Welcome to Soul Escapes Cruiseline, where gourmet soul food is served, black movie marathons reign supreme, and there’s always a braider in the hair salon. Some call the cruiseline a black oasis, and it’s so easy to fall in love in an oasis . . .
Chance and Brandi have been friends since the seventh grade. They tell each other everything, except the truth about their feelings for one another. They decide to uncelebrate Valentine’s Day on a cruise to Mexico and while one is running away from the spark between them, the other runs head first into it. The rising Latin American temperatures are no match for the heat between Chance and Brandi, but will they find lasting desire in the fire or will they end up burned?
