Johnnie James is a successful accountant with a prestigious Atlanta firm when her newest client brings Johnnie to Táino Castle, an island fortress once the stronghold of an infamous pirate and now a luxury hotel. The owner, Esteban Ventura, proves to be an elusive package of contrasts, managing to leave Johnnie feeling both frustrated and flattered.

Johnnie finds her sanctuary high above the rocky cliffs in the tower suite, where a wrought iron balcony provides an exquisite view of the sea. But the tower is rumored to be haunted, and Johnnie is quickly introduced to the eerie voices filtering through the castle's labyrinth of darkened tunnels. When pirates begin prowling the placid waters of the Caribbean, Johnnie wonders if the castle's history has forever tainted the surrounding beauty.

The truth behind the man and the castle is shrouded in ancient secrets and timeless greed but in discovering it, will Johnnie lose what she holds most dear?

Lynn Morris made her debut in the writing world as half of the father-daughter team who created the bestselling CHENEY DUVALL, M.D. series. Her first solo novel, The Balcony, probes the clutches of vice and the power of love, providing a riveting and unforgettable ride.
