to escape the pressures of life stresses. Some of the island workers inhabited the island year round.

He had not spoken to her, but his imagination ran wild causing him to eagerly acquaint himself with her before his thoughts became untamed.
